Guyanese journalist charged with stealing and forgery in Grenada
Published on April 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada -- Rawle Nelson, a Guyanese freelance journalist, has been charged by police in Grenada with two counts of stealing, forgery and uttering a false document from his former employer, Times Caribbean reported.

Rawle Nelson
Nelson, who has lived and worked in a number of Caribbean islands including St Kitts and Antigua, began work in Grenada in July 2013 as a consultant and managing editor with a local media company Moving Target. The company owns a television station and the Grenada Informer news outlet.

According to Times Caribbean, Nelson recently resigned from the company but it is understood before resigning the accounting and marketing staff realised that there were a significant amount of financial matters outstanding, and upon investigation it was found that Nelson had personal information that could have cleared up the outstanding matters.

He was summoned to a meeting with the company on Wednesday and it was during that meeting the company made a decision to hand over the matter to the Royal Grenada Police Criminal Investigations Department.

On Friday morning he was charged with two counts of stealing by reason of employment a total of EC$15,140.64 and EC$253.64; forgery and uttering a false document. The police are continuing to investigate the matter and Nelson may be facing more charges.

He is also the owner of a marketing company called Optimum Solutions and it is believed that most of the missing funds were diverted to the account of Optimum Solutions.

He is expected to make his first court appearance on Tuesday in Grenada.
