An investigation is ongoing as to ascertain how sprint legend, Usain Bolt on how $12.7 million has disappeared from his account with a Jamaican investment firm and is willing to take the case to court if necessary, Bolt’s attorney, Linton Gordon said.
This has sparked criticism over the government’s handling of the case already. One top official was forced to resign in the wake of one of the largest fraud scandals to hit the Caribbean island.
A top official with Bank of Jamaica will take his place as the investigation continues into the Stocks and Securities Ltd. (SSL), a firm based in the capital, Kingston.
Bolt last week was informed that his account balance at Kingston-based Stocks and Securities Ltd. had inexplicably dwindled to just $12,000, lawyer Gordon said.
