Defence attorney Matthew Hyatt, who is representing Alysia Moulton White, former vice president of group marketing at Sagicor Group Jamaica, who has been charged in relation to a multi-million dollar fraud at Sagicor Bank, has declared that his client did not authorise and had no knowledge of a $661,000 deposit to her account.

Hyatt was speaking with journalists outside the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court where Moulton White, client care officer Tishan Samuels and former Sagicor Bank employees Tricia Moulton and Malika McLeod were making their first appearances on Tuesday (February 21).

The four women are accused of conspiring and defrauding the US foreign currency accounts of at least six Sagicor customers of approximately $65 million.

Declaring his client innocent of the charges, Hyatt has requested video footage in hopes of revealing who made the deposit to Moulton White’s account. The judge has ordered that full or partial disclosure of the footage, from September 21, 2022 and September 30, 2022, is to be provided on or before March 31.

The charges in relation to Moulton White are specific to the almost $700,000 deposit to her account.
