Legal council investigates Wildman
2013-03-07 09:20:01 | (0 Comments)
The General Legal Council (GLC) is investigating reports that former Cash Plus Liquidator Hugh Wildman is representing former Cash Plus boss Carlos Hill.
Attorney-at-law Hugh Wildman- File.
Chairman of the GLC, Michael Hylton, says the Canons of Professional Ethics Rules that govern the profession very clearly forbid a conflict of interest.
Hylton explained that when the GLC is aware of allegations, it does not rely on media reports but instead conducts its own investigation to get the facts.
He also said it would not be appropriate for him to comment on the matter while it is being investigated.
When Hill's case came up for trial on Monday in the Home Circuit Court, Wildman said he was retained by Hill to assist in the liquidation process.
Wildman, who was the former Trustee in Bankruptcy told The Gleaner this week that Hill did not pay him to represent him.
He said he was only assisting to ensure that the depositors get back their money because they are suffering severe financial hardships.
Hill, who is being represented by attorneys-at-law Valerie Neita Robertson and Deborah Martin is charged with fraudulently inducing persons to invest in Cash Plus.
The case was put off until next week Monday.
