"Lawyer On Trial After Fraud Case"
The Assize trial is taking place in the Royal Court
A JERSEY lawyer accused of helping his accountant father in a multi-million-pound fraud has gone on trial in the Royal Court.
Advocate Justin Peter Michel is alleged to have helped to disguise Peter Michel’s wealth in a bid to stop it being confiscated by the authorities.
Following the Island’s most complex money-laundering investigation ever, the accountant was jailed for six years for a catalogue of offences and had just short of £10m confiscated – less than a third of what prosecutors had said should be taken from him.
Justin Michel denies one charge of perverting the course of public justice between 5 July 2001, when the police investigation into his father started, and 31 October 2009, and claims that the property he was given was payment for legal and other services.
