Second day of grilling looms for SSL fraud suspect

The former Stocks & Securities Limited (SSL) employee implicated in the multibillion-dollar fraud at the investment firm was grilled by police investigators during a question-and-answer session on Tuesday.

Attorney Tamika Harris, who is representing the woman, confirmed to The Gleaner that a team from the Fraud Squad led the five-and-a-half-hour-long interrogation.

However, Harris would not disclose the nature of the questions.

It comes weeks after news emerged of an approximately $3-billion fraud scandal at the company affecting at least 40 clients.

Retired track and field legend Usain Bolt is among the affected account holders.

The former employee is said to have confessed to defrauding several accounts of millions of dollars.

The question-and-answer session is to continue today.
