First on cash-for-gold charge


Share post:

JUST OVER A MONTH after the legislation was passed, the first person to be charged under the Precious Metals And Second Hand Metals Act 2013 appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
He is Andre “Pug” Payne, the owner of the Roebuck Street store Brooklyn’s Finest.  
Payne, of Lower Estate, St George, was charged that, between February 28 and March 11 this year, he engaged in the trade or business of a precious metal dealer without a licence.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge that was contrary to Section 4 (1) of the new act.  (HLE)
