The state officials investigating the action of former registrar of the High Court, Tamara Gibson-Marks, are said to have found that some EC$300,000 from an account that she held in trust is unaccounted for.
Attorney General Judith Jones-Morgan asked Marks to resign last week Wednesday after a meeting between the two officials, Prime Minister and Minister of Legal Affairs Ralph Gonsalves told I-Witness News earlier this week.
He further said the Commissioner of Police and the Director of Audit have been notified of the development, and other important state agencies could become involved.
I-Witness News understands that so far state officials probing the development have uncovered a series of unauthorised withdrawals from the account, in which some EC$600,000 was deposited when it was opened at a local bank a year ago.
“Some EC$250,000 was legitimately withdrawn from the account, but the transactions record suggests that that there were several unauthorized withdrawals, the most recent being EC$22,000 in March,” a source told I-Witness on condition of anonymity, because they are not authorised to speak to the media.
Another source, who also asked not to be identified, told I-Witness News that depending on the outcome of the investigation, the former registrar could be asked to show cause as to why she should not be barred from practising law.
I-Witness News understands that Marks left St. Vincent for St. Lucia shortly after her resignation.
