The former executive secretary of the Board of Education (BoE), Gisele Isaac is heading to the High Court to answer 18 charges of larceny, corruption and conversion, which are related to pay increases she received during her tenure at the BoE.
Yesterday, in the St John’s Magistrates’ Court, Isaac was committed to stand trial before a judge and jury in the September Criminal Assizes.
But Isaac, who has previously been committed to the High Court on similar charges, said the delayed process seems as if it has been designed to frustrate her.
“I’ve been waiting since last June and September for the last two cases and I have not been on the docket for them. I suppose the intention is to have me wait five or six years. Since June 2015 — two years have already gone since this started and I have not gotten a date in the High Court,” she told OBSERVER media yesterday.
On May 19, 2016, Isaac was slapped with six counts of larceny, corruption and conversion relating to pay raises she received between 2010 and 2014.
The United Progressive Party Chairman was granted $200,000 bail for the offences and was required to pay $50,000 to be released from police custody several months ago.
