St. Lucian beats deportation in Grenada (see video)

conchonA deportation application against a St. Lucian woman charged in connection with fraudulent activities in Grenada has been dismissed by that country’s court system, according to media reports.

On Wednesday, a Grenada Magistrate’s Court ruled against deporting 22-year-old Kishael Conchon, who was arrested during a police operation on March 13, 2017, after a quantity of fake ATM cards, MoneyGram and Western Union transfer receipts, along with other items, were found in her possession.

Conchon, who reportedly resides in Grand Anse, St. George’s, Grenada, was charged with three counts of money laundering, two counts of attempt to commit a crime, to wit fraud by false pretense and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Her attorney Derick Sylvester told GBN Television in Grenada on Thursday that Conchon had pleaded guilty to three charges: fraud by false pretense, conspiracy to commit an offense and attempt to commit an offense.

Sylvester said each fined totalled $10,000, which she paid.

He went on to explain that the application for deportation against his client failed because it did not meet the requirements of section 4 (1) of the Immigration Act.

In the video below, Sylvester spoke to GBN about the grounds for the ruling.

  5. She had a good lawyer. Grenada us out of order to want to punish her, then disgrace her by deportation. These islands are small and the communities are interwoven and interrelated. As an OECS member it should not stoop so low to do this to a fellow-islander. This decision to prosecute and deport was paranoid, xenophobic & insular. It runs against the spirit of togetherness existing in the Caribbean waters

    • Grenada need to be tough on crime , because sooner or later it will be drugs. My question is if she had committed that same crime in the USA the same punishment will apply. She should commit her crime in her country, go Grenada be a leader in the carbbean and it will not come like Trinidad or Jamaica
