Jamaica: Two lawyers disbarred over professional misconduct

Attorneys Michael Lloyd Wilson and Leonardo Fernando Christie have been struck off the list of lawyers authorised to practice in Jamaica.

Wilson and Christie, in separate cases, were previously found guilty of professional misconduct by the Disciplinary Committee of General Legal Council (GLC) and were last month disbarred. 

In Wilson’s case, the British attorney was convicted in England in 2016 for laundering Â£100,000 from a fine wine investment scam and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Wilson, who was found guilty of possessing criminal property, was disbarred and was also disqualified from acting as a director of any company for seven years.
