Jamaican man cleared of bigamy charge in Cayman

A man, who was a victim of the divorce scam in Jamaica, was on Tuesday cleared of a charge of bigamy in Cayman's Grand Court.

The Crown Prosecutor offered no evidence in the case against Jamaican Melvin Samuel Williams.

News of the divorce scam in Jamaica surfaced in October 2017 following the arrest of four persons, including a Supreme Court employee.

The arrests were made by the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC) which charged the suspects with forgery, uttering forged documents, and conspiracy.

Justice Minister Delroy Chuck revealed then that his ministry had discovered that divorce decrees were being signed by fictitious judges.

The Ministry became aware of the scam after persons, who obtained a divorce and later remarried, turned up seeking new marriage licences.
