Patrick Bailey, Jennifer Messado's attorney
Attorney Jennifer Messado, who is under investigation by the police for several cases of fraud, has applied to have her name removed from the roll of attorneys in Jamaica.
An application for the removal was filed on Thursday in the Supreme Court.
This was confirmed by Mrs Messado's attorney, Patrick Bailey, in an interview with RJR News on Friday.
Mr. Bailey said the application will now require the consent of the General Legal Council before it can be approved and Mrs Messado removed from the roll.
Messado, who specialises in real estate transactions, has been arrested several times in recent weeks following allegations of fraud.
The Supreme Court last month granted another order freezing her assets.
She is currently out on bail.
