Three former W&E employees charged with defrauding Government

A former Government architect was yesterday charged with multiple counts of defrauding the Bermuda Government.

Kyril Burrows, 47, from Southampton, was charged in Magistrates' Court yesterday morning with three counts of cheating, three counts of obtaining by deception, three counts of false accounting and one charge of attempting to hide illegally gained funds to avoid prosecution.

His wife, Delcina Bean-Burrows, 48, is jointly charged with four of the counts, while Greatfield Carmichael, 61, and Calvin Waldron, 42, are each jointly charged with Mr Burrows on three counts of obtaining by deception.

All of the offences were alleged to have occurred between 2005 and 2008. Mr Burrows, Mr Carmichael, from Hamilton Parish, and Mr Waldron, from Devonshire, are all former Works and Engineering employees.

Mr Burrows and Mrs Bean-Burrows were both represented in court by Richard Horseman, while Mr Carmichael was represented by Larry Mussenden and Victoria Pearman represented Mr Waldron. The four defendants remained silent throughout the proceedings. They were not required to enter a plea, as the charges must be heard by the Supreme Court.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner released each of the defendants on $10,000 bail with a surety, ordering them to return to Magistrates' Court on July 13 for a preliminary inquiry.
