Friday 31st, May 2013 / 08:22 Published by

Canadian police believe Old Fort Bay resident Pamela Porter conspired with her husband to launder millions of dollars, according to an arrest warrant obtained by The Tribune.

The warrant accused the couple of conspiring together to commit an indictable offence, namely: recycling of proceeds of crime between July 1, 2009 and December 31, 2012.

The Porters were arrested in Panama City during a connecting flight from Nassau to Trinidad and Tobago.

According to reports, police stopped Dr Porter and his wife at the Tocumen airport on Sunday night. Mrs Porter was apprehended immediately; however, Dr Porter was said to have evaded arrest after he presented his diplomatic passport from Sierra Leone. The Old Fort Bay resident was picked up the following day after Panamanian authorities consulted with the Attorney General’s office in Nassau.

The Sierra Leone-born Porter is a physician and cancer specialist who faces six fraud-related charges stemming from the construction of the US$1.3 billion McGill University Health Centre in Montreal. Porter was director of the hospital when the alleged fraud is said to have occurred between 2008 and 2011.
