Couple Charged With Twenty-Six Counts Of Fraudulent Conversion.

RASHEED ALI, 48, and SHERRY DURBAL-ALI, 44, were charged Monday for fraudulent conversion.

DURBAL-ALI, who is listed as the Director of Traveline Travel Agency in Chaguanas, was charged with fourteen counts of fraudulent conversion while her husband, Rasheed, was charged with twelve counts of fraudulent conversion.

The charges stemmed from transactions which took place between 2018 and 2021 during which time, several persons would have paid varying sums of money to the agency to secure travel to and from numerous international and regional destinations.

However, the funds were allegedly never paid to the airline companies by the couple, resulting in the victims being unable to travel.

The suspects were interviewed by officers of both the San Fernando and Port of Spain Fraud Squad offices during the period of September 1st to 5th and later charged for the offences.

They were taken to the Central Police Station Monday and were granted bail by Justice of the Peace Stephen Young in the sum of three hundred thousand dollars to cover all the charges.

They are scheduled to appear virtually at the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court on November 11th, 2021.
