Cash plus boss gets reprieve

KINGSTON, Jamaica – An agreement was reached Monday in the Supreme Court for former Cash Plus boss, Carlos Hill, to continue to live in the house which he previously owned at 94 East Armour Heights, St Andrew, for the next 14 days.

Hill faced eviction Monday morning.

Attorney-at-law Hugh Wildman, who is trustee in bankruptcy and provisional liquidator for Cash Plus, sent some of his employees to the house to see to Hill’s removal. Wildman said he had notified Hill up to last week that he should leave the premises by Saturday.

Wildman also hired a truck from the National Solid Waste Management Authority to remove Hill’s belongings.


Policemen were on hand to ensure that no breaches were committed. However, when they went to the premises, Hill showed them a copy of an application he had filed in the Supreme Court seeking an order to remain in the house. Hill was also seeking to challenge the judge’s April order, which had given Wildman the go-ahead to sell the property.

Hill’s application went before Revenue Court Judge Roy Anderson yesterday afternoon.

The judge advised the parties to arrive at an agreement. Hill was represented by attorney-at-law Yvette Sterling, who is representing the Hill Group.

Hill, in seeking to stay in the house, contended that he had nowhere to go because no one would rent him anywhere to live.

Wildman agreed that Hill could stay at the house for the next seven days. It was also agreed that at the end of that period, a notice would be served on Hill to vacate the premises within a further seven days.
