Preliminary inquiry set for pension theft

Charge may go to Grand Court

The former customer relationship manager for the Chamber of Commerce Pension Plan appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday for a mention of the theft charge against him.

Robert William Schultz is accused of stealing CI$294,570.30 from the pension plan between 25 February, 2008, and 26 September, 2011. According to his charge sheet, Tuesday was his 40th birthday.

Attorney Ben Tonner asked Chief Magistrate Nova Hall for a date on which a preliminary inquiry could be held. Such an inquiry is held to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to send the matter to Grand Court.

The chief magistrate set the matter for Tuesday, 17 April.

When Schultz first came to court last Thursday, his attorney indicated he would not be making a bail application that day. No application for bail was made on Tuesday either, and the defendant was remanded in custody again until the inquiry.
