THE WAY is now clear for the Government to begin the legal process of seeking to take possession of properties and other assets valued at more than $220 million that have been traced to former Manchester Parish Council official Sanja Elliott.
Already, the properties and assets, which include an apartment complex consisting of 11 units, a four-storey family house, four residential lots, six high-end motor vehicles, as well as a Honda Ridgeline, and several bank accounts, have been frozen by the Supreme Court.
“He [Elliott] is going to lose everything,” one law enforcement source predicted yesterday.
Elliott, the former deputy superintendent in charge of roads and works, was one of three former MMC officials who were found guilty in the Manchester Parish Court yesterday for their roles in a scheme used to defraud the local government authority of approximately $400 million.
The other ex-officials are David Harris, former secretary-manager and finance director and Kendale Roberts, former temporary works overseer.
