Couple are found guilty of money laundering

A MARRIED couple were yesterday found guilty of a series of money-laundering offences by the Royal Court.


Michael Doyle, 47, and Belinda Lanyon, 54, were also convicted of carrying out regulated activities within the Bailiwick of Guernsey without a licence from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, which they had also denied.

At the end of a complex hearing that had lasted for the best part of four weeks, jurats were told that the pair had already pleaded guilty to carrying out an act intended to pervert the course of public justice. In November 2012, both had disposed of an unknown quantity of documentary evidence in the Vazon recycling bins which they knew was of material relevance to the ongoing money-laundering investigation.

Jurats were sent out to deliberate at 9.45am and returned to deliver their verdicts at 4.30pm.
