Well known medical practitioner Dr. Jephthah Ford has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice in a 2014 criminal case.

The verdict was handed Thursday afternoon by Judge Simone Wolfe Reece before the St. Andrew Parish Court.

Dr. Ford was charged in 2014 following allegations that he attempted to bribe a member of the Revenue Protection Division (RPD) to release two Surinamese nationals who were arrested by the agency.

The foreigners were held after they were found in possession of more than US$533,000 and J$1.3 million at a hotel in Kingston.

The men were charged under the Proceeds of Crime Act after they were unable to explain how they came in possession of the money.

Prosecutors reported that Dr. Ford contacted the investigator and promised him 40 per cent of the cash if he released the men and the money.

The RPD arranged a covert operation to capture Dr. Ford trying to bribe the investigator. Dr. Ford was captured on tape meeting with the investigator and urging him to release the men and the cash.

The tape recordings were played at the trial.

Dr. Ford did not challenge the recordings and admitted that it was him on the tape. He testified that he was trying to entrap corrupt cops who had arrested the Surinamese nationals.

Dr. Ford claimed he had uncovered a plot by the cops to kill the foreigners while they were in custody.

However, Judge Wolfe Reece said she did not believe his story.

Dr. Ford is to return on August 22 for the court to set a date for sentencing.

You have the human trafficking ring, about 6 or 7 years ago it was about to be busted but some high court judge in jamaica was involved and dem cover it. The organ reaping business is a huge business worldwide and here in jamaica plenty society doctors invovled, however it will not be exposed as a so call powerful people involved. The type of things upper class n professionals are into is heart wrenching, no wonder some a them dead bad. Das y when some people die, the doctors dont want nuh atopsy because some people as dem die them open dem n reap them organs. The organ harvesting a gwan years in a jamaica though just that people nuh know because a powerful people invovled. One day one day though, wat happen in darkness must come to light.
