The Shs11bn Embezzlement case has landed Bad Black a four year jail sentence and her lover Meddie Ssentongo 18 months. The same case has left David Greenhalgh not a happy man after court decided that the money should not be refunded.
Justice Catherine Bamugemeireire of the Anti-Corruption Court found Bad Black and Meddie Ssentongo guilty for embezzlement and conspiracy to defraud USD9m and USD 1.7m from Daveshan Development Company.
The issue of compensating David Greenhalgh was ruled out because he did not use due diligence in selecting development partners but opted to trust a prostitute with all that money for business purposes.
On being sentenced, Bad Black was seen discussing with her lawyers before prison wardens asked her to follow them to a waiting double cabin pick-up that was waiting. A friend of hers brought the baby for breast feeding.
Bad Black sat in the hind seat of the pick-up while Meddie Ssentongo was put at the back of the pick up. Meddie Ssentongo had promised to feed his pals with dust in his blue Imprezza which he had cruised with to court but that was driven back by a friend.
The latest is that Bad Black's lawyers intend to appeal the sentence though Meddie has agreed to serve his 18 months. Greenhalgh's lawyer Patrick Farah has filed a civil suit for recovery of the money much as Justice Catherine Bamugemereire ordered that they should NOT refund the money.
