Cash Plus boss Carlos Hill on Wednesday walked out of the Home Circuit Court in Kingston a free man after the fraud case against him collapsed.

Most witnesses in the long-running case reportedly could not be located, forcing the prosecution to offer no evidence against Hill.

Justice Chester Stamp subsequently ordered the jurors to return a verdict of not guilty.

Hill was charged with fraudulently inducing persons to invest in his alternative investment scheme, which collapsed in 2008.

More details to come.
