National Arts Gallery chairperson gets 7 year jail sentence over $1,5 million fraud
National Arts Gallery deputy chairperson Rosetta Elizabeth Peters was yesterday slapped with a seven-year jail term after being convicted alongside her co-directors in a company called Paroan Trucking (Pvt) Limited, for swindling a local farmer of $1,5 million.
Peters was on Friday last week convicted of the offence together with Edmund Christopher Peters (61), and Hebron Thomas Peters. However, the trio will serve an effective three-year jail term each after regional magistrate Elijah Makomo suspended three years on condition of restitution and a year on condition of good behaviour.
They were given up to March 31 next year to pay the restitution.
