Businessman Chavez Allen also known as ‘Pajama Billionaire’ freed yesterday of breaches of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act
Twenty-seven-year-old businessman and social media figure, Chavez Allen also known as ‘Pajama Billionaire’ was freed yesterday (June 14) of breaches of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act.
Allen who operated an entity popularly known on social media as “Billionaires Academy” was accused of organizing a raffle on the platform, without permission from the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission.
The winning prizes for the raffle allegedly included a Mercedes Benz motorcar.
When Allen appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday, Queen’s Counsel Peter Champagnie argued that the case should either start or be dismissed, because it had been dragging on for two years.
Champagnie said the prosecution had failed to secure the attendance and cooperation of a witness from the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission.
Senior Parish Judge Chester Crooks upheld the submissions and dismissed the case for want of prosecution.
