Fraud accused Vicky Boodram during a court appearance in Port-of-Spain in 2016.

Businesswoman Vicky Boodram, who is facing 148 fraud charges, is alleged to escaped from prison sometime between last night and this morning.

According to police, Boodram was scheduled to appear in court today but failed to show.

Boodram was reportedly taken from prison by a police officer. Neither she nor the officer has been seen since. She was scheduled to appear before a Siparia Magistrate today and when she failed to show police and court officials began making queries.

Boodram, who is out on $2 million bail, is also charged money laundering offences. She is also charged with larceny by trick and uttering forged documents. The offences were allegedly committed between 2014 and 2015 where she allegedly advertised a concert featuring a top Indian singer. Several people bought $1,000 tickets but the concert never came off.
