Issues with disclosure are creating further delays for a case involving the owners and comptroller of a construction company facing fraud charges.

The case involving brothers Randall Myles Clarke, 53, and William Leger Clarke, 54, former co-owners of Myles-Leger, and former company comptroller Terrence M. Reardon, 52, was back in St. John’s provincial court Wednesday morning. Judge David Orr agreed to delay the case until April 7.

The charges relate to alleged fraudulent activity covering a four-year period from January 2000 to May 2004. Myles-Leger, a company involved in the development and construction of condominiums and residential subdivisions, declared bankruptcy in 2004.

The three men each face 38 counts of fraud plus one count of conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

William J. Parsons, a former lawyer based in Mount Pearl who is now disbarred, is facing the same charges. His case is scheduled to return to provincial court on Thursday.

William (Bill) Clarke is presently involved in a separate court matter. Earlier this month, Powder House Hill Investments filed a $9-million lawsuit in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador against the Anglican Church's Diocesan Synod of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador in relation to a property in St. John’s and whether or not an agreement of purchase or sale is in place. Clarke owns that company, which had plans to develop a 90-unit subdivision on the land.

    Let me see if I can get this straight. One of the three defendants charged with 38 counts of fraud and one count of conspiracy, from 2000 to 2004, has now sued the Anglican Church for 9 million dollars, in a separate court matter ?. Why haven't the charges from 2000 to 2004 been dealt with by the court ? Makes one wonder what's going on behind closed doors.
