The Calgary woman accused of defrauding a Japanese woman out of more than $2 million in cash and properties, maintains her innocence. In a statement released to the public today, 40 year-old Melissa Holman, president of the Temporary Foreign Workers Association of Canada, says there was no fraud or scam involved, that she had an agreement to transfer the properties in question back to Fusako Kametani when asked and did so. Holman admits that Kametani gave her some money, but noted the Japanese woman is a shareholder in her company. Holman says she is devastated by the false accusations that have been levied against her, and is confident she will be acquitted in a court of law.
