TICO Conviction

Alicia Kielek has been sentenced to two years of probation, including 50 hours of community service, restitution totalling $6,440 (to be paid by Nov. 25, 2021) and an industry ban for the duration of the Order.

Kielek was convicted of two counts of operating as a travel agent without registration on Sept. 20, 2018.

Kielek was previously the supervisor/manager of Intercontinental Travel Bureau, a travel agency that was TICO-registered until its registration was revoked in 2015 due to alleged contraventions of the Travel Industry Act, 2002. Kielek continued to operate without registration, selling travel services to consumers, which they never received.

This is Kielek’s second conviction. In 2016, Kielek pleaded guilty to five counts of operating as a travel agent without registration.

The most recent conviction and sentencing are in relation to two additional individual consumers who came forward with allegations against Kielek, before the first case concluded.
