Former Cayman premier Mckeeva Bush says he has been vindicated
Former premier of the Cayman Islands, McKeeva Bush says he has been vindicated after being found not guilty of corruption charges.
Bush was freed yesterday by a seven-member jury.
He was charged with 11 counts of misconduct in public office and breach of the public’s trust.
He was also accused of misusing government funds.
However, in a statement, Bush maintained his innocence and said the charges brought against him were nothing more than a conspiracy to remove him from office.
He says the ordeal has caused him stress, severe financial loss, and embarrassment.
According to him, the country’s reputation was also damaged.
The former Cayman premier thanked his family and well-wishers for their support during the trial and has pledged to continue to contribute to the country’s development.
