The Premier of the Cayman Islands, McKeeva Bush, is insisting on his innocence following corruption allegations against him in his home country.

Bush was released from police custody yesterday, after he was arrested on Tuesday in relation to financial irregularities.

Speaking to graduads of the University College of the Caribbean’s (UCC) Fall 2012 Commencement ceremony this afternoon he showed no sign of worry.

Bush later told reporters that he has done nothing wrong and said he will not be stepping aside as premier.

The embattled premier was scheduled to receive an honorary Doctor of Public Service degree from UCC for his years of service as Cayman’s longest serving legislator.

However, the institution decided to withhold the honorary degree pending the outcome of the investigation in the Cayman Islands.

Bush has been in involved in governance for 28 years.
