TCI Swears In Judge For Corruption Cases

July 11, 2012

Acting Turks and Caicos Governor Patrick Boyle has sworn in Justice Paul Harrison, a Jamaican national, as a Supreme Court Judge to preside over criminal cases arising out of the Commission of Inquiry that began in the territory in 2008.

That commission investigated allegations of high-level corruption in the British Overseas Territory, which led to the UK imposing direct rule on the Turks and Caicos in 2009, and a number of local politician being charged in Court.

Former Turks and Caicos Premier Michael Misick has sought “political asylum” in an unnamed country after Interpol issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with allegations of government corruption. His whereabouts remain unknown.

  1. Making sense... says:

    When the Judge is done there, he can head on to Bermuda.

    • Hmmmmm says:

      Wouldn’t you prefer a British judge?

    • Whistling Frog says:

      I’m assuming its you who hid the corruption where ever it may be… He should probe you azz first…

  2. Nuffin but de Truth! says:

    Dr Who NEXT!

  3. The nitty gritty says:

    Fortunately for Bermuda there is no corruption here only allegations and innuendo from racists
    and self haters.
    We could bring back Dr B. to oversee a non Royal Commission into these false allegations and establish suitable punishment for anyone making utterly false and libelous statements (such as this)
    and perhaps make it unlawful to write the truth under a pen name.
    Bermudians! Stop suffering in silence! Stand up and be counted. Don’t let almost 78% of the population get away with spreading all these false rumors about there being a billion dollar insurmountable debt, or payments that may or may not be in arrears. You are scaring the MPs and putting fear in the Branches.
