Inniss hires ex-AG
Embattled former Government minister Donville Inniss is sticking close to home as he digs in to clear himself of money laundering charges.
Inniss has now officially hired best friend and confidant Adriel Brathwaite to assist him in the money laundering case from a Barbados perspective.
“I have been retained by Donville Inniss to assist in any way necessary with respect to Barbados law in the matter,” Brathwaite, the Attorney General in the previous Democratic Labour Party Administration, confirmed to the Sunday Sun in an interview from New York.
The former politician said Inniss would remain mum for now. “He cannot comment. This matter is far from over, and he will not be speaking to the Press,” Brathwaite said.
Brathwaite believes the case against his DLP colleague “has only now started” and could last probably another 24 months.
“Donville appreciates that the process may take a year or two. He is looking forward to clearing his name in particular for his family,” said the former MP for St Philip South. (BA)
