Inniss stands ‘alone’
WHEN FORMER CABINET MINISTER Donville Inniss appears in a federal district court in Brooklynin late October to answer conspiracy and money laundering charges, he will face the legal music all alone.
Absent will be two of his alleged co-conspirators in the reported bribery scheme involving the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Ltd (ICBL) – Ingrid Innes, the company’s former chief executive officer, and Alex Tasker, then senior vice-president, when the alleged offences occurred in 2015 and 2016.
At that time, Inniss was Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development.
“Inniss will go on trial alone in the fall,” explained John Mazulli, public information spokesman for the office of the US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, in response to a MIDWEEK NATION inquiry on whether Inniss and his alleged co-conspirators would be tried together or separately.
