Inniss ‘would not be tried’ under local law
As far as the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is concerned, embattled member Donville Inniss should not be on trial.
At least, says general secretary Guyson Mayers, not by Barbados law.
“If Mr Inniss’ matter was to be tried under Barbadian law, by now it would have ended because there would be no case against him. Based on what is in the public domain, I am not sure the elements of a charge of money laundering would be satisfied based on the four corners of our domestic legislation,” he said yesterday during a press conference at DLP headquarters, George Street, Belleville, St Michael.
However, Inniss, who is facing three counts of money laundering, was not on trial in Barbados which, said Mayers, an attorney, was the rub. (CA)
