Inniss arrives at court for sentencing
Former Government minister Donville Inniss arrived at the Eastern District Court of New York at 1:53 p.m. today for sentencing.
The case is being heard by United States Judge Kiyo Matsumoto.
Inniss was accompanied by his wife Gail and attorney Joel Hirschhorn.
Moments later, former Attorney General of Barbados Adriel Brathwaite and Rev. Guy Hewitt also appeared and entered the court.
Inniss was convicted 15 months ago on two counts of money laundering and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
He was also fined US$36 000, the exact amount of money he received in bribe payments from the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Ltd (ICBL).
Inniss was first charged in August 2018 and found guilty in January 2020. He is facing a sentence between five to eight years, but his legal team stated its intention to appeal. (MB)
