Former Minister of Commerce and International Business Donville Inniss could spend up to 20 years in jail and be fined up to BDS$1 million if convicted of bribery charges in the United States.
Inniss has a date with destiny in a New York courthouse at noon today, when he will be arraigned on three counts of money laundering.
The Eastern District of New York’s press officer John Marzulli told the NATION on Wednesday that based on New York law (18 US Code 1956), the former Member of Parliament would face a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in a federal prison on each count.
Thursday’s arraignment will be heard by US District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, at which time Inniss can enter a plea. (BA)
