Cayman Islands leader arrested on corruption charges

By Michael J.W. Stickings


The premier of the Cayman Islands has been arrested as part of a corruption investigation, local police say.

The charges against McKeeva Bush, 57, include misuse of a government credit card and importing explosive materials.

Mr Bush has been in power since his United Democratic Party (UDP) won general elections in 2009.

The British overseas territory is one of the world's largest financial centres and a well-known tax haven.

That's right. The head of the Cayman Islands (not counting that silly monarch across the pond) is a guy named Bush.

Which is really the most fitting name, don't you think?

Other than Romney, of course.
