Former Cayman Islands Premier Faces Probe

(Caribbean News Now) GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands -- Police in the Cayman Islands have confirmed that they are pursuing another investigation involving former premier McKeeva Bush, this time regarding the alleged misuse of public funds to pay for limousine services in the United States.
