On 6th August, the Gleaner in Jamaica reported that Donville Inniss, a former member of parliament and former Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development was arrested and charged with 3 counts of conspiracy to launder money and money laundering.  The US DoJ says the charges stem from Inniss’ acceptance of bribes from a Barbadian insurance company in 2015 and 2016 when he was a public official. It is alleged that between August 2015 and April 2016, he engaged in a scheme to accept approximately $36,000 in bribes from high-level executives of an insurance company headquartered in Barbados and through a dental company and a bank located in New York State.  At the time of the transactions, he was a legal permanent resident of the US residing in Florida and Barbados.
