THE NEVER-ENDING TRIAL OF FORMER CAYMAN ISLANDS PREMIER MICHAEL MISICK, 4 FORMER MINISTERS AND 4 ASSOCIATES

Private Eye in its latest edition carries an article saying that a trial lasting more than 3 years would rightly be rejected as absurd.  That such a legal marathon should still be running and have only reached the halfway stage, with the defendants yet to give evidence, would justly be laughed out of court – but this case, involving alleged corruption, fraud and money laundering, is continuing.  It points out the that the $30 million cost to date represents almost $1,000 per head of the 35,000 population of the small country.
