BAHAMAS: COURT SETS DATE FOR CORRUPTION TRIAL OF FORMER CABINET MINISTER

On 1st May, the Nassau Guardian reported that a former Cabinet minister accused of corruption while in office will not go to trial until 2020.  Former Minister of Environment, Kenred Dorsett, who served in the Christie Cabinet from 2012 to 2017, was accused of bribery months after the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) was swept from office in a landslide defeat in May 2017; and was the first of 3 PLP members to be accused of abusing their office for financial gain.  Another former minister, Shane Gibson, faces trial in September, and a former Senator and Public Hospitals Authority Chairman, acquitted in January faces an appeal against that acquittal.
