FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS IS ON BRINK OF WALKING FREE AS 6-YEAR £75 MILLION CORRUPTION TRIAL IS HALTED

On 13 February, the Daily Mail reported that the former prime minister of the Turks and Caicos Islands is on the brink of walking free after his 6-year corruption trial was halted following the death of its judge.  Michael Misick, 55, resigned as premier of the islands, which is a British Overseas Territory, in 2009, after a UK commission found a ‘high probability of systemic corruption’.  The former premier, who has attracted celebrities including Michael Douglas to the islands, fled to Brazil but was extradited in 2014.  However, the future of the investigation is now uncertain following the death of Mr Justice Paul Harrison, 84, who died at his home in Jamaica.
