Turks & Caicos ex PM hides here to avoid arrest, AFP
Santo Domingo.- INTERPOL on Monday issued a warrant to arrest Michael Misick ex prime minister of the Turks & Caicos, in connection with a probe into corruption by British authorities, AFP reports.
Misick, who could be in Dominican Republic, resigned in 2009 in the wake of a money laundering and bribery scandal in the British territory on the Northern Caribbean.
That same year queen Elizabeth named Gordon Wetherall in the post for the next two years, as recommended by the same British investigation commission that requested the warrant.
“In the last few months Mr. Misick has been given all the opportunities to voluntarily surrender (to authorities) to be questioned. But although his personnel stated he would attend, didn’t do so,” said the investigation team in a statement which requested INTERPOL’s action.
Misick’s whereabouts have yet to be determined but the islands’ local media report he was recently seen in neighboring Dominican Republic.
