A 28-year-old Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officer has been charged under the Anti-Corruption Law and is due to appear in court Monday.
According to the RCIPS, the man has been charged with two counts of corruptly obtaining cash and two counts of breach of trust, contrary to sections 10 and 13 of the law.
Police arrested the man Wednesday in the Newlands area, but did not report the arrest until Saturday – four days later. The officer was arrested on suspicion of soliciting a bribe.
He was off duty at the time of his arrest and has subsequently been suspended from duty. Typically, RCIPS officers charged with crimes are suspended with pay until the disposition of their cases.
