The expenses relate to Mr. Bush’s and his companions’ trips scheduled or taken between 31 August, 2011, and 22 December, 2012.
Excluding a $17,000 credit described as correcting an expense category for a magazine advertisement, the expenditures for accommodations, airfare, credit card reimbursements, “subsistence” payments and other categories total more than $367,000.
More than $230,000 went toward plane tickets, with Cayman Airways the recipient of nearly all those payments. Nearly $87,000 went toward transfers to Mr. Bush’s government credit card. According to the records provided by the Ministry of Finance, Tourism and Development, “accommodations are paid using the credit card.”
