Update, 6:24pm: Police have placed former premier McKeeva Bush on overnight bail, requiring him to present himself again to police on Wednesday afternoon.
According to a release from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service on Tuesday evening, “The re-bailing is to allow the DPP [Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryll Richards] an opportunity to consider all of the evidence currently available and thereafter advise the RCIPS of her decision as to whether charges can be laid.”
A second man, businessman Suresh Prasad, was also questioned by police today, after he and Mr. Bush complied with their bail conditions set in February and reported to police.
Officers of the Financial Crime Unit conducted further interviews with Mr. Bush and collated additional relevant evidence, police said.
“In line with normal procedures, the details from those interviews have been forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions. This is to allow her to consider the latest information along with the previously submitted evidence file,” the statement from police read.
Mr. Prasad, who was arrested in relation to the importation of explosives investigation, has been re-bailed until early April 2013.
Former premier McKeeva Bush who was bailed last month reported back to police for further questioning Tuesday morning.
Mr. Bush was arrested on suspicion of theft and corruption-related offences on 11 December, 2012. He was initially bailed to early February and then re-bailed to Tuesday, 19 March.
“The RCIPS can confirm that the former premier, McKeeva Bush MLA, has answered bail this morning. He will be further interviewed today,” a statement from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service on Tuesday read.
He has not been charged with any crimes.
When Mr. Bush was bailed in February, police said at the time that they were carrying out further investigations in a number of foreign jurisdictions, including locations in Europe, the United States and Asia.
