McKeeva Bush’s next court date is 28 June

The case was mentioned in Grand Court on Friday, but no details were discussed

Former Premier McKeeva Bush appeared in Grand Court on Friday morning, when charges against him were set for mention again on Friday, 28 June. 

Defence attorney Michael Alberga and Crown counsel Laura Manson told Justice Nova Hall that the date had been agreed between them.  

The defendant was bound over to return on that date and his bail was continued. 

Attorney Steve McField also attended but did not address the court. 

No details of the charges were discussed.  

The defendant is a candidate for the district of West Bay in the general election set for 22 May. 

Mr. Bush served as premier until 18 December, 2012, when he was removed from office via a no-confidence vote against his government. But he continued to serve as member of the Legislative Assembly until parliament was dissolved in preparation for the new elections.  

Charges against him were detailed after his first court appearance on 12 April. Allegations include dishonest use of a government-issued credit card. 

Two charges of misconduct in public office and four charges of breach of trust by a member of the Legislative Assembly can be dealt with only in the Grand Court, so they were transmitted to the higher court along with five theft charges for mention.
