Former Cayman Islands Premier McKeeva Bush will face trial in September next year over allegations that he illegally used his government credit card at various hotels and casinos in the U.S. and the Bahamas.
A trial date had originally been tentatively scheduled for March, 2014. In a brief hearing at Grand Court on Friday, Justice Seymour Panton, agreed to push that back to Sept. 8 next year because of other commitments of the attorneys involved.
Mr. Bush faces two charges of misconduct in public office relating to alleged dishonest use of a government-issued credit card in 2009. He is also charged with four counts of breach of trust by a member of the Legislative Assembly, also relating to alleged dishonest use of a government-issued credit card between September 2009 and March 2012.
