Cayman News Service(CNS): A 55-year-old man from Newlands has been arrested on suspicion of several corruption offences in connection with an ongoing investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission. He is the fourth person arrested in the unidentified probe, in which three other people have also been arrested since October 2017. So far, no one has been charged in this case. The man, who is not a public officer, was arrested by the ACC officers and their colleagues from the RCIPS yesterday (24 April). He has been released on bail as the inquiry continues.

According to the ACC, the man was arrested for bribery of a public officer, fraud on government and breach of trust, all of which are offences under the Anti-Corruption Law. No details have been revealed regarding the subject of the inquiry but CNS understands it may be related to a customs investigation.

Previous arrests in this particular case include a 31-year-old woman from Bodden Town who was arrested in October 2017, a 22-year-old man arrested last May, and a 35-year-old man in June, both from George Town.

All three were arrested for the same offences of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Officials confirmed at the time of his arrest that the 35-year-old man was not a public officer.
