Police quash rumours of insurance staff arrests

| 11/03/2009

(CNS): The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) has said rumours circulating that the Financial Crimes Unit had arrested a number of workers employed at a local insurance firm are completely unfounded. The police said claims of insurance staff being removed from the offices of British Caymanian by FSU in handcuffs were completely untrue. The RCIPS did, however, confirm that detectives had been working with the company on a possible fraud matter, but at no point were any arrests made.

BritCay has also said that all fraud matters are taken extremely seriously and action will be taken to investigate each and every case. It is understood that the FCU has been and continues to assist the firm regarding an employee who assisted a policyholder in a motor fraud claim. The insurance firm said that this employee had been suspended on Monday, 2 March, but there was no indication by the police that any criminal charges would be brought against the individual.
