Former T&C premier’s assets frozen worldwide

| 04/07/2011

(Turks & Caicos Sun): The assets of Michael Misick, the former Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, have been frozen world-wide. Documents obtained by The SUN revealed that on June 23rd, 2011, Chief Justice His Lordship Gordon Ward made the order to freeze all of Misick’s assets, including bank accounts here and overseas, his personal residence in Providenciales, parcels of land throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, two condominiums, a cinema in Providenciales which still carries a variation of his ex-wife Lisa-Raye McCoy’s name, and several credit cards. The freezing order, which was made by Special Prosecutor Helen Garlick, clearly states: “This Order prohibits you Michael Misick, the alleged offender, from dealing with all of your assets wherever they may be situated in the world and in whosever name the same assets may be held.”

It goes on to state: “This Order prohibits all of the persons, real or otherwise, named…from dealing with all or any of the assets in which the alleged offender has an interest whether directly or indirectly wherever they may be situated in the world and in whosever name the said assets may be held.”

    Hmmm…

    If they have evidence of a crime committed, the UK authorities should at least do the right thing, and arrest Michael Misick and bring him before TCI's Courts to be tried.

    Still haven't heard anything about prosecuting this man that has been accused of political corruption.

    The UK (author of the common law) should do the right thing!

    Looks like we know where to put our regional prison, and not a moment too soon.

      Why is it that we cannot get a "Special Prosecutor Helen Garlick" in Cayman? We sure as hell need Helen in Cayman right NOW!

        It hasn't gotten that far yet –  the process, that is, not the level of corruption.

    TIME TO APPLY THE SAME PROCESS  in Cayman and seize the assets of all offenders who have enriched themselves through corruption at the expense of the country, our reputaion and the people.

    RETURN STOLEN ASSETS TO THE PEOPLE.

    Good job! Hopefully Cayman's Powers will take note!

    Though i'm quite sure that "some" will not!….and "some" will likely continue to think and act as if they are above the laws and ethical responsibilities that Political office "should" call for, and be seen as!

    Thanks to the increasing numbers of people who are standing up for "Transparency and Acountability" so as to improve "Good Governance".
