Former worker confesses to bomb hoax

| 23/12/2013

(CNS): A 53 year old former employee at the Caribbean Club admitted being the man who caused a full scale evacuation of two Seven Mile Beach Resorts when he appeared in court Friday. James Bernie Williams from West Bay who once worked at the Caribbean Club told the court that he was drinking when he made the call to 911 saying there were two bombs about to be detonated at both the Caribbean Club and the Ritz Carlton. Almost a thousand people were evacuated from both of the resorts on Saturday 14 December some of whom were in Cayman for a wedding.  Police closed roads and diverted traffic for several hours until they were able to ascertain that there were no bombs at either location.

Williams’ case was transmitted to Grand Court where he was bailed to appear in the New Year. As a result of his alcohol problems the court ordered him to stay away from booze as part of his bail conditions and to attend a programme at the hospital he was also barred from going within 50 yards of either the Caribbean Club or Ritz-Carlton.
