Donville Inniss, the former Minister of Industry and Member of Parliament in Barbados, was convicted, on January 16, 2020, of three counts of money laundering, in US District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Inniss, who was a permanent resident of the US, and divided his time between Tampa, Florida and Barbados, used a dental firm in New York to launder bribes paid to him to steer over $100m of insurance upon government property located in Barbados.
Innis, who received approximately $36,000 in illegal compensation, now faces sentencing on two counts of money laundering and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. We have previously covered his case, in an article entitled Who says the United States is not Going After Corrupt Caribbean Officials for Bribery* ? filed August 9, 2018.
