Opposition MP David Lee Facing Criminal Charges

Opposition Chief Whip David Lee has been charged for misbehaviour in public office and conspiracy to defraud.

Mr. Lee, the Member of Parliament for Pointe-a-Pierre, was today detained and brought before a justice of the peace, and charged. He was released after being given $1 million bail.

The charges are said to be in connection with the purchase of a $2.3 million Mercedes-Benz and whether the $1.4 million in tax exemptions derived may have benefited a party financier.

Leaving the offices of the Financial Investigation Bureau this afternoon, MP Lee told reporters: “This is the PNM at its best,” and said he would give details over the weekend.
