EX-TURKS AND CAICOS PREMIER RELEASED ON BAIL

0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: A former premier of the British-ruled Turks and Caicos was released on bail on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) by the territory’s top court as he faces corruption and bribery charges. Michael Misick was arrested in December in Brazil, where he had applied for refugee status alleging political persecution by British authorities over his efforts to promote possible independence for his homeland, near the Bahamas. He was extradited to the Turks and Caicos on January 7 at the request of the islands’ British rulers.
