Inside the Cayman Islands: The 'Operation Tempura' Affair
What began as an investigation into suspected corruption between a police officer and a local newspaper quickly spiraled out of control as the Police Commissioner was suspended and fired, a judge arrested and then awarded substantial damages for wrongful arrest, an attorney disbarred and then re-instated, and many millions of dollars of public funds squandered in what is universally perceived as a national embarrassment.
In this session, panelists with direct knowledge of 'Operation Tempura' will discuss the investigation, seek to explain why it experienced so many problems and offer their views on what it says about the Cayman Islands and its relationship with the United Kingdom.
