One of the most controversial criminal investigations in the history of the Cayman Islands - known as 'Operation Tempura' - will be scrutinized at next month's OffshoreAlert Conference.
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 spent.
Martin Bridger, the former Senior Investigator of Operation Tempura, will discuss the investigation during a conference session that will also include former Cayman Auditor General Dan Duguay and former covert participating informant John Evans. The session will be moderated by journalist Brent Fuller, of Cayman Free Press.
"Inside the Cayman Islands: The 'Operation Tempura' Affair" is one of 22 sessions about international finance that will comprise The 12th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference, which will take place at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach in Miami Beach, Florida on May 4-6.
As in previous years, the conference program showcases high-profile speakers and our industry's most topical sessions and is the premier event for those in the highest end of international finance, attracting 250+ offshore stakeholders from Europe, UK, USA, Canada and key offshore jurisdictions.
