Marlene’s husband also questioned by police

Michael Carew


While most of the attention sourrounded Public Administration Minister Marlene McDonald, her husband Michael Carew was also arrested and questioned by Police yesterday in connection with the Cal­abar and Wa­ter­wheel Foun­da­tion. A third and still unnamed NGO was also mentioned

The investigation sourrounded monies dis­bursed to those or­gan­i­sa­tions from the Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ty De­vel­op­ment and Cul­ture and involved ap­pli­ca­tions for state fund­ing made to the min­istry, then head­ed by Mc­Don­ald, which were al­leged­ly expidited and ap­proved by the min­is­ter.

The mon­ey allegedly dis­bursed via cheques signed by the then Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary Her­mia Tyson-Cuffie who is the wife of Min­is­ter in the Min­istry of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion Max­ie Cuffie, was then stated to be used for char­i­ta­ble work but was however al­leged­ly mis­ap­pro­pri­at­ed.
