Nassau, Bahamas: Friends of a former PLP member of Parliament are singing a song on Eric Minnis’ 1981 release. The MP was arrested in Cuba following a police raid in his hotel room. He was having sex with an underage male prostitute. The 1981 hit went, “When ya can’t find ya friends in Nassau dey in Freeport or dey in JAIL!”
No one has seen or can say exactly where the former MP is. Not even his family can confirm where exactly the once sharply dressed pinstriped former parliamentarian is hiding. NOT one statement comes from him. Not one confirmation or denial of the incident comes from him. NO, NOT ONE single press release or email is written and communiqued from him. Not one sound-byte comes from the man who was so quick to capture the lens of the camera. He so loved press attention, he would grab a broom and join street sweepers in the downtown area to make the news.
The British embassy in Jamaica cannot confirm whether the former MP has entered London. The Bahamian ambassador Paul Farquarson stationed in London cannot do the same. The family who says he is in London, according to ZNS, refuse to put a name to their statement now circulated on National TV. The PLPs are tight-lipped over the matter, we forgot GAGGED. The LEADER and the Chair who are authorized to speak on such a matter themselves now appear to be held to that gag order. NOW THAT’S A TIGHT! NOT A WORD HAS COMES FROM THEM! However, ZNS says that someone in the PLP told them what is being reported is not true. Well, if it is not true, please tell that former MP, who suppose to be in London studying law – so they claim – to email this website and tell us how did he come out of that Cuban dungeon? The whole Bahamas wants to know.
We who have done our homework stand by our report. The former MP was arrested! We remind our readers, CUBA when it comes to minors, is NOT like the Bahamas. Nor do they share their criminal matters with any country of the world. Bahamian officials to this day still do not know how many of its citizens sit in the Cuban jails. They do not know where the former MP is either!
Why don’t this lawyer in training get his feet wet, come OUT OF THAT CLOSET and defend his name?
