By Global News Correspondent

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands — A major developer residing in the Turks and Caicos Islands was arrested and questioned last week by the special investigation and prosecution team looking into allegations of widespread corruption in the previous Progressive National Party (PNP) government.

According to reliable sources, the person was arrested on suspicion of having bribed former ministers and was released after questioning. While his name is being withheld due to the ongoing investigative process, he is otherwise well known and was connected to certain PNP officials in media reports years ago.

This arrest is part of the process currently underway in the Turks and Caicos Islands that was spoken about by Colin Roberts, Britain’s director of Overseas Territories during his visit here recently.

“The team is weaving a net wide and deep and is closing all its holes,” Roberts said.
