Scott Believes Prosecution Against Former Premier was Always Politically Motivated

Shortly after a press conference at the Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU) headquarters this afternoon, TNN’s Trevor Lindsay spoke with Kenneth Randolph Scott, who believes that the prosecution of former PLP Premier the Honorable Dr. Ewart Brown, JP, is and always was politically motivated.

“ It has been politically motivated because of all the positions he took as a Premier,” he said. “ He irritated a lot of people and they vowed to get him back. “ Putting aside the judicial part of it, ten years and 10 million dollars is a lot of time and money [to prosecute someone.]”

Mr. Scott believes that, as Premier, the Honorable David Burt JP, MP, could have had discussions with higher-ups and had the prosecution against Dr. Brown either sped up, concluded or even possibly dropped entirely. Instead, the investigation has just been lingering on and on. He would like to make it clear that this is his personal view and not the view of the committee who is putting the petition to have the prosecution of Dr. Brown either sped up or dropped entirely together.

If HE Rena Lalgie, Governor of Bermuda, chooses to bypass the aforementioned petition by the people of Bermuda, then Mr. Scott believes it will be in the Court’s hands and out of the public’s.
