THE home of FNM Chairman Darron Cash was raided earlier today by Central Detective Unit officers who said they were in possession of an ex-parte search warrant issued by a Magistrate, as part of the ongoing investigation of the finances of the Bank of the Bahamas.
Mr Cash's wife is an employee at the bank.
According to a press statement issued by Mr Cash's attorneys, two laptop computers and a cellular smartphone were seized from Mr Cash's residence.
The statement said that the items were physically grabbed from his hands.
The officers reportedly refused to leave a copy of the search warrant with Mr Cash.
The statement said Mr Cash is now seeking 'redress for the violation of his Constitutional Right to Privacy' by a motion in the Supreme Court.
