THE initial Supreme Court hearing into whether the constitutional rights of FNM chairman Darron Cash have been violated will take place on Wednesday.

A constitutional motion seeking redress for the violation of his constitutional right to privacy was filed on Thursday by his attorney, Carl Bethel.

Though Mr Bethel said he had hoped to go before a judge yesterday, a Senior Justice will hear the case on Wednesday, the Tribune can confirm. 

On Thursday, police raided Mr Cash’s home, seizing two laptop computers and a cellular smart phone belonging to him.

Mr Cash’s two small children were reportedly whisked away by the family’s housekeeper in an attempt to shield them from the dramatic ordeal which came as a result of an ongoing investigation into operations at the Bank of the Bahamas (BOB).

Tribune needs read the Supreme Court documents to see, if they support the media's reporting that; "the items were 'grabbed from his (Daron's) hands' and taken by the CDU? Note, that claim is no longer visible in this newest story.

When dealing with these high profile investigations involving high ranking members of government with responsibility of the publics trust, one would think a Police or A.G's Office press conference to address the citizens concerns would take place. So if there is nothing to hide police press conference in 5 4 3 2 1 oooops my count down button must be broken.. Lastly when generating a warrant a probable cause statement of some sort is usually included and since this is public record, black out the name and address & post it so we can read the fact, its 2014 people time to open up this closed up system so the public can make decisions of who's right and wrong for themselves. POST THE WARRANT WE CAN READ IT FOR OURSELF.. FURTHERMORE SINCE BOB IS A GOVERNMENT ENTITY POST THE BOOKS SO THE PUBLIC CAN READ, OTHER THAN PERSONAL DATA GENERAL NUMBERS CAN BE POSTED.. OPEN THE SYSTEM & CUT OUT THE B.S.

Tal: You are being your typical A Hole. Whether they were grabbed or taken what is the difference? If the day comes when you are holding the s..ty end of the stick you will know what it is like and in my opinion it cannot be soon enough. When wrongs are committed and no one speaks out against it the day will come when there will no one to speak for you. Now go find your hole and crawl back in it.

Are you being serious or just red? The perception which has been carefully painted by the media is that the attending police officers "grabbed stuff from Comrade Daron's hands?"That they were rude and scared the living hell out of the Cash family. If true, it should be swiftly, openly dealt with by the Commish but, if not, it matters a damn lot. Perception, particularly in we Bahamaland, matters more than facts, or does it? Children whisked away, but not for the reasons the media wants us to believe? I presume the Tribune is already in possession of copies of the Supreme Court documents. Read the damn papers.

The Constitutional issue here does not turn on whether items were "grabbed" or "requested and taken. The demeanor of the police is a managerial issue, not a Constitutional one. The Constitutional issue is whether a valid warrant was legally obtained and whether it is Constitutional for police when serving such a warrant, to refuse to leave a copy with the person on whom it was served.

Comrade let me remind you, to loan credibility to the original story, is to believe that the original tone of the incident, did in fact take place as narrated by the media, which in my viewpoint, invites readers to question, what NO media sources have yet to collaborate, as facts. Comrade might I remind you, media coverage occurred BEFORE an action was filed before the Supreme Court, so its relativity is not to be so easily red dismissed. Calls for the police to have held a press conference when an high profiled citizen is involved is hogwash, cause since when does it become a police obligation to hold a press conference on an active investigation? Besides, when in the hell did Comrade Daron become "high profile?"

This is of national importance in more ways than one (politics, banking, law, personal liberty, pubic finance etc) To take ONE week to hear the case is not SWIFT JUSTICE................ in my opinion

Here is what is so sublime and obvious about this. If BOB supposedly feels Mr. Cash divulged private client information to the public and they hence supposedly made a criminal complaint, but some people want to say his wife gave him the information, then why is she still employed there? If her employers believed she broke the law by leaking private information to anyone, spouse or otherwise, they would have already fired her months ago, and also made a criminal complaint to law enforcement about such activity. Clearly her employers don't believe she has done anything illegal else they would have dealt with her, but yet her employers supposedly made a criminal complaint about her spouse instead? The government takes us all for ignoramuses. What's more, the FNM hasn't even been the ones telling us jack sprat about BOB anyway. They are never on the ball with exposing these kinds of things even though they should be. Were it not for the Punch, we would never have found out what's happening since the rest of these other "real newspapers" dont reveal much of consequence to the public either. Seems all the other news departments pretended they didnt see everything the Punch exposed about BOB because they certainly have not been reporting the details to us. They all deride the Punch as being a "rag". Well atleast this time it appears the "rag" has done us some good.

First off according to Darron no warrant was presented.

Secondly this is not an investigation. This is PLP distraction and bullying. Period...
