FNM CHAIRMAN Darron Cash has reached an “amicable agreemeent” with the Attorney General’s Office and the Commissioner of Police concerning his “violation of his rights” case, according to his lawyer Carl Bethel.
Speaking outside of the Supreme Court yesterday, while not releasing the details of the agreement, Mr Bethel told reporters his client was satisfied with the outcome.
“The parties in the matter, the party Chairman Mr Cash, the Attorney General and the Commissioner of Police, represented by their counsel, have arrived at an amicable solution,“ he said.
“A solution, which in the view of my client, vindicates his having brought this matter to court on the basis that his rights were violated, which also acknowledges the right of the police to conduct a lawful investigation. “
Earlier this month, police officers seized two laptops and a smart cellular phone, the property of Mr Cash, during a search of his home as part of an investigation into leaked files at the Bank of the Bahamas. Two days later, Mr Bethel, on behalf of Mr Cash filed a constitutional motion in the Supreme Court, arguing that Cash’s rights had been violated.
While Mr Cash’s items were not returned, Mr Bethel said he is satisfied that his clients privacy, in respect to his personal and political business, would not be violated.
The Free National Movement has branded the search of Cash’s home as a witch hunt.
