Englishman James Guthrie Q C loses the case reported high fees for the crown’s prosecutions
The FNM Attorney General Carl Bethel has refused to say how much the cases against Shane Gibson and Frank Smith have cost the public purse only to end in abject failure. The first report is that the case was costing 20,000 dollars per day. The Attorney General has denied this but now new information has come that the latest Q C who also lost the case was paid 68,000 pounds per week for his work plus expenses. He reportedly stayed at the British Colonial Hilton for the six weeks of the trial. Not bad to come to The Bahamas for what was a glorified vacation. He should have known that the case was a tissue of lies.
