Statement by Hon. Philip ‘Brave’ Davis Q.C.
“Today my adult son and several other young men were charged before the courts for possession of a firearm. This is a very unfortunate event and is obviously causing my family considerable embarrassment and distress.
I have confidence in the professionalism of the officers of the Royal Bahamas Police Force and our judicial system.
As with any other citizen of the Bahamas, I would not expect my son to receive any special favour nor to be treated unfairly due to his relation to me.
I love my son and he has been admonished to distinguish between right and wrong, and I am satisfied that he knows the distinction.
At the end of the day, the chips will fall where they may. No one is above the law!
As a father, I will stand by and support my son and family during this ordeal.”
