Statement from the Leader of The Opposition On His Son’s Arrest
Friday 10th November 2017
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.”
