Hon. McKeeva Bush’s lawyer responded to calls for the embattled Speaker of the House and West Bay MLA to step down, saying Mr. Bush will be owed an apology when his recent legal issue is resolved.
In a statement to Cayman 27, Attorney Keith Seltzer writes:
“Mr. Bush has been wrongfully arrested in south Florida.
We fully expect that once the prosecuting attorney has an opportunity to review the evidence and speak with the complainant – she will come to the conclusion that Mr. Bush did not commit any crime and will decline any prosecution of Mr. Bush.
“The sad thing about all of this is that Mr. Bush has faithfully served the people of Grand Cayman for over 30 years and is now being subjected to this ridiculous treatment over his wrongful arrest for a misdemeanor offense.
“In due time Mr. Bush will be vindicated and sincere apologies will need to be presented to him.”
On Monday, Mr. Bush was arrested after a casino employee said he grabbed her buttocks.
