The son of the Cayman Islands’ most prominent judge reportedly received a fine in Jamaica for his role in a drug-smuggling operation.
Media sources in Jamaica report 34-year old David Anthony Smellie was arrested in July after allegedly trying to mail a package to Canada that contained nearly 8.5 ounces of hashish.
One media outlet reports Mr. Smellie is the son of Cayman Islands Chief Justice Hon. Anthony Smellie.
Cayman 27 has been unable to independently verify that claim, but a case registry clerk in Jamaica confirms a case involving a man named David Anthony Smellie concluded on 18 August with the defendant receiving a fine.
A message left for the Chief Justice through his personal assistant seeking comment on the matter was not returned.
