The Barbadian government is calling for the police to launch an investigation into former government minister Donville Inniss, who was indicted earlier this week in the US on charges of conspiracy to launder money and money laundering.
Attorney General Dale Marshall made the call for investigation of the former industry, international business, commerce and small business development minister during a post-cabinet press conference on Thursday.
Mr. Inniss's indictment followed his alleged acceptance of bribes from a Barbadian insurance company in 2015 and 2016.
Mr. Marshall said the victims are the people of Barbados who have paid their money into the insurance company.
He said he does not think the commissioner of police should wait until someone makes a complaint to start a probe into the matter.
