Caribbean Brewery attempts to get confiscated money back

Caribbean Brewery attempts to get confiscated money back

Attorneys for the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and Caribbean International Brewery, the owners of Mine Beer, were back in court today. That’s because the company says the money should not have been taken in the first place. A week ago, the FIU seized three million dollars in cash belonging to the company. The funds were then deposited into the FIU’s account for safekeeping during their investigation. The FIU said in open court today that the money they confiscated on October 7 was the proceeds of tax evasion, money laundering and human trafficking. However, the company’s lawyer, Senior Counsel Dean Barrow says that the FIU has it all wrong. He spoke to the media today.
