King

Leroy King was taken into police custody last evening Attorney General Steadroy Cutie Benjamin has confirmed.

Our reporter who was in Marina Bay yesterday saw several heavily tinted SUV’s and several men believed to be police officers near his home about 5:45pm.

Benjamin said King is scheduled to leave today with the US Marshall where he will face trial for his role in the Allen Stanford 7 billion dollar ponzi scheme.

“He will be leaving Antigua this afternoon,” the minister said.

He could not give further details based on national security reasons.

Reports are that King has accepted his fate and was actually waiting for law enforcement officials to take him into custody.

“Our obligations ends when he leaves our jurisdiction,” Benjamin said.

  1. I take no pleasure in this. At 73, Mr King should be enjoying his senior years, relaxing on the beach, and enjoying our warm weather. It is sad end to a process that was long and drawn out and frankly speaking, wasted resources. Time longer than rope and the deeds done years ago have it’s consequences.

  2. Time to go join his blood brother Alan. Pitty the politicians he was campaigning for cant help him now and will remain behind living high on the hog.

  3. Cool ruler, that is so true, This should be a lesson for everyone, stop stand up for politicians because at the end of the day they will throw you under the bus. Mr King use to bend the rules so Stanford could get what he wanted at the wit of politicians.

  4. I am somewhat sad because of his age but I think he should go and tell the entire truth.

  5. KING’S LAWYER SAW DOLLAR SIGNS ALL OVER KING. MONEY DONE NOW, SO WHO CARES? KING IS NOW ON HIS OWN SHIP TO SAIL. NOW HE’LL NEED A REAL LAWYER. IS DORSET RECOMMENDING ONE FOR KING. MAYBE SANFORD MIGHT DO SO. MONEY DONE, DIFFERENT TUNE. CAMPAIGNING FOR ABLP, HE SHOULD RELY ON THE PEOPLE HE WAS HELPING CAMPAIGNING. MONEY STRAIGHT…..
