FNM deputy questioned by police

Free National Movement (FNM) Deputy Leader Shanendon Cartwright was questioned by police over the weekend in relation to their investigation into contracts issued by the Bahamas Public Parks and Beaches Authority, The Nassau Guardian understands.

Cartwright served as the executive chairman of the authority during the Minnis administration.

He was at the state reception for the president of Botswana on Wednesday night.

Since coming to office in 2021, the Davis

 administration has raised alarm over contracts issued by the authority.

Last year, Chairman of the Bahamas Public Parks and Public Beaches Authority McKell Bonaby claimed there appeared to be no checks and balances in place regarding the issuance of contracts.

But Cartwright has, on multiple occasions, defended his tenure.

In the House of Assembly last year, he said, “I deny and reject any suggestions or accusations that I participated in any willful wrongdoing or knew of any wrongdoing.”

Police have not yet commented publicly on the investigation.
