Amandala Belize’s Leading Newspaper has an online presence. Author: Adele Ramos posted this story on 15/07/2008 - 01:18 PM: Clarification of First Caribbean Bank charges. (First Caribbean has assets of around US$10 billion, and has operations in 15 Caribbean

Federal authorities on Monday arrested an Army major on charges that he took almost $10 million in bribes and expected $5.4 million more on military contracts he had rigged. A handful of agencies, including investigative arms of the Justice and Defense departments, arrested Maj. John Cockerham, 41, and his wife, Melissa, 40.
Investigators are looking at every contract Cockerham handled — from bottled water to laundry services for American troops in Kuwait and Iraq.
The search netted numerous pages comparing the benefits of various offshore banking havens; account application documents from the First Caribbean International Bank in the name of John Cockerham; a letter from First Caribbean dated June 14, 2005, memorializing a visit by one of his alleged associates; and information establishing offshore bank accounts in Melissa Cockerham’s name, including at a bank in Grand Cayman.
