The money laundering charges stem from the alleged acceptance of $36,000 in bribes from high-level executives of an insurance company headquartered in Barbados, and laundering that money through the United States in 2015 and 2016 while being a Minister.  

He was released on US $50,000 bond and as part of his bail conditions he has been instructed not to communicate with any of the alleged co-conspirators.  

He returns to court on October 23, 2018.
