Former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis was asked for comment on the arraignment of former cabinet minister Lanisha Rolle by members of the media outside of the House of Assembly on Wednesday.

Dr. Minnis said, “I don’t know anything other than what I’ve seen. So I would have the same information as the general public, nothing else.”

Minnis also said, “every Bahamian in our society is innocent until proven otherwise.”

In February 2021 while serving as Prime Minister, Dr. Minnis ordered a lockdown and audit of the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture where Lanisha Rolle served as minister. Minnis also accepted Rolle’s resignation from that ministerial post.
