Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik has withdrawn his services from the Caribbean and pulled the plug on contracts in Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago.
Guyanas Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee said Kerik had put off plans to work as security consultant to the two Caribbean nations because he was still under investigation in the US for alleged ethics violations. Last June, Kerik pleaded guilty to accepting tens of thousands of dollars in gifts from a company that was trying to do business with New York City. Reports from the US indicate that the former commissioner could be indicted on multiple felony counts, including tax evasion, conspiracy to eavesdrop and providing false information.
