Arrests in Savvy Entertainment Probe

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) can confirm two people have been arrested in connection with the ongoing investigation into the eight hundred-thousand-dollar government loan to Savvy Entertainment.

No further information will be provided on those arrests at this time.

In light of recent comments regarding the second arrest yesterday, Stephen Corbishley, the Commissioner of Police Stated: “Any decision by the Bermuda Police Service to effect the arrest of an individual, is based on many different factors. However, such action is not an indication of guilt and does not always lead to charges being laid. The decision to do so rests with the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. 

There are some in the community who would have seen the headlines about the most recent arrest in connection with this investigation. 

Whilst it is the media’s role to report and speculate against such matters, we ask the public not to jump to conclusions based on limited knowledge of fact.”

Commissioner Corbishley made it clear: “The BPS will act without fear or favour and properly investigate any serious allegation of wrongdoing. To do otherwise, would undermine the principles of natural justice. 

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
