Cayman Islands Premier McKeeva Bush said Thursday in a prepared statement that he will not resign as premier.

According to the statement, Mr. Bush said he had done nothing wrong.

“I shall not be resigning as premier,” Mr. Bush said. “I also wish to assure one and all that the government continues to operate as normal.

“On the advice of my attorney and given the circumstances, I am unable to comment any further at this time. However, I will make further statements in due course.”

Mr. Bush thanked his supporters, friends and family “especially those in the district of West Bay” for their prayers, visits and words of encouragement.

The premier said he would travel to Jamaica, as previously scheduled, to accept conferral of an honourary doctorate from the University College of the Caribbean.

“I feel obligated to honour this commitment and have decided to attend,” Mr. Bush said. “I will be returning to the Island this Friday.”
