Man Arrested this Afternoon, 18 July, on Cayman Brac

Today, a man, age 63 of Cayman Brac, was arrested under Schedule 1 of the Criminal Procedure Code (2017 Revision) in relation to the suspected breach of Section 157(1)(a) of the Penal Code (2017 Revision), also referred to as obscene publication. The arrest was in relation to sculpture and artwork on his property that is in plain view of the public.

He was taken into Police custody, and has now been released on Police bail.

EDITOR: The man charged is artist Ronald “Foots” Kynes. His works of art are constantly being vandalised on a small island and no arrests have ever been made by the police. The ramifications of this decision to charge Kynes will be felt for a very long time. I will be writing an Editorial on this tomorrow.
