By BBN Staff: Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wilfred Elrington, said this week that he maintains his position on the lack of evidence against his brother, Errol Elrington, who is wanted for fraud in the United States.

In an interview with Channel 5, Elrington said that in his experience as an attorney, he has learned that people make accusations all the time, with no evidence to support it.

“If you have proof of any wrongdoing that’s a different matter. So we can’t stop the United States from making allegations against him.We can’t stop them from putting him on a list,” Elrington said of the allegations against his brother.

Elrington was referring to the Top 10 Most Wanted List that the Department of Health and Human Services placed his brother on. Dr . Errol Elrington is wanted for allegedly defrauding Medicare and Medicaid of almost half a million US dollars.
