Four hospital officials arrested in Virgin Islands
AP/Miami Herald, October 9, 2008
Four people have been arrested and charged with embezzling money from a public hospital in the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.
A U.S. government audit earlier this year accused three of the defendants of colluding with the board of the Schneider Regional Medical Center in St. Thomas to hide bloated compensation packages and lying to legislators about the hospital's cash flow.
The defendants are former hospital chief executives Rodney Miller and Amos Carty Jr.; former CFO Peter Najawicz and former hospital board chief June Adams.
