J Watson and co
It was reported in February 2009 that Watson had hired a jet to the islands' premier, Michael Misick. Misick and his deputy, Floyd Hall, are alleged to have helped parcel out prime strips of land on the Islands to developers keen to turn the overseas territory, some 600 miles off Florida, into a luxury tourist destination. Both men deny any wrongdoing.
