Neil Bush to Newsmax TV: Kuwait Wrong in Detaining Mother of Young US Son
By Jason Devaney
Neil Bush, the son of the late President George H.W. Bush, told Newsmax TV he is trying to persuade Kuwait to free a Russian national and former U.S. green card holder from what he called false charges partly because the woman’s 5-year-old son is a U.S. citizen and also because he is trying to protect Kuwait from making a mistake.
During an appearance on “America Talks Live,” Bush told host John Cardillo that “unscrupulous forces” in the small oil-rich country are keeping Marsha Lazareva behind bars.
“As she succeeded in the investment in a real estate project in the Philippines, there were unscrupulous forces within Kuwait that wanted to freeze the funds that were otherwise to be distributed to the investors in that organization,” Bush said.
