The state's top judge is being flown to the Caribbean island national to investigate allegations of international fraud and money laundering. The inquiry has no connection to Australia, and the government of Antingua and Barbuda will pay the Chief Justice's airfares, as well as his accommodation and expenses.

"It is alleged that money launders used offshore banks, involving financiers from Europe who acted with high ranking politicians and public servants," said Firth.


The Chief Justice will be replaced by the president of the NSW Court of Appeal, Justice James Allsop, when overseas.
