    Are you even aware that all politics and politicians are riddled in corruption.

  3. PLANTATION DEEDS FROM 1926-2013 AND SEE MASSIVE FRAUD ,LAND TAX BILLS AND NO DEEDS

    Not all but most ,,

    It looks like every time you see a big project 2 out of every 3 dollars is going into offshore accounts!!

    So if $50 million spent on Greenland to dig a hole, then the job could have been done with $17 million and the other $33 million went into greasypalms and on to Offshore Accounts!!

  5. just want to know

    John can you prove this in court?

  6. John

    I am relying on the presentation given by Afra Raymond in which as long ago as the 1980’s the ratio was established by the then PM I think ….. I’ll check again

  7. John

    The PM himself said it in 1982!!!!

    3:50 – 4:50

    Today, of the $1.6 billion paid on the Piarco project, $1 billion can be traced to overseas bank accounts!!

    1/1.6 = 2/3.2 …. marginally better but maybe they have not tracked down all!!

  8. John

    Sounds like he said it in Parliament too ………… I reckon the Court would accept Hansard as a source document!!

Tell the world what you think about this!
