Same Old Same Old: Government Cover-ups & “Misplaced” Files
A solid source informs Barbados Free Press that the company files for Structural Steel Solutions LLC (3S) flyover project have disappeared from the Barbados Government Corporate Affairs & Intellectual Property Office.
Yesterday morning, May 15, 2007, a senior official from another government office attempted to locate the file and was told that the file has been “astray” for “some time”. The official requesting the file had been following up on an internal complaint that NO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT has been done for the flyovers. Further, the official has been unable to find any details of the plans for the highway.

BU at the right time will name those Ministers in government who received lots in the Bakers Wood Development in St. Peter. Then there is Apple Grove Plantation which was sub-divided and sold to top Ministers at “rab land” price as well, located above Mount Stinkeroo with a panoramic view of the West Coast and the Sandy Lane Estate. BU is willing to bet that the Ministers know something that John Public does not. It is interesting that Apple Grove was sold by Bruce Bayley who is a Director in CGI along with David Shorey and Peter Harris.… from the Barbados Underground article Barbadians Want An Equitable Land Policy
Barbados Government Ministers Used Their Position For Personal Gain?
Nah… No way.
