Anonymous Letter Sent To Many People – Raises Questions About The Air India & Destiny Cricket Charters

Adrian Loveridge tells us that David Thompson, MP, Richard Sealy MP, Denis Kellman MP, Austin Husbands, and journalist David Ellis are co-recipients of an anonymous letter that recently arrived at Adrian’s office.

Here is Adrian’s story…

I today, received via mail an unsigned letter raising a number of concerns regarding primarily, the Barbados Tourism Authority and their spending in relation to the recent hosting of the CWC.

Among the questions were:

1) What was the expense to the taxpayers of Barbados for this charter out of India?
2) What was the role of the Director of Cruise Tourism that requested her to travel to India three times?
3) How many passengers eventually travelled to Barbados, and took cabins on the (Carnival) Destiny?
4) How many ICC tickets were purchased by the BTA to give away and at what cost?
5) How many certified travel agents and certified journalists from India did the BTA pay to travel to Barbados?
6) To sum it up, how many people in all did the BTA pay for?

The three page letter goes on to make a number of serious allegations and I sincerely hope the writer will send the full text to Barbados Free Press, even if it is sent anonymously to allow the Chairman of the Barbados Tourism Authority to respond.

According to the letter a copy was also sent to the following people: David Thompson, MP, Richard Sealy MP, Denis Kellman MP, Austin Husbands, David Ellis and myself.

    Where is sleepy Peter Odle. This party in power gladfly been hanging around BTA for decades. Parties change ministers change but Odle stays. How come? Saw him on tv saying a Jamaican journalist gave him wrong info. Odle stop talking nonsense and answer the important questions raised in the letter. You are chairman. Buck stops at you.

    That is what I’m thinking……he’s the only ogre to do it!

    Mr. Loveridge often emails us articles or comments and like anyone could publish anything here, or make a comment, with or without his real name.

    Therefore, the likelihood of Mr. Loveridge sending a letter to himself is about zero. There is no need for it.

    Plus, Mr. Loveridge is a man of good character and such an act would simply be not possible for any number of reasons.

    Thank You BFP for the nice comments.

    I wish I had the technology to scan and email the entire letter to you.
    The comments are deeply disturbing BUT I do not know if they are true or not.
    The mere fact that the letter been sent to a number of people in political office begs the question, what is the writer’s objective.
    As previously mentioned, I faxed the letter to Sue Springer at the BHTA and Peter Odle, the current BTA chairman and I hope that they will deal with the points raised.

    IF the writer of the letter is reading this, please email a copy to BFP, so everyone can draw their own conclusions.

    I really have a lot more respect for myself than sending myself letters!

    Regards.

    Thanks Straight Talk.

    But document was sent as an unsolicited letter through the post and our scanner has died from salt blast.

    A friend is scanning it at his office on Monday and will email to BFP.
