FBI Investigation Has Barbados Connections
VECO, the same company that is building Barbados’ way-over-budget new prison, has a long history of bribing politicians and other corrupt practices. United States politicians and VECO executives are dropping like flies as an FBI investigation shows no signs of stopping.
The latest in the continuing saga happened on Monday, July 30, 2007 at about 2:30pm Alaska time when the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service teamed up and raided the home of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.
Give me the FBI over the tax people any day!
Which reminds me… IF a Barbados politician failed to declare received monies or benefits either in Barbados or in a foreign bank account, who would be in charge of judging their guilt or innocence in any Barbados tax-evasion charge? (Like one would be laid anyway in Barbados… Not in a million years)
But IF a Barbados politician were charged with tax evasion, who would be in charge of the system that would decide guilty or innocence and impose any penalty?
Oh ya. Right. I forgot…
Prime Minister Owen Arthur’s good old drinking buddy, now Chief Justice SIR David Simmons!
What a joke.
