Opposition Leader David Thompson Also Being Sued With The Prime Minister (? !)
Folks, this keeps getting more and more interesting.
Back in May, we told you about the lawsuit launched in a Canadian court against Prime Minister Arthur, Chief Justice Simmons and other prominent Barbados citizens. The lawsuit alleges a conspiracy and corruption in relation to a large piece of land in Barbados. (See Barbados Lawsuit Names Prime Minister Owen Arthur, Chief Justice Simmons And Many Prominent Citizens And Businesses)
Now we see that the corrupt jail builder company VECO (from Alaska) has been added as a defendant in the lawsuit…. along with a “David Thompson” who is presumably THE David Thompson.
David at Barbados Underground broke the story of VECO and Thompson now being sued and BU has also posted a link to a copy of the lawsuit at another website called “Keltruth”.
I can’t find any mention of this in the “real” newsmedia, so it looks like Barbados Underground has scooped CNN on this one! I mean, VECO is being sold and it seems to me that VECO being sued for half a billion dollars might be newsworthy in a big way in the USA or Alaska media.
From reading the legal papers at Keltruth and Barbados Underground’s comments it is not immediately apparent to me how VECO and David Thompson are involved, but a Canadian court added them as defendants so the judge must have thought that there is at least some smoke (whether or not there is fire).
This case could become extremely interesting and I can’t figure out why the major media hasn’t picked up on this latest VECO connection as yet.
