The Barbados Labour Party published an article in the Barbados Advocate (link here) and on the official government BLP blog on Friday – criticizing Thompson and the DLP for talking about corruption. The article claims that “audited financial statements of GEMS (hotels) hae been (laid) in the House for some time now and Thompson would have seen them yet he has not called for an investigation. Why?”
A source has informed both Barbados Underground and Barbados Free Press that these “audited financial statements of GEMS” that no one had previously heard of only go up to 2001!
GEMS Hotels has been operating in contravention of the law and has failed to present audited financial statements for the past almost seven years!
It is way too easy to catch these crooked BLP government types lying and being corrupt. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
