Nothing Angered The Previous BLP Government More Than An Honest Judge! Could The Same Be Said Of The Preceding DLP Government?
When foreign investor Nitin Amersey won a judgment in the Barbados Courts entitling him to the physical assets of the Caribbean Sea Island Cotton Company Ltd., the government of the day didn’t like that…
So what happened? Did the government appeal in court? Did they file a motion?
Why bother with that judicial system nonsense when the Barbados Defense Force will do the government’s will without considering those bothersome details about laws and court orders?
Keltruth Blog has the story about the day that the 300 armed soldiers of the Barbados Defense Force violated the constitution and the courts at the behest of a despotic government. The action sent shivers through the foreign investment community and to this day probably has a greater impact in restraining foreign business ventures on our island than we realise.
What we want to know is who ordered the BDF action, and will they ever be held to account for their crime?

Editor’s Note: We had originally indicated that the army action was taken under a BLP government. This is incorrect, but we also understand that the BLP had some part in the ongoing dispute with Mr. Amersey. We are awaiting confirmation as to which parts of the Nitin Amersey story were played out under the respective DLP and BLP governments.
