Former Barbados High Commissioner In London Threatened Court Witness With Loss Of University Of West Indies Job – And That Is Exactly What Happened!
A professor at the University of the West Indies was told he would be fired by the University if he continued to be a witness in a court case (unrelated to his job) where the list of defendants reads like a “whos who” of Barbados political elites.
According to court documents found at Keltruth Blog, Barbados Government diplomat Peter Simmons delivered the threat that Professor John Knox would be fired if he continued to be a witness in a court case involving Kingsland Estates – a dispute involving a billion US dollars of prime Barbados lands.
John Knox is now an “ex-professor” with no job at the University of the West Indies.
And for those who might have doubts… a tape recording exists of Peter Simmons delivering this and other threats.
No Outcry From The Lapdog News Media – Or UWI’s Academic Community
The brother of the Chief Justice of Barbados was tape-recorded delivering threats against witnesses in a trial where he and Chief Justice SIR David Simmons are defendants…
… and not one word has been spoken about the threats in the oldstream Barbados news media.
A University of the West Indies professor is fired because he is a witness in a court case and the academic community at UWI says nothing.
What an example for the young people of Barbados. All those high words and lofty ideals mouthed by so-called Barbados journalists and proud academics at the University of the West Indies are now proven to be so much garbage.
