Fraud Charges Launched In Ghana
Victims of the fraud that saw Ghana International Airways dump a plane load of Africans in Barbados will testify against one of the African-based organisers. From news accounts, it appears that Frank Emmanuel Duncan was not one of the organisers of the charter flight, but sub-contracted for some 43 seats which he sold to victims by promising them 20 days hotel accommodations in Trinidad and jobs at US$10 per hour.
In our opinion, the Barbados politicians and civil servants who allowed this to happen should be held to account as much as the crooks who organised the flight.
Any person with even a modicum of intelligence knew or should have known what that flight was all about.
But remember… there is no accountability for anything in Barbados. It starts with the Ministers of Government and works its way down from the top.
Don’t expect any real investigation or charges for the Barbados end of the fraud.
