Another Stunning Secret Tape Recording In The Barbados Kingsland Estates Fraud Case! Richard Cox, Sir Henry Forde, Clyde Turney… OH MY!!!!!!

It Is Difficult To Claim “That Didn’t Happen, Your Honour” When A Tape-Recording Is Played!

Keltruth Blog has revealed the existence of yet another secret tape recording made in the Kingsland Estate land fraud case.

Ten years ago Sir Henry Forde recommended that a secret tape recording be made of an “off the record” meeting between his clients – two of the Knox family – and Clyde Turney’s representatives for an “undisclosed client” who desperately wanted to get their hands on prime Barbados land owned by Kingsland Estates.

“And who should show up at the meeting but Prime Minister Owen Arthur’s bag man: Richard Cox!!!!”

This is the same Richard Cox who, with David Shorey and Prime Minister Owen Arthur, was involved in the Holders land scandal that was the winner of our 2006 Barbados Piggies At The Trough Award. (See BFP’s WINNER ANNOUNCED: Barbados Piggies At The Trough Award 2006)

Environmentally Sensitive Land Impossible To Rezone For Development – Until The Right People Stand To Make Some Money…

Owen Arthur, Richard Cox, David Shorey and other big-ups of the past BLP administration were professionals at squeezing the life out of farmers and other land-holders. The BLP government would deny permissions to develop large tracts of land for years until the owners gave up and accepted the fact that they would never be able to profit from their land. Then Cox and Shorey would be sent in to make a low-ball offer for “an undisclosed client”.

The land would then be flipped – sometimes within hours – to various companies and then MAGICALLY… the new owner was able to immediately obtain the land development approvals that had been withheld by government for a decade! Overnight, land that was barely able to support a crop became worth millions.

In this way Cox, Shorey, Arthur and a host of other government officials and big-ups were able to use other citizens’ lands as their own private bank accounts.


Who Else Has Been Secretly Recorded Over The Last 10 Years?

This is (I think) the third or fourth secret tape recording that has surfaced or been mentioned on Keltruth Blog. The last one was a tape-recording of Peter Simmons – the brother of Chief Justice SIR David Simmons – threatening that University of the West Indies professor John Knox would be fired from his teaching job if he continued to testify in the land fraud case involving the Chief Justice… and fired he was! (see BFP’s Justice In Barbados – Shut Up Or Else! Court Witness Fired From University Of West Indies Professorship. Brother Of Chief Justice Simmons Delivered The Threat)

In the Kingsland Estates land fraud case featured at Keltruth Blog, the prize is over a billion US$ dollars of prime Barbados land. Big stakes – with ordinary citizens trying to avoid being raped by a cabal of conspirators who regularly ate farmers for breakfast.

It looks to us like the little people knew that they didn’t stand a chance in a rigged Barbados judicial system. Heck – when you’re up against a group that includes the Prime Minister and his Attorney General, and then the AG becomes the Chief Justice… well, ordinary folks don’t stand much of a chance.

Except if you have secret tape-recordings to show the truth.

Friends, this latest secret tape-recording revealed on Keltruth Blog was made over ten years ago according to what we read. The one that shows Peter Simmons making threats was made (I think) last year. How many other secret tape-recordings were made by the little people over the last ten or so years? Who attended what meetings? Whose voices will the court hear and what did they say?

The court documents being published each week on Keltruth Blog may turn out to be the Barbados news story of the decade if the Bajan media ever decides to dig a little deeper.

    And when will this story be featured on CBC reports? 😉

  2. JC

    I was thinking like you passin thru!

  3. reality check

    When a knighted QC has to recommend to a client to secretly tape a meeting to be proven right that the characters involved including another lawyer are nothing more than liars and thieves, it is a very sad sad day for the Rule of Law in Barbados.

    Compounding this behaviour is a Judge who refuses to act decisively in the face of such fraud and this can only lead to one inescapable conclusion.

    Wait, did you guys delete my post? If so, why?


    BFP says

    Hi Rohan,

    We did not delete it. We moved it to “Random” because it was off topic. We’re going to discuss it at our regular Friday lunch meeting. Thanks for the information about Michelle Malkin and we’re going to have another look at her.

    The Rule of Law, RC? A judge who fails to act decisively in the face of such fraud? What are you talking about?

    Have you read the latest story (posted this afternoon) on Keltruth?

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for Sir Henry Forde. He represented me a number of years ago in a matter that involved “a person of stature” in Barbados and I was both moved and impressed by his integrity and acute intelligence.

  8. Keltruth Corp.

    Sorry for calling you Anonymous, 198.1. My slip!

  9. Keltruth Corp.

    Pied Piper,

    I am extremely grateful for Sir Henry’s wisdom in instructing that the meeting be taped.

    I also agree that Sir Henry is super intelligent. I am very grateful for Sir Henry’s help with my mother’s case over the years. Please note that his role in my latest post is a positive one limited to the act of setting up the meeting.

    Now his then associate, another brilliant lawyer, Alair Shepherd, plays a role in my latest post – Perjury or Business as Usual.

    I am surprised to hear that an eminent attorney at law would advise his client to secretly tape a meeting. Foolish me I thought that it was unlawful to tape a person without their consent. And foolish me again. I had no idea that an eminent attorney would advise his client to break the law.

    Or perhaps Keltruth in not truthful?

  11. David

    This is a request for a repeat of yesterday’s catchy header all refusing or excusing themselves. If that’s not possible, can it be emailed?

  12. Rohan

    Okay cool, thanks for the response, I really do appreciate it. I wasn’t aware of the random section either so thanks for the heads up. I know I’m a bit tough on you guys sometimes, but you’re a real asset to the country. Hopefully something can be done with these guys who are ruining the country and making a mockery of the rule of law.


    BFP says,

    You think you are tough on us? You should have seen Auntie Moses a few years back when we stayed too long at a party and “someone” became sick in her presence. Now THAT was tough on us! 😉

  13. Rohan

    Haha…I stand corrected 🙂

    I have just posted on the subject article on the Keltruth Blog the Reasons of the Ontario Court in a security motion filed in that action. It involves further tape recordingsm this time of Peter Simmons, in this action and there are many quotes by the learned judge from them.

    By the way, I do this at the request of my mother, BWWR and, upon reading the assessment of my mother, that has her as a man, by Keltruth and also the Reasons of Shaughnessy J., I think most will agree that the person described by Keltruth may well be attorney K. William McKenzie.

    Naturally, as I post comments for my mother from a cold climate – she sends them to me as attachments to an e-mail – her comments do appear to originate from a cold climate. This is for reasons of security, as it is far less likely that with millions of users, the security of identity can be breached. In Barbados, we all recall the instances in which identities have bee breached because the community is so small.

    Happy reading over at Keltruth.
