Three years later, we’re still looking for the Integrity Legislation and conflict of interest rules that David Thompson promised to implement within the first 100 days…
““Young man, I hear you and your friends are stealing goods. But you don’t even send a dress to my house. No respect! You know I’ve got three daughters. This is my neighborhood. You and your friends should show me some respect. You should let me wet my beak a little.” …Don Fanucci Thompson in “The Godfather Part II”
Barbados Free-For-All: No Conflict Of Interest Rules, No Transparency In Spending Your Tax Dollars
Amelot Oil Barbados, Ltd. has been running a small biofuel refinery project in Barbados. Last week company executives from New York met with Barbados government officials about expanding the project. Amelot is seeking significant investment from Barbados through tax incentives, relaxed duties, direct financial investment and having Barbados government employees and subcontractors working on the project at all phases until startup.
And Amelot was told it is all coming to them courtesy of the David Thompson government.
How many government members or their families own shares in Amelot or it’s parent company and affiliates? How many will be awarded consulting or supply contracts on a project that is receiving tax dollars???
“None of your business. If it was your business, we would have rules about such things… and we don’t” says Godfather Thompson.
