Special Treatment For Corporate Records – For A Company Owned By Senior Civil Servants!
A week ago we told you about Harrison Resort (Barbados) Limited, a company owned by Senior Barbados Government Officials that is or was developing a 200 million dollar hotel project at Harrison Point. In our article Thanks To Prime Minister David Thompson, Barbados Government Officials Can Still Use Their Office For Personal Profit, we pointed out that by virtue of their insider knowledge, connections and their ability to directly and indirectly influence lawmakers, civil servants are well-positioned to profit from their office and government employment.
It looks like that insider knowledge is also able to make certain records disappear from public examination!
If you do an online search the CAIPO – Barbados Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property Office website for “Harrison” you get a list of 11 or so corporations like this…
Then, if you click on one of the corporate records, say for the “Old Harrisonian Society”, a window opens up and you get more information, including the name, company number, date registered or incorporated and the category of the company. As you can see, for the “Old Harrisonian Society”, the company number is “39” and it was registered “1983-09-08” as a “Charity”…
That result is repeatable for any corporation in the database….
Harrison Point Resort Limited has a registration number of 28491 and was incorporated “2007-03-28”. Harrison’s Development Corporation has a registration number of 22190 and was incorporated “2003–03-13”.
Try it yourself for any company in the database and you’ll get the information.
EXCEPT FOR THE COMPANY OWNED BY SENIOR BARBADOS CIVIL SERVANTS…
When you click on the records for Harrison’s Resort (Barbados) Limited – the company owned by Barbados senior civil servants… you get nada. Nothing. No information.
That makes it difficult if not impossible to perform a search to see who the directors of this company are and when exactly it was incorporated.
Oh well – just one more day under a corrupt Barbados DLP Government that is unwilling to hold any government official accountable for anything. After all, if Prime Minister Thompson starts really doing something about corruption, he and his fellow DLP members won’t be able to engage in corrupt activities themselves!
