    When the time is right all will be revealed. Bajans will be very vex when they find out the truth about who has been stealing their hard earned tax dollars and whatever else. In this technological age, everything can be traced, tracked, hacked, even streamed live to the net. So believe me when I say that all will be revealed. Time and a season for everything. We bajans are a decent, law abiding society (most of us anyway)but I’d hate to be the object of their aggression. A hungry man is an angry man.

    Man, skin-out ervy-ting, nuh?

    CAN said funds be repatriated to the Barbados Treasury.
    THAT is the $64,000,000 question??

    These thiefin WessIndian politicians get caught
    but the people’s money never gets repatriated to the respective Treasuries!
    – and that pisses me off.

    I The Taxpayer feel cheated.

    Bajankidd said that when the time is right, all will be revealed
    but methinks the time will never be right enough for such declaration.
    We’ve had these sort of looming revelations before
    but not much ever comes of them..
    Too much to lose on both sides of the political fence!

    More foolish lies from scumbag Barbados Free Press.

    Keep hating and keep hoping.

  8. What will they think of next

    How can I get my hands on a copy of that list?

    Hello Loveridge Hater,

    Well, at least you’re not making your vile comments from the Parliamentary lounge anymore. At least not this time. It’s a shame that the Barbados Police wouldn’t follow up on the death threats that were made against Adrian Loveridge from a computer at the Parliament of Barbados. But, hey… what can you expect ’bout this place… rule of law? Cha!

  10. Johnny Postle

    I wonder how that lot sleeping with this revelation. Hahahaha, boy it will be a red letter day if these crooks in politicians’ cloaks were to get caught. I wonder how Barney would handle that. He is such a sweet boy wuhlawds…

    In my view Barbados launders money legally and in plain sight with tax treaties.
    One example: The tax treaty between Barbados and Canada legally washes billions and billions of dollars through Barbados each year. A small group of wealthy Canadians and corporations like it that way.
    It’s a huge scandal that has never been touched upon publicly.
    They call it ‘Foreign Direct Investment’, or FDI, and it amounts to between US $45 and $75 billion every single year.
    Barbados has an annual Gross Domestic Product of approximately $3.5 billion. Less than a tenth of what Canadians send to the island.
    Conservative estimates show that Canadian taxpayers pay roughly $1.5 to $2.5 Billion every year to support the tax treaty between Canada and Barbados. But it’s likely that it is much, much more. The Canadian government calls this “tax leakage.”
    It’s not fraudulent. But it is unfair to working Canadians and Barbadians. Try to find the results of all this Canadian “investment” on the streets in Barbados. You won’t find it because much of it passes right through the island and on to pure tax havens like the Caymans or Bahamas. Some of it goes right back to Canada tax free.
    The scale of this FDI is huge and contrasts with the fact that there are few signs of robust Canadian companies in Barbados making a real difference in the quality of life on the island. Can you imagine how the economic landscape would change in Barbados if that FDI translated into actual hard investment?
    Barbados is the third most-significant recipient of Canadian foreign direct investment on the planet, after the United States and the United Kingdom. But Barbadians hardly see a penny of this money trickle down to create real on-the-ground businesses, or local jobs.
    The scheme runs deep: Canadian banks have had domestic ‘private banking’ operations steering Canadian residents to their foreign tax haven subsidiaries and affiliates which they were promoting and thus actively assisting Canadian residents to avoid Canadian tax.
    In the meantime the Barbados government is trolling for more “foreign direct investment” any way they can. On Monday, September 27, 2010 government announced the signing of a double tax agreement with Spain.
    The spin is that it will bolster economic relations and consequently increase trade flows and bilateral investment. But more often than not the spirit and intent of tax treaties are violated, and most of it does not result in legitimate on-the-ground investments in Barbados.
    The truth is that apathy, cronyism and greed are the actual ruling elements behind the Canada-Barbados Tax treaty, and it is likely that other tax treaties will not be any different.
    The question is – how long will the average working person put up with it?

  12. rhubarb

    I had hoped that by now that the leaders of the 2 labour parties, in preparation for upcoming elections, would have made some statements as to their position on the subject of the introduction of integrity and freedom of information legislation. This is something that most Bajans feel strongly about. It could certainly be the prime influence on my choice of the candidate for my vote!
    Please, Bajans, don’t let this topic die a quiet death!

  13. Primitive

    Jon didn’t say how long Canadians would put up with an unbalanced tax treaty with Barbados. Their treaty with us costs them plenty, and their national debt will be pushing a trillion dollars if things keep going the way they are. What is the estimated annual revenue to Barbados from this treaty?

    Pictet & Cie.- claim they are the “Rolls Royce”of Swiss banks.

    Swiss Banks or more correctly Swizz banks.

    Swizz. —- “ a great disappointment.” or a “ fraud.”

    Fraud. —“ an intentional deception or dishonesty.”— “a crime.”

    Crime. —“ an act committed or omitted in violation of a law.”

    Serious Crimes .

    Contempt of Court.

    Pictet & Cie Bank –Partners –(1996—2011)—guilty.
    Peters &Peters – Partners.— (1999—2011)— guilty.

    The bank and it’s officials/lawyers deliberately withheld crucial documents requested under a High Court order. The bank and it’s officials/lawyers deliberately withheld evidence from the Police, and one of it’s account managers Susan Broadhead gave a false witness statement to the Police.
    Another one of it’s managers Nicholas Campiche ( Now Head of Pictet – Alternative Investments.) concocted a letter pretending to be a client and closed his account. The senior partner (Ivan Pictet.) sought to have numerous documents destroyed,along with those copies held in their London office’s of Pictet Asset Management. Initially stating that they were forgeries then their lawyers Peters & Peters – Monty Raphael –and the barrister Charles Flint.Q.C. later had to admit in Court that the documents were genuine.

    British Parliament. Hansard .29th March 2007.
    Barry Sheerman .M.P.—quote.

    ———“ Constituents of mine have lost £2 million through fraud. The fraudster used Pictet & Cie – – a French Bank – – and Pictet Asset Management to back the fraud being perpetrated.””

    (1) It is a criminal offence for a bank to knowingly act for an undischarged criminal bankrupt in so far as it seeks to assist that criminal bankrupt in the fraudulent movement of monies. ( Money Laundering.)

    (2) It is a criminal offence for a bank to lie to the police and the bankrupts trustee in bankruptcy in so far as any knowledge of, or dealings with the bank was refuted .

    (3) A bank can be guilty of Contempt of Court if it fails to comply fully with the Courts order for discovery .

    (4) The banks contempt is further compounded if it fails to address its error after it is specifically drawn to the to its solicitors attention. ( Monty Raphael).

    (5) It is a criminal offence under the Financial Services Act to seek to destroy evidence that might be relevant to an investigation .

    (6) It is a criminal offence not to relinquish control of funds to the Trustee immediately the fact of the bankruptcy is drawn to the banks attention.

    (7) It is a criminal offence to lie or otherwise obfuscate the lawful and proper enquiries of the F.S.A.

    In the F.S.A. cover up , they concluded that there had been “ Rogue” elements in Pictet & Cie’s , London operations . They had been moved from their London Office so who was there left to prosecute. “ Unbelievable.”

    On Dec 9th,2008. the complaint was sent to 150 Members of the House Of Lords and 230 Members of Parliament.

    *** We thank –David Cameron. M.P. ( Canary Wharf Speech.) Dec. 15th. 2008.
    Now— PRIME MINISTER.

    (1) Bankers who behave irresponsibly should face professional consequences.
    (2) If anyone is found to have behaved criminally they must be prosecuted.
    (3) The F.S.A and the Serious Fraud Office should be following up every lead,
    investigating every suspect transaction .
    (4) We need to make it 100% clear –those who break the law should face
    prosecution.
    (5) That we make sure we root out any wrongdoing that may have happened, whoever
    is involved, however high or well connected they may be.

    We started our campaign in June 2008 — via the “net” to highlight our fight to get “justice”. In our second year campaign we hoped to reveal further damning evidence .

    HSBC Laundering Billions?
    Friday, February 03, 2012 – by Staff Report

    A former employee of one of the world’s largest international banks has provided WND with more than 1,000 pages of documents, including customer account ledgers for dozens of companies through which the financial institution was laundering money each month, according to the whistleblower. “I found many accounts through which hundreds of thousands of dollars were being flowed as a conduit on a monthly basis,” John Cruz, an account relationship manager who worked in the HSBC southern New York region, told WND. − WorldNetDaily

    Dominant Social Theme: What a shock! This is perhaps the biggest bank in the world! Where were the regulators? What’s going on? How could this happen? It’s really impossible to believe …

    snip

    Given that HSBC is the most valuable banking brand in the world, systemic corruption at the top of HSBC is big news. What’s funny in a sad way is that this probably has been going on for decades. It is only now, however − thanks to the Internet − that these sorts of things can be publicized. It seems like there is fairly significant evidence to back up these charges.

    As WND reported, Cruz has a raft of customer account records he claims are evidence of an international money-laundering scheme involving hundreds of billions of dollars by London-based HSBC, which reportedly is under investigation by a US Senate committee.

    We don’t put too much faith in the US Senate when it comes to these sorts of money-laundering schemes. First of all, we don’t think money laundering, for the most part. is a crime. We think drugs and gambling – two large generators of illicit funds – should be legalized.

    But the reason they won’t be, so far as we can tell, is because the Anglosphere elite that seeks to run the world has arranged these “crimes” so as to create large pools of black capital. It is this untrackable black capital that increasingly runs the West’s mercenary military and the West’s top-level globalist, Intel-oriented operations.

    snip

    The Internet is a process, not an episode. As times goes on, we figure more and more anomalous revelations about the world’s largest criminal syndicate will be revealed. These are not “incidents” of corruption. In fact, one oughtn’t to call it “corruption,” in our view.

    There is an emergent world government that has been put in place and it is one that is supported by corporations and individuals that are above national law. The system will only collapse – and it will in our view – when people realize that what they believe is anomalous is in fact systemic.

    The Criminal Super Class.
    Bankers.
    Lawyers.
    Police. April.2012.

    Over approximately five years of hitting the internet with a case that involves criminality by a major Swiss Bank , Britain’s most prominent fraud lawyer and a regional police force headed by one of Britains top policeman. ( Surely justice should prevail.)

    In fact the complete opposite even though the offences committed are very serious.

    Conspiring to Pervert the Course of Justice.
    Perverting the Course of Justice.
    Contempt of Court.—————— plus a dozen or so smaller offences.

    In the five years some 6-7million e-mails have been forwarded to all Members of Parliaments in Britain and Switzerland, every barrister and chambers in Europe .
    Every law inforcement body in both countries , and America. Even raised in Parliament twice.

    The banking fraternity fully aware of this case still decide to give the Private Banker of the Year Award to Ivan Pictet — Pictet & Cie Bank. ( Him being the person most responsible for the crimes committed by him and his bank partners. )

    The legal fraternity decided that Monty Raphael of Peters & Peters . London became an honourable Queens Counsellor and to rub the salt in six months later made a Master of the Bench. He also was guilty of all the above offences but so what. At this rate he might become King by the end of the year.

    The police ( West Yorkshire Police.) headed by Sir Norman Bettison has not improved as a force on fighting crime. They are now worse than the days of the Yorkshire Ripper , when they had him in custody nine times and let him go. If it hadn’t been for the South Yorkshire Police force catching the Ripper he would have still been at large to day .

    Then they wonder why the man in the street becomes angry and decides to riot.
    Even after five years of exposing their crimes on the internet , they dare not take legal action to stop us — no injunctions — no writs – they can’t risk going to jail.
    All we can do is to continue pressing for justice and up the pressure on the internet. For the next five years and beyond.

    HSBC is in more trouble for money laundering.

    HSBC has apologised for “shameful” systems breakdowns that failed to stop the bank from laundering money for terrorists and drug barons as it set aside $700m (£445m) for potential fines in the US and another $1.3bn for mis-selling financial products in the UK.

    The bank insisted that those responsible for the rule breaches in the US and Mexico had left the business and that bonuses had been clawed back from staff who allowed billions of illegal dollars to be funnelled through the financial system.

    Sods —- Law.

    Dec. 2013.

    For almost two decades we have strived to get justice for the injustice we have suffered at the hands of a world renowned bank .( Pictet & Cie.)

    Two Yorkshire men both running their own family businesses trying to resolve the problem by taking the correct legal procedures to recover their monies.

    The matter was raised in parliament –twice – the FSA investigated the matter concluding that the bank had rogues operating in their London Bank — but the rogues had left — so there.

    We then approached the Financial Ombudsman Service – our case was dealt with by seven different people —- then numerous E-Mails were ignored — nobody would speak to us. – so there.

    We then asked the SFO ( Serious Fraud Office) to investigate our case
    — the criteria of our case ticked all their boxes — we were instructed not to send down any documents / evidence — in fact they wrote to us advising us to go to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau. ( CAB) .

    RICHARD ALDERMAN ( The Boss) —- who responded to our letter was the man who would not investigate the “ Madoff “ scandal or the “Libor” fiasco. The MP’S committee —– said he was sloppy — and the SFO was run like “ Fred Karno’s Circus. —– so there.

    Our M.P. approached our local Chief Constable to investigate – our West
    Yorkshire Police Force — made “ Dad’s Army” look like the S.A.S.
    Inept , corrupt – from top to bottom. We were criminally dealt with by the Forces Solicitor — the Head of the Economic Crime Unit — and the Chief Constable — one SIR NORMAN BETTISON. —- so there.

    We then were advised to pass our complaint against West Yorkshire Police to the I.P.C.C.— which we did — they instructed the West Yorkshire Police to look into our complaint. —-so there.

    Sir Norman Bettison —and the Forces Solicitor –and the Head of the Economic Crime Unit – all removed from their posts and facing criminal allegatioins. — So there

    We even sought justice through the Courts , culminating in a visit to the Court of Appeal. London. On leaving the Court of Appeal that day our barrister ( a rising star ) informed us that if that was justice then they can keep it. He quit the law and moved to Canada.—-so there.

    We learned a few years later that one of the judge’s in our case at the Courts of Appeal was related to a senior executive of the Bank.—so there.

    The Bank —- PICTET & CIE.. London. — Geneva.
    Voted private bank of the year —2013.
    IVAN PICTET —- the senior partner — lied on numerous occasions and had documents destroyed — said genuine documents were forgeries.
    2012—Voted Banker of the Year.
    Oct 2013 — Given the LEGION of HONOUR — so there

    But saying that honours were given to Hitler—Eichmann— Mussolini —
    Franco – he’s in fitting company. —- so there.

    MONTY RAPHAEL –Peters & Peters. London were the banks lawyers.
    He along with Ivan Pictet withheld crucial documents requested by the High Court —- the FSA and the police Fraud Squad.

    Monty Raphael became an Honorary Queens Counsellor. ( Q.C.) in March.2012 —- made Master of the Bench in Nov.2012 .
    An expert in Fraud – the Doyen of Fraud Lawyers – so there.

    This says a lot about Banks —- the consensus of opinion is that they are highly paid “crooks” — no wonder they voted Ivan Pictet banker of the year .
