Governor of the Central Bank of the OECS: Too frightened to speak about Barbados?

Disappointing talk by Sir Dwight Venner

Sir Dwight Venner, Governor of the Central Bank of the OECS/Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, declined to answer a simple question from independent-journalist-don’t-give-a-damn-for-bullshit publisher of The Bajan Reporter, Ian Bourne.

Sir Dwight won’t answer what he thinks about Bajan Finance Minister Chris Sinckler’s budget.

I don’t know where Sir Dwight comes from but in Grape Hall, Barbados – silence is one of the strongest statements a man can make when asked a question.

Arch Cot Inquest: Where are the missing witnesses?

If your name is on the following list, please contact the Coroner’s office.

Two days ago Barbados Free Press received an email from a person who said they were witness to some of the events at Arch Cot. They provided us with a lengthy and detailed account of what they saw and their contact information so we could confirm that they sent the email to us.

Their name is on the list of missing witnesses below.

We will not be publishing their statement at this time. We forwarded their email to the Coroner along with their contact information.

Friends, it is important that what was seen is testified to at the Inquest. We urge witnesses to contact the Coroner’s office with their story. We at BFP promise you this: If the Coroner’s Inquest does not hear your testimony, we will print it here. That said, we urge witnesses to contact the Coroner’s office first.

If your name is on the following list, please contact the Coroner’s office at 429-4292 as soon as possible. Continue reading
