U.K. Serious Fraud Office investigating Harlequin Resorts?

Harlequin-Warning.co.uk says the Serious Fraud Office is investigating Harlequin

“I have written endlessly to Harlequin requesting responses to specific queries relating to the legal aspect and grounds for the continual refusal to return my three deposits. They have failed to respond. Hence, with lack of legal grounds, they are withholding my monies illegally.

Further, one has to question the legality of refusal to communicate with investors and what view a Court of Law, The Serious Fraud Office, the Government’s companies investigation branch and other governing bodies will take of this.

As stated previously, once I had handed over my money, I was fully in their control. Today, perpetual stress, distress, anxiety, guilt, shame and a deep fear for my and my daughter’s future are constant companions…

Valuable time, which should be spent on making our new life following five years of hellish divorce litigation, is instead spent on attempting to have returned money which is legally mine.

Even the originally agreed return of approximately 68% of my Buccament Bay deposit (only about 29% of my full deposit) has now gone silent. In accordance with my contract, this should be in my bank account by 29/4/2012 – Harlequin refuse to confirm or respond to this

Finally, I am now also reliably informed that the Serious Fraud Office are investigating Harlequin.”

Grain of Salt Time…

The editors at Barbados Free Press remind all that BFP and Harlequin-Warning.co.uk are anonymous websites so don’t rush to declare anything you read here or anywhere without some fact checking of your own. And that doesn’t just apply to anonymous blogs like ours… after all, US Public Radio just issued yet another apology for yet another fictitious news story – this time about Foxconn, one of Apple computers suppliers.

Considering all the smoke ’bout Harlequin though, we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the UK Serious Fraud Office has had a file open for some time.

    Maybe the records for 1930 to the present
    are still at the Registry in Bridgetown
    -and that’s why you can’t find them at Archives?

    Or have you already checked Registry in Bridgetown and done a search there?

    We await your rational, composed, edited response.

    And by now, Mr. Gibson has discovered (to his great chagrin?)
    HOW the Barbados Machine WORKS,
    and his viewpoint is gradually being levered towards..
    “a more understanding and appreciative accommodation” of how we live, here.

    Anonymous???e There is more than a 20 year gap between the Land Registry and the Archives. No one in there wanted to or can help to show where the Plantations deeds ARE recorded .Caswell Franklyn did a report ,and reported to the Attorney General Mia Amor Mottley 2002-03-06.
    Frankly called what he saw a Massive Fraud that was done to Violet Beckles , The true Estate of Beatrice Evangeline Henry to Violet Beckles wiped away by Fraud . Violet lawyer in 1986 was Sir Richard L .Cheltenham Ph.D, QC, This lawyer then put C.O Williams as the front man. .Barbados Police fraud Squad have 90 % of the deeds and signed statements . No BODY MOVE, NO BODY GET HURT.,,, This same fraud is what is gripping this country now , until its cleaned up…..

    Index to Plantation Owners 1630 to modern times

    The majority of entries in the Barbados Plantations database are from the “Index to Plantations Owners 1630 – 1846”. This index is the property of Mr. Ronald G. Hughes of Barbados who has kindly granted permission for it to be published on our website. The index of names was compiled from deeds, wills, maps, census, newspapers, surveyors� plans and correspondence.

    Further study of the plantations and owners, etc. can be undertaken at the Barbados Archives, referring to the Hughes / Queree Note Books (6 ring binders: A � Z, 432 pages). These records were compiled by Mr. Ronald Hughes and the late Mr. Cecil Queree over many years. Any data from these notebooks on this site is referenced as “H/Q, ##” meaning Hughes/Queree, page ##”

    Ask the Chief Archivist Mr Williams for more than 25 years where are the 6 ring binders, See if he will run also ,
