“Alot of tricks. That Buccament Bay project in SVG is a disaster waiting to happen, it is constructed in a low lying flood plain between two mountains.
I expect to read any day that torential rains have washed the entire project, people and all, into the bloody sea.
Cellate and ICE Group could not build a pig pen for me.”
Barbados Free Press reader Gorillaphant comments July 25, 2010 on BFP’s Buccament Bay Resort: Harlequin alleges fraud, unsafe materials use…
Although BFP hasn’t heard from Harlequin Resorts solicitors, we see that Peter Binose and some other news outlets who published Peter Binose’s letter received some nasty communications indeed.
In for a penny, in for a pound and all that – and let the truth out.
“The greedy developers and government valued money over everything. They gambled with Joselle Small’s life – but it was Joselle, her husband and family who lost.”
Over three years ago on this very website, BFP reader Gorillaphant declared what any fool could see for hisself: Buccament Bay Resort is built on a flood plain between two mountains, so close to the sea and sea level that death and disaster was bound to come.
It was only a matter of when, not if.
And as Peter Binose reminded all in his letter we published earlier today (Harlequin Buccament Bay flood tragedy – Caused by greed and stupidity)…
“Buccament Bay Resort was built on a known flood plane and areas that were known as swamp. Flooding of this area has been happening since the very beginning of the valley, which acts like a great funnel draining into the bay itself.
Everyone knew that, certainly the locals and most certainly the planners and government surveyors knew that.”
Joselle Small did not have to die, swept away by raging waters that were predicted three years earlier.
But the greedy developers and government valued money over everything. They gambled with Joselle Small’s life – but it was Joselle, her husband and family who lost.
