“All  actions by the Passport Officer in relation to the issuing of a passport and the charging and collecting of fees which were validated by subsections (1) and (2) respectively are validated and declared to have been lawful and the Passport Officer and every person acting on behalf of the Passport Officer are freed, acquitted, discharged and indemnified as well against the Queen’s Most Gracious Majesty, Her Heirs and Successors as against all other persons from all proceedings of any kind in respect of or consequent on any such actions.”

… all selling of citizenships and passports in the past is forgiven! (Amendments to law before Parliament on Monday June 2, 2014)

Passports and Citizenships for Sale – Get ’em while they are hot!

by Peter Binose

Has someone done something wrong that the ULP government want to bum rush this disgusting piece of legislation through Parliament? Whose arse are they trying to save? Is this an Act to make corruption legal?

What it say’s is that the passports issued in New York and elsewhere for inflated sums of money, those involved will now be reciprocally pardoned from any crime or wrong doing. Yes its an act to make past mal practice legal and non-actionable.

The question I ask, was any family member of the ruling party government involved in past passport renewal? New York, Washington? What happened?

Here ya go!
