Barbados Speaker of the House Michael Carrington is a crooked lawyer – stole $250,000 from client – disobeyed court order to pay it back

“A message to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart…

Michael Carrington is a crooked lawyer who stole a quarter million dollars from a vulnerable 78 year old pensioner. That simple truth means that Carrington is not fit to be a Member of Parliament let alone Speaker of the House.”

It is a simple matter, really, and one that is hardly unknown in Barbados. Over two years ago a lawyer was supposed to transfer about a quarter of a million dollars from his trust account to a Mr. John Griffiths, the beneficiary of his aunt’s estate.

    We do need a referendum on the queen business. I’m of two minds, but I don’t trust the politicians to do the right thing. We need a structured national debate and then a referendum. this is history and we can’t entrust the future to a bunch of crooks we elected. EVERYONE MUST VOTE ON THIS.

    I want to be an Untouchable too. without being a Politician or Lawyer.
    How about the fellow a few months ago get catch taking $ 250.000 USD in cash going into NY, tell me if he should not be living off of Uncle Sam all like now. Why is the Local Press so tight lipped, nothing heard bout here.
    All these Politicians need to be exposed.

  6. Michael Carrington need to be struck off the register just as Mr. Fields, they did the same thing, kept clients money, until they had to be taken to court; but Barbadians need to remember Mr. Carrington and the likes of Leroy Parris are the Prime Minister’s friend, while Mr. Fields is not in that category or not so privileged as to have the PM of Barbados as his friend .
