American complains about Barbados Justice system in child custody matter.

Talk ya talk!

By American “CU”

I feel it is my responsibility and duty to inform your readers, especially the ones here in the United States, on the favoritism and bias or non-decisions handed down as orders by some in your judicial system in Barbados. Especially if the presiding Judge happens to be friends with the opposing counsel, or maybe they both belong to the same labor party.

This all started back in May of this year, when my daughter  finally got an interview with the US embassy to obtain her Green Card for her and her daughter. Even though they were never married the child ended up with the father’s last name and the Embassy requested that he provided a letter of permission.

This ended up in the courts and this one judge that in my opinion did not have the desire to rule and therefore, started in motion a set of procedures that prolonged the request. She even included the Child Care Board and even they did not change her original thoughts, that if the mother wanted to leave the Island, she must leave her three year old daughter with the father.

Barbados internet drug companies accused of ‘playing russian roulette’ with patients’ lives and health

Tom Haughton’s Barbados-based organization has thousands of online addresses

U.S. Criminal Investigators target Haughton and his Barbados / Canadian internet operations

“So you don’t know, though, really, whether that product, which turned out to be fake was made in someone’s bathtub, in Egypt or in Turkey?” asked CBS News.

“I’m not going to speculate,” answered Tom Haughton.

The investigation into how fake prescription cancer drugs came into the USA continues with a new series of CBS News reports. Dozens of medical centres and doctors in the United States purchased fake Avastin chemo-therapy drugs that originated from a supposed US operation called “Montana Health Care Solutions”.

But “Montana Health Care Solutions” is confirmed as one of the numerous front operations for a Barbados-based group involved in unauthorized online sales of prescription drugs worldwide. Addresses in Montana, Alberta Canada, Minnesota and the United Kingdom are involved, but those places are way too cold – the real action is in Barbados!

“Situations like this are why federal health officials prohibit the importation of drugs through sources not approved by the FDA. As one expert told us, once you step outside the regulated route for drugs, you might as well be playing Russian roulette.”

from the CBS News report Fake Avastin importer claims he broke no laws

Like it or not, thanks to a man named Tom Haughton and his Barbados businesses, employees and associates – Barbados has become known as an epicenter in the dangerous world of black-market fake prescription drugs.

It can now be told that Barbados Free Press contributed to the ongoing CBS News efforts to uncover the truth about the source of the fake cancer drugs sold by Tom Haughton’s organization. CBS News and we at BFP still haven’t been able to answer two very important questions:

1/ Have any other known fake drugs been sold by the Haughton organization anywhere?

2/ Does Haughton’s organization supply any drugs to the Barbados Ministry of Health or any private clinics in Barbados?

Our sources tell us that the Barbados Ministry of Health refused to talk candidly with CBS News reporters. Our government should immediately tell Bajans the truth about whether any of our drugs were sourced through Haughton’s deadly supply chain.

Money Laundering Investigation

Barbados Free Press can also reveal that not only are U.S. Authorities looking into Haughton’s organisation to discover the manufacturer of the fake Avastin, there is also an investigation into whether any tax laws were broken. As our source informed us… Continue reading

Counterfeit cancer drug Avastin: Barbados in vortex of international investigation

Updated: March 7, 2012 7:29am AST

Two weeks after BFP broke the story of the connections between CanadaDrugs.com and Barbados black-market drug supplier Tom Haughton, the Wall Street Journal publishes further details.

Wall Street Journal says Barbados fake cancer drugs group businessman Tom Haughton is brother-in-law to Kris Thorkelson of CanadaDrugs.com.

Story says Haughton’s companies violated United States laws. Haughton says his companies are legal in the countries where they are located.

More coming.

Canada Drugs.com associated with Barbados fake cancer drugs group

Barbados Free Press has discovered that CanadaDrugs.com is associated with the Tom Haughton Barbados internet drug empire under investigation for selling fake Avastin anti-cancer drug. The domain name kdrug.net is registered to GDS Licensing Ltd, one of the Tom Haughton Barbados companies.

But when customers attempt to visit ‘kdrug.net’, they are directed to CanadaDrugs.com. Barbados Free Press has video of this happening from kdrug.net and from other Barbados group websites. The same thing happens with RxNorth.com and other domains.

LinkedIn says CanadaDrug.com ‘Director of e-business’ is Brock Gunter-Smith, Alex Herriot is COO, Kris Thorkelson is owner, Peer Allan is Manager of Software Development. Evelyn Mayor is Director Human Resources. CanadaDrugS.com and CanadaDrug.com are the same operation.

Reconnecting: Looking for Jack Smith (Wilson)

Privacy vs Helping Family: Where do we draw the line?

Every so often we receive requests to help locate long lost family members. Mostly they concern past generations and folks long gone to be with the Lord and that’s an easy decision. But sometimes the people could still be around and then what should we do?

Here’s the case of grandson seeking a grandfather he’s never met. Maybe the grandfather wants his privacy, maybe not. Maybe he’d love to hear from his grandson or maybe not. Maybe the grandfather is already passed.

Last Friday we had an all things Japan day just to think about those poor folks in the middle of the earthquake and nuclear disaster. Families, children, parents gone in an instant with no chance to see each other again however briefly this side of life. Part of the day was a Japanese-made movie called “Departures” that won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film a couple of years ago.

After seeing Departures and thinking about family, I’ll take a chance and post this in the hopes that one of our two million visitors a year might be able to help. If anyone disagrees, let us know please. Otherwise let’s see if we can help out a man looking for his Bajan grandfather…

Dear Friends at Barbados Free Press,

My name is Ozzie Smith, from the U.S., Boston, Massachusetts, and I am emailing you in hopes that you can assist me and family.

The attached photo is a pic of my grandfather, whom I have never met, neither seen a pic of him until this past weekend (April 9th & 10th). Continue reading

Ground Zero Mosque nothing more than Rubbing Salt in the Wound

For Edward from Brooklyn

“The kind of Muslims I wouldn’t mind building a mosque at Ground Zero (and there’s lots of them) would NEVER EVEN DREAM of building of mosque there.”
