Ponzi Knight gets 110 years for doing what so many others do without penalty.
One thing you can say about Allen Stanford: He spread his stolen billions around. Stanford favoured no single political party or politician, according to the US Embassy in Bridgetown. According to our sources he made political donations to both the Barbados Democratic Labour Party (DLP) and the Barbados Labour Party (BLP).
The BLP and the DLP kept Stanford’s money even after it was revealed that it was stolen from victims of his Ponzi schemes. There’s lots of precedent for that… after all, the DLP kept the campaign donations of Leroy Parris and friends even after it was revealed that the money came from victims of the CLICO and CL Financial frauds.
We call upon both the DLP and the BLP to declare how much money they and their politicians received from Stanford and to return the money immediately so that it can benefit the victims.
Over to you Freundel $tuart and Owen $ Arthur…
