Tsunami of Swiss, European visitors to our Leroy Parris – CLICO articles

UBS Swiss BankHundreds of Swiss and other continental visitors are arriving at Barbados Free Press to read our articles dealing with CLICO and Leroy Parris.

The trend started early last night and started to taper off about 11am Bridgetown, which is 5pm in Zurich, Switzerland where many (but not all) of the visitors originate. While most arrive through various Swiss and European telecom companies, a sizable number indicate the in-house networks of “UBS AG” and “Credit Suisse”.

Barbados Free Press has no idea why these visits are happening, but it seems obvious that the story links are being sent around via email because they are NOT originating from a single referrer as happens when another blog or website puts up a link to one of our stories.

The first-time visitors are arriving primarily at four stories and then spend an average of just under 9 minutes cruising around other Barbados Free Press CLICO/Parris articles. This loiter time, according to our own Cliverton, is really something.

The four articles receiving the most initial attention from the visitors are…

September 24, 2009: Report: Leroy Parris ‘may retire’ from CLICO. Question: Would they dare fire him?

September 22, 2009: Conflicts of Interest and Sinister Secrecy Continue in CLICO Scandal

June 3, 2009: CL Financial, CLICO Fraud Report: Dummy Company, Phantom “Consultancy” Payments, Vanishing Money Transfers From Company To Company

June 2, 2009: EXCLUSIVE REPORT BY BARBADOS FREE PRESS: CL Financial Group Collapse – Insiders Took Bribes To Have Company Purchase Land For More Than Market Value!

If you are a visitor from a Swiss financial institution, please tell us what is happening. Thanks!

CL Financial, CLICO Fraud Report: Dummy Company, Phantom “Consultancy” Payments, Vanishing Money Transfers From Company To Company

… However, reports this week indicated that forensic investigator Bob Lindquist has uncovered a dummy company associated with CL Financial and Clico.

The company is said to be linked to two former senior officials of CL Financial. Lindquist has been called in by Government to assist in untangling the maze of dealings in the CL Financial group in the wake of a State bailout of the conglomerate.

Sources said Lindquist has uncovered a paper trail showing the exchange of funds between the various companies of the group.  This paper trail suddenly came to an end after detailing the transfer of funds. The phantom payments were reportedly made under the guise of “consultancy fees” and cannot now be traced.

Sources would not reveal the names of the two men involved but would only say that they were high-ranking and had been influential in the company.”

“Criminal Activity On The Part Of Clico” Trinidad & Tobago Attorney General John Jeremie

CLICO Barbados ThompsonSo much for the claim that Barbados has effective oversight and regulation of public companies and the insurance industry.

The house of cards known as CLICO has fallen and it turns out that CLICO’s criminal activities were known and documented by the Government of Trinidad & Tobago as far back as 2006.

“Sources would not reveal the names of the two men involved but would only say that they were high-ranking and had been influential in the company.”

Meanwhile, the current forensic investigation by Bob Lindquist has apparently uncovered dummy companies, monies being transferred to nowhere and the ever-present “consultant fees” by the truckload.

Barbados Free Press Uncovers New CL Financial-Related Company Created Under Suspicious Circumstances

A CL Financial company called British American Insurance Company Limited is being sued over a US$300 million dollar Florida land deal.

A court document obtained by Barbados Free Press alleges that secret “incentives” (read “secret commissions”, “bribes” or “gifts”) were provided to company insiders in return for having CL Financial Group purchase the land for more than it was worth.

Barbados Free Press today discovered that a Senior CL Financial Executive named Robert FULLERTON formed a new Florida company B. A. Payment Services LLC on February 5, 2009 after all the trouble started with CLICO & CL Financial but only 14 days before the lawsuit was launched over the US$300 million dollar land deal.

We find the timing highly curious and we’re sure that Bob Lindquist and the Plantiff Green Island Holdings, LLC will too!
