Above: Businessman Samuels protests his illegal arrest
“ULP members must learn that supporting your political party when they are inflicting wrong on any citizen is an acceptance and involvement in an evil act on your part. You are as evil as the inflictors. You must speak out. It is the obligation of any decent human being to do so.”

Mr Leon “Bigger Biggs” Samuels was in most people’s minds attacked and his business destroyed because he ceased supporting the ruling political party, the Unity Labour Party [ULP].

“The amazing thing about “Bigger Biggs” is that he has remained a gentleman throughout the whole matter.”
Government favours Taiwanese over citizens
I write the following from British law, I hope it also applies to SVG…
I believe that the river bed and the water in the river is under the control of the government for protective reasons, not for commercial reasons, not for the extraction of income. Despite the governments control of the river banks and the bed of the river, the river bed, soil or ground there-under is owned by the adjacent land owners and is known as riparian ownership. If the river moves and land is added to the adjacent land owner, it remains the property of the adjacent land owner, not the government. Continue reading
