When A Prime Minister Of Barbados Sued A Canadian For Libel – And Lost

Abused Foreign Investor Embarrassed The Barbadian Government By Telling The Truth

Back in November, 2008 we told you about how the Government of Barbados ignored the Barbados courts and illegally sent in the army to seize the assets of Nitin Amersey, a Canadian investor who had entered a joint venture in cotton with the Barbados Government. The story was precipitated by an article at Keltruth Blog revealing that Keltruth had acquired thousands of previously secret documents about that dark time in our history. (Anytime the Rule of Law is ignored by our Government is a dark time – but when they send the army in contrary to a judge’s order that is definitely third-world banana republic time.)

Now Keltruth Blog reveals more documents that tell the tale of how a Barbados Prime Minister sued Nitin Amersey for libel in the same case and LOST!

That, my friends, is a piece of Barbados history that you simply won’t be reading in the Barbados (cough, cough) “News” media.

For Barbados and for our children, this threatening of court witnesses must stop. This firing of court witnesses must stop. This harassment of court witnesses must stop.

If the police will not stop it, then we must turn to the court of world opinion. Barbados Free Press will do everything it can to ensure that each of our three million visitors a year learn how Bajan citizens and court witnesses are threatened, harassed and fired from their jobs by the powerful cartel that runs this island.

This must and will stop.
