Denis Lowe the Cahill Scammer

L-R): Edison Alleyne (Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Environment), Margot Harvey (Chairman, Sanitation Service Authority), Dr Denis Lowe (Minister of Environment), Clare Cowan (CEO of Cahill Energy), Christopher Sinckler (Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs), Denis Kellman (Minister of Housing, Lands and Rural Development), Senator Darcy Boyce (Minister of Energy in the Office of the Prime Minister)

The PM and Lowe are not prepared to address issues relative to transparency, but are finding justification for the CAHILL project to start. Since both men are adamant the project must start, I felt it was in the best interest of the island for us to examine the economic/financial implications of a WTE.

Notice each time Lowe is challenged he resorts to engaging in “political distractions.” Remember when Mottley questioned him about CAHILL, he recited his autobiography in parliament, letting us know how poor he grew up and displayed unverified copy of his doctorate, while saying Mottley did not have a LEC to practice law in Barbados. The resident DLP yard-fowls obviously ran with this as it took “centre stage” for discussion, thereby distracting from the issues of transparency and accountability as it relates to CAHILL.

AG Brathwaite promised to investigate if there was any truth to these allegations. However, since he has NOT RETURNED to the public or parliament with the RESULTS of his INVESTIGATIONS, we can safely assume Lowe was LYING.

Moreover, a VIGILANT and RESPONSIBLE MEDIA (in the interest of transparency) would have REMINDED Brathwaite of his PROMISE and pressured him to REVEAL THE FACTS or EXPOSE HIM as a FRAUD and LIAR if he FAILED to do so, since enough time has elapsed.

Now we are witnessing Lowe, in the face of criticism, again refusing to answer questions about CAHILL and resorting to attacking social media. He is fully aware this source of news, especially BU, has kept the flames burning under CAHILL, while the Nation, Advocate, Barbados Today, CBC and experienced journalists such as David Ellis continue to give him a “free pass,” $200 for passing GO, and a “get out of jail free” card.

What is more comical is the Nation’s lack of interest in exposing CAHILL and other IMPORTANT ISSUES affecting Barbados, but preferred to send an “undercover reporter” to EXPOSE a WHORE HOUSE or featuring two “skippers” as a front page story. If that media house in interested in sleaze, perhaps they should send “undercover reporters” to Bridgette International Bar in Nelson Street so as to inform us about the variety of nationalities of women who sell their “wares” in that establishment.

BU must be congratulated for continued efforts in highlighting CAHILL with commendable zeal and remaining steadfast despite the DLP infiltrators trying unsuccessfully to “politically spin” the issue.

    But you have not disproved what CTO alleged, that is that Jepter Ince is simple. Deal with the issue, is he simple or not?

    “The turnabout in Mr. Obiang’s fortunes is part of an effort by the federal government to recover assets it says were stolen by foreign officials — dictators, politicians and ruling elites – and laundered in the United States. Since its start in 2010, the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative has grown to include a dozen government lawyers and teams from the F.B.I. and Homeland Security.”

    @David, can you ensure the world knows about this Cahill fiasco. Let us hashtag the Cahill stories with such hashtags as #UsJusticeDepartment #ImpeachDenisLowe ##RCMP #UKFinancialCrimesUnit ##CahillEnergyBarbados #Cahill #FBI you can add more relevant hashtags

    It’s the easiest way to draw international attention to the Cahill deal. We cannot allow another Greenland, 3S or Dodds

    You already got them: BWA head office, Andrews Sugar Factory (already destroyed), Grotto ‘low income’ $500 per square foot condominiums, Lancaster houses, Coverley not-village……………..

    Should I go on?

    What about the SBRC racket and the IONICS scam deal? How many tens and tens of millions of dollars have SBRC and IONICS taken in taxpayer money for CAPACITY as oppose to services/goods/product provided??

    These things have to be exposed or the international community will not know, which reduces the chances of investigations of those who take advantage and enrich themselves with the help of and aided by corrupt, greedy politicians and other public officials.

    Would be good model for Barbados politicians to follow.

    “FORMER contractor general Greg Christie says that Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller should lead all aspiring parliamentarians in declaring her assets, income, and liabilities for public scrutiny amidst growing calls from her People’s National Party (PNP) for Opposition Leader Andrew Holness to lay bare his finances and details of the transactions for the house he is building in Beverly Hills, St Andrew.”

    But according to the documents the GoB is responsible for getting planning permission NOT Cahill.


  8. David February 17, 2016 at 6:48 PM #


    Do you mean prepare the EIA for submission to the TCP?

    Heads of Terms (Final)

    “The government shall procure that all Consents shall be granted for the PG plant at the Site within six months of application for the same by CEB and shall procure the Environmental Protection Department, the Town and Country Development Planning Office and other competent authorities comply with all statutory or other requirements and procedures relating to the granting of such Consents.”

    All yuh sure permission wasn’t already granted within the six months agreed to?


  10. David February 17, 2016 at 8:18 PM #


    At no time in the pronouncements from government ministers has there been an admission permission was sought and granted by the TCP.

    You are reading the terms incorrectly
    The government is not responsible for the creation / preparation of the submission to TCP or any other government body they are responsible for making sure all government bodies do their reviews and approvals in a timely manner . however the submissions must be correct and lawful and abide by the laws of Barbados
    To date no submissions have been made to any government dept.
    Case in point the waste analysis study and final report.
    Nothing official has gone to the government for review … A clear breach
    Cahill are responsible for the design ,build and operation of the plant
    They have done nothing to date other than an estimate to the tune of $700million based on assumptions and guess work.

    Barbados still has NO TRANSPARENCY – shame. I wouldn’t live there. I just wouldn’t live there.

    Say what you want about the United States, it does persecute dishonest politicians, it does have transparency and integrity, lots of excitement too. The North American Auto Show in Detroit is a big deal, Madi Gras in New Orleans is a big deal. This too, The NFL Superbowl.

    Another Scammer

    Air Products pulls out of Tees Valley EfWs


    Air Products is quitting the energy-from waste (EfW) sector and has pulled the plug on its two major gasification facilities on Teesside.

    A statement from the company’s base in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, Air Products said that exiting the sector would cost between $900m and $1bn (£700m) in writing down its EfW assets.

    The initial facility in the north-east TV1 (pictured) was expected to be completed this year while the identical plant TV2, believed to be 72% complete, was mothballed in November – attributed to the first plant taking longer than expected.

    Now the firm has decided “it is no longer in the best interest of the company and its shareholders to continue the Tees Valley projects”.

    It said testing and analysis indicated that “additional design and operational challenges would require significant time and cost to rectify”.

    The firm said it “will work to optimise the cash value of its investments” but does not specify how this will be done.

    It hopes that exiting the EfW business “will allow the company to direct its resources to its core business of industrial gases”.

    Air Products chief executive Seifi Ghasemi said: “We pushed very hard to make this new EfW technology work and I would like to thank the team who worked so diligently.

    “We appreciate the hard work of our employees and contractors at the site, and certainly understand their disappointment in this decision. We are also disappointed with the outcome.”

    The company said there are currently approximately 125 employees at the site and the business office, as well as approximately 20 contractors.

    Unite regional officer Steve Cason described the announcement as a “massive surprise” and was hoping to find out more at a meeting with the facility manager Andrew Connolly.

    In March, the company denied Unite claims that TV-1 site had been mothballed, saying ”Air Products continues to work on starting up the TV-1 facility, targeting the end of this year for commercial operation. Some contract workers have been released, but this is consistent with the type of work currently being carried out at TV-1.

    ”As previously stated, we have identified learnings that are being implemented into the TV-1 facility and we are currently in a period with higher engineering, design, and procurement activity and less activity in the field. We expect the activity in the field to again pick-up in a few months.”

    Both facilities have been designed to generate 49.9MW of renewable electricity a year, using 350,000 tonnes of non-recyclable residual waste.

    Why is Dr Denise Lowe so adamant that Cahill Plasma Gasification must go ahead? Oh how I miss politicians like Harold Blackman who would put country first and break party ranks. Where has all the good politicians gone Dr Denise Lowe?

    You and I and the BU family know why!

    I suspect that an election will be called before there is transparency on the Cahill project. Indeed the portents are trending towards a snap election by mid year. After all, most of the Political Class in the House have become eligible for the receipt of their pensions and the Economic news is unlikely to get better before 2018.

    Sad that the BP will not hold anyone accountable. In our beloved country of Barbados young boys are sent to prison for a marijuana cigarette and young women for steal a package of Ramon. Sadly the honorable aristocrats are free to steal without consequences.
