David Comissiong to File Court Action (Biometrics) Against Government

Biometrics-FingerprintingCitizen advocacy against The IMMIGRATION (BIOMETRICS) REGULATIONS 2015 are NULL, VOID and Un-Constitutional led by David Comissiong and other parties has met with some success. The Acting Chief Immigration Officer Wayne Marshall declared last week that the rollout of the fingerprinting project has been deferred to allow for certain legal clarifications to be done.

In reaction to a response from the Prime Minister’s Office David Comissiong has signalled his intention to pursue Court action to prevent the Immigration Department from requesting biometric data as the leave and enter Barbados.

See the following documents which are of public interest that were shared by David Comissiong.

    Maybe the real reason behind government wanting to have a database containing fingerprints of all citizens is with an upcoming election, police will be able to scan any documents falling from the back of a truck for fingerprints to identify who pushed the documents off (Cahill, lies to parliament etc). Or, the pm and ag have finally arrived at a plan to track the source money that changes hands during election time.

    This man aspires to be the leader of the “free world”.

    For your information:

    Trump’s grandfather was a pimp and tax evader; his father a member of the KKK
    As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; Donald Trump’s racism can easily be traced through his lineage.

    Most families of enormous wealth have a dark and sometimes scandalous, even monstrous past. Donald Trump’s clan is no exception to that rule. His grandfather was a pimp and a tax evader, his father a racist who would in the course of his life, clash with New York City Police as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and then as a wealthy real estate magnate, refuse to rent to people of color.
    Donald Trump’s legacy is anything but a rags to riches story. His dad kicked the bucket with $250-$300 million in the bank. The man who wants to ban all people of a particular religion from travel, wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth, his was white gold. The only thing more obnoxious than Donald Trump himself, is his family’s money grubbing, bigoted history.
    Trump’s Grandfather: Pimp and Tax Evader
    Donald Trump’s grandfather, Frederick or Frederich Trump, made his money from operating a decadent restaurant and hotel during the Gold Rush at Klondike in the Yukon.
    That’s a nice way of saying it.
    Trump’s supporters the heirs of segregation politics
    Obama and Trump – Are they really different?
    Donald Trump’s dirty secret in Cincinnati
    Billionare Republican candidate Donald Trump proposes forced registration of American Muslims
    “Trump made his first fortune operating boom-town hotels, restaurants and brothels”, is more accurate, according to the CBC news report, “Donald Trump’s grandfather ran Canadian brothel during gold rush, author says”. Author Gwenda Blair simply wrote, “”The bulk of the cash flow came from the sale of liquor and sex.”
    Trump’s grandfather was born in Germany, to parents who were employed by a vineyard. He moved to New York City in 1885 where he became a barber. After six years of this, Frederick Trump moved across the United States to Seattle, Washington, where he owned and operated what he referred to as a “decadent restaurant” that was actually called “Poodle Dog” in Seattle’s red light district. Interestingly, the name and concept that had already been established in San Francisco. (He named his restaurant after a dog but would later make money selling horse meat) Around this time Frederick Trump became a US citizen.
    A Yukon Sun Newspaper writer described his business: “For single men the Arctic has excellent accommodations as well as the best restaurant in Bennett, but I would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings – and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex”.
    Trump moved to Monte Cristo, Wash. in 1894, and then four years later, shortly after the Klondike gold rush began, he relocated again to Bennett, British Columbia.  Here he ran the “Actic Restaurant and Hotel”.  He would next build the “White Horse restaurant and Inn” in Whitehorse, Yukon. 
    An article published this year by Politico, explains that Frederick Trump sold off his investments and returned to Germany in 1901, as he sensed the end of the gold rush and a subsequent end to prostitution.  The following year, he married his former neighbor, Elizabeth Christ in his native German town of Kallstadt.  Then he came under heavy scrutiny by the German government,
    The country had compulsory military service for men which had to be fulfilled by the age of 35.  Donald Trump’s grandfather waited until he was 35 to go back to Germany.  He had already amassed great wealth worth well more than half a million US dollars, or 80,000 marks.  While his town council was eager to keep Trump and his money, who billed himself as a man who “avoided bars” and led “a quiet life”, other German authorities had a different plan, the Politico article explains.  In their view, Trump had relocated to Germany in order to avoid both tax and military-service obligations.
    “…the regional authorities refused to let Trump off the hook. Unlike his grandson, who would become too big to fail in business and, more recently, to ignore in politics, Friedrich Trump was not big enough to get away with being a draft-dodger. He and his wife, then pregnant with Fred, Donald’s father, would not be allowed to resume their German citizenship and it would not be extended to their daughter; instead, they were deported—the same fate that Donald would like to impose on undocumented immigrants in the U.S. today.”  
    The fact that Donald Trump has done so well in the Republican polls is quite amazing, as the party that we think of as conservative, would be expected to shun a man who created exploitative beauty pageants and was born rich strictly because of the nefarious activities of his ancestors.  
    Trump’s Father: a Lifetime of Racist Practices
    Donald Trump  has often said he made his money “the old-fashioned way,” and this is true, in that he prospered from racism.
    A New York Times article published 01 June 1927, related Donald Trump’s father Fred Trump’s role in a Ku Klux Klan brawl that pitted 1,000 klansmen against 100 New York City Police in Queens.  Though he wasn’t officially charged, Fred Trump was one of seven klansmen arrested during the incident.  It probably wasn’t very shocking at the time as America’s racist practices were in full swing generations after Abe Lincoln freed the country’s African-American slaves.  In fact the mid-20’s saw a peak in KKK activity.  Donald Trump would later deny his father’s involvement in the KKK brawl in spite of the fact that it happened two decades before he was born.  Fred Trump’s enthusiasm for racist practices never changed until he was forced to do so by the law.
    Presidential Candidate Donald Trump joined his father’s real estate company in New York in 1971, and only two years later, the company was served with a civil rights lawsuit that was filed against the Trump organization because it refused to rent to Black people.  The Urban League got wind of the racist rental policy and actually sent both Black and White people in to apply for apartments that belonged to complexes owned by the Trumps.  What they proved, was that Black people were denied rentals across the board, and only Whites were approved.  A Village Voice article by Wayne Barrett, published in 1979, blew the lid off the Trump organization’s brewing pot of racist practices.
    “Three doormen were told to discourage blacks who came seeking apartments when the manager was out, either by claiming no vacancies or hiking up the rents. A super said he was instructed to send black applicants to the central office but to accept white applications on site. Another rental agent said that Fred Trump had instructed him not to rent to blacks. Further, the agent said Trump wanted ‘to decrease the number of black tenants’ already in the development ‘by encouraging them to locate housing elsewhere.'”
    The article explains that Trump’s reaction was to claim that the suit was a, “nationwide drive to force owners of moderate and luxury apartments to rent to welfare recipients.”
    “‘We are not going to be forced by anyone to put people…in our buildings to the detriment of tenants who have, for many years, lived in these buildings, raised families in them, and who plan to continue to live there. That would be reverse discrimination,’ he said. ‘The government is not going to experiment with our buildings to the detriment of ourselves and the thousands who live in them now.'”   
    Indeed, Trump’s wild, largely uninformed and unintelligent rants are the legacy of men who walked over the backs of other Americans to gain and secure their wealth.  This may be symbolic to the American capitalist way, but it falls short of any form of greatness or real human success.  As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Alvin…trust you to get something wrong…Donald Trump is not of enormous wealth, he is a con man…surviving from con to con, projecting a facade of wealth because of connections, just like his racist grandfather and racist nazi father who was also only crook with good connections….it’s all a facade meant to deceive, your head will spin to see the various bankruptcy filings and lawsuits against that clown.

    Trump has always piggybacked on others to survive because he is not too bright and does not have any real skills other than his big stupid mouth. If elected the people in the US will be getting just what they deserve in the form of that semi literate jackass….end of story.

  9. de pedantic Dribbler March 25, 2016 at 5:54 AM #

    @Pieces, you gave a detailed walk through of a terrorist/criminal’s ID subterfuge to allow travel surreptitiously. And you also clarified in simple terms that a f’print is first and foremost a means to confirm ID.

    As citizens we can take legal action against the measures proposed by GoB. We can demand our privacy and rights but the realities of a terror driven world which bring death and violence to the homeland will cause govts to implement what they perceive as safety measures to thwart these terror threats. Citizens will be dragged screaming and shouting but moved we will be….

    Privacy is important the world over….”European governments have begun to grasp the urgency of the challenge. Belgium has doubled the budget for its intelligence services and introduced legislation to detain terror suspects WITHOUT CHARGE for longer than previously; … But there is a sense that European governments are behind the curve, struggling to cope with a surge in terrorism and a flood of migrants.”

    Are we here in the region behind the curve too. Trinidad according to published reports have citizens who have returned from Syria after serving as combatants. When that is matched to this report that “It is also reported …that a “number of suspects have returned from Syria with new identities secured on high-quality forged documents…” do WE regionally have a burgeoning problem too?

    Will we speak in a pan-Europe voice that gets us to “The European Union has been examining the sharing of passenger information for … years… but some members oppose the idea on privacy grounds.”

    Amusingly former Sec State Clinton said; ” It’s actually easier for the United States to get flight manifests from EU nations than it is for [them] to get them from their own neighbors”. Sure that also applies regionally.

    The combination of mid east terrorists & Bajan (Caribbean) sold passports & possible violence from or in our region is a wake-up call. The price could very well be fingerprinting to get in and out of our own piece of the rock!


  10. David March 25, 2016 at 6:27 AM #

    We don’t know what has motivated the GoB to insist Barbadians are fingerprinted in and out of their homeland. Although there is a suspicion the integrity of the Bajan passport is suspect.


  11. pieceuhderockyeahright March 25, 2016 at 6:57 AM #

    @ de Pedantic Dribbler

    Like you have said, I too long ago acceded that ID verification was critical.

    By extension pre embarkation validation MUST be a part of the process unless ((I) we wish to render the entire exercise useless since having my prints and not knowing whose prints the are still invalidates the process and (ii) there is a network of back office real time checks on prints with the relevant authorities because, if I am a non national, Immigration still WOULD NOT HAVE BASELINE DATA ON ME ANYWAYS.

    Technically speaking it means that the passport CAN BE ABANDONED since we are saying, de facto, that it is not any real use and that the swipe and confirmation of one’s ID can facilitate visual confirmation as well unless the fingerprint software is flawed and like Balance showed DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY @ today.

    It’s like developing the ultimate chewing gum that cleans your teeth as you chew on it, and prevents cavities but, later realizing that trace saliva that is injected, causes renal failure.

    My point is that in addition to “clean-skins” (people not known to the law) fingerprints WITHOUT baseline data is equally worthless ergo Uncle SAMs matrix propagation in a country where the Attorney General, the Office of The Solicitor General, The Minister of State, The Immigration Department and the Prime Minister, eager to put their hands on US forex and appease America, showed the Americans how stupid we are. End of That Story.

    The new world order travel cycle will require you to submit your travel notification to the travel matrix a few days before you travel so that these checks are done in the back office before you get on a plane, ship or train that crosses a border. What do you tink?

    I asked this question re other Caribbean islands recently.

    Is Jamaica fingerprinting their citizens leaving and entering the island as well, if not, they should, seeing as their citizens tend to have more false documents when entering US…and if the US dont see the need to ask JA government, why would they ask Barbados’.

    The above link makes a good case for fingerprinting. ..but.

    @Pieces, what i tink is that you are a boss…wid assertions like: “It’s like developing the ultimate chewing gum that cleans your teeth as you chew on it, and prevents cavities but, later realizing that trace saliva that is injected, causes renal failure.” Proper. I also liked the caps wid Uncle SAM…our northern neighbors will figuratively detonate their Surface to Air Missiles from their School of Advanced Military studies …you too sweet!

    Anyhow, funnies aside…i have no disagreement wid a word. However, again I know that you are too smart not to accept and recognize that pre-checking of travelers has been on-going for a while.

    Yes this is now being codified in virtual stone – so to speak- as some sort of mandatory ting but it’s like the banking industry…we did more banking online and gradually bank branches started charging us more to come into the bank and bit by bit added charges for some online matters even as branches turned more to customer relation centers.

    Which traveler does not do online travel purchase of tickets etc…which don’t try to register for dat ting you talked about where you does get to move through faster

    …so weren’t we being pre-checked literally from all data submitted for the last five years or so….

    Anyhow, as I said you are right so on we go.

    incidentally can you please explain to your close friend WW&C that it has very little to do with a ‘digitized passport’ as compared to a more standard passport book.

    And by the way, are you actually saying that Bim will be tapped into a back-end AFIS or similar dbase for fprint checking? Wow!

    Is that a build of our data captured and do we go out to an ‘Interpol’ (I did not say US,lol) link for further validation help?? That is a major WOW factor for my limited thinking.

    Final, by the way….You correctly identified the major issue re the baseline data but as you also know at minimum minutae fprint data can be stashed on even standard machine readable documents to provide a simple one-to-one check at point of departure capture.

    A real time one-to-many validation requires comp power even in these days of scorching fast processors…but then therein lies the pre-checking validation…

    Ok clear as crystal!

  19. de pedantic Dribbler March 25, 2016 at 10:20 AM #

    No, WW&C. if you have to ask then you are not ofay with the de process .

    With respect, machine readable is a rather bland almost passe concept used with ICAO travel documents for generations. Our machine was and is ‘machine readable’!

    The technology has improved over the years of course to the current chip and other methodologies for full-on digital interface BUT dear WW&C there are myriad processes before that which still facilitate machine readability and would really not be correctly described as ‘digital’ .

    But anyhow enough of that. You can spend more time on google if you really want to delve into the area….but I expect with your knowledge of your relative’s digital passport and your current awareness you are fully up to speed in what you deem to be accurate and thus good to go.

    So no worries!

    Ooops.. “Our Passport (NOT machine) was and is ‘machine readable’!

    @David, why necessarily do they need to be linked. Interesting question you posed, but isn’t Immigration and Census population matters handled separately within government.

    There is a very strong argument to be made that never should the two be twinned as a merged or even regularly interfacing dbases!

  23. de pedantic Dribbler March 25, 2016 at 11:28 AM #

    WW&C, a simple comment. I am not an expert (Pieces and his grandson are) on the tech but I have been around it for a while. You obviously have not!

    The fact that our passport is not machine readable at Pearsons does not mean it does not have the previously mentioned ICAO machine readable feature. That is a basic aspect and is now so old school that very likely Pearsons has long done away with those readers.

    I do not dispute that Barbados like others need to move to a more widely accepted digital documents …that is not in question and such discussions has been – like the other blog mentioned re UWI – in the pipeline for a very LONG time!

    So yes I got it….i will leave you in your bliss!

    @ David [BU]

    According to my grandson the common key between two such databases can be the National registration number which is unique

    Suppose I was born on Jan 1 1930 my nrn would be 300131-**** with the last two digits signifying if I am male or female and the first two citizen or naturalized.

    That number like Revelations presages the number that no man shall buy or sell without

    At any rate census data is socio economic info name address age sex, income education level attained, type of dwelling, amenities, water, in house, stand pipe, Immigration data overlaps in common data which will never change nrn social security unless you are in a witness protection programme, but then has eye colors height weight most current pic etc.

    Technically baseline Census info should populate rather be available national ID and vice versa with nodes to police, immigration etc while national ID would be the central feeder for everyone including death certificate records,

    Census info is governed under very strict laws and whereas you can go to the ID department for a fee based copy of the voters list, you can’t do that with the census list.

    Integration of the two makes for good sense given five year censii and things like Labour force surveys would benefit as well. It would follow that the police would have its own data type comprised on National ID info and people who initially might not be on the immigration list since the police apprehended them at Consett Bay.

    While it makes sense to integrate them because each department want to be its own kingdom and wants to award contracts to its own buddies not one even considers inter compatibility

    Simply put one department is using excel and a nex fellow using Word for their records which is not a database program.

    Mine instead of country so like the $6m machine Davis Simmons oversaw the purchase for the police some years back, that behemoth cannot talk to any PCs in Central Police system.

    But you dun know that these estimates are built on that compartmentalization to permit those Kickbacks like that which happened at the Coastal Zone Unit where management set up a company and paid themselves to supply equipment to CZMU and not a man ent get lock up yet.

    @ De Pedantic Dribbler.

    I noted earlier that you mentioned that my staffing observations had “nothing to do with the fingerprinting” but the point I was making was that the fingerprinting processes are to guard against the undesirables getting on the vessels, either to get in the port of call illegally, and possibly do harm there, or do harm on the craft.

    I was only making the observation that the soft underbelly of the travel cycle not only included colluding Immigration officials and false passports, as evidenced by the US Naval captain and Deputy Director of the US 7th Fleet, but also included other staff who, being paid lowly wages could, for 30 pieces of silver, $20,000 per passport, or the Hairy Portal that the captain got, can be bribed to put a small parcel on a plane/boat here in BIM which is certainly not what we want.

    I wonder if as part of operational audits, there is an internal affairs agency that actively investigates these Humpty Dumpty insinuations or sets up Hairy Portal stings on suspect Duty Free staff at the airport or seaport? Whu you tink DPD?

I does still disagree wid you from time to time but generally not on issues of tech cause you and dat grandson of yours way too smarter in that area.

    But after all that fawnation, back to the point…

    …you have hit the nail on the head with “…as part of operational audits, there is an internal affairs agency that actively investigates these ..suspect Duty Free staff at the airport”.

    Essentially I was drawing attention to that type of fact….being that the staff would (should) have already undergone detailed background checking before being employed at any port …and thus the current f’print process had nada to do wid dem….And to your remark, surely on an ongoing basis the security chief should be doing exactly as you said.

    Last time I was at the airport I see dat fella who was a big major at the same BDF and they tell me he is the security chief there (is he?). So I hope that he is completely above reproach and is doing a sterling job of keeping all employees at GIAA under ‘strict manners’….(I remember he face and he was a cadet boy just like de fella Caswell so I hope he ain’t like some of he famous school chums, oh lawd)

    We on same page, Mr Pieces!

    BTW, you say you went to Waterford, how come so many of wanna all bout de place doh..in conniption & corruption, starting new party, causing confusion in opposition and tings like that. Very disappointing Mr Pieces…smile!

    For example I don’t hear bout boys or girls from Alleyne or Princess Margaret causing all dis sorta strife…or does they do they ting on de down low! lawd…

    Just saying. LOL.

    @ DPD.

    Speaking bout Cawmere you happen to know if Solutions Barbados had and video done of their meeting at Cawmere last week?

    De granson tek to liking a girl at de Nation, no not Vivianne, but he got that archive information from her.

    And DPD, no she is not as good as that fellow here (who I am sure that, given the precise information that he has), MUST HAVE access to Online Nation Archives.

    But as you can see from this newspaper article, dated 2003, this passport problem and its illegal sales through Humpty Dumpty has been going on for a loooooongggg time.

    Both under DLP and BLP administration!!

    13 years DPD you know how many Guyanese are now Bajans? and you know how many houses got built off that passport fee?

    Oh by the way . I know that you are a smart fellow so you will notice that the passports that I was talking about and the ones that Julie Wilson spoke of are 10 times as expensive.

    Humpty had explained that significant price increase and said that “due to the cost of inflation from 2003, his (Immigration?) people were selling the passport at $20,000

    I was going to ask you DPD, you are an international man in Murica, you think that by 2029 Barbados going be any further along or you think that being that 13 is an unlucky number that Barbados is going to be deeper in their do do??

    I only going tell you DPD, I had axe the granson to see if his girlfriend would put in a word for me down there at the Nation and he said that he was not going to spoil his chances with the new girl!! there is gratitude for you

    One of the reason that I will always have a problem with David Commissiong lies in his ability to “just do enough”

    While seeming to be so very interested in the rights and freedoms of the common man per fingerprinting and David just disappears.

    How many of you have read the Terrorism Act of 2015?

    Do you realise that the DPP can in what amounts to a prima facie application accuse any person that the government cares to so accuse, and lock your asses up?

    You see why a few of us understand the reason why our opposition would under the Troika Leader Mia Mottley, sit through the deployment of a series of readings of a “terrorist designation order” means an order of the Court designating a person as a terrorist or terrorist entity.”?

    Yet it is in these matters where what he is championing is something of such serious import, he just disa-effing-pears…

    116 comments on our freedom being sold down the drain at the whims and fancies of traitors like the DLP and the BLP.

    So now, since you are speaking out against the effing government your black/white donkey under a terrorist designation from any effing government or entity will result in your ass being incarcerated at will!!

    “Well done my good and faithful servants….”

    Pieces you need to start a serious activist group in BIM even at your advanced ‘ole age.

    Seriously my bro which country does not have one of those wicked pieces of legislation that can wrap one’s backside in some ‘best interest of national security’ act and lost yah way for a few days in jail….during which time all sorts of things one can confess to!

    These are all serious threats to freedom but unless there is a concerted efforts from all and sundry it gets lost in the shuffle.

    The unfortunate and scary part of it is that with a few well placed hacks or manufactured texts/phone calls an innocent person can be labelled as the worst type of wanna be terrorist.

    I am too old for that stuff.

    Here is what I see my brother in simple terms.

    In a country that people like Alvin believes is the best thing next to slice bread, the land of salt breads and flying fishes, purposely pluralized, you have a police department that its Commissioner of Police is reputed to have been monitoring the phone communications of its Prime Minister!! under instruction of the country’s Attorney General.

    If in times of “peace” this is the type of behaviour that obtains, what happens in time s of war?

    Which bajan barring Sidney Burnett and his cohort, banned for life, would their communications necessitate monitoring of their phone calls by the Office of the AG?

    Ok, ok, ok Dribbler, say that we do have a terrorist cell in Barbados, as is indicated by the United States National Intelligence Officer at Wildey, would such a cell be in the Office of the Prime Minister?

    I mean after all!!

    Though now that you mention it, that may have some foundation in truth given the Assassin of the English Language, Minister of Education, Ronald “the Childrun are is Reading Well” WeJonesing.

    And the other “Killer of Decimal Points” and Minister of Fine Ants. Now think of it all this DLP party is killers and murderers of the economy just like IS, for what them fellows administered on Palmyra, these guys have done to barbados’ economy.

    I did not know whee to post this but I siad that this is as good a place as any.

    Your social activism has, after many years, started to pay off.

    You are not there as yet though David, not by a long shot.

    A few suggestions from the ole man.

    (i). you need to continue to be seen as the champion of the Po Black Man. I am not saying that in a derogatory way, as if you were/are being charlatan but you maust understand where your strength lies.

    (ii). You have to build on that Clement Payne Image as an advocate for the rights of the people

    (iii) you have to choose your battles wisely, battles which you will win and those that get the maximum response from and coverage with the People.

    (iii) I do not see you as a political candidate per se cause bajans got this thing gainst people looks David. Dat was so when you were as school next to that tree of infamy and it going be so during our lifetimes.

    (iv) But what you can change and have changed is what people see you to be, in your wiser years, articulate and capable of delivering.

    (v) Build on this success. Create a Social Action Website and Blog that serves solely to advocate and promote Justice and championing the rights of the underdog. So all of your cases which had such focus, highlight them there AND, form an informal grouping of similar minded lawyers as you seem to have done with Eddie Hinkson (aspirant to the BLP P.M position)

    (vi) Seek out the dispossessed David, you can easily go to a Felicia Holder today and say to her, I will take your matter against Mark Baloney re civil litigation and wrongful death.

    (vii) If you really want to consolidate on your gains create a specific interactive blog which, while protecting the identity of the blogger, allows them to submit their specific matter to you. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEVERAGE YOUR SOCIAL CURRENCY, create a web instance for the submission of matters against LIME or FLOW. David there are virtually thousands of people in Barbados who have a mater agains LIME/FLOW that needs representation.

    (viii) BUNDLE IT, or do whatever wunna does do to “enjoining” multiple claimants under whatever category of multiple claimants to bring it to court.

    In one swoop these two matter will endear you to a population set bigger than most political candidates and permit you to leverage your “king maker” career a-birthing

    No Charlatanry involved with Abijah Holder David, you have kids and it should not be that Abijah or Luke, or Jahan or Shamar shouid fall and we go to Wuk Up while they form canon fodder.

    It should not mean that Wendell McClean is the last voice for the 21st century to speak out against LIME highway banditry aided and abetted by the FEAR Trading Commission

    They need to fear US David, fear what we represent and with that fear comes a grudging respect

    Independence Day 4th of July was fought by seditionists against the British throne.

    Let it be that your own life is one such telling memoire and testimony that DAVID COMISSIONG was here and did not bestride the HC grounds to come and rests comfortably next to the Bell Tower in Crumpton Street bewitched as it were by that bell tolling or last knoll.

    Let it be that G. O. Bell and Mr. Wharton, and Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Wellington and Chilly and Mr. Waldron, and Mr. Sutherland and Mr Jemmott and other “black” teachers who may or may not have past, can say of you that you did not flinch on this boundary just outside the walls of HC else de ole man fears, it would have been for nought

    See whu de ole man tell wunna bout dis passport ting?

    See why the United States government don’t trust the Barbados Immigratiom authorities?

    Dat miss chase report this

    “SHOPLIFTER AT CENTRE OF PASSPORT SCAM – It started out as a simple case of shoplifting.However, immigration officials are now investigating a possible Barbados passport scam, involving a woman who goes by multiple identities and nationalities. Appearing before District ‘A’ Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant Wednesday, Tyrone Sealy, an Immigration Officer attached to the Government department’s Investigating Unit, revealed that accused shoplifter Alexis Ernestine Charles had been issued with a Barbados passport under questionable circumstances. Sealy told the court that even though the 32 year-old Cane Garden, St Thomas resident was in possession of a valid passport, the associated documentation did not reflect that a Barbados ID card had been submitted, as was required for the official travel document to be issued.However, the plot got thicker when Sealy informed the court that the name on the passport was not Alexis Charles, even though it was presented by the woman yesterday when she was caught stealing $38.65 worth of items from the Roxy Supermarket on Eagle Hall, St Michael. To add to the investigating officer’s bewilderment, there was no record in the immigration system of the name, Hosanna Songs, which is contained in the official travel document that was issued on June 30, 2015 and expires in 2025.Furthermore, Sealy told the court his department could not find any trace of Althea Charles – another name by which the accused woman is known. He went further still and submitted into evidence, an affidavit through which the St Thomas resident had intended to apply for a name change. Sealy expressed concern about the location of the official seal on the document, adding that an investigation would be launched to determine who the woman really was and how she obtained a Barbados passport. He promised that the Immigration Department would pursue the matter to the fullest. Earlier, when police prosecutor Neville Reid introduced the shoplifting case, he said Charles had been charged at Black Rock Police Station yesterday under the name Alexis Ernestine Charles of Cane Garden, St Thomas, but was charged for theft earlier this year using the name Hosanna Songs.He also told the court that on those two occasions, the woman identified herself as a St Lucian national. However, the prosecutor noted that, according to the Forensic Scenes of Crime Unit, she claimed to be a Guyanese national when she used the name Althea Charles.In the meantime, the accused woman has pleaded guilty to the charge that she stole one can of cashew nuts and a bottle of olive oil from the Roxy Supermarket and was therefore remanded to HMP Dodds until August 10.”

    See how serious this passport fraud is?
