Port Authority Inc Vs Rock Hard Cement Limited with documents

markmaloney_markcumminsThe matter of Rock Hard Cement ignoring an enforcement order issued by the Chief Town Planner continues to crowd the news cycle in Barbados. The matter was scheduled to be addressed by the Barbados Court this week, however, to the surprise of everyone, we learned that Mark Maloney, the principal of Rock Hard Cement Ltd was not served (information for another blog).

Here is a copy of a letter sent to Mark Maloney, Chairman of Rock Hard Cement Ltd from Lystra Kodilyne, Attorney-at-law for Barbados Port Inc. The taxpaying public deserves an explanation!

    You might be right but I don’t think they expected this much glare. And now that Roy Morris’s cojones are growing they cannot escape intense public scrutiny.

    In 2007 when BU fired up you comment was being directed at BLP yardfowls, in 2016 there is role reversal. Around and around we go…

    @Frustrated Businessman at 3:40 PM your comment that “Maloney contends that the use-right for import, storing, processing and transporting cement on that site has existed … He may be a narcissist like Cummings but he is clearly not stupid. If his facts are correct he is legally right to carry on that kind of business.” is good.

    Your posts have been quite enlightening and generally devoid of only partisan fluff of some others.

    Even if there is possible existing zonal usage approvals at that site, we still come back to the basic issue of permission to build. He never got that from his lessor or from TCP.

    At day’s end this is absolutely much ado simply to affirm a required party donation – as others have noted.

    This entire episode was being done in full glare of the public and the bosses at the Port (as noted above); so any executive could have inquired and stopped proceedings in the absence of lease approvals, if they so desired.

    At least we get to see the donation payment played out brazenly in public…and some enjoy it as some TCP power-play.

    But seems to me that you and @Col B appreciate it as the ‘inside-cricket’ racketeering play that it truly is!

    What is the situation with the building of the illegal cement bond at Spring Garden? Is work still on-going or has it ground to a halt?
    What is ADM’s position on the locating of a cement manufacturer next door to the lone flour mill in Barbados??


  6. Geoffrey Greene June 17, 2016 at 6:32 AM #

    It would very informative if we could see the import and customs documentation for the Rock Hard cement imports. Maybe this will tells us what price Mr. Maloney is paying to buy the cement, that will confirm one of two things-

    i) If the cement is being ‘dumped’ into Barbados

    ii) If the activity of importing cement is really a cover for something else such as a sophisticated mechanism for moving accumulated rewards denominated in BDS$ into a foreign currency like US$ or CAN$

    It’s a disgusting shame and disgrace that all the crooks on the island are held up to this status for the young people to respect….who should not be respected…they are criminals….all of them and the nastiness for government ministers and politicians enable their criminality…..crooks….. Bjerkham, Cow, Bizzy, Leroy Parris, Peter Harris, Maloney, Tempro, Altman…etc…all of these will seek and acquire pimphood titles to keep the island in a perpetual blight of criminality….all the politicians should be hung…, for misleading and lying to the people, particularly the young people who are unaware.

  12. David June 17, 2016 at 7:27 PM #

    Dale Marshall There are, of course, many issues in this debate, some central, some subsidiary. May I offer from the benefits of my legal experience, the following: an enforcement notice is issued by the Chief Town Planner (CTP) where it is felt that an individual did a development, for example, building any structure, without having first obtained the permission to do so from the CTP.

    When the enforcement notice is served, the developer can appeal to the court or apply to the CTP for permission to retain the structure. The CTP can then say yes, or no. If he says no, then the developer has the right of appeal to the Minister responsible for Town Planning.

    It is only after those avenues are exhausted that the CTP is permitted to cause the demolition of the structure.

    I have to assume that all of the processes were followed, and the ultimate answer would have been "no".

    After all this, Preconco would then have been directed to remove the structure. It is only where Preconco did not comply with the direction to remove the structure, that the CTP is able to remove it.

    That being the case, Preconco must have ultimately the lawful direction to remove the structure.

    I use that roundabout daily, and I have never felt unsafe at the presence of the structure in the roundabout. But for me, that cannot be the point. We don’t get to pick and choose which laws we follow and which laws we ignore. That is the absence of the rule of law.

    May I also offer the following last comment. Preconco is a major construction company in Barbados, with a whole cadre to technical people on staff or available to it.

    Why should an elderly man in the depths of the country living on a cart road be expected to seek town planning permission to add on a room to his house, but Preconco or any other big company, with all the knowledge, expertise and finance to be able to comply with the legal requirements, be given a free pass when they do not follow the law?

    If the old man in the country must comply, so too must the corporate mogul.

    Perhaps we might also address the contractual arrangements for the opportunity to maintain a roundabout or any other public space.


  13. Pieceuhderockyeahright June 17, 2016 at 7:42 PM #

    @ Dale Marshall

    If only your hands were clean of the anecdotal blood of the Christ.

    Here you are speaking of “If the old man in the country must comply, so too must the corporate mogul.”

    Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

    The DLP is the worst government that the country Barbados has had but certainly when I see you and Mia Mottley leading the charge for righteousness and the administration of Law for Barbados it carries me swiftly to thinking of Lucifer fighting in the army of the Lord during the final battle of Good against Evil

    If thou wouldst be holier than them, we would be grateful if you would under the “pressage” of Freedom of Information, publish your assets to the Bajan public @ 2016.

    Mark Maloney is a spiteful man, especially since his knighthood is now an impossibility and Rock Hard is a damaged brand. Thats why he is intent on leaving the Lears round about bare, this is his way of sticking his middle finger up at the public and the public service.

    The cruelest blow of all is how easy the PM and MOF has thrown him under the bus both issuing edicts that he is to be shunned until after the pending election.


  18. Charlie June 18, 2016 at 10:09 AM #

    I also find it quite amusing that Mark Maloney allowed the geriatric scammers (BW, BB,COW and BS) to push him as the front man for all these ‘deals’. He does have to be grateful though, at least Bjerkhamn refused to make him the front man for Cahill when that scam was being put together.


  19. Pieceuhderockyeahright June 18, 2016 at 11:55 AM #

    @ Charlie

    You do the geriatric scammers Bizzy, Bkarkham Calf and BS a serious disservice.

    “The Code Noir initially took shape in Louis XIV’s edict of 1685. Although subsequent decrees modified a few of the code’s provisions, this first document established the main lines for the policing of slavery right up to 1789.”

    Charlie, do you study people? I have a little hobby, watching people and what they do and I then try to understand why they do what they do.

    THose geriatric scammers understand the opportunist that Baloney is.

    He is predictable, he is their “pitbull” who believes that his reward will be their inheritance when they die so he HAS TO BE WHAT HE IS, to show his loyalty as he seeks to ingratiate himself to all of them.

    The issue with predictable dogs like Baloney is that they cant think, rather, see too far beyond their leash.

    His would be the understandable hope that (a) one of his dog masters dies and he is left to rule their kingdom and or (b) all of them die, simultaneously and he, by some miraculous rule of succession, becomes the massa of these investors.

    Ergo his alacrity and ignoramus attitude which he sees in Sir Calf and which he has incorporated? into his style of encounter with the niggras, Chief among whom is the Chief Town Planner who is “an uppity nigger”

    But I digress from that Code Noir thingy didnt I?

    Whites stick together and so do “ecky beckys” but Baloney is not an “ecky Becky” so the Code Noir rule that prescribes the inheritor CANNOT, BY ANY METHODOLOGY OTHER THAN LUCRETIA BORGIA METHODOLOGIES, bring Baloney to that throne, “he shall always be a bridesmaid but never the bride.”

    And lest baloney shall forget I would wish to recall to his mind Article of the Code Noir which states “Article XII. Children born from marriages between slaves shall be slaves, and if the husband and wife have different masters, they shall belong to the masters of the female slave, not to the master of her husband.”

    Baloney should now understand that according to such clearly defined and practiced rules that he ent really one of them privileged geriatric scammers” but is in fact “a belonging” to be used and ultimately discarded by the true massa

    Bless his pretensive soul!

    Workers back at Rock Hard

    Kenmore Bynoe,

    Added 18 June 2016


    A worker atop the Rock Hard structure yesterday. (Picture by Kenmore Bynoe.)


    The partial building is at the centre of a court case between the Town and Country Planning Department and the Rock Hard Cement Company.

    The Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins served an enforcement notice on the company on May 20 ordering that its construction be stopped.

    However, businessman Mark Maloney, owner of the company insisted that he was doing nothing wrong.

    This week the matter in which the company is accused of refusing to carry out the instructions of the Chief Town Planner went before the District “A” Magistrates’ Court and was adjourned until June 24 by Magistrate Douglas Frederick. (KB)

    I have it very good authority that Rock Hard Cement has contracted Structural System/BRC to install the roof on the illegal cement bond by the Flour Mill. We do need to know if Williams Industries Limited is partaking in the illegal action down there.


  23. David June 19, 2016 at 7:29 AM #


    Unless there is proof is incomprehensible that Bizzy would undertake work with an enforcement order being ligated.

  25. Well Well & Consequences June 19, 2016 at 7:59 AM #

    So…let them continue, we will know how serious Fruendel is when a cease and desist order is served on the other criminal Bizzy Williams and we will also be able to confirm that the 10,000 dollars a year for 3 years he publicly offered the police….is indeed bribe money…it can all be then tied together….if Fruendel is serious about stopping law breaking by Maloney, Bizzy et al.


  26. TheGazer June 19, 2016 at 10:47 AM #

    I have been watching the decent developments in the Mark Maloney story. It appears that Mark Maloney has a total disregard for local officials as he has at least four areas of conflict with those in authority.

    Let us agree that regardless of what we think, the man Mark Maloney is no fool. He would not embark on such courses of action unless he was quite certain that there was strength in his position; that when the showdown came that he would be the one to prevail.

    And yet the events of the past few weeks seem to suggest that his calculations have gone awry. I think he made a fundamental mistake when he not only declared that ‘he was above the law, but the very future of the island was in his hands”. Impetuous man that he is, he did not master the art of making tons of money on the sly and and at the same time keeping his mouth shut and a very low profile. One out of three is not a passing grade.

    He has discovered the usefulness of lackeys; and here too he learnt a next lesson. Lackeys can be over enthusiastic and draw parallels where there are none. In equating Maloney’s hut with the statue of Bussa, this lackey has Maloney making a mockery of the history of Barbados. So far Mark Maloney has displayed contempt for the law, those in authority, and for the history of Barbados.

    But there is a leading actor in this story; one who has remained silent. Mark Maloney would not have exhibited the level of arrogance and blatant disregard for the law, unless he felt they were those who were in a position of authority that would back his play? Who are these power brokers? Who are these faceless and nameless men/women that he felt were in his pocket. Some of his earlier blusterings appeared to be a threat to spill his guts if he did not get his way.

    Now that is the story I am interested in. I am eagerly awaiting his revelations.


  27. David June 19, 2016 at 11:45 AM #

    What also gives terrific insight also is how Maloney has reacted to the knocking down of the Preconco House which was located in the middle of the Lear’s Roundabout and where a TCP enforcement order was outstanding. Why not demonstrate some commitment to the area and Barbados by continuing to maintain the roundabout? A retaliatory action by government should be to NOT renew the contract with Adopt-a-Mile.


  28. TheGazer June 19, 2016 at 11:50 AM #

    @WWC 7:59 a.m.
    ‘we will also be able to confirm that the 10,000 dollars a year for 3 years he publicly offered the police….. is bribe money’

    Is it a donation or a bribe?

    Let us give Mr. Williams the benefit of doubt and assume that he was motivated by the very best of intentions? However, can the RBFP ignore these large donations of Mr. Williams and treat him in an impartial manner? Do these contributions give him extra leverage when matters involves the police?

    In an island, where we have a single police force, it would be best if the Police force itself could not accept donations or that a limit be set on the amount that an individual or corporation can donate to the police during the year; a token amount say $250.00. The police force must be insulated from donations that could influence their actions or appear to do so.

    If businessmen are feeling generous and want to donate more than $250.00, then the QEH, UWI and charities can benefit from this generosity.

    Perhaps, the money is donated to some ‘police charity’; a different kettle of fish.


  29. Colonel Buggy June 19, 2016 at 12:20 PM #

    Have you ever heard anyone donating anything to the sugar workers when we had a sugar industry,which we a were told made this country, other than the billionaire Mr Money, or to other lowly paid workers, who need the help more than anyone else?
    Giving donations to high profile government service – departments, is a way of buying preferential treatment.

    This Government, especially Minister Lowe, may be stupid, but they are not that foolish. Somebody is making a packet out of this arrangement. Probably more than the pay packet of the Bulldozer.
    Up to now, we the taxpayers are in the dark as to how much it is costing the government to maintain the ABC highway as compared to when NCC was in charge.

    Charlie June 19, 2016 at 7:21 AM
    Certainly Moloney’s workers and any other contractor’s workers who are still working on the site after a cease and desist order, are in effect aiding and abeting Maloney to break the laws of the land and should be dealt with accordingly.
    But this may not be the case in the Otherbarbados.

    How much money did Barbados Tourism Authority give to Maloney for the Top Gear Festival? Rumours have it that his personal company, who holds the lease for the lands at Bushy Park, was given US$6 MILLION Dollars


  36. Well Well & Consequences June 19, 2016 at 3:04 PM #

    The Gazer…no one donates money to train police recruits…it’s usually donated to a police benevolent society or some such, through fundraising..Bizzy is trying to bribe the police not to touch him, his brother, Maloney and Bjerkham when they commit crimes against the people and country.

    The police should refuse that money…you do not give known crooks the benefit of any doubt…known crooks can be nothing else but crooks…it’s all they know.

    The only people Maloney felt had his back and made him untouchable are the shithead politicians who take his bribe money, that’s the only reason he believes he has this strength and above the law attitude, but Boyce works for Bizzy and by extension Maloney, Fruendel cant say he did not know this before giving Boyce the town planning portfolio. ..but let’s see how that town planning mess will work out…the politicians are weak and corrupt. I will not be surprised if Maloney starts punishibg them…as he should.

    The mistake Maloney made is being arrogant with no patience….if had waited 5 more years to show that he was untouchable, the politicians would have been helpless to topple him from that high horse he built for himself….but he is still weak and fair game, easy to crush at this stage of the game..the only bait he has to use are the workers who need their jobs, but should be smart enough to know they can find other jobs and to get away fromthat massa wannabe….Maloney.

    The owners of the property at Bushy Park need to apply pressure to the government to get their money.

    How did they manage to mess everything up, they are leaders in name only, everything else is a farce. Colonel…Stuart needs a swift kick to the backside, all of this corruption and bribery by Maloney and his ministers happened under Fruendel’s wstch or lack of…it’s a mess.

    “The Code Noir initially took shape in Louis XIV’s edict of 1685. Although subsequent decrees modified a few of the code’s provisions, this first document established the main lines for the policing of slavery right up to 1789.”

    One can glean from those two “pieces” quoted above that you are a widely read man with whom Franz Fanon would have be most pleased.

    Now how should we classify the bloodline of Maloney using the Sun King’s rating scale of copulation between l’homme blanc and la négresse?

    Is he quadroon or quarteron, octoroon and quintroon? Only his real ‘ecky-becky’ daddy can determine.

    If only we could replicate, in true Star Trek fashion, a Bajan Lucretia Borgia to rustle up a few fine exotic dishes in the August chamber of dishonourable men and women maybe we could get rid of the leeches that are sucking the taxpayers to death.

    Should we summon the ghost of the Mandingo Lucretia Borgia from the Falconhurst plantation to do the job of planting some poison ivy at the Coverley morgue? Maybe she, Lucretia, can bring along Tituba the house slave of Parris the white ancestor of Leroy from Lemon Arbor to bring Greenverbs to a fair witch-hunting trial in the modern Salem of Barbados on Whitepark Road.

    The Gazer @ 10:47 am.

    By far the best post on this topic.

    Mr Maloney, by virtue of his reported reactions to the TCPD enforcement actions so far, has evidenced a small mindedness that indicates he never expected such actions and was/is blue vex about them. They have the potential to significantly affect his bottom line.

    The TCPD, on the other hand, appears to be displaying a single mindedness of purpose, bordering on vindictiveness, that appears to be totally out of character of the normal actions of a Barbados Government department where the Minister bears ultimate responsibility. The Lears roundabout gambit does not now appear to be a shot across the bow but to be part of a concerted strategy.

    This war might therefore be the resultant of an extremely strong force or recent development that threatened this Government and that is considered by one that matters to be only amenable to favourable resolution if the Government takes immediate strong actions that show that, whoever else might have been facilitating Mr. Maloney in his past deeds, it was not the PM.

    There may therefore be a number of Ministers quaking in their boots, as they too might be thrown to the wolves

    The mouthings of one Minister then becomes more understandable and indeed might betoken a significant schism in the Cabinet as its members contemplate the actions of a figurative worm that has turned and calculate their best options for the near future.

    That future should be very interesting!


  39. Well Well & Consequences June 19, 2016 at 7:03 PM #

    From the mutterings I have been hearing now for months, one Peter Harris was getting impatient that he did not have more control over the government and made his move, but that did not quite work out…..being aware of the competition between the slimiest of the business people to control the island and ALL the money, it would be safe to say that because of his impatience and arrogance…Maloney made a bigger move, I can tell ya they are all fed up of the stupid black men calling themselves the ministers and leaders of Barbados and planned to do something about it…but Maloney lost patience..lol

    I cant say the leaders dont deserve it…they refuse to take care of the majority who elect them, so the minorites whom they look out for are planning to take care of them…no good deed goes unpunished.
