Update:Deltro Group: Barbadians Have a Right to Question the Character of the Del Mastros

Determination[202]   The appeal as against conviction is dismissed. The appeal as to sentence is varied to set aside the restitution order; otherwise the appeal as to sentence is dismissed. Dean Del Mastro shall be taken into custody, immediately, to serve the balance of his sentenceJustice J. Bryan Shaughnessy – R. v Del Mastro, 2016 ONSC 2071 (CanLII)

Apparently there was a town hall meeting held in Barbados two weeks ago that was organized by the Deltro Group to share information about a plant to manufacture photovoltaic panels and a solar farm proposed for Waterford site. Sorry that BU was unable to attend. We understand the project is awaiting approval from the Town Planning Department and therefore it is appropriate to label the meeting held as an Open House meeting and NOT a Town Hall.

Of interest to BU is that the principals of Deltro Group appeared on the VOB talk show to share information about the status of the project. Barbadians were assured that an Environmental Impact Assessment is not required after meetings with Minister Chris Sinckler, Donville Inniss and other government officials.

Despite the naked support VoB talk show host Glyne Murray gave to Dean Del Mastro and the Deltro Group, BU and Barbadians have a right to ask questions AND to demand answers. Murray should not forget that this government has a poor record of being transparent and good governance read Cahill Energy.

Does anyone find it amusing that the Deltro Group has shipped millions of dollars in equipment to Barbados BEFORE securing approval from the Town Planning Department? According to Dean Del Mastro there is a right to concessions in the legislation and it is for this reason millions of dollars in equipment is in storage and Deltro Group has spent upwards to 40 million dollars so far, according to them.

It continues to amaze the BU household given the huge investment in education the number of Barbadians who called the program to support the Deltro Group project because it will create employment and generate foreign exchange. Let the record show that the BU household is NOT against foreign investment. What we DEMAND is for companies who want to invest in Barbados they be allowed to do in an environment where transparency and good governance is paramount.

There is enough information available to the public to inform a high level of scepticism about the principals of Deltro Group David and Dean Del Mastro. Both have had to appear in the Canadian courts, one was charged and convicted of election fraud and the other divorce matters. BU gives credence to the court documents and NOT the mouthings of Del Mastro’s PR spin.

See the above links to the court matters for David and Dean Del Maestro to support Barbadians making their minds up for themselves. The job of the media – and talk show host Glyne Murray – is to share information with the public. Murray is entitled to his opinion but he should avoid foisting that opinion on the public to suggest his is the only feasible position. The disclosure Murray, a VOB talk show host, gave at the end of the interview with Del Maestro was distasteful. What authority does he have to avail the facility of VOB to Del Maestro? This is the first time the company has come to the public to share information. We have a right to be sceptical until we are able to analyse and verify all information.

Del Mastro you need to share information with the social media if you want to be fulsome in your communication strategy.

Related link:

The BU household is not yet convinced about the quality of character Dean and David Del Maestro. We need to be convinced. Unlike Glyne Murray who prefers that we focus on the project, No such luck from BU. The quality of character of the principals behind Deltro Group will be our focus.

Glyne Murray should note the text quoted at the top of the blog that Del Maestro was convicted of election fraud.

    Both governments have over the years worked very hard so that Barbados could become a magnet for criminals …..both foreign and local and made the island conducive for them to successfully engage in bribery, corruption, fraud, money laundering, drug dealing, gun running and am sure there is much more that we know nothing about, since they both spent decades creating the right environment so that the island is a protected a haven for white and other criminals.

    So much so that many these criminals became emboldened enough to compromise the ports….. with deadly consequences.

    The Barbados brand is not damaged. It is NONEXISTENT. Only the masses with their narrow nationalist mind, indoctrinated in school that Barbadians are the masters of the Caribbean, think that this place has a bright future.

    “Beyond imagination”. Yes, indeed. Crime, decline and low standards everywhere. A country without future for the children, except as maids and servants on Apes Hill or Sandals Plantation.

    Barrow was no a true leader with vision for a bright future when he pressed for independence against common wisdom. He acted like Rev. Henry Kane in Poltergeist, leading the masses into the abyss of hell in exchange for a Mercedes.

    Icelandic PM calls snap election due to child sex abuse scandal

    Caroline Mortimer @cjmortimer 5 hours ago4 comments

    Bjarni Benediktsson has said he hopes to hold fresh elections in November AFP/Getty Images
    The Icelandic prime minister has called a snap parliamentary election following allegations his party covered up a child sex abuse scandal involving his father.

    One of the three parties in his coalition government, which was formed just nine month ago, Bright Future announced they were withdrawing from the government due to a “breach of trust” after Bjarni Benediktsson reportedly tried to cover up allegations that his father helped to get a convicted paedophile’s “honour restored” – a legal term which allowed him to apply for certain jobs.

    Speaking to reporters, Mr Benediktsson said: “We have lost the majority and I don’t see anything that indicates we can regain that… I am calling an election”.

    He said he hoped the fresh elections could be held in November.

    His Independence party are accused of trying to conceal a letter written by his father, Benedikt Sveinsson, had written recommending that his friend, Hjalti Sigurjón Hauksson – who was convicted in 2004 for repeatedly raping his stepdaughter from the age of five to 17 – have his “honour restored”.

    Under Icelandic law, “restoring honour” means a person can have their “civil standing” restored – allowing people with serious convictions to apply for certain jobs without erasing their criminal records.”

    exactly. The ONLY reason he got convicted on such a flyweight charge, is because he was a flyweight and hence sacrificial. “We do charge and try offending politicians” they can say…..read he wasn’t smart enough to get around the simple rules like his more illustrious counterparts. The businessman is the family related partner, Dean is the mouthpiece. Like all such things, the question is who is the link between them and the GoB. It is unlikely they “found each other”.

    As the Nation boldly screams from its front page headline today “Speak Up”, perhaps someone should assist the Canadian authorities by advising them to investigate further.

    And would this request by the police chief for assistance also refer to the suggestion apparently made elsewhere online of the existence of a certain check allegedly drawn on an overseas bank account?

    Date:
    Thursday, September 14, 2017 – 11:00

    Barbados police have seized a significant cache of guns and ammunition that arrived by sea from Trinidad, hidden among vehicle parts.

    A total of 16 firearms and 593 rounds of assorted ammunition were found in four separate operations.

    Police say that over 400 rounds of ammunition and six firearms were seized at the Bridgetown Port as a result of an intelligence-led operation involving Customs Enforcement Officers and Members of the Anti-Gun Unit.

    Police have detained several people for questioning.”
