Michael Carrington and Allison Helen Alexander-Lovell – Is the Law an Ass?

Allison Helen Alexander-Lovell

This week [9/5/2017] the local press reported as follows:

a “41-year-old female attorney-at-law was Tuesday suspended from practising law in Barbados for 18 months, after she was found guilty of professional misconduct. Tuesday, the Court of Appeal handed down the decision against Allison Helen Alexander-Lovell of No. 140 Breezy Hill, Halton, St Philip, who was released on $50,000 bail with two sureties in March last year on a charge of stealing $165,543.88 belonging to Cecil Marshall between July 30 and September 7, 2015“.

In January 2015 BU reported as follows:

The Speaker of the House Michael Carrington QC has been ordered by Justice Jacqueline Cornelius of the High Court of Barbados to hand over $250,000.00 to a client. A transaction in abeyance for the last two years.The ruling confirms what the BU household has been posting about and what Barbadians already know – Barbados Underground

    Let me get the thread started and the ball rolling. Michael Carrington (scumbag) got it easy because his party in power. As far as this scumbag goes I have no sympathy for him and do not plan on electing him (ever) again. He is not involved in anything positive and I have not seen him in public addressing any issues whatsoever. All he is do is make himself a nuisance in the House. I can’t stress enough that Michael Carrington could not continue as an MP if he was indicted on fraud and embezzlement (both serious criminal offences) so that matter had to be resolved quietly, and quickly (see: judiciously)

    In case you don’t know, DLP is before country. It would of been bad for guvment if Carrington was indicted and had to resign from politics because that SMW seat would go to BLP in a jiffy (Bi-election). (No sitting MP can have a criminal record; read the constitution people)

    Notice how Fruendel didn’t have anything to say to Michael Carrington except to seek legal counsel to save face and appease the public. DLP would do anything, even if it means breaking the law to protect themselves and scumbags like Michael Carrington, and the 16/14 majority. These miscreants accustom to jumping through loopholes. That one Lashley yet to explain why he can’t go back to US (another seat would be gone that is why)

    As for Alexander-Lovell, had she been DLP she would not be out on bail or even suspended. In fact all she would have to do is wait it out. I suppose she would also write a fancy cheque to make it all go away.

    Do you see the trend here? DLP OR GO HOME. Fruendel Stuart would do anything, will jump through any loophole and lie to the people of Barbados to avoid dealing with consequences that would rattle the DLP, even if it means protecting that scumbag Michael Carrington. Get a lawyer. (wtf?)

    I don’t know what changed these men between 2013 and now because these are not the same people we chose to lead the country in 2008.

    I will take my X elsewhere and lead all Barbadians to vote Dem out of office throughout this land, far and wide, and across all districts. Not one DLP seat in 2018! And if Dem think the law is an ass, let Dem pontificate with any shenanigans over the next 6 months leading up to elections, or anytime during the election (iPads, $100 bills), and I will dismantle the DLP one constituency council at a time.

    The DLP should never be reeldcted or given not one seat ever again for their dusregard fir the people particulsrly those who suffered injury at the hands of their criminal minded ministers and their criminal friends…read CLICO..

    Likewise BLP has their own criminal friends in the background waiting for the opportunity to continue their own criminal actions against bajans. ..they all must be stopped.

    The lawyers in Barbados needed a very serious wakeup call….they have helped to destroy the island and any confidence people had in them with their cintinuos thefts of clients funds and selling out their clients to insurance companies and anyone who would pay them, the amount of exposure they have gotten over the last few years in the newspapers and on social medial should tell them that Bajans are no longer willing to be victimized by those lawyers who are greedy and have no souls.

  • It isn’t one but two lawyers whose cases seem to be going together ….. ah ha you say … productivity improvements at last on the horizon in the system!!!

    The Court of Appeal and Chief Justice have been at the two ladies since last year.

    http://www.nationnews.com/nationnews/news/82261/lawyers-theft-charges-return-court-october

    “Chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee of the Barbados Bar Association, Marguerite Woodstock-Riley QC, in requesting an adjournment, informed the court yesterday that there had been a matter of procedure that was to be addressed, since neither of the attorneys nor their defence counsel had been sent copies of individual reports pertaining to their cases. The Court of Appeal, headed by Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, acceded to the request and ordered that relevant submissions should be made before July 29. (TS)

    June 16th 2016 …. matter adjourned until June 29th 2016!!

    For sure, matter of procedure cannot take too long you would say … just need to send the individual reports to the two ladies and their counsel!!!

    Not so fast, a year later and here’s the progress of the Court of Appeal and Chief Justice!!

    https://www.barbadostoday.bb/2017/05/09/suspended-3/

    “In the meantime, another female attorney, who has found herself in legal hot water also appeared before the Court of Appeal this morning. However, the disciplinary case brought against Joyce Griffith did not get off the ground since Griffith was not only reportedly unwell, but showed up without legal counsel. “The court gave her an opportunity to find representation and that matter was adjourned until June 29,” Weekes told Barbados TODAY.

    Ms Griffith hasn’t got a lawyer!!!

    … and when google is consulted this has been going on since for ever.

    Corruption is a real and present evil in Barbados.

    There is really only one voice raised against it …. it happens to be David Commissiong.

    Does that mean he will be the next PM?

    Is he even running for office?

    All I would say is that if the alternatives to the two parties don’t look sharp, he will be the only game in town.

    They will have given the game to him!!

    They don’t seem to realise what is the number one issue in Barbados.

    It takes a bunch of school children in Jamaica to bring the real issue to the fore in that country, do we have to wait on children here to do the same and point out to us what should be obvious?

    Look at the amount of time Grenville Phillips et al have been fearful of the repercussions they will face if they dare stand up and take on the powers that be frontally.

    The situation screams out for men and women to stand up and be counted yet that is not happening.

    Everybody prefers to keep quiet and avoid being run over and losing their picks.

    … except that they will be run over and will lose their picks!!

    We see the DLP/Kellman using parliament as a cloak to threaten Commissiong.

    Yet if you want a laugh have a look at what Kellman was able to do when it suited him and it was expedient to attack the BLP.

    https://barbadosfreepress.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/environmental-evil-defeated-thanks-to-richard-goddard-denis-kellman-greenland-is-a-park-not-a-dump/

    … and the BLP had no qualms 20 years ago in threatening a private citizen who dared stand up to the corruption.

    The point is, neither party is any good.

    The alternatives cannot be worse although they may also be … no good!!

    But you never know!!

    The only fact not open to dispute is that David Commissiong is standing up to be counted!!

  • Can you imagine that once upon a time Dennis Kellman was the minister of the environment?

    The issue as I understand it is that the Government is not following its own Physical Development Plan, which is supposed to be a blueprint for the environment.

    Black and white!!!!

    Please show me I am wrong and it isn’t that simple.

    This is a gift for any man or woman who would dare stand up!!

    David Commissiong must be cracking up laughing!!

    … and a new PDP is in the process of being prepared!!!

    Given the issues with water and sewage we have witnessed it would be reasonable to assume the new PDP will contain more stringent conditions for “development”.

    Antigua, Guyana, St. Vincent Dominica …… and the list goes on.

    Same sh!t.

    Anyone who stands up to be counted will attract support.

    They will also attract threats from the powers that be wishing to hold on to that perceived power.

    It is no point hoping the BLP now all of a sudden will be struck blind as Saul was on the road to Damascus … that set inspires absolutely no confidence and was always blind!!

    Only a miracle could change that fact, but nobody believes in God and miracles nowadays!!

    Imagine George Payne now is raising his voice against Kellman regarding the threats to Commissiong and he never raised any objection to the threats his party were making to Richard Goddard!!!!

    These two parties have lost all credibility.

    Barbados is a failed state … B and D responsible.

    They have created the vacuum into which anyone can step … Commissiong included!!

    So, if you don’t want Commissiong in the running, then stand up, be counted and provide a better viable alternative!!

    Same goes for Grenville et al.

    … or for that matter anyone.

    The time to pussyfoot trying to avoid offending the power brokers has long passed!!

    …. but don’t worry … there is always the next generation who might figure it all out.

    On the other hand, he felt that he needed to guard society from the albino-centric, ‘parro’ types who were waiting in the sidelines like vultures (as always). It was such thinking than led to his public order act, and some other shiite that he did …in what he thought was the public interest (in that it supported HIS interest – and he was a public asset 🙂 )

    EWB was an interesting man,a very proud man especialy when it came to his antecedents,he was the first one to make me conscious of being a Pelau as he referred to his Jewish and Planter ancestry,he had no time for any black power movement or going back to Africa.

    He was a proud Caribbean Pelau who was accepted by the majority of his peers as their master and he was a benevolent one providing you did not cross him,possibly from his planter heritage.

    He had a vision for the Caribbean despite initially objecting to the federation and the little 8,where he wished to create a power house akin to his buddy Lees but his people could not see it.

    His major failing was his inability to create a cadre of individuals to follow his vision,he was a complex and a many faceted man.

    And of course what he heard the people say was being said by less than half of them.

    And you are calling for a local Trump to dominate the scene…I thought we had a few doing his meme replica already!

    “David BU arent you embarrassed to be holding hands with Comissiong a person who have no qualms about supporting corrupt dictatorship
    Or can it be that you are a glorified hypocrite only seizing every opportunity that is politically expedient to your message for change of govt”……

    Angela, David and these on here would go along with Commissong and his support for the current regime in Venezuela because he is throwing licks in the DLP. Nothing more, nothing less. These will turn a blind eye to the fact that Commission and members of the BLP like Prescod, blindly supports the wannabe dictator Maduro. Commissong is currently doing their bidding PUBLICLY: to agitate and stall progress in this country until the BLP gets in power which I predict will be in 2023. Commissong wants a fact-finding mission to Venezuela. Nothing wrong with that, we all know the ‘West’ manipulates the media to paint any person/country they want to in a bad light. We also know the ‘West’ will fund and support the opposition led marches. However the facts are clear, Venezuelans suffering, and fleeing their country under the current government. I know for sure hundreds are in the island of Trinidad. They also had a march here in Barbados. It was given minimal coverage, and definitely not highlighted here on BU.

    You can attack Comisiong all you want it does NOT change the fact that it is his democratic right under our laws to ask for a judicial review. You should note if you agree to his right to ask for a review it has nothing to do with the matter you raised concerning Venezuela. His views on Venezuela you may agree or disagree in much the same way you agree with a teefing lawyer continuing to preside over our Lower House.

    From your postings here on BU about EWB, you never knew the man, he had no real vision, he was following a going trend for 10 years( 1961-1971 ) but, failed because of his inability to nip in the bud the corruption that come with the development , as John said, “EWB doomed Barbados”

  • Can you clarify…”Believe it or not Barbados was once run on the basis of cooperation…”?
    What period was this most evidently beneficial to Bajans?

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Sure, from after 1648 for about 300 years!!

    If you look at the utterances of the politicians from independence you will see they concentrate on division.

    Division is only necessary if cooperation exists among people!!

    You wouldn’t waste too much time trying to divide people who are already pretty much divided!!

    … and if there is something to steal as there was at Independence, then clearly Barbados must have been run in a beneficial manner.

    Now, there really isn’t much to steal any more!!

    Ergo, the post independence period mussee one of decline.

  • I found it absolutely amazing that political yard-fowl Angela Skeete described David BU as being a “glorified hypocrite” for his perceived support of David Commisiong’s exercising his legal right as a citizen, to challenge the Hyatt project.

    A similar characterization could also be applicable to Skeete, who displayed her “glorified hypocrisy” and “seized every opportunity that is politically expedient to (her) message to support” the unethical actions of this inept DLP administration.

    Recall Skeete in her FORMER PERSONA as the AC consortium of yard-fowls, “had no qualms about supporting this corrupt” inept DLP administration under circumstances where there was not any evidence of transparency and accountability.

    She was NOT “EMBARRASSED TO BE HOLDING HANDS” with and defending Leroy Parris; a known DLP supporter who duped several policy holders through the CLICO fiasco.

    The DLP yard-fowl was NOT “EMBARRASSED TO BE HOLDING HANDS” with David Thompson when she QUESTIONED the AUTHENTICITY of the Deloitte forensic audit of CLICO’s operations and defended a $3,333,000 payment to Leroy Parris through Thompson’s law firm, facilitated under the guise of by what the audit described as a “fraudulent invoice” for legal services that were never rendered.
    “ac July 10, 2012 at 12:35 PM #: So tell me BLP yardfowls what is so UNETHICAL about Thompson and Associates BEING PAID for SERVICES RENDERED or even attorney client privilege.”

    Angela Skeete was NOT “EMBARRASSED TO BE HOLDING HANDS” with “Douglas Leopald Phillips” when “he” for purposes of retaliatory aggression “published” on BU, information from Lisa Marshall’s personal to imply she stole funds from the Transport Board, because she used the “Brass Tacks” forum to ask for her legally due severance payment after she and other employees were retrenched from TB.

    Angela Skeete was NOT “EMBARRASSED TO BE HOLDING HANDS” with dishonest lawyer and Speaker Michael Carrington who ignored repeated request from his former client Michael Griffiths and with-held the elderly gentleman’s funds. Although the court found favour with Griffiths and ordered Carrington to pay the money inclusive of interest, Skeete was adamant Carrington was innocent.
    Conversely, Lisa was NOT DISMISSED from TB for THEFT or brought before the court via CIVIL or CRIMINAL procedures on THEFT CHARGES, but Angela Skeete was adamant that Lisa is a thief.

    Skeete was not “EMBARRASSED TO BE HOLDING HANDS” with dishonest lawyer and DLP member Richard Byer, when she DEFENDED his DISHONESTY for charging Caves of Barbados Ltd. $766,855.24 as legal fees to give an opinion on a loan, under circumstances where another lawyer charged $19,550 for providing a similar service.

    Skeete constantly displays “glorified hypocrisy” and, according to her leader Freundel Stuart, “sanctimonious hypocrisy.”
