John Annel|Barbados Receives another Blackeye

John Annel

The news that Police Superintendent John Annel appeared in magistrates court today charged in connection with 650 bullets between August 3 and September 20 is another ‘black-eye’ delivered to the Bajan brand in recent weeks. About one month ago a gunman sprayed bullets on a crowded Spring Garden Highway just as Kadooment rivalry was about to end. It resulted in 20 people shot!

A couple years ago if the average Barbadian was asked if such a brazen act was possible there would have been a resounding no. It does not matter how the Attorney General will spin this latest sorry John Annel episode, the general public will NOT be fooled.

Many are curious why the arrest at this time. When you factor the murder of a Caucasian Englishman to the mix allegedly involved in illegal activity, you have an island that is just like the rest.

  1. This only confirms what I have been saying about the Annel case, only under special circumstances will the CJ move that quickly to give bail, he is the only one who can, lawyers are viewing it with suspicion, obviously he had critical information.

    Local attorneys are viewing with suspicion the speed at which a senior police officer facing ammunition charges was able to secure bail.

    Mere hours after a magistrate remanded Acting Senior Superintendent of Police John Mark Annel to HMP Dodds until October 23, his lawyers Sir Richard Cheltenham and Shelly-Ann Seecharan were able to secure a bail hearing and convince Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson to release their client on $150,000 bail.

    Today, President of the Barbados Bar Association Liesel Weekes said it was not the norm for someone facing charges to receive a bail hearing this quickly.

    Weekes told Barbados TODAY the normal waiting time in recent years has been two to three weeks, insisting that the court must be seen as impartial in the manner in which it grants access to the judicial system.”


  2. So clearly the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) would be real, real interested in finding out wha’ gine on, and those DEA guys don’t play. They lock up their own when they get out of line.

    Unless that is, it is another CIA directed drug smuggling op. Even the DEA top guns know that while they might “lock up their own”, it is strictly verboten for them to interfere with any CIA drug operation they might stumble across in the course of their work – not to imply that I would have any information to suggest one way or another that the recent drug seizures are from another CIA op.

    See link below to an interview with investigative journalist Douglas Valentine, author of THE CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME – How Illegal Operations Corrupt America and the World

    Excerpt:

    Lars Schall: 70 years ago, on September 18, 1947, the National Security Act created the Central Intelligence Agency, CIA. Douglas, you refer to the CIA as “the organized crime branch of the U.S. government.” Why so? 

    Douglas Valentine: Everything the CIA does is illegal, which is why the government provides it with an impenetrable cloak of secrecy. While mythographers in the information industry portray America as a bastion of peace and democracy, CIA officers manage criminal organizations around the world. For example, the CIA hired one of America’s premier drug trafficker in the 1950s and 1960s, Santo Trafficante, to murder Fidel Castro. In exchange, the CIA allowed Trafficante to import tons of narcotics into America. The CIA sets up proprietary arms, shipping, and banking companies to facilitate the criminal drug trafficking organizations that do its dirty work. Mafia money gets mixed up in offshore banks with CIA money, until the two are indistinguishable.

    Drug trafficking is just one example.

  3. Firstly an apology to the families of the gentlemen I am about to mention, for hashing / rehashing this, but I think that it is important.

    Due to recent events, the nature of the work of both gentlemen and the relative proximity of their deaths to recent events, would it not be wise to re-open the investigations of the deaths of Kenrick Hutson and Sean Reece?

    Especially Reece, being an investigations expert, the proximity of his death to these events makes one ponder.


  4. In terms of bail. Recently we have seen murder accused get bail. I see no reason why a senior officer, with a respectable background of service, should not get bail.

    Stupse.


  5. Greenmonkey.

    Yes, the CIA has done crap before. Interfering in countries operations, things go south and then all heck breaks loose.

    Just as the British with Burnham. Their poodle turned into a Rottweiler (Burnham).

    Instead of congratulating the local shiite court for acting swiftly FOR A CHANGE, and calling for this kind of response to be the NORM, …. this shiite woman is complaining that the usual inefficiencies may have been dispensed with in this case….

    What a place…
    What a brass bowl…

      There is nothing wrong with Weekes making the observation, she just needed to go a bit further. Some more analysis?

    Securing quick bail for Annel was a real world move on several different fronts.

    One does not make ‘observations’ in the absence of objective analysis …unless one is a jackass….. or angela Skeete.

    It is hard to rid oneself of the Cro-Magnom DNA and despite your professed longing for “islandgal” one can “observe” that you don’t really like women.; as to “objective analysis” your past comments will buttress that conclusion.

    The President of the Bar Assoc. is doing what she was elected to do for her members, she is representing their interests and saying loudly what they have been complaining about for years i.e. we have clients who have to spend an inordinate amount of time at Dodds before they can get bail and tout de suite this accused get to spend time in his warm bed. She is to use the analogy “planting a flea” in the ear of those in charge of the justice system that next time we want equal treatment for our clients.

    You can have your beef with lawyers (as most of us do) but yuh gotta give “Jack e jacket” and “Jane she drawers”.

    Be Jesus Christ, Bushie.

    You gone toooo far.

    While women, by they gender, may be lawyers and at the same time know more than a few things about the first profession

    To equate the holders of heaven, that area somewhere midstream, with you albino-centric Devil, is beyond the pale.

    It represents the very thinking you otherwise are critical of. The thinking which made a ghost of Isis, the Mother of Horus.

    The origins of your three in one god system.


  13. It is perfectly acceptable and proper that an accused denied bail should apply to the duty judge for bail that day. By admitting that it ‘normally’ take two to three weeks is simply normalising incompetence.
    The more serious question is why should someone on such serious charges be offered bail? That is the question, when we have young men appearing before a brutal woman magistrate accused of stealing mobile phones and being remanded for a month, then fined Bds$3000. This is not class prejudice, it is savagery.


  14. @ Sargeant
    Bushie tends not to think like an NCO.
    Your protestations are therefore taken under advisement. (The proper response to someone who request or advises you to do something you have no intention of doing.) LOL

    @ Pacha
    Yours and Miller’s predisposition to those things ‘of a feminine nature’ are well documented. But Bushie has a whacker – and no time for the lotta political correctness.
    Most women are Delilahs and Jezebels by nature. They are as reliable and faithful as determined by the current man with whom they are emotionally attached.

    The original design is for a shiite man – (with clear limitations,) to be joined with a shiite woman – (with generally different, but equally shiitey limitations) to form a whole HUMAN entity with sensible potential.

    That is the DESIGN intent.

    These various male /female individuals who attempt to project themselves based on some ‘eddykashunal’ or professional achievement are only fooling themselves …and wunna BBB’s who do not own whackers.

    ….but NOT stinking Bushie.

    As to IslandGal, were she to associate appropriately with Bushie, de two o’ we would tek over this brass bowl island in short order …and have everyone on their P’s and Q’s with the proper application of the whacker and that wicked 2X4 …..
    …But like a typical woman, she continues to play the donkey…..


    • Bushie

      You should hold your head in shame. You are totally disrespectful of women and I suspect that the woman who gave birth to you (if it was a woman) would be shame to call you her son. That virulent attack, on the young female president of the bar, was silly and probably the most stupid thing that you have ever posted. I don’t think an apology would suffice.

    What a rare sane contribution from shallow Hal?

    Well done!

    You are getting there to truly fathom the abyss of ‘brass-bold balderdash’ permeating the two ‘Barbadoes’ of hypocrisy vs. the rule of law.

    At least EWB’s prescient advice did not fall on deaf ears.

    Now forget about turning Nelson Street and its environs into a Canary Wharf.


  16. @ Hal
    What is the ‘serious charge’?

    A marksman, who happens to be a senior police officer and who represented Barbados in the olympic sport of shooting for decades …having some bullets…?

    Skippa, that is a crime because some shiitehounds passed some shiite act a few years ago….
    A foolish thing to do… But does THAT make it a ‘SERIOUS’ offence?

    Surely they must have been some additional criminal intent with which he should be charged – if it is to be treated as ‘serious’ enough to put an officer with an otherwise spotless record (given recent promotions) in Dodds …while bigger fish continue to drive high-end cars that are now known to be of illegal status – having shafted the Ministry of Fine Ants of nuff nuff taxes… and likely facilitated the importation of illegal guns….

    This place is now so wicked that it would not surprise Bushie if the damn Devils are not in the process of locking up the few decent ones among us….
    We should have NEVER planted that shiite pitchfork at the damn garrison…

  19. @ Hal Austin September 27, 2017 at 10:16 AM

    And Hal, the miller forgot to tell that you since you are climbing the learning curve concerning the rule of law in ‘Buybadus’ you should see yourself twenty times ten smarter than the lowly poor English-speaking miller and thereby ask the following question:

    How is it that a ‘straightforward’ matter of possession of unauthorized bullets by the country’s top marksman and senior law enforcement officer can be so swiftly placed on the road of Justice but two projects involving the future economic survival of Barbados- namely the Hyatt erection and the fire-sale disposal of the BNTCL- can end up in a judicial cul-de-sac and languishing like RIP Van Winkle sine die?


  20. Jethro,
    I can play with you all day, but since you are stupid it does not give me joy. Who is the country’s top marksman, and who made that decision? I am sure people in the defence force, whose job it is to shoot, will dispute this. As to the senior law enforcement officer, the accused is an acting superintendent. I am sure the Acting Commissioner of Police will have something to say about that.
    Again, the two projects you mentioned can be laid at the door of the Registrar’s department – something I have said on numerous occasions.
    Just so you know, the Listing officer is the one who allocates cases to courts and s/he reports to the Registrar, who reports to the attorney general.
    If I were as dumb as you I would hide my face behind a nom de plume too. Sign up to the community college and improve yourself. I have just done, it is rewarding.


  21. Caswell

    You are quite right!

    Bushie should tender a sincere apology for this massive assault on the Most Sacred

    But that in itself would represent internal contradictions, on several sides

    Just last week we could not encourage you so to do. in relation to Insider.

    I WOULD RISK TO OPINE THAT THE POLICE HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS THAT ANNELL KEEPS BULLET IN THE SAME WAY THAT IT WAS KNOWN THAT THE GODLY DANIEL PRAYED THREE TIMES DAILY TOWARDS THE EAST AND COULD EASILY BE SEEN DOING SO FROM HIS WINDOW

    JUST AS A LAW WAS MADE TO SCREW DANIEL BECAUSE OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF HIM DOING SOMETHING THAT WAS ESSENTIALLY HARMLESS

    IT SEEMS A SIMILAR THING WAS DONE IN ANNEL’S CASE

    ANNELL MUST BE SILENCED SO THAT THE BIG UP PERSON SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ANSWER FOR, OR ABOUT THEIR CRIME
    SIMPLE


  25. Jethro,
    Are you now claiming to be a teacher? I rest my case. This explains the decline in the standard of education in Barbados, when a graduate teacher who cannot write basic English is teaching young people. I won’t ask what subject and which university.
    By the way, do you know what is a jurist? A case that has been adjourned still has to be re-allocated – usually to the same judge for continuity. That is done by the Listings officer.
    Your putrid language confirmed your are brain-dead. By the way, I have two young, dignified, intelligent teachers in my house.
    Just as I was trying to encourage them to do a sabbatical in Barbados you revealed who you are. I am sure you were educated at the North London community college.


  26. remember the woman taken in adultery brought to Jesus in John 8?

    same thing
    how did they catch her? those men were accustomed to rent penanny from her
    they used knowledge thy had about her against her

    babylonians used Daniels know habit of prayer against him after changing the law

    some envious incompetent cops use the fact that Anell has kept bullets at home against him–after they had the law changed

    these envious incompetent cops who are no doubt in league with the bajan bad boys got tired of Annel refusing to do the right thing

    perhaps Annel got tired of keeping quiet


    • It is one happy club. A few are gatekeepers and they are prepared to defend at any cost. Sadly this is hiow we roll. We have to keep trying!


  27. This is not a justification for crime, but should the leaders in our community do more – more selfless parenting – more selfless guidance – more selfless teaching – more selfless business objectives… for young people? Are too many in our community, having been deprived of a good foundation by our leaders, given to big dreams and conclude on a destructive path towards those big dreams. We do set some bad examples.

We need a significant aspirational national goal that is supported across all segments of the society – something that endures regardless of changes in political leadership – that endures from one generation to the next – to move forward. Something that parents tell their children about and their children tell their grandchildren about. We are selfishly drifting along, focusing on material things, with a reset every 5, 10 or 15 years.


    • Good comment Alien and what you are asking is mobilized by actors in the space who have the capacity to demonstrate leadership. The fact that you are confident in your observation is a stinging indictment on the quality of our education and people. The ‘character’ of our country is a mirror image of current state.

  36. @ Simple SImon,

    To make my point clear, he was apparently investigating corruption and than had an ‘accident’ with his own gun.


  37. @ Alien September 27, 2017 at 4:35 PM

    That ethos to which you implicitly allude was once widely manifested in the Bajan enthusiasm for Education. It was once valued (along with Commonsense) not only as a morally uplifting pathway to personal development and for lifting many out of perceived material poverty but also as an altruistic way to contribute to national development.

    That is why Barbados once had an enviable reputation as being the most educated and well-rounded people in the region and who could hold their own anywhere in the English-speaking world especially in the UK and the Commonwealth.

    Sadly, with too much ‘freeness’ has come ‘cheapness’ and an almost total adulteration of that ethos.

    Just look at the composition of the highest decision-making body of the country today and you would be spoilt for choice in gathering the dregs from the barrel of intellectual talent available on the Island.

    The old folks always said a ‘little learning can be a dangerous thing’ proving that putting a book of nonsense in the hands of a fool can only turn him into an academic jackass.

    How can a man like Sinckler be kept on as the MoF for so long without being a ‘supreme’ reflection of the prevailing intellectual paucity existing in the country?


  38. Yeah….what lie will Fiendel and Sinckler tell to explain this…..a shit government with corrupt criminal shit ministers.

    S&P warns of another Barbados downgrade
    Added by Barbados Today on September 27, 2017.
    Saved under Business, Local News, Slider
    4
    The international ratings agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P) today warned of the possibility of another downgrade of Barbados over the next 12 months, while calling on the Freundel Stuart administration to take the necessary steps to lower the country’s high fiscal deficit, strengthen its external liquidity, and reverse its low level of international reserves.

    The warning came in a statement in which S&P announced that it was lowering its long-term local currency sovereign credit rating on the island to ‘CCC’ from ‘CCC+’.

    At the same time, S&P has affirmed its long-term foreign currency sovereign rating at ‘CCC+.However, the outlook on both long-term ratings is negative.The national deficit is currently estimated at six per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) with Government’s overall debt said to be in the order of 140 per cent of GDP — one of the highest debt levels among Latin American and Caribbean.

    The level of reserves have also fallen well below the precautionary benchmark of 12 weeks, at roughly nine weeks of cover with S&P raising concern that the island may not be able to avoid a devaluation of its currency which pegged at two to one against the US dollar.”In our opinion, monetary financing to the central government is at odds with sustaining Barbados’ currency peg to the dollar, and it significantly curtails the central bank’s ability to act as a lender of last resort in the financial system,” the ratings agency warned, adding that “low inflation is a reflection of global conditions rather than effective monetary policy execution given the fixed exchange-rate regime”.


  39. I remember Crusoe…other people will be investigating all the corruption now, people they cant kill.


  40. WWC et al.,

    Last judgement is coming. The days start getting darker. A huge shadow with a moustache is over the island.

    Long-term local currency sovereign credit now CCC with NEGATIVE outlook. The figure from St. Michael North-West would reply: There is still CC, C, RD and SD before D. There is also the rest of the alphabete. And some decimals as well.

    Indeed, we need to REMOVE Lord Nelson. We need gallows, St. Andrew´s cross and iron maiden instead.

    Goddess Bim, Holy Bussa, Barrow, Stede Bonnet, Lord Nelson in Davy Jones´s locker, hear our cries!

    Those who sugarcoat the mess will soon lose their ring finger to the machete of the impoverished masses.


  41. S&P: “The NIS has already exceeded its own prudential limits on government paper,
    and the growth rate of financing provided by the NIS has already decreased.”

    meaning: NIS is bankrupt

    S&P: “the government also announced it’s considering a debt
    liability management exercise on local currency debt held by the NIS”

    meaning: pension cuts up to 50%

    S&P: ” transaction only focused on intragovernmental debt is not a default
    under our criteria. But it highlights the extent of fiscal stress, and if it’s
    extended to private-sector creditors, it would likely constitute a default
    under our criteria”

    meaning: They cheat like Greece. No formal default, but economic default ALREADY there.


  42. Sinckler will soom blame the opposition that they launched the latest S&P report. Wait and see!

    As the Chief Justice blamed the CCJ for his personal fault to reorganise the local judiciary.

    It seems to be the very DNA of the local elite that they ALWAYS blame somebody else for their personal failure. They were born with sugar in their a…, dine with golden spoons and suck the taxpayer.


  43. Tron…the minister`s real worries are yet to come..

    ….. the strategt backfired, nothing but trouble in paradise…lol

    ….but Fruendel dont care, he is in Canada, for now.


  44. While I am wary of smudging the landscape, preferring to leave the main points at top of mind here, I do think this point is worth a query, but bear in mind it is not mind to distract nor throw the discussion into a ‘conspiracy’ theme.

    What I am about to say focuses on known fact and thus should be taken as matter of fact comment and not a supposition.

    Everyone is well aware that many police, public officers and private enterprise leaders are member of the Freemasons.

    From that, surely it is concerning that there are allegations of corruption from multiple sources, such as the charges of one above and per the WikiLeaks on Sean Reece’s investigations.

    Is it a coincidence that there are allegations of corruption among public officers and private enterpriser leaders and many public officers are known Freemasons??

    Is there a link?


  45. Re phrase above ”Is it a coincidence that there are allegations of corruption among public officers and as noted it is known that many public officers are Freemasons, together with private enterprise persons??


  46. We get stronger every day. Worrell already joined our ranks, speaking out the truth, at least at the very end. The official media is taking up our parols.

    More will follow. A storm is rising. Our predictions might be shocking, but they are mere shadows of the dark future.

    We do not expect any reward. We want to turn the tide for the common good.


  47. Crusoe,

    When the rats in their cage run out of food, they start to kill each other. The island is so bankrupt, there is simply not enough to share for all members of said societies. So they start an infight.


  48. none of that will help them when they are dragged off the island for money laundering and other crimes, other jurisdictions dont give one or two hoots about all that simmy dimmy devil worshipping nonsense…

    the pitchfork they buried at Garrison is already working overtime…lol

    I would prefer that any action towards change be through the ballot (hence my point for the UN to monitor the 2018 election) and by assured and reasoned measures. I am against any other ways that would bring change.

    Those are not fruitful.


  50. Slavery in Barbados was so mild that it created the most docile and subservient Blacks in the Caribbean.

    The masters castrated us with their kindness.

    A sample of the masters’ benevolence (Bussa revolution)
    One white civilian and one black soldier were killed during the fighting. Compared to this, 50 enslaved people died in battle and 70 were executed in the field. Another 300 were taken to Bridgetown for trial, of which 144 were executed and 132 sent away to another island.

    Note that twenty-four of the 300 not accounted for.


  51. That means last weekend when the ad was still in the newspaper that Griffith was a shoe in for the job? I can’t remember reading anywhere in the ad that “A qualified candidate has been identified” but they were just following protocol by advertising the position but Griffith must have been polishing his brass from day 1.

    @David
    The Gov’t had to wait until the legalities from the former COP had been fully ventilated before they could appoint Griffith otherwise they may have been stuck with two COPs.

      I now see why Bushie keep making fun at you. Stop answering questions with such authority, especially when you are wrong. Government could have appointed a commissioner when the substantive Commissioner (Dottin) was approaching retirement age. Check the Constitution.

      When a public officer is approaching retirement age, he is required to take all his outstanding vacation leave so that there would be no leave outstanding at the actual date of retirement. In Dottin’s case, he would have accumulated in excess of 24 weeks leave since he would have been accumulating leave while he was on leave.

      According to section 114.(2) of the Constitution an appointment could have been made at that point. There was no reason to wait, especially since Dottin could not have resumed his post.

      I don’t know of any precedent but the law is clear.

  52. Caswell, why don’t you conduct some training workshops for the unions’ negotiators so that they would stop disrupting the country for every little thing.


    • Alien

      Trust me when I tell you that these union leaders already know the procedures and the rules. These disruptions are designed to show power and attract new membership. BWU claims that it has 25,000 members but their accounts show that they are only collecting dues from approximately 13,000 members.

      Are you suggesting that the CBC. Should pay an increase if the employee is at the max of the scale or that the BSTU should ignore if a newly appointed employee is abusing a longstanding employee etc?


  53. RAYSIDE CONSTRUCTION LIMITED — Please help me to understand what’s really going on in Barbados with these employers. I work for Rayside Construction. They are sending home people all the time and telling them that the company has no money. People working month on and month off.

    Rayside is heavily indebted to the VAT Office, the National Insurance Scheme and Inland Revenue. Rayside is facing major challenges in servicing their bank loans and overdraft facilities. Right now we have only about 150 employees or less. People that went home since last year didn’t get a cent yet.

    But what has the staff upset is that the people at the top like Terrance Thornhill, Natalie John and Denise Taitt living big. Natalie spent a week at a hotel with her family and then went overseas and bring in barrels with things to sell to the staff at Rayside. She could be heard in the office boasting about her trip to Dubai and how much money she spent, and many months Rayside’s staff are getting paid late. This woman is such a liar, so much so that she had a man in the company with her husband, and the man dumped her because of her lies.

    Herbert Gittens, I want you to be very careful because Natalie and Denise talk about you real bad and say you can’t get the work done, but don’t worry, Karma is a bitch. Leave Natalie to her friend Denise, who will continue talking about her when the horns from the husband are too much to bear.

    More to come on these three who are robbing the company blind for their own purposes. Barbados is full of thieves and dishonest people.


  54. Simple Simon: “Ah yes Sean Reece, his grandmother Mrs. Bishop, the late Girl Guide Commissioner was the sister of Grantley Adams.”

    The Adams and Bishops are branches of the same family. Judge Bishop, who lived in Howells X Road, was Grantley Adams’ nephew.
    More importantly, I have already warned about the development of paramilitary policing and our civil servants reporting to US personnel.
    We must make it illegal for any civil servants, police or military to socialise with foreign diplomats without permission. This is how low-level spies work.


  55. Crooked Mark White and Sgt Pinder previously of Barbados Fraud Squad Unit

    What the local public needs to know is that the Barbados Fraud Squad Unit has taken on this persona personally with a number of both past and present officers in that department engaged in many criminal activities including receiving bribes, drug trafficking, falsified police statements and Court Disclosure documents, beatings and planting evidence.

    Crooked Mark White and Sgt Pinder who was transferred to a different department are in a class of their own. Not only did Sgt Pinder assist with covering for her former boss CROOKED Mark White with bounced checks he made to a local business as exposed by former co-workers she has also taken bribes from criminal drug traffickers to present False Statements and Court Disclosures in both the Magistrate and High Courts.

    This woman is a nasty nasty piece of work who is also a thief who have stolen from many suspects.

    Sgt Pinder i believe is now working in the Special Branch after being transferred. She needs to be in Dodds Prison in St. Philip like crooked gold tooth Mark White for theft, preparing false Statements and Court Disclosure documents, accepting bribes and criminal conspiracy.

    These are just two however the Barbados public also needs to be aware that the Barbados Fraud Squad Unit has many past and current detectives who are rotten to the core and have perfected fraud and taken criminal conspiracy to a new level.
