Goddard’s Yacht Ecstasy Busted!

Chris Rogers (l) Walter Prescod (c) Charles Herbert (r)

 

The news that approximately 3 million dollars worth of illegal drugs was discovered on a boat owned by Goddards Enterprises – a successful and respected international company domiciled in Barbados – continues to be the talk of the town. A few high profile names are reported to be assisting the police force read Charles Herbert the Chairman of Goddards Enterprises and Chris Rogers a non executive member who were reported to be on the boat when the interdiction was made by Barbados Customs Officers.

Information coming from the police about the progress of investigation has been slow as one would expect when prominent individuals are involved. Then add high profile lawyer Andrew Pilgrim to the mix. The blogmaster joins many expressing an interest in who will be charged and incarcerated for the crime. The tangential story is that there is an intense lobby with the charge in government to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The blogmaster ask commenters to be smart when posting comments. On behalf of the BU household we appeal to all those out there to continue to tip off the authorities so that we can arrest the scourge of drugs, guns and other illegal activity pouring into our little island. Feel free to email BU also with tips by completing the Contact List that will be forwarded confidentially to the blogmaster.

BU’s Featured image is Charles Herbert, Chairman of Goddards (l) and Chris Rogers, non executive board member (r).

  • Leroy Parris was CEO I think or General Manager or some such at CLICO, DT was Clico’s attorney…how do you expect to pay employees at that level pittance…and despite their huge monthly salaries , they still stole and found themselves in all types of mischief….explain that..

    it is the lower level employees get pittance salaries.

    @ The Honourable Blogmaster 2 items languish in the suspense corridors

    A picture rather a stoopid cartoon and an item that explains why the amount of the drug haul was mysteriously decreased. from $ 3 million or is that %4.34 Million if the US$ 1K per pound that The Luminary Jeff Cumberbatch spoke of is applied to the 267 lbs that were discovered euphemism for snitched on.

    all that may be true but how do you so prove in the present circumstances. all those men are Barbadians with substantial ties in the community. the surety will have to pay the amount if they do not turn up. the reporting conditions go some way in ensuring that they remain on island and are accounted for. the likelihood to interfere with witnesses or evidence is unknown if not remote. and 500k in drugs despite the hype is not majorly serious under the circumstances- at least not enough to deny bail

    in short, as it stands, it would be unreasonable for a Court to deny bail

  • I have to remember not to post at anywhere or anytime when we are close to the multiples of 75 which is the maximum that one of BU ‘s pages hold.

    Especially when the other two of the BU BORG are on duty because the items get held and placed on those pages AFTER THE PAGE HAS ELAPSED.

    So that was while it cannot be said dat de ole man is being moderated de items jes aint being posted in response to the other blogs that elicited the thought

    Note carefully that The OLD David of Barbados Underground DOES NOT DO THIS GAME but the other two are puerile and as supported of the BLP they have adopted this strategy as a way to prove their allegiance.

    But that is ok lady and gent, it is wunna family ting and de ole man going abide by wunna rules.

    Try therefore to hide these incidents of teifs and Drug dealers who are close buddies of the Prime Minister of Barbados from the eyes of 280,000 people.

    Cause wunna is David Copperfield and can make the Statue of Liberty disappear too

  • Horace,

    Out of over 10000 minutes a week an accused on bail is asked to go to a local police and report in – no more than a minute – once a week. That does not guarantee the person would be available the following week. Interfering with witnesses and evidence depends on the balance of probabilities ie the likelihood that enough irrefutable evidence would be uncovered to send the accused to prison for a long time.
    Th bail depends on the value of the contraband and the value of the accused to the operation.

    If 52 is relatively young.

    At what age does middle age occur?

    And at what age does old age occur?

    The oldest person in Barbados is 111.

    Fellows can we agree now that 50+ is well MIDDLE AGED?

    And that most Bajans are dead, dead, dead before the age of 80.

This is how it usually works but I am not suggesting that this is how it worked in Prescod’s case: when the traffickers get caught a small guy, like Prescod, would take the fall for the bossman.”

    @ Hal, what do you not understand about the liberty of the subject being paramount? The denial off bail is an exception to the rule and not the rule itself. That is why the prosecutor objects. He must adduce reasons why the accused is not likely to return to answer the charge. Incidentally, How many cases on the constitutionality of the denial of bail have you ever read?.

  • Jeff,
    Precisely. Only in exceptional circumstances should bail be withheld ie if there is a likelihood of interfering with evidence or witnesses, or absconding. In a recent case, I believe the accused would not abscond, however I think there is a very high probability of interfering with evidence/witnesses.

  • What has shocked me most is just how far certain people are willing to go to ‘get back’ at a man. I knew that they were ruthless, but even then I underestimated just how had they are.

    Barbadians made a decision recently that we already knew saved the country, but it is now dawning on me just how bad things could have been.

    Burnham? No, Gairy more like. A few vipers in sheep’s clothing.

    For the international readers and agencies reading this. I can assure you that this has all the signs of Herbert being framed. The only thing that he has done in the recent past to cause such vindictiveness is to come out very vocally against the previous government. Whomever would seem fit to frame him, we can only guess.

    Barbados now has a government that is worthy of calling itself for the people.

    Barbadians, be very careful about what you accept, many things on the face of it are not what they are.

    To the current Government, be very careful, watch your moves and assess those who are working for you carefully. It does seem that there are vipers out there.

    To those who are relishing this with glee. Grow up and realise that there are bigger issues at stake here.

    Your (significant) prejudices are clouding your thoughts.

    And for those who would seek to capitalize on this for their own gain, no, it does not make you any more electable than you were a few months ago. The last eight years the Barbados economy has undergone a mauling at your hands.

    Get lost.

  • @ Hal, what do you not understand about the liberty of the subject being paramount?

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

    I know from my years in civil court (20 plus) that if a bail hearing comes up, it takes precedence over any scheduled civil matters.

    … regardless of who the accused may be or what the civil matter is about!!

    The first time of many times I saw it happen while waiting to be heard I was told that … by the whole lawyer … and I understood it instinctively.

    Mr. Prescod has been granted bail.

    Had he been refused, he could have gone to the High Court and he would have been heard before any scheduled matter was heard.

    That’s what I saw repeatedly … people whose bail had been refused by a magistrate appearing in the High Court.

    I seem to remember seeing one or two in the Court of Appeal too!!

    I am only half a lawyer but that is my understanding.

    If the man is innocent then I hope he recovers his good name.
    If he is guilty then I hope he is punished
    But we should wait, hope the lawnis followed and see what the outcome is.
