Chairman of Goddards Enterprises Asserts His Innocence

[Barbados Underground]  Yes Jeff, Charles Herbert faces a monumental task, not least because he has already been convicted in the court of public opinion. The social meaning of the case has become about the history of race relations in Barbados, so although the court case is supposed to consider the evidence dispassionately, I am not certain that a jury will lack bias

    It doesn’t matter what college Tron went to.

    In a 29:1 democracy, the constitution only establishes a guideline for government action, but no strict boundary, since the constitution could be changed at any time and at will. So if the Attorney General directs the DPP, she must follow, even if it goes beyond the Attorney General’s constitutional right to direct her.

    I even go so far as to say that the election in May 2018 was an act of popular revolution against the post-colonial order as established in 1966. Such a revolution sweeps away the existing legal order. Therefore, only those constitutional provisions are binding which the government has confirmed as valid through practical action. All other constitutional provisions are suspended.

    Me……. unhappy????

    Far from it, my friend.

    I’m EXREMELY happy…….. business is going well……

    I decided to take this week off. Yesterday, I went liming with some friends……. had a wonderful time……. today I relaxed to watch a few movies and re-runs…… and post a few contributions to BU.

    May even visit SVG for “Vincy Mas” this weekend…….

    Unlike you, my life DOES NOT REVOLVE around Barbados Underground…….. it goes way beyond this forum.

    It’s clear you’re not only UNHAPPY……. you’re one SAD, ANGRY, LONELY, MISERABLE, DELUSIONAL old woman, who does not have anything better to do with her life than to visit the halls of BU to REPEATEDLY spew your racist rants and hate filled diatribe on a DAILY BASIS…….. from as early as 2:00 AM.

    You CANNOT engage in a debate WITHOUT resorting to INSULTS. Why? Because you can’t MANAGE your EMOTIONS and since everyone seems to ANNOY you, you’re SHORT-TEMPERED and VERY EASILY STRESSED.

    That’s why you MUST respond to every comment….. you MUST “have the last word.” And as you continue to respond, you become “progressively angrier.”

    PERHAPS the reason why you are that way is because you can’t identify and control your emotions EFFECTIVELY. ANGER and SADNESS are emotions that should give you a message. What they are telling you is you’re not SATIFIED with your PERSONAL SITUATION.

    You adore in spreading rumors, which is a sign of passive-aggressive behaviour.

    BU gives you some semblance of importance. It’s a place where you use anonymity to express your illusions of grandeur.

    You’re PREDICTABLE…………..when you’re not “copy and pasting” IRRELEVANT articles to BU articles or posting Jackie Stewart videos…… you believe that REPEATING the SAME shiite in EVERY contribution is your way of achieving some delusional, self perceived objective.

    deal with what is NEGATIVELY IMPACTING YOUR PEOPLE….and keeping the poor helpless and unable to defend themselves from having their human rights violated..

    the RACISM……instead of pretending it don’t exist..

    the APARTHEID…instead of pretending it don’t exist..

    the human rights abuses against THE MAJORITY BLACK POPULATION by black governments and CRIMINAL MINORITIES……..instead of pretending it don’t exist..

    the THEFTS of lands and properties from the elderly and their beneficiaries…instead of pretending it don’t exist…

    in all my years on BU you have not ONCE ADDRESSED any of those issues, but only post old articles and PRETEND there are no other problems…except for what bloggers POST….steuppss..

    living in a PRETEND WORLD…never solved any problems..certainly won’t solve all those serious problems the majority population experience…

    certainly will not make the requisite changes…to help the island move into the 21st CENTURY…..

    there are people working hard behind the scenes to make sure these crimes are not only exposed…but the criminals brought to justice…ya should try helping….instead of writing essays of pure SHITE…

    If I asked you to present ONE of your contributions in which you EXPOSED any crimes against Barbadians and IDENTIFY the perpetrators……… you CAN’T.

    This is how you “deal with what is NEGATIVELY IMPACTING YOUR PEOPLE.”

    On a DAILY BASIS……… IRRESPECTIVE of the TOPIC posted to BU for discussion, you post the SAME OLD PREDICTABLE, MEANINGLESS, GENERALIZED RHETORICAL SHIITE that lacks substance.

    ………. “Dismantle the existing legislation, institutions AND structures that ALLOWS THE PRACTICE OF RACISM AND APARTHEID against the Black majority…..”

    ……… Your contributions as it relates to “the THEFTS of lands and properties from the elderly and their beneficiaries” is POSTING Jackie Stewart videos.

    If this is your idea of EXPOSING wrongs in Barbados……. REPEATING the SAME, old tired predictable rhetoric…. I believe you should think again.

    You have to satisfy his sexual needs, make his bed, breakfast, cook his food, take care of his children, perform household duties.

    so…on the one hand one is to accept the DPP role is enshrined in the constitution, and on the next, they do not pursue a case because a firm is a supplier to the GoB? Barbados has an oversupply of many things…..sunshine, warmth, rum, cabinet ministers, sh!!te talkers and insurance companies. One of the easiest things to replace in Bim is an insurance policy.

    “Mottley blames Gov’t for boy’s death
    Article by
    Barbados Today Published on
    June 29, 2015
    Opposition Leader Mia Mottley is placing blame for the death of an 11-year-old boy in a traffic accident at the entrance to the Villages at Coverley last Friday, squarely at the feet of Government.

    Addressing a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) public meeting in Codrington Hill, St Michael last night, immediately opposite the former home of BLP icon and National Hero, the late Sir Grantley Adams, Mottley said the accident occurred because Government had abdicated its responsibility and duty to the public.

    Abijah Holder died on the spot when the car in which he was travelling on his way home from school graduation, reportedly struck a sign post on the road that leads into the Christ Church development and overturned. The car was driven by his mother.

    Mottley said fault for the accident had to be placed on the driveway to the Villages at Coverley, which, she alleged, illegally extended onto the road reserve, which is state property, but Government had been negligent in enforcing its removal.

    “What I need to tell you is that the Chief Town Planner advised . . . that they needed to remove that obstruction from the road reserve, because both the Chief Town Planner and the Chief Technical Officer were against it,” the BLP leader told the crowd.

    She said more than three years had passed since notification was given . . . and the morning that it was to be removed, a call came to the MTW Department and told them, ‘do not use the MTW equipment to move nothing at Coverley’,” the BLP leader charged.

    “A young boy, full of promise, is dead tonight,” Mottley said.

    “This Government has abdicated the responsibility to protect the public interest. If this were the life of the son of somebody prominent in this society, Barbados would have catch afire about that thing in the road. But it was a Rasta boy. He was the son of a black woman, a Rasta woman.

    “How can two Barbadoses emerge in this country again from people who should know better?” she asked.

    The BLP leader further claimed that the developer was being allowed a free hand with building standards.

    “The Environmental Protection Department is yet today to approve those houses,” she said, reporting that the EPD had ruled that windows for the buildings were too small, causing the houses to be hot.

    Despite this, she said, houses were being sold.

    Mottley also raised questions about the deal with Government through which the developer acquired the land. She said Government leased the developer five acres of state land for 99 years at $100 a year for the housing project.

    “And you got a bank and a clinic and restaurants and a gas station paying them rent up there, and the taxpayers land get give way,” she claimed.”

    Hmmmm…….

    Once again, YOU’RE LYING.

    Anyone who contributes to or reads this forum could attest to the fact that, over the years I, have POSTED several contributions to BU, ADDRESSING matters relating to corruption, racism and other issues that negatively affect Barbados and the Barbadians.

    A perusal of BU’s “Lawyers in the News,” or articles on CLICO, NHC, Transport Board, BWA, SSA, the CAHILL scam, etc, one would see my contributions. I wrote on issues such as Lisa Marshall from whose personal file information was leaked to BU by political operatives, to imply she was a thief, “just because” she spoke to the press concerning non-payment of her severance as promised on three different occasions……. and the plight of the former retrenched Beautify Barbados employees that had to wait over 3 years before receiving their severance payments……….and the former retrenched NCC employees, the ERT and Hal Gollop……….. how about the over-charging and double invoicing by Trans-Tech Inc., that has been recently been revealed by the Auditor General’s 2018 Report.

    I could go on and on……..but this is not what BU is about, it is NOT about YOU or ME…… or “one up-manship,”….. or about repeating the SAME shiite to DIFFERENT issues, over and over and over……or making believe one has inside information……..

    …………it’s about informing the public about pertinent issues and discussing them in a manner the established news media DOES NOT ALLOW.

    But, then again, you have mentioned in this forum on several occasions that you SCROLL PASS certain contributions, INCLUDING mine.

    So, I’m a bit puzzled……..

    What the heck……. I’m done with this…… it isn’t worth it.

  • Incompetence.

    Just three days after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) urged police officers to be thorough in their investigations, a man accused of having almost 300 pounds of cannabis at his residence has walked free because of a lack of evidence.
    The case against Wayne Dexter Reid was dismissed by Magistrate Douglas Frederick yesterday in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, after he upheld a no-case submission brought by the accused’s attorney-at-law Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim.
    Reid had been charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking 282.7 pounds of cannabis on April 26, 2016.
    The illegal drugs had a street value of over $500 000.
    In his no-case submission, Pilgrim argued that the evidence produced did not link his client to the drugs.
    “The police claimed they went at the house of the accused armed with a warrant to search, claimed they found the door ajar, entered the home and claimed they found drugs inside.
    “Where police go to execute a warrant they ought to execute it in the presence of somebody. Even if the accused is not there, some other party should be there to acknowledge that the police came and did whatever they did and found whatever, they found,” he maintained.
    “If that is not the case, then police can go into anybody’s home when no one is there and claim that they find any and everything in your absence and you have no defence to it whatsoever.”
    The attorney-at-law said it would be tantamount to impropriety pursuant to Section 116 of the Evidence Act and it would mean that the probative value of that evidence would be outweighed by the prejudicial value.
    After hearing Pilgrim’s submission, the magistrate agreed that the Crown had not built a strong enough case against the accused.
    The court heard that police executed a search warrant at a residence where Reid was staying, but he was not home at the time.
    They found the door slightly ajar and smelled a strong odor suspected to be cannabis emanating from the residence.
    Police entered the house and after finding no one at home they conducted a search where they found the drugs contained in 16 packages in a bathtub.
    Acting Assistant Superintendent Trevor Blackman prosecuted the case.
    But in examining the evidence, the magistrate said the Crown was seeking to rely solely on the fact that the accused occupied the premises.
    Frederick said the fact that the door was found ajar by police could be interpreted that other persons had access to the house.
    The magistrate also pointed to the fact that while the accused’s brother said he lived at the house, when he was questioned, the accused said the house belonged to a female, but he had “some things” there.
    However, Frederick said one of the most glaring errors was the fact that police never questioned the owner of the residence about whether the drugs belonged to her.
    “The police were too hasty in the execution of their warrant,” the magistrate acknowledged.
    Frederick said the Crown simply did not have enough evidence as the accused had denied any knowledge of the drugs, there was no confession and there was no evidence linking Reid to the drugs.
    “The Crown does not have enough evidence to establish a prima facie case on the balance of probability,” the magistrate added.
    On Monday while addressing a course at the Regional Security System, DPP Queen’s Counsel Donna Babb-Agard told the participants that they needed to submit “a well-prepared police file upon which prosecutors can rely”.(Quote)
