Senator Caswell Franklyn Responds to Facebook Video Accusing Ministers George Payne and Dale Marshall of Fraud

[Barbados Underground] The following was shared by Senator Caswell Franklyn in response to the following question –

@Senator

 

 

 

Is there any light you can shed on the lady and her mother posting videos to Facebook accusing Payne and Marshall of some unscrupulous action?

“David, Blogmaster

I know more than most about the situation which led to these two people defaming Marshall and Payne on Facebook.

This matter arose out of the sale of land of the late Ermine Atwell. She was the widow of Melvin Atwell, attorney-at-law. The two people making the allegations about Marshall and Payne are Ermine’s sister and niece.

Ermine was a recluse who lived alone with her dog, Zena. For a number of years Ermine would call me every Sunday, unless I was out of the island or there was a problem with Cable and Wireless. We would talk about every conceivable topic, one of which was her sister’s and Niece’s efforts to get their hands on Ermine’s land.

According to Ermine’s version, the sister Ieft Barbados in the sixties and did not look back, not even to attend their father’s funeral in 1975. Then out of a clear blue sky the sister returned to Barbados, and only made contact with Ermine by way of a lawsuit to get portion of Ermine’s land that formerly belonged to their father. The sister lost the case.

Ermine was willing to help her sister if she had asked but was hurt and angry that the sister took her to court. As a result, she vowed to me that the sister would get nothing from her and as far as I know, Ermine was taking steps to make sure that the sister would get nothing.

Ermine died suddenly and I don’t know how far she had gotten in disposing her property. I know that Ermine believed in George Payne and Rawle Eastmond but had chosen George to deal with her legal matters.

I did not comment before for two reasons: I was not asked; and Marshall and Payne should be able to take care of themselves.”

    i am unaware that an investigation has identified the movement/possession of that 3mil or how much it was as the proceeds of criminal conduct. i would be grateful if you could point me to such an investigation.

    “i am unaware that an investigation has identified the movement/possession of that 3mil or how much it was as the proceeds of criminal conduct. i would be grateful if you could point me to such an investigation.”

    Like the CoP intimated in the case of the unearthing of Pornville’s dirty laundry, there has been no complainant so how you expect there would be investigation into one of their own and the party’s former bankroller?

    That is why the miller is daily persecuting Senator Caswell to raise the tax issue as a matter of urgent public concern.

    For as in the case of Al Capone if you cannot get at the bad guys one ‘legal’ way you could catch them using the other ‘legal’ tax evasion net.

    If the $3.3 million posing as either Dr. Jekyll legal fees or as gratuity payments due to Mr. Hyde the pariah Greenverbs, is that clean- and like Caesar’s wife alimony payments ought to be above public suspicion- then it should have turned up as lily white income declared in some party’s income tax return.

    Let us see how ‘honestly’ smart you are by agreeing with the miller in prosecuting this probable tax evasion case which clearly does not require a complainant by the name of James Green(e).

  • @ Watchman, Agreed. We must find out what the will says if there was indeed a will. I mean the will of the father or mother of Ermine and her sister in the England. If there was indeed a will stating that it was family land, it would be illegal for Ermine to make a will or sell property that was not entirely hers without agreement of the other party or parties.
    Also as I previously stated it would be interesting to find out who received the proceeds of the sale.

    @ John the Quaker

    You do the Senator an injustice by the statements that you are promoting.

    I will explain

    There are 2 scenarios here.

    One where the ladies are lying in which case the two lawyers are safe (UNTIL ANOTHER MATTER SURFACES)

    Or where what they are saying is the Truth (which the ole man is inclined to believe given the first and only video I saw and its non professional elements. But de ole man ent Scotland Yard and is better known as a conspiracy theorist)

    Even if the second obtains a careful examination of the Senator’s comments solely say that he knew one of the parties in the matter and would have spoken to her from time to time and he provided some perspective on those chats up to the time that party died.

    He also makes a definitive statement as to the disposition of the deceased person with regard to other family members whom I understand are the parties on Facebook.

    He however definitively States that HE DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING FUTHER ON THE STATUS OF THE LEGAL MATTER or what the deceased had advanced regarding such AT THE TIME OF HER DEATH.

    The SENATOR in fact does not endorse nor disclaim the lawyers Pain nor Teets.

    NOR DOES HE DISCLAIM THE CLAIMS OF THE TWO LADIES

    In fact de ole man would humbly observe that his statement has triggered a desirable outcome namely the submission of one of the documents in question regarding this matter.

    Now the conspiracist will get technical and delve into matters that only a conspiracy theorist can.

    The documents provided are “truthfully presented” a term that de ole man has been saying about the lady that I saw (I don’t use Facebook so i ent see the other one)

    By truthfully presented on means that her submissions have just the right amount of amateurishNess to affirm their genuineness. Look at the background of the documents.

    Okay thst aside let me comment on the green highlighter and the mispelt? word fraudalant?

    The documents supplied suggest the following to the conspiracist

    1.This is a campaign that is mounted by two parties who are genuine in their interests I.e. to secure this property

    2.there is a third party who is pushing these two persons on this social campaign

    3.The circumstances of the handover of the property is suspect BUT

    4.THESE PARTIES MAY NOT like others of us HAVE THE INTERCEDING DOCUMENTATION

    5.They may have attempted or still be in the process of bringing a case against Pain and Teets but BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE INTERCEDING DOCUMENTS LKKE SOME OF US HAVE their campaign has to be fought on innuendo.

    6.An INTERCEDING document of value would be a will and a letter that while not necessarily the last will and testament, would be adequate to show a chain of command that negates rather casts a shadow of doubt on the validity of the conveyance.

    7.ERGO THE HIGHLIGHTER AND THE WORD FRAUDULENT and the fact that their advisor told them to redact the names of the buyers since said persons may not be privy to the projected skullduggery

    8.It would suggest to the Conspiracist that WHILE SOME INTERMEDIARY skullduggery might have occurred, these two ladies AIDED BY THE THIRD PARTY, probably a DLP operative, are relying on innuendo and public sentiment to coerce a settlement AT BEST.

    9.It is a classic attempt to impute guilt EVEN IN THE ABSENCE OF REAL EVIDENCE RATHER CAST ASPERSIONS ON TWO MEN WHOSE REPUTATIONS ARE NOT IN THE BEST OF STANDING.

    Why one fellow has been called a teif by his fellow parliamentarian and de other is just a nasty liar and pretender.

    But Mia going find that out soon enough

    10.Teets and Pain looking to serve them defamation notices assuredly

    11.Mariposa you don’t have to exfoliate heheheh (the Honourable Blogmaster is not going give you up for your effort to undermine the BLP administration by this cheap shot hehdheh)

    This IMPUTATION WILL NOT BRING DOWN THE BLP.

    THE INTERNECINE BATTLES AND THE MEMBERS NATURAL PENCHANT TO TEIF WILL.

    FOLLOW THE MONEY LIKE THE FUN HAS and you will catch one of them out.

    NOT CAN YOU WILL.

    So “no” we don’t know whether or not she was a member of the BLP. And we certainly don’t know whether she was loyal or not, as today’s loyalty can be tomorrow’s disdain.

    @ WARU & Mariposa

    There is another side to this equation that I would beg your indulgence for just a few moments.

    I shall dub it “The Fifth Element”

    And I will give you two examples of how this Fifth Element phenomenon works and you and others may comment on what I will remark on

    Party A is a supplier of GOODS. Party B contacts Party A and contracts with Party A to buy these goods for let us say $10,000

    When the Goods arrive Party A realizes that the goods have parts that he wants and proceeds to cannibalize said goods for his own establishment and then delivers the modified goods to Party B.

    Party B on seeing what A has done pays A for the goods, IN FULL, less the cost of the item line that A removed/stole $10,000 – $2,000.

    But hold your horses!

    Party A’s father is a judge and A complains to daddy and they proceed to put B in court, proceeds to litigate against B, plot that the matter is heard by a judge that Party A’s father is friends with. (Does this sound familiar?)

    Mysteriously, no documents/summons are ever delivered to Party B concerning the litigation (sounds familiar??) and equally concerning Party A winds a judgement against Party B IN THEIR ABSENCE (AGAIN, does this sound familiar?)

    Now mind you Party B has paid a lawyer to represent them in ccourt and that lawyer takes $1500 and does nothing. And when the matter is reported to the Bar Association THEY DO NOTHING!!

    You understanding what the plight of these poor bajans living overseas is yet?

    But hold your horses just a little longer.

    Item 2. Party A is a small business person with the customary profile “ideas but no money”.

    Party A approached the central bank in their jurisdiction which provides a guarantee for SMEs

    http://www.centralbank.org.bb/financing-schemes/financing-schemes/credit-guarantee-scheme-for-businesses

    This facility is suited to the type company that Party A represents.

    In brief, that utility states/ed that A’s indebtedness is only 10% (it was 10% at that time) of the value of the loan approved, in the event of a default.

    Bank B MUST pay Central Bank a quarterly premium to maintain the CB guarantee but the facility was a new vehicle and Bank B was not familiar with it and did not know about the premium.

    Party A, in good faith, secures said facility from Bank B and continues to pay Bank B, 30% of indebtedness.

    When circumstances force Party A out of business, Bank B which has not paid the premium, litigates against Party A and makes sure to get a particular judge that is biased towards their interest.

    IN FACT, even when said honourable Judge is shown the payments Party A made, and the facility, and is told that the Bank B has not paid its premum the Judge ignores all of that and rules a judgement against Party A.

    So are you starting to comprehend the extent of this so called justice that Barbadian Courts mete out to its citizens?

    Here is an excerpt from Transparency International

    “… The Global Corruption Report (GCR) is one of Transparency International’s flagship publications, bringing the expertise of the anti‐corruption movement to bear on a specific corruption issue. Most recent reports have focused on corruption in climate change, the private sector, water and the judiciary.

    The report highlights cutting edge qualitative and quantitative research, gathers knowledge on lessons learnt and showcases innovative tools. In doing so, it enhances our understanding of the dynamics of corruption and seeks to provide practical and proven solutions to improve governance and accountability….”

    Tell me how said entity can arrive at a corruption index that reflects the true state of affairs of Barbadians?

    How can they detect that Bank B, having failed to pay the premium that the Central Bank requires, has secretly asked for, and secured the Judge of their choice to ensure that Judgement is rendered against Party A, NOTWITHSTANDING 30% being paid NOR FACT THAT BANK B did not pay premium!!

    Now what are the commonalities herein described?

    It does not really matter if Party A is Saint Theresa because DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ARE IN BARBADOS, the so called “Justice System” in Barbados, is rigged against the poor man, and THE BUDDY SYSTEM WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU.

    Because like these two WHAT DID ENUFF OF LORENZO DUO call them “gutter snipes”, we the poor people DO NOT HAVE A VOICE and we are treated like the scum of the earth while these thieves like PAIN AND TEETS continue to rape us.

    I will not mention a third situation where collusion between Party A’s Lawyer and Bank B’s lawyers subverted Party A’s matter since Party A’s lawyer, BECAUSE HE OWES Bank B, colluded to “sell Party A down the river”.

    “Who do you call….Ghost busters…remember that tune?

    This is why it is critical that poor people use the ONLY tools we have, the ubiquitous technology to campaign against these parties CAUSE THE COURTS ARE MOSTLY A WASTE OF TIME…
