Barbados Bar Association Not Helping Ordinary Barbadians

The blogmaster has been observing more and more cases of ‘ordinary’ Barbadians seeking justice for inequities meted out to them with the system failing them when they attempt to seek redress. Whether it is the Office of Public Counsel, FTC, FSC, Ombudsman and the others.

In the case of the Justin and Brunetta McIntosh CV1399/2008 matter this is another example – this time – it is the Barbados Bar Association.

The BU family would have read about the plight of the McIntoshes in the BU blog posted in July of 2013.

Not a surprise to the blogmaster, we have had to return to the matter last week:

For the avoidance of doubt to address if the plaintiffs in this matter exhausted the recommended channel (s). See response from the Barbados Bar Association.

Mcintosh_Bar

When the McIntoshes received the Bill of Cost from attorney Bernadette Callender with 7 days to pay, They referred the matter to the then acting Registrar to solicit advice. After discussing the matter with them, the Registrar telephoned Bernadette Callender in the presence of the plaintiffs.

In summary: Bernadette Callender said if the McIntoshes withdrew the decision to dismiss her as the standing attorney, she would continue the case. Because the McIntoshes wanted to see the matter completed, they agreed.

However, after the new Registrar’s Conveyance was put in place and signed off by the McIntoshes, they received word from Bernadette Callender that she will not be going any further with the case.

The blog of last week highlighted that Bernadette Callender  continues to holds the McIntoshes’ file until she is paid.

Negotiations were made with her to receive money from CIBC FCIB for her services in connection with the foreclosure suit. After the sale of the property, she would be paid monies due after the taxation matter. She consented and promised the standing attorney she would make copies of the files and turn over the originals. The McIntoshes gave consent and she was paid for her services where the foreclosure is concerned. She delivered the conveyance to CIBC FCIB. After that Callender insisted on full payment and advised that she would file for taxation, explaining, that she would be the best person to file because she was the attorney that dealt with the suit.

The blogmaster was advised since 2015 Bernadette Callender mentioned filing for taxation but it was never done.

Bernadette Callender take notice – BARBADOS UNDERGROUND will continue to recycle this matter until there is resolution. The longer it remains outstanding the more familiar Google and other Internet search engines will be made familiar with YOUR name and deed.

THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT.

    As Bajan Free Party has said this is just the tip of the iceberg

    There are over 100,000 of these cases involving hundreds of lawyers.

    The fact is that the Bar Association is a mechanism that acts like a sandpit that looks like a garden of Roses.

    It is like a venus fly trap which ostensibly has the name of an entity to protect the interest of the public but all it is, is a fraternity of crooks that stroke the unsuspecting public to submit their documentation WHICH IS THEN SHARED WITH THE COMPLICIT ATTORNEY OR ATTORNEYS

    They then go back to their respective lairs AND ADJUST THEIR RECORDS AND HIDE THE CROOKEDNESS

    It is indeed a veritable gangland or thieves and whores who masquerade as officers of the court and upholders of the Law.

    This is why de ole man and me son have been advocating for a different mechanism that will exist offshore Barbados.

    What that virtual compendium will do is permit bajans to upload all of their files on the matter from what they sent to the lawyers, registrar, bar association EVERY SHY$E, so that when a new RH potential victim comes to search our platform YOU WILL SEE DE FVCKERS NAMES LISTED THERE!!!

    That will be the end of every one of the lowlifes (Jackie Stewart’s favourite word) spree.

    Wunna does like doing the same shy$e over and over again and wondering why the shy$e don’t change

    De ole man doan do dat shy$e talk

    Get busy changing de shy$e by action!!!

    Again…Barrow said it because he knew, no justice for black bajans in the judiciary, not when the Barbados Bar Association was started as a criminal syndicate in the 1940s….the dirty hands of those involved back then had one goal and one goal only, steal as much as they can , whatever money, land etc that was generated by the very existence of the majority population and hide it offshore..

    ,.. it has been nearly 8 decades that these dead demons put those crimes against their own people in motion….and the black criminal syndicate of lawyers, ministers, insurance executives….etc…still exists today…with crooked lying minorities like the williams brothers, bjerkham, tempro, all wannabe slavemasters and their imps like maloney et al as the VEHICLES OF THEFT.,still robbing a 3rd generation of black children…

    ….they only stopped offshoring everything they find to steal…,since panama papers, paradise papers annd ICIJ made their debut…in other words, they are scared to offshore anything post panama papers….but all their paper trails from the 1940s are there to follow…and they cannot remove them…oh what a thing….

    They cant work overtime enuff to erase any of it…

    thefts were uncovered after Whigham repeatedly failed to distribute more than $900,000 that one of his clients held in a trust for a relative. After the relative died in 2011, the money was supposed to be given to the Shriners Hospital for Children and a schizophrenia research foundation.

    Why then this reactive stance of

    It is for this reason lawyers and other professionals are able to exist and persist in Barbados

    Because we allow them to!!!

    You should be here with instances under which this matter was done to you!!

    If Mr Kammie Holder says it, the people and the sheeple would know that it is true.

    This is what stupid leaders do without fail…and mostly, this is the outcome…Barbados’ leadership needs a MAJOR SHAKEUP……if Mia and her bar association crooks dares to steal a dime of that 11 billion dollars of black people’s savings in the banks and credit unions to fund the criminal syndicate of them and their minority masters ……..they should all be dragged off the island in handcuffs..

    “Yahya Jammeh, the former president of the Gambia, orchestrated the theft of almost $1bn (£760m) from his country before his flight into exile two years ago, investigative reporters have alleged.

    The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) said it had reviewed thousands of leaked documents that detailed how government funds had been looted over 22 years.

    Jammeh, a former military officer who seized power in a coup in 1994, fled into exile in early 2017 after losing an election.

    In December 2017, the Trump administration placed Jammeh under US sanctions for his “long history of engaging in serious human rights abuses and corruption”, including a torture and assassination squad called the Junglers that targeted Jammeh’s critics and political opponents.

    The following year the state department announced that Jammeh and his family were barred from the United States.

    Jeggan Grey-Johnson, a communications officer at the African office of the Open Society Foundation, told the OCCRP that Jammeh “ran the country like an organised crime syndicate”, but said his abuses had been largely ignored by the international community because of the small size of the west African state.

    At the time it originally placed him under sanctions, the US treasury also accused Jammeh of having “directed the unlawful withdrawal” of at least $50m from his own country.”

    If it were Artaxerxes writing this point about the Crime Minister ‘s recent launch of this scam about people’s savings he might, in his inimitable style, after giving us financial data, have said something thought provoking like

    “…how is this scam, which involves a new angle for the drawdown on people’s banking and credit union savings, ANY DIFFERENT FROM JUSTIN ROBINSONS’ THEFT OF NIS FUNDS?…”

    And he might have proceeded to dissect this scam from the empirical evidence that he would have collected

    WARU has a different style, she finds some gems, at times, and will then speaks to what she sees as a systemic abuse by a sector in the society like the lawyers, the politicians or the plantocracy, showing a pattern of teifing across generations of poochlickers and docile Bajans.

    Lynette Holder, Mugabe Senator, so to speak, is the genesis of this scam on people savings

    This is the second round of CLICO or the recent Mugabe bond scam

    “INVEST $5000 in Special High Investment Trust Equity Savings annuities and the government of Barbados under Mugabe will cover you by allowing you a tax credit equal to your investment over three years

    @WSkinner, are you saying here (Once we continue to be greatly influenced by American culture, rugged individualism would become the national norm) that INDIVIDUALISM (rugged or otherwise) is so ineradicably joined as an AMER8CAN culture trait!

    Fah trute!

    Considering that those who eons ago ambitiously exploded the development of that nation by exploring the mineral wealth and by pillaging the lands and taking the lives of the natives were originally Brits and French…and further considering that then after killing each other in civil strife they have forged an impressive UNITED semi-autonomous set of states that if stood up in full autonomy some would be measured as great nations in the world… It’s reasonable to say … 1) INDIVIDUALISM is NO MORE inherent to an American than a Brit or Frenchie and 2) the American has a strong desire for COLLECTIVE power!

    If we continue to mimic American culture we could be a tituliarly and practically a strong unified bunch of yahoos (minor pun intended), libertarians, and all sorts of others ALSO…

    We knock the Americans as if there is any other operational country/system that has proved significantly superior.

    We pretend that everything fell apart between 2008-2018. This is rubbished political nonsense! Since the late sixties, we warned that our culture was being threatened . We continued to copy American corporate culture. We saw how gas stations became mini marts, driving all the small community shops and mini marts out of business. Note that these enterprises were black owned. This made black gas station owners direct competition of black mini marts. Divide and rule.
    Education the same thing. All the black private owned schools have gone out of business . I think the only one surviving is the Metropolitan.
    We educated lawyers who then fitted into the new corporate culture. They now represent off shore businesses who enjoy massive tax breaks etc. This piece here about the Bar Association looking out for the citizens is fit for the dustbin. It’s grounded not in nationalism but in fragile attempts to perpetuate the system disguised as some concern for the poor.
    We go to construction:Cuss Maloney while in opposition but make sure he continues to prosper when the government changes.
    Example:
    Coverly was becoming a ghost town. Extravagant prices made the sophisticated pigeon coops unattractive.
    In steps a medical school. Dozens of black people own houses with rooms and apartments in the Cave Hill area near UWI. Many small businesses . Rather than set up the university in an area that will create economic wealth for those blacks,the same people who cuss Maloney, made sure Coverly reaped the benefits. Then they talk about economic enfranchisement.
    This rugged political individualism is the hallmark of the BLPDLP. They made sure that it became the dominant social behavior.
    They benefit- the same collective lawyer class.
    Peace.
