Miss Ram and Karma Meet

The issue is, how can the Court decide, there is NO SERIOUS ISSUE to be heard? The government only comes into play because they were the acquirers, and a politician, Dale Marshall, spoke to the matter. When this story broke in March, I fully expected a court challenge. The news it has been declined is beyond belief. It is one thing to hear the case and have a result, another entirely to find “no serious issue to be tried”.

Northern Observer

It is fair to disclose our hand on the subject of Miss Ram. The way she has done business in Barbados over the years does not recommend her to this blogmaster. She has generously donated to both major political parties i.e. BLP and DLP. Her training as a lawyer allowed her to grease the system for the benefit of all.

However it will not prevent the BU household from creating blog space to invite opinions on the matter at hand. Government has moved full steam ahead to acquire the property known as Liquidation Centre owned by Ms Ram on Lower Bay Street to facilitate the construction of the Hyatt Hotel.

For years she has operated businesses in Barbados with questionable working working conditions. Hundreds of words can be posted about Furniture Limited. There is an instant in 2012 it failed a health inspection and was forced to suspend operations.

For years Ms Ram was allowed by authorities to operate a hardware cum retail Store on Lower Broad Street. It was a common sight to observe forklifts, 10 wheelers and other heavy duty vehicles loading and offloading items to support the business. The fact that it was an inconvenience to pedestrians and vehicular traffic in the area seemed inconsequential.

The preamble notwithstanding it is important government treats with citizens fairly. The issue at hand is that government and Ms Ram have been unable to reach an agreement on a price for the property where the Liquidation Centre is located. The inability of the parties to reach agreement has prevented the mobilization of the Hyatt project. She sought injunctive relief from the High Court last weekend and to quote a local press report:

In response, the owners sought injunctive relief through the High Court, which dismissed the application on the basis that there was no serious issue to be tried. The company then sought a stay of execution, which the court also rejected.

Some are arguing that government has no bone in the fight between Ms Ram and the Hyatt developer. The Land Acquisition Act  Section 5 (1) 3 is very clear:

Nothing in this section shall be deemed to prevent the acquisitions of lands for public purposes by private treaty.

However the other side to the debate is that the Lower Bay Street area has been included in government’s redevelopment plan and others businesses previously located on the strip north of the Liquidation Centre have vacated.

As it stands the police and government have taken control of the property. The country waits to see if the warehouse will be razed or whether Ms Ram will do what she has been adept at through then years; litigation.

    Let’s circle back to the beginning, I don’t want to speak for “NO” but he was expressing the view that the provision of the law which the Gov’t exercised to obtain Ms. Ram’s property was too broad and the law itself was outdated. He then brought up the fact that he advised some clients who were investigating whether to set up business/residence locally theimplications of the law re buggery as some of the principals were openly gay and he felt that may imperil their residency at some point if they run afoul of some authority. It was at this point I jumped in and wrote that the Gov’t wasn’t interested in reforming any laws etc.

    Now “Enuff” makes his appearance and wrote in effect “bollocks to that statement” the Gov’t established a “Law Reform Commission” and referred to an article picturing David Simmonds and Dale Marshall whispering bon mots in each other’s ear. Thankfully the article pointed out that Simmons was previously Atty General and Chief Justice; Marshall was the former Atty General who is now enjoying another kick of the can after a hiatus of 10 years. They have both held senior legal positions in Barbados for decades, and little or nothing was done about the historic laws under their tenure why should we believe different?

    Heritage body: ‘developers misled us’
    Peter Stevens

    The Government’s advisor on the preservation of places of historic, architectural and archaeological interest has withdrawn support for construction of the Hyatt Hotel Resort based on its latest design.

    An upset President of the Barbados National Trust (BNT) Peter Stevens is accusing the developers of misleading the trust into believing that once additional land space was acquired by Government the height and overall scale of the hotel would be reduced.

    Stevens said the trust had therefore agreed to the construction of the revised Hyatt based on those objectives, only now to find his organisation had been “railroaded”.

    He said the BNT, which also advises Government on places of ecological importance or natural beauty, is also retracting an earlier statement of support for the demolition of the Liquidation Centre – a listed building – to provide an additional 30,000 square feet of land.

    “The trust now feels we have been in a sense, railroaded into believing this was going to produce a lower height. Instead, the main structure, the bulk of it has been broken into four towers. One of those towers is taller than the previous Centric Hyatt,

    In the last week, newspapers report that the government has made two assaults on the concept of the citizen’s right to property. The first assault was the attempt to pass the Antiquities Bill and the second, the declaration to compulsory acquire the land of one person so as to benefit another citizen. The situation with the Antiquities Bill is extremely disturbing. The Senate raised many cogent questions about the bill which were accepted by the Government senators. It strikes me odd that Minister Lashley, who is an attorney, could not recognise the constitutional issues raised by Senator Newton and neither could any of the other 29 MP’s (i.e.both BLP and DLP) when the bill was passed in the lower house. That the bill (in identical form) was first presented by the previous BLP administration is testimony to the lack of any philosophical mooring by BOTH political parties to defend and act in accordance with the Constitution or any other publicly stated set of values in the interest of the common good other than expediency,appeal to the lowest denominator and laziness.

    To reinforce my disquiet, today’s newspapers report that the Government intends to compulsory acquire part of the property of one individual to make available to another private interest. This is an unsettling use of the State’s power to compulsory acquire property. To my knowledge, such power has been exercised to the direct benefit of the public i.e to allow the building of a school, heath centre, police station, roads, public housing etc. That this power is now to be exercised to the benefit of a privately operated company is a most curious development.

    However, laudable the intentions, the words “thin edge of the wedge” comes to mind.

    Your statement is not entirely true! If you had listened carefully to the debates you would heard Ms M.A. Mottley in her contribution raising concerns about the constitutional implications of the bill in its current reading. She also expressed concern about the “mechanics” of certain aspect of the legislation. Queries were raised about the storage and safe custody of the acquired relics and the human and technical resources required to ensure the successful implementation of the provisions and regulations of the legislation.

  • @ Sargeant,

    In 1978 I told a friend that Furniture Ltd. was a fire trap and should have a sprinkler system.

    Fire protection is not a serious issue in Barbados.

  • Isnt a property assessment required to give the owner a fair market value of whether the property is to be demolished or not which will required thorough inspection of the building and land
    With certainty govt knew of those problems but yet let employees worked under those dangerous conditions for more than 15 months
    To hear AG belt out those. alarming conditions at the liquidation makes for wonderment

  • David are we talking about the liquidation centre or not
    Did not the AG said the building had violations
    My question therefore goes to you
    during the acquisition process isnt it standard procedure for govt to offer a purchasing price to the buyer
    Isnt it standard procedure that the buyer gives a official price to the buyer after certain requirements are made subject to inspection
    What is there to know
    Except that u now is beginning to figure that govt either skirt the law and give the owner a self serving assessment
    Or govt knew of the infractions after a thorough inspection was done and allowed Mrs. Ram to conduct business as usual

    Do not dance to the tune of this undemocratic government. The background noise about the unsanitary conditions and fire risk at Ms Ram’s property may all be true, and would fit in with a cultural pattern, but that is not the substantive issue. The real issue is the abuse of process by the government in obtaining the property.
    Nonsense about environmental standards are post factum justifications for the government’s illegal actions. The Liquidation Centre was there during 14 years of Arthur’s rule, ten years of Thompson/Stuart and a year of Mottley. Was it inspected during that period by the health or fire departments? If so, what happened to those reports? How long ago was it we had the Tudor Street fire?
    Smoke and mirrors. The Chinese man playing with chop sticks. No doubt Ms Moe’s CBC will soon do a programme saying how wonderful Hyatt will be.
    I am told that Indians and Chinese are buying up Baxters Road. When are we going to shout stop?

  • I remember Donville closing down that disgusting Ram place and having it cleaned and in no time at all it was filthy again…because yall know what a dirty rat she has been for decades and still allowed her to operate AGAIN…when she should have been closed down completely at that time…both governments and yardfowls could only think of her brown envelopes, but ah hope she got it all on audio.

    Baxters Road has been turning into another repulsive looking dump for years, buildings falling down…horrible conditions…Billie the Goat and all the other things in the parliament left the city in a deplorable state …to rot and fall down.

    It’s either get rid of it or everything will fall to the ground..that is what they all wanted, for the majority population to own nothing, they are just spectators and tax generators…who aare told to go buy inferior quality goods from crooks and sometimes the crooks come out themselves to tell the population to buy bajan, but it is a notorious Trini Syrian telling them that…

  • How do you know what is nonsense? Did Miss Ram agree to the acquisition all to agreeing to payout. You really need to stop and breathe.

  • David did u see the agrements
    All know that this govt since May t govt has been using stealth undemocratic measures to gain their required outcome
    The govt minister yesterday stated in his PR comments that the Liquidation centre was unsuitable for business because of violations
    My question still stands to govt
    When did u know
    If there was a thorough inspection done to the property during the acquisition process as required by law and for public record
    If govt knowning of these violations allowed the liquidation centre to remain opened for business
    The long short lays like a double pronged fork sharpened at both ends
    For in the eventuality govt knew within the acquisition process of these violations and never gave thought or concern for the well being of the employees and customer
    It therefore serves purpose and with interest and with cause to say that this present govt only cares for self by any means necessary
