Donville Inniss GUILTY as Charged

Millar told the court that in August 2015, she attended a meeting with former chief executive officer (CEO) of ICBL Ingrid Innes and former senior vice-president with responsibility for business development and marketing Alex Tasker.

Following that meeting, she said Innes instructed her to make “an urgent payment” of a referral bonus to Inniss.

She said she was uncomfortable with the request made by Innes as he was “politically exposed” and she enquired if she Innes had cleared such a transaction with the company’s chairman John Wight, to which Innes responded, “It’s fine”.

  • Glad that other social media platforms in the past few days have seen the relevancy in Mia deceptive games as she tries desperately to keep all focus an attention on herself not withstanding her futile and lame accusations of pointing a finger at the USA along with het dastardly action of trying to build her legacy off the back of the Rgt.

  • “I was aware that the PM referred to him as “uncle Errol”; now it is “grandfather”? Wow!!”

    Mr. Codrington

    I was unaware of any close relationship between Barrow and Mottley, until I heard McClean mentioned it on “Brass Tacks.” And to be honest, I really don’t care.

    However, I never mentioned Mottley referred to Barrow as “grandfather,” and if you’re attributing McClean’s comment to me, then, you’re being dishonest.

    It’s the PM who said in the Nation a few days ago that Barrow was her grandfather and the one who was there to greet her when she came home from school etc. I think that she was just saying that her two natural grandfathers had passed and Barrow, as a close family friend filled the role.
    It’s only the cool aid drinkers and fanatical party loyalists on BU who cuss people on behalf of the Duopoly.
    As I have stated , the Duopoly has already discussed who will be sacrificed in the next election to ensure that it survives. So all those cool aid drinkers on BU who believe that the Duopoly really cares about them are sadly mistaken. The Duopoly cares only about itself .

    RE: “It’s the PM who said in the Nation a few days ago that Barrow was her grandfather and the one who was there to greet her when she came home from school etc. I think that she was just saying that her two natural grandfathers had passed and Barrow, as a close family friend filled the role.”

    I heard when McClean mentioned that to David Ellis on the Monday, January 21, 2020 edition of “Brass Tacks,”….. and it was the reason why I used the word, “adoptive.”

    RE: “It’s only the cool aid drinkers and fanatical party loyalists on BU who cuss people on behalf of the Duopoly.”

    You are correct. If we had not known better, reading the silly “rants and raves” of Mariposa would have given us the impression Barrow and Mottley were “natural enemies.”

    However, Mr. Skinner, I hope you also noticed when the focus is on one of the duopoly’s members, “how the fanatical party loyalist” would relentlessly defend him/her….. then, they would leave the forum for a day or two to strategize, and return to raise other issues to distract from the substantive topic.

    Look how successful Mariposa has been in achieving her objective of distracting from Donville Inniss and turning the focus to her favourite “hobby-horse,” Mia Mottley.

  • According to the US Department of Justice, the cases

    United States v. Alex Tasker, Court Docket Number: 18-CR-00134,
    United States v. Ingrid Innes, Court Docket Number: 18-CR-00134

    ………. were filed on March 15, 2018, in the Eastern District of New York…… and announced on January 18, 2019.

    On Monday, January 28, 2019, the Department of Justice, Office of Public Affairs, issued the following Press Release:

    Former Chief Executive Officer and Senior Vice President of Barbadian Insurance Company Charged with Laundering Bribes to Former Minister of Industry of Barbados

    The former chief executive officer and senior vice president of Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited (ICBL), a Barbados-based insurance company, were charged in an indictment unsealed on Jan. 18, with laundering bribes to the former Minister of Industry of Barbados in exchange for his assistance in securing government contracts for ICBL.

    Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donoghue of the Eastern District of New York and Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. of the FBI’s New York Field Office made the announcement.

    Ingrid Innes, 63, a citizen of Canada, and Alex Tasker, 58, a citizen of Barbados, were charged with one count of conspiracy to launder money and two counts of money laundering in an indictment returned in Aug. 22, 2018, by a federal grand jury sitting in Brooklyn, New York. The former Minister of Industry of Barbados, Donville Inniss, 52, a U.S. legal permanent resident who resided in Tampa, Florida, and Barbados, was charged with the same crimes in an indictment unsealed on Aug. 6, 2018, and was also charged as a co-defendant of Innes and Tasker in the superseding indictment.

    The indictment alleges that in 2015 and 2016, Innes, then the chief executive officer of ICBL, and Tasker, then a senior vice president of ICBL, took part in a scheme to launder into the United States approximately $36,000 in bribes that they paid to Inniss, who at the time was a member of the Parliament of Barbados and the Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development of Barbados. In exchange for the bribes, Inniss allegedly leveraged his positon as the Minister of Industry to enable ICBL to obtain two government contracts. According to the allegations, Inniss arranged to receive the bribes through a U.S. bank account in the name of a dental company with an address in Elmont, New York, in order to conceal the scheme.

    The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

    ICBL voluntarily self-disclosed the case and received a declination under the FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy. ICBL disgorged $93,940.19 in illicit profits that it earned from the scheme.

    The FBI’s New York Field Office and International Corruption Squad is investigating the case. In 2015, the FBI formed International Corruption Squads across the country to address national and international implications of foreign corruption.

    What amuses me to no end is that one of these cool aid drinkers was advising Mottley to discredit Barrow. Mottley probably read it and decided to put this cool aid drinker in his place by bigging up Barrow; placing a plaque in his honor and informing the nation that he was her “ grandfather”.
    In other words she was telling them to ; “ watch muh” and stop embarrassing me on BU because at the end of the day cockroach has no right at fowl cock dance.
