Peter Odle Under the Gun

A dispute involving Irish investor Alan McIntosh and other parties with local hotelier Peter Odle continues to be a source of embarrassment for Barbadians and makes public what ordinary Barbadians have been complaining about for many years. We have a court system that is broken and a ‘buddy system’ that protects the favoured in society. In local parlance, two Barbadoses.

The two political parties come and the two political parties go and the problem remains.

See other blogs posted on a dispute which continues to expose our moribund court system and to dent our reputation as a domicile fit and proper to conduct international business. This imbroglio is occurring as Prime Minister Mia Mottley has been promoting the Barbados Welcome Stamp – Work Remotely in Barbados initiative in the international media. It should not be forgotten that attracting foreign direct investment is important to the economic planners to ensure we can honour foreign commitments.

Alan McIntosh dubbed by Barbados Underground as that pesky Irish investor has written a second letter to the Prime Minister of Barbados which encapsulates in summary detail the dysfunctional governance setup and toxic business ethos prevailing in Barbados. The letter separates the issues for the Prime Minister’s under the headings – Court Delay Tactics, Corporate Governance and Abuse of Personal Relationships to Circumvent Creditors.

It is clear from reading the letter that Attorney General Dale Marshall is also aware of the ongoing dispute that threatens to compromise Barbados’ economic recovery effort. In an Affidavit filed with the Barbados court, Abagi Ekoku who is a shareholder in Sandy Bay Holdings Inc (SBHI) named as First Defendant in the pending court matter, explains how a repurchase agreement with Richard Bradford and Peter Odle has gone south and precipitated litigious action.

Clause 23 extracted from the Affidavit sworn by Agagi Ekoku:

On Monday the 10th day of February, 2020, pursuant legal advice which I received from my Attorney-at-Law, I wrote to the Attorney General of Barbados, the Hon. D. Marshall, Q.C., MP. I requested acknowledgement of my aforementioned letter from the office of the Attorney General and received the acknowledgement on the same date from Hazel Mederick, the executive secretary to the Attorney General. To date, I have not received a response to my letter. True copies of the email/letter dated 10th day of February, 2020 and the acknowledgment of the same date are hereto attached and marked “AE3”.

Extracted from the Affidavit of Abagi Ekoku

It pains the blogmaster no end each time a blog of this type is posted which shines a light at the underbelly of Barbados. The upside is that it is being done with the aim of making Barbados a better country for ALL.

Barbadians should be reminded of an Irish saying – May the enemies of Ireland never meet a friend..

  • In the black art of the law there is something called a pre action letter or protocol or something like that.

    I suspect the letter to the AG was such a something like that.

    If so the AG is on notice that Mr. Mcintosh intends to take the matter further and will be suing the GOB through the office of the AG.

    Letter to Ms Mockley may be one last attempt to avoid litigation against the GOB in a court that has its problems.

    The AG represents the GOB and Ms. Mockley is a part of the GOB.

    In theory, the Judiciary is independent of the executive

    “The Judiciary of Barbados is an independent branch of the Barbadian government, subject only to the Barbadian Constitution. It is headed by the Chief Justice of Barbados.[1] Barbados is a common law jurisdiction, in which precedents from English law and British Commonwealth tradition may be taken into account.[2]”

    “In the 1990s the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (of the United Kingdom), ruled that Barbados’ Constitution was clear with respect to the death penalty.[22] However, it ruled that to carry out such sentences it required that Barbados and other Caribbean Islands carry out trials at a quicker pace.[23] In response to this verdict, the Barbados government announced that the country would be leaving the jurisdiction of the Privy Council and would further consider becoming a republic.[24] Since then, calls have continued to be made by members of the local legal profession ridiculing the length of time which court cases in Barbados take to be fully adjudicated.[25] Other criticism has been that the court process was appearing to be breaking down.[26][27][28][3]

    Since Barbados left the jurisdiction of the JCPC, similar sentiments have been expressed and re-iterated in 2010 by the Caribbean Court of Justice which Barbados replaced the JCPC with.[25]

    In 2011 Owen Arthur, the Leader of the Opposition announced that the BLP would not support [4],[5] the ruling party’s goals to amend Barbadian law to allow for the appointment of Marston Gibson as the next Chief Justice of Barbados.[6][7] Questions surround the fact that Mr. Gibson has not maintained the requisite 15 years of practice as an attorney-at-law in Barbados.[8][9] The governing DLP maintains that it plans to proceed as planned by amending that stipulation from the Barbados Supreme Court Judicature Act.[29][10]”

  • Concerns have been expressed that the Judges of the Court would be paid by governments which can exert decisive informal pressure on them to deliver judgements favourable to this or that government. In order to pre-empt this eventuality and fund the Caribbean Court of Justice in perpetuity, a Trust Fund of US $100 million has been established, so as to enable the expenditures of the Court to be financed by income from the Fund. In this way, the expenditures of the Court, including the remuneration of the Judges, is not dependent on the disposition of governments. As a consequence, the CCJ is the only integration court of its kind financially independent of the largesse of governments and free from their administrative control. The Caribbean Court of Justice Trust Fund is administered by a Board of Trustees drawn from regional entities.

    “Manhattan subway train derails after laughing saboteur puts metal clamps on tracks: police sources

    A Manhattan subway train derailed Sunday morning. The uptown A train was entering the 14th St./Eighth Ave. station in the West Village at 8:17 a.m. when it ran into debris, officials said. (@DayDayLavine)

    A Manhattan subway train derailed Sunday morning after a laughing homeless saboteur put metal clamps on the roadbed, police sources said.

    The uptown A train was entering the 14th St./Eighth Ave. station in the West Village at 8:17 a.m. when it ran into the metal tie plates, which are normally used to secure tracks to the roadbed, officials said.

    Three of the subway cars derailed, with at least one wheel leaving the tracks, and sideswiped several stanchions separating the track beds.

    The homeless man found the tie plates on a pile of construction materials at the 14th St. station, police sources said. He took the plates and put them on the tracks before the train came into the station.

    Commuters saw the 30-year-old suspect laughing at his accomplishment, sources said. Good Samaritans held him at the station until cops took him into custody and brought him to Transit District 2 headquarters for questioning. No charges were immediately filed.

    The train ended up stuck about 100 feet into the Eighth Ave. tunnel. First responders evacuated about 30 people from the train.

    Yes I agree with you that under this cloud the appointment is definately in need of review. I also see a second minister mentioned now in Mr Jordan, who the PM can call as a “character witness”in terms of gaining a bit more background shall we say, on ones business practices seeing the work affiliation between those involved.

    To be fair to the PM we can not assume that she could know everything about the indvidual’s business practices. After all no one can know things not in the public domain can they? Now that she has access to Minister Jordan who she can call to Ilaro Court for a fire side chat and enlightenment, I am sure based on the cloud over this matter, that she will recall the appointment to that board or any future ones, until the matter is heard by the courts. After all lets be honest, a minister’s oath to serve the state would far outweigh their personal friendship with anyone wouldnt it?

    It happens all over the world in developed countries and maybe even other republics. You will hear Mr X has been asked to step down, or Mr Y has stepped down due to a matter involving a pretty young thing. Why even here I recall a Mr H stepped down from chairmanship of a company when charged with the importation of ” vegetable matter ,” only returning to the post once the charges were dismissed and he was not involved in future court proceedings.

    I say dont blame the PM for the appointment to the gentleman of chairman. All that happened is that she was not aware of the cloud surrounding him. I am sure after she calls Minister Jordan to the big house for de fire side chat, she will see things differently. After all remember she ran on a ticket of transparency and accountability, surely that must trump ( no pun intended) the need to reward party loyalty?

    Could dear Hal if the boss lady didnt know about other practices prior to the party reward, you cant fault her for giving the faithful a little pick can you? Thing is now that she can have “a fire side chat of enlightenment” with a fellow minister we will have to see what happens next.

    Wunna just remember dem got nuff young people looking on. The same one we preach to about there being no reward unless you do the right thing. Dont educate them and then treat them like fools.

    Who licenses lawyers to practice?

    In the case of engineers, a fee is paid in January of every year to the Registrar of the Supreme Court and a license is issued and signed by the Registrar of the Supreme Court.

    I would guess the same process is followed for doctors and lawyers so it would be the Registrar of the Supreme Court who issues the licenses to doctors and lawyers.

    There will be an act regulating the practice of law and medicine.

    “Why is this leak different?
    There have been a number of big leaks of financial information in recent years, including:

    2017 Paradise Papers – A huge batch of leaked documents from an offshore legal service provider Appleby and corporate services provider Estera. The two operated together under the Appleby name until Estera became independent in 2016. They revealed the offshore financial dealings of politicians, celebrities and business leaders

    2016 Panama Papers – Leaked documents from the law firm Mossack Fonseca showed more about how wealthy people were using offshore tax regimes to their benefit

    2015 Swiss Leaks – Documents from HSBC’s Swiss private bank showed how it was using the country’s banking secrecy laws to help clients avoid paying tax

    2014 LuxLeaks contained documents from the accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers showing that big companies were using tax deals in Luxembourg to reduce the amount they were having to pay

    The FinCEN papers are different because they are not just documents from one or two companies – they come from a number of banks.

    They highlight a range of potentially suspicious activity involving companies and individuals and also raise questions about why the banks which had noticed this activity did not always act on their concerns.

    FinCEN said the leak could impact on US national security, compromise investigations, and threaten the safety of institutions and individuals who file the reports.

    But last week it announced proposals to overhaul its anti-money laundering programmes.

    The UK has also unveiled plans to reform its register of company information to clamp down on fraud and money laundering.”

A statement would be refreshing and reassuring.

  • Too often I see these things happening various companies and businesses , I’ve had my own negative experiences , for example Blades courier services , run by Alex Blades is a fraudulent operation , I am highly dissatisfied with the service . My requests for service are usually met with sexual harassment amongst other profanities .
