Donville Inniss Sitting Alone in the Dock

Submitted by Caleb Pilgrim

Dear Blogmaster:

Re Inniss, a reasonable person might acquaint himself with any relevant rules of engagement.   Such rules will inevitably vary from jurisdiction (e.g Barbados)  to jurisdiction (e.g Florida or New York).   But, familiarity with them can be instructive if not edifying.  It can even save the inattentive and the unwary aggravation in terms of time, money, emotional anxiety and even personal liberty.

Donville’s case is important, not only because it represents a stunning reversal of fortune, a reckoning for him personally, as well as any possible harm to Barbados and its image abroad.   

It is also important to Caribbean politicians as a whole, not just those a previous P.M described as a bunch of “wild boys”, or those who would kill and feast on “the fatted calf”.  (Some may recall that the U.S once sought the extradition of a certain Sir. Lynden Pindling – the Bahamas – to face trial In the U.S.  Mr. Bouterse’s – Suriname – problems may also come to mind.   Others routinely excoriate Dr. Gonsalves – St. Vincent – in this blog).  

But, certainly everyone knows that the U.S, despite the fact that it has only 4% to 5% of the world’s population, leads the world in terms of the number of prisoners with some 2.3 million incarcerated (25 %).  In Barbadian vernacular this is a sort oBig “Dodds”.

The late Judge John Sirica, a Watergate Judge, was remembered as having said that if a jury had voted to convict President Nixon, he (Sirica) would have sent him to jail.   The Reader will therefore understand why President Ford hastily pardoned Nixon.

Even as of the time of this writing, there are at least a few Prosecutors (e.g James, Vance, Racine et al) patiently waiting in plain view to rendezvous with Trump just after high noon come January 20, 2021.  He (Trump) is well aware of this fact.   Hence all the increased chatter about pardons for his henchmen, political supporters, family and friends, and even pardoning himself).   

(See: NY Prosecutor Hires Forensic Accountants as Criminal Investigation Into Trump Organization Escalates

Re Inniss’s prospects, a lawyer once related to me how he had had a case before the Eastern District Court of New York (E.D.N.Y).  An elderly West Indian client passed.  Her Executor, following certain stereotypes, retained NY counsel to settle the Estate.  A problem arose when NY counsel sold a brown stone building and simply forgot to pay the proceeds to the Estate.  (As an aside, it is gratifying to read of the new Chief Justice, Cheltenham, cautioning new members of the Bar to refrain from borrowing their clients’ funds). Proceedings ensued thereafter.  

The matter came before the E.D.N.Y Chief Judge, the late David Trager, Judge in the Crown Heights case where Lemrick Nelson was accused of murdering a Rabbinical student, Yankel Rosenbaum, presumably in retaliation for the murder of a black child, Gavin Cato.   

My lawyer friend advised me that his matter only resolved after some intense legal skirmishing and the lawyer was persuaded to disgorge the proceeds.   His impression was that the EDNY, at least in his opinion, constituted a hostile work environment.  

Thus, Mr. Inniss, metaphorically, finds himself like a man with a glock cocked against his temple, as he sits in anticipation of sentencing scheduled for Jan 23, 2021(?).

Mr. Inniss apparently fired his trial counsel, for whatever reason(s).  He may not have agreed with his lawyers.  He may now pursue his right to appeal and draw out the process.   

However, claims such as “ineffective assistance of counsel” have typically been rejected in the overwhelming majority of cases (1 in 5, according to some sources).   Similarly, the Judge’s Jury Charge will most likely have followed standard instructions in similar such cases.  It might even be argued that Inniss, the Former International Business Minister, did not have a jury of his peers.   Yet, none of these arguments may prevail on appeal.   Hopefully, Inniss, Tasker and/or any possible corruptocrat will emerge sadder, wiser and chastened, by experience.

Happy New Year, y’all!y

    The blog master is putting up these articles to detract from the fact that the MARIJUNA business is being given to the WHITE PEOPLE and BLACK RASTAS have been CUT COMPLETLY OUT.

    Even though they have suffered most at the hands of the legal system. They lives have been destroyed , they have been sent to Jail while the WHITE PEOPLE have been protected by officialdom from prosecution all their lives.

    A WHITE person has never been sent to Jail because of the MARIJUANA trade which now stands on the cusp of taking off.

    A BLACK PERSON can not catch a break in Barbados, the Black Politicians make sure of that.

    How many of them would choose this lifestyle if they were not feeling hopeless?

    I have known Donville since we were teenagers. He has always been nice to me and I cannot rejoice in his downfall but if he did this thing then he has only himself to blame.

    You all are extremely happy that a BLACK MAN form Barbados IS BEING PROSECUTED BY A white govt. in America.

    It would put BLACK PEOPLE in their places, Much to your delight, at the bottom of the heap. I am sure that we all remember the WHITE AMERICAN woman who knocked and killed a young fellow in the UK She fled to America to avoid prosecution and to this day the American have refused to prosecute or return her to face justice.

    No doubt the OREOS in Barbados think that the Americans have done the right thing.

    There is no American on this God green Earth who the American Govt. would deport to another Country any part of the World to face local justice in the Country.

    As I said some of us BLACK PEOPLE in Barbados are salivating at the sentence of a BLACK MAN at the hands of a WHITE GOVT.in America.

Even President Trump got involved and he refused to do any thing. That is at the highest level. You cant want it better than that.

    My response: Nobody

    And is he being protected by the American Govt.????
    My response: Since he went voluntarily to the United States, and since 2 years later he is still apparently in good health I take it to mean that the Americans have protected him so far. Please remember neither ordinary Bajans nor the current BLP government, nor the former DLP government forced Donville to go to the United States. Donville was NOT extradited. Donville went to the United States because that is where he wanted to be. Donville jumped voluntarily into the lion’s den.

    Now a man talking about “inconsistencies”..

    You all don’t get it. Wunna so blind????This is an attack on THE SOVENTEY AND INDEPENDENCE of the State of Barbados. It does not matter if he is “B” or “D”. The Americans will never extradite one American to any where on Earth. If an American man here in Barbados killed 12 people , and the man got arrested by the Royal Barbados Police Force for murder to make an appearance before a local Magistrate, The American would send 20 gun ships down here to set him free.

    Errol Walton Barrow said that we are friends of many but Satellites of none. How is it that Barbados is surrendering its sovereignty and Independence to the USA????

    They will not do it for us. No matter how many treaties are signed.

    There is another case which attacks our Sovereignty before the Courts of Barbados. Where a Barbadian who facing deportation to the US. I still remember the WHITE AMERICAN WOMAN who the American Govt. refuses to depot to the UK to face Justice for a murder she committed. . But are demanding the deportation of a Barbadian citizen to America.

    If I were the Magistrate or Judge, I would tell them where to push the deportation papers.

    You are right. The problem is that it is easier to get a cheap laugh on BU than to discuss serious matters. The matter of extradition should be a reciprocal one, which I am sure is written in to all extradition agreements.
    Or we can do what some countries do (Germany, Israel, Russia ??) if the alleged offence is also an offence in Barbados, then the requesting party can bring the case in Barbados and the evidence would be acceptable in the local jurisdiction.
    There is a lot wrong with the Donville case, whatever we may think about Donville, but instead of having a serious discussion, we drift in to a party political argument. Now here is an issue that should concern our constitutional experts.
    We have been badly damaged by our educational system.

    Apart from what I have been ordered to do around the house by the boss, I have the luxury of having time to read the various people on BU. I have a very good idea of their types.
    Some people you engage with, however reluctantly, while others you just ignore and hope they will go away and seek help.
    One or two just make up things as they go along, in a vain attempt to attract attention, by fabricating nonsense such as my religious and denominational belief, while one or two are angry, bitter, vicious, fuming, deranged and badly in need of treatment.
    It is middle-aged angst, when one audits one’s life and believes that one has not achieved all one could or should, either materially or professionally. But be safe and don’t let the viruses of any kind get to you.
    By the way, a former colleague of mine, a young English woman, emailed this morning to wish me a happy New Year, and told me she had visited Barbados twice in 2020. Sadly she contracted CoVid (she did not say where she caught it) and is now suffering from Long CoVid.
    She is keen to live in Barbados. I plan to invoice the tourist board for acting as a marketing agent for the island. She heard me talking so much about Barbados she had to see it for herself.
    She also sings the praises of Oistin’s. I have long told them Brits will like Oistin’s, Yanks will not.

  • Can a U.S. Citizen be Extradited to Another Country?

    The answer is yes, United States citizen can be extradicted to other countries in order to be charged with alleged crimes. The laws governing international extraditions are a complicated matter that involves international treaties between the United States and over 100 other countries. 18 U.S.C. §3184 states that an individual may only be extradicted if there exist an extradition treaty between the United States and the requesting country.
    Extradition Process

    Many of the United States extradition treaties require that the allegations against the extradition target be a crime in the United States as well as in the requesting country. Requests for extradition are managed by the State Department and the Department of Justice. To begin the process the requesting country will reach out to their embassy in Washington D.C. in order to make an extradition request to the Department of State who then requests the U.S. Attorney in the district where the target is located in order to begin the extradition proceedings in the federal Courts.

    The federal court will than review the evidence submitted against the target and if sufficient will issue a warrant for his/her arrest. The court will also determine whether there is probable cause that the person committed the offense listed on the treaty in question. If yes, than the court will submit its findings to the U.S. Department of State who will make the final decision as to whether to extradite the target or not.

    Prior to the 1940’s, the United States did not extradite it’s citizens to other foreign jurisdictions. However, all this changed in 1990 when Congress created new legislation that allowed for extradition of U.S. citizens as long as the terms of the treaty between the requesting country and the United States were met. It’s important to note that although a vehicle for extradition exist, the United States can be resistant in certain circumstances in extraditing its own citizens to other countries because of the incongruity of legal systems, harsh punishments in other jurisdictions and whether the extradition is politically motivated.

    Why can’t the local inbreeding political class circle the wagon and tell Uncle Sam to take a hike?

    If there is not ‘sufficient’ evidence to charge anyone for a financial crime committed in Barbados how then can your 97% black Bajan authorities justify the extradition of one of its citizens to be tried in a foreign jurisdiction for an alleged crime committed in Bim?

    Why can’t your “Oreo” buddies in the political class insist on the extradition of the same Don to be put on trial in Barbados along with his alleged collaborators facing a jury of their peers?

    How about you (and your boss woman) asking the current red administration when it is going to go through with its promise to seek an extradition order for the former CEO of the QEH?

  • Fake Observing,

    That is because you would have to go back to the very beginning and read with understanding. It spawned several threads over a period of time.

    WURA had been calling me a sellout for a while and limited in intelligence But on that particular thread she instructed me to do something with my “nuisance life”.

    What first triggered all this was actually weeks ago when I said I have never personally been hindered by a white man in Barbados or suffered overt racism at the hands of a white man. I did not deny that there is racism in Barbados. I simply said it works covertly rather than “in your face”.

    Sometimes, like Hal Austin, she does not call my name. But I know who she means and so do others. She did not call my name on that particular thread but I knew she was referring to me.

    And she did not deny it, did she?

    What angered me was the “nuisance life” comment. What insult can be worse than that?

    If she thinks I have lived a nuisance life then she is indeed a stupid bitch and I make no apologies for saying so.

    This post is directed to you as the person who made the comment but really I am speaking to others who may be now tuning in. Well do I know that speaking to you is useless!

    And now you may have the last word.

    P.S. I seem to recall you calling me a bitch and being tackled by William Skinner for it. As I said, some of you overseas Bajans think you alone have the right.

    Good luck with that!

  • What we in Barbados have to do now is root out the corruption ourselves. But being a country in which there is only a mock divide between the “political class” they tend to close ranks. Being a small island has its advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage is the “incestuous” nature of our relationships.

    It did surprise me that Donville’s small fry case was singled out for attention by the US. There has to be more in the mortar than the pestle. Unfortunately I am not au fait with how these things work. Maybe Artax knows more and can shed some light.

    I cannot argue against the conviction because it seems he did the deed. But I do wish that we had done it ourselves. And we have many others who should be dealt with also.

    The masses need to arise and march against corruption. We must send the signal that we are serious.

    The trial and conviction of Donville Innis in the USA is an irrelevant sideshow.
    The fact that he and his co-conspirators have not been arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned under the 1929 BARBADOS PREVENTION OF CORRUPTION ACT CAP 144 is a national tragedy of immense proportion. The Act stipulates a prison term of between 3 and 7 years.

    The USA should deport him to Barbados after he has served his American sentence and he should be arrested by the RBPF as soon as he touches down at GAIA. Upon conviction in a Barbadian Court Mr. Inniss should be incarcerated in Dodds for the full 7 years and so should Mr. Tasker and Ms. Innes upon their convictions.
