Mark Maloney Scammed!

Thanks to Bajan Citizen for producing relevant links to the latest story making the rounds about Mark Maloney being scammed out of US10 million dollars purported to be a payment for 1 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine on behalf of Barbados and two other governments.

The blogmaster has two questions:

  1. On what basis was Maloney’s company Radical Investments Ltd selected to broker this transaction.
  2. Is the government out of pocket because of the errant transaction.
  3. How does being out of pocket USD6.7 million affect Maloney’s financial state to continue to do business.

Mark Maloney Says $12M COVID Vaccine Deal Was A Scam
https://www.law360.com/commercialcontracts/articles/1422923/barbados-co-says-12m-covid-vaccine-deal-was-a-scam

The case is Radical Investments Ltd. v. Good Vibrations Entertainment LLC et al., case number 9:21-cv-81761, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida

Radical Investments Ltd. is a St Lucia registered company owned by Mark Maloney. 

He appears to have been swindled out of $6.7 millon USD from the governments of St Lucia, the Bahamas and Barbados who contributed money to buy COVID vaccines for their citizens.

“In April 2021, the Governments of Saint Lucia, The Bahamas and Barbados initiated a bulk purchase of AstraZeneca vaccines, as the minimum purchase from authorized suppliers was one million (1,000,000) vaccines.”
http://www.govt.lc/news/saint-lucia-s-efforts-to-secure-high-demand-covid-19-vaccines.

St Lucia contributed $7.3 million EC
https://www.caribbeannewsglobal.com/approval-of-direct-purchase-for-astrazeneca-radical-investments-ltd/

Mark Maloney is deputy chair of the private sector group put together last March to fundraise and acquire more vaccines.
https://barbadostoday.bb/2021/03/03/high-powered-group-ready-to-assist-with-vaccine-financing/

It is not clear what due dilligence Mr Maloney did before entering into this commercial arrangement with Good Vibrations Entertainment LLC. If you were looking to purchase pharmaceuticals would you do business with a company whith a name that connotes mechanical sexual services, and with an address at 21218 St Andrews Blvd Suite 318 that is a mailbox in a UPS store where 175 other fly by night companies also have their “headquarters”???

  • Why are some, including David, so willing to accept this misnomer about two sides and hearing the other side.

    The dynamics of such a case if properly studied will have many sides. Not just one more. Those must include the US government, the Miami company, the American human actors and more. We will never be able to fully understand all the sides.

    This is not a genuine search for truth it is a political calculation in order to kick this issue into the talk grass.

    Memes about governance go down this way of thinking as well. For they should tell us when in the modern political history of Barbados has this notion of governance meant to make anathema systems of any other kind of the socalled governance than the corrupt one we currently have.. In this we include the man here, William Skinner, who has the most actual political experience we know of here.

    What has to happen for us to erect, as a point of departure, that all the cultures around us are built on systems of corruption as a bedrock principle.

  • Whether money was involved or not does not remove the relevancy where illegal practices and engagements took place and which govt signed on to knowing full well that Maloney was not licensed in the field of the health profession to buy vaccines
    Even with the absence of money not handed over
    Govt still had intentions of purchasing the vaccine through the black market via taxpayers money on the arrival of the vaccine( as stated by Bradshaw a key and crucial point drawing upon govt intentions)
    The unethical and immoral practice was signed and govt words can support that much
    Mottley leadership would be forever tarnished and seen as susceptible to scam plans and underground deals and riddle with lies and half-truths resulting from this scam
    In other words her trustworthiness has been downgraded to a big fat zero
    One can only imagined the whispers being heard at the UN as Barbados name is associated with scams across international waters

    I agree.

    Donville Inniss’ scenario was a completely different situation and, as you correctly stated, details of his case affidavit were publicized, thereby giving an insight to reasons why he was arrested and charged.

    And, people, some of whom depending on which ‘side of the fence they sit,’ used that information, in the absence of the actual Court case, as a basis to either ‘convict’ or ‘acquit’ him.

    We’ve seen Maloney’s claim and recently that of the company filing the counter suit. Chastanet has so far given two different versions of his story, while our PM denied giving Maloney any money and we’re yet to hear from the Bahamas.

    Yes, whether who likes it or not, I’m one of those individuals “who want to wait on some court case to determine what was an obvious scam,” similarly to how I was prepared to wait on Inniss’ case.

    Unfortunately, that remark was just a snide way of ‘saying’ we were ready to ‘tar and feather’ Black Donville Inniss, but prefer to wait on white Maloney’s case.

    PAC meeting put back again
    For the second time in recent weeks, a meeting of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has been postponed.
    Yesterday’s session set for the Worthing Corporate Centre in Worthing, Christ Church, was scheduled to discuss discrepancies in the Urban Development Commission, Rural Development Commission and the Poverty Alleviation Fund, which were highlighted in the recent Auditor General’s Report.
    Yet again the PAC failed to get the ball rolling on this investigation due to an inability to form a quorum.
    PAC chairman, Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley, said this was an understandable turn of events, due to the fact some members were overseas on business while things popped up for others at the last minute.
    However, he made it clear this was in no way a reflection on the seriousness which the committee was paying to this set of issues.

    You are usually focused. Do you now have to know about cheese making to buy and import cheese?

    They are deal makers, or fancy themselves as such.
    Cheese, like several of the vaccines, require specialized transport and handling. Nah big ting?
    You already know any legit vaccines which may have been available at that time, likely came via corrupt initial buyers. You need an equally shady person to deal with them? For they will require payment via all sorts of irregular methods and likely have equally shady groups as agents so it will not trace back to them.
    Chastenet got caught. I have already “guessed” he likely thought vaccines would bolster his re-election odds. He knew full well the risks. But it wasn’t his money? The”urgency” was St.L elections. He needs to make the St.L treasury whole or spend some time in jail.

    You are wrong. There are few businesses more corrupt than oil trading. In fact all the procedures are about preventing fraud. Gold is not dissimilar.

    In pharmaceuticals there are a handful of global companies making Covid19 vaccines making them more amenable to due diligence even in cases like you described where bad actors were involved. And we agree many such actors were involved.

    But Barbados as a bad actor could have avoided this scandal which was well known. There is also a market for stolen human body parts for transplantation. Should a country go to that market to avoid deaths as well?

    So while your point on limited manufacturers is true, it doesn’t stop a legit buyer from re-selling? Today we hear of G7 countries, amongst the big early buyers having an over supply, due in part to the slowing take-up at home. Reportedly they are donating them. Or do these donations come with strings? Should they not be returning them to the manufacturers for them to distribute?

We have to invite in the UN or an equivalent body to bring in the structure and the discipline to fix the country; and bring to justice those players over the last fifty years.”

    I don’t know why people keep talking about the last 50 years. Barbados has ALWAYS been an extractive economy. An economy where for hundreds of years a small, white, British and white British descended, church-going minority “successfully” extracted value from the land and from the labor of the black African majority people.” We have learned well from our British masters. We want to be just like them.

    And what is this talk about a UN or equivalent body? Stupssseee!!!! If the British descended USA, the most powerful nation which has ever existed could not in 20 years “fix” Afghanistan, how can the UN fix Barbados? Can the UN even fix itself?

    I stopped believing in strong, powerful, white, foreign or local , church-going, male knights at about the same time I stopped believing in Santa Claus. When I see those fellas coming, I run, real-real fast.

    Barbados has ALWAYS been a difficult place for decent, intelligent, hard working, black women and men.

    Except Donna, that lions only chase gazelles when the lions are truly hungry.

    The lions do not seek to kill 1,000 gazelles or 10,000 at a time in order to have a warehouse full of gazelle meat for their great grand lion cubs.

    Only human beings, the apex predators do that.

  • Cuhdear Bajan,

    True but the gazelle that gets eaten cares not how many others have not been eaten.

    My take on life is that we must stop searching for Utopia and understand that life will always be constant and daily battles of varying proportions.

    A sense of purpose and a little hope makes life enjoyable. The sense of purpose is what enables us to work to make our corner a little better for more people and hope gives us the strength to keep going.

    But the battle is never over and ground which is gained must constantly be defended.

    This infantile brain understands that life can be beautiful in the midst of struggle. Supposedly adult brains can wait for fairy tale happily ever after endings and live in a perpetual state of disappointment and disillusionment.

    But you are an interesting fella. One day you are using Capitalism like a 4 – letter word, referring to it’s constructs…..and the next you are reciting products of those similar constructs (vaccine distribution and organ USA rules) as though they mean something.
    Personally, I have little issue with the Chinese grabbing two Canadians. If Canada is going to arrest somebody under “extradition” agreements, then frigging well hear arguments at warp speed, and either extradite or send home. Don’t dick around with the USA and imperil your own. Apart from these two, China cancelled or scaled back several agricultural and other contracts. Meanwhile the same USA was hogging the vaccines, and refusing to open the border. There are times when one must realize you are just a pimple on a hemorrhoid, and will get blasted when the asshole opens up.

  • “With respect to the issue, Mottley said she has already indicated on Wednesday evening that there is no contract with Radical Investment.”

    the LIES ARE PILING UP…..maloney said in a document filed in a Florida court that he was acting in the capacity as an agent for the Barbados government…..even if they had no written contract it is implied…and it appears that it’s only Black businesses in Barbados get blackballed….AND…ya TAINTED ALREADY…
    and she still can’t tell anyone what maloney was doing sourcing vaccines…gift wrapped lies..

    “We indicated that with Radical, should they be in a position to deliver the 300 000 vaccines, we would pay for them on delivery. Similarly, we had an engagement with another Barbadian world class medical company whose weekly suppliers were prepared to be able to get for us.
    “And those were the ones we paid some money towards and when we realized that the vaccines were not coming from them in a hurry and that we were getting vaccines from elsewhere, on behalf of the Government, I instructed the Director of Finance to ask back for our money, all of which came back since months ago,” she said.

    “And that you believe that by calling his name you can taint this Government and taint the process of vaccination and distribution in our country … The Government of Barbados cannot black ball Barbadian companies of any type, colour or stripe, and we will deal with them,” she said.”
