Media Barred from Emma McManus’ Inquest

Caroner Graveney Bannister
Caroner Graveney Bannister

In December 2020 Emma McManus the former wife of John Paul McManus and the son of JP McManus died while holidaying at the plush Sandy Lane Estate at one of the villas. JP McManus is known to be one of the owners of the world class property.

Of interest to the blogmaster is the decision to stage inquest into the death of Emma McManus in camera. The high court had previously held that the case should be held in private and Caroner Magistrate Graveney Bannister upheld a request from McManus’ lawyers to remove the press from the room. Interesting the decision came at the point the toxicology report was about to be shared in the proceedings.

From all reports it seems the McManus legal team has a problem with Caroner Graveney Banister. The bane of contention with the goodly magistrate is a disputed phone call between John Paul McManus and Bannister after Emma McManus’ death, where it is alleged the partying group that included the late Emma McManus had been snorting cocaine. John Paul McManus latter clawed back from the alleged reported statement to Bannister. WHY THE HELL WOULD MAGISTRATE BANISTER MAKE UP SUCH A STATEMENT IS WHAT INQUIRING MINDS WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.

The saying that something smells rotten in Denmark seems very appropriate to anyone following the coroner’s inquiry into Emma McManus’ death. 

The blogmaster is all about transparency and justice. That a rich foreigner would accuse an officer of the local court of telling a lie is big news. This blogmaster has been patient since the news broke in December 2020 waiting for an outcome, however, it seems this is one of those matters that will be moved on the roster until the matter fades from public interest. What the blogmaster would do to secure a copy of the toxicology report. If the report identified cocaine or some narcotic traces in the body of Emma McManus at the time of her death it would support the contentious statement that illegal drugs were being consumed AND that alleged conversation took place?

One can speculate if the inquest involved a member of the blue collar community the decision to switch to in camera to shield proceedings from the public would be a moot consideration. The blogmaster is aware there is keen interest from the outside world in the matter and how it eventually turns out has implications for how onlookers will view the delivery of justice in Barbados. Hopefully this is not a case of a small country being bullied by the money class.

The other inquiry ongoing into the death of Stewart Mottley, brother of Prime Minister Mottley in June 2021 is also of interest. The fact the matter is being prosecuted by the Elliot Mottley, father of the deceased is also interesting. The blogmaster will reserve comment on the matter for now and take the opportunity to extend condolences to Prime Minister Mottley and family.

    Take for instance, last week a shooting took place in Black Rock. Location? According to the media, “near a fast food outlet”. Apparently the outlet has no name. Something as simple as that can be controlled.

    @Mr Blogmaster, your post above poses queries for review but it also presents some very UNCLEAR bits of information … can you please clarify:

    1)“Of interest to the blogmaster is the decision to stage inquest into the death of Emma McManus in camera. The high court had previously held that the case should be held in private and Caroner Magistrate Graveney Bannister upheld a request from McManus’ lawyers to remove the press from the room. Interesting the decision came at the point the toxicology report was about to be shared in the proceedings.”

    If the High Court had ALREADY ruled on the matter of private (in camera) proceedings WHY is the ruling by the magistrate – which according to your post, simply affirms that previous decision – a matter of interest, regardless of when it was done???

    And 2), what was the reason for the disputed call to Coroner Bannister ?Was it an official call relevant to the inquest?

    And if such a call was made why would such details be ‘leaked’ on a matter that would be sub judice (or to become such)?

    The context of the call and the noted dispute seems rather strange (incomprehensible actually) in the context of an inquest hearing.

    So what exactly are you reporting above ?

    Condolences to the family of Ezra Alleyne… a smart, very intelligent attorney.
    Who can forget his big early claim to fame as one of the local attorneys back in the 80s for the notorious train robber Biggs.

    May be rest peacefully!

    This case has the tinge of super-citizenry and Whiteness.

    Not dissimilar to the current furore of a Black American basketball player arrested in Russia on drug trafficking charges. A case being politicized by Biden and media in America.

    That case sees the intersectionality of virtue signaling, wokeism, cancel culture with the war in Ukraine, as a special dispensation is being demanded from the Russian judicial system for Brittney Griner.

    First. The Russians take drug trafficking very serious. And they legal system is very straight forward. Nothing like the gangsterisn at the center of America’s where prosecutors force people to entry guilty pleads to recieve a lesser sentence. Griner has pleaded guilty since February and awaits sentencing as her “wife” misguidedly works the media circuit.

    Americans will not remember Maria Butina a Russian woman, now a member of the parliament. about whom a movie was made, who was arrested in the Russiangate fiasco for failure to register as a foreign agent as she worked with the NRA on guns issues.

    Butina was keep in jail for over a year, sexually molested, in a maximum security cell, defamed on “Trump up” charges of connections with the specious Russian funding of an election campaign. An embrolio now shown to be the concoction of three progressive. Hillary Clinton, and her campaign.

    Being besotted by things Russian and Chinese, as David has charged, a comparative analysis of the criminal American injustice system cannot be avoided. For what is perceived to be the forces around this case in Barbados can never be best understood, synthesized.absent context.

    To the Russians, this has nothing to do with Ukraine. The Russians well remember the Butina miscarriage of justice. Griner and her supporters would have been better off by letting the Russisn judicial system be and avoiding honorary Whiteness. So too would be the people in Barbados trying to exert White privalege over this enquiry.

    you have to know MAM has been part of the Sandy Lane crew for years. This crew even held a race day in England prior to 2018 where races were named after her, and Sandy Lane. And this particular sect of the crew have serious money. Their support must have value? And if that means hiding certain details of an unfortunate death, so be it.
    What is interesting, is in a place were court time is at a premium, the judiciary are involved with two sad, and recent deaths, .meanwhile two living Barbadians, accused of trafficking cannabis, remain without a passport to travel, which has impacted their ability to earn a living, a boat has been seized as evidence, and still no trial?

    @David, ok re “How would the blogmaster know the finer details as to why McManus called Bannister?”

    That was not my concern … rather why would such a call be made … I couldn’t get the context as I am unfamiliar with the timeline of events here. It simply seemed odd to me that a party to a planned or possible inquest would be communicating directly with the coroner in ANY manner like that!

    The in camera matter is less troubling and in fact makes valid legal sense for me as a layman.

    An inquest will provide evidentiary guidance for the police and in such a high profile matter it makes sense to keep key sensational aspects private if they can impact any possible future criminal proceeding.

    But of course… because of the scandalous drug allegations we will all believe there is a cover-up to sanitize the bad behaviors or the rich and famous!

    Yet for all that clearly the inquest verdict will be made PUBLIC regardless of whether we know the details of the toxicology report … the question then, of course, is whether that coroner’s verdict is contrived or a truthful result based on ALL the evidence!

    In all societies money talks and can buy high powered attorneys who push legal theory as far as they can … that’s the game !

    Anyhow thanks for the clarifications.

    Lata.

    Putin has a near 90 percent approval rating. So even if at home he has no opposition, which raaasssoul Western leader can match that? The truth is that the Communist Party in the Duma is the second most popular and the entire Russian government is unified against the Western criminals which you are a lackie for.

    On drugs. Taken by athletes. The bodybuilding community in the Western world is currently facing an epidemic of these muscle men dying early or having all kinds of maladies from the use of performance enhancement substances. But you have not a fucking word to so say.

    But this writer was never talking about performance enhancing substances. We were talking about hashish and paraphernalia found in the BG’s luggage at a Russian

    But like a bitch in heat you misread what we said and seized the opportunity to presume you could chastise this critical supporter of President Putin, Critical, because he won’t use the nuclear weapons on wunna crotch.

    We said you are a cunt and mean it. Like the propagandists in the West you presume that Putin and Russia are the same. This is idiocy. The truth is that Putin for decades was trying to stave off the establishment in Russia demanding action on security, Nato expansionism.

    I wrote ‘Not that others are not trying hard, they are just years behind”, this is full acceptance that athletic drugging is a global phenomena. Even little Canada had a 100m gold medallist DQ’d for stanozonol back in ’88. But the Russians are the best. And it isn’t just weight lifters, it exists in all sports, all over. And Russian specialists in this area are highly sought out.
    Yet having the Russians claim disdain at a few street drugs, while lacing their own athletes with other drugs, and using some very advanced poisons (I suppose that is all western media concoctions) is amusing. Like the Canadian PM speaking to others about human rights violations when we have our own indigenous history, the fullness of which is just surfacing.

    @Northern and @The Blogmaster, that also amazes and amuses me about this guy that : “that whenever [he gets] get caught with [his] undergears showing, [he resorts] to a litany of expletives.“. 🤦‍♂️ I don’t fault anyone’s support for anything but good grief surely one can fault HYPOCRITICAL , BS claims in building said support, can’t one!

    When he says Russia is conservative for example are we to understand that word in the context of how it has been used recently in the US as an ‘exemplar’ of racist, ethnocentric, far-right extremism? Or when he says that Russians are NOT white but are rather some ethnic mix that makes the Slavs and others from the Caucuses NOT part of the Western WHITE hegemony is that supposed to suggest that Russians show more love and affinity for African and other minorities than Americans or Europeans or that they can live and thrive in Russia sans racial animosity???

    So yes @Northern I too found is very laughable that Russia is a paragon of illicit drug safety yet have been drugging their athletes so wantonly for years … or that ONE person caught with “cannabis oil in her luggage” for her vaping purposes is deemed to be a drug TRAFFICKER! … she broke Russian law clearly, but she is NOT a trafficker and Russia’s attitude on this matter is clearly an overreach! … This is not about special dispensation … it’s about fairness and justice!

    To compare this to Maria Butina is hilariously absurd or simply annoyingly hypocritical. The fact that Butina is now a member of the parliament certainly is not a preview of Garner’s possible status as they is no autocratic leader back in US to hoist her into such an elected role on her return! 😎🤣

    Steeupse re Russiangate fiasco … let’s be CLEAR. In simple terms Ms Butina was charged and indicted in the US as a a SPY. Period. The statute under which she was charged is similiar to those 10 Russian spies ousted from US in 2010…it was NOT the ‘foreign agent’ non-registration matter which refers to failure to LEGITIMATELY certify as a lobbyist or business agent for a foreign entity or government!.

    Summarily, she was an agent of Russia sent to US to do her clandestine best to subvert policy and opinions … she did an absolutely excellent job. She could very well still be in jail. That was NO miscarriage of justice and to equate this to the Garner ‘error or judgement’ is as noted ABSURD! FACTS do matter!

    Ah well … it’s easy to cuss and hyperventilate than deal with ‘Trumped-up’ contest where Mr Popular can IMPRISON or POISON with impunity and the complicity of his awesome justice system ANY Russian who dares criticize him in song or on the campaign trail. What a ting eh!

    A bitter truth from Ugandan President MUSEVENI said:

    👉Do you know that if today Africa is underdeveloped and denigrated, it’s because of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)?
    The Congo is the safe of Africa, in particular, and of the whole world, in general.
    It’s true that it’s a geological scandal, but the whites have taken over this country.
    The whites have created a system to plunder the country, from top to bottom, under the beards of all Africans.
    👉How?
    They created something called: “MONUSCO” – a United Nations Mission in Congo, it seems to keep the peace.
    They spend 3,500,000 USD every day and the locals suffer like hell…
    They’ve been there, about 20 years already.
    They have an annual budget of 13 billion USD for 22,000 troops, the largest number of contingents in a single country, since the creation of the United Nations when the country has a budget of 4 billion dollars, for a population of approximately 80 million inhabitants.
    👉How is this possible, please?…
    A group of foreigners comes to your country, under the pretext of keeping the peace, something they have never done!
    👉They settle there for 2 decades without providing any single solution to the country’s problems and use 4 times the sum that the country uses for all its population who are languishing below the poverty line.
    👉They share the trunk as follows:
    Of these 13 billion each year:
    USA sends 28% and will receive in return according to its contribution,
    Japan 10%,
    Germany 7%,
    France 7%,
    UK 6%,
    Italy 4%,
    Russia 3%,
    👉 And the R.D.C increases only 0.03%…
    Where does this money go?
    If it’s not to pay the engineers who are on the ground extracting the minerals?
    👉Then these engineers send this money back to their own respective countries…
    The minerals are exported to be shared between the countries that have contributed for this extraction process.
    👉The 13 billion don’t stay in the country for the development of it…
    These countries have not built anything. They haven’t improved anything, they don’t buy anything as basic necessities to at least put 1 dollar in the pocket of a mother who sells tomatoes for the survival of her family because they import everything from their countries of origin , while these 13 billion, the Congolese and Africa do not benefit from it.
    We’re bewitched, I swear.
    👉And now they are in negotiations with the priests of the country to renew their shitty mandate.

    Does Russia even have a demographic on their census forms that identifies their racial differences a la US for example?

    Surely that’s a melting pot of ethnic variety in 193 groupings but what does it mean to be Slav, or Tatar or Turk or Chechen or whatever?

    And what exactly does belonging to one of those multitudes of ethnicities actually mean (if anything) about racial identity!

    We know that Blacks were as indoctrinated to Russia communist ethos as others and thus many studied/visited/lived there back from 60s and beyond.

    But the question is : Did they establish ANY foothold of belonging in their adopted homeland and do those white face Russians we see on TV or at the Olympics or UN or in Red Square embrace those Black brethren as kith and kin?

    It’s easy to throw facts and figures around like the above or the one re the 90 percentile Putin polling metric or him being so popular to be in power (President of PM) for 20 years and counting but isn’t some degree of intellectual and reasoned discourse needed to dissect those top line numbers properly or at least try to?

    If Trump was like Putin or could have acted like him with a complicit Duma like Congress then clearly he would still be in power today … and undoubtedly he would be arranging a change of the constitution – as Putin DID – to ensure he was able to run AGAIN after this term in 2024!

    There is enough serious crime to read about, almost daily, that affects all of us and is not being solved.

    Ponder on that instead.

  • How can the police mention no suspicious circumstances with the results of the inquest pending?

  • David, come on. When a body is found, invariably the press reports a police spokesperson on whether the death was suspicious. No such here.

    On a further point, if there were compromising details, of a death that os accidental, do you really think that publicity of such would benefit Barbados?

    I suggest not, quite the opposite.

    Although, I am not sure how much more damage such could do, as the multiple gangland murders are already dragging the country’s name down.

    If this high society group was cavorting at Sandy Lane snorting coke as rumoured and as her husband allegedly communicated to the Coroner then yes, the public needs to know.

  • David,

    Why? Who gives a flying monkeys?

    I care about the safety of my family walking about. About a job, about the health system, about the Auditor General report, because that tells me where tax dollars are going.

    The lives of the rich and famous are not my concern.

    Same reason I do not watch that Kardashian crap and never have.

    Nothing to do with me nor help me.

    As long as it is not a crime of violence, impacting the general Bajan populace, I do not care.

  • David, check the latest reports on the use of Coke internationally, including USA and UK.

    It is rife. And where the high flying are, whether stockbrokers or lawyers on Wall Street, or City of London, or the grand mansions in the Hamptons, there is coke.

    Yes, drugs ruin lives. But the current “war” is not working and cannot work when the very people who control the war, are users.

    Fight the battles that we can win. Not those where we are bystanders.

    That is different world. Has been so since Alexandra’s. Logically, just better hidden.

    Dem is dem and we is we.

    “had someone close being chased down to do some work for this sleazy expat from UK…he finally found the time to do it but when time came to pay, could not find the fraud for his money, but caught up to him one day and asked why he was not paid….he allowed him to know that he knows the PM, they are friends and if he keeps harassing him….FOR HIS MONEY, mind you…he will have him arrested..”

    Your close friend or relative is an IDIOT. I would bet anything that if the job had been offered to him/her by a black working class old woman like me your friend/relative would have demanded most or all of the money upfront.

    I am surprised to learn that you have such an idiotic friend or relative.

    People have to understand that proximity to whiteness, to wealth or to power is NOT THE SAME as money in the bank.

    IDIOTS.

    If rich, white or powerful people want work done treat them EXACTLY the same as you trear black, working class black women.

    Who by the way ALWAYS pay their bills in full and on time.

    Since none of thes plants grow in Barbados:
    Erythroxylum coca var. coca
    Erythroxylum coca var. ipadu
    Erythroxylum novogranatense var novogranatense,
    Erythroxylum novogranatense var. truxillense

    And since it is unlawful to import any of them or their derivatives into Barbados does it not concern you that it is alleged that visitors were “partying” with the plants or their derivatives?

    Do you believe that only rich white foreigners allegedly use cocaine in Barbados?

    Have you ever met a paro?

    Was the paro not a BLACK BAJAN MALE?

    Take a guess about one of the primary drivers of gun violence in Barbados?

    Your children, grandchildren etc migh be safe now from the scourge of cocaine use,, but how do you know that it wall always remain so?

    So many, many questions?

    So few answers.

    I have a cousin. my maternal grandmother’s great grandson who is a cocaine user/addict and he [sadly too often a he] has used up a whole lot of your tax dollars already, and mine too, time in prison, time in the psychiatric hospital, time for a criminal trial. He does not support his Bajan daughter, hasn’t done so for more than a decade, does not work, receives a welfare grant [your tax dollars wukkin’ fah you] exploits his elderly parents, and I could go on and on and on. And when his parents die, as they will sooner rather than later [being well over 70] he will be coming through your window or mine or David’s to find money to feed his coke habit.

    I put it to you, that if people known or unknown, Bajan or foreigner, rich or poor, black or white or any other color, are importing cocaine into Barbados it is the business of all of us.

    Because even though cocaine may be imported by the idle rich, invariably some “falls offa de truck” or the plane and right into the laps or up the noses of our vulnerable young men, and when young men phuck up invariably their children are harmed.
