    I made my inquiries and was told CH does not play golf.
    Not that he may not have played once or twice, but not that many times, that you could have played “several times with him”.
    I believe (memory) you made similar comments about the late, former DPP, whose first name was also Charles?

    I recall the medicinal cannabis story with some ferner on the island.
    To my memory Pacha’s primary beef is that CH was part of racist hiring/HR practices at BMLAS, as you pointed out. I never read any factual backup, and have no personal knowledge to say yeah or nay.

    The information I provided Simple Simon reminded me about an opinion being persistently promoted in this forum re: the “Barbadian authorities set up the DEA to arrest Hawkesworth so they could steal his land and money.”

    Information from the Court indicates otherwise.

    BACKGROUND:

    The U.S. Government began investigating Hawkesworth for cocaine trafficking in 2000. The Government suspected that Raphel Douglas (“Douglas”) and Terrence Sugrim (“Sugrim”) were supplying cocaine from Guyana to Hawkesworth. And Appellants were suspected of assisting Hawkesworth in an international drug trafficking operation that distributed cocaine in Barbados and transported cocaine from Barbados and Guyana to the United States.

    As part of its investigation, the Government worked with an unnamed confidential informant. The informant allegedly spoke with Appellants and Hawkesworth on several occasions and made plans to help them transport cocaine to the United States.

    In 2004, a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., returned a two-count indictment against Scantlebury, Gaskin, Hawkesworth, Douglas, and Sugrim. The first count alleged that all five defendants had conspired to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine. The second count alleged that Hawkesworth and Douglas distributed 500 grams or more of cocaine. With respect to Appellants specifically, the indictment alleged that they “obtained false identification cards and documents in order to travel to the United States to facilitate the importation of cocaine from Barbados, Guyana and elsewhere into the United States.”

    J.A. 35. The indictment stated that Hawkesworth was the leader of the organization, which had allegedly shipped 184 ilograms of cocaine from Guyana to JFK Airport in New York City. The indictment also alleged that Scantlebury and Gaskin met with the informant to discuss whether contacts were in place for a test shipment of cocaine and that the informant provided Scantlebury and Gaskin with fake identification cards.

    In support of its requests for extradition from Barbados, the U.S. Government submitted affidavits written by a Senior Trial Attorney in the Criminal Division of the Department of
    Justice (“Trial Attorney”), a Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) special agent, and the confidential informant. The Trial Attorney’s affidavit stated that the evidence against the
    defendants included the testimony of the confidential informant and of DEA agents, audio and video recordings of conversations, photographs, telephone records, passport records, airline records, and seized cocaine. The DEA special agent’s affidavit stated that 184 kilograms of cocaine, packed in a shipment of frozen seafood, was seized at JFK Airport on September 20, 2003, and that, later that day, the confidential informant met with Sugrim and Hawkesworth, who said that they had lost a load of 180 kilograms of cocaine that had been shipped to JFK. The DEA affidavit also noted that the confidential informant “was told that nobody was arrested.”

    J.A. 132. In addition, the DEA affidavit noted that the confidential informant had worked with the DEA for approximately five years and had proven to be “completely reliable.” Id. at 129.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    So, based on the above information, I’m finding it very difficult to believe the US government, Justice Department, DEA……… would allow themselves to be DECEIVED (or SET-UP) and forced into a situation where they lost valuable time and resources over a 19 year period, so that some Barbadians politicians could steal Hawkesworth’s land and money.

  • Cops ‘partly to blame’
    Some defence attorneys respond to bail concern
    by CARLOS ATWELL carlosatwell@nationnews.com

    THE BARBADOS POLICE SERVICE must bear part of the blame for reoffenders receiving bail, say some prominent defence attorneys.
    In yesterday’s SUNDAY SUN, Commissioner of Police Richard Boyce said the issue was akin to “putting out the same fire over and over again”, adding it was a drain on police resources.
    However, Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley said bail was a right and the police needed to get its act together.
    “If a man is charged, there has to be some basis upon that man being charged which means the police should have a file with statements ready. However, the waiting period for these files is more than a year and it is totally ridiculous to have to wait that long to get a complete file while a man, in some instances, remains on remand with no regard to the fact he should have had a trial within a reasonable time,” he said.
    Lashley said he was currently involved in a matter where he had not received any statements from the police in more than a year so he applied for bail.
    Commissioner Boyce had said while he did not have the exact statistics to hand, a substantial number of the murder and firearms cases cleared this year resulted in the arrests of several people already on bail. In some cases, he added, the offenders had been put on bail twice or more, and on each occasion there was an escalation in the crimes committed.
    In response, Lashley called for those statistics to be revealed, stating: “I want to know what those statistics are in relation to reoffenders charged for murder and for gun crime if granted bail. If you are going to make statements like that, you must base it on evidence.
    “The police needs to get its act together and use modern technology to record witness statements and send that to us so we don’t have to wait on paperwork,” said the attorney, who compared Barbados paper system to that of the technologically driven one in Tortola where statements were on CD and part of the hearing on Zoom.
    Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim said greater priority needed to be placed on those who keep appearing in court for the same matters.
    “The solution to all our problems in this regard is speedy trials. But where does the fault lie? We need good investigations with a high quality of evidence. We have five judges now so the system
    had sped up but what more can we do?
    “There needs to be a clear strategy where people on bail who reoffend, we have to try them for at least one of their matters. You can’t just let people keep coming back this way. You have to be tried and found guilty or not guilty. If you can guarantee a speedy trial, we would be in a better position,” he said.
    Pilgrim said the issue of bail usually came about due to a lack of readiness of the relevant files and the police service may need help in this regard.
    Pilgrim said the knee-jerk reaction to ban bail altogether would infringe on constitutional rights.
    Attorney Angela Mitchell-Gittens said she had clients on remand who wanted to plead guilty and get their matters over but they could not, due to a lack of files for trial. She said pretrial detentions could not go on forever and the longer someone spent on remand, the more likely they would be granted bail.
    “If files are brought in a timely manner and the guilty convicted and the innocent acquitted, we would not be having this problem. The police don’t have unlimited resources and I suspect this is why they are unable to produce these files in a timely manner . . . ,” she said.

    In the case of Iran Contras who the CIA were working with in late 80s, drug smugglers were CIA assets under protection from prosecution by DEA. The Lockerbie bombing on Pan Am Flight 103 was alleged to have CIA drugs and two US Intelligence officers from the CIA and DIA Agents aboard who were about to spill the beans and raise their concerns to Washington DC. The bomb was alleged to be an CIA inside job using alleged CIA drug smuggling routes to ship heroin to the U.S. using Pan Am flights as per Oliver North in the Iran-Contra scandal, where a suitcase that contained Heroin was allegedly switched to one containing bombs.
    Pan Am took the US Government to Court over this but their case was struck out.

    In the current SPIRITUAL battle being waged, the EVIL forces have been allowed to gain the upper hand because brass bowls have CHOSEN to follow their albino-centric doctrines about materialism, greed and selfishness.
    Basically the OTHER spiritual side of the conflict has had to concede to our brass bowl wishes – and take a step back.

    The point is if Charles Herbert is known to enjoy hiking there is little chance he will play golf!!

    In all the years I hiked I never met a body who played golf on any hike.

    Rather, hikers were miffed when Wastemoreland stopped us hiking through the cart roads and trails and Richard Goddard organised a hike along the Indian Trail that crossed Apes Hill golf course.

    CH was on it.

    We can talk of agriculture and what needs to be done, but the best argument against not planting anything is praedial larceny of any kind. Greatest threat to food security. Public enemy #1.

    Griffith said investigations had also revealed that the murders were as a result of persons taking the law into their own hands.

    “In one particular case there was a man on bail for three murders and one would expect that along the way he would have created several enemies and given the climate that exists amongst those persons anything can happen at any time,” Griffith maintained.

    What is he saying here. One moment it is among gangs and the next moment it is vigilante justice. Must the vigilante be a gang member, or could it be a victim’s family member who seeing the slow pace of injustice tries takes matter into his/her own hand.

    He could have been more exact and say “The murderers could be anybody, but we are hot on their trail”

    “The first thing I’d like to say is that we must not lose sight of the fact that this is a spike. From practically time in memoriam we have always seen, whether it is in relation to homicides, gun-related crimes, burglaries, we’ve never seen a consistent level of activity. It dies down and then periodically it will emerge as a spike again. While the nature and extent of this spike could not have been anticipated by anyone, we see no reason to believe this is a start of what could be an extended trend,” Marshall said.

    **Breaking news. The volume of crime goes up and down; it fluctuates.

    ons who have been identified as targets, we too expend tremendous resources in protecting those persons. We take those persons into safe custody and keep them safely until things die down and if we were not doing that, mind you, our murder rate would be skyrocketing,”

    **Hogwash. If anything, you have delayed the murder. What you need to do is to get gunmen off the streets and in prison.

    From BT
    “Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, David Griffith said the BPS was working around the clock and had so far solved 15 of the 28 murders to date.”

    ** And all this time I thought the police force was on duty for 24 hours

    Several time we have seen the GoB of The RoB getting it done and then having to do it over.. It is time we abandon “Get it done” and adopt “Get it right”.

    Now that we are fully aware that money is short (and missing) we have to “measure twice and cut once”. The do-over government of 2018-2022 needs to be left behind in the dust.

    So let’s get it right (first time)

    Yes, “the police force is on duty for 24 hours.”

    Police officers work three (3) shifts, which is basically 24 hours. Sometimes detectives work 12 hour shifts.

    Detectives assigned to particular cases, for example, are sometimes required to work beyond their shifts…… in other words, extended hours, while relinquishing off days.
    As ACP Griffith said, ‘working around the clock.’
