    So he got charge for fraud and some comments said pray for him? It don’t matter if you a beggar or police Sargent, he needs to pay for his crime. Barbados needs to stop having two sets of laws, one for the ordinary citizen, and the other for those who should know better. This guy should know better. I hope the victims sue his estate or property, and get their funds back. I don’t care if he is what, he is a criminal. He needs to be off the job. I heard about a prominent person knock down a cyclist, but was able to sue the cyclist for damaging his car. Only in barbados where the rich can buy up beach property and close it off from the general public. Or put huge rocks where was once picnic spots to prevent people from accessing the area

    I pass by a hotel up ch ch, they enclose that entire beach area. You can only access that beach if you a guest at the hotel. Then they have a tiny space to access the beach, but it says… private property. Barbados getting sold off. Citizens lucky they have a few beach spaces

    Charges will be swept under the big rug, don’t trust anyone these days. The biggest criminals are the ones who think they above the law. He will contact his friends to get the charges disappear. The victims have to get a lawyer. That’s why customs clerks treat Caribbean visitors with gross disrespect and get away with it, because we give these people too much respect and trust they don’t deserve. At the end of the day, they are the same humans like all of us.
