The Caribbean Export Travesty or "Things Fall Apart – Caribbean Style" Part I

pamela-coke-hamiltonThe following originated from a BU source.

Some years ago, during my formative school years, I had to read a novel titled “Things fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe. I must say that it is quite a fitting title for the travesty and abuse of international […]

development funding that I will outline here.

All across the Caribbean it appears that our peoples have lost focus on what is important – telling the truth, being professional and responsible.

In fact, the norm is now to tell “half truths” – where those “truths” facilitate securing development resources, being unprofessional – where such facilitates jobs paying one ½ million US Dollars per year (cash and perks) and, for the most part, neither delivering the ToRs of one’s engagement nor being accountable to anyone regarding your job description where such is allowed, or sometimes actively supported, by the lax oversight of National Authorizing Officers.

Special mention must be made of the systemic practices of mismanagement of National Indicative Resources at the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CE).

    The governmental Agreement of CE has a difference, while CARICOM required all signatures, CE do not , and maybe that the reason why any corrupted chairman/Board and ED can do as they like, but the difference was given to facilitate a smoother way of getting it work done, some governments of CARICOM from the start of CE programs one country or the other cause confusion in some form that cost Thousand of Dollars to be wasted, a simple thing like attending a Board Meeting some countries officials could not get right ,CE send Board papers in advance, the official turned up without papers , meaning printing papers again (time and money) wasted , you may ask why send papers, the sending of the papers determine who come to the meeting , a classic case of counterproductive by a country, the map of Guyana was printed in hundred of books and delivered to CE , on receiving a copy, the President at the time on seeing the map in the book, formed and concluded , that the map shading showed Venezuela in Guyana and the book cannot go on sale that way, the books went to the then SSA pulverization plant in St. George, thousand of dollars wasted, many cases of wastage of money that the EU in Barbados knew about , and do not refund , somehow when CE is low in funds due to the member countries not paying on time or not at all a letter of comfort from the Barbados Government will suffice

    when you hear that the EU give funding it is not a lump sum one time , when I was at CE it was refunds for invoices , so when a dishonest Jamaican had thousand of US$ for a trade show overseas came back without invoices, got a loan from Barclays to buy a DF car , credited tickets from Bits travel for family and back to Jamaica with Honda car, Bits tickets Barclays money , followed by a sister Jamaican with new land rover and Barclays money , you think this ED did not hear how things is done in Barbados

    Watchman & Retribution….a real convoluted scam, how did they ever expect it to last more than 5 years, the EU was probably giving them enough rope to hang themselvves just waiting for this day to arrive. As we all know, corruption is condoned in small island societies, the Jamaicans and others involved would be in their element in such an environment.. Of course the directos would know all of this, how could they not.

    As I said in an earlier post Watchman, the EU uses the carrot and stick approach when dealing with the Caribbean, why would they care if programs and projects are implemented in time, Hayden would know. I am aware that it’s an invoice refunded program.

    Despite EUs attitude, however, they will care that their money is being used by the unscrupulous to fund corruption in the Caribbean. It does also show them up as taking too long to fund the projects, by the time they get finally get around to it, a new generation of thieves would have graduated universities and put in place across the Caribbean to continue the cycle of corruption, so yes, what is happening now, does not exactly make the EU look like angels either.

    So CE Management, or Dr. PCH and McNair have licence to continue to fool the EU, AND the respective governments, continue purges like the recent staff reorganisation/restructuring undertaken in December 2014, and you are intimating that this non-transparent process may not get an investigation?

    How can this so-called restructuring/reorganisation process, which not only demonstrates (i) the deliberate disregard for employees rights, (ii) disregards Caribbean Export ‘s organisation’s staff hand book, (iii) the employment laws of Barbados (iv) is additionally unjust insofar as the employees being denied severance benefits be just permitted?

    Even if you ignore all of this rough shod behavior by a “management team” of persons seemingly knowledgeable in legal matters, human resource management and operational procedures, you mean that we can just pass off the immediate rehiring of the same compliment of staff, given management’s rationale that “there was no money to keep all staff members, as an accounting strategy of getting 10 flying fish instead of 5 for $5?”

    The EU, if they were really keen to find out if the accusations leveled at this agency are true, could start a Forensic Audit, again that is conditional on if EU Ambassador Barford and his party were keen.

    That Forensic Audit team, engaged from a non-regional or non biased jurisdiction, would among its numerous tasks and examinations, examine the close to 150 contracts that were unilaterally terminated, interview those firms AS WELL AS THOSE TO WHOM NEW CONTRACTS WERE THEN UNILATERALLY RE_AWARDED, WITHOUT employing the standard procedures that CE is bound by.

    What do you think?

    That is not too hard is it? But then Barford may implicate himself WHEN paintings from his wife are found on the CE inventory list

    Maybe they might start with ** the wife of Prof The Honourable Bishnodat Persaud CHB,Ph.D,FRSA, the former bosom buddy and former consultant of Design Caribbean in the Dominican Republic who was fired by the good Dr. Coke Hamilton…whu you think?

    If the European Union Delegation were serious you would think that they should be able to find the evidence in the CE files BEFORE “management” is able to shred all of the documents – a practice which McNair started two weeks ago.

    I guess that according to the very knowledgeable Watchman, that won’t happen because then it would become glaring apparent what the writer of this article has clearly shown.

    This clearly shows how the existing CE management is “fudging” its operations and are not sticking to their procurement regulations

    AA (not American Airlines) from one woman to another, after all you did for Pamela, it is not fair what PCH did to you.

    In fact, it is not fair that every single staff member who they could not control and they fired during the time they have been there, should subsequently find themselves blacklisted when you go for jobs with new employers and list CE as a former place of employ.

    So they fire you, refuse to pay your severance and then bad talk you, that is killing a person slowly while smiling in their face.

    And we all know how Chris and Pamela love to smile in your face.

    You think that Danilo Bruno, Audit Task Manager, DEVCO G3, Latin America and Caribbean has heard of this article?

    Do you think that DFID, the Canadian High Commission, the Interamerican Development Bank and all of these bilateral development agencies are checking into what appears to be a “double-dipping” scheme?

    It would seem to me that Chris and Pamela could have fallen out with Bradshaw as a result of putting one invoice from a beneficiary for a Renewable Energy Project in two requests for reimbursement under their Contribution procedures.

    Yes CE have a license to do great work in CARIFORUM, the problem is CE from the start give permits to unscrupulous Managers

    As long as the EU grant funds are disbursed by invoices reimbursement ( the way I knew it was) to CE the EU don’t care, I know of an accountant who was fired from an EU funded organization for informing EU of the crooked SG&FM, she hand delivered the info and before she get back to the office the SG was informed, as to the purging of staff without severance pay, if the staff at CE had a one year contract like the contracts in my time with %for gratuity, then that % of gratuity is end of service the severance pay, but a precedent was done in 2003 when a # of staff were going home, CE pay staff for the years at CE even though staff were paid at end of contract before , now you must ask the then ED from the DR and Anthony Bradshaw , why it was done, who went home with big money, who got payout big money and stay at CE, was the funds from the EU , or was it from the member countries contribution because CE as for as I knew could not make money from books sales, due to the fact that gross mistakes in books by unqualified staff made the books unsalable

    You know a lot about these people. So you saying staff were, or are, entitled to severance pay, some sort of percentage that is based on the time you worked at CE. Why then is the current CE Executive Director refusing staff that? Is that against Barbados Labour Laws? Is CE one of those places that do not have to pay severance? That may be a stupid question but I admit I do not know anything development agencies. It is my GF who used to work there and is now being unfaired by the CE.

    I told her, girlfriend you worked too hard for your money and to now find yourself, in these hard economic times, not able to get your severance pay, that is not fair. Watchman you know that every place she has gone for a job that woman Pamela bad talking her? And to think that Caribbean Export has such a bad reputation now that this woman is there, I call her doctor bitch, she make me shame to be a woman.

    De Madam often tells me that I must guard my mouth when speaking to people (in person, or here in cyberspace) and I have taken to hiding? responding with the Bible Verse with Elisha which said “And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them..” as sanction to curse in other circumstances

    Certainly showing that even the Word can be misquoted when serving our own purposes.

    Various studies propose that cusswords can (i) be used positively for joking or storytelling, (ii) for stress management (which ole menses need) (iii) for fitting in with the crowd (which your people do) or (iv) as a substitute for physical aggression, an internal pressure release valve.

    A recent study by Psychological Scientists proposes that cursing and other seemingly unacceptable expletives is a manifestation of “enhanced pain forbearance”and has a relieving outcome which people, under great duress, suffering and pain like what we Bajans are experiencing under the BDLP administrations.

    Some of us who are born for war do not do too well in Eden.

    Apologies to you, the fairer sex and others whom the comment offended. You must realise that ole policemens trained under ** and not at Paragon is not wusses so excuse de ole man when we Bajans doing jobby causing I gine tell wunna like it is.

    Pieces,

    Another useless study just repeating what smart people have known for years. Cussing is a stress reliever and often substitutes for a physical attack.
