Things Fall Apart -­ Caribbean Export Style Part II

The following originated from a BU source.

pamela-coke-hamiltonAn  earlier  article  I  wrote  spoke  to  the  financial  and  technical  mismanagement  of  resources  at  Caribbean  Export […]by two people, PCH and CM. A few of you asked “why, in the face of such corruption,

do respective governments, and the EU, unflinchingly continue to reward the poor performance, obvious abuse and the mindless  squander  of  the  European  Union’s  EDF  coffers?  To  highlight  the  tip  of  that  abuse  iceberg,  I  mentioned  the  EU  requirement  that  “any  item  which  receives  funding  from  the  EU  MUST  DISPLAY  THEIR LOGO, PROMINENTLY!! So Pamela, in removing the EU logo from the Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle, displays her blatant disregard for said funding conditions.

    Grandfather, sorry. Some of us have to work. I hope that you are ok and your glasses get fixed soon. CE is officially closing until the first week of January. A skeleton crew will be there to tear up certain files. Surprise Audit coming. Edna Simpson was a GTZ staff member. She replaced Andrea Alleyne the former AA. During the replacement with Mrs Simpson, Andrea, the shoulder that Pamela cried on regularly during the divorce period was terminated. Why? Andrea does not have the social graces or the connections like Edna. Mr. Watchman one thing is can say is that you are an honest man. You man want all the women that you see and that destroys you men. You either lose your reputation, your health or both. Truth be told, very few men can handle us, we just let fool you so that you feel that you are doing something. lol. Ask Well Well

    Where is Part III???

    This is like the Hollywood movie “Friday the XIII Part “forever”!!

    Part I was quite eye opening and titillating with Sankey Price-like “salacious and salubrious” content and “disgruntled staff”.

    It made one sit up and realize that this is happening right here under our noses

    Part II seemed to move away from most of the Sex-in-the-City, sorry Warrens Towers, sensational fluff and more into agreements and management reactions.

    The agreement, based on their signatures, suggest someone on the inside (Deflon Deep Throat Braddie?) and the security camera installs would confirm that.

    What will Part III bring? Copies of the Corporate Card? Bank Statements? Invoices from 3rd falsified third parties generated by Management Computers with metadata with matching files from memory sticks retrieved from Chris’ computer?

    Such Marrion Barry like videos, and documents from inside the “Iron Curtain” would certainly shock readers further, shock you in a way other than the shock management is having per these disclosures.

    @ De Ingrunt Word

    I should ask you this since you seem to be a Canadian with a somewhat “devious disposition” – no insult intended.

    With your “proxy” experience and espionage through novel wisdom, what would you advise the parties with the damning evidence to do?

    If they were going to expose all, and that would seem what Part III would do would you not suggest that, like “Me Clare who are you”, they hold off on exposing those documents, until when ** (or in Clare’s case when soothsayer Cindy speaks to her bald head “translated” Monk from Tibet or when Vaucluse Lands get transferred)

    Suppose de writers (and dem source(s)) was to submit dem documents here, would dat not permit The Evil Trio” of Babel (I like dah, it sound James Bond-ish) to doctor said incriminating documents in de Towers?

    You wud tell dem, doan send nuffin, leave everyting like it is, and let The Evil Trio spend dem time and efforts CHANGING/SHREDDING ALL DEM DOCUMENTS!! all during CHRISTMAS??

    De Ingrunt Word…in the spy literature you did read, you read bout Dusan Popov, the real James Bond? As a sort of “plot within a plot”, you tink that it would be a good time for … to visit CE during Christmas, when every body home stuffing dem guts with curry goat liver, ackee and salt fish??

    Now let us all sing along in the key of D minor.

    “On de first day of Chrismas, my Chief Financial Officer sent to me,
    a Sentinel™ Pro FS3150P Heavy-Duty 30-Sheet Strip-Cut Industrial Shredder Machine.
    On de second day of Chrismas my Executive Director sent to me,
    150 BIC Wite-Out Shake -N Squeeze Correction Pens and a Miss Clairol Hair Dryer (to dry de whiteout fast),”

    Refrain

    “All bought from the European Union Contingency Fundssssss….”

    Wait, Word, how come you ent singing along? you shy uh you voice? you doan sing at Carry your own Key? Adriel Nitwit de Attorney General does sing at de Bar pun Tweedside road pun a night why you doan go and sing long wid he and get practice? doan mind de verses ent rhyming, dem ent supposed to rhyme if de content true!!

    Any politician who does not read Facebook and more specifically Barbados Underground is a novice euphemism for a fool and does so at their own peril.

    “…documents leaked by National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden. Greenwald’s article, How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations, is based on four classified documents produced by the British spy agency GCHQ, and presented to the NSA and three other English speaking agencies reportedly part of “The Five Eyes Alliance.”

    These media correspond to the digital rumshop (to use the words of Georgie Porgie) and cyber soldiers/access agents to gauge the temperature and, in extreme cases, in jurisdictions where despots live, Barbados, gather the IP addresses and names of dissidents.

    So fellows like Amused, Jeff, Colonel Buggy, De Ingrunt Word, and Gabriel are read with watchful eyes because they, while presenting virile and contentious subject matter do so reverently.

    But others like Bush Tea, SSS, Well, Well and Artaxerxes and the Blogmaster are watched, land lines are tapped, where alter egos are known, clusters are profiled, and private eyes are engaged to do explorations in extreme cases

    Ole men like me and Alvin Cummins are ignored as ranting fools soon leaving on the plane to…

    and well AC s, well she’s/they while 3/5ths are fools, fall into the category of “paid covert agents” sent to infiltrate, deceive and obfuscate, a job that while they are paid for it, they manage to ef up royally

    @ The Blogmaster

    I know that you have an article up on this subject matter on the BU site but allow me to post this here. (As many of you know de ole man doan have no original thoughts so I teifing from de internet wid minor changes)

    “What Is Defamation?

    “The publication or broadcast of any libelous or slanderous statement about an individual or business that can be proven to be false and published with the intention of harming that entity’s reputation is considered to be defamation.”

    “Online defamation is the publication of such statements made on any Internet based media including blogs, forums, websites, and even social networking websites. While many Internet users believe that they are free to say and do as they like while on the Internet, this is untrue and the same defamation laws and regulations stand for online defamation as they do in any form of media.”

    “Mek you point ole man!!

    “The Difficulties With Proving Defamatory Comments”

    Now Blogmaster, I would appreciate if you add your expertise on ISP Policies when you see dat de ole man remarks in whu I copy and paste here are wrong.

    “Much of the difficulty that surrounds successfully winning an online defamation case, notwithstanding the Barbados Computer Misuse Act 20**, is brought about because the plaintiff must (i) first prove who the publisher or writer of the statement is and (2) that the statement is false and written with the intention of causing damage.”

    Now, in another blog here, Amused made oblique reference to the difficulty of authorities going to the Barbados courts and getting a subpoena to force BU to reveal the identity behind the faceless accounts that certain bloggers, not that they have not tried during the reign of Mia Mottley and are not trying during the mismanagement of Adriel Nitwit AG, but there are some issues that besiege their efforts.

    Den dere is the layers of Hosting Servers that them got’s to navigate through in various jurisdictions, and the legal processes in each jurisdiction AND UNLESSING it is a matter of national security fuh de authorities in them jurisdictions, nuffin gine happen…

    “It is certainly possible to find out the details of a computer that was used to publish a statement or post content.”

    However, if (a) it is a PUBLIC computer, then it is almost impossible to narrow down the identity of its user (unless pictures with time stamps, pictures that link the user and the material) are taken by the internet cafe, libraries, businesses, and other public areas where the computer was used or (b) if VPNs (and other tings dat me granson does tell me bout), anonymize de IP pun wunna IPad and cuntputers, authorities will have difficulty affirming that you are the poster

    Now by now, after their cease and desist letters, they understand that the Barbados RBPF, specifically de CID ent no GHCQ so dem now gone to enlist de services uh various local “IT savvy companies” fellow dat pretends dat dem is Cyber Space Dan Gorgons (but Blogmaster you already hardened your WordPress exploits and plugins, you is a boss den)

    Dis is why de ole man (and udders of wunna supersleuths) cant post pun Nation Newspaper and de BLP websites causing dem gots AWStats or Webalizer, Vivianne and Mia and she peeples keeping visitor logs pun wunna scvunts which with GeoMapLookup and LIME tell dem who wunna is and where wunna scvunts live!!!

    The reason that you can post here at BU is (a) he keeps no logs on you (b) he hosts with jurisdictions which don’t give a fart bout Bulbados where the laws concerning ISPs categorically do not considered the ISP to be responsible for the information that their hosted Blogs and their commenters publish online and their courts will not force the ISP or the Blog to remove content from their servers and/or blog and (c) the Blogmaster is driven by “For the cause that lacks assistance, the wrong that needs resistance, for the future in the distance, and the good that (BU) can do…

    Fellers like BarbadosToday, Nation News, De Advocate and de rest uh dem does call dem people at LIME, gi dem you IP and whaplax your troll remarks, your IP address and you ID gone down to Adriel Nitwit!! BU dont do dat shy.te

    So please, don’t join Kellman nor Mia nor none us dese new political groups webshytes, unless you really infiltrating dem site with software dat does exploit dem Enterprise Vulnerabilities. Imagine dat, spying pun de very peeple dat spying pun you!! Whuloss dat is a sting fuh yah!!!

    Oh and dat plea fuh Maxine and de MoFA tuh get up from flying all over de world and intervene with this CE matter is as hopeless as transplanting Usain St. Leo Bolt two footses pun a black mamba with the hope that it will make the fastest, and deadliest, snake in the world, faster.

    I leave wunna wid dis remark from the Electronic Frontier Foundation “”A speaker or writer should be responsible for his or her words. A bookstore or newsstand should not be responsible for the content of what it distributes.” So lawsuits by the Royal Barbados Police Force against Roberts Book Store cause the latter is selling “Boys in Khaki” jes aint going cut it, but wunna can axe Caswell and Jeff Cumberbatch bout dat.

    In a very concise response note that BU is a hosted blog, not self hosted. What this means is that BU operates using WordPress platform, the BU family does not own/manage the database. Anyone seeking to ‘challenge’ a BU blog must do so out of jurisdiction i.e. not Barbados. The process should a party decide to pursue is costly and complex. Do a search of BU archives where we have deal extensively with the matter. Through the years BU has dealt with several concerns raised by those who for different reasons felt hard done by BU and we were able to placate and or repel ALL comers. Note that BU has access to some of the best legal minds and is always well advised in what we do.

    @ Mr. Watchman,

    I have some questions.

    1) What are the rules and regulations about interest bearing accounts and EU grant money?
    2) Is is possible that, while the EU rules expressly forbids CE to have an interest bearing account that First Caribbean International Bank could have had such an inter bank account set up?
    3) Would the EU Delegation and its Commission know or find out about that illegal account?
    4) Is it true that the EU pays the grant money in Foreign Exchange – Euros?
    5) In the time that you were with CEPD/CE agency has any other bank even held this sizeable EU $$ account?
    6) Which Officer from CE managed the relationship with FCIB?
    7) Who was the officer at the FCIB during the time that this foreign currency account existed?
    8) Has that officer ever changed?
    9) What is the maximum interest bearing account that a bank can issue for Foreign Exchange?
    10) Do you know how the tranches that govern the CE/EU contribution/financing agreements were paid? Were they not in 3 tranches? Does that mean roughly $9 Million Euros per payment?
    11) Would $28.3M Euro make any bank compromise EU grant regulations? 10% interest on $28.3M for a CFO/ED beneficiary might cause the bank to forego andy EU regulation.
    12) Would the audits that the CE management conducts, the one that its Board of Directors with National Authorizing Officers members reviewed, and which Caricom Ministers got summary briefs on, discover any of this?
    13) Would the CE immunity from prosecution protect CE and its officer from prosecution if an investigation was initiated?
    14) Since the CE Management has approached the RBPF on this matter do you think that the same Police might be solicited to do investigations when this comes out?
    15) Realistically speaking what are the ramifications of this matter to regional governments?
    16) What are the implications to FCIB if there are copies of the account in someone, other than the bank, and the beneficiary’s possession?
    17) Given the Central Bank of Barbados’ possible? complicity in the Leroy Parris matter and hold money for a citizen, do you think that the CBB would be the best agency to investigate the FCIB entity given these circumstances? Dere ent no controversy wid deFinancial Services Commission is dere??

    De Ole man going stop writing for the time being because Legion tell me dat “I must stop writing lies” but dem is a lot uh questions.

    I wonder if Imgur would tek a few more uploads like these Account Statements?

    @ Watchman

    You said “You mean after the Board Meeting ? I await the outcome , its Xmas, some eggs will be good, even if on the face”

    I understand your imputation regarding (a) the “endorsement” that you impute that the BoD has given its CE Management and (b) that all substantial comments may just disappear

    But here is another perspective for you to consider

    Phase II of the 9th EDF was valued at $6.5M EUs.

    The value of the 10th EDF was $28.3 M EUs which in part translates to at least $2.8M kickbacks

    The value of the 11th EDF to be completed by 2020 to be made available to CARIFORUM for the period 2014-2020 is EUR $346 million of which a potentially there was an indicative
    allocation of EUR 102M proposed for CE ‘s potential administration.

    Imagine that $104 M EUR what is 10% of that?

    Wunna understand what CE management has done across the full spectrum of Regional Development?

    2010 WAS THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE CARIBBEAN that the EU permitted Caribbean nationals to write the technical program that they ultimately funded under the 10th EDF.

    THE FIRST TIME!!

    They had confidence in the competencies of the technical staff at CE, NOT CE’s ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGEMENT, nor the transient NAO/DRAO tiers which change with changing governments and these clowns come along and crush it for personal gain to the eternal sufferation of needy SMEs and CSOs.

    “2.3 If the project/programme cannot be scaled down, or if the overrun cannot be covered either by the Beneficiary’s own resources or other resources, the Commission may, at the Beneficiary’s DULY SUBSTANTIATED REQUEST, decide to grant additional EU financing.”

    Which bring me to the Contingency Funding that Braddie was trying to get, updates pun dat still coming through, de fellahs pun vacation I hear, will report later.

    But jes leh me show you Brutus-esque behaviour on the part of the Executive Director Dr P. Coke Hamilton and CE Management.

    LETTERS OF COMFORT

    I gine brek way from you Watchman, so excuse me manners fuh a few moments.

    @ Brother Bush Tea, now when de ole man say “Letter of Comfort” he ent mean nun uh dem saucy “Hester Prynne/Dimmesdale” letters dat Lawson, and Hants, and my man Walter Blackman may want to infer dat Sister Headley does be sending to de ole man.

    No, I mean dem “Letters of Comfort” – a communication from a party to a contract to the other party that indicates an initial willingness to enter into a contractual obligation absent the elements of a legally enforceable contract. The objective is to create a morally binding but not legally binding assurance.”

    De ones dat de Guvment of Barbados, under de various ministries dem, De Ministry uh Economic Affairs, aided and abetted by dat wuman Maxime McClean at de Ministry of Foreign Affairs wud give tuh de First Caribbean International Bank to say dat “de funding coming from de European Commission peeple”. Like de lettahs dat DownLowe gi Me Clare, Who is you? doah some people say dat he lettahs had in someting bout “i navah get a white meat yet…”

    Back to you Watchman, whu you really saying? De nex ting you gine be alluding to is dat all the millions of Foreign Currency dat FCIB handled fuh Caribbean Export dat dem din count fuh nuffing?….

    No sah !!!! whichin dat is de very point dat I trying to tell you now, bout “tings counting fuh nuffing”.

    Remember, dis is Pamela and Braddie dat we talking bout now, you dun say you know Braddie, dem ent got no heart as Andrea Alleyne did, and Seon Levius soon going, find out.

    Even doah de Guvment uh Barbados giving de FCIB and de nex bank (i gine get tuh dem soon in later correspondence) Letters uh Comfort pun behalf uh de Caribbean Export dat umman, de Executive Director, de same varmint still going tuh Jamaica and telling she guvment dat she gine get de CE agency relocate dere!!

    See how she cutting de Guvment uh Barbadoas throat, de same guvment dat Donville Inniss gone up tuh de Towers and support she and Maxine gone up tuh Babel Towers and talk good tings bout she!!

    You see Brutus stabbings (no not Stabbing Cabin) fuh you doah nuh!! No I wrong Pamela can be a Brutus, dat is anatomically incorrect. She would be a Yael or Jael, de woman in the Book of Judges dat kilt Sisera to deliver Israel from the troops of King Jabin (notwithstanding the ambiguous sex of certain high up politicians who is men dat playing wumen and vicy versy!!

    “Should the EU take such a decision, the excess costs shall be financed, without prejudice to the relevant EU rules and procedures by the release of an additional financial contribution to be set by the Commission….”

    GrandPa Piece, It is Christmas and they’re many arrivals so I am tired every day. With my split shift, the bus, the children, it is rough. That is the Witch Pamela. She gives her word, promises you things, things like securing your job, or giving you another contract, promises you more work, especially if you plan to take her to court, like Allison Saunders did. Once she gets you back off, she stabs you in your back and you don’t even see it. Pamela always has a way of lying without showing it on her face. At a staff meeting she told the staff that she would pay for the “professional development of any staff member, even if it came out of her pocket” She used the example of the IT guy Jermain Hinds to make her point that she was sending him to UTECH. But staff never knew that CE Management deducted every cent from his salary. Why was Mrs Remy King, the HR manager fired? GrandPa, please send the letter for the Dominican Republic office that shows their stance on that subverting of the hiring practices of the CE. People need to see the real Pamela Coke Hamilton and what happened in hiring the Creative Design Manager http://www.carib-export.com/login/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/POSITION%20DESCRIPTION%20-%20%20Manager-%20Creative%20Industries%20and%20Special%20Projects.pdf. Do you have any files from Mrs Remy-King and her report on the friend Olayinka Jacobs-Bonnick from Jamaica, who was to get that job after the process was closed?

    GrandaPa Piece, and talk on the phones, you forgot the phones. People are Pamela all over, it is what people do. Your son is caught speeding, you call a friend to get rid of the ticket.That policeman, if it is someone else’s son, does not rip up the ticket and someone else son go court. CE got a staff attendance book. The receptionist writes who comes to work. If you don’t come to work it is marked sick day. The Executive Director does not go to work. She calls and says that she will be in meetings out the office or sends an email. Call her secretary Wendy Graham. Wendy always has to confirm a date because the ED makes her own appointments. A reasonable response for other bosses who have their own appointment book but go to work. Certain staff at CE are treated differently. Some are permitted to stay home from work and not have it recorded as a sick day. Chris McNair, Gayle Gollop, Roberta Reid, Damien Sorhaindo. Just a few of the ones that get special treatment. Roberta works from home regularly on special assignments, Other staff can’t do that. Damien Sorhaindo regularly is allowed to travel back to his family for two weeks. It is reported that he is working from the Export Development Office in the Dominican Republic.Two weeks vacation in the Dominican Republic which CE pays for. Damien is Chris’ snitch. A few years back Pamela was going to fire Stephanie Bishop the PR advisor. Stephanie had done something bad. She got pregnant. The only reason that she wasn’t fired was because Roberta another snitch was pregnant. CE is not a work environment. It is a war zone where staff are encouraged to carry tales. The reward for snitching is promotions, salary increases, travel and per diem.

    Good morning, I finally catch up wid you.

    This is sad. this situation is much like an organization like the UN focusing on “who is saying what about SG Moon” and loosing sight of the Syrian conflict and how it is threatening all the region, Europe and the world.

    What is the mandate of Caribbean Export?

    They are not a Rum Shop to “fleece collaborating agencies and stakeholders of resources that are to empower SMEs and Coalitions”!!

    Look, in any organization you will find interpersonal issues, as you said, that is life, but you see the piddling behaviour at CE, given the import of the institution to the region, you feel that this should be allowed to continue?

    Let me give you an example of some of the fraud that has now leaked into the broader community, outside of false invoices and kickbacks.

    You can confirm this with the Customs and Excise Department of the GoB. They found out yet, because of that Immunity that Watchman talked about, they did not take any action.

    Ex patriot staff for all agencies resident in BIM are allowed to bring in (i) a personal car (or buy one duty free) and (ii) personal effects.

    McNair brings his in and then proceeds to have CE staff intermingle “other goods and appliances” in their respective (container) allowances. No wonder CE doesn’t have many Bajans on staff, now I am not saying that all non bajans are part of the scam, but Customs Can clearly tell you the ones they suspected.

    This practice of using staff to evade Customs taxes became known internally and caused a serious altercation.

    The man who spoke out against it to the ED and said that it was wrong was Carlos Wharton. Needless to say, for his principles, Pamela and Braddie made sure to get him out of the organization.

    Then in their childish vicious style, they proceeded to blacklist him as he subsequently sought alternative employ.

    Ironically, you may not know this but Carlos, “the stone which the builders rejected”, is now in charge of the very C.R.I.P resources that they are seeking to manhandle from the EU!!

    You fire the man for standing up to your tiefing and he is now your boss!!

    Pamela was livid when she heard how the EU proposed to allocate the 11th EDF resources!!

    Look at life!!

    Pamela, ED Editor, CEO, GM, Chairman and soon to be SG of Caricom (whu it follow dont it??) now has her eyes on Mexico, and the Latin Americas.

    More development suckers/patsies on her “Road to Brazil” or should one say “Rio World Cup Football” as was London 2012.

    It amazes de ole man how easily Pamela just using CE mandate/resources to rack up “frequent Flier miles and go and watch football!!”.

    Ooops I nearly gave up the pending investigation in the frequent Flier Miles for BA and AA.

    Nearly said that “even though the CE management team can hide the paper trail through their shredders and fool the Board of Directors and the Council of Ministers, the only people that they cant MAKE SHUT UP is British Airways AND American Airlines”

    Well here is whu i hear.

    Regarding the amounts of miles racked up over the period of “malfeasance” under which specific staff ( I ent calling no names here) were given “accommodation upgrades”, and Hertz vehicle rentals in jurisdictions NOT RELATED TO Caribbean Export’s mandate. (Where is the “delete” button on this ipad again?? I got to speak to Caswell or De Ingrunt Word bout dis IPad ting)

    Now imagine that you are insisting that because a grant beneficiary’s flight is five hours late because the Airline company has a mechanical fault “you are denying the man one day’s per diem, even though the man is at the airport waiting for the plane to fly” yet you are taking CE frequent Flier miles for you and you missus to go shopping in Miami!!

    See if the 3 uh wunna going get BA and AA to shred dem records!!

    This is such a farce and not a man “Jack” or should I say man “Irwin” as in Irwin LaRocque the Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) ain’t saying a pang!!

    Are there no men with balls left?? Will it take the entry of an International Investigation Agency under their Investigative Policy Priorities (IPP) to pursue a CE investigation?

    Do not CARICOM regulations and Inter-institutional Agreements (and other legal
    instruments relating to the protection of the financial interests of CARICOM Member States) give these men the power to say “look, the charges leveled at CE management and the evidence being provided, necessitates that we act, and act soon lest all of our currency within the international Donor Communities is irretrievably eroded??”

    My points to you still stand.

    1) All of the HQ agreements that CDB and CE have with the GoB the fact remains that neither of the two, nor their Council of Ministers nor the CARICOM member states fund this or rather these agencies.

    2) If the European Union, the IDB, DFID, CanadaFund, GTZ and the rest of these “sucker” international agencies do not loan or provide grants of guilty conscience $$ to said agencies, places like CE dry up!!

    3) What is central to these Articles on Things Fall Apart Caribbean Style is not personal aggrandizement but theft and destruction of the lives of people who speak out about the theft.

    Any woman moving to the heights of the social political and economic achievement is to be admired and respected.

    So names like Margaret Thatcher, Evita Peron, Dame Eugenia Charles, all have their place in the forefront of history but when the Winnies start to kill their rivals with impunity, the Isabellas (the 1st of Spain) cause their rivals to disappear, and the rest of the the Witches of Buchenwaldstart start to do their own thing and silence and kill dissenters, they like their men counterparts, as with Syria’s Bashar al-Hasssad, must go.

    What is the greater good? Can we afford to stand idly by and do nothing so that it can be said Caribbean Export is run by a woman? At the expense of our R.I.Ps and C.R.I.P.S?

    Is this what you are proposing be done with the EUR $28.3 M as she displaces all of the talented and committed staff during her purge to remove any hint of dissent?

    The real question for you is why then keep these persons who do no work (remember is CM and PCH say so not me) and as their immediate supervisor why not find some work form them to do? The auditors need to conduct a resource audit to determine why some persons were hired in the first place.

    Another question to consider, was there a need for a particular skill set in relation to the 5 year RPSDP programme? I think we all know the answer to this given the information that is forth coming.

    On the whole question of staffing issues, I was told that Susan Remy-King would be the ideal person to elaborate on the share dysfunctional nature of man-power management at CE. Imagine a senior manager could go on mission and the night before an important meeting that he is responsible for chairing, he goes on a drinking and whoring binge to the extent that he is unable to attend the very important meeting with several dignitaries in attendance including board members!

    He repeated this sort of indiscretion on several other occasions with several complaints filing in office and at that point Remy-King tried to do her job and reign him in. This of course did not sit well with PCH! Don’t you dare touch her blue-eyed boy! So Remy-King was fired and out the door went her plans to bring some measure of order and decency to the operations of CE.

    How can you manage staff without performance appraisal systems? Misalignment of job descriptions to unit or project objectives, a real mess I tell you. But that is how dem like it! Organised chaos so that they reign in the midst of the madness. The government must act now!

    On the more than 100 occasions that staff members have had to speak about inappropriate or downright tiefing behaviour of either upper management or staff that are favoured by upper management euphemism for being fooled by or snitches for management it ultimately leads to the dismissal of those complainants.

    Elliot Paige who is now suing Caribbean Export has on such matter on his plate.

    During the Executive Director ‘s tummy tuck exercise Paige had suggested that a forensic audit be conducted on Caribbean Export.

    This happened right before the time that the ED went to Jamaica for the op and then to the states after complications arose. Bradshaw was acting Director during her absence

    The office was then in Hastings at the KPMG building.

    Pamela outright refused the audit, a detail Paige shared with the now very vociferous European Union Delegation Ambassador Barfod when Paige was fired who did NOTHING ABOUT THE MATTER

    At any rate the audit required more staff and space that the Hastings office provided so the audit necessitated the rental of space at Weymouth an expense which was not budgeted for but more importantly, with the records in Hastings and the Auditors in Weymouth needless to say the audit was a logistical nightmare.

    This act of a forensic audit was the reason among others including not subscribing to the illegal expenses the ED an CFO Paige was sent fired.

    It is noted that as was with the case between the Barbados Labour Party and Dr Agard the case has also been effectively adjourned

    Good Morning to all. May I wish you all a blessed 2016. It’s a new year and there is an ole saying we must forget the past and start anew. However, I am sure all readers will agree that the information presented about CE are not far fetched but actually true.

    I thought it important to take a break and hear what people were saying before coming back on the air to make you all aware of a few developments. Yes, persons have been calling for a Part Three. Word is that PCH and her crew (i.e McNair) and blind followers seem to have gotten a real big scare after the Board Meeting and the pudding and souse article in December 2015.

    But to show you how real this CE matter is, I need to let you know that Deflon is BACK. Call CE NOW AND ASK FOR HIM. WOW you say. Persons close to Deflon have made no secret of the fact that he openly said that PCH can’t send him home, he got everything in writing with her authorisation. WOW.

    Apparently the whole social media information network got PCH and her management team scratching dem head, running for cover and covering there tracks. No they not shredding information or files, its too late for that, as Pudding and Souse said the Auditors are coming or have they quietly come and gone. Only PCH and her management team and able advisor McNair know.

    What is more absurd is that this bunch of wrong doers continue to show contempt for the EU, GOB, Staff and don’t forget consultants whom they shafted royally and destroyed their business like Christine Ferreria. PCH had intended to send home 4 staff last December 2015, but because of the social commentary in the public domain they suddenly kept these staff members until July 2016. This month is very important, as that is time when the WELL FINALLY RUNS DRY (EU RPSDP – EUR23.8 done for good). Yes, they got the Contingency approved by the EU, so hence they can operate until July 2016. Some would say that this means that all is clear for new funding (11th EDF), but I would not bet my last dollar as the EU is not sleeping and is fully aware of the wrong doings that have taken place. Only time will tell and the final M&E report for the closeout of the RPSDP programme will reveal the truth as PCH cannot create success that did not happen or match the “SUCCESS STORIES” to the EU agreed work plans for the RPSDP programme.

    On another note, PCH and her crew certainly are scared, not only have they sent out their informers to befriend persons to see who is the source of information. Whu losss. PCH is also clearly doing the dog and she clearly wants persons to know dont f..kX with her because she can destroy your life or livelihood. Ask Andrea Alleyene she knows this all too well being blocked for jobs, and imagine she was PCH’s greatest supporter. Did I mention that prior to AA joining CE , PCH brought her from IADB and now has thrown poor AA to the wolves. Again as a woman this is not right and lady like, why prevent people from getting work. What is PCH and managements real motive here? Only PCH and management know.

    PCH has managed to use her pretty face and charm to hood wink all her supporters, but all persons are not as stupid as she thinks because some of these individuals openly talk about how disappointment they are with her and cant understand why she has done or supported all these things mentioned. Lastly, the DR presented to PCH has been public questioned and everyone still cannot believe why she got this title. I am not a hater, but I can certainly name a number of persons on one hand in Barbados and the wider Caribbean that is more deserving based on their contribution to Caribbean development.

I wonder if she was paid severance or even Deflon. I hope they can find it in themselves to pay all employees their severance. Word is that person who were scheduled to go last December would be paid severance. Is anybody out there hearing this or willing to do something about this injustice.

    I believe that the church going and God fearing PCH has an opportunity here to do the right thing and correct all the bad things she herself and management have done and most importantly be fair. For the record she once said that had she been in office when the Elliot Paige matter can to light she would have settled the matter by paying him off, so it would not go to court. I wonder why that was not done. Is she an attorney-at-law?

    Why was she hired in the first place? We she was hired to replace Remy King and try to implement procedures that would always satisfy management. In the beginning the HR Manager pretended to seem that she would have the interest of all staff included Management, but bowy was we wrong. This was a front to extract information during so called ‘get to know you sessions’ conducted by the HR Manager. What is interesting is that on numerous occasions staff personnel like Star Boy who being transferred to the DR office always complained about the HR Manager and what the hell she was doing. To be fair this was the sentiment of all staff initially. Until she got to some of the current staff members who stab their fellow colleagues in the back to save themselves. They know who they are, if you think I lie ask David Gomez, he felt the full weight of these persons, some of whom were hired by him and then they turn around and complain to the ED when he requested work to be done or to complete assignments on time. But What is more unbelievable is that PCH then turn and sell out the very staff that brought the anonymous complaints about DG. These friendly supporting staff then proceed to let DG know they have his back. Well I guess they did, they helped ease the man out and still have their jobs.
    Were performance appraisals conducted? No none were ever conducted up to December 2014. Ask any current or past staff member. But to be fair, prior to her arrival Remy King tried to have this instituted but of course ED and Management were never comfortable with this approach so they now have implemented a more ridiculous system “balance Score Card”. But, here again the HR Manager was found wanting. This came directly from persons in the DR office who worked with a similar organisation that had instituted the said appraisal system.
    Did she have professional integrity? The answer simply “NO”. If she did, she would have taken the time to consult the Employment Laws of Barbados to ensure that persons wrongfully dismissed (i.e. fired, retired, restructuring) staff would be provided an opportunity to be retrained to find new work, job hunting support, recommendations and most importantly severance.
