    Want to know how so many guns and ammunition getting into Barbados? Follow the dots. Information on the salaries of customs officers is readily available. Any inheritance they might have obtained from Colonel Gadafi, Pol Pot or Nelson Rockefeller can be traced. If they did not get money from these or other departed souls, then some explanation must be found as to how some in the service can have three and four sets of apartments, and in the case of the retired CH – SIX. And while those dots are being followed, maybe someone can start checking to find if there is a pattern to the granting of bail to murder accused. Is it the same individual(s) doing so? Check their status too. Here’s to celebrating our 50th year of Independence.

    This dude Justice Worrell has a very bad reputation on the bench, why is Chief Justice Marston Gison npt doing something about him, every country has provisions to get rid of bad judges from the judiciary….why does Barbados always have to be the exception to the rule of getting rid of their destructive forces.

    No child support case should be dragging through a court system for 8 and 10 years till the child turns adult.

    Something is very wrong in a court system which allows this travesty to happen.

    BTW…Fruendel speaks on Hyatt, gptta watch his slimy, stealthy, slug-like moves very carefully, to see when he changes direction suddenly, if ya take ya eyes off him, none of these slaves in parliament can be trusted…Inniss and Maloney said it was a done deal, now after the huge outcry, Fruendel says different. ….shades of Cahill.

    @David. Well done. But I am not sure that this is a complete list. I will ask members of the fraternity to cast an eye over it and comment. BUT, it is only a part of the picture. It would be interesting if your source has the time and access to list the number of cases, dates filed and dates on which readiness to proceed to trial was filed that are still waiting to commence hearing, have commenced hearing and are adjourned part-heard etc. That would in some measure reveal the true horror of the breakdown in the justice system.

    Re your post above, when I was much younger, imported spirits used to come out of the sea by North Point. It is not, I imagine, complicated to get arms into Barbados, as it is an island and there is not really any aggressive attempts to patrol the waters and prevent it – but that lack goes back many decades. High time something was done about it. As for the granting of bail, well I am not too sure if that can be out down to any pattern by the courts. After all, how long can anyone be held on remand without trial without breaching their human and constitutional rights? Therefore, the problem does not devolve on the courts necessarily, but on the DPP and the Police.

    Unlike a civil case, a criminal case is tried by a jury. It is actually a very soft option for the judge, as all (s)he has to do is to be a referee. A criminal case has also to be evidence-led and decided, not on a balance of probabilities, but beyond a reasonable doubt. Yes, the judge delivers a summation and guidance to the jury, but that is a summation of evidence and guidance as to what the jury’s options are in law. And then it is down to the jury. The judge’s sole remaining job, if the accused is convicted by the jury, is to interpret the sentencing guidelines, which also does not require any high-powered legal thought. You take a criminal law judge and put them into trying civil cases and you soon find out that they really have not got a clue about any other area of law, whereas you take a civil judge and assign them a criminal case and they have no problem at all, as it is like a holiday for them.

    It is for that reason that I always questioned right from the start the appointment of Justice Randall Worrell to the Bench where judges are required to be able to deal with both criminal and civil – and we have all seen the results – he is not only completely out of his depth, but now has dug himself so deep into the doodoo that there are at least half a dozen civil cases where, if a formal complaint is made, he might be found guilty of misconduct and given the option of resignation or dismissal. I have not sat in on any of his criminal trials and, relying solely on press reports and rumour (which are extremely unreliable at best – and I hasten to say that) have, in the back of my mind, speculated as to whether or not he always applies the sentencing guidelines in a manner consistent with public good. He was primarily a criminal defence attorney and I may be wrong, but I seriously question whether he does not allow this to inform his sentencing. Sure those sentences can be appealed, but it is a very expensive and time-consuming process, particularly as the expense falls on the taxpayer, both in terms of prosecution and legal aid. In my view, resignation or removal would likely be appropriate sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, we will have to wait to see if anyone with a civil case he has dealt with will sue him under the Constitution or at least file a formal complaint with the CJ and PM. I hope someone does, sooner rather than later.

    The weave that is tangled is one that you have to follow a distinct pattern to find the various ends before the untangling process can take place. Various agencies in Barbados have operatives, known or unknown, interconnected to serve interests that are operating in secret. The judiciary is in a sham, if not a scam, to ensure that certain ‘high-powered’ money persons will never see the inside of a court, only poor, hungry mout people. The message it sends is that all politicians and individuals of social status are respectful of the law and do no wrong. Corruption and all other crimes are carried out by persons below this grouping. Therefore, if the govenment salaries are enough for custom officials to build several apartments, no one would have to call them to account. However, if it is not, why are these persons not investigated. And, please do not tell me that the apartments are not in the specific individuals name, there are ways and means of tracking and tracing who the real owners are.

    Amused…I don’t know what the problem is apart from self-serving, but apparently some criminal lawyers also have problems representing civil cases, particularly personal injury, they can never seem to get it right for their clients…the injured claimants.

    That also, by the way, puts pressure on the judges..who actually know what they are doing and are trying to be fair to both sides.

    “Corruption and all other crimes are carried out by persons below this grouping.”

    SSS….now that is publicly revealed that ALL who are in public positions and positions of power are the easiest to use, because they are greedy….they are owned by, become SLAVES to, are compromised and cannot say NO to those who OWN them….from the moment they accept that first bribe….drugs, guns, humans, money laundering in and out if the island happens at will…they were bought and paid for so they cintinue to sell their services.

    Once the parliament becomes compromised…the leaders are owned by the same group of minorities for decades now. ..the only turning back is for them to cut ties with the minorities…if they want to save themselves and the country.

    @SSS. While I do not necessarily agree with all you have said, I would point out that the Registrar (only nominally) has the task, under the instructions and directions of the CJ, of assigning cases to judges. In reality, the assignments are solely decided by the CJ. Once a judge is assigned and date of hearing set, then the matter becomes the sole province of that judge. That judge has the right and authority with which neither Registrar nor CJ can interfere to adjourn a cases to a specific date and the Registrar then must, but often fails to, list the case for that date. Unfortunately, most judges, like Worrell J., chose to adjourn sine die, that is without a specified date to continue – and so cases remain part-heard ad infinitum in breach of the Constitution.

    I cannot possibly defend against your accusation of double standards, because it is all too evidently true. If the case is high profile or big-ups involved, then you can expect it to be heard very quickly, or not depending on what is desired, not by law, but by agenda. So, I have to say that you are right.

    @David. To be honest, I find the situation with the courts so depressing and disheartening that absolutely nothing would surprise me. Simmons to Gibson. Well, at least Simmons was always an excellent jurist, so “out of the frying pan into the fire” is not completely apt, but you get the picture.

    @Well well. It is extremely silly for criminal lawyers to undertake PI cases. They simply do not have the expertise. In our larger common law countries, like Canada, the UK, the States, Oz and NZ, there are entire law firms whose sole function is PI cases and among those some specialise in plaintiff and others in defendant and most plaintiff firms do it “no win no fee”. It is a highly work-intensive and specialised area of law. For a criminal attorney to jump in simply because they can charge fees and undertake this kind of work is, frankly, little short of ……well, never mind. And for any PI client to place their case and trust into the hands of a criminal is beyond stupid and, frankly, they deserve everything that happens.

    Amused…..Judges who do this should be immediately and permanently kicked off the bench…since it’s quite obvious that only some type of bribery would cause a judge to so blatantly violate a constitution. ..particularly if he/she knows that the plaintiff/defendant does not have to resources or knowledge to go after the judge’s slimy ass for disenfranching or disadvantagjng them….

    ……does the chief justice not monitor each indivudial case to see that they are not being compromised and that they are brought to a fair, balanced and TIMELY conclusion.

    As Justice Gibson is well aware, that is standard operating procedure for Chief Judges in the US….monitor every case handed to a judge.

    David Simmons would not have been expected to do it during his tenure because of his corrupt involvement in many of the cases, but this current CJ…knows it’s his job, particularly because of the well known corrupt actions of his predecessor. ..Simmons.

    Lol…you are so right Amused…but there are no boundaries set on the island for anything…..a real estate attorney does not take on criminal cases…because he is not a criminal attorney..there are plaintiff’s attorneys and defense attorneys….as I know it, everything in the legal discipline of law….is nicely compartmentalized..in the bigger countries.

    But not in the legal sector in Barbados…it’s all mix up, mix up and incestous….the bar association and disciplinary committee, those two again, need to raise the bar and set higher standards….because it seems…most clients in Barbados. .do not know the difference between one attorney or tgphe other and their specialties. …those 2 entities need to sanction with big fines attorneys who take cases from clients they know are outside their soevialties and skills.

    Attorneys should have higher moral codes, knowing the client is not aware…and tell the client that they are not trained to do the case, but the attorneys allow their greed, particularly if they are aligned with the defending side to sell out tge case, arrogance and stupidly inflated egos…get in the way.

    Same thing I been saying about the doctors on the island, case in point…a claimant with nerve damage was told by the dumbass attirney that the defense wanted to send the claimant to this orthopedist fir examination, the claimant said hell no, I have no orthopedic injuries, my injuries are nerve and muscle damage…let them bring a neurologist.

    It turned into a fight, the claimant got nasty, particularly after finding out that not only was the orthopedist a surgeon, information kept from the claimant by the attorney, but she, the doctor had only been practicing in Barbados one year…at that time…. and that the rotten cow….also worked for the insurance company…at their Bayview Hospital……so the claimant told the judge and shocked not only their attorney, but also the defending attorney, the judge asked the defense to produce an affidavit stating WHY the claimant needed to be examined by an orthopedic surgeon when the claimant has neurological problems…of course no affidavit was filed…

    …that one turned out well because the claimant was legally savvy…and well aware that there are different medical disciplines and specialties and there should be no crossover in specialties, even when the claimant’s attorneys and doctors are being bribed by the insurance company,….

    The claimant after taping the attorney talking crap, eventually got back the file and a new attorney.

    So, neither the BAMP nor bar association, disciplinary committee are setting boundaries for their lawyers and doctors. …I will tell you what the claimant said will happen to that tape whenever they wake up in a pissy mood one day…another time for that. ..lol

    @Well well. In our and the UK’s system, a judge has absolute autonomy in his/her court and anyone, including the CJ, who tries to interfere can face serious consequences. However, if it comes to light that the judge is guilty of gross misconduct, then, upon the advice of the CJ in the case of a judge, or of the PM in the case of the CJ, the GG can step in and suspend the judge, pending a commission. Naturally, as the delay would breach the litigants’ constitutional rights…… In law, therefore, DS could not interfere. In practice, it would be defamatory if I said that he did and so I pass as I frankly do not have any solid evidence to show that he did.

    As for a sine die adjournment, I have never agreed with these. The judge should set a date. If it turns out later that the date will not work for either side or both, this ought to be the subject of a written motion before the judge (heard by telephone as in Canada) where each side can present their case. Then the judge can adjourn sine die, but only until the judges clerk contacts both sides and agrees a continuation date, which should never take longer than two weeks. I mean, in these days of e-mail and fax, any further delay is a complete nonsense. So, except as I have said, you are, as usual, absolutely right!

    I do want to comment briefly on the removal of a judge or the CJ. It appears to me that judges in Barbados, despite the Constitution, have come to the unshakeable view that their removal cannot and will not happen. Unless and until an example is made of one or more of these fools soon – and there are abundant grounds for that to happen – this misapprehension will continue and we, the general public, will continue to suffer, along with our foreign investments, putting our families and children at disadvantage and risk. My choice of judges to be dismissed are the CJ and Worrell J. Those are the two most egregious and prolific offenders. Get rid of them and watch the others fall in line. After all, it may be their asses on the line next.

    And there in lies the problem Amused…the politicians and government ministers take the same arrogant stance,

    ” in our and the UK’s system, a judge has absolute autonomy in his/her court and anyone, including the CJ, who tries to interfere can face serious consequences.

    And this is why…….if the CJs hands are tied, how can he/she stop these travesties.

    But…in the UK and Canada…the judges ARE disciplined and thrown off the bench, the lawyers ARE disbarred, the corrupt doctors are de-registered. ..using their same procedures and the constitution…and evidence is ALWAYS found.

    So who burned that memo or that part of the Constitution, rules and procedures in Barbados that would enable the CJ and others to stop judges, lawyers and doctors who are not holding higher standards…who makes it sound and look hopeless for claimants and plaintiffs/defendants to get justice in Barbsdos….who is condoning and enabling corrupt practices in the judiciary with no consequences and no way to stop it.

    @Well well and Bushie. I am able to be privy to things that maybe you are not, in certain areas at least. My sense (or it may turn out to be nonsense) is that there is a major rumbling in the jungle. More than that I cannot say because I don’t have specifics, but I would hold strain a little, if I were you, and just observe. As I said, my instincts and experience could be way off target, but do you not find it interesting and instructive that BU’s crusade to sort out the judiciary and the BA has suddenly become a big talking point for our “leaders” and their “opposition” all these years after BU started the ball rolling? Without in any way referring to or crediting BU, of course.

    It is simple common sense, not rocket science, that the judicial system is almost single-handedly responsible for the demise of our foreign and off-shore investments. The executive (whether D or B) is often accused (whether with cause of not) of enriching themselves. BUT, when the cupboard is bare, then it needs to be re-stocked and Heaven help a judiciary that is standing in the way of that restocking. Remember, we are not T&T or Venezuela – we have no natural resources. We have to rely on the very insecure means of tourism and foreign and off-shore investments. Our real estate market generally and to foreign buyers is down the toilet as well as a direct result of the judicial system blocking investment. I firmly believe that the executive and opposition now realise the immediate need for an enema to be applied to the judicial system and, when it comes to money in people’s pocket, do you seriously think that our masters are going to cry anything but crocodile tears when putting down any friend’s son? Get real!!! I can hear it now, “Well you know I told the others that they couldn’t do that to you, but I was outvoted….etc. etc.” Familiar???!!!!

    GP…but the insurance companies, too many doctors and lawyers in Barbados do not do things in an honest transparent way, they are dishonest and try to make sure the injured client is not paid, by presenting lies and inaccurate information to the judge.

    Many claimants on the island do not know that there are several disciplines in medicines with different specialties and go to any doctor the insurance company sends them to without doing research….and end up being sent to a doctor being bribed by the insurance company to write a false edical report….they know the judge is not a doctor …and would not know the difference.

    That is why the claimant had to make sure that the judge not only knew what they were planning but put a stop to it since it was clear that the claimant’s attorney at the time was colluding to take bribes in the case.

    This particular insurance company, should have filed the Affidavit, which would have forced the claimant to attend the doctor of their choice……but could not, because they were going to bribe the doctor they thought the claimant did not know worked for them…….to tell lies on the medical report…which would have successfully ruined the claimant’s case.

    They, in contrast, loved the reports of the specialists, which were longed winded reports like what med students wrote when they first started to see patients with lots of NO THIS NO THAT NO THE OTHER when none of these things would /should be expected.

    GP…these days on Barbados the only option claimants have would be to let the specialists with the crap know, that if the report is not accurate, contain lies , they will expose them to the judge and on social media…that’s the only way you, as a claimant, is likely to get an honest and not fraydulent medical report, apparently, some of these specialists’ only intent…is to get wealthy off claimant’s injuries and suffering…they are bottomfeeders.

    As a GP telling the truth about claimant’s injuries, they would not want anything to do with you, it means they have to pay the injured claimants, exactly what they would commit any crime and pay any bribe to avoid.

    Hence the reasons they are ALL being exposed now.

    when you gave injured folk sick leave, if they had insurance from ALICO etc they would send up folk from Trinidad investigating

    once they did that to me and I told the patient’s insurance agent and the chap informed immigration that there was this Trinidadian coming up to Barbados working without a work permit and immigration stopped him

    Lol….GP….the AGs office and the government have to put a stop to the way things are being done by the insurance industry , the way they use the judiciary to destroy people’s lives, if they continue to allow this travesty to continue…they themselves will pay the price when the people have had enough.

    It’s been over 2 decades the insurance companies have been allowed to destroy people on the island, with no one in government or the judiciary doing anything to stop the trend.

    WELL WELL
    20 YEARS AGO THE SUPERVISOR OF INSURANCE STARTED TO GO AFTER DRS WHO GAVE INJURED FOLK SICK LEAVE. BUT HE CAME UP AGAINST DRS WHO HAD KEPT GOOD RECORDS

    HE HAD A WITCH HUNT TRYING TO DETERMINE IF SUCK FOLK HAD SICK LEAVE FOR AN INORDINATE AMOUNT OF TIME

    ANOTHER THING I FOUND THEN WAS THAT INSURANCE COMPANIES SEEMED TO THINK THAT FOLK WITH WHIP LASH INJURIES HAD TO WALK AROUND WITH THEIR NECKS IN A COLLAR YET THEY WERE NOT EXPECTED TO HAVE SICK LEAVE

    I HAD A VERY GOOD ARTICLE ABOUT THIS AND I WOULD SEND A COPY OF IT TO MY PATIENTS LAWYERS.

    What should we expect? The judges jump into the court without proper training. In other countries you learn before the call to the bar how to draft a decision of the supreme court and how to act as a judge. Just the opposite on this island: Marston Gibson for instance was a family lawyer in foreign legal system, not a court manager before he got his job.

    And again: The supreme court is a political institution with all the fallout. Simply look at the political background of the last appointments … There are many top-jurists in Bim with international qualification and experience and with other merits. Given the current system, they will never ever have a chance to slip into the SC.

    Here is my neanderthal viewpoint in pictures which is worth they say 1000 words.

    And yes I could have put in the GG and excluded Stinkliar but my point is very simple.

    The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step and the first step that can be logically taken in this misery is to remove these effers from the equation.

    Now one acknowledges that when the one goes that the other may not be any better since, during all these years, they have consistently shown themselves to be the very same thing we wish to get rid of.

    Bit the facts remain that we cannot go forward with the current DLP swine

    POINT ONE: After many years of legal training and experience, certain judges are still deemed utterly incompetent to serve on the bench.
    POINT TWO: More than a few criminal court judges will struggle if they are assigned to a complex civil case
    POINT THREE: Courts throughout the Caribbean are unable to keep up with their caseloads and CJs from Jamaica to Belize keep making public appeals for the appointment of more judges and magistrates.
    POINT FOUR: Legal superstars on the bench (David Simmons) or in the private sector make a killing every year, harvesting fabulous sums in compensation from bankrupt governments and nearly destitute private sector clients.

    These are all signs and symptoms of a stratified legal system that does not meet the needs of the ( still unsophisticated) people of our region. The resolution of disputes should be predictable, timely, understandable, and inexpensive. The process should allow the disputants to PARTICIPATE meaningfully in the decisions reached, instead of being relegated to the role of silent bystanders to esoteric arguments among legal specialists. And if the legal process is so complicated that even many lawyers and judges cannot fully understand it, and therefore stand accused of incompetence, then the system IS the problem.

    @ The Honourable Blogmaster

    I read your submission of 1.52 and there are a couple of thing that the ole man would like to mention…AGAIN!!!

    It is noted that the mainstream media like the Nation and the Barbados Today and to a lesser degree the Advocate, has taken to “including topical materials” RATHER materials which are or have been featured on Barbados Underground to fuel their readership.

    Additionally, Roy Morris himself, a man falsely? accused of “overzealousness in his viagra-esque endeavours” armed with a 9 millimeter, has now taken on the visage of a Saul at Damascus.

    Nothing is wrong with this conversion at all, in fact we all should have our Damascene moments and the earlier the better since the outcome will be a better society.

    But, one notes that his interventions stop very short of the mark in two areas

    They in general and Roy in particular do not initiate any scholarly article that is contentious at any time read their is little investigative reporting at these institutions.

    And the second item is rather deceitful. Let me explain.

    Roy is now in the public domain prosecuting a matter that dates from 2006 FOR WHICH ALL OF THE NAMES OF THE PARTIES ARE KNOWN, including the said DS.

    All of the names of the defendants in this matter are a matter of public record that is to say their names are on the affidavits etc.

    For Roy to come out and to say all the names of the parties, such cannot incur any defamation charges since the matter is well ventilated so it would seem to the ole man that Roy has adopted a quasi Naked Departure offering insofar as he is dangling something potentially explosive in the dark and is obviously afraid to expose it.

    So Roy is neither “cold nor warm” since he is clearly treading the line not to mention “the name of the relative of the Minister’s Son who repairs cars every day out by DS”

    Is this the tip of the iceberg that we are seeing and the birthing of a new dispensation of disclosure by the regular media?

    I think not, Roy only trying to sell newspapers while pretending to be on the cutting edge of reporting.

    Speaking of reporting ….

    De ole man is quite disturbed about the Uncle lookup awards for the Media earlier this week

    I was not invited.

    Were you?

    Whu after all de ole man does publish heah I feel dat me, and you, and Colonel Buggy, and SSS, cud have received an “honourary invite”

    Whu you tink?

    “10 years and nine months Nineteen months later he has not heard back from the court. Ten years and nine months, four magistrates, one judge, nine prosecutors and three lawyers later, after being charged for a drug offence DS is still waiting to clear his name. He remains suspended on half pay, all of which goes directly to the City of Bridgetown Credit Union to satisfy his mortgage and car loan [which he had to be renegotiate to avoid losing], while depending on a generous neighbour who offers him one meal a day and occasionally valeting cars and doing other odd jobs to make ends meet.

    “I still lay on my bed and cry,” he said. “This can’t be fair. I have ulcers and can’t afford to eat the way the doctor told me to. I am sure if this case had been heard I would have been found not guilty… but all this time it just dragging on and on and dragging me down and down. But the man who import the engine living good because of his connections.” – See more at: http://www.nationnews.com/nationnews/news/87114/public-purge-dead-weight#sthash.MiPfT1HR.8E3EjZbl.dpuf

    That is just plain wicked, malicious and unfair to this man.

    But that is what they do to delay cases in the courts for decades, the insurance companies are worse, the defendant’s lawyer tells the judge they cannot find the defendant driver, but if you call the transport board or wherever the drivers work, the drivers still works there.

    The lawyer tells the judge that because they could not find the driver they had to forge a witness statement for the driver filled with lies, which the lawyer signs his or herself…which is really forgery and fraud, unfair to the plaintiff and should never be admitted as evidence…..and this happens in Barbados in the supreme court.

    Belgrave and Lindsay Worrell were magistrates together in the Main Guard in the late sixties. I thought Randal was advised to do some studying in Civil law when he was appointed to the bench. At that time his weakness was delayed judgments.
