In the Baha Mar Court case Friday, the Court struck down the Winding Up Petition filed by the AG in July, ruling that her petition did not comply with the law. The Judge also rejected her petition’s claim that winding up Baha Mar was in the public’s interest. Now, our Constitution says the AG is supposed to be acting in OUR interests. What answer does the Government of The Bahamas have for us after they have interfered in Baha Mar, added further threat and delay to the development, complicated the careers of thousands of Bahamians, threatened our economy, caused our credit to get downgraded – ALL WITH A PETITION THAT THE JUDGE SAYS DID NOT EVEN COMPLY WITH THE LAW OF THE BAHAMAS. The government MUST account to The Bahamian people for this.
THE SUPREME COURT TODAY THREW OUT THE GOVERNMENT’S WINDING UP PETITION FILED IN JULY, RULING THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S PETITION DID NOT COMPLY WITH BAHAMIAN LAW. SINCE THE SUPREME COURT DECIDED NOT TO WIND UP (LIQUIDATE) BAHA MAR TODAY, and instead decided to adjourn the matter until the first week of November to give the sides time to make certain decisions – I have a question. Can we expect that between now and the first week of November (PLP Convention week), the government will announce that it is satisfied, after a review by its provisional liquidators (WHO THE COURT BLOCKED FROM BEING ABLE TO REMOVE IZMIRLIAN OR LIQUIDATE THE ASSETS), that the developers of Baha Mar will be able to complete the project and get it open “for the good of all Bahamians”, and that liquidation won’t be necessary anymore – hence an attempt to politically erase the gross error of their ways in this matter? #WeSeeYou #EpicFail
You already know what my message to you is. Today’s ruling was not unexpected at all, and I will limit my commentary on that specific issue there for now. In the meantime, don’t become dismayed by the gross and shameless media bias and ignorance in this matter, or by the government’s propaganda or by the widespread political games being played in our country at the nation’s expense. All of us with eyes and a working mind are seeing who is who and what is what. All is not lost and it’s not over yet. #RidingForYou Continue reading
