Nassau, Bahamas — They believed they could just squander the people’s money and get away with it. They all thought spending money on themselves and for their friends would go unnoticed. They must think we’re stupid. Well, your Bahamas Press caught them in the act, and we are not stopping just yet.
The Prime Minister we know has cancelled NIB’s lavish executive trip to the Abacos as he has commenced his own probing into the Board’s spending splurge.
Bahamas Press has learned this decision is not going down well with executives who to this day still have their bags packed with the thought of the Abaco Club at Winding Bay dancing in their heads.
NIB’s Director Algernon Cargill we know had already ordered his five–day supply of expensive Fiji water. The special supply retails in Nassau for $3.85 per 8oz bottle. Gee, He could have purchased a 5 gal bottle of Chelsea’s Choice or Bahama Clear for that price.
However, we have another SHOCKING REVELATION coming out of the National Insurance Board. We told you of the Board’s ‘Vicked’ rejection to approve benefits entitled to citizens who are now leaning on NIB for their survival. We told you how hundreds of claims have racked up in the REJECTION/DECLINED box at NIB while Cargill and the Board< /span> issue and spend money on themselves and their cronies like its going out of style.
Bahamas Press has attained a copy of such communication between the Boca Neurology medical facility and NIB. The document confirms NIB’s refusal to pay the facility for medical services delivered to a patient, Patrick Moss, who has incurred medical challenges.
Moss had been a patient of Dr. Harold C. Friend MD at the facility since September 2nd this year. We’ve learned in an agreement with NIB, Friend carried out medical services on Moss but has yet to be compensated by National Insurance.
In a letter Dated December 3rd, 2009, Dr. Friend wrote NIB the following letter:
Moss we know will not be welcomed at the facility unless he comes up with cash payments for his medical visits.
Bahamas Press cannot imagine the untold level of stress this is now taking on a man already ill. We ask again, how can NIB find the time and the money to sign thousands of dollars worth in contracts to the “Buffed Roommate” of Cabinet Minister Kenneth Russell. Find thousand of dollars to pay mobilization fees to an FNM crony Porky Dorsett who we discovered owed National Insurance. Pay Charlton Morley from A-1 Security more than $24,000 per month to put one security officer at the gate for 12 hours at the abandon Buena Vista property. And pay Jeffery Lloyd $7,000 per session for 23 sessions, yet, it cannot find money to pay sick benefits for its clients the people< /span> of the Bahamas?
We demand a public commission to investigate the SCANDALOUS OPERATIONS at NIB. INCLUDING THE CONTRACTS TO KENUTH KNOWLES, PORKY DORSETT, IRAM LEWIS, CHARLTON MORLEY AND JEFFERY LLOYD , just to name a few. We call for this Commission to possess powers to prosecute; to send for people and papers to sit from place to place and stop the hemorrhage of funds at the nation’s social security institute.
As we said before, Cargill seems to possess the pernicious greed to splurging public funds for his own gluttonous desires of fun and frolic and to delight the deep pockets of strange acquaintances, whilst the poor and desperate cannot get payments on their legitimate benefits.
Bahamas Press’ probe into NIB will continue.
