Former MP jailed in Cuba caused Christie issue a gag order!

the-apolgyHavana, CUBA: A former member of the PLP who often wore three-piece pinstripe suits today is sitting in a Cuban jail looking through iron stripe bars, according to BP’s Cuban informant. The arrest of the MP, who represented the central/eastern area of the island of New Providence, has forced the leader of the PLP to impose a gag order on all members in the party’s parliamentary caucus.

We’ve learned that the MP was indeed also one of three members of the Progressive Liberal Party who was ready to join the governing Free National Movement just after the holidays. Perhaps this is why the Ingraham government is silent on the matter.

Bahamas Press however has spoken to an informant out of Cuba who gave details surrounding the entire Cuban episode. Now one would remember how the MP had once apologized for boarding a plane bound for the United States without clearance. Now again he has found himself again in hot water with another country.

The sunny shores of Havana is a hotbed for Cuban delights and we don’t mean cigars. Yes you guessed it, for female and in this case male prostitutes. It is a place now considered to be second home for thousands of Bahamian men.

Bahamas Press ‘Deep Throat’ is a Cuban translator for visitors.

“Oh I have plenty Bahamian clients,” he said. “Do you know what $100 can get you in Cuba? Ahhhh my friend you would be surprised, thats why they come here.”

Pointing to the situation surrounding this latest development involving the former MP, our informant had this to say.

“This guy is not new to Cuba, his desires have brought him to our country many times before. He is a regular visitor of our island and this last time was no exception.

“Our laws are not like your laws and a sexual encounter with minors, and in this case with young males is an offense in Cuba. A few weeks ago this man you asked us about was arrested in Cuba following a discovery by the Cuban authorities. He had sex with a minor and that is not accepted in our country, although it happens a lot.”

Our informant then began giving details of the evening when the former MP was arrested.christie.jpg

“It was a late evening sting operation and the man had in his room with him an underaged male prostitute. When officers moved in he did not realize that the entire incident was a sting operation and well he got arrested,” the informant said.

Asked whether the former MP will soon be released the informant replied, “Released? You must be kidding? You don’t get out things like that. This is Cuba. He will be fortunate if he gets a trial. There are many Bahamians here. Plenty men from Bahamas who are sitting in Cuban jail right now, and well, he will have to wait until they are ready to release him, if he gets released.”

Bahamas Press has learned that the former MP was studying in London and had returned home for the holidays where he went to Cuba for a weekend visit. All in hopes to return to London before the end of February, however it appears that that return will not happen anytime soon.

We’ve also learned that this is not the only trip of pleasure to the Latin Americas by the former MP. On a trip to Brazil during the Christie administration, the then ‘HOT MP’ took video shots of himself and a prostitute having sex in his hotel room. The MP at the time was joined on the trip by his male pal. And, whilst one would think both went to Brazil to encounter that Brazilian peach, persons close to the MP revealed that the men went from Brazil to Cuba before their final leg journey to Nassau through Miami. The shocking revelation was that the former MP’s friend was married, with a dark side urge for his travelling buddy. Something that makes you go hmmmmmm!

It now looks like the former MP’s days of LUSTFUL singleness has just began, and has now landed him in a pinstriped cell in Cuba filled with men, with no sign of him being released anytime soon.

  1. Agreed Kim, including those who tried to gain political mileage from this case to the detriment of the country.

  2. @WOW!

    WOW! Your point is well taken, but as far as I am concerned about who is innocent or guilty in this case whether it be the ambulance driver, the politicians or all of the above, all decent Bahamians should want to know the truth behind this extortion scheme. This situation was so embarrassing for the country and anyone who participated in this scheme should be blamed and held accountable for their wicked actions.

    @WOW!
    WOW! You have a very interesting theory, but I really can’t see how anyone can blame the ambulance driver for the others involvement. They are not children who are easily manipulated. If someone approach you to do something wrong and you went ahead and do it, I guess you would blame them if you got caught. That’s just like Adam blaming Eve for his sins, that’s how the whole world got in the mess it is in today. By the way, I never said anybody was guilty, that is for the court to decide. All I am saying it is obvious something happened that’s why they were locked up and people need to learn to rethink their actions and learn from their mistakes.

    Kim, I am not absolving anyone of blame. What I am saying is that without the driver and his alleged document, there is no conspiracy for the others to be involved in. He is the only person actually charged with attempted extortion, whereas Pleasant is charged with conspiracy and abetment.

    If you approach me to break the law and I comply, yes I am guilty as well, but am I equally as guilty as the instigator? That is the question that has been plaguing the justice system for a long time. That is why police have to be careful when conducting sting operations. For example, if you ask an undercover officer if he has any drugs for sale, you are locked up. If the same undercover approaches you and ask if you want to buy some drugs, that is entrapment and you will walk free.

  5. I must say that this decline of a comment by Mr.Ron who over the years never pass up a camera or mike is not normal.Im sure that ET would have address this matter if he was free to do so.

    Really? That is great news for him and his family. I am sure he would be so happy to be released from Fox Hell Prison. I am even a little happy for him too, considering the rest were walking around out on bail a long time ago, I guess that‘s when you have the money. Anyway that’s good he is finally getting bail, because I felt that bail was set too high to begin with, it was not as if he had murdered someone or was found with drugs. I hope while he was sitting in his prison cell, he had time to think about his poor judgment and his behaviour in all of this.

    Kim, others may have been out on bail a long time ago, but the driver is the main focus of the case. Without him, the “others” would not even be involved. That being said, I still subscribe to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

  7. call it as I see it :

    WOW! :

    Wisdom :Objective thought, If the ambulance driver knows what is good for him, he would stay under the state protection (FOX HILL). The direction this town is going, he could be “SIX FEET UNDER” in a month.[Reply]

    Wisdom I don’t know about that. In HMP is even more dangerous and it maybe easier to take out a “hit” in there. Also, if the Government has any interest in the outcome of this case, it would be easier for them to “influence” him while in custody.
    [Reply]

    Exactly why would the government have an interest in this case and why would they want to influence him??? Pray tell WOW!
    [Reply]

    Call it, I was not making any accusations, I was just expanding on Wisdom’s point as to whether the driver is better off in jail or out on bail.

  9. Objective thought, I think the dead son of the actor was highly insured, and funds will not be paid out pending the out come of the ambulance driver’s evidence. It must be something substantial. Or it could have been a murder. That is my gut feeling.

  10. I heard on the news today that the ambulance driver will not have to go back to court to try to get a reduction in his sentence because persons have signed his bail… He is going to be released shortly if he hasn’t already…

    WOW, it is harder to “hit” in HMP, too many questions to answer if it happens in their custody.
    [Reply]

    Wisdom, if anything shady were to go down, I don’t think it would be a “hit” anyway. Now trying to influence the young man’s testimony and exactly how much blame he rests on other persons, that I can see.

  15. I will start by saying once again, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. But if this story is so true, how come all the media outlets have been reporting this story for weeks, but none has the b*lls to call his name?

  16. Hey

    I find it interesting that none of you have questioned the validity of the story – How do we know if pinstripe is incarcerated and for the charges as suggested?
    BP how certain are you and do you have anything better than deep throat as a means of confirming this story?

  17. Objective thought, If the ambulance driver knows what is good for him, he would stay under the state protection (FOX HILL). The direction this town is going, he could be “SIX FEET UNDER” in a month.

  18. I believe you BP and this is a bunch of nastiness for sure. Plenty sissy men around this place and I guess he was on the DL so he took his sissy ways to Havana. I have no sympathy for him. I hope the rest of them who go over there sissying get arrested to.

  19. Objective Thought you are definitely right, I forgot the judge had given him that outrageous bail of $50,000 that they knew he or his family may not have been able to come up with….lol…..

  20. Kim Sands :Well if this informant is telling the truth, I am just happy it happened over there in Cuba and not here. If it had happened here this would have been another thing that would have been swept under the rug. It is just wrong the things these people of prestige are allowed to get away with in this country. What bothers me with the recent extortion situation, is why everybody else who they claimed was involved in the scheme walking around out on bail, except the ambulance driver. The law in this little country of ours is so unfair, that these people in position really believe they are above it. Anyway now they taking their criminal activities to a new level, they gone international now! Now this is where they have started walking a very dangerous line.

    The ambulance driver was given bail too but he just can’t pay it or find someone to pay it… He has a bail hearing coming up though. His lawyer is trying to get his bail reduced…. Just in case you didn’t know..

  22. call the beast by name,and if it’s not the beast that you named then that person who was named should be able to file a law suit.If not then let the chips fall where they may.

  23. R.P. :
    Well we probably won’t know about the transition from PLP to FNM for sure. Then again unlike Hon. Kenyatta Gibson, perhaps this former MP decided to take a closed door avenue, orchestrating something more diginifyable to the PLP and Rt. Hon. Perry Christie.
    As this person was still a former MP of the PLP, the public, regardless of which side you are one will attach him to the PLP. And they don’t know how to handle this, because the person cannot be released to even deny what has happened. So in their silence, they are relying on our long term memory loss that this will just fade away.

    Or this could simply be another piece of cheap, poorly written fiction. I did have a good laugh at this one. We’re supposed to go on a supposed conversation between BP and his supposed translator? Gimme a break. Next time, BP, why don’t you just record your guy talking and leave it for us to decide what to believe. I thought you had something concrete man.

  24. Boy! we get some freaky people who like to mix up in politics in this country. No wonder why we cannot combat the crime situation in this country, when you have people who used to hold such a high position in the country creeping around with underage boys. While I like the work he was doing with the garbage, something just was not right with them striped suits he used to like to wear. Now he must be in dog heaven with all those vertical bars and men all around him. This whole thing is very nasty and disturbing.

  26. Two things stands out here, If pinstripe was about to join the F.N.M, why would Perry care and order a gag on his members? This would have no longer been a P.L.P issue but rather an F.N.M problem.

    Secondly, why did pinstripe not make his crossover announcement immediately after his return from London. He was home in December and for most of January, the news of his arrest did not surface until late January early February. He had sufficient time to change make any announcement.

    Did pinstripe really intend to join the F.N.M or did Perry convince him otherwise, hence the gag????? Just some interesting observations.
