Nassau, Bahamas — No it was not because he called the people of Elizabeth GREEDY, which caused Duane Sands to decline debating on the JCN network, but it could be some new information coming into our desk late yesterday.
Breaking news from our forensic legal team in the US confirms that it is possible Sands is not just a holder of a Green Card, but spelt out more facts that he also hid his assets from a court in Michigan.
Sands in a case before the court where his first wife was seeking a divorce is said to show he had hidden assets during the primary trial period.
Information gathered by BP confirms the case was Sands v. Sands, and became Michigan landmark case involving hidden assets.
When assets were found after the trial, the court reconsidered the property division at a new partial trial. The Michigan appellate court awarded the plaintiff all the found assets. The Supreme Court then affirmed the judgment for Mrs. Sands. Nevertheless, it cautioned that in each individual divorce case the circuit court must equitably divide the assets.
Bahamas Press has the great RUSTY NAIL, which will now be driven into the wooden FNM coffin. This week is Ash Wednesday and boy we see ashes all over the torch.
The case proved one thing about this character now in Elizabeth seeking to become the representative voice for the constituency and that is Sands loves to hide, duck and not speak.
- 1) He delayed on revealing what is his list of total contracts he has with the government of the Bahamas.
- 2) He’s has failed to declare those lists of contract he now engages with the government.
- 3) He failed to confirm or deny whether he is a holder of an American Green Card. BP confirms he is a holder of such a card, which gives him the rights and privileges as an American citizen.
- 4) And Sands has refused to tell the residents of Lizzy why has he saw it not fit to discuss the issues on live TV with other candidates.
- 5) And now Bahamas Press has discovered Duane Sands hid assets from the court of law in the United States during the separation battle with his first wife.
Why is Sands continuing to cover–up everything when he knows public life requires full disclosure on these matters and more? What else could Sands be hiding from the public?
Here is therefore the just reason why the people of Elizabeth cannot TURST DUANE SANDS as the elected representative. He has refused to be forthcoming in all his dealing with the people of the constituency even when the Tribune recorded him as calling the people of Elizabeth GREEDY!
BP calls on all residents of Lizzy to reject the Ghost Candidate of the FNM who didn’t have the decency to face the people of the community in a public debate.
BP Responds to Sands commentary to the press in the Green Card status: We see Sands has decided to come out and respond to the Green Card issue.
On Friday he said he was not an American citizen but had one child who was. Today he said he never had nor applied for a Green Card and has never applied for such. And today he says he has Two children which has American citizenship.
Now we are confuse. How could Duane Sands have his first wife as American and two children born Americans and not have applied for nor sought status in the US? How then did he live and work in the US? Was he a breaker of US LAW? Did he operate as an illegal?
We know his card status is indeed true. We also know he got his divorce in 1993 in the story posted above.
When desperation sits in mouth say anything.
We know Duane Sands lived and worked in the United States, Michigan to be exact. We also know while working there he did have documentation to live and work in the US. Sands’ first wife was American and the couple had children together! THAT IS FACT!
Now we will take it further, if Sands did not have a Green Card as he now claims, by what document did he work and operate in the United States?
We await his response before we respond.
