Nassau Bahamas — Once again Bahamians are getting a glimpse of Hubert Ingraham’s ‘double standards’ and shroud policies. In 2007 his junior minister of finance Zhivargo Laing changed the tariff on a drink called Moni Vie for his family members. Laing had broken the laws of the country. The former head of customs agreed that Laing broke the law as he robbed the ‘cookie jar’ for his self-interest, but Hubert didn’t fire him!

Bahamas Press can now report that this same Ministry of Finance and its minister on August 1st, 2009 [Saturday past], issued a statement to the media which announced the decision to remove 16 officers of the Customs Department, who are being interdicted pending the determination of misconduct charges being brought against them.

They were all given letters, which ask them to show cause as to why they should not be dismissed from the Public Service. The letters were issued from the Department of Public Service now headed by this same Zhivargo Laing. It calls on the officers to respond to specific charges of misconduct within 14 days.  How is it Laing didn’t issue a letter to himself? And what will Christie PLP say about this?

The 16 officers are also being issued letters of interdiction, which means that they will be suspended from work with full pay during the determination of the charges.Bahamas Elections

The Ministry also announced as part of its on-going restructuring exercise that 10 Customs officers are being transferred to other Government Departments, three are being retired in the public interest and one is being given early retirement. Hmmmmmmm!

We said it on here, when Ingraham isn’t firing someone from the public service, he taking some Bahamian land and when it isn’t doing that, he raising taxes on the poor. Boy Bahamians are suckers for punishment!

The Trust Agenda Strikes Again!

  1. Not even a MAYO CULPA! Such arrogance…

    “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not us. If we confess our sins God is faithful and just and will forgive our sins.”

    By failing to acknowledge our wrong doings, we in effect empower oursleves to commit greater atrocities. And to think he SLEEPS AT NIGHT

    i think you need to revisit that thing about no lawsuits being filed.
    i read nottage, frank smith and john rolle’s defense of those lawsuits that were filed in the supreme court in the bahama journal last year. its actually online right now.

    i’m with thomas finley and am curious about the status of the suits. personally, i think they are being supressed by the judiciary, but that’s just me and my crazy conspiracy theories for you.

    as far as laing still being on the job, he should have resigned in light of that mona vie situation. but blame ingraham for letting him stay and blame ya boy christie for not raising holy hell about it.

    as far as customs officers go…i don’t think they fired enough. it ain’t no political thing to me.
    those customs officers are some of the most corrupt people ever. every flippin time i bring something in the country that can’t fit inside a suitcase, i get hit up for a handout. every single time. i’ve never seen worse crooks in uniform.
    just like ingraham and christie need to go…many, many people in the public service needs to go.

    @kevin mckenzie

    …you really need to relax. i suggest johnnie walker black or a deep tissue massage or something.

  3. That’s right! Why didn’t Laing write a letter stating why he believe he should be allowed to keep his job after stealing from the government when he decided to changed the tariff on the Mona Vie, so his family members did not have pay the full price. Now he has the nerve to try and humiliate these custom officers, like his hands are so clean. Boy, I tell you, these people are something else.

  4. We remember how mr.Ingraham was BRAGGING AND BOASTING from 1992-2002 that it was his GENIUS AND SKILLFULL handling of the Bahamian economy that caused Bahamas Customs to collect RECORD amount of revenue.WELL IT WAS THOSE SAME OFFICERS THAT ARE NOW BEING INTERDICTED AND RETIRED IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST THAT WERE COLLECTING THOSE HUGE SUMS OF REVENUE!!!Last friday,31.7.09 after 5 pm witnesses saw ADULT MEN AND WOMEN CUSTOMS OFFICERS CRIED LIKE BABIES.INDEED THE PARKING LOT WAS AWASHED WITH TEARS.SOME OFFICERS WERE SO OVERCOME WITH SORROW THAT THEY WERE UNABLE TO DRIVE.IN PLAIN LANGUAGE MR.INGRAHAM HAD CARRIED OUT A MASSACRE IN BAHAMAS CUSTOMS.Despite the numerous tax CONCESSIONS that the Ingraham and Christie government granted to foreign developers, the reduction in customs rates and the elimination of customs duties on some items,Customs Officers ALWAYS collected more revenue than was projected by the minister of finance.NOW IN THE MIDST OF THE WORST RECESSION SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION OF THE 1930S,WITH TOURISM ARRIVAL DOWN BY DOUBLE FIGURES,INCREASED UNEMPLOYMENT,BANKS NOT LENDING AND BUSINESSES IMPORTING LESS GOODS MR.INGRAHAM EXPECTS CUSTOMS TO COLLECT MORE REVENUE!!!Mr.Ingraham must realize that the American tax collectors(IRS)ARE EXPERIENCING A LOSS OF HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN REVENUE DUE TO THE HUGE DOWN TURN IN THEIR ECONOMY.MR.OBAMA AND THE HEAD OF THE IRS ARE NOT BLAMING THEIR EMPLOYEES AND CALLING THEM THIEVES.INSTEAD MR. OBAMA IS TRYING TO GROW THE AMERICAN ECONOMY OUT OF THIS RECESSION.When things were going well in the world economy and ours mr.Ingraham took ALL THE CREDIT,NOT ONCE DID HE PRAISED OR THANKED CUSTOMS BUT NOW THAT HE HAS WRECKED OUR ECONOMY HE SEEKS TO BLAME THE LOWLY CUSTOMS OFFICIALS.Customs officials are aware of the old adage THAT SUCCESS HAS A THOUSAND FATHERS BUT FAILURE DOESNOT EVEN HAVE A MOTHER.To our customs officials i say be encouraged despite the LIES,BLAME AND THE POLITICAL HONCHOS TRYING TO DISCREDIT YOU,REMEMBER GOD WILL REPAY THEM IN THIS LIFE.
