Letter: Was it money well spent

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Any money spent in a community for the residents of that particular community can be considered money well spent however, looking at the park one can see that it is in a deplorable state. Discredit should not be on Honourable Branville McCartney but the uncaring and destructive residents who have no self-respect and pride for their community. Oftentime when parks are repaired the very next day equipment is stolen or destroyed. With individuals of that nature no amount of money is ever sufficient.

By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

A Bahamas-based broker/dealer's liquidator has pledged to "vigorously oppose" two legal applications - one by a convicted money launderer, the other by the Attorney General's Office -that could "put the security of the customers' assets held in the Bahamas in jeopardy".

Clifford Culmer, the BDO Mann Judd accountant, in his eighth report to the Bahamian Supreme Court on the liquidation of Dominion Investments, whose principal Martin Tremblay is serving a four-year prison sentence in the US after pleading guilty to money laundering, said the return of assets the broker/dealer had held in trust for their beneficial owners had ...

Man stabbed in money row, court hears

A man was fatally stabbed in the neck following a row over money, a Supreme Court jury heard yesterday.
Prosecutors allege that Charles Edwin Cunningham killed Darvey Basden on June 2, 2011 at an apartment at Constitution Drive.
Cunningham, who is on bail, has denied the allegation at his trial before Justice Indra Charles.
Basden's girlfriend, Georgina Wright, testified at the trial via video link.
She said while in the bathroom, she heard Basden arguing with someone in her bedroom.
She said when she came to investigate, she met the defendant, whom she called C.J., in her bedroom with Basden.
She said C.J. was asking for his money and he had a knife.
Wright claimed that she tried to take the knife and C.J. allegedly said "he would kill all of us if we tried [to] gang him".
After the alleged threat, Wright said her boyfriend asked her to leave the room with their three-year-old son.
She said when she returned to the room, C.J. was gone but she saw Basden in a pool of blood, barely able to speak.
Wright said she held his hand and placed cloth against the wound.
Wright said before he took his last breath, Basden told her that C.J. had stabbed him and that he loved her and their son.
Roberto Reckley appears for Cunningham. Kevin Farrington is the prosecutor.
