Peter Binose: Fraud against the IMF, Argyle Airport?


Peter Binose

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, Sunday June 29, 2014 – For you all to consider that what I write is true to public records and political fact. Public records that are held in Grenada, and Micro Fiche copies in the US.

It worried me greatly when Ralph Gonsalves announced in Saint Vincent that he is here to finish the work of Maurice Bishop. I am still seeking an explanation of exactly what that statement means and what part of Bishops work Gonsalves wants to adopt?

We must remember that Gonsalves was very close to Bishop, shortly after the Marxist Grenada revolution, travelling with Bishop in his car and writing political speech’s for him. [its all a matter of public record, and a written record by Gonsalves himself] We know that Bishop was capable of writing his own speech’s but these were busy times and he needed help, help by like minded Caribbean people.

So when Gonsalves announced he is here to finish the work of dead Marxist, Maurice Bishop, I previously asked the question on several sites such as this, “what part or parts of Bishops work does he intend completing”. Is it some, is it a selection, or is it all?

Bishop did a lot of dreadful things, one of the things that Bishop did was undertake to obtain money fraudulently from the IMF and other lending institutes.

I am sure that Maurice Bishop was not the first and will not be the last MARXIST even non Marxist Caribbean leader or ruler to deceive the IMF.

Some present day governments today may well be using the same method. Falsifying finance figures, also tourism, agriculture, fishing, large project figures, even crime records, and other statistics. Whether CUBA still offers advice on how to do this is another consideration, even a question we should verociously ask. Ask in the expectation that we are given an answer, if not by our own government, perhaps by some other entity. Is it still a service offered to its associates, its Caribbean political admirers and followers.

On the advice of Russia and Cuba Maurice Bishop of Grenada had suggested to his party Central Committee how to overcome the IMF and World Bank requirements, by keeping two sets of books and records, so as to defraud the IMF.

When the Americans invaded Grenada, they found, confiscated and shipped to the US 6 tons of paper records. The best kept records of a Communist revolution ever to be found anywhere. There were thousands of records some as government central committee records, some even written in the hand of Bishop.

They found all sorts of records, including the diaries of Maurice Bishop, and all the secret official agreements between Bishops regime and Cuba, East Germany, Russian USSR, Vietnam, North Korea, and dozens of other communist bloc countries, most of whom had required that such contracts and agreements be kept secret. Kept secret because they included contractual intentions, also numbers and details of arms and military supplies, made or proposed.

The records were copied in the US by the microfiche method, and then returned to Grenada. Returned to Grenada where they were made fully available for the public to scrutinise.

With regards to the fraud against the IMF, here are the US record office and Grenadian record locations and references.

Grenada Revolution, Deception on Economic Matters
Minutes of Central Committee:
At a meeting in Grenada on August 3, 1983, the political/Economic Bureau of the NJM noted that International Monetary Fund requirements for badly needed assistance would be difficult to meet –
“Comrade Maurice Bishop suggested that we use the Suriname and Cuban experience in keeping two sets of records in the banks for this purpose”
Later in the same meeting –
“Comrades again highlighted the urgent importance of training Comrades to adjust the banking figures. Someone should be sent to Cuba or the Soviet Union”
And again –
“The comrades from Nicaragua and Cuba must visit Grenada to train Comrades in the re-adjustment of the books.”

Minutes of Meetings – August 1983
Date: 3 Aug 1983: Description: Minutes of Central Committee, Political Bureau, Economic Bureau and other Meetings refer to the economy, fraudulently readjusting the books for IMF.

This opinion is not meant to infer or imply that Ralph E. Gonsalves is involved in the altering of any records whatsoever in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, or of committing or planning any illegal act.

But as the Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister who makes statements about the dead criminal Marxist, Maurice Bishop, we really do require some answers to his statements. Exactly what work of Maurice Bishop does PM Gonsalves intend emulating or completing?

Its a simple question. Because without the answer people may rightly or wrongly assume that Gonsalves intends to adopt all the work of Bishop.

That may well lay them open to being sued by Gonsalves, so for the sake of Justice, please PM Gonsalves, lets have the low down of your intentions.

There have recently been another opinions, one by ‘Simon Rouse’ quoting the International Airport that was being built by the Cubans in Grenada, being built for the use as a military airport. An opinion that asks if St. Vincent’s Argyle airport project is a military project.

I first raised the above questions about Maurice Bishops fraud, on several occasions since 2011. To date no answer, no explanation, no rendition to the Vincentian people who are owed an explanation, nothing except silence.

Some say silence is golden but in this matter its not, it hangs like a lead weight around the neck of those decent non-Marxist members of Vincentian society. Those people who are coming to feel tricked and deceived by their leaders, those people who want to know the truth and want an answer from the Gonsalves family leadership.

I say Gonsalves family leadership because PM Gonsalves is an elected member, his son is an unelected member, selected by him as a senator and minister, his cousin Julian Francis has stood for election on several occasion, always to be rejected by the people, an unelectable and unelected member of parliament, except by Gonsalves choice of him as a senator and minister. Between them the trio hold all the important post’s and ministries, between them the trio control parliament and every ministerial meeting. Between them the trio are effectively the government of SVG., the central committee. Between them, by some, the trio may well be described as a family dictatorship.

Wake up people and smell the sulphur. Wake up Diaspora and seeketh the way of the Lord, reject those that claim to only work Obeah for the Lord.

“If I work Obeah, I only work Obeah for the Lord“, Dr. Ralph E. Gonsalves.

    What about some of the good things Maurice Bishop has done? Could it be that Gonzales wants to channel that mind set? It is good practice to present both sides of a situation. Don’t only highlight the bad because it supports your story. Give the people all the information. Let them decide.

    Humble Grenadian.

    Here we go again and who is sponsoring this asshole, the CIA or? My annoyance here is Caribbean 360 is giving this jackass of the Neo Cons type the platform to spread his filth. I’m convinced this so called “keeper of the bugle” is alike to Anesia who he took to task in the last Caribbean 360 and his sole purpose is to undermine governments such as the ULP.
    Attacking Bishop is lower than the low since he’s dead and can’t defend himself of Binose accusation of defrauding the IMF with the aid of Russia and Cuba (bee in his bonnet about Cuba or any left leaning gov’t/party), but as if the IMF are not super qualified to see fraud when it’s there. Mr Binose (if he’s a Mr) has a vivid imagination and can invent conspiracy in the broadest sense. Not sure how much he knows of the comrade or his ideology, but labelling him as an outright communist he is not and furthest from the truth. The label Comrade was aided by US invention; and what’s so wrong with social leaning? His hiatus of anything social is a giveaway of this buffoon.
    Caribbean360 must be more careful in their chosen articles and the Neo Cons who are out to destroy social progress with his demonic filth.

    I think Caribbean 360 has now lost its credibility. Peter Binose is not even the writer’s real name. For Caribbean 360 to publish this article for a so-called balanced news site now raises questions as to how credible they are. I am shocked that “Peter Binose” would be given such attention on this site…I shall no longer read this site as a trusted news entity.

    What an absolute hoot! everyone of those who object to what I wrote is using a false name.

    Clynton Morris, says what I write is untrue filth, its not, I have given the facts, what Gonsalves said, fact. What Bishop did to defraud the IMF, fact, I even give locations of the relevant public records. Of course we have to talk about Bishop, he carried out numerous atrocities, and if we fail to remember that, others will repeat the same atrocities.

    Mecca, say’s I should list the good thing Bishop did. No you list them Mecca. Bishop locked up hundreds without trial. Put Rastafarians in a concentration camp. Took away the constitution. Now you Mecca list some of the good things he did. Because a hundred good things cannot right the few bad things that I list. I can list hundreds of atrocities, all written historical fact.

    Janice Sealey, Can you show anything that I wrote which is untrue, not because you say so, can you prove such. I prove what I write, I list public records etc.

    Attacking Maurice Bishop is going to do what for you? Its not going to change the fact that the ULP will retain power, its not going to stop the Airport from finishing. Majority of Grenadians supported Bishop. Asshole peter you need to realize that SVG is a democratic country with a mixed economy so shut it with your Marxist crap. Am a Marxist and Fidel Castro is my hero, what are you going to do about that. Watch how the comrade ha you, Peter I command you to go right now and post another piece of filth.

  • Bush Boy

    gigsaw, its time to shut your mouth. You do much damage to the comrade with your stupid posts on here. People like you should be dealt with by the party. You will lose us the elections. So shut your mouth and behave yourself. Remember we will find out who you are and will need to talk quietly with you.

  • gigsaw

    bush boy if is war u looking for u will get it, and don’t tell me to shut up, who the puck u think u r, I can and will say what ever I want, what r u planning on doing if u find out who I am. boy if u know who u dealing with u will go and hide.

  • Bush Boy

    So now we have an admission by gigsaw that he is Julian Francis, because he is the only man that I would be frightened of. The unelected, unelectable Mr Fixit enforcer cousin of the PM. The man that can do anything he wants, the man who may eventually help us with the story about the dead press secretary.
