Letter to Governor General

Hon Governor General of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Government House, Kingstown
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

30th April 2019

Your Excellency,

We must abolish the NDP & ULP breaching of Section 13 of the SVG 1979 Constitution in providing Tax & Customs Duty Exemptions of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Superrich White Migrants in Mustique and Canouan. The NDP AND ULP failed to provide the balancing of advantages against disadvantages to our people and to our county by introducing the illegal Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002, which benefits the white people and slaps the black indigenous black population in the face.

The Saint Vincent and the grenadines 1979 constitution, section 13, states no law shall make any provision that is discriminatory either of itself or in its effect. In other words, the NDP and the ULP did not have the legal power to approve the illegal Mustique act no 48 of 2002. It was, and still stands, a gross breach of the supreme law of saint Vincent and the grenadines.

Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal, who spent three years reading for his BSc (hons) in Accounting and Finance and Economics at Oxford Brookes University England, very strongly contends that there is no net benefit to the indigenous People and Country of SVG from the illegal Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002.

Warrant officer Ivan O’Neal, leader of the SVG Green Party, writes to you in response to Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves outrageous statement in the Vincentian Newspaper dated 26 April 2019 page 12, in which Dr Ralph Gonzales stated the agreement between St Vincent and the Grenadines and the Mustique Company is a unique one.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is not the private Estate of Dr Ralph Gonsalves or the ULP or NDP to approve the Mustique Act No 48 OF 2002.

Your Excellency, The SVG Green Party is making a very strong call under the SVG Constitution for the Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 to be abolished in 2019. The Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 is in breach of the SVG 1979 Constitution. Everyone is equal under the Supreme law.

The Freedom of Information Act 2003, which was signed by the Governor General in 2003, has not been Proclaimed nor Gazetted to become Law. This is stifling democracy.

During the General Elections in 2005, 2010 and 2015, the ULP Regime took millions of dollars worth of duty free Election Equipment for the ULP and NDP. However the ULP Regime passed regulations banning DUTY FREE on General Election Equipment to the SVG Green Party. This is stifling democracy.

In 2012, The ULP Regime illegally increased the price of water using a Financial Statement which was in breach of the Statutory duty. This is gross abuse of power. The illegal increase in the price of water in 2012 should be abolished.

The technique being used by Superrich White Migrants Millionaires and Billionaires in Mustique and Canouan is to starve SVG Treasury of Revenue by not paying tax and Customs Duty to SVG Treasury, when the Treasury has no revenue the ULP Regime is selling Crown Lands to Superrich White Migrants. This is direct Looting of our nation resources.

Since independence 27th October 1979 the breaching of the supreme law has impacted quite negatively on our once blessed nation. The black indigenous population of our country have became third class citizens in their nation of birth, being poor and powerless. The breaching of the supreme law must end to ensure the black indigenous children and grandchildren of SVG are not pushed out of their own country

Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal has a Master OF Business Administration MBA from University of Leicester, England. He strongly contends that duty free concession is only usually granted to infant Industry Start ups. Mustique is not an infant Industry Start Up. The Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 is an Apartheid legislation and is directly responsible for the high unemployment rate across the nation, poor medical care, an excessive crime rates in SVG and can cause heavy Public Unrest in the long term in SVG.

Superrich White Migrants Millionaires and Billionaires are getting away with Economic Murder in our country. But worse, these white Migrants want the Black Indigenous Population to subsidize their rich Selfish Lifestyle. This is gross abuse of power by the ULP Regime

Taiwan is another dirty dog, like Superrich White Migrants of Mustique and Canouan, who does not pay Fish Tax. It is conservatively estimated that Taiwan owes the SVG Treasury EC$54 billion dollars in fish tax for the period of 2001 to 2018. Taiwan is looting from the SVG economy.

The Black indigenous school children are paying a very heavy price for the abuse of power in SVG. In 2018, hundreds of school children were sent home from several schools which were considered highly dilapidated and not safe for the children. Yet Superrich White Migrants Millionaires and Billionaires not paying tax and customs duty.

We must stop this Radical reality in SVG that is benefiting White Migrants, but perpetuating Poverty and squalor and illiteracy for the Indigenous Black population.

We will overcome.

Yours faithfully
