Another open letter to Governor General

12 MAY 2019

Your Excellency

Strong call for public enquiry into the severe damage inflicted on SVG Economy by the illegal MUSTQUE Act NO 48 OF 2002. Which is unconstitutional and in breach of Section 13 of The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines 1979 Constitution. Section 13 States “No law shall make any provision that is discriminatory either of its self or in its effect.

The 1979 Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Constitutionally Appointed Director of Audit Failed Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves on Audit of Public Accounts for three consecutive years 2008, 2009 and 2010 The statistical tables below shows the incompetent ULP Regime is given away more taxes to the Superrich White Migrants in Mustique, Canouan and Taiwan than revenue going into SVG Treasury. “The Public Enquiry is an instrument in LAW to confirm nothing is unique about the Mustique act NO48 of 2002 in the gross Miss-management of Pubic Accounts which is clearly seen in table 2 where the ULP Regime has thrown away in eighteen years 3.581B EC Dollars to the benefit of white migrants.

1 The Poor and Indigent black Population have been forced to eat food from Bins in Capital Kingstown to survive whist the superrich in Mustique and canouan and Taiwan eat caviar and drink Italian wine with free SVG tax money The situation is inhuman with no justice for the misery and very deep suffering of the black Poor and Indigenous People of our country.
2 In 2018 hundreds of school children were sent home from schools which were dilapidated and was not safe for school children.
3 Crime is highly rampant. The ULP built a new Jail and not a university to address the causes of crime.

SVG Green Party is making strong a call for Parliament to be recalled to abolished the illegal Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 .Table 1 shows Budget estimates for 2001-2018

Warrant officer Ivan O’Neal a graduate from Brookes university Oxford England strongly contends all of the money set out in Table 2 are to the benefit of Superrich white migrants of Mustique, Canouan. and Taiwan

As a Nation we are shooting ourselves in the foot with the Mustique Act NO48 OF 2002 and failing to rewrite The Fisheries Act CAP 59 to provide EC$1 billion surplus revenue every year to invest in sustainable development to provide prosperity for our people and country. The Opportunity Costs of Mustique ACT NO 48 OF 2002 and Parasite Taiwan are too great to ignore.

We will overcome

Yours faithfully

Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA and Leader of SVG Green Party.
