Another OPEN Letter TO The Governor General

Your Excellency

Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves say Mustique Agreement a UNIQUE ONE there is nothing like this that exist any where in the world.(Source Vincentian 12 April 2019) – SVG Green Party Leader Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA Say Gonsalves is absolutely correct. Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 is NOT ADMISSIBLE it is in breach of SVG 1979 Constitution. And the superrich white migrants Millionaires and Billionaires are paying no tax and customs duty but the indigenous black poor and powerless citizens are forced to pay tax and customs duties.

Is Saint Vincent and the Grenadines a Failed State?. The Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 is Dictatorship, White Migrants telling us no tax and no Customs Duty they are out of place

We want Democracy and a Fair Taxation System in our Country, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines must not be an ATM free bank for Superrich White Migrants to cash out from our revenue not paying Tax and Customs duty for life. They must pay Tax and Customs duty or pack their bags and go back to where they come from.

Vincentian born Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA and Leader of SVG Green Party and graduate from Oxford Brookes University, Accounting and Finance and Economics strongly contend that we urgently need a billion dollar investment in our own Fishing Industry and two billion dollars investment in very High Quality Education from Pre-School to our own Science and Technology University to drive a knowledge base Economy like Singapore to move our country forward into sustainable development.

Research has shown that a country such as SINGAPORE with very high QUALITY standard of education from Pre-School to University always attract heavy foreign investment, unemployment in SINGAPORE is less than two percent. Foreign Investment in SINGAPORE is more than all Developing Countries Combined. White Migrants in Mustique and Canouan not paying TAX and Customs Duties are highly Counterproductive to the development of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Your Excellency, we very urgently need to abolish The Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002.

The bottom line is the highly negative ripple impact on Saint and the Grenadines Economy fully warrant The Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 to be abolished as it is in breach of Section 13 of the Supreme Law, no one is above the Law. Section 13 states that “No Law shall make any provision that is discriminatory either of itself or in its effect.

Enough is enough the Mustique Wall will come down, we want a wind of change blowing fresh air throughout Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The Berlin Wall came down in Germany and the Mustique wall of Apartheid will also come down in SVG.

Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves is not qualified in Finance, The Director of Audit failed Gonsalves on Audit of Public Accounts in 2008, 2009 and 2010, Gonsalves over shot the 2007 Budget Expenditure by EC$63 million, Gonalves Killed the National Commercial Bank in 2008 with an outrageous Bank Overdraft of EC$185 million. Yet Gonsalves has the GALL to tell the people of SVG, Mustique Agreement a unique one, is the incompetent leading the blind in SVG? Where are we going?

In 2008, The Accountant General Current Account was not reconciled with the (NCB) Where are we going with counterproductive management of Public Accounts in SVG? The revenue being lost in
Mustique Canaouan and to Taiwan is about the future of our children and Grand Children, is SVG House of Assembly not a laughing stock under the ULP Regime, for approving the Mustique ACT NO 48 of 2002 Where are we going?

When taken into consideration the ULP Regime is so grossly unqualified and highly incompetent on Public Accounts and Finance, is it not time for cross Party Action on tax and customs duty exemptions in Mustique and Canouan and Taiwan?

Mustique, Canaouan and Taiwan are the parasites sucking the blood of SVG Economy no where in the world except SVG this Apartheid system exist .research has proven when a nation is highly educated the people will not allow themselves to be pushed over .

We will overcome.

Yours faithfully
