  1. Makes sense no. Corrupt people only by into corrupt countries as that’s the only way the dirty money can get washed.

  2. How many Passports did he acquire for opening this crazy business in St. Lucia
    it appears to me that anyone can just come here and start business with no questions
    asked and they attain so called citizenship? This thing needs heavy duty review.

  3. oh gosh, dese ppl doesn’t to background research when selecting buyers?? haven’t we learn anything from sanford?

      No worries as he is based in America and he is bringing all his profits back to America, so nothing will happen to him or to this case. Maybe if the money was going to be circulated throughout the Caribbean he would have been charged and arrested. Remember ALLAN STANDFORD! Similar situation and STANFORD was arrested not too long after the million dollar T20 game. TWWLI
