Letter: Let's clean these islands

April 17, 2015

Letter: Is corruption continuing?

April 15, 2015
It is with great regret that I acknowledge that you have finally demonstrated yourself to be nothing more than another incompetent and or corrupt British bureaucrat and paper tiger. The tenure of Governor Gordon Wetherell was a God-send for this country.

Letter: Stop the cover-up of the hospital scam with fake audits

April 3, 2015
Like we suspected and knew the art of the whitewash and the cover-up continues. First, this year the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) governor reluctantly allowed a review of the Financial Services Commission (FSC). That review came back with ‘approval’ because there was no real investigation.

Letter: Weak leadership in the TCI - a Caribbean trend

April 1, 2015
The decision to postpone the governing Progressive National Party (PNP) annual convention is not surprising, shocking or alarming. For the Turk and Caicos Islands (TCI) it may be best deemed “business as usual”. The reasons are not clear but it seems that the party’s rank and file...

Letter: Integrity Commission compromised?

March 23, 2015

Letter: Twelve floors?

March 20, 2015
It seems they're at it again. A Notice for Planning Approval for a resort in Providenciales for 12 storeys and not 7 Stars as before. When it was seven floors the entire expat community, native and TCIslander and Belonger crowd, developer community, PDMs some PNPs, people who had homes...

Letter: Crown and TCI government colluded with Mortimer Sackler

March 17, 2015
With all due respect; anyone reading the documents published in this week’s Turks and Caicos Weekly News pertaining to the new FBO and the Crown land swindle at Providenciales International Airport will rapidly conclude that the Crown, the Airport Authority and the TCI government...

Letter: Games continue over investigation into hospital contract

March 14, 2015
It is very bizarre that it is only the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) opposition that’s carrying the ball on this absolutely critically needed investigation into the Turks and Caicos Islands hospital contract. Now the public is learning three months after the motion to investigate was passed...

Letter: Why do they not protest in the TCI?

February 17, 2015
An alleged Crown Land swindle has occurred at the Providenciales International Airport in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) in connection with the new Blue Heron FBO where no belongers are shareholders, partners or owners. Mortimer Sackler, Michel Neutlings and other foreigners...

Letter: Willfully blind and morally complicit in the TCI

February 10, 2015
Governor Beckingham, the TCI Integrity Commission investigators and the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have apparently elected to remain willfully blind and morally complicit in the theft of Crown Land from Belongers at the Providenciales International Airport.

Letter: This is what it is all about - TCI hospital costs revealed

February 4, 2015
Please see below. This is what it is all about. We have now confirmed that, if they have the gall to investigate this scam, all roads will lead to Ashcroft. Facts and reality will confirm that Sir Robin Auld's Commission, Interim Government, SIPT, Integrity Commission were all established...

Letter: Newly appointed 'hanging' judge tests the resolve of the TCI people

January 19, 2015
The appointment of the hanging, whipping, plantation slave-like conditions judge to the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) proves that the British government, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are all encouraged to engage in 21st century, latter day racism. The FCO has long been...

Letter: Social issues in the Turks and Caicos Islands

January 16, 2015
Good afternoon, Turks and Caicos. My name is Avi Adams, and I am writing to you today as a concerned citizen. I rarely ever have much to say publicly about social issues going on in the country, especially when it comes to politics. I now find myself extremely emotional and saddened.

Letter: For the UK it is all about the money, not justice

November 29, 2014
