In a previous article, I wrote about Nitin Amersey and the Cotton scandal in Barbados.

How the Barbados Government used the Military to Destroy a Canadian Investor, and in so Doing Destroyed the Entire Cotton Industry

Nitin Amersey fought the Barbados Government and won, but his lawyer was sued for libel by former Prime Minister Erskine Sandiford and former Minister of Agriculture Harcourt Lewis.

See: Weekend Nation Friday, March 5, 1993

The embarrassing thing is that, according to Nitin Amersey, the former PM lost the case!

What do you think about Government Ministers using threats of libel to silence criticism?
