Moontown, Barbados, 11. March 2010:  Lindquist submits report on CL, CLICO

CANADIAN forensic investigator Robert Lindquist has handed in his report on CL Financial and insurance giant Clico, Attorney General John Jeremie said yesterday.

Asked if the preliminary report recommends criminal charges, including the seizure of assets, Jeremie said he could not say whether that was so or not ’for obvious reasons’.

’I have to walk a very fine line on what I can disclose,’ he said, adding that it was against the general policy of the Office of the Attorney General to comment on criminal matters.

On February 21st, 2009 I enquired: What is the Nature of the Relationship between Leroy Parris of CLICO and Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson?

I was not pleased to hear the Attorney General say (according to above source) “I have to walk a very fine line on what I can disclose, …”

What about the whole truth?

It will be interesting to see what the report has to say about David Thompson and Leroy Parris. Both have been heavily involved with CLICO.

ONE DAY after Attorney General John Jeremie announced that he received a report from Canadian forensic investigator Bob Lindquist about the CL Financial Group and its subsidiary Colonial Life Insurance Company (Clico), former Clico Investment Bank (CIB) chairman Mervyn Assam said he expects the law to take its course.

What is the reason for the government keeping this report under wraps? Will private investors sue to get the contents of the report?
