ANOTHER OPEN LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR GENERAL

ANOTHER OPEN LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR GENERAL

YOUR EXCELENCY

Vincentian Born Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons) MSc, MBA and Leader of SVG Green Party is making a Very Strong positive Request on His Excellency The Governor General of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines to send PRIME MINISTER HON Dr Ralph Gonsalves on Permanent Leave for Dr Ralph Gonsalves Gross Incompetence. Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves is a significant Liability to our country through his significant Gross Incompetence on Public Accounts and Finance.

Let us all be clear in our mind Saint Vincent and The Grenadines is not the Private Estate of Dr Ralph Gonsalves, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines is not a Failed State nor a Banana Republic. And Prime
Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves is not above the Laws of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

According to The 1979 Saint Vincent and The Grenadines Constitutionally Appointed Director of Audit Reports, Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves as SVG MINISTER OF FINANCE has failed Accountability and Transparency quite profoundly for Three consecutive years 2008, 2009 and 2010. In Accordance with the Provisions of Section 75 (2) of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Constitution and the Audit Act 2005(where are we going as a country with gross incompetence rom PM Dr Ralph Gonsalves?).

Failing Audit for three consecutive years . Is a world Record for gross incompetence by any yard stick. The whole situation is quite incredible for a Minister Of Finance to fail Audit for three consecutive years 2008, 2009 and 2010. Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves fully warrant being sent home on permanent leave for gross incompetence.

According to Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal having served with Distinction for over 31 years in the British Royal Air Force as an Engineer, it is heart breaking to see how our beloved Country has been pushed in to the Gutter by gross incompetence from Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves

According to The Leader of SVG Green Party Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal who spent three years full time reading for a BSc (hons) degree in Accounting and Finance and Economics at Oxford Brookes University, England in his professional opinion, Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves is digging a hole to fill a hole, that is, PM Gonsalves is barrowing money to pay Public Debt. This is highly counterproductive to sustainable economic development in our County barrowing money to pay Public Debt is very bad House management, SVG Economy should not have been pushed into heavy Public Debt to warrant barrowing money to pay Public Debt.

Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves Failed AUDIT of Public Accounts for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines for three Consecutive Years, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in accordance with the provisions of Sections 75 (2) of the Constitution of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the Audit Act 2005. In my professional opinion, and being a University graduate in Accounting and Finance and Economics, PM Dr Ralph Gonsalves having failed Audit so deeply and incompetently and badly having failed Accountability and Transparency so deep and so badly.

PM Dr Ralph Gonsalves has a very high morale obligation and responsibility to show honour to our people and to the World and do the honourable duty and resign for his gross incompetence as SVG Minister of Finance, it is not too late for PM Dr Gonsalves to show his true love for SVG and . RESIGN.

The Table below is an extract from the AUDIT CERTIFICATE 2008. According to Audit Report 2008, Accountant General’s current account was NOT RECONCILED with the National Commercial BANK (NCB) Account:

Accountant General Balance $185,142,677.08 OD
National Commercial Bank $72,217,098.87 OD
Difference $112,925,578.21

The Difference is utterly beyond belief EC$112, 925,578.21 OD. Where was the OECS Central Bank? Should the OECS Central Bank not intervene to protect the LIQUIDITY of the SVG National Commercial Bank . The NCB was killed with ULP Regime overdraft of EC$185 million. his gross incompetence demands Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves ought to resign soonest from the SVG Honourable House of Assembly. (Where are we going in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines)

Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves The SVG Minister of Finance could not Reconciled the Bank Account. ?

The Economic, Financial and circulation of money in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is much too weak. We urgently need a big change in our Tax System to cut TAX and have a fair Tax SYSTEM.
Giving away billions of dollars in Tax and customs duty avoidance to Superrich white Migrants in Mustique and Canouan. and fish tax avoidance of about EC$54 billion dollars to Taiwan for he period 2001 t 2018 is totally unacceptable.

The Black Poor and Powerless Indigenous Population in SVG does not need a Rocket Scientist to tell them they are being pushed to the ground in deep destitution driven by RECIPR0CATION OF TAX EXEMPTION DURING GENERAL ELECTIONS IN SVG.

WE WILL OVERCOME
Yours Faithfully

Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc(hons), MSc, MBA LEADER OF SVG Green Party
