SECOND OPEN LETTER TO UN SECRETARY GENERAL, PRESIDENTS OF UN SECURITY COUNCIL, IMF, WORLD BANK, CDB AND SUNDAY TIMES

An urgent request is made to the presidents of United Nations Security Council to send an envoy to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) to conduct on-site investigation in relation to financial genocide against the black poor and powerless indigenous population of SVG.

6TH SEPTEMBER 2019

Dear Senior Officials,

The Super-rich, White Migrant millionaires and billionaires of Mustique & Canouan and Taiwan are committing acts of financial genocide against the Black Poor and Powerless Indigenous Population in SVG.

Taiwan owes the SVG Treasury an estimated EC$54 billion in Fish Tax not paid for the period of 2001 to 2018?

According to Vincentian-born, Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, Leader of SVG Green Party, the Mustique Act NO 48 OF 2002 gives tax and customs exemptions of hundreds of millions of dollars annually to the millionaires and billionaires of Mustique and Canouan, islands in SVG.

The Superrich White Migrants, The Millionaires and The Billionaires of Mustique and Canouan are Engineering the takeover of SVG by not paying tax and Customs Duty of Millions of Dollars annually. They are running the SVG Treasury dry, forcing the poor and power black population in to poverty and destitution.

Table 1 below shows sale of crown lands in SVG. We will lose our country to the Super-rich, White Migrants in Mustique and in Canouan by corrupt sales of Crown Lands.

The above Table 1 is only the tip of the iceberg. The Freedom of Information Act signed by His Excellency, The Governor General of SVG in 2003, has not been proclaimed nor Gazetted to become law. This law is needed to facilitate in-depth searches about the sale of Crown Lands in SVG and much more.

The hopeless and useless and grossly incompetent ULP Regime are digging a hole to fill a hole, borrowing large sums of money to pay Public Debt, rather than impose Tax and Customs duty on the Superrich White Migrants of Mustique and Canouan and Fish Tax on Taiwan.

SVG is being taken over by Superrich, White Migrant Millionaires and Billionaires of Mustique and Canouan through Financial Genocide, by running the SVG Treasury dry by not paying tax and customs duty.

The evidence is substantial. The 1979 SVG Constitutionally Appointed Director of Audit has failed the ULP government in the audit of government finances regulated by the provisions of Section 75 (2) of the Constitution of SVG and the Audit Act 2005, for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The Leader of SVG Green Party, Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, very strongly contends that the Mustique Act No 48 of 2002 is in breach of the SVG Constitution, Section 13, which states ‘No law shall make any provision that is discriminatory either of itself or in its effect’.

We request that the United Nations Security Council urgently send an envoy to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to conduct on-site investigation in relation to financial genocide against the black poor and powerless indigenous population of SVG.

Yours Faithfully


Leader of SVG Green Party, Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA

CC Her Excellency, The Governor General of SVG
Cabinet Secretary of ULP Regime
Hon Attorney General of SVG
His Excellency The President of Singapore
Her Excellency The President of Taiwan
