When the programs are active, any and all arrivals from St Kits & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, St Lucia and Grenada will be subject to scrutiny as high-risk individuals, whether they be citizenship by Investment passport holders, or native-born, as the CBI countries have intentionally engaged in these activities, designed to conceal the actual true identity of their dodgy CBI clients:
(1) Changing the legal name of the client on his CBI passport.
(2) Altering his place of birth, or deleting it altogether, (a ploy that caused serious damage to the legitimacy of the St Kitts program, until it was restored).
(3) Changing the date of birth on the CBI passport. This is a particularly egregious tactic, according to compliance officers who are responsible for excluding criminals and others who pose a danger, and customs and immigration officers charged with excluding clear and present dangers to their nation.
All of the above actions are deliberate efforts to defeat any computer searches seeking to properly identify the CBI passport holder.
We have seen some preliminary actions already; an Attorney General from Trinidad & Tobago detained and interrogated, Caribbean nationals who bags & baggage were extensively searched, and their business interests subject to probing questions. When the average West Indian, arriving in an airport of entry, either in North America or Europe, has to experience high-risk treatment, the blow back to Caribbean politicians will be deafening. Perhaps at that point, the CBI jurisdictions will have to consider a major reform of their programs, especially the due diligence phase of each investigation.
