The president of the Barbados Bar Association, in a major news article appearing today, attempted to misdirect Bajans angry at four lawyer convictions in recent years, by offering excuses, and not directly addressing the rampant attorney misconduct that has infected every aspect of commercial life in Barbados. We do not need to hear someone spin the lawyer's version of the case, in which he had absolutely no excuse, and claimed lack of knowledge of the transaction, to confuse the public.
Here is a direct verbatim quote from the article:
“There is no rule that says that a transaction has to be handled in a particular way when it comes to the payment of the monies for the sale of property…How it is paid depends on a lot of different things; where it is coming from, if there is an old loan on the property that has to be paid off, a whole list of different things, but if one is organized the difficulties can be mitigated, but there is no hard and fast rule that is likely to be appropriate for every transaction".
