The Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce is voicing concern about the possible backlash that can be experienced following the murder of an elderly German couple on the island.

Their bodies were found by persons walking along Minister’s Bay in Bacolet , Tobago on Saturday.

No one has been charged to date, with the killings.

The Police Service has appointed its leading homicide investigators and a large team of officers from support units to bring those responsible for the murders, to justice.

A reward of $100,000 TT dollars has also been offered by Crime Stoppers for information that will lead to the arrest and prosecution of perpetrators involved in the crime.

In a News Power Now exclusive interview on Wednesday, Tobago Chamber President, Diane Hadad , said the group is closely monitoring the situation.

    THE GERMAN COUPLE IS A VICTIM OF HATE CRIME!

    Why would the Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce be concerned! They themselves want no white entrepreneurs on the island. The island is so full of hate towards white foreigners that almost no one gets a work permit or let alone a permit for residency or a permit to open a business in Tobago. What the white foreigner was allowed – as it was before the Foreign Investment Act was changed due to Orville London’s phantasy (he saw hordes of land-grabbing white people!!) while in fact only 370 foreign land transactions took place in a time period of 15 years – was, that anyone could buy some land and built his house on it, in a way a bring money and go system. The foreigner got a three month visa and had to beg for an extension and had to keep his mouth shut as otherwise he had to fear not to come in again. One could say a wonderful example for freedom of investment isn’t it? What does the chamber of commerce say to this? This foreign investor became namely the play ball for every stupid bureaucrat (one was cutting his hairs out of his nose, while I had to tell him why I would like to stay three month longer!). Further I know that Tobago people due to the fact that they are being kept by their people in power – for their good reasons – low civilized and are more than easily manipulated into foreigner hate. I have met Tobagonians who believe that people who can’t sell their properties anymore – having been quasi expropriated through Orville London – will be chased one day off the island anyway and their beautiful houses will become theirs. I don’t know but perhaps has been such political comments out there who knows? Something like this a Tobagonian likes to believe and of course Orville and his men know that. Anyone on the island knows that a foreigner in Tobago has the value of a wild goat and can be hunted down by everyone. But London’s game to keep the Island black and him therewith successful in politic is robbing Tobago off it’s future. There is namely no future without direct foreign investment and this one came to a halt with the change of the Foreign Investment Act and many investors have been indirectly expropriated and Orville London is the one which is violating our human right (the one’s which have bought before the change) to own land freely.
    Why would anyone get the idea to slaughter old people, who haven’t bothered anyone just brought all their retirement money to a small island in search of sun and helping the previously dead economy to some growth? These killings are politically motivated and I do hope that the German police is investigation because the will find the pool of politically organized crime.And perhaps the chamber of commerce and industry gets the idea instead of seemingly worrying so much about the possible backlash to educate the Tobago people how much positive impact all the investment of these so hated white people had in Tobago? Believe me it would be a step forward in the right direction.
