Barrow and Williams Holds “Insignificant” Shares in Caribbean Investment Holdings

The relationship between Lord Michael Ashcroft’s business concerns and Prime Minister Dean Barrow’s law firm, Barrow and Williams, retained for litigation on behalf of the Belize Bank Limited and others, is well-known.  It is now confirmed that that relationship extends to the firm having shares in the former BCB Holdings, now known as Caribbean Investment Holdings Limited.  In our interview, Ashcroft confirms but did not exactly specify how much or how the shares were acquired.

“Now Senator Courtenay also called into question, whether the Prime Minister and his law firm have shares in C.I.H.L.? Can you confirm this?”

“Off the top of my head, from years and years ago, I believe the firm of Barrow and Williams, who still represents the Bank to this day, does have a few shares; but the amount is insignificant, and it is not one that I believe should be used by his opponents against him.”
