P.U.P. Followed Paper Trail to Anwar Barrow

News Five reached out to Anwar Barrow after the P.U.P.’s press conference and asked him specific questions, including if he is the owner of Goodlee, or if he has any ties to Brads through Goodlee or ties directly to Goodlee Limited.  Anwar responded to our WhatsApp message, but did not answer any of the questions. He did, however say, “I haven’t seen these allegations, but I would say that it is clear that certain members of the P.U.P. have a political vendetta against me. This is politics at its nastiest, leading up to the general elections.” We sent him documents that show financial transactions with his name on it. We asked again if he was the owner of Goodlee, but our message was left unread.  Opposition Leader John Briceño spoke of the documents and cash transfers to a number of companies linked to Anwar.

“Reliable information shows significant transfers, eight hundred thousand dollars from Goodlee to Quick Stop in 2018. Reliable sources tell us that significant transfers, four hundred and seventeen thousand dollars from Good Lee to Creative Content were made in 2019. Credible information significant transfer one million, one hundred and fifty thousand dollars from Good Lee to Prudential in 2020. Quick Stop, Creative Content and Prudential Management are all connected to if not owned b Gregory Anwar Barrow, the son of the Prime Minister. We are informed that in March 2020 Goodlee had five fixed deposits in a bank in Belize. Each fix deposit was valued at one million, one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for a total of five million, seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The license issued to Brads  Gaming is dated the twenty-sixth June 2020. However it states that the exclusive license is deemed to take effect from April first 2020. This raises the question, why back date the effective date of the contract? Information shared with us shows on thirty-first March 2020, the day before, Good Lee paid one million fifty thousand dollars to Prudential Management. Was it a coincidence that the day before the second brads contract became effective, one million fifty thousand dollars was paid to Prudential management, a company owned by Anwar Barrow? But there is more, on the first April 2020 Prime Minister Barrow asked the Governor General to impose a nationwide curfew to response to the national emergency caused by COVID-19. Documents we have seen shows that on the second April 2020 the day that the national emergency was imposed Prudential Management wired one million dollars to Anwar Barrow. We have also discovered that on the very day that the one million dollars was paid to Mister Anwar Barrow and while foreign exchange was already scarce, five hundred thousand US dollars was wired to an account in his name held at Stanford Federal Credit Union at eight sixty in Embarcedro Road, California. I can disclosed that evidence we have seen reveals another five hundred thousand US dollars was wired to Anwar Barrow account held at Stanford Federal Credit Union in California. This amount was wired on March twenty-fourth, 2020 one day after the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in San Pedro Ambergris and the Philip Goldson International Airport was closed.”
