KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, May 28, IWN – A former minister of construction in Cuba who is working at the Argyle international airport lost a lot of vital information when his laptop computer was stolen from his house last week.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves told Parliament of the crime on Monday and decried such action.

“Mr. Speaker, I don’t understand some of our people you know. This man is doing his Ph.D in concrete works. He has a lot of his information on his laptop. He also has on his laptop all the specification for the asphalt plant and for the concrete batching plant. You know somebody went in the man’s dwelling where he is and stole his laptop with all his information. It just happened this week gone here,” said Gonsalves, who is also Minister of National Security and Legal Affairs.

“There are a lot of things, I don’t talk about them … You think this pain is easy to bear, when you have somebody of that quality coming [and] somebody just go and steal the man’s laptop? The laptop itself is nothing significant. It is the material you have on it,” Gonsalves further said.

  1. Very sorry to hear of this loss, but I hope it serves as an eye opener to the PM as to the level of crime that has taken over our community. By the way, his loss is no more painful and extreme that the local farmer who is struggling to make ends meet for his family and someone steals his goat, cattle or sheep, or even his hoe.

  2. You see, Gonsalves immediately assumes it was a Vincentian, when it could well be a Venezuelan or fellow Cuban. Remember we have had a lot of Venzuelan scallywags here, gold rip offs, burglary, drug shipments, murder. Most of them have been sent home with only a slight telling off.

  3. “He also has on his laptop all the specification for the asphalt plant and for the concrete batching plant.”. Here we go again, another lie for a 12 months delay for the Argyle earthport opening, what you will hear next is that the US$80M is ready but the laptop with all the plans gone. If this incident really happened it would’ve been silenced, or maybe he wants us to say that crime is so rampant in SVG that not even the ministry of National Security can secure foreigners working for the government where the government provide accommodation for them.

    A former minister of construction in anywhere lost vital information when his laptop was stolen? If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    The man is doing his PhD in concrete works and he lost information on a computer? Then he must have already done his doctorate in idiocy.

  5. Remember those Venezuelans who bought gold on the streets of Kingstown, two years they were there, no work permits, no trading licenses, no VAT registration, never pulled up by immigration. Whilst people sold them their jewellery [and other peoples jewellery, stolen and borrowed] one of their little mob picked pockets.

    Who provided the protection that those people must of had? Why were they allowed to leave without prosecution? Where did they get the large sums of money they used for buying?

    Why didn’t the police do something? the uncontrolled uncontrollable squad, why did they not take them in for questioning and beat and torture admissions of guilt from them?

    It stank and still stinks!

    Peter, no body, but no body who goes to Cuba stays there. Cuba is the greatest place in the whole wide
    world, especially to Vincentians who study there Slater included. Which one stays?

    I know a top-flight Cuban surgeon who came here on assignment. When his time was up he went to
    America and happily worked in a vet office – as a hand – because he couldn’t pass his exams.

    Cubans leave Cuba – at the risk of death.


    By the way, that “loss of information story” is a sad commentary on the persons who tell it.

    Back up, backup back up and then back up.

    And to make it more embarrassing they said “vital” information.


    Who is more the fool? The fool or the fool who follows the fool?

  7. Patrick Ferrari, the LEGACY of Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution will OUTLIVE you a THOUSAND TIMES, because of the CONTRIBUTION the Cuban people have made to the DEVELOPMENT of the Caribbean, SOUTH AMERICA and Africa.

    You and the other NDP NUTS do not have a clue.
