At our last Land Allocation Committee meeting of 18th October, 2016
the issue of the block on the Remigrant Scheme was raised.
This memo is a partial update on the findings so far and
recommendations on the way forward with this scheme. It will be the
first scheme the Land Allocation Committee has a clear understanding
of in terms of allocations, availability and infrastructure costs.
In a memo dated 18th April, 2016 90% allottees in “Remigrant Scheme”
not registered remigrants (attached) I explained that only 12 of 130
allottees listed in the CH&PA remigrant scheme are actual remigrants
at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
(For reasons that have never been properly explained, the first
persons listed as a remigrant were actually allocated a lot on the
West Coast – Intaz & Inderdaie Hussain, Lot 753 De Groot En Klyne
priced at $1,200,000)
An additional 12 persons did not submit an Affidavit of non-ownership
based on the most recent document presented on this scheme. This is
quite troubling as it indicates even the basic requirements were being
breached/ignored by Head of MIS Andre Ally.
On numerous occasions, in words and writing, Andre Ally who ran the
remigrant program admitted that no policy documents exists as it
regards the remigrant scheme and that all directives came from former
Minister Irfaan Ali.
Director of Operations Denise Tudor has no such documents and the
former CEO Myrna Pitt also said no such documents exists.
However, in the most detailed document on the remigrant scheme
presented thus far, Providence Gardens Report (July 13, 2016), page 3
has a curious entry titled The Policy Context.
In a following report I will detail further the grave inconsistencies
and deceptions contained in this report.

Scheme” not registered remigrants.
