Dead AUA Student!

AUA sued me for warning students, by
posting news articles about crime on Antigua!

AUA's defamation claim states:
pg 10, #54 "p. The locality of AUA s full of
"rape, murder, fraud, and government corruption"


Federal judges in Detroit and the Sixth Circuit Court concluded:

"Antigua, however, is not "concerning the plaintiff."
Moreover, Woodward presents evidence indicating that there is significant
rape, murder, fraud, and government corruption on Antigua."

Court Opinion and Order:

This is one of many frivolous claims AUA made against me, an AUA student!

Bound, Gagged and Raped

A teenage girl was raped and her brother tortured after the duo were set upon by three masked men on the Pares Main Road, as they made their way home from computer class, on Monday night.

The men were traveling in to separate vehicles - a black jeep and a pick-up believed to have been purple. The girl was whisked away in the jeep, to an isolated spot in the village and reported that she was raped, at knife-point, by one of the men and then left to fend for herself.

Her brother, meanwhile, told officers that he was bound, gagged and placed in the pick-up and left in another unpopulated area.

Welcome to Antigua--Welcome to Rape, Bribes, Money-Laundering, Corruption

Last week, a teen-age girl who gave a videotaped interview accusing Prime Minister Lester Bird of having sex with her filed a lawsuit accusing Bird of statutory rape, abduction, conspiracy and sexual assault.

The same day, the British Broadcasting Corp. agreed to pay Bird damages of 50,000 pounds (about $78,000) after airing unfounded allegations that he spent government health funds on cosmetic surgery and was involved in gun-running and drug-trafficking.

This summer, copies of the girl's videotape made their way around the island. The tape contained criminal allegations against Bird and several public officials, including a junior finance minister, the commissioner of police and other members of the police force, and a handful of private citizens.

The girl, Monique Kim Barua, said she met Bird and his younger brother, Ivor Bird, who was convicted of cocaine-smuggling seven years ago, at a party in 1999 and had a sexual relationship first with Ivor Bird, then with the prime minister. She was 12 at the time. She also alleged that she made payments for cocaine deals on behalf of the prime minister, his brother and a governing party senator.

According to prosecutors Stanford bribed Antiguan officials with money, free flights and “expensive Super Bowl tickets” to run interference and keep his operation from being disclosed to U.S. regulators.

The men were traveling in to separate vehicles - a black jeep and a pick-up believed to have been purple. The girl was whisked away in the jeep, to an isolated spot in the village and reported that she was raped, at knifepoint, by one of the men and then left to fend for herself.

Her brother, meanwhile, told officers that he was bound, gagged and placed in the pick-up and left in another unpopulated area.

Welcome to Antigua--Welcome to Rape, Bribes, Money-Laundering, Corruption

Last week, a teen-age girl who gave a videotaped interview accusing Prime Minister Lester Bird of having sex with her filed a lawsuit accusing Bird of statutory rape, abduction, conspiracy and sexual assault.

The same day, the British Broadcasting Corp. agreed to pay Bird damages of 50,000 pounds (about $78,000) after airing unfounded allegations that he spent government health funds on cosmetic surgery and was involved in gun-running and drug-trafficking.

This summer, copies of the girl's videotape made their way around the island. The tape contained criminal allegations against Bird and several public officials, including a junior finance minister, the commissioner of police and other members of the police force, and a handful of private citizens.

The girl, Monique Kim Barua, said she met Bird and his younger brother, Ivor Bird, who was convicted of cocaine-smuggling seven years ago, at a party in 1999 and had a sexual relationship first with Ivor Bird, then with the prime minister. She was 12 at the time. She also alleged that she made payments for cocaine deals on behalf of the prime minister, his brother and a governing party senator.

The man is Rupert Edwars, fondly known as 'Pert', known to be a quiet and respectable member of the community in which he lives on New Street.
