Shams says Co-defendants suffering

The Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Lambirds Academy, Doctor Iftekhar Shams, has declared that his three co-defendants in the Lambirds controversy are suffering in jail.

The three, Kumar Batukbhai Chadasama, Ashwin Kanji Patel, and Gurjeet Singh Vilkhu,  along with Shams, were  jointly charged with human trafficking.

“They are suffering like hell,” Shams, who is out on bail in connection with the joint human trafficking charge, told the Times in an interview today.

He declared that the men, who are totally innocent, are crying every day after being in jail for some three years.

Shams had a money laundering charge against him dismissed, while the matter of obtaining property by deception involving him was concluded recently via mediation, with several Asian students being reimbursed cash they paid to Lambirds Academy.

The students claimed that they paid at least US$9,000 each to an agent from their region to secure a place at Lambirds Academy  in Gros Islet,  where they were supposed to have been  trained in hospitality management and given job placements  in the United States of America after completing their training.

Shams accused local authorities of dragging out the Lambirds Academy matter.

    Nice..Evil Chastanet will house them at Coco palm in Ultimate comfort, while you continue to exploit the depraved sociopath mind of Evil Chastanet. At least you are aware he isn’t a Saint Lucian (but a French National) and doesn’t swear any patriotic strongarm to this island.
    You both are foreigners trying to get your cut. Hence why you are so embolden to make such requests.

    They should join you Shams to the three that are in the jail so you would not have the time to try getting them out. You too need to serve your time.

    So all of the commentators above have decided in the court of public opinion that Shams is guilty, whereas the independent Judges (not a part of either of the administration), who has all the proof in front of them about the case, dropped two main charges after looking at all the evidence, necessary permissions, presence or absence of any wrongdoing etc. A true case of prosecution in the court of public opinion (prosecution, Judge and Jury, all in one). The court couldn’t even find him guilty of obtaining by deception, the easiest one to prove of the three charges against hi. So it is obvious that he has been framed like Jamshidi. How do you prove the only remaining charge of Human trafficking, when the students came with Visa, on international airlines, passing through immigration, living freely to be able to complain, run away etc. This is not human trafficking in any law book in the world. Give this guy a break. We should own up to the huge mistake we made, the wrong we had done to these four innocent individuals and rectify it asap.

    This man is mad talking all bs about his folks suffering in jail soon the courts gonna just drop this case as always. He said in his country it’s deaf for him so why try to traffic people and give them false hope take all their money and feel it’s ok to do it in st lucia. I would jail him for life Shams.

    What is this guy still doing on the Island if he has proven to be a scam. Even though he paid the students back the money the scam remains the same. Let the guy leave St Lucia and try the other 3 criminals asap and send them to their home land. St Lucia going and take all crooks all over the world and these people are teaching their locals all the tricks they are doing now. The word is CRIME. Get smart government and do not sell your CITIZENSHIP. The pennies you are getting is not worth it. The only people ceasing to becone citizens are the ones who realize they can exploit St Lucia and St Lucians. Wake up
