Bay Condominiums West
Thomas, VI 00802
BY CERTIFIED MAIL, RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED
early March, 2004, I was hand delivered a letter from each of you by Frank Barry. In violation of Section 919 of the VI Condominium
Act (printed below), your letters forbid me my right to perform a complete examination of
the books of Sapphire Bay Condominiums West (SBCW). Frank
Barry continues to deny me the access to the books and records based upon your letters. Frank Barry and each of you continue to commit a
criminal offence by denying me my rights under this law.
This letter is to warn you that each of
you and Frank Barry are in criminal violation of the law, and each of you and Frank Barry
is obstructing justice under the laws of the US Virgin Islands. I believe that each of you and Frank Barry is
subject to arrest, prosecution, and imprisonment, if you continue to deny me full access
to the books of SBCW.
I must have full access to the books,
without time limits, and to the full extent allowed by the Condominium Act.
have discovered extensive financial irregularities (adding up to over $1,000,000 over the
last eight years) and widespread unsafe and illegal conditions in many units of SBCW. Your continued denial of my right to examine the
books is preventing me from further documenting these financial irregularities and
therefore is an obstruction of justice. Your
continued denial of my right to examine the books, in light of the illegal and unsafe
situation at SBCW, is an obstruction of justice, and is likely to increase the probability
of serious bodily harm or even death to the occupants of units affected.
unsafe and unlawful practices are widespread at SBCW.
Many of the SBCW units are unsafe because of practices committed at SBCW under the
management of Frank Barry. I must continue my
investigation, and unit owners must be notified of this unlawful and unsafe situation
regarding their units.
believe that Steve Kerschner is a party to the financial irregularities and the serious
unlawful and unsafe activities under the direction of Frank Barry. Perhaps other board members are also a party to
them, I dont know.
I fear that Frank Barry, once it is
known that he is responsible for the serious irregularities,
will flee the Island with much of the bank account.
The SBCW Board has allowed Frank Barry and Steve Kerschner to have SBCW check
cashing authority for $25,000 on a single signature.
of you went along with Steve Kerschner and Frank Barry when they hired Andrew L.
Capdeville to send me those letters full of lies about the window situation. All of you went along with Steve Kerschner and
Frank Barry, when it was clear that Steve Kerschner was lying (for eight years) to the
owners and the other board members about his ownership of a SBCW unit, and he should have
been removed from the board. Why did you go
each of you prepared and signed those letters denying me access to the books, based on
faulty advice from that dishonest lawyer, Andrew L. Capdeville. (See: http://www.sapphirebaycondos.com/VI%20Bar.htm). Dont you
read what you sign? Dont you know that
what you did was flagrantly in violation of the SBCW by-laws and in violation of the
Condominium Law, which by law takes precedence over the SBCW by-laws?
each of you have been that dishonest? Or that
any event, I expect each of you to write me or email me (email@example.com)
withdrawing your letters denying my access to the books of SBCW. I expect to be contacted by you soon with the
word that I am being allowed to examine the books in complete compliance with the
do not intend to wait long before taking additional steps to force compliance with the
