The Turks and Ciacos Sun Newspaper further reports that, "due to careless utterances in some quarters, there had been a lack of confidence not only in Crown Land sales but also private land sales as well, since such comments were broad and general that they frightened off potential investors."
One can only conclude that the author is referring to Shaun Malcolm, the aforementioned political activist and Crown land complainant who runs a local blog called TCI Journal. TCI Journal has been particularly brutal writing suggestive blogs and innuendo against developers and foreign investors.
As it turns out, the foreign investment community has come out of this debacle asking for certainty. Land deals with developers were negotiated and approved by the appropriate officials, and as such, developers eagerly and legitimately began multi-million dollar projects in earnest and under the color of authority. Great Britain has not yet fully addressed this matter with foreign investors nor has it made any declarations asserting the land's bona fide transfer.
Great Britain, now being in control of the government in Turks and Caicos, is obligated to these land developers and businessmen/women to make certain that they are secure and made whole so that they can continue the projects for which they have duly invested, for the betterment of Turks and Caicos.
The glory days of Turks & Caicos Islands' robust economy can return. However, what incentive do new investors have, considering the existing investors are not only not being supported but are being unfairly judged?
