Cajeton Hood

The Keith Mitchell-led New National Party (NNP) government has decided to move against one of its harshest critics.

Local attorney-at-law, Cajeton Hood is to lose a parcel of land that was sold to him by the State in 1998 and which he turned around and sold to a hotelier in the south of the island in 2006.

Hood confirmed to GRENADA TODAY that he had received a letter from Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands and Forestry, Lana Mc Phail about the decision of government to retake possession of the nearly 11, 000 sq. ft of land at True Blue in the south of the island.

The move against Hood came from the Lands ministry that is headed by Deputy Prime Minister, Gregory Bowen. According to Hood, he had entered into a mortgage arrangement with  Capital Bank International to raise the necessary funds to purchase the Crown lands from government.

P.S. Lana Mc Phail

Under the Crown Lands Act, persons who purchase lots from government are mandated to seek the permission of Cabinet in order to sell the land. Hood, a former Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister, purchased the lands from government while serving as a member of the civil service.

He quit the service a few years ago to enter into private practice after qualifying as a barrister-at-law. Speculation is rife that the move against Hood was sparked off by his open criticisms of Prime Minister Mitchell and his NNP regime in recent months.

The ex-civil servant has called for the Grenadian leader to demit office in light of allegations made that he accepted $US500, 000.00 in Switzerland in June 2000 from an international crook to make him a Grenadian diplomat.

Hood is also the lawyer representing Permanent Secretary, William Joseph who brought an embarrassing malfeasance case against Prime Minister Mitchell and several Cabinet Ministers for the manner in which they have been treating him in the service.

In addition, the local attorney was retained by a property owner in St. George's to take legal action against government over the Green Bridge issue near to the national stadium at Queen's Park.

Government insiders have told this newspaper that the move against Hood could also affect several other persons who purchased crown lands and sold them without getting the necessary permission from government.
