Gladiator battles Iwer after High Court ruling
Former radio talk show host Ricardo “Gladiator” Welch is threatening to seize $.5 million worth assets of Trinibashment Ltd, owned by calypsonian Iwer George. The money is owed following a January 18, 2012 order handed down by Master Martha Alexander in the High Court. The court ordered Trinibashment to pay Welch damages for breach of contract, wrongful dismissal and loss of publicity in the sum of $394,000, with interest at nine per cent per annum from November 2009 to the date of the Order, plus costs at $60,900.
Welch worked at Trinibashment 91.9 FM as a talk show host. To date, Welch said, George, who is represented by PNM Senator Fitzgerald Hinds has only paid $40,000. Stating that the delay has been causing him undue stress and mental anguish, Welch has threatened to seize George’s assets if the money is not forthcoming. “I have been very patient with George. Now is time for action. I will have to seize his personal assets.”
George: I don’t owe him
Contacted yesterday, George said, “I don’t owe him, is the company that owes him. The lawyers and them dealing with it.” Questioned when payments will be made, George said, “The lawyers called his attorney, and he and my attorney and them dealing with it.”
