Ponzi link to Barbados

nationnews.com: "AN IRISHMAN SOCIALITE with an upscale villa in Barbados, Breifne O’Brien, has been accused of bilking investors in a Ponzi scheme.

Sometime this month, investigators should wrap up an extensive probe into one of the largest alleged Ponzi schemes in Ireland’s history, and when they do the Director of Public Prosecutions will have to decide if to bring a criminal case against O’Brien, who used to visit Barbados on a regular basis, staying in his villa with his wife and children."
