  1. I recall writing several articles for the ‘Caymanian Compass in 1998-99 regarding the Dart family enterprises and its ability to avoid paying taxes. I also wrote that Ken Dart had purchased a large villa along Seven Mile Beach, and planned to move many Dart company headquarters to Grand Cayman. Apparently, forewarned was not forearmed. Eventually, the islands will be “Grand Dart Island and surrounding communities.”
