What integrity? It's being hocked on ebay...

To me, somehow that makes it worse that it was awarded not to him, but the father posthumously.

I mean, if the family needs assistance, surely someone that integral to the party/nation could and should get it. This just reeks of tactlessness

Lets see how high Ansa Mcal is really going to bid for this thing.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Order-of-Republ ... rmvSB=true

^ its gone up to $30,000 USD as we speak thats nearly $200,000 TTD. Is Ansa Mcal the only company putting money towards this cause?

Interestingly:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/gov ... enses.html

Not Allowed: Government-issued medals and certificates for medals, including the Air Force Cross, Congressional Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Purple Heart, or Silver Star. This also applies to a medal's associated buttons, ribbons, or rosettes.

So its fair game.

I think those are just examples and it is a Government issued medal AND certificate. Maybe they only have the ban on US medals and certificates though. :/

the current seller is a collector of sorts, if you check out the other items they're selling. Would like to kno how they really got the medal from the family.

Expert: What we have here is the finest quality craftsmanship out of the small island republic. The medal has loads of history attached to it and would be a fine addition to any collection.

PS: So how much were you thinking of getting for it.

Seller: $1000

PS: Remember I'll have to get it cleaned, and it will take up valuable shelf space and that could be a while as most people think Trinidad is a city in Cuba, Best I can offer is $50.

Seller: I was really hoping I'd get closer to $1000, maybe $950.

PS: Well seeing as it came with the official documentation, final offer $75.

Seller: I'll take it.

Scene afterwards outside the store. Camera talking to Seller

Seller: Well I was really hoping to get more for it, but I came with nothing and got $75 in cash on me now, and I'm happy.

Re: Adrian's sons widow sold the medal

Postby ttexpat » March 11th, 2016, 12:04 am

Adrian's son in Canada, Robert Abidh-Waugh, accepted the ORTT in honor of his father in 2012, in Trinidad. Robert passed away less than a year later in early 2013 and his sham widow (whom he had a sham marriage with two years prior), Cori Staden, had the ORTT in her possession. She controlled the "Rienzi" estate after Robert Abidh-Waugh's death. She falsely started using the Abidh-Waugh surname to profit on it where possible.

Robert's relatives were desperately trying to retrieve (even purchase) the ORTT back from her in order to return it to Trinidad where it rightfully belonged. She decided to profit from her husband's death.

This is her Linkedin page (with a picture of the late Robert Abidh-Waugh in the background) - I'm sure Robert Abidh-Waugh would be turning in his grave knowing what she did to the ORTT:
