Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre told reporters on Monday on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting that former Senate President Stanley Felix is dealing with his defence.

“Mr. Felix is on bail, and he is dealing with his defence. Our law says you are innocent until proven guilty,” Pierre observed.

“Mr. Felix is dealing with his defence and he is considered innocent until proven guilty,” the Castries East MP observed.

Police formally charged Felix under section 376 of the Criminal Code of Saint Lucia, which deals with perverting the course of justice.

Last week, the court granted the Attorney at Law $15,000 bail in cash or suitable surety.

The court also imposed reporting conditions and travel restrictions.

And Prime Minister Pierre advised the Governor General to revoke Felix’s appointment and relieve him of his Senatorial duties in the Upper House of Parliament.

An Office of the Prime Minister release said an announcement would be forthcoming regarding his successor.

“We’ve said that we give him time to see about his legal matters,” was Prime Minister Pierre’s response regarding relieving Felix of his duties, given the ‘innocent until proven guilty’ principle.

  1. I appreciate this response. Now, “they who feels it know” . Saint Lucia is fast becoming a place where some, “Wicked Rich” people “buy” justice with the aid of some, “No Conscience Lawyers” with big titles, for example, some of them help steal families properties. Some of these people feel money will cushion their karma, I am just waiting to see them on their bed of affliction (sickness) to hear them call people to ask for forgiveness and beg God for mercy…because I’m old enough to know that’s how most of them end up (ailing, diseased, mentally ill ecetera). May God help the real innocent ones out there.
