UWP To Continue Pressing For Independent Probe Into RSLPF Sexual Harassment Allegations


The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has vowed to continue pressing for an independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).

The most recent allegations concern a senior male police officer.

Former UWP Castries East candidate Fortuna Belrose told a news conference last week that the party was not pronouncing the officer guilty.

“We’re not saying the gentleman is guilty. What we’re saying is that the state, the country, wants the assurance that the gentleman who is being put there is above board and that the victims who have come out are being addressed in the right way,” Belrose told reporters.

She also spoke of the need for a report and action based on the document.

“Let’s put ourselves in their shoes,” Belrose said regarding the alleged victims.

And in response to reports that former Police Commissioners were aware of the allegations, Belrose said there was the need to ask what the problem was.

“Who are we protecting? Why are we doing this?” The former Minister stated.

She said the entire opposition United Workers Party felt outraged and would continue to press the issue.

  2. Sexual misconduct allegations are serious allegations and should not be dealt with based on political affiliations or societal status. The law has made provisions for such allegations and therefore the accused gentleman should be dealt with accordingly – the same way any other member of society would have been treated. No more no less.

    The victims should also be treated fairly and in the same manner as all other victims of sexual assaults. No more no less. No one, absolutely no one is and should be above the law.

  3. Let the victims make an official report to to the CID department. Since when were these accusations made? Why were they not reported to the CID? Why is only now the victims want to talk?
    By the way did the uwps say anything about Janine and the accuser who touched her breast? Shame.

  4. Where is Catherine Silly? Moomoo tablets when their party in power. Women’s rights in the garbage.

  5. Where are all the women advocates like Catherine Flavia Dujon not a word from them guess they are no longer advocates any more. Now is the time to Raise your voice.

  6. All allegations of rape, sexual assaults and mole stations should be treated with the solemn seriousness they deserve.

    Stop making this a partisan political issue. I wish that the people supporting the victims were not of any political stripe.

    Those of you who are casting doubt on the veracity of the victims are victim using them twice. There is a need for an independent inquiry and let the chips fall where they may.

  7. Due to the number of lies uwps are saying on a daily basis I cannot believe anything they are saying.
