WATCH: Montoute, Mondesir Clash Live On Air

spot_img

Two former government ministers who served in a previous United Workers Party (UWP) administration clashed on Wednesday night during Newsmaker Live on DBS Television.

Dr. Keith Mondesir called the programme to take issue with his former cabinet colleague Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute, the Newsmaker Live guest.

Mondesir felt that Montoute was unfairly attacking former Prime Minister and current Castries North MP Stephenson King and Castries Central MP Richard Frederick during the programme.

Frederick and King served in a UWP administration but are currently in the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) cabinet.

In 2009, Opposition Leader Dr. Kenny Anthony successfully filed a lawsuit against Mondesir, then Health Minister.

According to the case, Mondesir attempted to gain duty-free concessions illegally by using tax concessions intended for his guest house, Tuxedo Villas, on his private residence.

The Saint Lucia government lost an appeal at the OECS highest court.

And Mondesir later repaid fifteen thousand dollars to the office of the Comptroller of Customs for duty-free concessions.

  3. Mondesir has no shame, he is a professional ass-licker. who in the right mind would defend King and Frederick in today’s political episode.

  4. I am tired of Montoute making silly demands and accusations. He is not offering any solutions. Bankrupt, self centered politician and that is why he was voted out. This crime surge will not disappear overnight. I just want the government and police to keep the pressure on the criminals.
