UWP Plans To Write International Bodies Regarding RSLPF Sexual Harassment Allegations


The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) plans to write to international organisations regarding sexual harassment allegations against a high-ranking member of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), should the officer become police commissioner.

The UWP’s first deputy leader Guy Joseph made the disclosure Sunday night.

Joseph was addressing an opposition town hall meeting in Babonneau.

“We will have to write to every organisation in the world and let them know this is a lawless country,” the former Castries South East MP told his audience, noting that there were four complaints against the officer.

Joseph declared that Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre had forgotten that when the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) was in opposition, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony threatened to write dissuading investors from coming to Saint Lucia over alleged government corruption.

“Alleged corruption, not proven corruption,” the former Economic Development Minister noted.

Joseph said the UWP had not written to any foreign organisations, but would do so if the police officer accused of sexual harassment became commissioner.

  1. Why haven’t the victims made reports to the police rather than their union. Not saying that nothing never happened but this just doesn’t make sense. To want the p.m to launch a probe into allegations of a crime, where as the crime was never reported.

  2. Joseph, you and your childish politics…your gutter tactics is not welcomed in Saint Lucia. You behave like an infantile pillock…what kind of politicians does our nation produce? After we have to suffer the scourge of crime, poor leadership, now we have to suffer idiots who just want to make a sound bite for sound bite sake…? Nous Sommes Tous finis…

  3. Sick and tired of the two political parties. As for the past 50 years is not anything that has been done to improve the lifes of the African st Lucian people

  4. UWPs like this Guy DO NOT have the alleged victims’ interest at heart. They are opportunists trying to score points and will grasp at all straws to try to stay afloat. I remember, a few years ago, after UWP was voted out, Allen said that he was going to write all outside organizations regarding St. Lucia. The same thing here! Is that having the people’s interest at heart? Absolutely NOT! Y’all will (not) be enjoying another 5 years in the wilderness. Take that to the bank and lie in it like dat (a la Jouk Bwa) !

  5. Didn’t we learn from the IMPACTS report that involving outside parties in our matters is generally not a good idea. I’m tired of both of these parties. I understand that matters need to be dealt with but we don’t need to further erode the moral of the RSLPF than it already has been.

  6. So u people refuse to clean up your all own mess and reporting to who? This is what happens when u did not really have no school sense. I did not say sense. I said school sense. There are things that idiots must be taught.

  7. Meanwhile Katherine Silly is probably campaigning whilst pretending to be standing for the protection of women from sexualising predators. I guess if the predator is SLP it’s ok. Notice Angel, Mary and Lisa don’t seem to care about overt sexual harassment either. The SLP protect their victory by any means necessary perhaps protecting criminals in their midst if need be

  8. Nonsense alone! SLP writing to the Embassy is what got us Impacs and Leahy law sanctions. I remember when in opposition SLP government said they would write to investors, now you guys are taking a page from that book! Y’all politicians will burn the place down just to rule over the ashes.

  9. I was at the meeting on Sunday at Babonneau, I went with the expectation to hear how the new flambeau, if they get into power will bring some new ideas to the country. I was taken aback to hear crap and crap alone. Rejected politician, Guy Joseph did say anything new to us. I don’t believe I will ever attend such crap again.
    As I have said before we need fresh ideas in the uwp.

  10. When yall do that wouldn’t it hurt the country? How desperate are you guys. Smh. Yall so desperate for power yall ready to burn a whole house just to kill a roach. Smh.
