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.
