Opposition leader Allen Chastanet has called out Castries Central MP Richard Frederick, accusing the Housing Minister of continuing to act as a law unto himself.
“He has no brakes,” the United Workers Party (UWP) leader told a news conference on Tuesday.
According to Chastanet, Frederick continues to do the things that have contributed significantly to the demise of public confidence in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) and the separation between politicians and the police.
The UWP leader recalled that at a news conference last week, his party addressed the situation where Frederick, on his television talk show, said the police were facilitating him in gathering files on citizens.
Chastanet said people are not left to speculate regarding what the Minister would do with the files since Frederick has been on a ‘rampage’ since returning to government.
He accused Frederick of threatening citizens publicly.
But Chastanet lamented that Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and others have said ‘absolutely nothing.’
“In fact, it appears that they have gone out of their way to protect and to give credence and support to what Richard Frederick has done,” the UWP leader told the news conference.
