LPM accuses Acting Police Chief of attempting to frustrate protest march plans

The Lucian Peoples Movement (LPM), has accused Acting Police Commissioner, Errol Alexander, of attempting to frustrate the party’s plans for a peaceful protest march.

LPM leader Therold Prudent told the Times that the party is in receipt of a September 8, 2015 letter from Alexander, in which he raises questions about the interchangeable use of the words “public protest” and “public march”.

According to Prudent, the Acting Police Chief asserted that the name or names of the persons staging the activity were not mentioned, nor were the point of departure and the purpose of the activity.

However the LPM leader felt that Alexander’s response represented an attempt to frustrate his party’s planned October 8, 2015 protest.

While conceding that that the LPM did omit to mention the purpose for the march, Prudent told the Times he felt it was disrespectful for the Acting Police Commissioner to raise questions about the organizers, since the party’s September 7, 2015 letter was written on paper bearing its letterhead and signed by the LPM Chairman.

“He cannot pretend that he does not know the LPM,” Prudent said, noting that the group is a registered political party that has been assigned a political symbol by the Electoral Department.

The LMP leader declared that the party letter requesting permission for the march did clearly state plans to begin the activity from 4PM at the Vigie playing field and proceed along the John Compton Highway to Derek Walcott square.

Prudent also took issue with what he said was a request from the Acting Police Chief in his response, requiring information in relation to an estimate of how many persons would attend the march.

He told the Times that the LPM intends to comply tomorrow only with Alexander’s request to state the purpose of the protest march, which the LPM omitted to do.
