“An adventure in absurdity and falsity.” is how Prime Minister Anthony has described the Star Newspaper report questioning whether Commissioner of Police Mr. Vernon Francois was given $5million dollars to retire in the public interest.
At a Press Briefing currently underway, Prime Minister explained that Mr. Francois has opted to retire of his own accord and the process is not yet complete.
“Five million dollars is astronomical. I have roads to build and things to do. As Minister for Finance I have not seen this figure. This is an adventure in absurdity and falsity.”
The Times first broke the story last week, that Vernon Francois had requested retirement as Police Commissioner.
