Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Economic Affairs, Planning and Social Security, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has confirmed that the statements made by Senator Claudius Francis are not inconsistent with information which has reached him.
According to the Prime Minister,
“I have listened to members of the opposition calling for the resignation of Senator Claudius Francis regarding statements made on his Talk Show on Friday, 18 September 2015. As I stated during an interview on MBC Television on Monday, 21 September, I was aware of the situation even prior to Senator Francis’ utterances. There was nothing in Senator Francis’ statements which are inconsistent with the information which had reached me previously.
The issues which Senator Francis raised involve a small minority of police officers bent on embarrassing the Government of Saint Lucia for political ends. I am at the moment awaiting the return to island of the Acting Commissioner of Police and will request a thorough investigation into the matter.”
