Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony has said that former National Security Minister, Guy Mayers, more than any other person in authority in Saint Lucia, is responsible for the events that led to the IMPACS report.
Addressing the annual conference of delegates of his ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) last night in Vieux Fort, Anthony declared that one day soon Mayers will have to answer for his actions.
He accused the former Minister, who is the current Chairman of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP), of abusing his authority and using his office to protect his interests.
“No matter how much we warned him and warned Guy Mayers, don’t politicize crime, he continued with his inept ways and bad habits and we have sadly seen the results of his fiddling with crime leaving behind a legacy that compromised our relationship with our most important hemispheric partner in security, the United States of America,” Anthony told his party supporters.
He recalled that he, Anthony, had kept quiet on the “utterings” of Mayers, hoping that the former National Security Minister would do the “honourable thing” and keep quiet about what took place under the former UWP government.
“Every rope has an end,” Anthony asserted.
