Mary Isaac, the endorsed United Workers Party (UWP) candidate for Castries South, has called on the authorities to appoint someone to act in the capacity of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The current holder of the post, Victoria Charles-Clarke, is currently on preretirement leave.
Charles-Clarke will vacate the post in March next year.
Isaac said she would like to see someone acting as DPP to take action on the IMPACS report, based on the investigation into alleged extra-judicial killings by some members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).
“When somebody goes on preretirement leave somebody else comes in and replaces the person and that is what must happen. It doesn’t matter that the person has moved on, the office remains and the office must be staffed,” Isaac asserted.
The former President of the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) also expressed the opinion that the IMPACS report should be made available to the opposition, the Governor General and other “key” individuals and institutions.
Isaac noted that some persons who have allegedly been named in the report have not seen it.
“ A Commissioner of Police has left his post based on hearsay and I do not know that he ever saw the report,” she declared.
