CASTRIES, Saint Lucia – Friday, January 15, 2016 – Critics or opponents of PM Dr. Kenny Anthony might have felt for him this week.
It was his time to face the scrutiny of the European Union, French and the British officials and sadly the professor was reduced to student status.
It was obvious even with their diplomacy, from their choice of words and seriousness the officials did not mince matters with Dr. Anthony and our Prime Minister has little choice than to follow what was put to him.
However sympathy for Dr. Anthony would have to be short lived as he is in a quandary of his own doing.
He claims seeing an alleged ‘hit list’ even which the police have indicated is not a hit list and has explained why.
It seems fair to say that alleged ‘hit list’ combined with what Dr. Anthony read from the IMPACS report about ‘staged killings’ will contradict any inquest results that says the killings were lawful and that seems to be the juicy bacon the international community is chasing.
Dr. Anthony now stands as conductor, orchestra and audience in this whole soap opera and the music is now his to face and dance to. But unfortunately he has dragged Helen as his dance partner.
The IMPACS report in Dr. Anthony’s domain seems to be used, for attack purposes, whenever and at whomever he sees fit. Was that the intention of the report? A political toy?
He listens to no one and definitely not Mary Francis. Who has he shared the report with? But he, as law professor and minister of finance gives the DPP no evidence and no resources to work with.
So the chickens have come home and the International Community is fast after that juicy bacon.
Meanwhile St. Lucia is caught in a sordid mess from the game called political advantage by any means necessary and at whatever the cost.
We all witnessed the press conference. It was a joint meeting and so why not a joint press briefing as is seen all over the world. Was Dr. Anthony ashamed to have been present? Will he have a press conference of his own?
Should St. Lucians have heard all of that information from the international community and not from our own Prime Minister?
The disrespect continues.
