IMPACS backlash caused by PM – Chastanet

Allen Chastanet, the leader of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP), has blamed Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony for creating the current backlash from the IMPACS case.

The UWP leader has said that Anthony mishandled the affair, creating the backlash.

“The reason why we have found ourselves in this position is because the Prime Minister continues to go out and inform people that our police force is corrupt, without providing any evidence,” Chastanet told the Times.

The UWP leader asserted that because the Prime Minister has made those allegations, the United States and other countries are watching to see what Anthony will do about it.

According to Chastanet, the Prime Minister continues to misguide people as to what transpired with IMPACS.

He recalled that Anthony had clearly articulated that there is a separation between the executive and the judicial system.

However Chastanet noted that the Prime Minister had chosen to speak on the report of the IMPACS investigation into alleged extra judicial police killings, where that  should have been the role of the DPP.

The UWP leader asserted that the PM should have passed the evidence to the DPP and provided resources to the DPP’s office to deal with the IMPACS case.

He accused Anthony of not allowing the judicial system to deal with the IMPACS matter and tarnishing the investigation by making it political.

“He is the person we have to hold accountable for the state we are in right now and he is the one who in my mind acted unconstitutionally by providing only propaganda,” Chastanet declared.

      Crap is Crap no matter who’s in power! SLP or UWP. But it is unbelievable that some people or so hell bent in supporting a party, that they totally ignore the obvious truth or have convenient amnesia! The period 2006 to 2011 was the worse governance or lack there of in the history of Saint Lucia and that’s a fact!! No matter how you try to spin it.

          The TRUTH is like a dagger….you are still talking about party and colours and labeling someone for speaking the truth. Go figure! Not even Sir Compton would have sided with that particular bunch of men that made up the Government, even under a UWP flag.Both parties have failed miserably but that particular period was a new low! Now we have to decide as citizen/voters who is the lesser of two evils. Sad and unfortunate but true.
