Rigobert raises IMPACS with new US Ambassador

Rigobert raises IMPACS with new US Ambassador

Leader of the opposition, Dr. Gale Rigobert, today met with the Ambassador of the United States of America to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean and the OECS, Linda S. Taglialatela.

Ambassador Taglialatela paid a courtesy call on Dr. Rigobert, a customary gesture after new diplomats present their letters of credence to the Governor General.

The Ambassador met with the Prime Minister and officials of government earlier.

During today’s meeting Rigobert reaffirmed the commitment of her opposition United Workers Party (UWP) to strengthening relations with the United States.

The Opposition Leader also expressed gratitude for the ongoing mutually beneficial relationship between Saint Lucia and the United States.

Rigobert thanked the new Ambassador for the USA’s unwavering commitment to Saint Lucia’s development and Washington’s benevolence towards the people of this country.

She raised lingering concerns about the IMPACS report which continues to cast a shadow over the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) and the people of Saint Lucia.

She reiterated what she described as the Prime Minister’s “wholly irresponsible” handling of the IMPACS report and his mudding of the issue.

Rigobert reaffirmed the UWP’s desire to see the IMPACS matter through to its logical judicial conclusion so that all parties concerned could “breathe more easily”.

    Wow…Good going Rigobert.

    You are so Patriotic to our Nation and the people who you want to represent, that you would spill your guts to any outside Nation without they even asking.

    Are you really representing Saint Lucians or the US?
    Who exactly are you representing?

    Now I can see clearly why you were so badly treated by Allen Chastanet, when he wanted to take up the leadership position.

    Remember this, in Allen Chastanet’s eyes, you will always be looked down at. Because of the obvious.

    Stop “Cooning” for the Americans. And show your patriotism to your Nation.

    And those are the people who claim to have our “backs”, when they are ever so quick in helping to destroy the reputation of this country to any outside Governments, without even asking?

    Are they even representing Saint Lucia?

    Gale you did the right thing, Persons fail to realize that we have a country to protect, the SLP started the issue and we cannot run from it. The hacks are crying foul because the know that the US is watching. The UWP has to be committed to seeing this dark cloud hanging over our head.

    There is nothing to hide Gale. Infact I am sure she knows more about the IMPACS report than you and all lucians. Lucians can be so blind! We need to face the issues. We can not hide and act like we are perfect. The US is very much interested in this report. The know the contents. Gail I am possitive you dont know the contents. This needs to be fixed. We need to build back St. Lucia.

      But you have forgotten it was the UWP who orchestrated those killings, right?
      They (and she included) was in office when they sent the RSLPF to do this.



      This is why NO one takes the UWP seriously.
