We are not persuaded Jeannine

We are not persuaded Jeannine

I am deeply troubled by Jeannine Compton-Antoine’s eleventh-hour revelations, where she accuses a fellow UWP colleague of sexually harassing her on government property.

Women have a hard enough time being taken seriously when we report sexual crimes perpetrated against us. It does not advance the cause of victims rights’ when belated and uncorroborated allegations as serious as Jeannine’s are so clearly politically motivated.

This charade from a leader who has stood with suspected abusers and who tragically remained silent when her voice in support for the Sex Offender Registry could have made a real difference.

Now, sadly, we must call into question her true reasons for leaving the United Workers Party. It strains credulity to think she would disavow a party because of stale allegations of sexual harassment, only to join forces with a party whose ranks swell with accused rapists.

We are not persuaded, Jeannine.

    This article is completely lost in space. Not one cohesive thought and clearly the writer has no knowledge of the issues as they exist in St. Lucia. Totally clueless and ill informed is the only way to describe this piece.

    You must be mad. Badly written and you don’t have your facts right. Jeannine is an Independent candidate and not in any party. this is a malicious letter plain and simple

      You could as well say she is in with SLP because she campaigns only against UWP

    ..Compton Antoine is abusing her power of public platforming and reducing sex crimes to petty politics

    I agree with Camille especially as we all know that Jeanine is a person an friend of alvina and the SLP desperately need the Babonneau sit.

    Is it that she wants to encourage people not to vote for Ezekiel so the u.w.p Will loose. The fact she is not a member? Well she have even discouraged my support for her. Though it canbe true but the timing is wrong
