Misfeasance case – PM consulting his lawyers

Misfeasance case – PM consulting his lawyers

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, is seeking clarification from his lawyers in regard to the misfeasance case against him.

The disclosure has come from the Prime Minister’s Attache, Nancy Charles.

Charles told the Times that she has spoken with Chastanet who is currently in Barbados paying courtesy calls on various embassies there.

She revealed that on Saturday the Prime Minister will be in Trinidad and Tobago for the funeral of former T&T leader, Patrick Manning.

Chastanet is expected back home on Sunday.

Charles said she is hoping that on Monday or sometime next week, the Prime Minister will make a formal statement.

She denied that the misfeasance case is causing any measure of trepidation in the government.

The PM’s Attache said she has heard the concerns of persons who have been calling on the Prime Minister to make a statement.

“It is just a little uncomfortable to find yourself being the Prime Minister of the country and there is a pending case of the state versus the Prime Minister of the country,” Charles asserted.

She described the situation as being “a little ticklish.”

However Charles was of the view that once Chastanet has spoken to his lawyers and the Attorney General as well, there will be a statement.

She noted that she was aware of calls from the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) for Chastanet to ensure that the case continues.

“I don’t know that this is a decision of the Prime Minister,” Charles declared.

She observed that it was a decision for the Attorney General as to how to proceed.

In a ruling handed down on Monday, the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal reinstated a claim against Allen Chastanet, alleging breach of trust and misfeasance in public office.

The action had previously been struck out by the judge hearing the case, which ruling has now been overturned.

On December 10, 2013, the attorney general of Saint Lucia filed a claim, which was amended on January 21, 2014, against Chastanet.

The claim also included Kenneth Cazaubon, former chairman of the Soufriere Town Council.

Several allegations were made in the claim.

Chief among the allegations was that Chastanet, as a government minister and candidate for the United Workers Party (UWP) in the 2011 general elections, was involved in the expenditure of over $38,000 of public funds for personal and political benefit.

    If that’s true, then Allen should pay the money back, but then again, Kenny never paid a cent for all his screw-ups…politicians.

      Relax, it hurts you to see that up to now your begging bowl is still empty. And he only cares for the Syrians, Asians and others with his complexion. You will never get your 40 acres and your mule. ROTFLMBAO!

    Personally, let us hear all the charges against Kenny, then we will be in a much more sincere position to ask our New PM to account for $38,000.00 while we allow million to go down the drain.

    Kenny claimed that he lost a whole brief-case of US$ whilst at an airport in Guyana, yet he speaks of missuse and abuse of public funs by our beloved PM.

    I am almost certain that in typical lawyer’s fashion, Kenny’s response to the above will be it wasn’t public funds involved at the airport in Guyana.

    If Kenny was so irreponsible with funds that an organization placed in his trust, which he forgot outside a washroom at an airport in Guyan, God alone knows what has happened with Kenny being entrusted with public funds public funds.
