Allen Chastanet describes IMPACS report as ‘horrible’

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has described the report compiled by Jamaican investigators who probed alleged extra-judicial killings by local police officers as a ‘horrible report.’

Chastanet said he has read the document which is commonly referred to as the IMPACS report.

” I read the report – the report makes some damning statements; it is a horrible report. It is an embarrasment,” the Prime Minister declared.

However he noted that the document does not mention the names of any witnesses.

Allen Chastanet spoke out against his predecessor, Doctor Kenny Anthony.

Then Prime Minister, Anthony had read excerpts of the IMPACS report on national television.

The excerpts that were read included claims that police officers kept  a death list, staged killings of suspected criminals  and planted weapons to justify their actions.

Chastanet expressed the view that the nature of the report made  Anthony’s statement even more  unreasonable and irresponsible.

“He is a lawyer, so you are telling me – it’s either he didn’t see it and therefore pronounced on the guilt of people without seeing the evidence, or as the former DPP said ‘hearsay and innuendo’; because that’s what it is without the actual evidence, or he saw it and he became the judge and jury by himself,” the Prime Minister stated.

Chastanet said Anthony should never have said what he said.

Asked how committed he was to ensuring a resolution to the  issues raised in the IMPACS report, the Prime Minister said he was “dead serious.”

In this regard Chastanet asserted that he will do all that is within his legal right to do without interfering in the case.

“That is what I am not going to do – so my role as the Executive of this country was to make sure that the DPP was appointed and to make sure that the DPP has the necessary resources to do the job,” he said.

The Prime Minister was a guest Wednesday night on Newsmaker Live, which was aired on DBS Television.

    Nonsense alone mate talking. Dr Anthony never accused anyone. All he did was read the report that Guy Mayers was daring him to read. The words Dr Anthony spoke are noit his own words, but the words contained in the report you dummy!

      Exactly! He read portions of it to inform the nation what we are facing as a nation. But look at Allen’s incoherent junk, oozing out from his jaw.

      They are the ones who caused all of this. And this is why the British Government has rejected this weasel “Guy Mayers'” appointed as St. Lucia’s ambassador to the UK. Even the US said NO to him and have written to Allen about this appointed and their concern.

      Not only Guy Mayers Kevin but also Chastanet himself. Did he he threaten to reveal what was in the report which prompted the then PM to caution him not to do so as doing so would prejudice the case? This man lies and he lies through his teeth. I am already sick and tired of this idiot. One time he cannot with the AG and then you hear she is his advisor. One must ask what the hell is going on?

    Instead for this Albinos devil fulfill his promise with his unhinged jaw about Impacs, he has gone by pointing fingers. A little boy filling the shoes of a man. No wonder Allen Chastanet is only good for the skies.
    I know you’re a child. Many close to you says you behave like an overgrown mutt.
    (Expression removed) and do what you promised the people…You Albinos Devil

    This guy was designed to lie even in the face of glaring truth. How was Kenny Anthony judge jury and executioner when he placed the report in the hands of the DPP to handle? Mr Chastenet please say nothing when truth eludes you.

    Chastanet is right, Kenny jus had to hand over the damn report to the DPP period. Kenny should know better, he should have know that he can’t read parts of the report. Now the report has been compromised in many ways.

    Dr Kenny did not read the report he gave us an insight of the report. Remember its a report. A lawyer would need evidence to take to a court of law. We all asked for the report to be read to us including the UWP. Dr Anthony gave us a glimpse of what St Lucia was into. We confirm now that the report is “bad” according to the words of our now Prime Minister. Now it is the blaming game. The UWP told us the people that he will fix it. So now PM fix it!
