Sarah speaks on the Ubaldus Raymond scandal

Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, the Minister with responsibility for External Affairs, has told reporters that Doctor Ubaldus Raymond and the cabinet of ministers know exactly how she feels about the social media scandal involving Raymond.

Asked about the issue, the MP for Castries Central said:

“I would like to say a very simple thing on this and I hope you will respect or accept what I say. The minister and the cabinet of ministers know exactly how I feel about this issue and I am going to leave it at that.

Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, has been at the centre of a firestorm over nude photos, allegedly of the minister and a WhatsApp conversation purporting to be between the minister and a teenage female that have been making the rounds on social media.

In a dramatic twist to the story, an eighteen year old student of Sir Arthur Lewis Community College was arrested and charged with blackmailing Raymond, who issued a statement declaring among other things, that he will not be bullied.
