Raymond focused on his government role

Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, attempting to evade questions about the social media scandal involving the leakage of his alleged nude photos, has told reporters that he has a role to play in the government.

“I am focussed on that at this point in time,” Raymond said in response a question about whether he should stay in the background.

In regard to whether he should resign, the minister recalled that Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has already made a statement on the matter, indicating that there is a court case and depending on the outcome, a decision will be made on the way forward.

An eighteen year old female student of Sir Arthur Lewis Community College was charged with blackmail in connection with the nude photos scandal and was granted bail in the sum of $10,000.

Protesters gathered outside parliament today as the senate prepared to meet to demand that Raymond resign over the scandal, asserting that as leader of government business in the house he was a bad example.

“He is a bad example as a Christian and as a married man,” a female protester, Cornelia Jacob, told reporters, adding that Raymond needs to do the honourable thing and get out of government.

“He needs to resign, that needs no court case – it needs nothing,” Jacob said.

Yannette James, another protester, said she was there because no one is speaking up on behalf of women.

According to her, Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, who is supposed to be honourable, has shown that he has no respect for young women.

    Dr. Raymond did a most dishonorable act and should be banished from the walls of government. It’s unconscionable to have such a notorious character as part of any government. What message are we sending to our children? Can any parent feel comfortable with their teenaged daughter working in the same office as Dr. Raymond? The upcoming court case is not related to whether or not the Minister exposed himself. For an elderly man to proposition a young lady who is barely legal is not only DISGUSTING but intolerable.

      Barely legal where?
      She was above the age of sixteen. She was legal and knew what she was getting herself involved in. So just stop with the non sense. He was in business with the young girl and the business got sour so he got intervention so that he wouldn’t be drained of his Capital. Bomb is Undercover business.

    Stop the hypocrisy. What happen to forgiveness in a Christian nation, Many of you males calling for himto resign if night should turn to day many of you will die of shame
    I am not condoning the act nor his haughtiness. He should be humble and publicly repent and ask for forgiveness.
    What good would it fo for him to resign. Let the man contribute what he has to this country.
    Anyone can fall into sin. What if it was you. How would you like to be treated.

      Stop supporting immorality in high places. It’s sitting ducks like you who actively support filth in all its forms. You think the God of Abraham will ever bless our land with the stumbling blocks like Ubaldus Raymond and others leading the people?
      You can forget it!

      One can forgive but there are consequences for one’s actions especially immoral, disgraceful and reprehensible actions like what Minister Ubaldus is accused of. If this goes unpunished, it will set the wrong precedent. Let’s suppose that a male student sends a female student nude photos of himself on WhatsApp, should he be punished? Children should aspire to become Ministers of Government. Which student would want to emulate Dr. Raymond with his unbecoming behavior?

    those protestors made no sense, the young lady was smart enough to blackmail, why could she not go to the police if she believe that a wrongful act was done,i am for one do not think that Raymond should resign.

    … and what about the 18 year old blackmailer? She is the one committed a CRIME!! And she was caught, arrested and charged. What about her? As for the “alleged” nude photos of the minister; Quite a few professional photographers have pointed out the fallacy of these photos. Oh how easily some people fall prey to “bs”!! Anyway, the courts will tell – and I sincerely hope the protesters will have egg on their faces.

    And if the gentleman resigns, will the demonstrators embrace him as a fellow St Lucian, or will they continue to pour scorn on him whenever they see him in public? Incidentally, while these Christian demonstrators are up in arms against Ubaldus, some of them are busy trying to get visas to enter the USA, where Trump is President, AFTER he publicly admitted to grabbing women by their pussies. He boasted that this can be done. Once you have power. The local moralists like Trump for what he said , but they hate Ubaldus for what someone else did. What logic is this? Poor jab St. Lucians. We are taking note of who the demonstrators are, and we will follow their and their children’s development between now and the year 2020. Remember, the same stick that beat the black dog will beat the white dog ( say this is Kweyol).

    both Cornelia Jacob and Yannette James are supporters of the labour party such hypocrisy where were they when the members of their party sat in office with alleged sex scandals over their heads
    did they protest when the woman was killed at her home
    did they protest when the couple was killed at their homes
    have they protested against the wrongs that take place in society
    have they protested over the student and teacher involvement at one of our secondary schools
    they are now big followers of R
    go see their activity on slaps and the language they use
    selective morality
    this is called vindictiveness trying to destroy the man
    who without sin cast the first stone
    they want to get back at the man because he left their party thats all its about
    Remember, the same stick that beat the black dog will beat the white dog
