Former police Superintendent, Albert Fregis, was called to the bar on Friday asserting that the event marked the end of a very long and arduous journey.
“It is something I have always wanted to do but there were always obstacles in my way,” Fregis said, adding that the destination was a bit more satisfying because of the difficult journey.
The former police officer said he did not expect his new endeavour to be challenging because it will involve dealing with the law.
He explained that he has always had a love for the law.
“I suppose I have just taken it to a different level,” Fregis declared.
The former Minister Counsellor at the High Commission for Saint Lucia in London said that his entire life has been about service to country.
“I am a patriot through and through and love my country,” Fregis said, explaining that he sees being called to the bar as another step in serving his country.
Fregis, who was also a Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidate for Dennery South declared that he loves politics and public life.
“You won’t be seeing me again in the role of candidate, but certainly don’t think that I’ve bowed out of politics,” he said.
