Albert Fregis called to the bar

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.

    Why don’t you say an “unsuccessful Saint Lucia labor party candidate in Dennery South “instead of just “a Saint Lucia Labour Party candidate for Dennery South…”? Readers must be given the whole truth whereas you people like to one-sided reporting.

      @SERIOUS…is it that YOU have such a deficiency in english grammer and the comprehension thereof, that you didn’t get what he was saying? Was he not a candidate? He did not say he was parliamentary representative for the constituency. So please tell us where the truth is lacking….

      How about u sit down and get a book to read so you can have a better understanding of the English language…wasn’t he a candidate?… A candidate in his situation is someone nominated for elections.. A parliamentary rep is one who won the seat deck deck…sit (Words deleted) down and watch him succeed

    Another lawyer/ politician. SMH. They will do nothing to change the law so the country can go forward. So how is it that you are serving the country.

    Rise. After disappointments keep pressing on. Many people who get involved in politics and are unsuccessful sit and wait for the next hand out. You invested and made something of yourself so you can move forward. Good job and congratulations.

    Some Saint Lucians are still do dumb. You do, they criticize, you don’t do, they criticize. The man has hopes to be in politics but if he doesn’t succeed, he has a job to fall back on. Some of our politicians cannot survive out of politics.

    Firstly, I must congratulate the young man for realising his ambitions. Secondly, I want all of you who seem to be against this accomplishment to hold your points until Jadia Jn. Pierre graduates as a lawyer in the near future. Let’s see what your positions will be then. Mine, as usual, will be to also congratulate her for her talent and achievement. So for now, I want to big up Mr. Fregis, and to tell him that Dennery is proud of him.
