Future of SLNT Director to be decided in June

Future of SLNT Director to be decided in June

A decision on the future of St Lucia National Trust Director Bishnu Tulsie could be revealed by the end of June.

That’s when the SLNT Council is set to meet for its monthly meeting.

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has called for Mr.Tulsie to be removed from the post over his apparent opposition to the government’s main economic programs including the proposed dolphin park at Pigeon Island and the US$2.6 billion Desert Star Holdings (DSH) project in Vieux Fort.

The Trust initially stated that it was ‘100 percent’ behind Mr Tulsie.

However Mr. Tulsie said a final decision on his future with the organization will be taken in collaboration with the Council of the St Lucia National Trust when it meets sometime in the middle of June.

“That is still under active consideration but I’ve not taken a final decision,” Tulsie said.

The Allen Chastanet administration has cut the annual $700,000 subvention to the SLNT, a move which the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has said was in retaliation for the organisation’s opposition to the Dolphin Park and the controversial $US 2.6 billion DSH project.

    Why do you still slant this issue? The Prime Minister said in his discussion with the chairperson of the board it was revealed that Tulsie’s contract will naturally end in a short while. There is no need to state the Prime Minister is requesting his removal. Why project the man as indispensable? Why reinforce division and cause a friction over a retiree who has another life to live?
