Desir denies Jimmy Henry under investigation

Acting Police Commissioner Milton Desir has denied reports that Minister in the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Co-operatives, Senator Jimmy Henry, is being investigated by the police.

“We have no such information that any minister or in fact the minister mentioned is under investigation,” Desir explained.

Desir said it was ‘worrying’ and ‘serious’ that persons are free to communicate over the media to give information that is not exactly correct to the entire world.

He noted that recently it was mentioned in the media that Jimmy Henry’s communications had been intercepted.

“I can tell you categorically – that is not a fact,” the Acting Police Commissioner asserted.

“I have been in office from January of this year and we have made no such application for interception,” Desir said.

He observed that the process for intercepting communications includes making an application to a Judge for a warrant.

“I am saying that from the time I am here I have never applied for  any warrant to intercept any communications, much less receiving a warrant to intercept,” the Acting Police Chief noted.

He said as far as he knows, there is no minister or ex-minister on any list  to have their communications intercepted.

“There is no investigation as far as I know being carried out against any minister of government,” Desir asserted.

He said that includes Jimmy Henry.

Desir also said  that no member of the opposition is under investigation.

    “He said as far as he knows, there is no minister or ex-minister on any list to have their communications intercepted.”

    What a laugh, 😂😂😂. I wonder whether that was said with a straight face 😂😂😂.

    Ok he did say “as far as he knows… ” 😂😂😂.

    Illegal wire tapping is rampant here. Anyone saw the programme featuring a story about a used car importer who explained that even his email was hacked by the Customs sharks? That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

    The minister may not be under surveillance but when you look the other way around what about the people he’s allegedly having the conversations with , are their phones not the ones being bugged by law enforcement, so I believe that’s the question that has to be answered to get to the bottom of this assertion.

      Hmmm, were you standing before a mirror while that comment was composed? I daresay it betrays a certain eloquence in the art of ignorance.

      According to the local bavardage, the (alleged) protagonists in this drama are,
      a current government minister, law enforcement officials and a former cabinet member of the current administration.

      Based on the foregoing, I thus impatiently await a synopsis of the inventive feat of deductive reasoning which led to your conclusions regarding supporters of a particular political party.

      It seems like there can be no topical online discussion in Saint Lucia without the inevitable infestation from the single colour cloaked, objectivity challenged lifeforms known as the political party hack.

    It seems by the comments Lucians hv all the info. Well if all u know for a fact that the guy is under investigation. Gv us the details of the investigation and stop the allegations against the acting commissioner. Also if u all know about telephone interceptions gv us the details. Ppl seem to be using talk show hosts and facebook as gospel truth. SMH. Good thing I refuse to pay electricity for those hosts to be on my tv. Every single day or Every single show they hv a new item about a minister. Gv the guys a break to run the country. the ppl of St. Lucia elected them to do so. respect the ppl choice n shut up talk show hosts. So we wanna be run by the same party n the same individuals all our life. My thing is gv a party 2 terms then vote them out to next one. And continue the cycle.

    It is possible that Henry is being investigated by Customs and not the Police which could explain why Desir is suffering from amnesia on this investigation.
