Government thanks Jimmy Henry for service following resignation

The government has broken its silence on the resignation of former Senator Jimmy Henry.

Henry resigned from the Cabinet of Ministers and the Senate Wednesday, following days of media speculation that he would step down amid allegations of wrongdoing.

The announcement was made one day after Prime Minister Allen Chastanet proceeded on three weeks’ vacation.

In a video statement released today, Acting Prime Minister Ezechiel Joseph said that Prime Minister Chastanet and the Cabinet of Minister had accepted Henry’s resignation.

Joseph went on to thank Jimmy Henry for his “service to the people of St Lucia” saying that his work in Dennery-North must be commended.

“On behalf of the Prime Minister of St Lucia, Honourable Allen Chastanet and the cabinet of ministers, I wish to state that we have accepted the resignation of Mr. Jimmy Henry as a Senator and a Minister in the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning and Natural Resources and Cooperative,” Joseph stated.

Henry became embroiled in scandal following allegations on a local television talk show that he was stopped and questioned at the George Charles Airport about a large sum of money in his possession at the time.

In his carefully crafted resignation statement, Henry cited “personal reasons” that was taking attention away from his Ministerial duties for his decision to resign.

“I wish to thank Mr. Henry for his service to the people of St Lucia having served as a member of the senate and as the minister of government of the past year. Mr. Henry’s work in the community of Dennery-North must be commended and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” Joseph added.

Acting Commissioner of Police Milton Desir has said that Jimmy Henry is not currently being investigated by police.
