Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has refuted a ‘fake news’ article which has been circulating on social media regarding his health.
“I wish to assure Saint Lucians that this article is completely fabricated and I am in good health and at no time collapsed during my attendance at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA),” Chastanet said in a statement.
He disclosed that following his address to the UNGA-72 on Friday afternoon, he attended several meetings at the UN and subsequently left for Canada where he will be attending meetings with the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), to address the issue of correspondence banking and derisking.
The Prime Minister stated that he will also be meeting with investors.
“I encourage Saint Lucians to please use reputable news sources for information and be aware and vigilant in not sharing news hoaxes or false information from prank websites,” Chastanet said.
