  • 1. Upstairs AF Valmont, P.O. Box RB 2497, Rodney Bay, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia Tel/Fax: (758) 572-4949 Contact: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE UWP NOT DISTURBED BY LABOUR’S LATEST ATTEMPT TO INTIMIDATE CASTRIES, Saint Lucia – Tuesday, December 17, 2013 – Since the democratic election of the new executive of the United Workers Party at its annual convention held on 28th, July, 2013, we have embarked on a mission of highlighting the failings and ineptitude of the Labour administration. Instead of trying to find solutions to alleviate the problems facing the country, the Labour government has embarked on a weekly attack of vilification against any and every statement made by the new executive of the U.W.P. The SLP government, has by its actions, proven that they will stop at nothing to intimidate, embarrass and discredit anyone who challenges their ability to govern this country. Past examples include, Ras Ipa, Lorne Theophilus, Ausbert d’ Auvergne, Vaughn Lewis, Mary Francis, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun and more recently, Timothy Poleon to name a few. In their latest demonstration of this arrogant behavior, the Labour administration, has been using the outcome of a questionable audit as a tool for political mischief. After all of the allegations of a criminal offence, why then has the Labour Administration, through the Attorney General’s Chambers, filed a civil case and not a criminal case against Mr. Chastanet? The claim, dated the 10th December, 2013, accuses Mr. Chastanet of acting in a manner that amounts to “breach of his fiduciary duties as a Minister of government, in bad faith and/or constitutes misfeasance in public office.” This is very reminiscent of the failed tactics used against Sir John Compton following the 1997 general elections. It is evident by these actions that the Labour Party Administration is intending to diminish the ability of Mr. Chastanet and the main Opposition to challenge the Government on critical issues pertaining to the plight of the citizens.
  • 2. Allen Chastanet and the U.W.P. will not be intimidated by the government’s scare tactics, and will relentlessly pursue and point out the failures of this government on behalf of the people of Saint Lucia. -END-
