Director of Public Prosecutions, Victoria Charles-Clarke has been told to resign or retire if she is unable to do what’s “just and right” in the interest of Saint Lucia.
That call came from Minister for Physical Development, Housing and Urban Renewal Stanley Felix when he addressed a Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) rally at the Castries Market Tuesday evening.
Felix was likely responding to criticisms that the SLP Administration has failed to bring to the courts all of the major allegations of corruption against members of the previous United Workers Party (UWP) government.
The minister said the reports were submitted to the DPP for action.
“We looked into the allegations and that is why we have the report indicating all of the funds that were misappropriated during the reign of the last government. It is now for the DPP to act,” Felix stated.
He added: I will say it again tonight. I would issue a cry on behalf of the people of Saint Lucia. I Stanley Felix, minister in the SLP government, resident of Castries Central, citizen of this country, I ask you Madame DPP to issue a statement on the report that is before you. We want it, the people want it. It is only fair that you do what is just and right in the interest of this country. If you can’t do that, I suggest you resign, retire or just quit.”
