Sources within the United Workers Party (UWP) have said that consideration is being given to plans to criminally prosecute persons who are making attempts to discredit party leader – Allen Chastanet.
The sources told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today that the “AllenChastanetMustGo” moonlighting under the banner of UWP dissatisfied operatives is currently circulating a fraudulent document that it claims emanated from the American University in Washington, USA.
“The university has stated that the letter, which was mentioned by a known Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) operative on his Radio St. Lucia morning show, is fraudulent and persons engaging in such can be prosecuted,” a source told this publication.
Party sources have also confirmed that the stamped letter has been verified and is authentic.
UWP inside sources have also confirmed that the university has been notified of the fraudulent letter and steps are being taken by the university to protect its name in this matter.
“The party says that this is a grave matter and a criminal offence. One that can see the group prosecuted if the matter reaches the court,” sources said.
“They are so desperate that they will perform criminal acts just to discredit someone. This is not new because they have done similar acts before, faking a degree of a minister who did not have a doctorate, Grynberg, Rochamel, Helenites Affair and so many others where they have lied and broken the law.”
