The Saint Lucia Police Welfare Association (PWA) has responded to allegations in which police officers are being accused of attempting to “embarrass” Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony.

President of the association Camron Laure told a media conference today that these allegations should not go uninvestigated, despite there is no proof that the statement is true.

Laure said that the allegation is in reference with what the prime minister described as a “plot”, where it is believed that some police officers attempted to use cheques from the AIMU investigations to embarrass him.

“My information is that the investigators did not find any cheques during the course of the investigations,” he said.

Contrary to statements made that the police should have informed the Commissioner of Police (COP) before conducting a search on the Ministry of Commerce, Laura said that should never be the case.

He said it is not custom for an investigator to inform the COP of warrants to be executed during an investigation.

Laure said a police officer, during the course of an investigation, should pursue all information without fear or favour, noting that a warrant is a tool used to aid in the investigations by the police.

“The investigator must first satisfy the magistrate that there is maybe evidence to aid in his investigations before a warrant is issued. It gives that investigator the authority to search in case there is resistance,” he added.

The prime minister had told the media: “I am aware that a very small group of police officers has planned to use the so-called Lambird’s Affair and more recently, the AIMU investigations, to  try to embarrass me personally and three other Ministers in my Cabinet. The Police Force is itself not involved in this.”

He had disclosed that a senior officer at the centre of the allegations is reported to have openly boasted of his intentions to his colleagues and civilians alike, to bring down Kenny Anthony and the Labour government.

Nevertheless, Laure asserted that no police officer should try to influence the outcome of any general elections through his/her office and reiterated that that the matter should be pursued.

  3. It is becoming all too common in Saint Lucian politics for people to be making these allegations about their opponents. However, one common thread in all the allegations going back from prior to the 2011 elections is that the people making these allegations are the SLP and its operatives.

    The allegations are meant to instill fear in the minds of the Saint Lucian voters and to unfairly paint the UWP and its members as violent, unpatriotic, desperate for power, and to show them as people who will go to the extremes to regain power.

    The SLP and its henchmen know that they can get away with this shit because there is hardly any way of verifing the truth of these allegations. First it was a hit was ordered on Claudius, then a hit was ordered on LaCorbinerre, and now that damning one against the top level of the police force.

    This is very reckless to paint the police as renegades and coup plotters when there isn't a shred of evidence to back it up. But in the minds of the voting public the impression has already been made.

    So I support the the gentleman, Mr. Laure, in his call to get an INDEPENDENT body to fully investigate these allegations made by people in high offices in our government that are malicious and destructive in nature all in an effort to make political gains.

    It is only then will Saint Lucians know the level of dangerously deceptive practices tha this SLP government will engage in to retain power in this country.

  4. Well well, when you Kenny embarras the police force whom most of us St.Lucians depend upon to defend us, "those of us who are not criminals," you also disrespect the citizen's of the country. Are you hiding something that the police know and you think they will use against you. Why would you think that they are out to get you? Don't try to blame anyone for all the mischief you have done to the poor St.Lucians. Our Better days will be without you. You are trying to blame someone, just blame Kenny Anthony, you.
