The Saint Lucia Labour Party denounces the latest attempt by the UWP to sully the reputation of the former Minister of Youth and Sports and the Parliamentary Representative for Dennery North, Hon Shawn Edward and some former board members of the National Lotteries Authority.
The SLP maintains that Hon Shawn Edward did NOT in any way jeopardise the integrity and accountability of the NLA but instead enhanced and developed the Youth and Sports fraternity in Saint Lucia.
The SLP notes that it was the ‘Minister’s Account’ that supported Ms Julien Alfred in advancing to winning a gold medal at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games. Further, several other sports persons benefitted from similar type assistance.
The Saint Lucia Labour Party instead believes that the Prime Minister should explain to the people of Saint Lucia the sudden retreat, under questionable circumstances of Jimmy Henry from the Cabinet of Ministers.
