(SNO) – Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Senator Ubaldus Raymond, has said the two young women in the blackmail case have apologised to him and the matter is now closed.

Raymond made the disclosure on Monday morning, Oct. 8 when reporters questioned him about the case outside the High Court.

He said the case has “come to a conclusion” and he has accepted the “sincere” apologies of both women.

“They were very repentant in their apologies,” he said. “I do accept their apologies and I believe that forgiveness is always stronger than hate and revenge, and I have forgiven these two young ladies for their criminal act against myself and my family and of course the rest of the country, I would say.”

In 2017, the young women, Curshaby Alexander and Kershel Louis, who were both 18 at the time, were arrested on charges of blackmail (SEE STORY) in connection with the leaking of nude photos.

Despite calls for his resignation, Raymond stood his ground.

  2. I am disappointed in both the Minister and the state. Why do the girls owe him an apology? He owes an apology to every young girl and the country at large. Their apology does not negate the fact that he was having sexual relationships with young girls and paying them at that. Further, some of the activity was allegedly occurring from the Government's office. Shame on you I say Ubaldus and your Julietta for condoning this behavior just to save face and your salary. You all didn't care if the young girls were sent to jail for the rest of their lives. Blackmail, my a--.

    I am pissed at the courts for entertaining this farce.

    • Well said the Salop ! He buy off the girls and then ask them to make a public apology so he could come out smelling like a rose. Politicians don't take jail in this country NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO I have never seen it or heard of it in all 54 yrs. since I have been a St Lucian others older than myself would testify to the same They BEAT THEIR WIVES OR JABALS THEY MISUSE PUBLIC FUNDS STEAL PUBLIC FUNDS THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN ANY PALIMENTARY INQURY ON ANYONE NOTHING !!! Politicians in this country don't go to jail. A PICTURE TELLS A THOUSAND WORDS HOW THEH HELL THEY CAME ABOUT.
