Par­lia­ment on Tues­day is­sued a state­ment fol­low­ing re­ports Satur­day that for­mer House Speaker Matthew Roberts was hos­pi­tal­ized. “The Par­lia­ment of Saint Lu­cia has, with deep re­gret, learnt of the hos­pi­tal­iza­tion of for­mer Speaker of the House of Assem­bly, Mr. Matthew Roberts. Whilst the de­tails sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent are not yet known, we wish Mr. Roberts a speedy and full re­cov­ery,” the state­ment said.

Re­ports are that the for­mer Speaker of the House of Assem­bly was hos­pi­tal­ized after he was found along a road­side in Bexon early Satur­day morn­ing with a stab wound.

Po­lice ear­lier this week con­firmed that they are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port that Roberts stopped his ve­hi­cle to of­fer some­one a ride. The po­lice say he was later found in a pool of blood and it is be­lieved that he was also robbed and pushed out of his ve­hi­cle, which was later found aban­doned in the Cul De Sac area.
