More Questions Than Answers!
The Editor, Those of us who love Saint Lucia and love still more the freedoms its constitution affords us, must be thankful for persons such as you who are not afraid to use the media to raise important questions of governance and law and order. Citizen must be encouraged to ask questions and to demand truthful and timely answers. For example, why is a businessman from Lebanon this island’s Ambassador to UNESCO? Given the volatility of the Middle East is this the best place to source a representative for Saint Lucia at UNECSO?
There is another question. Do the personal Secretary and family of Saint Lucia’s UNESCO representative carry diplomatic passports? Is any Saint Lucia national concerned about the reason this particular Ambassador still represents the island at UNESCO? Are you concerned Rick about how terrorists in the Middle East purchase arms for use in their nefarious Islamists causes?
By the way, when last did the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia hold a press conference? Why does one who came to office promising transparency and openness in Government now avoids the independent press as if it was a plague? Will we ever know the truth about Grynberg, IMPACS and ALBA etc?
There are so many serious issues to be resolved; it’s no longer funny. We can’t simply relegate this situation to ‘the evil of party politics.’ Now that the entire island is under a cloud of suspicion, who will flush out answers to questions citizens are asking? I suggest that you persevere with your questioning because no one else has the knowledge, experience or the gonads, to do what you do.
