Chastanet denies La Corbiniere’s claims
Following strong criticism from Senator Philip La Corbiniere, UWP leader Allen Chastanet has denied being part of a protesting crowd on Tuesday.
Chastanet had been accused of “unacceptable” behaviour and of being part of an unruly crowd which the UWP leader did nothing to calm down. However, observers say that the “crowd”, which amounted to fewer than ten, was not unruly, contrary to La Corbiniere’s claims, and was involved in some heckling outside the House of Assembly on Tuesday.
Regarding allegations that members of the crowd made threats to parliamentarians, the UWP leader said he did not hear any such threats.
