PLP Astounded By AG’s Decision

The Chairman of the Progressive Liberal  Party Senator Fred Mitchell  says  the party is simply astounded that the Government has announced through its Attorney General  that it has decided to refer the matter of the information alleged on a social media voice note to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

 The Party was responding to an article in yesterday’s Tribune. 

What a complete and utter waste of police and prosecution time.

Not to mention the fact that the Director of Public Prosecutions is supposed to be an independent creature.  We look forward then to the specific directions being gazetted according to the law that the Free National Movement has now passed and brought into force,” said the Senator in a press statement.

The statement said, “the problem for us is that on what we see, no offence is disclosed.  This is a simple social media, political war of “you say and I say”.
That is now to be elevated to the use of the state’s apparatus to investigate some phantom alleged criminal behaviour. 

We think the real story here is the prosecutions that were unleashed on PLP MPs; this is now victor’s justice again.  

This reference to the DPP is designed to intimidate PLP partisans in their social media warfare against FNM trolls who continue to defame the PLP and its leaders.  It is shameful and nakedly political.  Nothing more; nothing less.

If however, the FNM persists in this folly, the PLP has a litany of complaints against FNM trolls on line and  Save The Bays, all engaged in smear campaigns against the PLP.  We recall that in the case of Save The Bays, the FNM shut down the investigation into their conduct and funding. We are prepared to so inform the Director of Public Prosecutions as well about our suspicions so that there is balance in his investigations,” said Mr. Mitchell.
