Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
September 15, 2010 (CUOPM)
The Press Secretary to the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Mr. Erasmus Williams Sr. has denied allegations made by the Political Leader of the opposition People’s Action Movement (PAM), Mr. Lindsay Grant on WINNFM that he (Williams) was privy to the ruling of the Appeal Court in the Contempt of Court matter handed down on Monday.
“I want to unequivocally and in the strongest terms refute the allegation that I had advance information and knowledge of how the Appeal Court Judges was going to in the matter which was before the Appeal Court on Monday. Likewise I emphatically refute the allegation also from Mr. Lindsay Grant of the People’s Action Movement (PAM) that how the Court was going to rule was posted on the Internet by me, the Press Secretary to the Prime Minister,” said Press Secretary Erasmus Williams.
Mr. Williams further challenged Mr. Lindsay Grant to produce the evidence of the information that was allegedly posted by him on the Internet.
“Mr. Grant should take his loss in the Appeal Court like a man and not draw the Judges of the Appeal Court, the Staff of the Court of Appeal or the Staff of the High Court in his political web,” said Williams to WINNFM on Tuesday.
Wednesday morning Mr. Williams reiterated his position on “Journeys” on Sugar City Rock making the observation that the allegation made by Mr. Grant was not used in WINNFM’s Evening Newscast with his response.
