St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The case brought against the parliamentary representative for Constituency #8, Mr. Eugene Hamilton for bribery and treating, in the run-up to the June 5, 2020, general elections, has been discontinued by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mr. Valston Graham.
The St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party candidate for Constituency #8 Dr. Terrance Drew filed the private criminal charges in November 2020 in the High Court.
Dr. Drew claimed to have substantive evidence to support his allegations.
On Monday, February 22, the DPP informed the court that he would examine the evidence against Mr. Hamilton to determine if the case should proceed.
Monday (April 26), the DPP informed the court that the matter was being discontinued as it lacked sufficient evidence.
