Run-up to Elections 2020: About 20 Properties Defaced In Sandy Point

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The defacing of private homes and other property and allegations that an opposition motorcade was stopped by security forces under COVID 19 regulations are making the rounds on social media and attracting heated debate.

Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the People’s Action Movement Shawn Richards Leader is confirming that a number of buildings have been defaced in his constituency.

Mr. Richards said about twenty homes in the area were affected. Police investigations into the incident were ongoing at news time Sunday (May 24).

On Thursday, (May 21) Police Commissioner Hilroy Brandy warns political parties that acting on the advice of public health authorities, motorcades, processions, and public meetings are not allowed at this time.

The Commissioner said permission would not be given to any individual, group or political party to have such events.

“It is important for the public to know that I have not granted permission to any political party or any group to have a motorcade or public procession. Notwithstanding this, on several occasions, I have had to send Officers to stop several efforts to have motorcades. In some instances, the activity was already underway and we have had to bring them to a halt. This is unacceptable. It is important for members of the public to know what is allowed and what is not allowed at this time so that they can make informed decisions,” said Commissioner Brandy.
