‘We Will Find Out Shortly What the DPP Will Do’ — PM Gonsalves


(iWitness News) St. Vincent and the Grenadines will “shortly” know Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Sejilla McDowall’s decision in the case in which a businessman has alleged that government senator Ashelle Morgan was among three people who came to his house when he was shot two months ago.

“I will be fair to everybody, including Ashelle Morgan. There are some people who feel, ‘Where this girl come from all of a sudden that she could be senator?’ Some people don’t like poor people children to advance,” Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves told a virtual press conference Tuesday.

“Look, I have a mature and fair approach to this thing. I simply say, we will find out shortly what the DPP will do,” said the prime minister, who is also minister of legal affairs.

“And if she charges for whatever offences, there will be a trial. If she doesn’t charge, there will be no trial. And I can’t attempt in any way to influence this. If we want to build our democratic institutions and our institution of justice, we must do it properly,” Gonsalves said.
