St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): At Tuesday’s (Feb 7) Town Hall meeting in Newtown, Attorney General Vincent Byron responding to questions about investigations initiated by the government, made reference to those into the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation, and the electoral process of the last general election.

While pointing out that some of the findings in the SIDF probe have already been made public, Attorney General Byron said giving an update or providing results in the other investigations would be premature.

“I just want to say very clearly that this government has been having a number of ongoing investigations. We have engaged the international firm Ernst & Young to do an extensive investigation into the SIDF, we’ve had reports on that, we have carried on further investigations and they are also investigations that have been ongoing in relation to questions in the elections and the election process. As with all investigations one would be lapse to declare what those investigations are before they are concluded, but I would say that they are very active and that shortly we’ll start to hear something that is happening. At this point in time it would be irresponsible for us to declare where we are in those investigations" Byron said.

Play, play probe. Weak, woeful waste. Dissatisfied, disgusted and disinterested. Playing, with danger! The tiger has awaken, delinquents and infidels will not be tolerated. SKN: do not vote for those distressing our nation, or those who are to weak to implement tough laws to strip criminals from destroying life in St kitts and Nevis. Labour does not have the care nor wisdom to fight crime and Team Unity has done a lot, but what is needed is for us to fear God and obey his command at Psalm 10:15 and STOP criminals from polluting at our nation.

A waste of time and a waste of taxpayers monies.Every opposition party promises to jail former government officials for corruption after gaining the reigns of political power.Where is the Caribbean has that ever happened?They are all "The Same".In public they are coustic enemies,In private they are buddies and business associates.Vaga bonds and crookes,they "ALL"are.In St.Kitts,there will "NEVER"be one politician who will ever be held liable for corrupt or fraudulent practises.These so-called investigations are only used as political melee at elections time as a battle cry to rally support.INVESTI GATIONS MY FOOT......
