The prolonged twelve-year saga surrounding the US visa of Housing Minister Richard Frederick may has taken a surprising new twist. Recently, Frederick traveled to the United States for what appears to be personal reasons, leading observers to speculate that his travel documents have been reinstated.The debate over Frederick’s visa has been a long-standing political issue.

After resigning from then-Prime Minister Stephenson King’s cabinet in 2011, Frederick revealed that his entry to the US had been revoked for unknown reasons. Since then, rumors have circulated in political circles suggesting that the Member of Parliament for Castries Central had faced consequences for alleged illegal activities. Frederick has consistently denied these allegations.

In response to public interest in his visa status, Frederick expressed a sense of liberation from his detractors and noted that the reinstatement proves that the accusations against him were untrue.

“When you see you have persons, the naysayers, spreading rumors, propaganda and misinformation, they must under that people are listening” he said. “All of these were lies” he added. Questions regarding the rationale behind the initial revocation and Frederick’s visa reinstatement still remain.
