Minister for Home Affairs, Virginia Albert Poyotte, has come out in her own defence, following claims that she has been dismissive of sexual assault accusations against a member of the Royal St Lucia Police Force. Over the past month, the United Workers Party has leveled multiple allegations of inefficiency on members of the cabinet and has called for the dismissal of ministers over the issue.

In recent weeks, several members of the press were made privy to a letter that had been copied to Poyotte, pointing to alleged misconduct by a top-ranking member of the RSLPF. According to the Minister, when an email is copied, it serves to inform the recipient party of correspondence between two other individuals. Poyotte added that this means that she was not the one being addressed in the email and therefore wasn’t obligated to deal with its contents.

” You do not take any action on any letter that was copied to you for notification. Whoever the letter was addressed, to that’s the person that takes action, ” Poyotte said.

As of today, July 11th, no official investigation has been opened into the matter nor the accused police officials. The blame game surrounding the issue continues.
