Chaia apologizes for defamation, while Lovell warns other ALP operatives that he will go ‘all the way’ on any future lies

Donna-Chaia

REAL NEWS- Harold Lovell says he feels vindicated by the outcome of a legal matter in which he sued Antigua Labour Party (ALP) mouthpiece Donna Chaia.

In March of this year, Chaia spewed a number of untruths claiming Lovell was involved in the Odebrecht bribery scandal, which were broadcast on the radio station affiliated with Prime Minister Gaston Browne.

Accordingly, Lovell, the Political Leader of the United Progressive Party and an attorney by profession, sued her for defamation of character.

In the course of mediation, Chaia opted to settle the matter by offering Lovell a public apology – via the same medium – for what she admits were her “own personal opinions,” adding “I do not have any information which ties you to the scandal.”

Earlier, when Lovell signaled his intention to pursue legal recourse, Prime Minister Browne promised to pay Chaia’s fees.

Now, in addition to issuing the apology, she has been ordered to pay costs to Lovell’s attorney, Charlesworth Tabor.

No matter how those in the Labour Party camp try to downplay Chaia’s apology, it is an admission of being wrong, Lovell states.

Meanwhile, he is warning other ALP operatives to stop spreading lies about him, because on the next occasion he will go all the way with the matter.

Supporters of Lovell tell REAL News they find Chaia’s excuse “lame” and “insincere” and that her manner of delivery was “quite flippant.”

“She meant what she said,” one angry man declares, adding that he is “too sorry the matter did not go to trial, so that she would have to pay for her mouth.”

      You and all the apologists for the ABLP: 10 MAN, FROM THE SIDE//////, WASH/BASIN ETC WILL PAY FOR ALL THE LIES YOU SPREAD ON UPP.
      ABLP ATTRACT ALL LIARS AND MIS-REPRESENTERS.
      Y’ALL JUST A BUNCH OF USEFUL IDIOTS AND LIE, LIE, LIE AND DECEIVE ALL ANTIGUANS TO STAY IN POWER IN ORDER TO ENRICH YOURSELVES AND YOUR MINIONS LIKE YOU.

  3. Justice prevails at last against ABLP’S gutter politics.

    They have been using and getting away with these despicable tactics; maybe now we can go back to politics and policies that really concern us in Antigua.

    However, will Gaston Browne himself put a stop to this nonsense now that the ABLP have been found guilty as charged?

    His confrontational character suggests he will not!

    • Both parties practice dutty nasty gutter politics so nah come with that bs both parties red and blue needs to do Antigua and Barbuda a favor and go jump over Devils Bridge and take the followers like you Brixtonian and Jackass From the Sidelines with them all you sick margar dwarg tommack 🤮🤮🤮

      • Freedom of speech seems to bother you much @ Kettle. Why not show some respect for opposing views?

        If everybody thought and acted the same, the world would be one hell of a boring place.

        Do try to educate yourself and learn to suck up the differing viewpoints of others and then you won’t resort to reacting like a damn fool!

        By the way are you an ABLP generational supporter?

        Just asking for a friend boss …

        • This has nothing to do with freedom of speech this is the fact the both main political parties in Antigua and Barbuda practice dutty nasty gutter politics. And for the fact you completely ignored my point and come up with this load of crap shows you are nothing but a blinded one sided political sheep. And honestly it makes you a damn hypocrite. As i said both parties needs to do us a favor and go jump over Devils Bridge and take the sheeps like you and From the Sidelines with them

        • And no I am not an ALP supporter never have and never will be but me anna one hypocrite like you who seems to willing give the other side a pass for doing the same bs just because ypu don’t support ALP anymore @ Brixtonian

          • Well, at least we agree to disagree @ Kettle, like you I have no problem with your views whatsoever.

            I don’t wish you to jump off Devil’s Bridge, however do enjoy the rest of your day …

      • @ Kettle calling the pot black

        OK ‘purist’ DNA…….DID you or the members of your party just came out of your mother’s womb? hypocrite

  4. It was unbelievable to hear the chief Flipflopper, Senator Oneal, JUDAS ISCARIOT, interrupting and telling the woman as she read her apology, that he would not have apologize.
    Imagine that puppy was the same individual on the Senate Floor on his knees crawling and begging forgiveness for the horrific things he said that he would do to Lester Bird.
    This puppy guy is the biggest traitor.
    All for the sake of money.
    Four (4) paychecks.
    Are you getting any?

    • Of all the turn coats Oneal is the worst!!!!!! Lanny Bozo!!!!! The worst kind of human!!!! Dangerous… Should never be trusted with anything!!! NOTTEN!!!

  5. @ 3 TURN COATS

    well GB said he would pay all their legal fees so they can continue to malign Harold’s name.

    DEM JUST NAR HAB NO SHAME: THE 3 BLIND MICE. NO PRINCIPLE- selling their soul for a few pieces of silver. WOW!!!

  6. Don’t know what you guys are celebrating about. Donna is not running on any slate of the ABLP. And second is her personal decision to settle out of court with an apology if that is what Harold wants. Remember Harold also promised to sue Gaston Browne. Well, we are still waiting. He challenged Gaston to say something he said in Parliament outside of Parliament and Gaston did so and challenged him to bring the suit. Donna on the other hand thought it was a distraction on politics and therefore decided not to let this linger. I do not agree with her, but that is her choice. She said it was even against her lawyer’s advice. But the fact remains of what she said. Lovell was in Miami meeting with the Odebrecht people. So, who wants to interpret that as Harold been involved in the scandal too bad. If I were Donna, I would take Lovell to court to have my name on the radio saying she left his hotel room at 3:00am making some insinuations that defame her character. Lovell was just like a little boy that day in the snake pit. And that is a man who he wants us to look up to.

    • @ From The Sideline
      Donna is not running on the ABLP slate but she might as well, because she along with the other two mice are paid to tarnish ALL THE UPP CANDIDATES, SO ITS ALL A PACKAGE DEAL.
      ALL YOU MINIONS ATTACK MAGIG ABOUT RAPE THOUGH HE IS NOT ON UPP SLATE ,BUT YOU CANT TAKE A GRILLING WHEN ITS METED OUT TO YOU.
      WHAT A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES (CRITTERS).
      I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT GASTON DOES WITH THE THREE OF DEM IF HE LOSES POWER, BECAUSE FOR HOW MUCH HE LOVE MONEY THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE A JOB WITH HIM AFTER 2023

  8. Colin O’Neal also now known as Colin Browne.He was in the Parliament of Antigua and Barbuda on his knees begging the Lester Bird/ALP supporters for forgiveness. He is the one who wanted Lester,Asot and others arrested over a holiday weekend.That meant they would stay an extra day in the lockup because of the Holiday.He was going to see to it that Lester Bird was not Knighted.Then he ended up kissing the rings of those he wished to lockup.He was appointed to the Labor Party Senate of Gaston Browne.Now he is worse than the long life Labor Party supporters. FLIP FLOP,FLIP FLOP,Monica Lewinsky wearing knee pads.
