AN OPEN LETTER TO:
Mr. Michael Joseph, President of the Antigua & Barbuda Pharmacy Council
Mr. Raju Boddu, Comptroller of Customs
Commissioner Atlee Rodney, Commissioner of the Royal Antigua Police Force
Dear Honorable Sirs:
We write to you as concerned citizens regarding troubling events that recently took place in Antigua and Barbuda. These events have not been adequately addressed by the respective investigative authorities. We respectfully request a public response to this inquiry.
As you are no doubt aware, on Saturday, 25th September, 2021, during an interview on Pointe FM 99.1, the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Mr. Gaston Browne openly admitted to participating in actions that, if true, violates the laws of Antigua and Barbuda and the United States of America.
Mr. Browne publicly acknowledged he and other citizens were inoculated with the Moderna Vaccine, which at the time was under an export embargo by the United States government. He evidenced this by displaying a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, which upon information and belief, is only issued in the United States. Mr. Browne further went on to say that he could not divulge the name of the medical practitioner who brought in and administered the vaccines at the time, stating “… I could not have done it publicly, the man would have gotten in trouble.”
Based on public knowledge, the vaccine referred to by Mr. Browne was not at that time approved by the Pharmacy Council for use in Antigua and Barbuda. This public admission is sufficient to warrant an investigation as to whether the laws governing the importation of that drug/medicine, including the Customs (Control and Management)(Amendment of Third Schedule) Order, 2021 were violated, and whether Mr. Browne aided and abetted a foreign medical practitioner in violating the licensing provisions under the Medical Practitioners Act.
Each of you have a fiduciary duty and a legal obligation to investigate serious allegations, irrespective of the actor(s) involved; but have been worryingly silent. Citizens and residents of Antigua and Barbuda have a right to know whether the laws of this country have been violated.
The demand is clearly before you, and the people of this country are waiting for an answer.We call on you to immediately notify the public as to whether an investigation has been initiated by your respective office, and if so, what is its current status.
