Lovell denies media reports from St. Kitts that Mehul Choksi has promised to fund UPP’s campaign

52

PRESS RELEASE:

“It’s a malicious lie,” says Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), in response to a claim out of St. Kitts & Nevis about the source of its campaign funding.

 

A March 29 article in the SKN News reports that Lovell and Indian businessman Mehul Choksi held a meeting in which the latter made a conditional promise to fund the UPP’s political campaign.

 

The story claims the two met at an unnamed Italian restaurant owned by one “Richard Parker,” who heard the conversation.

 

Both Lovell and a spokesperson for Choksi are rejecting the statement as a lie and categorically deny that any such meeting or discussion took place.

 

The UPP, meanwhile, has investigated the story run by SKN News.  The Party is reliably informed that it was fabricated by “a Nevisian … who is a spinner for Gaston [Browne].”

 

Meanwhile, a UPP Executive Member describes the fake-news article as a “deflection.”

 

She refers to the rumours now in circulation which allege that the Antigua Labour Party’s campaign is about to receive a significant cash injection from so-called investors in Dubai.

 

Prime Minister Browne and his wife, Maria Browne, the Minister of Lands, are currently in Dubai attending a World Government Summit hosted by the ruler of that emirate.

 

“We are not at all deceived by this concocted ‘regional story,’” the Executive member says.  “This is nothing but a red herring thrown across the trail by a nervous Antigua Labour Party,” she states.

  1. CORRUPTION CORRUPTION…UPP got caught. More to come.
    ANA SALOME ( CRAZY and INSANE ) HOW DO SPIN THIS…

    • You never see SMOKE without Fire…Why UPP Executive afraid to mention His / Her name. I can smell CORRUPTION all over this one. UPP come clean.

    • AGRIN you must admit that all this story implies is that the Silly Season is really upon us giving rise to all sorts of false ridiculous stories.

      • No Charles, All that this Story exposes is that Lovell will lie and deny any and everything. It is not a crime in Antigua to solicit Campaign financing. And we know who the big contributors of Campaign Financing in this country are. Let’s see who can raise more money in the end. Cause Campaigning is not cheap. All the paraphernalia and the various concerts. SOE gone so it will be big and wild when the Big Red Train starts moving.

    • Lol….. Oh what a tangle web they weave. …. ! Clearly Smarty J, UPP get caught again in their dirty act… Never again do we want them to manage the affairs of this country….. They are a deceptive, dunce & corrupted political party …..

      • So True.
        DECEPTIVE: in a way or to an extent that gives a misleading impression; to a lesser or greater extent than appears the case.
        DUNCE: a person who is slow at learning; a stupid person.
        CORRUPT: having or showing a willingness to act dishonestly in return for money or personal gain.

      • NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!! 🎯

        Jonathan Joseph already told us what to do “VOTE ALP”🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

  2. A few things are curious about this “PRESS RELEASE” that does not clearly indicate its source, which I believe to be the UPP:

    1. Why are UPP spokespersons afraid to be named in a release? So this release refers to “a UPP Executive Member”. Does she not have a name, and why is she afraid to have her name publicly attributed to her comments? That suggests to me that the person is NOT willing to put themselves on the line for Lovell or the UPP. This is instructive because it means that there is some doubt about Lovell’s integrity as a leader.

    2. A PRESS RELEASE that emanates from the UPP is quoting a spokesperson from Choksi regarding an accusation about his funding their campaign. In the first case, Choksi is not going to confirm such a report that he has made a deal with the UPP to fund their campaign as that would raise so many more questions. Therefore, Choksi has a vested interest in denying the report. His spokesperson’sdenial therefore carries absolutely no weight. In the second case, the mere fact that the UPP got a statement from Choksi means that there is some measure of communication between the two. Why didn’t Choksi issue an independent statement? Consequently, one is led to believe that there is in FACT constant communication between the two sides, and so the possibility of some sort of campaign promise being made.

    #Checkmate!

    • So who’s Richard Parker?

      I’d say SKN is in big trouble!

      No name secret Italian Restaurant, owner Richard Parker should be easy to find – doesn’t exist!

      #Checkmate!

    • what is the NAME of the Choksi spokesperson? The UPP Executive is a “she” so it must be one of the following……

      1.GISELE ISAAC-ARRINDELL
      2.GISELE ISAAC-ARRINDELL
      3.GISELE ISAAC-ARRINDELL

      Jackie Quinn went as far as to “interview” Choksi on her Facebook “news” page. Time will reveal what was promised in exchanged for what……

  3. UPP is looking for funding ? What a SCANDAL . 75 % of the UPP Candidates DO NOT have a job. How the hell They want to run a country…CHUPTZ CHUPTZ

    • The UPP was banking on some $$ promised to be made from the *26 ACRES* of farmland. Algernon where is all the $$ you made from farming to contribute to campaign funding? And your business partner turned in the RECEIPTS to medical benefits yet? RECEIPTS are needed to close his file for a procedure worth approx. XCD$400,000.00

      no money from the *26 ACRES* to date Algie?

  4. SKN NEWS:I thought you were a legitimate NEWS PORTAL out of St.Kitts. Don’t you verify,before rushing off to print. Harold Lovell and Choksi should sue your arses for disseminating of false information about them.I would not accept an apology.

    • @ RED KOOLAID

      How do you know this is fake ? UPP got caught. Egg on UPP face.

      Looking forward to CRAZY ANA SALOME and Tabor for spinning,

      • Annie is no longer credible. I would be interesting to hear what Tabor is thinking. For sure, IF there is no truth to this both Choski and Lovell with sue the St. Kitts paper. Let’s see if they do. If they don’t, we’ll know why!!!!!

      • This is such a disappointment to see such false and baseless statements made to discredit Mr. Lovell. What fool would name the owner rather than to name the restaurant? But we the younger generation are waking up Mr. senator @PHILLIP.G, yes we know who you are.

  5. I wonder if the man from Nevis behind this fake news, pay observer for the ad’s he ran on behalf of the Labour party during the last election?

    • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 KING LYADD LOVELL LIMPY JOE IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF ABIB COLLAPSE said he didn’t know the Odebrecht guys, then he changed his tune after he was caught with his pants down! 😆🤣😂😆

  6. You never see SMOKE without Fire…Why UPP Executive afraid to mention His / Her name. I can smell CORRUPTION all over this one. UPP come clean.

  7. More Lies and misinformation being released somehow by the ABLP, they are taking the electorate for dawn fools.

    These evil political tactics may have worked in 80s and 90s, but no-way will this work in the 00s with a wise and more educated public.

    WHAT A NASTY MAN

  11. Hard to feel comfortable when the husband is the minister of Finance and the wife is the minister of Lands. I’m sure they are not doing anything illegal. However, they are

  12. One thing me know for sure no political organization tells more lies than UPPITES from their inception. They have a history of deception and lies. These people are so pathetic and shameful. They love cussing others and are diabolical in their behaviors. It’s just in their modus operandi to be deceitful and devilish.

  13. This is the same HL who denied having any relationship with the Odebrecht crew. We then saw cheques with his name on it and he then admitted they had him on retainer. When he was finance minister, its chief architect here, Franca, would join Lovell on his overseas trips.

    • Yup! KING LYADD LOVELL LIMPY JOE IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF ABIB COLLAPSER.

  14. Mr Lovell, you need to teach your soldiers how this politics thing go in Antigua. Really.
    Last night Serpent tried hard to show one of them why he should not take his constituency funds to pay for trucks to remove the garbage from his constituency, In short, Serpent was trying to show him that was bad politics, and that if he did that he would be letting the representative who is also the minister of health off the hook. He tried to show him that what he was doing was not smart politics.
    But he was not convinced. He seemed to be very puffed up that he and his members were going to show Molwyn how to do it by spending his money to do the government job. I never heard more foolishness coming from a politician in waiting. He needs to talk less and listen more.
    You need to start teaching these neophytes about how politics go inna dis here Antigua. If they want to win, and if they still can’t get it, they need to watch ALP 101 and how they operate and learn a few things from them. This is not church nor Sunday school.

    • also need to focus on READING COMPREHENSION, GRAMMAR, SUBJECT-VERB-AGREEMENT, SPELLING, PRONUNCIATION, PARTS OF SPEECH, COMMON SENSE, REASONING and PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS.

      Go back to the drawing board. Not ready yet..like Justin Simon

      “G-R-E-A-T-F-U-L” said it at least 5 times
      “FOOTS” repeated it confidently
      “KA-KAH-KAPA-KA-PAH-CIT-TAH” sigh…..

      A burning shame and disgrace!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. The current admin promised India to deliver choksi at all cost…
    Why make promises when you know you can’t keep!!
    Upp was never promised anything
    Look who received gifts from choksi
    Just look!!!!

  16. Harry you get caught with your pants down again🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 if SNK is lying then sue them its that simple. After all UPP member is quick to sue when lied on so Harry if the story is fake sue them 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Datta arl he need fu do. Isn’t he a “lawyer” after all??? A real 🤡 the UPP have a “lead” them.

  17. KING LYADD LOVELL LIMPY JOE IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF you told Darren this morning that you met Choksi at a “restaurant” some years ago 😆🤣😂 🤣

    Get your story straight King Lyadd!!!!

  18. Lovell what did you order? Meatballs or Fettuccini Alfredo 😋😋😋 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 ya hungry belly self

  19. In the run up for the 2004 election, Baldwin Spencer was asked if Allen Stanford gave the party campaign finance. After Stanford on TV demonstrated to give Molwyn Joseph and Gaston Browne money for their constituency. Baldwyn denied as usual, but when Stanford was asked, he simply said go ask Baldwyn. Later we all learned that Stanford gave both the ALP and the UPP since he did not want to favor one party over the other. And the good lawyer Errol Cort, who was also his lawyer, was now on the UPP ticket. And I can tell you UPP got more than ALP, and all this because of Asot Michael, who was like a thorn in the flesh of Allen Stanford. But Stanford being a USA citizen, could not ever give money directly to any political party, or he could be sued in the USA for Foreign Corrupt Practices. Therefore a middle man was used to channel the money to the two parties.

  20. Lovell told Darren that he doesn’t want to reveal his “source” of who told him that the Nevis writer made up the story.

    Imagine his character is under attack and Lovell is COVERING FOR HIS ALLEGED “Source” 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 boy if Lovell LIE wan more time.

  22. IF CHOSKI WANTS TO FUND THE UPP CAMPAIGN WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
    WHAT DISQUALIFIES CHOSKI FROM FUNDING THE UPP CAMPAIGN?
    IF THE STORY IS FALSE MR LOVELL SHOULD TAKE IT TO COURT SIMPLE.

    • EXACTLY!!! so why has Lovell not threatened a lawsuit? Listen to his interview on UPP/NewsCo radio this morning with Mr. Ward.

      he fumbled, confused himself and was just a BLUFF!! Somebody is lying and from the looks of it, it is not the SK New report.

      Stay tuned!!!!!!

  23. “Plain and simple he went to meet with Choksi to get dirt now the dirt is on him. Shame shame Lovell you are going to jail for the airport funds.”
