PM denies EU visa imposition on Antiguans


Prime Minister Gaston Browne is denying that Antigua and Barbuda is about to lose its visa-fress access to a number of European countries.

Browne placed the blame for these reports squarely at the feet of the country’s main opposition the United Progressive Party.

He told supporters on the campaign trail tonight that the UPP is “determined to destroy the country.”

The ABLP leader was making reference to a blog that he says is spreading the false information.

He says he’s written to the host of the site over their attempts to destroy this country’s image.

“They have some propaganda stating that the European Union will actually be introducing visa requirements which is not true.”

Browne said the blog is also alleging “that we gave diplomatic passports to terrorists.”

“I call upon Harold Lovell tonight to provide the evidence of a single person who held and Antiguan passport who was found to be a terrorist in any country,” he added.

The PM alleges that the blog is working with the UPP and is being funded by a well-known hotelier.

  1. Am must be a blind man what have pm brown do for antigua and Barbuda in his 4 year in office i honest cant see his work

  2. Agreed wholeheartedly…. Importantly, they should independently varied the fact’s before posting an important issue like this….I guess the silliness of Politics can cloud these writing’s….

  3. That’s what the PM said about Canada and Lovell turned out to be correct. The PM looks tired and worried to death. March 21 come quick please.

  4. Just like they denied the visa free access to Canada. I am willing to bet that this measure will be imposed after the elections.

  5. The information was out there about the required Visa requirements for Canada for some time .Do not expect to be notified about European Visa requirements. Gaston and Max Fernandez will annoince it like a Thief in.the Night. By the way Gaston say we have free acess to the Ukraine, such a joke. Vacation or shopping in the Ukraine anyone.
    The Harold Lovell
    Goverment in the Sunshine is taking back our country from the red shirt gang those Devils. Stay tuned.

  6. Today is March 14. I have been without water for 2 weeks and my tanks are empty. He promised water 14 days after the last election. He lied about that. He lies about everything. I guess he is just a born liar
