Despite criticism from the opposition and many in the public that his decision to revoke the ministerial portfolio of MP Asot Michael was premature, Prime Minister Gaston Brown is saying he only makes decisions thoughtfully.
After news broke Monday that Michael had been detained for questioning by London Metroploitan Police, the Prime Minister, within hours, announced that he was removing Michael as Tourism, Investment and Energy Minister.
Later, word came that Michael was released and free to travel. The United Progressive Party, Vere Bird III of Antigua True Labour Party and some politicial analysts said the prime minister acted too quickly without all the facts.
Browne, however, responded on Facebook, a favourite medium of his, referring to himself in the third person.
“Gaston Browne never takes premature decisions, no matter how speedily the decision was made. You can now disabuse your mind of that notion. Peace & Love,” he said.
Meantime, the Head of Caribbean, Central America & Mexico Department of thr UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), Patrick Reilly, gave insight into the reason behind MP Michael’s detention.
Reilly wrote that Michael was questioned about bribes that a UK national allegedly paid for business contracts in the Caribbean.
