Rape in Antigua: Day 20

24

Today marks 20 days since Antigua News Room (ANR) first reported that a young woman had filed a report with the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda, accusing a member of the Gaston Browne Cabinet of raping her.

Today, 20 days later, the country remains in the dark about whether the Cabinet Minister has been questioned by police or if he is still a member of the Cabinet.

  1. Thanks ANR for taking the lead.

    Because there is no credible watchdog or opposition in the country to balance the system of governance.

    • No No No. Melchesidec. Shame on you.

      How about saying there is no credible governance in antigua and the doo doo police force cannot interfere with your government minister without the permission of your PM.
      Mel, you are asking for vigilante justice.

      • @No justice no peace
        See things as they are.
        If the reasonable expectation was for the government to be fair and just then there would be no need for opposition.

        NGO and opposition has a role to play in ensuring justice and fairness in any society.

      • @ No justice no peace

        WRIT of MANDAMUS: The duty sought to be enforced must have two qualities: It must be a duty of public nature and the duty must be imperative and should not be discretionary.

        A credible opposition or NGO can file seek the above in the High Court.

        • @ Melchesidec
          If they start by filing a writ regarding this case when will the filings end with so many outstanding cases.
          Antigua is controlled by a dictator PM

        • @ Melchesidec.
          You are looking for a reason to point finger at the opposition parties instead of blaming your ruling ALP for the bs that’s going on in Antigua.
          Is it your consumption of the RED KOOLAID why you refuse to say anything anti ALP.
          Stop being a J ass and admit your govt is truly a failed experiment.
          You are barking up the wrong tree. Call out your PM

  2. I love this..Keep up the pressure. let’s not let this crime disappear like the many that we all forget after time .

  3. Thats the longest quarantine, the PM gave the news when i find it was a matter for the police now neither of the two is saying or doing anything. He used psychology to try fool the public that he dont stand nonsense. What happen now? The cabinet is not giving the police the approval?

  4. Can the relevant authority please seek a pardon for the lady that was sent to jail for six months please?

    A pardon like what the caucaside who brought in the ammunition got….

  5. This reminds me so much of of the Trump supporters. I don’t care which party you support my question is DON’T YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS ARTICLE HEADLINE ? DO YOU NOT HAVE A MALE IN YOUR FAMILY A SON OR NEPHEW . This seems like Caribbean Trump I shoot someone on broadway and I can get away with it .

    • @BOYS……UP!
      …Simplicity says, “no where #Bodily, is everywhere #Spiritually!”
      If, at 6:56am 21st. Nov, COVID-19, you felt the hair stand up on your arms, or the back of your neck, I just shook your hand, and bowed to you!

      Thank you! You hit the nail squarely, on the point, and before it could enter the wood, the tip became the #Head, and the head became, the #Point.
      YOU ARE ON POINT…
      And, a cloud must Hangout over POINT, Antigua, and shadow Gaston Browne – PM, every move he makes, letting him, Gaston know, that the Omnipotence Spirit of the Universe which, I assume he prays to, for the care, safety, health and strength of his newborn girl child, and the rest of his immediate and extended #Family is now, shadowing him like the Natural shadow, given to him at birth, the The Silent One(not Ivor Bird, in ZDK’s studios), but the #SOUL of his life.

      This case, whether it has ‘merits…’ or not, is affecting the #SOUL, of the Nation!

      RASpect…..

  6. NGOs and Opposition has a major role to play in governance.

    By now a credible opposition would have already petitioned the court for a writ of mandamus to cause the Commissioner of Police to do his duty.

    How come I know this I am not a lawyer…..

    • She is not a politician nor a high profile person so she will never get ample media coverage nor “concern citizens” picketting for her.

  7. Mel, you are chatting a lot today, maybe too much. What all decent people want is for this alleged rapist to be charged and arrested, and given a fair trial. IF he’s guilty, he should be castrated plus given 60 years in Her Majesty’s Guest House at 1745.

  8. Thank you ANR.For keeping this fire burning.For this is a story that should be on the front burners.Keep it up.For this is a very,very,serious accusation—RAPE.

    • Ras Smood:Playing a wise guy,again.
      He could not plead the fifth.Not a part of Antigua and Barbuda legal proceedings. Only inna Merica.LOL

      • @BLACK-MAN…👊😄😅🤣Me jus a throw some carn, innah me Callaban(dove/pigeon trap), fu see if dis bird, tek de bait!
        Translation…
        I’m simply throwing some words, at the #Labourites!
        …………………….

        However, he can channel Bill ‘Slicky-Dicky’ Clinton, and claim that, I puffed on the #Spliff, but didn’t inhale, as I gave her a #Shotgun, and before you know it, I was shooting #BlankSperm! And, according to the definition, of RAPE IN ANTIGUA, jerking on her dress, is not the same as penetrating with then pulling out QUICK! QUICK! QUICK!
        The only thing with his, #alibi, she had already channeled #Moneykah “I did not have sexual relations with her” Lahwinkey!

  9. Since govt not working for the people. The people need to call him out.

    Organise a picket outside his office. Time we stood up for injustice by this govt.
