Tabor says no response from police after “death threat”


There has been “no response” to a police report made by Senator Damani Tabor against a colleague who allegedly threatened to drown him.

The opposition senator and United Progressive Party spokesman said he made the report on May 17, 2017, following pronouncements in parliament by Senate Majority Leader Lennox Weston.

During a sitting of the Upper House Weston told Tabor, “if it was my daughter I would have already carried you to Parham Wharf and drown you.”

Tabor told Antigua News Room he’s not heard back from the police. The report was filed at the Langford’s Police Station.

In a statement released following the alleged threat, the UPP not only called for Weston to resign, but reminded the nation of two incidents.

“The Prime Minister spoke and I was put in chains within 24 hours. The Prime Minister spoke and George Whenner was hunted down like prey,” it said.

Antigua News Room reached out to the police communications unit for an update on the report, but did not receive a response up till the time of this publication.
