Top Official Denies Sexual Harassment Claims And Threatens To Sue

4

A top official, from the Ministry of Public Works, is denying claims made by over of a dozen women of sexual harassment/sexual assault.

He denied ever having touched or entertained any sexual action or conversation with his accusers.

In addition, the official is threatening to sue and has already filed a pre-action protocol against four workers at the Ministry of Works who he suspects are involved in spreading rumours he claims have tarnished his character.

He is accusing two supervisors and two other employees of causing “false allegations” to be published in the media. He also wants the story to be retracted.

The Public Works official has been transferred out of the department and the matter has now been brought before the Solicitor General, Martin Camacho.

According to the office of the Solicitor General, the case was a client-counsel matter and that the details surrounding it could not yet be discussed.

Over a dozen female workers at the Ministry of Public Works security department were refusing to work with the top official there, claiming that they are being sexually harassed.

The workers have reportedly written around eight letters dated as early as January 19, 2019 to the Minister of Public Works, Lennox Weston, and the Permanent Secretary Clarence Pilgrim.

One security guard, who is a mother of three children, said that she fears for her life as the top official has beaten, choked and squeezed her.

The mother of three claims she took up a side job as a janitor at the man’s home, however, according to her he became obsessed with her and the relationship became physical.

  1. What about the other “bubby grabber” who violated a female at a certain popular restaurant at Redcliffe Quay? He til a grab bubby?

  2. In this day and age, with all kinds of surveillance equipment(s) from cell phones to earing microphones/cameras, one never knows where, when, why they’re being recorded.
    This will be an interesting investigation, and case with the power of #MeToo been tapped into.

  3. The People’s Government will have to get to the bottom of this. There are two sides to this one, and the Truth must be brought forth. IF there is nothing to these allegations, WHY was the guy “transferred”? A full explanation is necessary, for all concerned, and that includes the People of Antigua and Barbuda. Get it all out in the open. Truth must prevail, whatever that truth might be.
