A woman from Layou in St Vincent and the Grenadines has been charged with wounding following an assault on Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves on Thursday.


Annamay Lewis will spend the weekend in lock-up after she was denied bail ahead of her court appearance next Monday.


The Prime Minister suffered a blow to the head on Thursday when an object was hurled by a protestor outside the Parliament in Kingstown.


The incident happened as Dr Gonsalves was attempting to enter the Parliament Building on foot after protestors blocked the gate, preventing entry to his vehicle.


Meanwhile, Prime Minister Gonsalves is now in Barbados where he was transported for an MRI. He used a Facebook post on Friday afternoon to reveal he had suffered a concussion and will be monitored over the next four to six weeks.


The incident and the subsequent images of the bloodied Prime Minister have dominated headlines across the region and beyond.


Caricom Chairman and Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Hon. Gaston Browne has deplored the assault.

  1. Mama u ga pay fa ya dunceness… !! If there are more like u out de, de law a tell dem “” there is no excuse for dunceness so wet ya hand & wait fa me”” !!

  2. Free to protest; But without violence.
    One can be charged for assault from just pointing their finger in a person’s face and dig them in the cheek. If she is guilty, she should fact the full extent of the law.

  3. Well lady, you will now face the music. And I really hope the judge or magistrate throws the entire book at you and makes you an example for all to see that we do not tolerate this type of violence in our politics in the Caribbean. Shame on you.

  4. PM Gonsalves in so long and he na build a decent hospital yet? sounds like that other place. Things that make you go Hmmmmmmm!
