KINGSTON, Match 24, 2021 - Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of the Peoples National Party, attorney-at-law John Junor, says the party has referred allegations of a criminal nature against an Officer of the Party to the competent authorities.

In a media release today, Mr. Junor said in his capacity as Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of the People’s National Party, he was sent a letter in which a member made allegations of a criminal nature against an Officer of the Party. 

"The Party has sent the letter to the competent authorities, in keeping with the requirements of the law.  In addition, I have recommended to the accuser that the matter be reported by her, to the authorities," Mr. Junor said.

He pointed out that "the allegations have not been substantiated. No evidence has been provided in support thereof. I wish to make it clear that no investigation has been commenced or is underway within the Party, in relation to those allegations against the officer."

The Disciplinary Committee chairman said he was "aware that the officer has retained legal counsel to vigorously defend his reputation, and pointed out that "because of the nature of the allegations, the Party does not propose to speak any further on this matter, and will allow the law to take its course."
