Team Unity fake news aimed at distracting the public from recent convictions of US$460,000 breaches of trust and fiduciary duties and misappropriation

Basseterre, St Kitts, November 21, 2019, – The St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party has slammed the propaganda mouth piece of Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris and the Team Unity government for posting fake news on their Facebook pages relating to former Prime Minister and current Leader of the Opposition, the Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas.
The SKNLP labelled the published posting by the Team Unity propaganda machinery that Dr. Douglas was held in the United Kingdom for failing to make customs declaration in respect of money that was in his possession while traveling through London “as fake, false, malicious and criminal.”
“Dr Douglas wishes to make it absolutely clear that the statements are categorically false and utterly libelous. There is not one iota of truth in the statements made. The malicious statements are being peddled as part of a disinformation campaign to distract the public from the recent damning court judgment in which (Team Unity Minister of Tourism) Lindsay Grant and (Team Unity Ambassador of Youth, Sports and Culture) Jonel Powell were found guilty of breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty and misappropriation of US$460,000 (EC$1.2 million) belonging to their client, Mr. Tanzil,” the SKNLP statement said.
It said the campaign of disinformation is also aimed at distracting the public from the recent London Bribery scandal in which Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris requested a watch, shoes and money from British billionaire real estate tycoon Peter Singh Virdee,” the statement added.
“The public must not be fooled and must further be put on alert that these nasty political tactics used by associates of Dr. Timothy Harris and Team Unity are part of a strategy to continue to deceive and hoodwink the public,” the SKNLP said, adding: “This is just another dimension of the wanton corruption and diabolical governance practices of the present administration led by Timothy Harris.”
