Statement by the Hon. Picewell Forbes MPLeader of Opposition Business in Parliament:
Re: The return of the Opposition caucus to the House and Senate
The general public is advised that the Opposition parliamentarians and Senators will return to the House at the next sitting. The Lower House meets on Wednesday, 27th February 2019.
The Opposition is satisfied that the point of the boycott of Parliament was sufficiently made in the public domain about the corrupt conduct of the government and in particular, the conduct of Ministers Marvin Dames, Duane Sands and Carl Bethel, whose behavior in the Frank Smith's case undermined the rule of law and were roundly condemned by an independent and dispassionate judicial review.
The public is further advised that the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Philip Brave Davis, has written a letter to both the Secretaries General of the Commonwealth and CARICOM, formally bringing this egregious issue to the attention of the international community.
The Opposition is fully committed to holding the government's feet to the fire in and out of Parliament on this critical constitutional issue and any other issue of national import.
