|Former MP Anselm Clouden
June 22 St. Georg's Grenada: With phase one of the inquiry into
bribery allegations against this island's Prime Minister Keith Mitchell having been concluded, former Member of the Upper
House of parliament Anselm Couden says it has become apparent that this whole exercise was designed to vindicate the
Clouden who is also one of the island's prominent attorney's said. "Indeed, without the Commissioner
having evidence from David Marchant,
Timothy Bass and Dr. Eric Resteiner, the Prime Minister's Attorney, Lawrence
said that there was no evidence against his client and therefore the
inquiry should be brought to an end."
added, "Evidently, there was a conflict in the inquiry to wit: the two police witnesses called who accompanied the Prime Minister
to Switzerland claims that at no time they saw the Prime Minister receive any monies which is
inconsistent with the Prime
Minister own admission to the nation. In fact,
while he was at the house of Dr. Resteiner he claimed that he had received
12,000.00 or approximately 15,000.00."
It is qute clear that the evidence of the two Police Officers is therefore contradicting
to that of the Prime Minister because the Police Officers said that the briefcase carried was inspected they did not
see any money whatsoever there were only documents. Someone therefore is not speaking the truth either the Prime Minister
or the Police Officers.
Clouden warned, " The fact that the Prime Minister on National television claimed to be
vindicated of wrong doing without the evidence of Dr. Eric Resteiner, Timothy Bass and David Marchant put the integrity of
the commission in jeopardy."
It is evident, that the government is not prepared to use the appropriate
to secure the evidence of Dr. Resteiner, Bass and Marchant and
also to procure a copy of the alleged tape for public consumption.
Speaking on public servants called as witnesses louden said that it was plain to Grenadians who see that the despicable
display of public servants being chastised by the Commissioner for sloppy procedures, in the Commission was demonstrative
of a white wash.
He said having spoken to a wide spectrum of the population, the people of Grenada are calling
for a full scale criminal investigation into the matter. An investigation which would involve, Interpol, the F.B.I, Scotland
Yard and the Criminal Investigation Department of Grenada. It is through this investigatory process that the truth of this
saga would be made manifest Clouden concluded.
