Seattle Washington: It is rather obscene that Prime MinisterKeith
Mitchell should continue to head the government of Grenada when in fact he should surrender himself to the Criminal Investigation
Department. Mitchell told his country men that he used his credit card to finance a trip to Switzerland and other countries
while on a trade and investment promotion tour.
A bold faced Mitchell told his countrymen."What
are the issues in this particular case? I received approximately 15,000 U.S. dollars from the former Trade Counsellor while
in Switzerland. I had already travelled from Grenada to Paris. I had used my own Credit Cards to finance the trip for my delegation
and myself. This was in keeping with the Cabinet Conclusion that the expenses would be reimbursed, in accordance with the
offer from the Trade Counsellor to finance the expenses of the investment promotional trip."
Investigations now reveal that the Grenada International Financial
Services Authority (GIFSA) headed by Michael Creft who was seen on several occasions with Mitchells party jersey
attending political meetings, paid for the trip to the tune of $34,000.The tickets were bought from Atral Travel Services
in St. Georges.
This is enough for Mitchell and his entire Cabinet to resign since he said
it was part of a Cabinet conclusion and no member of Cabinet denied or challenge him, therefore they are all in the sameboat
and should resign also.
The Cabinet must be remembered for maintaining its silence and every
member will definitely be remembered as been part of the most corrupt government the entire Caribbean has ever known after
No amount of begging for mercy will be able to rectify the situation since
there is absolutely no remorse on the part of Mitchell but moves to show him as a saint. From one lie to another has been
the high lightv of Mitchells regime.
Mitchell you are hereby challenged to take legal actions as you have
done on previous occasions. You know that your days are not only numbered in Grenadian politics but will one day have to answer
before the courts to for all the lies told to the people of Grenada and the international community. We at Carib News
Now have said it before and again we are saying with utmost confidence that Mitchell must vacate office now to save Grenda
from more economic woes.
We are patiently awaing you Sir to fileyour law suit as we are prepared
to expose every iota of corruption that we have documented.
A more than rude awakening awaits you as you exit the corridor of power.
International agencies, investors, donor agencies are advised to abstain from
dealing with this corrupt Mitchell government and await until justice takes it course.
