Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has again publicly demonstrated that he is the undisputed supreme leader who determines whether or not the ruling of the High Court in Grenada has merit and shall be honoured or ignored.
In his latest GBN Radio interview Dr Mitchell defended his government’s decision NOT TO PAY Dorset Charles whose watersports property the NNP Government bulldozed and destroyed in 1995.
The Court heard the arguments from both sides and ruled that Dorset Charles had legitimate access to the beachland given to him by the government led by Prime Minister , the late Ben Jones.
Another High Court decision Prime Minister Dr Mitchell is ignoring is the ruling against his government to compensate former Cabinet Secretary Gemma Bain-Thomas who his government upon taking power in 2013 sidelined.
His defense was to lay blame on the previous government and tell plenty of lies. Again, the High Court heard the arguments of both the Government and Mrs Bain-Thomas on the legitimacy of her employment and concluded that she ought to be compensated. Three years and counting and Prime Minister Mitchell is yet to pay a cent.
This is the behaviour of mobs, gangsters, bad boys – the evil of society. The question is where are the good people in civil society to speak out against mob rule?
Are the members of Dr Mitchell’s Cabinet mere followers – afraid to tell him that his behavior sets a horrible example to the citizens of the nation he governs?
Clearly, their fear is to lose his favor and prominent position in the political life of the nation. Of Course to lose favor with the supreme leader is to lose economic strength and power
As a resident of South Saint George and specifically Grand Anse I am feeling the anger and excruciating pain of fellow resident Dorset Charles.
Twenty five years ago, I was on Grand Anse Beach 5-30 in the morning watching the heartless driver of a bulldozer, protected by Royal Grenada Police Force, savagely destroying a fleet of expensive watersport crafts.
I am appalled that good Grenadian Christian voices are all silent, allowing the work of the devil to take deep root.
As a former General Secretary of the Trade Union Council and Worker Representative in the Senate I call on Prime Minister Mitchell to allow the Godly side of him to be manifested. Pay the two citizens of Grenada – the court has ruled in their favor and that ought to be final.
