heated exchange involving several senators ended yesterday afternoon with opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) Senator Damani Tabor reporting to police an alleged threat on his life by the Leader of Government Business in the Senate Lennox Weston.
According to Tabor, he made the report to “Corporal Shaw and Constable Shadrach at Langford’s Police Station,” indicating also that Weston incited violence against him.
Tabor told OBSERVER media, “Senator Lennox Weston incited my abduction and murder. I have made a full report to the police. This repugnant behaviour is not excused by parliamentary immunity and we are calling on all UPP caretakers, spokespeople and executive members to beef up their personal security.”
He suggested the police are sympathisers of the ruling Antigua Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) and said that “despite this” he hopes they take his report seriously as they did when “the PM spoke and I was put in chains [for] 24 hours. The PM spoke and George Wehner was hunted like prey. We condemn the increasingly desperate and violent ABLP who will descend to any depth to preserve their failing administration.”
Tabor said based on the comments Weston made, the UPP “demand[s] Weston do the honourable thing and resign like any decent legislator in other countries would.”
Senator Weston, speaking in the Senate just before 2 pm yesterday, said he would have taken certain actions against Tabor for his (Tabor’s) comments about the proposed arrangement between the government and the charity group Share Foundation owned by Maria Browne, the wife of Prime Minister Gaston Browne.
Weston said, “Stop being so cynical about Share giving a little money to help us build up something. Because somebody l’il black child give us some money you want to take her like if she’s a criminal? And you keep on saying it over and over again like if it’s a big point. Well if it’s my daughter I would have already carry you at Parham Wharf and drown you, I already told you so.”
