PM Threatens Lawsuit against P.U.P.’s Vaughn Gill

And the Prime Minister has made good on his warning.  Barrow and Williams has written Vaughn Gill, host of the P.U.P.’s media organ Positive Vibes Radio.  The letter speaks of statements made by Gill on The Whip Talk Show on several occasions in which he made allegations against PM Barrow, concerning the Sanctuary Bay scam.  According to the letter, Gill’s statements are wholly devoid of truth and amounts to gross defamation, which has caused the Prime Minister demonstrable distress and anguish.  The Prime Minister is asking for substantial compensation on an aggravated basis for injury to his reputation and injury to his feelings. P.U.P. Leader John Briceño says he has read the letter and is ready to take the matter before the court.

“We have been already sent letters that we are going to be sued if we do not offer some kind of apology. But we are waiting for our day in court. Our lawyers would love to have the Prime Minister of the dock. We will be able to ask him all of the questions that we want to ask him and we’ll see what he will do when we go to court.”

 

Gill has until July twenty-third to reply to the Prime Minister’s letter.
