U.D.P. Chairman Weighs in on Narco 11 Bust

Michael Peyrefitte

But, there is one aspect of the narco-eleven bust that U.D.P. Chairman Michael Peyrefitte says is not being talked about enough.  When the initial four police officers responded to the illicit landing, they came under heavy gunfire, possibly from their own colleagues.  Here is what Peyrefitte had to say at today’s U.D.P. press conference.


Michael Peyrefitte, Chairman, U.D.P.

“First of all, remember the Prime Minister, I don’t know if you remember the Prime Minister, I had called him a liar. He had implied that there is no way drug planes could land without U.D.P. ministers knowing about it or being involved. Well, if that is the narrative or logic, well tell us Prime Minister, which one of your ministers are involved in this? The logic only follows, if you are saying that is the case. You have a situation where it is bad enough that criminals are engaged with criminals. But, nobody is talking about this aspect of that plane landing last week or a couple weeks in Bladen. When the police officers approached the plane, they were shot at allegedly and clearly if you draw a reasonable inference by other police officers. So you have a scenario where it is so bad, that police officers shot at police officers. And if that is the scenario we are dealing with, a policeman could shoot after another policeman, what you think they wah do with you and me. That is the state we are in, and where is the Minister of Home Affairs?  Where is his C.E.O. who has so much to say? Silent, absent, just like the Prime Minister, silent absent, just like the Prime Minister.”
