Forestry Officer Claims He Never Hung Up on the PM

Dean Flowers

Was the Prime Minister being truthful about the forestry officer hanging up the phone on him? According to P.S.U. President Dean Flowers, the suspended officer was never on a phone call with the Prime Minister. He says that the public has been misled.

“The public has been misled into thinking that the officer in charge cut off the Prime Minister as the Prime Minister said in his interview, the officer set down phone pan ahn. I believe that is what he suggested. I want to clarify that at no point in time did Mister Chi have any phone in his possession. I want to state categorically that at no point in time did the Prime Minister call Mister Chi on his phone and spoke to Mister Chi on Mister Chi’s phone. Neither did the Prime Minister call any other law enforcement agency that was there to speak with them or to speak with Mister Chi. Mister Chi had no phone in his possession, in his hand. As a matter of fact, his hands were occupied with removing the illegal plants. Whether or not the Prime Minister was speaking to the “mother-in-law” – or some other individual on the premises on speakerphone in an attempt to intimidate or speak to Mister Chi, I don’t know. The investigation and the case will prove on whose phone. So I cannot see how Mister Chi coulda mi set down phone pan the Prime Minister when in fact his hands were occupied with plants and at no point in time was he holding a telephone speaking to the Prime Minister.”
