before 10:30 pm where the Police, Ambulance Service and Fire Service arrived on
This incident occurred at the end, another day of hard campaigning. The
independent candidate, Asot Michael reported the matter to head of the Criminal
Investigation Department Assist Commissioner of Police Mr. Cabral. The
commitment for a prompt investigation never materialized. This incident comes
upon the recent report of drones flying over the home of the candidate less than a
week ago. This occurred while close to 80 of his campaign workers were conducting
A request was made by the candidate to trace the calls made to his cell number.
The candidate even went further and reached out to Attorney General Hon
Steadroy O. Benjamin, Minister responsible for Justice and National Security.
An assurance was given by the AG that the CID would conduct an immediate
investigation. At the time of writing this press release, however, the candidate was
still waiting to give a formal statement on the matter.
The candidate is therefore calling on the Commissioner of Police Atlee Rodney to
provide the necessary security measures for his life, family and his many campaign
workers. The candidate assures the public his mission of representing the good
people of St Peters will not be derailed.
