“I tried to reach her and could not contact her for a couple of hours where the police had her, and then eventually was able to speak to her at around 11 pm last night”.
“She said to me that the police told her they have images from the camera of her pelting a stone and hitting the Prime Minister”.
“She said she never pelt a stone; she said she never even had one in her hand, but she confessed. The way they had her there, she admitted, or they got her to sign a statement without a lawyer, that she did it and she wants to apologise to the Prime Minister”.
Bacchus – Baptise said she asked her client repeatedly why she wanted to apologise. However, she could not answer.
“Now I’m learning that she is not all there, so they are playing on the fact that she’s not very focused. They took her down to the hospital in the police van to talk to the Prime Minister on Thursday; of course, she was there a long time, and that did not happen”.
“When I went to see her on Friday morning she tells me they have not charged her yet but they are getting ready to take her to see the Prime Minister”.
Now, could you imagine someone who hit the PM, that the police will take this person to visit him?
“I warn them that I am her lawyer and to do not carry her anywhere without me being present, and she’s not to give any more statement to them because the first statement is not a proper statement, it was one obtained unlawfully, and therefore it is not a good statement”.
“They are beginning to set up a divide and rule and have the country divide. That is what they are trying to do. The police are expecting Gonsalves will forgive the woman, and he looks good”.
“This is an orchestrated thing, and now I believe that the police baton busts his head. Gonsalves is simply trying to slow down the protests and shift the focus as to what is happening”.
On Thursday evening, a release from the Prime Ministers office said;
“Approximately 200 demonstrators, responding to a call to action from the Leader of the Opposition, picketed the Parliament and blocked the entrance to the building, when the crowd prevented the vehicle carrying the Honourable Prime Minister from driving through the gate of the Parliament, he alighted the vehicle and attempted to enter on foot”.
“An Opposition demonstrator then hurled a projectile at the Prime Minister, which struck him in the head, inches above the temple. The Prime Minister, bleeding profusely, was taken to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital by his security detail”.
On Thursday night, Government Senator Julian Francis said a woman was arrested.
“I want to say a woman was arrested; there may be more. She wanted to apologise to the Prime Minister. I said no, she is not going in front of my political leader to do what; because you got locked up, you want to apologise”. Francis stated.
“Go and apologise to the leader of the Opposition. Let me tell you something, be careful what you do; social media is watching you; sometimes, it’s better than the police”, Francis said.
