Information reaching The Saint Lucia Labour Party is that Prime Minister Hon Allen Chastanet has accused the former SLP Administration of conceptualizing the privatization of the Owen King European Union Hospital.
Leader of the Opposition Hon. Philip J. Pierre categorically denies the statement calling it egregious and may even be malicious.
This untruth can easily be debunked by referencing the Millennium Heights Medical Complex Act that was passed in the House of Parliament in 2015 which states as its objective:
“An Act to establish the Millennium Heights Medical Complex and provide for the establishment and management of the medical complex and for related matters.”
The SLP says that it is convinced that there are no limitations to the Prime Minister’s callous disregard for the truth.
The Saint Lucia Labour Party will issue a full statement on the matter at a subsequent press conference.
