In a statement, PM Ralph Gonsalves stated that both common law and statute laws give the right to the member of Parliament to go to Parliament without any hindrance and exit of MP from the Parliament.
PM Gonsalves said that he would never allow any crazy and their fellow travellers to prevent or block his path to Parliament. He again will walk, as he did on August 5th, if needs be. And let the silly ones blame the victim in her exercise of her rights.
The Prime Minister of St Vincent & the Grenadines island – Ralph Gonsalves, was hit by a stone while moving for the Parliament session on Thursday.
He was immediately taken to Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.
The incident took place when the Prime Minister was heading towards the Parliament session through a group of some 200 protesters when he was hit by a stone just above his temple.
The Prime Minister was bleeding profusely. During a Parliament session in the evening, Finance Minister Camillo Gonsalves informed that the medical staff had suggested that the Prime Minister be flown to Barbados for an MRI scan.
The people are protesting related to the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine matter for the health officials.
Various videos have been circulated all over the internet, in which the Prime Minister is seen in the bath of blood. It is perceived that behind this incident, there is a hand of the opposition party.
A few weeks ago, the Prime Minister stated, “Given the amount of the misrepresentations and misinformation by some individuals about this Bill, it is necessary and desirable to put the record straight.”
The Office of the Prime Minister has issued a statement on the incident and stated that PM Gonsalves had informed his colleagues that he is recovering and affirms that no lawless mob would prevent him from doing the work for citizens.
