Dr. Ashni Singh still accountable says APNU
The main opposition APNU is not about to let the finance minister Dr Ashni Singh off the hook, even though the party feels that he is getting special protocol from the police following that mash night accident.
Today Joseph Harmon executive member of the APNU said for the police to now take a statement 9 days later is raising eyebrows. He said people are now benefiting from what he sees as different treatment with regards to how the law is applied.
Police Force Crime chief Seelal Persaud said that as far as he is aware the same procedures the force adopts in all accidents are being followed in Minister Singh’s case
The crime chief said is he was unaware that the Minister gave a statement to the Police. The Minister, through the attorney general, said he was not under the influence of alcohol, unlike what eyewitnesses have said. In addition, the Minister left the scene of the accident without rendering assistance, but one of his close friends, Brian Yong, soon showed up to make arrangements for a settlement.
