Attorney General Faris Al Rawi has failed to respond to my revelations about a conspiracy involving a senior public official to commit burglary, theft, wiretapping and other serious crimes.
But this is hardly surprising, because after a year, Al Rawi has still not acknowledged the paternity of the children photographed bearing high-powered and dangerous military weapons at a training facility. Instead of dealing with the serious issue of a Watergate-type scandal at the offices of an Opposition Senator, the Government, through Minister Camille Robinson-Regis, returned to a matter that has long been in the public domain.
This reflects the desperation and hopelessness of a Government that will support or endorse criminality against its political opponents. The Government has refused to respond to the exposé of an alarming move to break into the offices of an Opposition Senator and to plant a recording device, steal his computer, laptop and documents for a dreadful political witch hunt.
It is deeply disturbing that, as Attorney General, Mr. Al Rawi has not denounced such serious lawlessness and recommended an urgent police investigation. This reveals even more recklessness and irresponsibility, which could well be linked to Mr. Al Rawi’s Cabinet demotion to Stuart Young. Mr. Al Rawi now has the double responsibility of reporting to the country on his children with guns and on his knowledge about the sinister, illegal and troubling attempt to burglarise and wiretap the offices of an Opposition Senator.
In the meantime, I urge the Acting Commissioner of Police to undertake an investigation to determine whether any public official is guilty of misconduct, corruption and other serious crimes.
