Fire Fred Mitchell, says Opposition Leader Hubert Minnis call to Prime Minister Perry Christie
Minnis Calls For Christie To Fire Fred Mitchell Over Issue Of Cuban Detainees
OPPOSITION Leader Hubert Minnis has this afternoon called for Prime Minister Perry Christie to fire Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell from his Cabinet.
Speaking at a press conference at FNM Headquarters, Mr Minnis said: “It has become clear that Minister Mitchell has exhausted every ounce of credibility as Minister of Foreign Affairs.”
He called on the government to release a ‘full and unedited’ report of all investigations that have been conducted to date into Cuban detainees at the Carmichael Road Detention Centre.
He said: “The Minister of Foreign Affairs has not given a full and honest account of what took place at the detention centre on May 20, 2013.
“The FNM has been advised that several senior government officials and ministers became aware fairly early that a major instance of abuse had taken place.”
