Crime Watch host: ILP threat to national security
Television personality Ian Alleyne says Independent Liberal Party (ILP) interim leader Jack Warner is on a campaign to assassinate his character and to overthrow the PP Government with “lies and untruths.” He was responding to allegations made by Warner at a ILP meeting in Diego Martin on Tuesday night in which he accused Alleyne of working with rogue police officers to promote his image in time for next month’s St Joseph by-election.
Alleyne has been tipped as a possible candidate for the seat but has not confirmed the rumour. In a telephone interview yesterday, Alleyne denied Warner’s allegation and said the upcoming local government elections on October 21 had no impact on his popular Crime Watch programme which airs on CNC 3. He said: “I never had to wait for elections to execute my plans. I have been doing so everyday for the past few years.
“They (ILP) should be arrested and taken into custody because they are a threat to national security.” Tuesday’s meeting was not the first time Warner made allegations against Alleyne. During a political meeting on September 26 in Point Fortin, Warner had claimed Attorney General Anand Ramlogan had asked Alleyne if he was interested in the National Security Minister post.
Warner said Ramlogan had contacted Alleyne by phone and had Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar in a three-way conversation on the possibility of Alleyne joining her Cabinet after a reshuffle. Alleyne appeared on a PP platform last week Monday in San Fernando and denied Warner’s allegations.
