Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony has defended government’s decision on the diplomatic appointment of a Saudi Arabian Billionaire who has been charged with representing St Lucia’s interest on the International Maritime Organization.

Mr Walid Jufali’s diplomatic status and the immunity which protects him from facing civil court proceedings brought by his former wife in divorce proceedings has been the subject of much debate here for the last few weeks.

In reacting to suggestions about  Dr Jufali’s appointment and the fact that he  is largely unknown to St Lucians, Dr Anthony pointed to similar cases .

Dr Anthony has also questioned the motives behind Allen Chastanet’s decision to press that matter
 
Dr Anthony also issued a warning to Allen Chastanet that the ghosts of his past may come to haunt him, if he continues to point an accusatory finger at the government.

He has also sought to clear the air on the identity and credentials of Dr Walid Jufali.

The pronouncements were made on Tuesday night during a political meeting on the Castries Market steps
