Suspension. That’s the final decision following a meeting of the Congress of the People executive with Sport Minister, Anil Roberts yesterday.
Minister Roberts met with the party’s officials last week Thursday and yesterday at the party’s Charlieville office, the decision was made by the party’s executives. COP Leader Prakash Ramadhar described Minister Roberts as uncooperative.
Last week’s meeting came amid continued allegations that Minister Roberts was featured in a video posted to social media in recent weeks. The video sees a man, who is alleged to be the government minister, handling the illegal narcotic, marijuana.
Yesterday, the COP leader said Minister Roberts has been officially banned from participating in all COP party activity. Mr. Ramadhar said his party is ready to respond in court if the need arises. He said Minister Roberts’ suspension will remain in effect until there is more clarity on the video.
