ST JOHN’S, Antigua — A senior member of the governing United Progressive Party (UPP) in Antigua and Barbuda has called on Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer to drop corruption charges against former leader Lester Bird and other members of the previous administration.

Daniel says this should begin with forgiveness for former prime minister Lester Bird.

The former prime minister and a few of his colleagues are facing a slew of cases in the courts relating to their stewardship.

Daniel says, given the ongoing economic crisis in the country, all those who can help should take the opportunity and do so.

Post election court battles have left the government and opposition in Antigua bitterly divided.

Meanwhile, the opposition Antigua Labour Party and the trade unions plan a massive meeting on Thursday night in the country’s capital, St John’s.
