St. Kitts Opposition Leader still unable to have US Visa reinstated

Leader of the St.Kitts-Nevis Opposition Labour Party Dr Denzil Douglas

In reference to the revocation of Dr. Douglas’ US Visa Journalist Ken Richards of WINN FM news,  reported that “the Americans are quoted as saying that the timing of the revoking of the visa was not done to deliberately coincide with the election campaign, but was the result of a gradual process.”

Dr. Douglas has denied that his US Visa was revoked . However since being ousted of office in February of 2015  the former Prime Minister has not been  on US Soil .

It has been stated but not confirmed that the Former PM has  made at least one attempt to have his US Visa status reinstated and was denied according to sources.
Current Prime Minister Harris confirmed the revocation and revealed during his wrap up of a  budget Debate that US Secretary of State John Kerry had written to Dr Douglas on several occasions expressing concern about how Dr Douglas’ administration was managing the CBI program. The warning went unheeded and resulted in a major fallout of the CBI programme and the relationship between the US and Canadian govts and the government of St.Kitts Nevis . The North American countries both issued scathing advisories regarding the Douglas administrations management of the CBI programme . So serious were the concerns the Canadian govt withdrew totally the visa free waiver that citizens of St.Kitts Nevis enjoyed for decades .

Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris along with Minister of Foreign Affairs Hon Mark Brantley has spearheaded the successful revival of the programme through the re-engagement if official talks and diplomatic discussions between SKN and Canadian and US Officials. The program was just recently relaunched and rebranded as the new Platinum Citizenship Programme in the world . The Team UNITY Government has resuscitated  the programme and it is  now once again among the leading If not the leading programme in the world .

    Shame on you to be carrying what is obviously a piece from a Team Unity government ragsheet. Why have you not touched Dr Timothy Harris’ entrapment in soliciting a bribe in which Asot Michael of Antigua is also caught in and resigned.Shame on you. Your paper has lost credibility.

    Wow, I am impressed. Is the story correct? Because I carried a story that seemingly offends you. Where do you get the authority to decide which story I carry and do not. You need to follow a bit more when you or anyone can decide for the whole region that TMR has lost credibility – oh! did you mean that there were some mistruths?
    Would have been good if you submitted some story or even directed me to something that would have suited your bias. All you have done and I thank you for noting that I did not source the story.
    You have a hard time finding my political bias.
    Send in your story.
