Deputy Leader of the Concerned Citizens Movement, Mark Brantley speaking on radio earlier this week issued the caution and urged the general public to continue to do what is right.
He added that when one practices wrong, one may feel powerful for a time, but ultimately the bad deeds are going to catch up with them. The Deputy Leader was speaking in relation to reports that Registration Officer, at the Electoral Office in Nevis, Bernadette Lawrence had resigned.
“Information reaching me from several different sources today confirms that Bernadette Lawrence is no more as Registration Officer but that she tendered her resignation effective Monday 12 September, 2012,” Brantley claimed.
He added that if one takes example from what happened to Lawrence and former Supervisor of Elections Leroy Benjamin, they would refrain from participating in illegal activities which can lead them to prison.
He said, “All of us have sinned and fallen short but if we try to do what is right we will be better off.”
“Do not allow yourselves to be corrupted for anybody because when push comes to shove you would realise that those who were cheering you on and meeting with you in the dead of the night and encouraging you to do what was wrong they are not there,” he added.
Her resignation has not been confirmed by government as yet but the reports follow the resignation of the Supervisor of Elections Leroy Benjamin on 31st August, 2012. Other sources have claimed that Lawrence has confirmed the rumours of her resignation.
Brantley also claimed that Joseph Parry and Hensley Daniel have asked the court to forgive them from paying costs, associated with the recent Court of Appeals case that upheld a lower court decision to declare the 2012 election in Constituency #2 Nevis, to be null and void.
