Mr. Scarborough’s statements were made on the evening of Saturday, 21st May, 2011, during a public meeting which the CCM held at Church Ground. According to MiyVue.com’s understanding, the comments suggested that Justice Redhead had been colluding in an attempt to defraud the electoral system. Other comments, this publication understands, suggested that His Lordship was involved in meetings with top officials of the NRP with a view to drafting one-sided or outcomes at the court.
In an address to the people of Nevis, aired on VON Radio (23rd May), Scarborough expressed that he, “made mention that several persons namely Lyra Richards, Rawle Isaac, Roosevelt David and Earl Sargeant have met privately with resident High Court Judge His Lordship Albert Redhead. My comments were such that some have construed them to mean that there was something sinister or improper about any such meeting or meetings. I deeply regret having made such comments and wish to apologize publicly and unreservedly to Ms. Richards, Mr. Isaac, Mr. David, Mr. Sargeant and His Lordship Justice Redhead for doing so.
“I have consulted widely with my colleagues in the Concerned Citizens Movement and I wish to make it clear that the comments were not approved by the Party nor are they representative of the views of the Party. The comments were made by me in the heat of the political platform and were completely without justification. I accept full responsibility for the comments and accept that they were wrong. I therefore tender my unreserved and sincerest apologies to those whom my comments would have affected and pledge never to repeat such comments. I have opted voluntarily to tender this public apology and to do so on VON radio so that its contents may be disseminated far and wide.
