Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves through his lawyers has issued the requisite legal documents to BDS or Nice Radio.
Gonsalves said the letter is concerning a defamation which was on the airwaves around April 13th 2018.
Gonsalves through his Lawyers is demanding EC 300,000 dollars in damages.
The legal problems have arisen after a caller to the NDP New Times program alleges that this country’s Prime Minister and his son Finance Minister Camilo Gonsalves, have Millions of US Dollars in a Swiss bank account.
During the exchange, Colin Graham host of the program asked the caller whether or not they had proof of such, to which the caller replied: “you will know in time”.
“There is a document out in Canada, a paper that has been published with an account of several ministers of the Unity Labour Party of SVG”, the caller went on to state.
Graham further asked the caller when was the document released, and who was responsible for releasing it.
The caller said they had no knowledge of who released the document; however, they believe it was part of the Panama Papers.
The Panama Papers are an unprecedented leak of 11.5m files from the database of the world’s fourth-biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca.
“I have been in and out of the country and the lawyers wanted to make sure I was on the ground when the letter is served,” Gonsalves said.
In the exchange the caller went on to state, “There are questions that need answers, this is an indictment, the document cannot lie, and SVG is in a serious predicament, where the Gonsalves family is fattening their ass off the backs of Vincentians”.
Prime Minister Gonsalves on April 25th said he had instructed his lawyers to look into the matter immediately and at that time indicated he had every intention to take legal action.
