Questioning Of GUT President

PR – The President of the Grenada Union of Teachers, Mr. Jude Bartholomew, was questioned at the St. David’s Police Station on Saturday April 24, 2021, by officers of the Criminal Investigations Department in relation to an ongoing investigation regarding possible violations of the Emergency Powers Act and breaches of the Covid-19 protocols.

Mr. Bartholomew was visited at his home by the police, who requested that he attend at the CID, St. George’s. However, based on a request made by him regarding his family, he was facilitated at the St. David’s Police Station where he attended voluntarily and at his convenience. He was never detained and was told that he was free to leave at any time.

He was questioned for just over two hours without charge and was allowed to leave at the conclusion pending further investigations.
