The?Nation?Publishing Company is at the centre of another police investigation.
Yesterday, Opposition Leader Mia Mottley and two other Barbados Labour Party members of Parliament said police interviewed them about a NATION article published on July 17 on an Opposition walkout of the House of Assembly.
Shadow attorney general Dale Marshall, speaking after the meeting with Inspector Lionel Ward at District “A”, indicated that charges were being contemplated against the newspaper and reporter Barry Alleyne for an alleged breach of parliamentary rules in relation to statements published against the Speaker of the House Michael Carrington in the article.
Marshall told reporters that acting on advice from their attorneys, Queen’s Counsels Ralph Thorne and Andrew Pilgrim, they had each presented the police with a written response declining to make any statements in relation to the matter being investigated.
