The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is not throwing its former Member of Parliament Donville Inniss to the wayside just yet.

New party president Verla De Peiza is reminding the public that Inniss has done nothing wrong unless proven otherwise.

“His matter is still sub judice,” she declared while answering a question about the embattled Innissat a St James South branch meeting last night.

“It has not been yet been ventilated by any court I am aware of, and up until such time that happens, he remains in my eyes, in the party’s eyes, and should also in the public’s eye, be innocent until proven guilty,”De Peiza, an attorney of 20 years’ experience, added. (AD)
