Political Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton says he condemns all forms of violence, vandalism and disruption of lives.
Linton’s remarks come in light of a suspected arson which destroyed a communicaton tower servicing the Douglas-Charles Airport.
Speaking at press conference at the Prevost Cinemal on Thursday morning, Linton said the incident is of grave concern to the UWP.
“There are a couple of matters that have surfaced in recent times that is of grave concern to us,” he said. “We don’t know what exactly what has happened, we are hearing opinions from the government side and their suggestions of arson. We would want to await the results of a complete investigation by the authorities before we address this matter in a more comprehensive way.”
He said the UWP will not stand any form of violence and vandalism
“We do not stand for violence, we do not stand for the destruction of property, or for the disruption of lives in any way shape or form,” he stated. “And to the extent that this development could have been an act of vandalism, or any other such thing, we totally and absolutely condemn it without reservation.”
Reports indicate a communication tower was destroyed. Cost stands at $2-million.
