(Antigua Observer) Prime Minister Gaston Browne has promised to “resign forthwith”, if those who allege that his wife’s charity benefitted from public funds provide the evidence to prove this.
“Evidence of even one cent,” he told the Parliament on Friday.
In February, the government said it would pump more money into the controversial Venture Capital Fund in which Maria Browne would play a key role through her charity, Share Incorporated.
The funds were to be increased from $2 million to $5 million due to the overwhelming interest of young entrepreneurs.
Political pundits and groups have cried impropriety but speaking in Parliament on Thursday, the prime minister said he was fed up with operatives on the opposition-aligned Crusader Radio and OBSERVER Radio making the untrue claim.
