Commissioner John refutes “The New Today Newspaper” news article

RELEASE: Commissioner of Police of the Royal SVG Police Force (RSVGPF), Mr. Colin John has refuted the contents of a news article posted on social media on Sunday April 19, 2020 by “The New Today Newspaper”.

The article which was headlined “Grenada Coast Guard intercepts boat from SVG with food supplies for Petite Martinique” reported that a Grenadian Coast Guard vessel “turned back a boat from St. Vincent bringing supplies of food and cooking gas to the people of Petite Martinique”.

On Monday April 20, 2020, Commissioner John held talks with his Grenadian counterpart, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Edwin Martin and Mr. Brenton Cain, Commander of SVG Coast Guard on the matter at hand.

Commissioner John would therefore like to inform the general public that according to all available information and intelligence, no such incident has occurred.
