Bahamas: STEP DOWN, SIR: DNA leader calls for resignation of national security minister amid accusations

NASSAU, BAHAMAS —Democratic National Alliance (DNA) Leader Arinthia Komolafe yesterday called for the resignation of Minister of National Security Marvin Dames over recent comments accusing the political party of injuring police officers.

Komolafe and others were last week detained and questioned for over five hours at the Central Police Station in relation to a demonstration on March 3, during which the police commissioner said the group “forcibly sought to gain their way into the Parliament”.

National Security Minister Marvin Dames recently told the media the DNA tried to overrun Parliament while officers suffered injuries in their demonstration.

In an interview with Eyewitness News, Komolafe slammed those comments as “very dishonorable” and said the DNA is calling for Dames to not only apologize but also retract the statements he made about the party.

“Barring him doing that, then Dr Minnis, the most honorable prime minister of this country, must call for his resignation or Mr Dames should do the honorable thing and step down,” she said.
