Former and current male senators aligned to the People’s National Party (PNP) have joined the call for Senator Kamina Johnson Smith to produce the harassing emails she alleges were sent to her by a member of the Opposition and which sparked a police probe.
Johnson Smith, who is leader of government business in the Senate, did not name her alleged harasser when she made the disclosure during last Friday’s sitting of the Upper House or give the timeline.
She disclosed that she was advised to stop running by the police, who felt that it would be justifiable for her to press charges. However, she did not proceed with the matter which dates back more than six years ago.
Among those calling for Johnson Smith to produce the evidence is PNP Senator Damion Crawford.
“If it is true, she has a duty to the nation to highlight it and I think she also has a duty to the Parliament to highlight it, and if it is not true, she would have done a great disservice to women generally,” he said.
