Jamaica: Full Text | Dayton Campbell strongly rejects sexual assault claims

People’s National Party (PNP) General Secretary Dr Dayton Campbell is strongly rejecting new allegations against him regarding sexual misconduct.

In a statement this afternoon, Campbell described the claims as baseless and scurrilous and accused PNP activist Karen Cross of being part of what he called a well-funded political agenda with the objective of forcing him out of office.

Cross along with bloggers Natalee Stack and Michelle Stern are the subjects of a defamation lawsuit filed by Campbell.

He has accused Cross and the other defendants of writing malicious, false, and defamatory comments on social media alleging that he had sex with girls who were under 16 years old.

In her defence filed in May, Cross submitted statements from three females who are alleging that they had sexual relations with Campbell when they were minors.

But Campbell is maintaining his innocence and is denying the claims.
