Ashni Singh declines comment on accident
Finance Minister Dr Ashni Singh last evening declined to comment on an accident he was involved in on Sunday which has raised questions about his conduct at the scene and why the police seemed to have taken no interest in the matter.
The accident at Delph Avenue and Garnett Street left two occupants of the other vehicle slightly injured. The two have told the media that Singh appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and left the scene of the accident without rendering assistance to them and before the police took charge of the matter. When Singh was approached last evening at Parliament by Stabroek News he declined comment on the accident.
Yesterday, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) stated that the rule of law has to be applicable to all and Singh and the police were under scrutiny.
Executive member of APNU, Joseph Harmon, stated that “we will have to see if in fact the police will institute charges against him for either dangerous driving, reckless driving or driving under the influence of alcohol.”
