US revokes visa of St Lucia minister?

St Lucian Prime Minister Stephenson King on Monday said he had asked the island’s diplomats in the United States to probe reports that Washington had revoked the visa of his Housing Minister Richard Frederick, according to the Caribbean Media Corporation.

CMC said that former government legislator Janine Compton-Antoine first broke the news that Washington had revoked Frederick’s visa.

“This being the case, the Prime Minister ought to have informed the country as to why the Minister’s visa was revoked,” said Compton-Antoine, who now sits as an independent legislator in the 17-member Parliament, told CMC.
