Nassau, The Bahamas – In direct response to the sensational headlines in two local newspapers, former Minister of Agriculture and Local Government and PLP MP for MICAL, the Hon. V. Alfred Gray retained the law firm of Gwendolyn House to represent him. The following is a statement from the firm regarding the filing of two writs. Mr. Gray will be represented by Attorney Fred Mitchell, who is also the MP for Fox Hill and former Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Public Service.
Statement from Gwendolyn House on Behalf of Alfred Gray
Yesterday 3rd January, two writs of summons generally endorsed were filed in the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas on behalf of Alfred Gray, the Member of Parliament for the Mayaguana, Inagua, Crooked Island, Acklins and Long Cay (MICAL) seat in the House of Assembly. The writ comes a result of certain allegations made Mr. Gray asserts are false, misleading, defamatory and injurious to his reputation as a Member of Parliament and as a Counsel and Attorney of the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
It is again incumbent upon the press to understand that in playing its needed role in society it ought to refrain from repeating salacious and unchecked allegations which injure the reputation of individuals in the eyes of right thinking members of society. It is now for the courts to adjudicate these matters.
PRESS STATEMENT BY: V. ALFRED GRAY
Today I have taken the necessary legal steps in the Supreme Court, which I fully expect will clear my name, from the vicious allegations, made against me recently in the
media. I am certain, that my enemies have brought me to it, but God will take me through it. This is my final statement on this matter and I will now allow the legal process to take its course.
