The Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis, Dr Terrance Drew has refuted an attribute made about him in a paid press release that was disseminated on ‘Businesswire’ and other news websites across the world concerning Hamilton Reserve Bank. The misinformation quoted Prime Minister’s statement that he did not make, said St Kitts and Nevis PM office.
“It is highly improper for any company to pay for the international publishing of a quote which I did not make. The general public must know that I did not make any comment about Hamilton Reserve Bank publicly or privately, in Dubai or otherwise,” PM Drew asserted.
Authorities have confirmed that the event in Dubai was organised for CBI programme consultants and immigration agents, and no banking-related persons were invited. Following the investigation of this matter, it was revealed that two persons, Sheeba Radhakrishnan and Sandeep George are prime conspirators in defaming the government and had published a fake statement in their favour to benefit the bank by fabricating phoney trust.
It was also revealed that both Sheeba and Sandeep attended the event on the invitation of AAA Global Incorporation and Trust Inc., which is an authorised agent of St Kitts and Nevis CBI Programme. It is also suspected that the fraudulent banking is operated under the shadow of AAA Global Incorporation and Trust Inc. They both pretended to be citizenship agents to get their photograph with Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew and published it in a manipulated manner.
Apart from PM Office’s statement, a journalist from Associates Times was also present at the event for the coverage. It has been confirmed from videos and speech script of the Prime Minister that no such statement did mention Hamilton Reserve Bank or any of its associates.
Hamilton Reserve Bank did not respond to multiple emails for comments on the circulation of the press release using fake attributes of Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew.
Following the occurrence, it is expected that St Kitts and Nevis Embassy in UAE will reach out to the authorities and Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) for immediate action against Hamilton Reserve Bank and its relationship managers, who were spotted in the photograph.
