Police reportedly called in to escort former PS from Tourism Ministry
Police were reportedly called in on Monday morning to escort former Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Karen VanSluytman- Corbin from the Ministry.
In a live video on social media, the woman told the media that she visited the office to uplift her belongings but she was locked out.
“I came this morning to retrieve my personal belongings that I have in my office and observed the locks have been changed so I have not been able to access the office,” the former PS said.
VanSluytman- Corbin was reassigned to the post of Chief Administrative Officer within the Ministry.
She said efforts to meet with Minister Oniedge Walrond proved futile.
The former PS said she is unsure why the police were summoned as she did not behave disorderly.
“I do not know why because I was not behaving hostile, threatening or in any manner that would warrant the police coming to get me out of here,” she noted.
The Government has since appointed Sharon Roopchand-Edwards as the new Permanent Secretary at the Ministry.
Efforts to contact Minister Walrond for a comment proved futile.
