UPP IN COLLUSION WITH CONVICTED INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS
St John’s, 18 March… The United Progressive Party (UPP) and its agents have been using convicted criminal and money launderers to spread false information about Prime Minister Gaston Browne and the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP).
Both convicted criminals are now notorious scammers who publish false information on Internet websites for hefty sums of money.
One of the scammers is Monte Friesner who was described by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as “a consummate fraud artist”. The case document is still on the Internet and it can be read at: https://law.justia.com/cas
Friesner is now a hired hand who sells himself and his website to anyone willing to pay him to spread propaganda. Having never written a single word about Antigua and Barbuda at any time in the past, Friesner has published 15 articles of unsubstantiated allegations about Prime Minister Browne and the Labour Party.
Further, evidence of Fiesner’s criminal background in Panama is also available on the Internet athttp://www.bananamarepublic.
He is described as a “serial swindler and career criminal”.
Friesner is a close associate of another convicted money launderer, Kenneth Rijock, who has also been hired to fabricate stories about the ABLP and Prime Minister Browne, to the extent of saying that the Prime Minister ordered the use of tear gas last Saturday against UPP supporters – something all persons in Antigua know to be untrue. Rijock’s criminal background can be seen on the Internet at: http://www.dailymail.co.u
The UPP has been reproducing stories by these two known criminals on their elections website and on Crusader Radio. The UPP criminal enterprise is real and is a threat to the safety and security of Antigua and Barbuda. (ends)
