johnny_briceno_pupBy Aaron Humes: The People’s United Party (PUP) cancelled its planned educational trip to the Sarstoon River for party leaders that was scheduled for today.

According to PUP insiders, they were unable to guarantee the boat owners that they had contracted to take them to the area that they would not be victimized by the ruling government.

Speaking with us this morning, party chairman Henry Charles Usher laid direct blame at the feet of the Government for threatening the livelihoods of any operators who assisted the PUP in today’s planned exercise.

Usher also told us that the party may likely continue with its constitutional challenge to the Public Safety Act Regulations Sarstoon Order, 2016, after the first hearing was adjourned on Friday at the Supreme Court.

The Party is planning to meet to discuss its further options.
