In light of Tony Astaphan’s concern about “outrageous and highly irresponsible” inferences, implications,  and “incendiary allegations without the slightest proof”, I reproduce below a September 2007 transcript of a breaking news item reported to DBS News by Tony Astaphan via telephone from St Vincent.



September 12, 2007


NEWSCASTER EDWARD REGISTE: Senior counsel Tony Astaphan is raising concern over an incident where it is reported that the home of attorney at law Stephen Isidore was broken into last night and his computer stolen. Mr Isidore had prepared land transfers on behalf of the Prime Minister.  Mr. Astaphan views the incident as a striking coincidence in relation to the on-going allegations being made against the Prime Minister.


ANTHONY ASTAPHAN: Last night I received a telephone call from Mr. Stephen Isidore everyone knows he is the attorney at law who prepared the transfers for the Honourable Prime Minister. He indicated to me that on his return from his tribunal hearing his house was broken into and the substantial item stolen was his computer. Money was not stolen… some other items he had in the house were not stolen… the substantial item stolen was his computer. In the midst of the highly partisan attempts to assassinate the prime ministers reputation by certain sectors of the media… that has to strike any rational human being as a striking coincidence. Why amidst all of this turbulence being generated by persons with their own selfish and political agendas is a computer of the attorney at law who prepared the transfers for the Prime Minister stolen? That striking coincidence sends a dangerous sign that if the coincidence has any merit or any link or any substance it means that persons who are willing to see the destruction of the Prime Minister’s reputation, will go by any means necessary, including criminal, to see if they can find any dirt on him.


NEWSCASTER EDWARD REGISTE: Mr Astaphan also fears that his offices along with those of other attorneys associated with the Prime Minister could be subjects to similar incidents:


ANTHONY ASTAPHAN: I think it also sends a warning to the Prime Minister, to Mr. Alick Lawrence and myself and those of us who work with the Prime Minister, that maybe we too… our property and our offices too may be violated in a desperate attempt to try to besmirch and to dirty and to violate the reputation of the Prime Minister… And I think that is dangerous but striking coincidence.


NEWSCASTER EDWARD REGISTE: That was Senior Counsel Tony Astaphan.
