The United National Congress has thrown its full support behind Member of Parliament David Lee, who was on Friday charged for misbehaviour in public office, conspiracy to defraud.
In a statement issued by the Opposition, it said the party is aware of what it deemed spurious and trumped up charges concerning the MP David, adding that it is a deliberate and calculated move.
Mr Lee also issued a personal statement on Saturday saying the allegations against him are false.
On Friday, Mr. Lee, the member of Parliament for Pointe-a-Pierre was detained and brought before a justice of the peace, and charged.
He was released after being given one million dollars bail.
The charges are said to be in connection with the purchase of a $2.3 million Mercedes-Benz and whether the $1.4 million in tax exemptions derived may have benefited a party financier.
