Police called to incident in House of Assembly

December 7, 2014 - Author: bdadmin

What is happening in this little island paradise?  The politicians now seem to be attacking each others’ family members in Session.

Marc Bean PLP Leader

Bernews says:

Numerous unofficial reports are indicating that there was some form of an incident last night [Dec 5] in the House of Assembly, with a very heated incident said to have occurred involving MPs from both sides of the aisle, with sources indicating that it culminated with the police being contacted…

The OBA said that Friday’s sitting of the House of Assembly was “brought into disrepute once again by the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Marc Bean.”

The statement from the OBA alleged that Mr. Bean made remarks they termed “outrageous”, “inflammatory” and “derogatory” about the “wife of a One Bermuda Alliance MP who was sitting in the Visitor’s Gallery.”

“Outside the building, after the House sitting was ended, words were exchanged. We have since learned that MP Zane DeSilva filed a complaint with Police about that incident, and on that point we note only that the on-duty Police officer who was present did not intervene,” the OBA said.

“Mr. Bean’s inflammatory words distracted from what was a very productive day during which legislation allowing for the use of cannabis-derived medicines was passed, progress at Morgan’s Point was announced, the economic impact of the America’s Cup was outlined and Government, after amending a Bill put forward by MP Walton Brown, voted to give the Premier of Bermuda the authority to appoint a Commission of Inquiry.”

“Mr. Bean’s outrageous words during Friday’s sitting are part of a pattern of disturbing behaviour that has made it difficult for goodwill to be the currency of the legislature,” the OBA said, going on to reference the incident last month at the polling station.

“For the sake of upholding standards of decency and decorum in our public life, we urge members of the Opposition to speak with their leader about maintaining standards of behaviour that befit his important responsibility as Leader of the Opposition and as a role model for all Bermudians,” the OBA added.

A PLP spokesperson said, “‎Following events that occurred after yesterday’s sitting of the House of Assembly, MP Zane DeSilva has filed a complaint for threatening behaviour with the Bermuda Police Service. No further comment will be forthcoming from the PLP as this matter currently lies with the the Police.”

A PLP spokesperson said, “‎Following events that occurred after yesterday’s sitting of the House of Assembly, MP Zane DeSilva has filed a complaint for threatening behaviour with the Bermuda Police Service. No further comment will be forthcoming from the PLP as this matter currently lies with the the Police.”

One comment on the Bernews site from “Not impressed”  says:

“This is why some of our youth behave how they do, unbelievable.”

As reported by Mr Bell and Ms Lagan in The Royal Gazette:

Progressive Labour Party MP Zane DeSilva has filed a complaint to Police over threatening behaviour that allegedly took place during an altercation between MPs after the evening session of Parliament last night.

The PLP issued a statement saying: “Following events that occurred after yesterday’s sitting of the House of Assembly, MP Zane DeSilva has filed a complaint for threatening behaviour with the Bermuda Police Service. No further comment will be forthcoming from the PLP, as this matter lies with the police.”

It is understood that there was a heated exchange between One Bermuda Alliance MP Sylvan Richards and Marc Bean, the Opposition leader, which also involved Mr DeSilva and Mr Richards’s wife, Yahaira.

In the aftermath, several MPs are believed to have made their way to Hamilton Police Station, where a complaint was filed.

Mr. Horton represented Bermuda internationally in both sports.

Randy Horton, Speaker of the House, had threatened to dismiss MPs earlier in last night’s session for unparliamentary remarks on both sides of the House.

A comment from “Robert Thomas” on the Royal Gazette site reads:

“This Government will bring Bermuda back to prosperity, all the celebrations that are going on right now with the America’s Cup and hotel developments have made individuals within the PLP feel very uncomfortable, I can see it in their body language and speech. Very sad indeed to watch these individuals revert to name calling and distractions, very sad that they show no excitement for Bermuda whatsoever.
Party and $elf first……….Bermuda and Bermudians last.”

Let’s just hope that the people on the hill can, eventually, put aside all personal differences and work together to put Bermuda back on track economically and socially.  The people of Bermuda need and deserve it!
