Moses Shyne Barrow – he is the son of the Prime Minister and stepson to the Special Envoy for Women and Children. Despite his connections to those in high places, Barrow found himself in a scandal surrounding a domestic dispute with his wife, Catherine. His wife reported the matter to the police saying that Shyne kicked her from behind causing her to slam against a wall. Her injuries were classified as harm, but hours later the wife retracted her report, and that was the end of that, in public, at least. Patrick Faber who too has been embroiled in domestic turbulence told the media that he has since spoken to Shyne.
Patrick Faber, Leader Elect, United Democratic Party: “Shyne’s situation is unfortunate but we’ve seen what has happened in that case. I am not one to judge him but I will say this that for me and for our UDP we don’t condone any kind of violence against anybody and we make that plain for the record and we also say that if any situations arise where we have to make a decision that will of course lean on the side of those who are victims of such violence that the decision will be made in that regard but we don’t think that that is the situation now given what has happened.”
Reporter: As the party leader elect have you met with him ? Have you have any discussion with him over it ?
Patrick Faber, Leader Elect, United Democratic Party: “I spoke to him briefly to hear what he was saying, what was his version of the events and that was whenever day it may have been Sunday or Monday morning but that was the extent of it, no detailed discussion.”
