Grenada police have confirmed that the mother and brother of the Member of Parliament for Carriacou & Petite Martinique, Kindra Maturine-Stewart are now persons of interest in connection with a violent incident Tuesday on the sister isle.
A police official who spoke to THE NEW TODAY on condition that he was not identified said that the two are key persons in the ongoing investigation into the incident which is only four hours old.
He said a team of police officers were dispatched to Top Hill where the incident happened.
There are reports that one of the injured persons is the father of Minister Stewart-Maturine and the other is his Barbadian-born wife.
Speculation is rife that the incident is family-related between the minister’s mother who is divorced from her father who has since remarried.
According to the police official, he did not want to give too much details out at the moment as the investigation is at an early stage.
THE NEW TODAY was told that a dog belonging to the mother of the female government minister was also used to attack and bite her father and his current wife.
The initial report said that the mother and brother of the MP who is also the Minister of Legal Affairs are now under investigation for “the beating of the next door neighbours”.
“The next door neighbours are presently at the Princess Alice Hospital in Carriacou undergoing treatment,” the report said.
The senior government minister could not be reached for comment on the issue involving her mother, brother, father and his Bajan wife.
During the lead up to the 2018 general election, there was a public spat between the minister and her father following her claims that he never assisted her financially.
The father hit back by releasing documents concerning financial contributions that he had made to Minister Maturine-Stewart.
