Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves says he will be taking legal action against political activist, Luzette King, following recent accusations she made against him.

Speaking recently on a programme aired on Nice Radio, Ms. King alleged that Prime Minister Gonsalves had instructed police officers to use tear gas on New Democratic Party (NDP) supporters who were protesting near the Electoral Office on Bay Street in Kingstown, last week.

But, Dr. Gonsalves denied the accusation when he called in on a radio programmed hosted on Star FM yesterday morning.

The Prime Minister said that following the accusation made by Ms. King, he inquired of the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Michael Charles if the police who responded to the protest last Thursday, had tear gas in their possession, and the Police Commissioner said “No”.
