Controversy continues to follow Prime Minister Philip Davis following his admission that he broke quarantine in December. Now Former Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis says the prime minister should pay the fine.

 



Amid the fallout that came after the prime minister’s revelation that he broke quarantine, Former Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis says not only should the prime minister apologize to the nation, he should lead by example and pay the fine.

Health rules passed by the Davis administration last year state that breaking quarantine carries a fine of $500.

In December, the prime minister revealed he was in quarantine after his wife Ann Marie Davis and other family members tested positive for Covid-19.

While speaking at businessman Leon Griffin’s memorial last week, Davis admitted to breaking quarantine on December 23, to purchase gifts at a store owned by Griffin, who was later killed.

Minnis says while some are trying to spin a different narrative, there is no question that Davis knew he shouldn’t have been out.

We sought to find out from the prime minister if he intends to apologize. He offered no response.

On Tuesday, Health and Wellness Minister Dr. Michael Darville contradicted the PM’s version of events when he charged that Davis stopped at the store before his quarantine began. 

Today, he said he had no further comment on the matter.
