The Office of the Premier has noted with disgust the malicious and deceitful twitter handle, @Dbn_Survivors that alleges to expose perpetrators of Gender Based Violence through false claims; where the Premier, Dr. Zamani Saul, is also being implicated.  This comes at a time in our country when we are facing the scourge of violence against women and children. Dr Saul has always been an ardent advocate for the rights of women and more specific the rights of children and the disgusting allegations are dismissed with the urgency and contempt it deserves. We therefore firmly believe that this a lousy attempt to denigrate the integrity of the Premier.

The Premier has already referred the specific tweet and Twitter handle to the relevant law enforcement agencies for investigation and further action.  We remain resolute in our fight against gender based violence and such distractions will not deter us.
