Controversial People’s National Party (PNP) activist Karen Cross has been expelled from the 83-year-old party.
According to a media release from the PNP, the decision was made on Monday (September 27) to expel Cross from the party.
During the meeting, the party’s executive committee discussed a disciplinary report sent from the party’s disciplinary committee about Cross’s actions.
“Having received and considered the report of the Disciplinary Committee and in accordance with section 260 of the Party’s Constitution, expelled Karen Cross from the Party with immediate effect,” read the release.
Cross has not failed to keep herself in the media and on the tongues of PNP supports in an ongoing protest against party president Mark Golding and who she calls his ‘yesmen’.
In April 2021, Cross accused PNP General Secretary, Dr. Dayton Campbell of carnal abuse, with allegations that he had sexual relations with several underage girls.
“This, what is taking place, is malicious and politically motivated,” Campbell said in response to the allegations made by Cross.
Dr. Campbell obtained an injunction against Cross and PNP blogger, Natalee Stack to stop them from repeating defamatory statements pending the hearing of the sexual abuse case.
Cross and Stack were found in contempt of court and subsequently ordered to pay $750,000 or face six months of prison time.
And just last week, on Thursday (September 23), Cross led a march on the party’s headquarters on Old Hope Road, St. Andrew demanding the resignation of Mark Golding, Dayton Campbell, Senator Peter Bunting and incoming Vice President Ian Hayles.
