The San Fernando headquarters of the Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) was broken into over the weekend.
It was discovered that the building was broken into on Sunday, when MSJ president David Abdulah, chairman Gregory Fernandez and local government candidate Kizzy Monsegue arrived at the Lord Street office for their 1.30 press conference.
Abdulah, who spoke briefly with Loop News said it was unclear why the office was broken into so he would not want to make any pronouncement on the matter until the police have information.
Asked whether he believed there was any political factor involved in the incident, the MSJ leader said he would not want to cast any aspersions on his political opponents.
“We cannot say that this was directly related to the upcoming local government election. Chances are this could just be a regular burglary. An addict could have come in looking for something.”
“We won’t say anything more until we know what happened,” he added.
Abdulah said the party was still making checks to determine what had been taken from the office.
The intruder gained entrance through a window sometime overnight on Saturday.
There have so far been no arrests.
