Employee questioned in connection with death threat against GM of state-owned media entity

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – An employee of the state-owned Antigua Broadcasting Service (ABS) has been taken in for questioning as lawmen continue their investigations into a death threat against General Manager Erna-Mae Braithwaite.

The employee, who has not been named, is said to be attached to the company’s library.

The individual was taken in earlier this afternoon to assist police with the ongoing investigation but has not been named as a suspect, arrested or charged.

The threat against Braithwaite was revealed on Friday after the company emptied its suggestions box.

The individual wrote in pencil that they want the GM to leave and threatened to kill her if she did not.

Braithwaite has been making changes at ABS that some staff members do not like. She has been the general manager since 2014.
