Peter Virdee does not hold a St. Kitts and Nevis passport, diplomatic or otherwise 

From the Office of the Prime Minister 

Exhaustive checks conducted both domestically and internationally for Peter Virdee or any other permutation of his name have found NOTHING IN THE RECORDS to indicate that he holds a passport of any kind issued by the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis.

The Ministry of National Security and the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) conducted the checks locally. The international checks were conducted by the Canadian Bank Note Company (CBN) upon the request of the permanent secretary in the Ministry of National Security. CBN determined that Peter Virdee DOES NOT hold a St. Kitts and Nevis passport of any kind.

CBN is the sole authorized agent for the production and provision of St. Kitts and Nevis passports.

The Canadian Bank Note Company has advised the permanent secretary in the Ministry of National Security with confidence that “We DID NOT see any results in the ePassport Production Database.”

The government of St. Kitts and Nevis therefore categorically states that the spurious allegation being bandied about by mischief-makers should be discounted as a diversionary tactic to distract the public from the news involving a real diplomatic passport held by the leader of the Opposition.
