Fuad Abu Bakr.

Fuad Abu Bakr can no longer speak on behalf of the organisation that his father leads.

The son of Imam Yasin Abu Bakr has been removed as the public relations officer of the Jamaat al Muslimeen with immediate effect.

A statement from the religious body yesterday did not offer a reason for Fuad being removed but it stated clearly that he no longer speaks on behalf of the organisation.

The imam’s former bodyguard Lorris Ballack has been appointed as the new PRO.

Over the last few weeks, Fuad has alleged that the People’s National Movement (PNM) invited him to be part of the party’s election line up and that the Jamaat was asked to assist with campaigning, which the prime minister has vehemently denied.

Fuad also recently accused his father of pandering to the prime minister and not being fully honest about the nature of their discussions.
