(Dominica News Online) Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has condemned what he described as “violence and vandalism” which took place in Roseau on Tuesday night following a public meeting organized by opposition parties calling for the resignation of Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit.
On Wednesday morning Linton said the disturbances were “not about our meeting yesterday afternoon.”
“What happened last night had absolutely nothing to do with our meeting,” he said.
Linton claimed that he and his family were threatened on Tuesday night.
“There were messages on social media saying all sorts of things to me,” he stated. “All I have ever said was we wanted a peaceful engagement and we had a peaceful engagement and all of a sudden people who never had anything to say about anything wrong in this country, they found their voice of who should do what and who should have done what else.”
Linton, who was called back to the scene after the meeting was over, said he did his best and he continues to do his best.
“Our party is focused, notwithstanding all the criticism, the blamed being heaped on us,” he noted.
