(Dominica News Online) Foreign Minister, Francine Baron, has written to talk show hosts Matt Peltier and Angelo Alleyne, as well as Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton for reportedly ‘defaming her character’ in relations to US$10,000 she received in Malaysia while she was Dominica’s High Commissioner in London.
She is also demanding US$10,000 from each of the three in the matter, which will go to a charity of her choice.
“I have today issued a letter to Lennox Linton, Matt Peltier, Angelo Alleyne, and West Indies Communications Enterprise the owners of Q95 where I have demanded an apology from them for defaming my character,” Baron said on Tuesday. “I am of the view also that I am entitled to significant damages for this sustained campaign, much more than Checko was recently ordered to pay, but I do not want one black cent from them, instead I have asked them to pay the same USD10,000 that they were so concerned about, to a Dominican Charity of my choice.”
She said over the past months, she has been the target of a sustained campaign by Peltier, Alleyne and Linton and others, aided and abetted by Q95 to damage her reputation.
