(Dominica News Online) Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has thrown out a challenge to Foreign Affairs Minister, Francine Baron to come up with the specific statements that he made against with which she is taking issue.
On Tuesday Baron wrote to Linton and two Dominican journalists demanding an apology and compensation for reportedly ‘defaming her character’ in relation to US$10,ooo she received in Malaysia while she was Dominica’s High Commissioner in London.
She said over the past months, she has been under a sustained attack on allegations that after she received the money, she misappropriated it for her own use.
But Linton is challenging Baron to come up with the exact statements that he has made in the matter, adding that she just cannot manufacture allegations.
“You are challenged now because your challenge is to come up with the statement that Lennox Linton has made that you taking issue with,” he said in a Facebook live statement on Tuesday evening. “You are not allowed in our court system to talk about allegations without being able to specifically put on the record the actual words that you are complaining about.”
He said one cannot manufacture allegations then say what those allegations mean.
