The Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association (DHTA) on Tuesday called for an urgent action plan against crime here, while denouncing the killing of foreigner Joe Costello.
Simon Walsh, the DHTA President, has described the incident that took place last Sunday, as a crime against society. “It is now time for the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force, the Ministry of Tourism, the Discover Dominica Authority, the DHTA and all private sector stakeholders to develop an urgent action plan to prevent further crimes here in Dominica,” he said.
Walsh labeled the incident as “terrible,” however, he underscored that Dominica is very peaceful.
“Most of us in Dominica are blessed to live in relative safety and security as perhaps the victims of this crime did until just recently,” Walsh stated.
