The Dominica Association of Industry & Commerce throws its full support behind the call of the DHTA for an action plan and a progressive policy against crime in Dominica.
The recent homicide and vicious beatings which took place over the weekend at Hatton Garden has to raise the level of intolerance for crime against persons and businesses.
President of the DAIC, Genevieve Astaphan, said, “…… crime, especially something so brutal, is just bad for the country as a whole and we do need to speak out.”
In throwing the DAIC’s full support behind the sentiments of the DHTA, DAIC CEO, Achille Chris Joseph explained, “There is now a critical need for an alliance against crime; an alliance which will make crime increasingly obnoxious; an alliance of public, private and civil interests which will result in zero tolerance for criminal behavior. It is not business-as-usual when a peaceful country like Dominica wakes up to news of a homicide”
The private sector body therefore stands ready to contribute to an action plan or review of current policies which will safeguard our collective protection and contribute to our economic and social values.
