It appears that the community of Marigot is not letting go, the matter of the dismissal of Vescort Jones from his post as a security officer at the Douglas-Charles Airport in December 2014.
Jones was allegedly dismissed from his post after he reportedly allowed Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, to dispose of crab backs that he intended to travel with but did not have the required permit to do so.
Members of the community decided to present a petition to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Dominica Air and Sea Port Authority (DASPA), Benoit Bardouille, on the matter on Monday morning.
Since the incident, Linton has been very vocal saying Jones was a victim of political injustice.
The UWP leader said there is no reason that the fired security officer should not be at work.
He stated that the matter will be taken to “a fair, logical conclusion.”
“We want justice for Vescott Jones, because Vescott Jones is the victim of a savage injustice, perpetrated by Benoit Bardouille on behalf of his political masters. It is not right and we must correct things that are not right,” Linton pointed out.
But Bardouille doesn’t understand why the community of Marigot wants to deal with a matter which he said has to do with “industrial relations.”
“Why would they want to come outside of the place of business? To what end would it serve?” he stated. “It’s an industrial relations practice. Why would the community of Marigot want to deal with an industrial relations matter outside of the practice that is laid down and the law that is being laid down to deal with the matter?”
