Government of Dominica statement on assassination of former prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe

Roseau Dominica: It is with deep shock and profound sadness that the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica has learned of the despicable assassination of the former and longest-serving Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, at a gathering which took place in Nara, Japan on July 8, 2022.

The Government of Dominica vehemently condemns this act of unbridled violence and calls on the relevant authorities to see that the perpetrators are apprehended and brought to justice.

Shinzo Abe was indeed an exceptional statesman and visionary global leader. He will long be remembered for his unwavering dedication to the well-being of his people and country, as well as his efforts in the promotion of peace and understanding among nations.

Shinzo Abe was also a great friend of Dominica, under whose leadership Dominica-Japan relations were significantly strengthened.

The Government and People of the Commonwealth of Dominica extend heartfelt condolences to his family and the Government and the People of Japan during this time of irreparable loss.

    What government? All you giving people the impression that the corrupt cabal of paid ministers is a real government.
    On another note: if certain people around the world could find a way to bring down the person the that murdered the former Japanese PM to take care of the opposition in their country these damn hypocrites would gladly do it
