Thompson Fontaine, who is presently facing a lawsuit from the legal team of Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, said all he wants is his day in court.
Speaking on Q95’s Matt in the Morning, Fontaine said he will not retract nor will he issue any apologies for what he said concerning the sale of Dominica’s passports.
“I want my day in court,” he said. “I will not retract, I will not keep quiet because what I have written is the truth.”
The prime minister’s legal team has demanded that Fontaine pay $250,000 in compensation and has given him 14 days to retract the allegations and apologize. The team said the government believes Fontaine is the source of claims that PM Skerrit was involved in the sale of a Dominican passport to Darwood Ibrahim, a notorious Indian national.
Thompson said he received a notification from attorney-at-law Lennox Lawrence, who wrote on the behalf of the prime minister, yesterday but considered it a ‘waste of time.’
“I will not in anyway respond, don’t expect me to respond, take me to court,” he stated. “I am anxious to go to court.”
