Dominicans must intervene in the fire bomb case of the home of Glenworth Emmanuel, former Prime Minister Edison James has said.
He believes police are not vigorously pursuing the case and “the people’s court” must address it.
He made the statement at a meeting of the Citizens Forum For Good Governance held on the weekend in Layou.
“We must understand that if we do not stand up and liberate ourselves then we are in serious trouble,” he said.
The home of Glenworth Emmanuel, a former magistrate, was allegedly firebombed early in the morning last Christmas Day. Emmanuel and his wife were in the house in St. Aroment during the incident, but were uninjured. The fire destroyed Emmanuel’s vehicle and certain sections of the house.
Police have been accused of doing little to arrest the perpetrators.
James said Dominicans must let their voices be heard on the incident.
“I am urging Q95 to set aside two or three days next week, or soon, so that the people can discuss this on matter for three days and bring all the different aspects to bear on this matter,” James proclaimed.
