Spencer, Skerrit voice support for Golding as Caricom chairman

Jamaica's Prime Minister Bruce Golding

MONTEGO BAY, St James — Prime Minister of Dominica, and outgoing chairman of Caribbean Community (Caricom) Roosevelt Skerrit has thrown his support behind Jamaica’s Prime Minister Bruce Golding’s new crime-fighting initiatives as well as his chairmanship of the regional body.

In fact, Skerrit wants Golding to spearhead a similar programme at the regional level.

“Dominica, all of us have no objection to Prime Minister Golding leading Caricom at this time. What he is doing in Jamaica is something that is supported in terms of fighting criminals, and all of us heads of government and citizens of the region must play our part because crime is a societal problem and not a governmental problem,” Skerrit said.

“We all must play our part in fighting crime, and we are happy also that he has taken over the chairmanship of Caricom. So at the regional level he can also push forward that particular agenda, which is needed also in our islands,” Skerrit added.

    Are we reading this correctly????

    Is this the voice of Dominicans?

    Has he read the news about the Jamaican prime minister’s protection and preventing extradition orders?
    Are we sanctioning the support of such?

    Then again was there a declaration of the source of the millions of $ spent on election and buy election campaigns? How much does it cost to Charter flights, jets flights?????

    is the money lundering law only for some?
