Former Attorney General Bernard Wiltshire claims that Dominica needs a new administration to safeguard the country, because the current regime is no longer legitimate
Former Attorney General Bernard Wiltshire claims that Dominica needs a new administration to safeguard the country because the current regime is no longer legitimate. He is concerned as to whether the Dominican people are in favor of the mass creation of new citizens that might overwhelm the number of natural born citizens.
He continued by pointing out that the Montreal Management Company has been given illegal power to the housing program, which doesn't even account for its budget to parliament. Wiltshire added that if we do not stop this, the sale of passports will cause us to lose our nation, and our descendants will be deprived of their birthrights.
Wiltshire is pleading with all Dominicans to be open-minded and see what the program is really all about. He emphasized how the country is being sold right in front of our eyes, and no one is keeping track of how the money is being spent. He contends that it creates concerns for our personal security, as well as the security of our nation and its citizens.

DPSU Secretary General Thomas Letang suggests the details of a contract must be easily understood, and if someone is unsure of the terms therein, they should speak to a lawyer or a union
DPSU General Secretary Thomas Letang asserts that too often employment contracts outline the employee's responsibilities but not those of the employer. He pointed out that standard contracts are provided to employees in government services, and these contracts specify that the person is expected to abide by financial instructions and other rules. This is different from the private sector, though. He expounds on the details of what a contract is supposed to entail.
He stated that an employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee that outlines the rights, obligations, and duties referred to as the contract's terms. Any question of remuneration should be clarified in the contract, which includes specific terms. However, if someone is unsure of these terminologies or is having trouble understanding their contract, they should speak with a lawyer or a trade unionist.
