Former Journalist, Marigot MP and UWP Leader Lennox Linton says he is waiting to see and hear the findings of the Police Investigation into the shady trespassing of two white foreigners suspiciously placing a package near the door of his residential home.
The two men were caught on Linton’s home security camera several months ago, and that footage revealed the identity of the two men who apparently live in England.
Being the Parliamentary Opposition Leader of Dominica, Linton was able to have his team conduct a research into the two white men and provided all this factual information to the Criminal Investigative Department of the Dominica police Force.

Boston says this EC $32,000 residential fee from the country’s Treasury is wrong, stressing, this is happening during a time when the economy and its citizens are struggling to meet basic monthly responsibilities.
Boston asks, ‘why is there so much secrecy about the ownership of this property?’ ‘Why couldn’t the Skerrit Administration approve funds for renovation of the existing official Prime Minister’s residence?’ He wonders weather anyone who assumes the office of Prime Minister will be allowed to live in this high-end residential property.

LIAT employees have been told that the matter of their salaries will be “urgently addressed” at a meeting of the airline’s creditors and shareholders.
After years of financial woes and bailouts, a decision was announced on Saturday to wind up LIAT (1974) Ltd, formally known as Leeward Islands Air Transport.
The issue of intra-regional connectivity is admittedly critical to the islands which the airline serviced, and its owners have said that a new airline will be established, possibly under the same name.
Hon Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua, where LIAT is based, believes the airline is a proud symbol of Caribbean history and should not be erased.
The Hon Prime Minister of St Vincent & the Grenadines, Chair of the Shareholders of LIAT, Ralph Gonsalves signed a letter to the carrier’s hundreds of employees informing them of the disappointing news that the airline is insolvent.
He assured them that their outstanding remuneration will be discussed at a meeting.
Dominica will feel the loss heavily since LIAT is one of six airlines that service the island which does not have an international airport.
Dominica’s Hon Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit said Dominica will support the new airline.
