National Security Minister Rayburn Blackmoore has confirmed that three men have been formally charged with the attempted murder of Police Officer Wilberton Jules.
On Carnival Monday Jules was severely beaten on Church Street in Roseau by several men inflicting numerous serious injuries to the upper body and head of the Constable of Police with a hammer and a rock weighing over 15lbs.
Blackmoore told members of the media Thursday that he strongly condemns any attack on police officers and they will not be tolerated.
Meantime, the Minister commended the police force for their heightened presence during the Carnival celebrations.
He says such acts of violence against police officers and members of the public will not define Dominica.
