Opposition Leader has lingering questions on the court decision re PM Skerrit’s Dual Citizenship case
Opposition Leader Lennox Linton appears to have lingering questions regarding the court decision pertaining to Prime Minister Skerrit’s Dual Citizenship matter.
In 2012, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit was embroiled in questions about his Dual citizenship, at the time when he offered himself as the candidate for the Vieille case constituency.
The United Workers Party and its legal team had filed a case against the Prime Minister and Education Minister Peter St. Jean, accusing both men of being unfit to be elected to office, as they possessed Dual Citizenship, which is not permitted under Dominica’s constitution.
Linton contends that under the constitution, and the current court system, case evidence is subject to due process called ‘Discovery’, which allows for both sides to answer questions posed by the other side, and exchange information and evidence, for purposes of clarity and fairness, and for ensuring that cases go forward on the basis of merit.
