Leader of the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton is questioning the purpose of Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit’s current trip to Greece.
Linton spoke on Saturday night via Facebook, following statements made by Skerrit during a live address from Greece earlier that night, where he denied reports that surfaced on an internet blog site, to the effect that he is being investigated by United States Authorities, in relation to allegations that he sold a diplomatic passport to ex-Dominican diplomat, Alireza Zabahalat Monfared, an Iranian national, who was arrested recently after an international manhunt.
Last week a government press release stated that Prime Minister Skerrit went on a working visit to Greece, and was being accompanied by non-resident Ambassador to that country, Attorney Lennox Lawrence. But Linton is questioning wants to know the real reasons Mr Skerrit is in that European country.
Linton raised the questions; “You are in Greece, at the moment, and we understand that you are in the company of Attorney Lennox Lawrence, an associate of a Greece law firm; but are you in Greece to consult with your financial advisor? And since Mr. Lawrence is with you, is this about ships registry business?” he questioned.
Linton is asking Mr Skerrit to be specific as to what business he is undertaking on behalf of Dominica in Greece.
He called on Mr Skerrit to “come clean” with the people of Dominica.
