Word out is that a “Gag Order” was served prohibiting commentary on a case
involving money laundering and other criminal misconduct now before the
courts on Dominica.
The first victim of dictatorship is a free press.
Let us hear from the apologists to say that it is not so.
If true, let the PM speak to this. Let him deny what we see in Dominica
happening before our very eyes. Let him deny this move toward the
destruction of our democracy. Let him deny the control of forces cloaked in the dark
robes of judicial probity to cover up the stench of criminal conduct.
If true, let the learned Jurist, our silent President, speak to this
effort to muzzle press freedom. We must let the world know what is happening in
Dominica. They are afraid and their actions show. We must not be.
