He said he had gone to the compound in an attempt to enter the building to retrieve documents he needed for a meeting with the Electoral Commission consultants from the Commonwealth Secretariat who are visiting Dominica.
“They are denying me access to my office. I cannot go to my office in the Parliament building. They tell me to get off the compound,” he said
Linton said the action by the police was as a result of a “few patriots” – the words used to describe opposition supporters – had gathered near the state-owned DBS radio, which is located close to the Parliament building.
“Police have taken over the Parliament, police have taken over DBS radio, what a country, all because a few patriots have come together and they are here with placards,” Linton said, showing pictures of a few supporters armed with placards outside the radio station.
Linton has been leading the opposition efforts to get Skerrit out of office claiming that the government has been engaged in corrupt activities linked to the controversial Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) through which foreign nationals are provided with citizenship of the island in return for making a substantial investment in the country.
