Roosevelt Skerrit. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit through his attorneys has written to a local online news company demanding an apology for what he considers malicious libel. Information reaching Dominica Vibes News indicates that a local online news company reported in a recent article that the Prime Minister admitted ownership of a French passport.Last week Justice Gertel Thom ruled that Prime Minister Skerrit and Education Minister Petter Saint-Jean legally contested the 2009 general elections. A reporter of that online news company allegedly interviewed the Prime Minister after the verdict was delivered and proceeded to publish an article stating that the Prime Minister admitted to ownership of a French passport.The Prime Minister therefore wrote to the manager of that company indicating that they had “wrongfully, recklessly and maliciously published a false report”. Prime Minister Skerrit believes that such report is understood to be “a calculated attempt to sensationalize the said falsehood” as well as to “promote a campaign of malicious falsehood” against him.He has made a demand for the immediate retraction of that article as well as a publication of an apology. That apology he says should be prominently displayed by the company.He says further that “your failure to comply with this demand with immediate effect will be interpreted as a clear and deliberate intent to publish a malicious falsehood and vicious libel against the Prime Minister”.According to the letter if the company does not retract the article and publish an apology, prompt legal action might be taken against the publisher and company without further notice.

first_imgFloyd’s death has sparked national outrage, and social justice demonstrations turned violent this week in Minneapolis and beyond. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz activated the National Guard on Thursday in order to “help protect Minnesotans’ safety and maintain peace.”Kaepernick’s posts on Twitter and Instagram, both shared Thursday afternoon, addressed the rising anger across the country.MORE: Stephen Jackson opens up about friendship with George Floyd”When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick said. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.”We have the right to fight back! Rest in power George Floyd.” A post shared by colin kaepernick (@kaepernick7) on May 28, 2020 at 9:47am PDTThe four officers involved in Floyd’s death were fired, which Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said was “the right call.” The officer who was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck in the video was later identified as Derek Chauvin. The FBI is investigating the incident. Colin Kaepernick is fully behind the ongoing protests taking place following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.A video surfaced Monday showing a Minneapolis police officer pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck near a squad car. (Officers were responding to a report of a suspected forgery at the time.) Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe, and at one point he stopped moving and appeared to be unconscious. Floyd later died at a local hospital. Kaepernick became a prominent voice for social justice after choosing to kneel during the national anthem in 2016 while playing for the 49ers. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in August 2016. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”UPDATE: Chauvin was taken into custody and has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Friday afternoon.
