Since Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerritâ€™s recent statements expressing support for the use of capital punishment in severe cases, members of the general public have been engaged in intense discussions regarding the enforcement of the death penalty in Dominica.
In a recent cabinetâ€“hosted press conference at the Financial Centre last week, Prime Minister Skerrit declared that his government had no intention on removing death penalty legislation from the law books of the state.
Prime Minister Skerrit pointed to the courtsâ€™ duty in instituting the full extent of punishment on convicted murderers and repeat criminals.
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?
- Should the government go ahead and enforce capital punishment in Dominica?
- And do you think enforcing the death penalty will curb the level violence?
