Amendments to Emergency Powers approved
Attorney General Levi Peter has said the amendments to emergency powers approved in the Dominica parliament on Monday was justified as Dominica continues to grapple with the impact of COVID-19.
Minister for National Security and Home Affairs Rayburn Blackmoore asked the Dominica parliament to approve a resolution to extend a state of emergency for 3 months.
The house was asked to amend the emergency powers act to facilitate an ongoing curfew into early May.
Mr. Peter likened the ongoing situation to a disaster situation needing emergency powers to the state.
