They are due to appear in court soon.Acting Prime Minister Reginald Austrie told a news conference that the Roosevelt Skerrit administration is condemning any acts of aggression “by Dominicans towards our foreign friends and visitors and others working with us and supporting us in realising the future development of our country”.
