ROSEAU, Dominica – Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and journalist Mathias Peltier appeared in court here on Wednesday in connection with a law suit filed by the head of the Dominica government over a newspaper article published in 2007. Skerrit had started legal proceedings against the Dominica Times newspaper after it published a front page article headlined The Five Thousand Dollar Salary, Million Dollar Asset. Lawyers for the prime minister contend that the article contained inaccurate information designed to destroy the image of their client. (CMC)
