Attorney Henry Shillingford assaulted


Today during quiet protest outside the presidents mansion in Dominica police officers in plainclothes drew automatic weapons and pump rifles on the citizens. They were told that they could stand across the street which they complied. The police officers then proceeded to block off the road from the fort young hotel   to DBS radio. This enclosed the protesters across the street from the Presidents mansion. The officers increased in number most of them with bullet proof vest and military fatigue. The protesters summoned local attorney and activists Henry Shillingford. Henry came on the scene and took the bull horn and made a plea to the president about the rights of the protesters. Less than five minutes into the speech someone said that there was a sniper on a building towards the Parliament building. Henry began to walk in a southern direction on the sidewalk when he  was assaulted by a police officer in military fatigue , pushing Henry into the hedge. He then held onto Henry and escorted Henry away from the scene. As of this report we do not know the condition of Henry Shillingford whether he was injured or not. More news to follow
