Message of Condolence to the people and Government of Dominica

OECS Media Statement

It is with profound sadness that the Director General and staff of the OECS Commission offer their heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the people and Government of Dominica over the tragic loss of five young men in a road accident over the weekend.  The area where the accident occurred is represented in parliament by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

Dr. Jules said that their thoughts and prayers were with the parents, siblings and loved ones of the boys and that he hoped families were able to draw strength from the knowledge that the whole of the OECS stood shoulder to shoulder with their families at this difficult time.

“I am mindful that no words or deeds offered can ever truly erase the pain of loss and we pray at this time that everyone affected by this tragedy may find comfort in the knowledge that these sons of Dominica rest in God's eternal peace" said Dr. Jules.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
