-Dominicans have never spent a Xmas Holiday Season such as was Christmas
1971 .-and New Year 1972. There was a heavy auraof suspense and foreboding
over-the land during ..this period and the cutomary peace and goodwill of
the Season was conspicuously absent.
Tn this connection, one must.-pause and pay tribute to the spiritual
leaders. of. Dominica. Theylacted at a moment when things seemed at their
darkest .and. by their efforts: gave a breathing spell when it was most
needed and I feel that'the timing f their appeals saved us from a great
evil. The few misguided persons" who. would feel that the. Church in Dominic
,has no utility will need to think again.

Sowers. Me~ of such sensitivity could not helpfeeling and sensing on
arrival that all was not well in their native land and they became so il
at ease that several of them initiated i-ioves to try and bring Government
and people together to iron out.differencies. These prestigious persons
deserve our thanks for their actions in a moment of national danger. Had
the Christian Council not acted and ...the sons of Dominica not intervened,
there is no knowing what might have happened in the period following the
16th of December,
But we are by no means out of the woods. There seems to be no pos.si-
ility of going back to the pre-16th December national mood. That date
closed one era and opened another in the history of Dominicao We have
entered upon what is, an extremely critical period and one which calls for

COMMISSION" OF INQUIRY INTO EVENTS OF T-EEMBER 16 -
POLICE AND DEFENCE FORCE GIVE EVIDENCE
A breath of.,wry. salt Bajan air circulated in the Parish Hall at
Goodwill when the one-man Commission began its work at 11 a.m. last Mon-..
day morning. Although many citizens put their. names down to give et~den:cW
the entire week was more, or less- taken Up by Police and Defence Force
witnesses -- questioned on certain. points: by Miss Eugenia .Charles, with
the permission of Commissioner Mr. E.R-.L. Ward.
Although the ..a.l afs~icter f Police Mr. D. Philbert and his Dpputy
Mr. H.L.Doctrove narrated-the events of Dec. 16 in the same-moderate and
restrained manner with which they had (fortunately for everybody) conduct e,
their duties on that dramatic day, certain startling facts emerged: first,
that Mr. Philbert had an "operational plan" ready to deal with disturb-
ances or riots in and around the House of Assembly -- and this plan in-
cluded the calling iin of the Dominica Defence Force, who later grumbled
because they were not issued with guns, and of police reserves under
Inspector Joseph; also a great deal of rambling around town, to Police
H Q,'to'the Premier's Office,'where they were given instructions, and elobi
intermittent contact with Mr. Watty, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry
of Home Affairs, who must have had a busy morning. There were also several
telecommunications checks, and a visit to the Morne Armory by Mr. Doctrov
The understatement of last year must have been Mr. Philbert's reply to a
question by the Commissioner -- 'after Miss Charles told the large crowd
that the bill had been withdrawn -
"Withdrawn what Bill?" asked Mr. Ward.
"I didn't ask her," said Commissioner Philbert.
Another -most revealing moment was when we learned that the Speaker
of -the House, Mr.- Francis, gave Inspector Pierre (in charge of the House
squad, and indeed of the gate) a lidt of names of persons "not to be' ad-
mitted into the House". "This information," continued Mr. Philbert, I
communicated by telephone to the Perm. Sec., Ministry of Home Affairs"(Mr.
Watty) for advice. Later on Inspector Pierre, questioned'by Miss Charles,
gave some of the names asi:"Alvin Armantrading, Edward Scobie, Derek Philli .,
Eden Bellot.-.. Stafford Lestrade and Loftus Roberts."
We just wonder whether any Speaker elsewhere in the Commonwealth has
se:er given such instructions to a Police Chief before.
Some of the .turns-of expression used by the two top Police Officers
were quite disarming. At 9.10 on the 16th "about 20 persons were standing
on the sidewalks (outside the.Court House). The House was clear..It had
been searched by:C.I.D..I.and Special Branch Section. There was no unpleasant
atmosphere." -(Mr. Philbert). How could the poor man ever guess that by
10 a.m. the whole of Victoria Street from Turkey Lane to the junction, of
High Street the Library Grounds and the Anglican churchyard, would be
filled with protesters? Or that Inspector Joseph would report "the House "
is in disorder by a sudden mob who have overcome the Police"? The Chief
and his Deputy on arrival wove their:.way through the crowd without resis-
tance, however, and did not describe the,mob as a hostile one, both giving
graphic descriptions of how the people, satisfied.that "The Bill" was with-
drawn "dispersed jubilantly down" the street in masquerading fashion"..-
Inspector Joseph said he had evidence that the Speaker was assault ,
but when asked by Miss Charles "Inside or outside the House?" replied "I
The question of whether tables and chairs were deliberately broken or
broker down because "the mob" climbed on them to -see better and get space
was another moot point. But probably the most felicitous sentence in the
two first days of -proceedings was when Inspector Pierre -described how a
Councillor allegedly tore the'bill "dealing with Asolation of the Roseau
Town Council." Mr. Pierre, who. certainly had the most testing assignment
of that morning, contributed many quotes, such as "they would go for the
Premier wherever' he.is, whether visible or invisible" and this of course'
raised a ripple from attendant witnesses. The Commissioner wanted to know'
what that meant; Inspector Pierre did not know, so-.Miss Charles elucidated.
