CARICOM condemns storming of Suriname's Parliament by protesters

CARICOM leaders have condemned the action of protestors in Suriname who stormed the Parliament in the Dutch-speaking CARICOM country on Friday, in a bid to force the government to reverse its socio-economic policies.
Hundreds of demonstrators broke windows at the Parliament building and looted nearby businesses to protest high fuel and electricity prices.
Dominica's Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and his Barbadian counterpart, Mia Mottley, told journalists at a news conference at the end of the 44th regular summit of CARICOM Heads that the regional leaders had issued a statement on the matter.
Mr Skerrit said the regional leaders were calling for calm and the restoration of peace and order to allow for dialogue and the issues to be addressed in a respectful and lawful manner.
