Last month, the outspoken public figure had threatened to file a lawsuit against the opposition Dominica Freedom Party for defamation. He told a news conference that the planned legal action was against the party’s political leader, Kent Vital and its president, Johnson Boston, over comments they made on their weekly party radio programme during the 2019 general election campaign.

Bellot is survived by his wife, Claudia.
