Haitian nationals fined for cheating

cheating-logoThree Haitians residing in Dominica were each fined EC$3,500.00 to be paid on or before October 31, 2013 or spend 18 months in jail.

The men pleaded guilty to the offence of “Cheating” when they appeared before chief magistrate Evalina Baptiste on April 18, 2013.

According to the facts presented in court by police prosecutor Inspector Claude Weekes, 38-year-old Selian Willio, who resides at Roger and 27-year-old Noel Erncy who resides in Coulibistrie went to the honorary consulate of the Netherlands in Dominica, in an attempt to get a visas to travel to St. Maarten with false and forged job letters from a Thomason Brade of St Joseph who, investigations revealed, is dead.

The other offender, Jean-Mary Anatel, 34, presented a forged job letter from Andy Paul and a photo copy of Paul’s Security card.

A employee at the Dutch consulate spotted the discrepancies and called the police.

Paul was contacted and though he admitted to knowing Anatel, denied giving him the said documents.

Lawyer for Willio, Wayne Norde, asked the court not to impose a custodial sentence on his client who he said was a first time offender in Dominica had fully co-operated with the police, not wasted the courts time and pleaded guilty at the first opportune time. Erncy and Anatel did not have legal representation but they apologized for their indiscretion and asked the court to be lenient and not to impose a custodial sentence on them.

Before sentencing, the chief magistrate told the men that their actions were unacceptable. “You ought to know better…your actions were bold, of poor judgment and cannot be tolerated,” she said.

However, she said that since they were first time offenders and had also pleaded guilty to the offence, she was bound as mandated by law, to give them a “discounted sentence.”

The offence carries a maximum sentence of EC$10,000.00 and 7 years in jail.

      when Dominicans commit fraud in another land and are caught, they are severely punished, usually jailed and deported. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Its only a fool that will rejoice when a foreigner disrespects his country. Furthermore its hypocritical to consider what they did “cheating”. Cheating is a misdemeanor. Copying on a class exams is cheating. They are guest on this island and should act like such not defecate on the countries laws.

    So many young Dominican men are presently rotting in jail because they dared smoke a little spliff. yet illegal Haitian migrants can come here and commit fraud/forgery and other factors that will put Dominica’s name in the immigration dustbin of foreign embassy’s yet they get away with a slap of the wrist. If it was a Dominican in any foreign land he would have been deported back to d/a yet the Haitians are left to “be more careful” next time

    A Dominican young man college student can be kept in jail for money laundering without bail but criminals from Haiti can come here forge people documents and get minimum sentence or walk away free in the same court.

      It is fraud – forgery. They should get a heavier sentence as being sentenced to prison with hard labor. I do not think the Canadian Court System would make them pay a fine or solely a fine. They would be sentenced to prison for forgery. This is a serious offence. If they are not landed immigrants they would also be deported.

      What they did was a crime. Not when they planned to leave Dominica and commit forgery to do so. Let us say if they had paid their passage and traveled to St. Maarten or another country and were sent back, this would be another story. In any case if they did not have landed status in Dominica or are not citizens, immigration of that country could have deported them to Haiti.

      And Dominicans are like Haitian everywhere else. We as a country and region will never see full development if we never realize that each person is an individual who have merits based on their own individual accord.

      Each individual is not the same. No one ask to be born and no one ask to where to be born. That is just predetermined factors a child has no control over and tends to follow them into adulthood.

      In every society you have your thief (who are usually politicians), rapist, the good guy/gal and the whore down the street regardless of origin. It all exists wherever you are. Nationality has nothing to do with it.

        Let Haitians defend themselves, if they are clever enough to forge and defraud, then they should be clever enough to defend themselves!

        If a Dominican goes to a foreign land and violate their laws, he/she should be punished accordingly, so when a Haitian come here illegally in the first place and still have the gall the break other laws, then they should be punished and then deported.

        Its only a foolish people that allow foreigners to come in and take advantage of their generosity.

        Watch your words. When you say “Dominicans are like Haitians everywhere else”, you have greatly erred. You are implicating every Dominican. We are not all the same. There are many Dominicans who reside worldwide who do not cheat people and do not steal from them. They do not have a police record. When the majority of them migrated to other countries their intentions were to work and they did.
        You are the one who should get an education because what you have stated is out of context and does not refer to this article.

      Not only in the UK but also in Canada and the US. I watched a program on TV about those in the US, his crimes and how many times he was deported to Nigeria and returned. It was also stated that this man has a degree. I hope it was legitimate.
      Only this week there was another case in Canada. A Nigerian was being sought by the police authorities. I heard he turned himself in. Some of them are crooks. They use these countries to ply their illegal trade of various sorts, stealing from people and advising them that their money is used for investment. They are full of tricks. People must be aware of them.

Don’t u all know they don’t care if they drown in the ocean just to get to America or Jamaica? These people have nothing, so they don’t care trying anything to survive. Take heed Dominica.

    The so-called DA Justice System is not always fair How fair on most occasions. You will recall a few years ago a man was deported/asked to leave Dominica for overstaying his visit. No plea would make the magistrate compassionate. From what I read on DNO, this was a hardworking man.
    Now, they are harboring Haitians who forged Dominicans name, one who was dead to gain entry to St. Maarten and to work there. They know how far, to other countries, they would have traveled to were they successful with their deceit. Such a crime deserves severe punishment, not a few dollars to be paid by October 31st. Are they employed? Where will they get the money?
    They know how far, to other countries, they would have traveled to were they successful with their deceit.
    Dominicans, beware of befriending such people. There is such a thing as “identity theft”, stealing your name which is the crime that some of them commit. Is this not a serious crime enough to warrant deportation from Dominica?
    Let me inform you. If I were a PM, a judge or magistrate in Dominica, this would never happen. No unfairness in the Court. No freebies and leniency for criminals. The Law must be changed and those who are the judges, magistrates and in the legal system should be re-trained. This is the manner in which I see it.
    The Court System is digging its own hole. Dominica will never be free of criminals. They will escalate. Dominican-born residents must do something about that and take back their country, not by violence but my contacting your PM and politicians in the constituency. Prayerful and peaceful rallies should be organized. God will help you but you must take action. In the Name of God, please, no violence.

        There is a tendency to judge everyone because of the actions of a few. Sorry to hear that all Dominicans are branded in St. Maarten because of a few. Is it possible for Dominican voices to be heard and the good Dominicans stand up for their rights through the Media and politicians?
        In Toronto it is mainly the Jamaicans. I guess this is why they are branded per population. I do not hear about any Dominicans who reside in Toronto get themselves in trouble with the Law or murder someone.
        I am an avid TV News viewer. I like to hear what is occurring in the city/ country and also read the newspaper. Surely if there were any especially in recent years I would hear about it through the Media broadcast and read about it in the newspaper.

    The old cliche, “did not waste the Court’s time” and “first-time offender” which I view as a joke and a slap in the face to the victims. Dominican-born residents must be frustrated with this Court System and the criminals’ legal defense. I feel it and I do not reside in DA.
    Some people get away with a lot in the Dominican Court with this type of Law which needs to be revamped. I had asked how old is this Law and when last was it revised? Today, Dominica has a different set of criminals of every sort compared to bygone years.
    Their crimes of those Haitians are serious enough to be fined the maximum amount and sentenced to prison.
    These people are not patriotic to Dominica. They are using Dominica and also as their gate to other shores.
    They should really be deported. Why keep such people in the island? Sometime down the road, in the future, probably sooner than we expect, Dominicans will pay for this and reap the fruits in a worst way of the leniency of the DA Court. Mark my words.

      Agree with you, this is a serious offence having falsified documents/dead person identity this is identity theft which is a felony, which ranges from a number of years in prison, a hefty fine and deportation, for the woman to be pitiful for them Haitians and charging them this peanuts this is ridiculous, as far as I know Haitians are notorious for this type of activities, this is not Haitians first time committing such crime on the island,how much do they have to do in order to deport them back to their country?,how many of them are travelling with dead people’s names and information?, how many, there’s no excuse whatsoever for these type of criminal activities, imagine not using their real name and identities, when they migrate to wherever continuing their dirty trade, imagine being caught,and hear on the news, a Dominican do so and so, where as it it not a Dominican but a Haitian

      Florida and other parts of the USA, and other countries had enough with them, many of them are deportees and big time criminals who will do all that they can to change their identity to migrate to the same USA etc

      I am wondering how many of the Haitians prisoners/the prison escapees who fled Haiti during the disaster are now residing in Dominica

      Haitians are bad news for Dominica, keep on welcoming them it is just a matter of time

      Just see what Wyclef Jean did with the money his charity raised for Haiti what he did with the money. The singer, who made an unsuccessful bid for Haiti’s presidency in 2010, reportedly paid himself $100,000 to perform in a charity concert and gave his family over $500,000 for unspecified work. Also, $37,000 was paid by Yele to cover the rent of Jean’s Manhattan studio this is to show that not only the poor Haitians involve in fraud also the rich

      Excellent question. Who knows? It was not stated how long ago the person had died and if this Haitian knew the person. Nevertheless, it could happen that names are taken from tombstones. I believe this has happened in big countries.
      In this era of forgery, it would be wise not to put their full names and year of birth and death on their tombstones. Some people have yet not to give this a thought. They should consider it.

    This is not new with Hatians. They are all over in the world trying to survive and forging names is nothing new with them. However the difference is, in other parts of the world that they reside in, I have always heard of them producing false papers to get better paying jobs, move family members, or to become permanent residents. I never heard of them forging documents to run from a country. When Haitians are caught forging papers to run out of a country, you know it is a sign that things are extremely bad in that country to the point that they will try to flee by all means possible. This is just a reflection of how real life is in Dominica under Skerrit and since they might not be able to vote, they cannot get service from the RED ClINIC. The only reason why more Dominicans not fleeing is because they are trapped and have no money to pay their way out. Give Skerrit and the DLP another term in office and soon all our red ants, all our snakes, all crapos, all abolos and zandolies will try to run out as well. I am Not joking friends!

Noted how clever the two other defendants were they did not have council to represent them, but cleaverly used the same plea used by the trained Lawyer and was handed the same sentence. Dominicans take note and learn,in time to come the lawyers will just stay at their offices and mitigate via social media in the manner they are doing right now. Our Haitian brothers and sisters are living all over our Island, but they are not prepared to stay in Dominica as is in this case,soon we will need a task force to track them Down.

Having stated that, if they are children who have Dominican names, their parents are smart to give their children those names. In this case they could travel to any part of the world undetected, passing as Dominicans and not Chinese people when their features are Chinese. What a melee.

      A las I feel sorry for some of you and those who gave you the thumbs up. I mean you do not know whats going on around you. When a Chinese national migrant to Dominica they are given and English name. Similarly when Dominicans migrate or temporary migrate, like the students who go to study they are given Chinese names. Thats part of allowing the smooth transition.

        Really? It is not something we are bound to know. No big deal here. Why should they change their names? It is as when some people change their religion to Islam.

    They always show their true colour every when they go, no matter how much you try to help them they have to turn around and screw people up. I say deport them immediately after they pay their fines. Haiti……The greatest nightmare on earth.

      That’s the same thing that they were doing all over Florida and other parts of the USA, this is the reason why they deported many of them back to Haiti, also the reason why when caught on the waters the coast guard send them back to Haiti

      As I always said, Haitians are using Dominica and Dominicans, there’s more to come, this is a matter, why keep them in Dominica, any other country they would be deported right back to Haiti

      Haitians will never learn

      Phony Cuban documents being filed for U.S. residency, feds say

      Being a Cuban has its benefits in the United States, and some apparently are willing to pay up to $20,000 to become one — at least on phony papers.

      Federal authorities on Wednesday announced the arrests of 20 people allegedly involved in a widespread immigration scheme in which most falsely claimed to be Cubans to gain legal residency in the United States.

    Because this act was done by Haitians, I know we will be harsh on them and call them all kinds of names. But people from all nations do this type of thing. In the case of the Haitians they were just trying to run away from Dominica because they realize Skeritt has left them with know hope since they killed agriculture and they cannot even hire those nationals that got scholarships. So it is a sign of hopelessness and desperation and very soon, we will see many more Dominicans try to get out.
    Bye the way, I did not know it was a crime in Dominica for a person to forge the name of a dead person to the point that it was even investigated. In the 2010 elections, didn’t I hear the names of some dead people that voted? Were they investigated as well? Boy, me daba

        @767, Why are you pretending to be so silly? Have u ever voted my friend? Although u don’t have to sign your name to vote, you should know that in Dominica a voting list is produced in every village. On election poll workers have that list and whenever a person comes to vote, they identify your name from the list and then cross it out once found. How do you know the name of ppl that vote you asked? That’s why we need voters ID.

      A crime is a crime. We should make no excuses for crimes.
      What do you know? What are you stating that you did not know it was a crime to forge someone’s name? Whether it is in Dominica or any other country, it is a crime and punishable.
      We did not learn this in school but common sense should inform us that it is a crime, taking and using another’s name. How would you like someone to forge your name? You could lose your identity and it would take years with much anxiety and stress and expensive to convince the government that you are that person. This happens in big countries. I have heard and read about it. Those crooks even sell people’s house while they are living in it and pocket the money.
      Forgery and identity theft should be a concern for us.
      We are also told not to throw anything with our names on them in the garbage but to shred them prior to placing them in the garbage bin. Also, do not give anyone our confidential and personal information over the telephone and also via the Internet. Those crooks are everywhere.
