Attorney letter dispatched to Lennox Linton

 The letter was dispatched to Linton on Wednesday morning
The letter was dispatched to Linton on Wednesday morning

A letter demanding that leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, retract and apologize for statements made at UWP youth rally in St. Joseph on Sunday has been dispatched to him.

The letter from the office of attorney at law, Lennox Lawrence, is expected to be served at the airport in Antigua. It is reported that Linton left Dominica for that island on Wednesday morning.

At the youth rally, Linton referred to alleged activities by ministers as rape and noted that there is no honor in a government who harbors them.

“There can be no honor in a government that harbors rapist ministers and upholds extortion of sexual services from young people seeking the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse,” he said.

The letter from Lawrence, on behalf of ministers of cabinet said, “Your words meant, and were understand to mean, our clients who are Ministers of Cabinet of the government are rapists, and harbour rapists in their midst, and therefore aided and abetted and condoned the commission of the criminal offense of rape by Ministers.”

The letter said the allegations are ‘completely false and outrageous’ and was “deliberately and intentionally fabricated by you in a desperate attempt to deflect attention from an allegation of sexual harassment, which official records indicate was made by a female employee against you when you were employed at Dominica Coconut Products Limited, and score cheap political points at the expense of the youth.”

The letter also asked for $1-million in compensation from Linton.

    If I can help somebody fairly, then my living shall not be in vain.
    Many changes are required in Dominica and not necessarily a change of government.
    The government must apply a different strategy on the best manner to provide financial assistance to the needy. It is not a favor granted to those who are in need; it is a necessity for their livelihood. Governments are obligated to assist the needy.
    My advice, in order to avoid this fiasco of purported proposition of sexual favors from women who appear for financial assistance, now that it has been publicly brought out in the forefront, the D/can government should take steps that this type of situation does not recur.
    Actually, there is no smoke without fire. Nevertheless, this is not the manner in which this type of unbecoming behavior should be exposed; not at a rally where especially many youths were present. Discretion was not exercised.
    If it is ascertained that they committed this infraction, the government should instruct those who are responsible for handing out the money to the needy to exercise respect for the women and refrain from their inappropriate personal feelings. They should conduct themselves as professionals befitting of their position. Human beings in general deserve to be treated with due rights, dignity and respect.
    Those who have been given the obligation should consider that they are performing a job, a government job and this type of behavior should be exempt from their work ethics and association with the public.
    This means they should refrain from propositioning women for sexual favors. It really is demeaning and disappointing to the women that they who are in need of government assistance should be subjected to such a situation and have to put up with such behavior. It would be shocking for them. After all, this is not the reason why they came for financial assistance and government assistance at that.
    If it can be proven, those who are responsible should really be reprimanded and also fired. This type of reputation has exposed the perpetrators and debased their government. If brought to the attention of the PM, it should not be tolerated. Once and for all, it should be stopped.

      “Many changes are required in Dominica and not necessarily a change of government.”

      Simple the Truth, the most necessary change in Dominica at the moment is the government! I will tell you this, in the beginning I was not too keen on supporting the Labor Party, based on the way they siege power, however, when Skerrit came along, and I saw some moves that he made, I thought he would be the one to change Dominica period!

      However, after many mistakes sequentially, I may add, I could not continue to support the labor party. Loyalty does have a limit. That that limit has peaked for the majority of Dominicans right now. The country has become stagnant in one place, poverty has overwhelmed our people, and that is because the present government has become politically bankrupt of ideas, and can no long function in a progressive way. They have nothing new to offer, except a pile of lies.

      Year after year they boost of repairing roads: The repairing of roads has been going on in Dominica for more than a hundred years. There is nothing new about that; and in those hundred years, while the British maintained the roads they employed local Dominicans via Public Works Department to do the work, hence locals had a job to survive. The servicing of Roads in Dominica these days are carried out by Chines, how many Dominica are making a living from the contracts given to the Chines.

      If this present government could have done any better than what we have at this moment, I suspect they would have done better, their best right now is not good enough, so it is in the interest of the people to change the government, give a new breath of people the opportunity to do something different which may produce some success.

      Our nation cannot go on like this. The ministers of government are doing fine, while the people who vote them into power lives in the grips of an economic vise-grip; they are feeling the squeeze> You live in a country where; whether you work or not at the end of the month you will receive a cheque which may help you until the other one arrived, in Dominica, if you do not have it, and someone does not have pity on you and help in some way you can well starve to death.

      A change in government in the country also means a change in the vision of the leaders, who may find a way to bring some industries to the country, and so jobs will be created, people will be able to work, and their dependency on Government will vanish, that is what you should hope for rather than suggesting that change of government is not necessary.

      McIntyre, a government asks recently “where are they going to find all these jobs?” If you are in the government, and ask a stupid question like that why should people vote for a government like that. Doesn’t this guy know that jobs are not found the are created, hence when people go out to look for work they can be found. If this government is voted back into power, Dominica will become a failed State. That is the truth, some people may not have expected to hear that from me nevertheless, I have relatives in Dominica suffering the same as others, they are the ones left behind, unnoticed they need work also, the young ones need work so that the can help the older ones.

      If I like a government so much, that I would rather leave that government in power, only to see the country fail while the individual ministers do well, that would qualify me as a fool, all mouths deserve to be feed, at this time and point of our history, there are too many hungry people in our country!

        Telemaque, the good thing about human beings, they have their opinion and others have theirs. You do not know me personally. Whenever I write I put on my thinking cap. I weigh out situations. What I have to state to you is, conduct a survey of the reasons why people are in need of especially the younger ones.
        You stated that you left D/ca when you were 14 years. Did you really? I worked in D/ca. I know about what I stated. Today, D/cans and that is the poor which some bleeding hearts speak of and feel sorry for as they lambaste the PM are better off than the poor of those days.
        I resided and worked in Dominica. I know better than you who said you left D/ca at 14 years. I do not know what year you left and I am not questioning it but from your writing and what you stated, you are a senior citizen. When last you visited D/ca and how many times you visited there since you migrated to the U.S.?
        I am reiterating that “What Dominica needs is a change of system and not necessarily or not at all a change of government.”
        I will not be critical of the PM. Too many of you are on his back for no good but do not have any concrete suggestion which couild be helpful for D/ca and its residents.. You do not have the right vision and approach.
        I could advise the government about changes which need to be improved and laws which should be enacted.
        Furthermore, how many of you, as men treated women and young girls with dignity and respect? This is the issue I have addressed.
        You want me to write a book about the overall situation as I saw it in Dominica especially when I resided there? Do not challenge me. :lol:

      They got an impartial lawyer. Why do you not use your common sense?

    I listened to Q-95 this morning and heard the voice of Alex Boyd Knight, re abused children and the issue of “Prostitution” and really confirms what Lennox Linton is saying.

    So Madam Speaker, what is it you were really saying in 2002 about Prostitution and what is the difference with what Lennox and the UWP are saying in 2014 in protection of the victims of abused by these high office government people, so called honourable?

    What a load of Chim Chim Bwa shesh.
    We have in one corner of the boxing ring the challenger Mr Lennox Linton throwing wild punches hoping to land that knock out blow to the credibility of the government; but not being successful in his attempts.

    In the other corner of the ring we have the current champions (the government) counter punching and doing a very effective job at docking and diving from Lennox Linton’s wild swings.

    According to one the punches that was thrown at Lennox Linton, a report stated that on record there is an allegation made against him of sexual harrassment when he was employed at Dominica Coconut Products.

    Mr. Linton this is not smart politics on your behalf. Why would you want to swing a punch at someone, when you are fully aware that your opponent is going to throw back a hand grenade that will explode in your face and live you damaged. THERE IS NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE MR LINTON.
    It seem to me Mr. Linton you have scored an own goal.

    There is an old cliche/proverb that states: If you have nothing good to say, then say nothing.
    I have never known a flyweight boxer beating a heavyweight boxer. It is a total mismatch.
    From my current viewpoint, what I am seeing is; the current champions are winning the propaganda war Mr. Linton.

    Ladies and gentlemen

    I have no political party affiliation. I am just a student in law school who is married to a Dominican beauty, thus I use this reason to make this statement.

    Mr.Linton’s statement was

    “There can be no honor in a government that harbors rapist ministers and upholds extortion of sexual services from young people seeking the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse.”

    From the above statement, I have not seen any mention of a particular government.. He just said …in a government…. So how can anyone deduce that he was referring to the present DLP government, or even the present DLP ministers.

    Let us take a closer look at how this is playing out. Let us assume that instead of Mr.Linton saying ..in a government” he had said ..in a banking institution, or in a police force or service… Does that mean all employees of all the banks, credit unions etc…will then have the right to file defamation of character lawsuits, or all police officers as well….

    The point is he never made mention in this particular statement about the DLP government…he mentioned ..in a government.”

    So this is going to be very interested to the us in the law community to see the outcome.

      Mr fake lawstudent/fake not Dominican but married to one, how many tapes are there? how many instances did lennox speak about ministers raping? how much of th senjo rally an other tapes did you watch? you see if you were real, you would have researched before embarrassing yourself on dno. now all these fake two pence lawyers, flyby nite lawyers and apologists will not be in court with lennox. the stories of abuse will not be there either only evidence will be entertained and no fake whatsapps. the big mouth lennox i know if he had grounds he would walk to tony astafans office and ask to be served. The fact that he ducking says he has nothing that can stand in court as usual. soon he will ask for the ministers to bring evidence of rape in court.

Lennox is brilliant because he used his words very carefully. No where did he say DLP government. All the Ministers are idiots for even writing their names on that letter. They want one million to continue their soliciting? LOL

    I need to clear something here. I am not a fan of LL nor the PM. In fact, I don’t think I like any of the politicians on the island right now. I do not know who is smarter than whom. But Dominicans need to learn that being a good speaker does not make you intelligent. The skill of giving a convincing speach is down to practice like all other things, along with how much you can convince your audience that what you are saying is true. It is not a matter of intelligence. I will agree LL is somewhat of an ok investigator / journalist. But it is nothing anyone else couldn’t do with time, money and years of experience. This is a very bad comparison, but hitler was great at giving speeches. He seduced Germany with his toungue and convince every single German that they could take over the world. In the end, maybe he could’ve succeeded but his arrogance and madness by refusing to listen to his generals’ recommendations caused him to lose the war. In the end it was proven that he came from a family with a long line of mental illness, and he was possibly a heroin addict. His speeches were so believable and powerful because he believed them, and because he believed it, it was convincing. But he believed it because he was both high and insane (possibly) at the same time.

    Again bad comparison, but I hope you get my point. I would not class LL as intelligent. Just good at his job. Beyond giving a good speech, whether at a platform or on radio, there is nothing more to him just yet.

    As for the other side smh, I will save that for another day. But at the end of the day Dominicans, we need to stop fighting over politics. Agree to disagree and let bygones be bygones

    “We seem to be missing the point of the apology and possible lawsuit. Linton did not say that the ministers are sexually harassing the young women or are guilty of sexual misconduct. He said they are rapist and that is a very strong statement.”

    Government is a term generally used to describe the formal institutions through which a land and its people are ruled; to govern is to rule. Government is comprised of institutions, and processes that rulers establish to strengthen, and perpetuate their power, or control over a territory, and its inhabitants, nevertheless. Nothing can be accomplish by coercion.

    Even if Lennox or anyone else stated that the government Government ministers are rapist, there is a no grounds for a law suite! Who has he libel? Who has he slandered?

    An institution? A guilty conscience need no accuser!

    How has he damage the institution? To be awarded damages in a court of law, such institution must be able to prove damages, so I ask what sort of damages has he cause the institution of government in Dominica. Asking Lennox to apologize even if he said government ministers are rapist, it must be noted no individual minister name was mentioned, hence if this matter is taken to court, the only way one “the government can prevail is if they set up a bogus kangaroo court, and the judge is a poppet, controlled by the government; who would perhaps render a bogus judgement, which would not be based on any law, and especially based on common law.

    You see the danger, of moving away from the Privy Council in England to become hook up the CCJ, Dominicans need to worry about that, if the government changes one should consider pulling out from the CCJ, because there will be no actual rule of law left. Asking Lennox to apologize, or face a lawsuit of which they value One million dollars, far surpass coercion, to me that is extortion, it is the same as someone holding a gun to ones head, and demand their money. The only form of coercion which might be appropriate; is in a situation where it gives the government a limited amount of power to be used in order to get people to obey the laws, of the land, and to punish those who do not. Government ministers, Lawyers, and the so called elitist, in Dominica, some who believe their connection to some politician, gives them the right to live above the law; therefore their crimes must go unnoticed and left alone, and in the event anyone has the courage to speak out about their breaking of the law; then they set out to destroy both the massage, and the messenger.

    This is what is in process in Dominica right now! Coercion takes many different forms, and this which is the topic at the moment is a very dangerous form of coercion. Indeed totalitarian governments has used coercion to destroy their opponents, which includes social institutions, churches, labor unions, and political parties, that may function as rival source of power. Examples of a totalitarian government includes the Third Reich in Germany under Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s and the 1940’s. We also experience the former Soviet Union under Marshall Joseph Staline between the 1930’s and the 1950’s.

    I hope that is not where our country is heading!

    It is sad to see that politics in Dominica has sank so low, it is like Dominica politicians has no ambition to find a legitimate way to make a living any longer, they are not satisfied with pittance they make in government, so the alternative is to sue the other person even if that other spoke; however, never mentioned the name of any individual politician in their conversation.

    I have never seen such hatred anywhere in the world I have traveled; our country operates on hate!

    But politics is nothing but cheap tricks and foul play. Government ministers acting like …. in the country. Since when throwing shade is politics. And they want people to vote for them? I happy for those fauxticians they have in power there.

    it doesn’t matter which party you supporting, you should be able to see truth from fake. Open allyou damn eyes. As you can clearly see politicians looking for their pocket.

    Lennox linton sounds more intelligent when he speaks but my goodness, at least shut up and be the bigger man nuh. If you want people to look at you as a leader a least carry yourself as one; and that goes for all politicians on both side.

    Acting like vemin. Stupes. I not going to watch ni Linton Ni Skerrit and say they my leader or my PM. no sa. Change must come and should come but start with allyou self first.

    This Letter stuff should have been last resort by the PM and his Cabinet! If the Ministers know that beyond a reasonable doubt that their actions are not shady and begging any questions well they should take action. The PM should use this opportunity to ensure that his ministers are beyond reproach and uphold to high moral and spiritual values. Upon investigation, ministers should be cleared or punished if they are caught in such slackness.
    Its not okay to cast aspersions of any kind but this should be a reality check for those in High Office.
    Can all the not guilty honourable men and women please stand up? can all the guilty kindly stand up? No matter what form of representation we may receive by men and women in this world, there will come the time for Almighty God to cast judgement ………………………. God is watching everything that’s going on………………….. The PM should ask persons to come forward and talk about such matters so as to clear the air and clear the government. Its time to say no to bad behaviour……… if there is an ounce of truth left in Dominica, time to look at good and bad behaviour…………. But time will tell!

    I listened to him during the convention and I must admit that he is very BOLD to make such allegation. I want him to please present solid proof of his allegations or eles HE WILL BE GOING DOWN. I am trying to decide where I should vote and Mr. Linton is not helping me.

It’s just not the way to say something like that if true. And what happen to innocent until proven guilty? He just handle the thing badly, whether true or not. I absolutely hate this politics things. DOMINICA IS BEYOND SEGREGATED. It is actually sad to see how Dominicans are behaving right now. Pure hate towards each other.

    Politics! Politics! We all here will support whatever party we want notwithstanding how low the gutter politics is, how untrue or true the statements may be. Most of us, even me supported the Policeman but he has a huge bill to pay for singing a song. We may ask, was that justice? Having looked at what has happened and continues to happen, with we saying whatever we want and whenever we want under the “Free Speech” banner, I say it was. We as a people must know that free speech is not a tool given to cause grief to anyone but rather to express ones self as dictated by law.

    Where one feels aggrieved when another has expressed himself under the banner of free speech, he must and should take the matter to court where the true test of free speech is held.

    I am not a fan of Tony, but in this case he is wright. An allegation was made by Mr. Linton who claimed that the ministers are rapists; words to that effect. This is a serious allegation that must be addressed. Mr. Linton should and must have evidence to back up his public pronunciation. In the absence of this his action can be interpreted as being malicious and devious, surely traits unbecoming of a leader. On the other hand, where evidence is produced to show that the allegation is true, the ministers involved must be punished and dishonorably removed from their positions.

    In order to arrive at any of these conclusions, the evidence must be brought before a court of law. There it will be looked at and justice will prevail. Please don’t be delusional and say there is no justice here in DA, because there is. We only come up with this injustice nonsense when the court rules in favor of our opponents. Let the court decide on this one. Enough of these dangerous politics, affecting innocent people lives.

    Dominicans especially the young women who claimed they were raped must read the sexual offences act before they go and expose them self in the court. act no1 of 1998 section 2(1)2 it says for the purpose of this act sexual of this act sexual intercourse shall be deemed complete upon proof of penetration of the vagina to any extent by the penis. so when you all say you going evidence in defense of Linton make sure that evidence. You all can get a copy of the act government website dominica.gov.dm and you can get a free copy down loaded. Don’t be fooled by Linton and his cronies read the law for yourselves and don’t let politics cloud your minds

    May 29, 2014

    We seem to be missing the point of the apology and possible lawsuit. Linton did not say that the ministers are sexually harassing the young women or are guilty of sexual misconduct. He said they are rapist and that is a very strong statement.

    So the case will not be based on the statements that may come forward from some women about ministers touching them or they having sex with them but it will be based strongly on the fact that they were called rapists and not one of them have ever been convicted of rape. Rapist is a very strong word.

    Lennox should just apologize and stop being arrogant. He always stress the points when he makes them and then ask people to quote him so it is his problem now.

    The tapes are not edited.

    I consider Mr Linton to be highly intelligent.
    However his apparent inability to understand that there is a right and a wrong way to say PUBLICLY, some of the things he keeps saying, (notwithstanding how eloquently and powerfully he says them), has me stumped.
    In Trinidad, the Calypsonians get away with saying so much, not because the people who they sing about don’t mind what they say about them, but because the things they sing are undeniably TRUE. I hope for Linton’s, UWP’s, and DOMINICA’s sake, that this matter goes to court, and the undeniable proof that government minister or ministers are “Rapist”, will be provided. I’d expect that the public’s judgement of that case would be more significant, than the Judge’s ruling.

    There is one thing that those who engage themselves in writing and indeed publishing such threatening letters have not yet come to realise. Mr Linton is no fool in fact he is articluate, he is fact a man who pays attention to the finest of detail.

    Do you not consider that he would never state anything that he could not absolutely prove beyond all shaddow of reasonable doubt. If those who act in haste who entitle themselves as serious advocates of law had any basic common sence they would have said nothing and kept quiet.

    Yet again we experience hasty ill considered court action they have learned nothing even the garbage bin bobol was denied and threats made, the truth can be likened to a cancer in remission the guilty think they are home free, but out of remission comes the truth.

    And the only defence is the well proven stretcher of truth the one and only Astaphan sue sue sue it’s all lies give me a million or else. what a load of tosh, No this time the truth will out ande then the Police wether they like it or not will be compelled to investigate not sweep it under the carpet.

    Politicians show some respect if all you don.t want all you name to be call

  29. ROSEAU VALLEY
    May 29, 2014

    Two issues attract our attention in this story.

    1. The clients of the lawyer are collectively the Ministers of the Cabinet and the Government of Dominica; and

    2. Lennox’s noble and well meaning statement, “There can be no honor in a government that harbors rapist ministers and upholds extortion of sexual services from young people seeking the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse.”

    With respect to (1) above, perhaps Mr. Lawrence would wish to educate us on the status of our law in terms of the legal standing of Cabinet as a body of Ministers collectively in filing a law suit of defamation against a private citizen.

    The questions that arise for consideration are can a Cabinet of elected members as a group have a cause of action in defamation and therefore can Cabinet successfully sue a citizen?

    It would appear that Lord Keith of Kinkel, Lord Griffiths, Lord Goff of Chieveley, Lord Browne-Wilkinson and Lord Woolf, have answered the questions in the negative in the English case of Derbyshire County Council v Times Newspaper et al [1993] 2 W.L.R 449, H.L, which involved the balance between public interest in freedom of speech and protection of the reputation of an authority or body of officials. The issue considered was whether local and/or central government authorities are entitled to maintain action in defamation before the court.

    The Court of Appeal held that the plaintiff (the County) could NOT bring the action for libel. In dismissing the appeal, the court held,
    “since it was of the highest public importance that a democratically elected governmental body should be open to uninhibited public criticism, and since the threat of civil actions for defamation would place an undesirable fetter on the freedom to express such criticism, it would be contrary to the public interest for institutions of central or local government to have any right at common law to maintain an action for damages for defamation; and that, accordingly, the plaintiff was NOT entitled to bring an action for libel against the defendants, and its statement of claim would be struck out.”

    With respect to the second issue cited above, it suffices to say that every Dominican, including Labourites, UWPites, Cabinet members, parliamentarians and residents of the Roseau Valley, Roseau South, Roseau Central and particularly Roseau North constituencies must and ought to support the noble statement of Mr. Linton that “there can be no honor in a government [any government] that harbors rapist ministers and upholds extortion of sexual services from young people seeking the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse”.
    Why would anyone quarrel with such a statement is beyond RV’s comprehension. It is therefore difficult to appreciate the rushed and misguided conclusion arrived at by Mr. Lennox Lawrence that the said words were understood to mean, that his clients, all Ministers of Cabinet of the Government of Dominica, are rapists and the Cabinet of the Government of Dominica harbors rapists.

    Respectfully
    Roseau Valley

In terms of harassment against Linton that a cheap shot on part of DLP Linton was not found guilty of that claim and this cannot and should not be held against him.

    Lastly, all this is hoopla by Tony and the DLP guard dogs is to deviate from the real issue at hand >>> THE MISUSE AND ABUSE OF POWER by gov ministers.

    I can guarantee, when this settles down, we will all realise the important issue that was supposed to be dealt with has disappeared…..Gov ministers will then continue to misuse and abuse their power…..continue to give women the option of “your body” or “no assistance”, simply because much of energy was put into every other story RATHER THAN THE ORIGINAL ISSUE WHICH WAS RAISED, THE MISUSE N ABUSE OF POWER BY GOV MINSTERS……….

    In the real world if such allegations were made against any political figures there would have been an inquiry set up to look into these allegations; so why Tony did not encourage his supremo to spend a million dollars to do just that. It would have been monies well spent. The truth would be revealed and those hypocrites would shut up once an for all; when allegations were made against a priest did not the church set up an inquiry? what makes our political baboons believe (like Sparrow said) “they can violate the law and have the law protect them same time”.

    It seems that we are so ignorant of the law here in Dominica. One cannot say as the like and hurt people and their families and expect them not to seek redress. The court is there so Linton must prove the allegation laid out.

    On another note it appears that Linton as mentioned in the letter has previous for such behaviors. It appears that the allegation is well documented. These men are so desperate for the support of women that they are all saying as the like, how they like and when they like. People here must understand that we live in a law-abiding country and I am so happy for the court as a place for me to seek redress. Lenox to has the court to seek redress for the allegation made by the attorney in the letter.

      UWP I agree with you people saying what they want when they want how they want without limits especially on the animal show; they call women ‘that kind of woman’; they call them ‘baby machine’; they call them ‘good for nothing only making children for all kind of different man’ What in your mind can be more insulting and humiliating? but it does not stop there ; others call people kakaroach, kakador, terrorist , pigs, flies and all kinds of other dehuminizing names they even call Mr. Mano an arsonist- and insinuated that he may have been the one that burn down his own house and for you and others like you that is alright; then if such is the case then the word rapist should have yno effect on you so why are you all getting so uptight.

        Come on, what are you really saying? The fact here is whether you are DLP, UWP or DFP when you say whaever you want and one is aggrived, he/she must have a place of redress and this is through the courts. Unfortunately or foryunately as you may want to put it, depending on your political affiliation, the discussion her is what Lennox said. Whether someone said something in the past that was wrong, this doesn’t justify what Lenox said without evidence. He must have his evidence and if he does, then he is ok. In the absence of evidence his action will be seen as being dishonest, deceptive and a ploy to gain political advantage by any means necessary.

    The media houses reporting stories from desperate politicians must try to gather all the facts and not just only quote these individuals when they make these outlandish statements on their political platforms. Mr. Linton knows why he has suddenly jumped out on this topic now on an unfounded allegation which obviously was not pursued by the law authorities due to a lack of merit. What is clear however and can be verified as a matter of public record is that of Mr. Linton being accused at a former workplace of the similar offense for which he is now accusing ministers.

These men (UWP, DLP, DFP) are politicians and they are fallible. They are capable and will do wrong things. I will excuse none of they but wouldn’t accuse anyone of them without evidence to gain political advantage.

    I’ve said it before and I will say it a 100 times … this is a very serious issue and one that should be taken seriously as it is happening in both public and private sector. Having said that, if I were advising the government, I’d say:

    1. Make a statement to the public (not via an widely disliked attorney but from the head of government).
    2. Empathize and show sincerity
    3. Declare the seriousness at which these allegations are being taken and a full investigation launched
    4. If claims are unsubstantiated, legal actions will be pursued for libel/slander; if true however, the pep will be dealt with – including dismissal
    5. Reassure the public that the government cares.

    Parry, I would advise the Ministers of Government, both male and female, they should take a second look at Mr. Linton’s statements, considering the contexts of the word prostitute used. Mr. Linton never said young girls were prostitutes. He used the word prostitute as a verb, to prostitute. Their is a difference between calling someone a prostitute and referring to someone who prostitutes something, i.e the capability to do something better, eg.” many felt he was prostituting his talent by playing football instead of cricket.” Parry should also remind Mr. Lawrence that he has, on several occasions, said Mr. Linton has not worked for years. Therefore, where are the $1 million going to come from.

    This action, is that of desperate despicable persons, who under normal circumstances would not be able to make those accusations in any court in the OECS. So as a way of having to say down the road that this silly accusation against Lennox is documented in court records.
    Make no mistake people, they know that this supposed suit has as much as a snowball chance in hell of reaching any serious hearing, so they must muddy the waters. Cast unsubstantiated and irresponsible accusations all in an attempt to divert the people’s attention that the UWP’s message is resonating with the electorate, and the sight of that massive gathering of the youths on May 25, at St. Joseph, really overshadowed their rally at which they paid people to attend.
    Furthermore, the fact that following this gathering the news wires were all congratulating the young people for a well-organized event, in which most of the presentations are been repeated, for quality, and content; unlike the Deception Lies, Propaganda (DLP) whose attempt fizzled like a fart in a gale of wind.
    It is sad indeed, that that is the extent of the intellectual capacity of those who wallow in this mud of filthy, in the name of political pekon. But again, those are the faces of NEW LABAAR,, who demonstrate a total inability to engage the electorate on substantive issues, and the lack of basic understanding of basic economics.
    Of course, while the average housewife understands that while the cost of living is rising continuously, the meager earnings remain the same, and while inflation grows at 4 percent each year, the government gives 2 percent to public servants, but gave themselves more than 50 percent increase some time ago, thus making sure they were inflation proof for at least 10 years. They rather not discuss these facts, because I am convinced that they lack the ability to comprehend them, far less talk to the nation about them.

    CHANGE is inevitable, this little sideshow for the benefit of their favorite callers to their programs, which have become irrelevant, CANNOT AND WILL NOT STOP CHANGE.

        Defamation imply’s disgrace, or to harm the reputation of someone by libel, or slander. There is no Libel, or slander in the comments Lennox made, since they were not directed at any one individual; and that is elementry. Just because someone has a track record in practicing law, does not make any, and everything they say which sound legal correct.

        Whereas I would prefer Tony to represent me if I had the need for a layer in Dominica, I can tell him to his face, in this matter, he does not have a case; and he knows it too!

      We start crying already. This case will turn on the law if in fact a libel suite is filed. The e court of law is not a public rally, where people are moved by emotive moment and say anything. A court of law CONSIDER EVIDENCE (as provided by witnesses, individuals, documents etc) and POINTS OF LAW). The same law that orders society. For if we all had to do or say as we like, few of us would be left standing, physically and psychologically at that. It is the law that governs society. It we remove the rule of law, and allow each one of us to do and say as we like or feel (like how Lennox felt at on Sunday), the only expectation has to be chaos. So the threat is to go to court and to compel Mr. Linton to bring the evidence he has in abundance (young ladies, other women etc. in support of his claims that Ministers of government are prostituting our young ladies for benefits from the public purse. Let us not forget too, that this latest turn of events has its genesis in St. Marteen when Mr. Linton advanced the view that “our young ladies are P-R-O-S-T-I-T-U-T-I-N-G for favors from the Treasury. When under immense pressure to retract, he went to St. Joe, told the young ladies that he loved them, did not take back the St. Marteen statement but adjusted the same rhetoric to now suggest that Ministers of government are prostituting our young ladies for favor. He did not single out any minister. Did not call any by name. He however collectively enjoined all ministers of government (male and female) in his remarks. He is now challenging further to “bring it on” as he has several witnesses who are prepared to come forward and testify. If the witnesses are found to be credible and truthful, then hats off to Mr. Linton. Conversely, if the witnesses are proven to be telling untruths, are not credible, making up stories as they go along before the court, then woe be unto Mr. Linton.

      It does not matter how much we believe, or Mr. Linton believe that dastard act is taking place in Dominica by MInisters, he has to prove his case. The court of law is not one where “Blessings” or “Weh Weh, Weh” can call and use all kind of superlatives or adjectives to bring their mostly partisan clouded, points across. What the court of law thrive on is the principle that those who level the accusation must prove their point. The accused has nothing to prove.

      Mr. Linton as an aspiring Prime Minister must know that you cannot dispense with the law on the whims and fancies of anyone. Even in a state of emergency when the ordinary law (mostly human rights) are suspended, there are still laws that governs a state of emergency. Governments can be taken to task for violating the laws as it applies even in situations where there is a state of emergency.

      My point in all this is to say that the law will and must take its course. How this matter advances, like every other law suite in our system of governance has to be guided along on the principles of existing law and applicable rules. We can sleep on the talk show, ridicule each other, contribute cash and or kind, call each other name, elections will come and go, but the case will spin on the law. What the law say about libel and slander. That is where the case will go if it is filed. Don’t forget Thompson did threaten legal action against certain individuals for slandering and libeling his good name. More than six weeks on, we are still waiting for the bailiff.

      Did I hear Lennox had left Dominica before he was served and that he would have been away form Dominica for the next two or so weeks. Considering the short time in which the flight bookings were made (according to media reports), was that move calculated/designed to avoid being served during the statutory time frame?

      Do you know that at some stage of the proceedings long before it reaches the judge all parties in the matter must disclose to each other their evidence? There will not be any last minute statement or witness evidence that the other party is not privy. So we can fight on DNO, we can puff on the radio, we can call each other names on the platform, we can curse each other to the high heavens. that means nothing to the case (if filed).

    I am on record as saying and stating that this corrupt Labour party consists of 21 DUNCE CATS. Many people have predicted that before their HUGE FALL at the next general election, some of them have to fight (exchange blows) in public. When your work is evil, evil follows you. Whenever you impoverish a country and turn its people into beggars, your life must be a drag, AND CONFUSION MUST TAKE OVER IN YOUR ORGANISATION.
    Who ever thought a man Skerrit and his acolytes, zealots, fanatics, lapdogs, etc, called a high school drop out, a man that must get into the political ring to be taught a lesson by MIGHTY SKERRIT, a man tht cannot smile, would have 21 DUNCE CATS, 2 SENIOR COUNSELS, THOUSANDS OF FOLLOWERS AND SEVERAL OTHER LOUD MOUTH GREEDIES, totally and absolutely concfused, and discombobulated?.
    My workers supporters, Skerrit and his ilks find that Linton and Team Dominica is gathering momentum too quickly. The crowd at St Joseph on the 25th STUNNED THEM, the greatness and eloquence of Lintons speech DID DAMAGE TO THEIR ALREADY EMPTY BRAINS,, and Monnels speech drilled nails in their coffins.
    So they said, “””Lennox has to be stopped, and this is how it has to start.”””
    This lawsuit is just a distraction, a smoke screan to SLOW THE PROGRESS OF Lennox and Team Dominica: STUPPESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THIS IS WHAT I WANT from Lennnox and Team Dominica.
    a. Keep on planning. The DUNCE CATS cannot plan.
    b. Let’s go to Petite Savanne or roseau South soon next. A lot is happening in these two constituencies.
    c. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THE DUNCE CATS They are folding.
    d. Speak the truth at all cost
    e.Plan another MASSIVE yout activity to be held soon

    This is nonsense. By listing the all the ministers, is Lennox Lawrence saying that they’ve all been aggrieved by Lennox Linton’s statement? Because for the case to proceed, they must give a deposition saying how they’re aggrieved, which would mean that they would have to say that they took Lennox’s statement as a particular reference to allegations made against them – and they would have to tell the court who accused them, when we’re they accused, and what they were accused of doing.

      DA is al screwed up. Gov’t is said to be corrupt businesswise ,now this sexual allegations (unless sex is business in DA too.)Lol!opposition as well priest backsliding,
      Look like everybody want & need sexual favours/services. We were always corrupt * love sexual abuse or did the coming of the ltinas to our shores change/crate a sexual revolution am tempted to ask. But I know better, that arm of corruption has always been there.
      Police men had and have a high rate of accusations and justifiably so.Back in the 50’s most children born in DA had police dads it dissappeared in the 70 and revived in the 80’s & 90’s. There is even a joke of a lady who visited a police top brass to seek assistance in obtaing child support from one of his subordinated only to be told she had sexy eyes.The top cop went on(it is allegded to have told the female that he would love to see those sexy eyes under candle light during dinner.

    Dominicans Mayo was a victim of rape ….please read:
    Mayo Angelou
    “At age 7, Angelou was raped by her mother’s boyfriend, who was later beaten to death in an assault that some believed was carried out by Angelou’s uncles. The trauma of the rape and her assailant’s death left Angelou mute for six years.”
    The psychological scar, pain and dysfunctionality this rape brings to children is a very sad affair.
    Tony Astaphans and government ministers and civil servants must be aware of this. These government people should be championing the cause of women and ensure that policies are in place for their protection.
    Trying to hide cases and to be is denial is not helping the cause. We know of many cases.
    The politics of the DLP is questionable, filled with corruption practices and now we hear of taking advantage of our vulnerable and poor children and families,

    I am confused, totally confused, according to Blessings, flabbergasted. You are suing Mr. Linton for $1 million, when for months you have been telling Dominicans and the world by extension, he has not been working for years, no one will employ him, he is broke. What does an allegation made by an employee as regards to sexual harassment to which he was never charged in the courts has to do with an alleged rapist in the Sketitt led Administration. You have connected the alleged sexual harassment to the allegation of rape as part of your case. Their has been many allegations of corruption in Government, maybe, Mr. Linton should consider suing the Government for not putting in place the enabling environment to better the economy so that he could find a job to support his family. Many Dominicans are of the opinion that Tony’s tirade is directed at two Ministers of Government and Mr. Linton is being used as a scape goat, only time will tell.

      I was under the impression, Mr. Lennox Linton was referring to a particular Minister in the Skeritt led cabinet. I noticed the names of Gloria Shillinford and Justina Charles are included. When we refer to prostitutes, usually we are referring to women, and the rapists we are referring to the men. Maybe in the Skeritt led cabinet, Ministers of Government are different.

      “A good politician would apologize, isolate the distraction, and evaluate the disarray within party ranks.”

      Warrington, are you mad? To apologize is to simply say I am sorry! Are you suggesting that Lennox should say he is sorry for nothing? The man has not offended anyone; the Labor Party simply does not want to hear his rhetoric on the matter, because they fear if the people caught on to what he is saying that may lead to their defeat at the poles. As a result they have gone on the defensive, if we make plenty of noise about suing, that will breath fear into them, thus they will be muzzled.

      Do you remember the term corruption which was used against the UWP more than fifteen years ago that was not true? Remember they the Labor Party Members said when they took power, they were going to prosecute all of the UWP members in government and would send them to jail because of all the money they stole from the government treasury? That lie worked against the UWP.

      The whole thing was a lie, they even claimed that Edison James had this large Manson in Barbados, they the labor party members said he stole the money used to build his Palace in Barbados, a Palace which does not exists, and never existed. Edison James did not sue anyone; we however knew Edison James prior to be coming Prime Minister of Dominica; it appears he was much more secured finically before he entered into politics, however, we believe he is much poorer now than prior to him becoming Prime Minister.

      We cannot say the same for such people who’s only job was working on the police force as a police officer, nevertheless such people have built a million dollar house: how can one accomplish that on a ministers salary in less than twenty years; that is something that should be investigated. Assuming that his house cost a million dollars, and he is in Government, for only an hundred and eighty months which is “fifteen years”, and he manage to save a $1,000,000.00 in fifteen years: hence, 1,000,000.00/180 = 5,555.57. So, that means that this minister is making $5,555.57 per month. Now we know that no ordinary minister of government in Dominica takes home five thousand dollars plus per month; and even if they did, what happens to his living expenses. He can’t save it all you know.

      How many of the UWP ministers were they able to prosecute, and convict, they libel, and slander them all, to this day not one of the former ministers was charge with a crime. This rapist thing is a different situation, because there are women who may come forward and identify the perpetrators of the sexual crimes.

      So why should you suggest the man apologize when all of us are aware that many of these so called ministers do indulged in that type of conduct.

      Any man who would apologize because they are been intimidated, or coerced into apologizing would have to be less than a man, therefore he would not be in a position to lead a country; he would be a wimp!

      Do you want a wimp to be the leader of our country?

If you say the “Cabinet” you are singling out EVERY member of the cabinet.

      The mere act of asking the woman to meet you anywhere else other than the government office is an indication of indecent intent. Anywhere else in the world a minister of government would be fired for such disgraceful behaviour but in Dominica we celebrate it and denegrade the unfortunate, desperate and needy women. Shame on you!

      If you make advancements on her and she refuses then that is rape. If you make advancements on her and let her know that her job position or materials that she received are on the line then that is abuse of power. You are not suppose to make prepositions like that on the job because it will make her feel like she is obligated to give you something in return.

      The Trinidad PM dismissed ministers for that same nonsense so Dominica is not unique in that regard. Even Pres Clinton a few decades ago had is name dragged in sexual malee,while in office; men of the cloth also have been found wanting – the pastor from the North etc so men and women in high and low places always get entangled in that kind of behavior but I totally agree it is deplorable and it is expected that honorable men should do honorable things.

  112. Labor Power!
    May 28, 2014

    Mr. Astaphan, you need to stop embarrassing Dominicans and exposing our government. Tony, what you are doing is causing more harm than good. Tony, you are now causing the entire world to know that our elected government ministers have been accused of this sort of thing. Not only that, but we know very well that Sunday was not the first time Lennox made mention of this very thing. It started in June 2013, after a young lady made a report to the police of her experience with a minister of government. Lennox reported that a year ago and up to this day, neither you, nor the police, nor the PM have done a thing to ensure justice and send a strong message to other minister. So to keep talking about it now and making threats to Lennox, is just putting the government in very bad light and you need to stop that.

    • May 29, 2014

      But what kind of man is the PM why would he allow Tony and Lennox Lawrence to even come to the air waves which such rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish that tells us the PM really dont care for the people muchless the women, if he did he would ask that his men throw water on the bun fire, because it doesnt reflex on him as a PM.

    Tony, you are not a government Minister and you are just creating more trouble and embarrassment for Skerrit and his cabinet. Whether you think those ministers are guilty or not, the fact that you are literally pouring more fuel on this thing, since WE ALL know that Skerrit and most of his ministers WILL NEVER appear before the court for something that is so embarrassing and degrading, In fact whether Lennox is right or not, the fact that the names of government ministers are called in such a mess is already very embossing. So Tony, to make threats and then try to delay the case or settle in private like the situation with Matt, would really put the DLP in an extremely bad position.

      Is it alleged that a report was made in June 2013 or was the report made?

      I do get what you’re saying though; but he based his accusations on the said report being made – this report should have been investigated and the minister (if innocent) cleared – then there would be no reason for Mr Linton to substantiate his claims. The PM should have ensured that that report was investigated…

      There must have been one of two outcomes:
      1) you did what you had to do and got your money/position and went home . Then you went to tell Matt about your experience. Not the police, but Matt. Because if you are reporting a rape, one goes to the police. To discuss an experience which you want to share with the wold, you go to the radio station.

      2) you did what you were asked but you did not get the job/or money, or it was not as much/as high as you expected. So you felt used, maybe feeling others got more than you for the same ‘frisky’.

      Either way you have no shame and do not realize that if you did not want to be a part of it you could make a scene in the office, scream, accuse and report right on the scene and nobody would doubt you. But bypassing the police and going on Matt, does not convince anyone that you were ‘ forced upon’.
