Cabinet has appointed Emmanuel Nanthan as Director of the Citizen by Investment Unit, Dominica News Online has been reliably informed.

Sources say Nanthan did not apply for the position and was basically “handpicked.”

According to the sources the post was advertised and those who applied were required to possess a Master’s Degree.

At least seven people applied for the position, including one who has been working in the department and is qualified for the job.

That person was interviewed but she did not receive the position.

“I was very surprised and disappointed that Cabinet has taken a decision to give the job to Nanthan who does not qualify for the post,” the source, which is very close to the matter told DNO.

It is alleged that Nanthan does not have a Master’s Degree.

“Nanthan did not apply for the post…he was handpicked by Cabinet,” the source said.

The source stated that Nanthan took up the post in January 2015.

Several attempts were made to get a comment from Nanthan but they were all unsuccessful.
