Leader of the United Workers Party Lennox Linton has filed an official complaint to the police about what he said is criminal trespassing on his property in Morne Daniel.
Linton told a press conference today that he wrote a letter dated October 18th to the Police Chief Daniel Carbon, asking that those who were involved in the act be investigated and charged.
On May 19th 2019, CCTV Cameras installed at Linton’s home showed a Caucasian man entering his yard and dropping off a black bag on his doorstep, but leaving with it.
There was also another video with the same man repeating the act but instead leaving the suitcase on his doorstep only to have another Caucasian man yanking it off Linton’s doorstep moments later.
The UWP claims that via their investigation they have found evidence that identifies the men as British nationals that the UWP alleges were paid by the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) to carry out what Linton called “mischief” during the elections.
“I checked the archives of my surveillance system and found that two Caucasian men in fact visited my home in the afternoon of May 19th 2019,” he said. “They made three separate attempts to pretend that a black travel bag allegedly containing $1 million was left outside my door and on each of the three occasions the said black travel bag, the content on which was never revealed was taken away by the perpetrators of the criminal conspiracy.”
Lennox continued, “No bag was left on my premises on May 19th, 2019.”
The letter further read, “I suggest to you Sir that these two British citizens should be investigated and charged with the offense of criminal trespass to my property and conspiracy with those who instructed, engaged or facilitated them to commit public mischief.”
Linton went on to say the he is satisfied that there is ample evidence.
“This is a labour party conspiracy against Lennox Linton…,” he remarked.
Linton said his party is also in the process of writing to the President, His Excellency Charles Savarin.
“For now we start with the Police Commissioner, I am in the process of writing to the President of the Commonwealth of Dominica, because on the 30th of September we wrote to the President and delivered that letter to the President’s residence on Victoria Street,” he revealed.
Linton said further that the President has since replied basically asking for evidence on the issues addressed in the letter.
“Sometime later this week we are going back to the President with evidence on what we spoke about,” Lennox explained. “He says once he sees the evidence he will be willing to facilitate a sit-down meeting with us and hopefully to engage with the government on what’s going down.”
Linton said a copy of the letter of complaint and evidence will also be sent to the British High Commissioner.
