Anette Sanford speaks out on alleged $120,000 DLP offer

United Workers Party (UWP) Candidate for the Salybia Constituency, Anette Thomas-Sanford, has shed some more light on a recent statement which she made about an alleged $120,000 offer made to her by strategists of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), including Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

She made the revelation during her launching ceremony held on the weekend and made it clear that as “a patriot” who stands “on principle” she was not for sale.

According to a statement posted on her Facebook Page today [Thursday], Thomas- Sanford claimed that she had a meeting with Prime Minister Skerrit at Castle Comfort in the presence of 3 other persons whom she named.

She said she has already contacted the police and informed them of the sensitive information that she will be releasing in terms of audio recordings made to her under the direction and with the blessings of the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

Thomas-Sanford also begged the police to grant protection to her and her family, “especially my two children and my husband.”

A full video of her explanation is available below:

    As a married man,if you see a young girl alone on the road, you say nothing to her .If she greets you answer but don’t stop. Whether it was a PM or other professional body ,you observed the person. The PM was accompanied by the Best Barrister in the land, because he treated ms Sanford as a professional but, the lady had other ideas. Husband should come in and said, this job does not suit you, find something else to make a living. you fall before you start.

    @Anette Sanford, Just a little advice to you make sure you have enough evidence to your story in case Mr Skerrit decides to take what you said any further you may not have a leg to stand on. I also noticed some of your story lines have changed and why it took you so long to come forward? Something is fishy about your story!!!

    I don’t believe you Annette Sanford I think you telling lies that sound like a another of so-called Workers manufacturers lies just because prime minister Skerrit took those piranhas by surprise calling the general election, now they running scared Labour has them boxed up no where to hide lazy corrupt suckers.

      You dont believe the lady then. Well this is a serious accusation the PM and even the failed priest can sue her. The PM not slow in doin that, he can put Tony the midget on the case even, money no problem. So I’m waiting to see that happen but remember she can question these people in court, cross examine them under oath my brother. You think Skerrit’s balls big enough for that?

      Your intentions were clear Miss. You were escorted in a white jeep and brought to a private residence and no electronic devices were allowed.

      If your claims are true then what makes you different from the pm? I’m sure that you were told what you were inviting to discuss but regardless you went. Whether you went with other intentions you did which means you were in agreement with whatever….moreover you shook your head as he spoke….nobody cares what was in your mind whether you oppose in your heart…You still didn’t leave or soeak up. You are a fraud!!!

    Mrs. Anette, you are young and you seem graceful and decent. Let me ask you? Have you thoroughly examined your candidacy the important values it holds? I am not posing this question to anyone but you.

    According to your husband’s political history in the Kalinago election he has been losing the election. Have you considered why this is so that you may be more suitable?

    Indeed I think it’s a fair question that has crossed all of our minds. You may have been the best selection of those presented for Kalinago Chief but do you have the mind and the heart for politics?

    Were you not allowed to bring a witness to the meeting with the pm? If he did infact have the meeting with you did he not write what the meeting will entail and did you notify your husband and party members? And lastly, why do you think that now is the right time and not sooner to speak up? Were you weighing the odds?

    This seems to be pure political mischief by a young woman preying on her Kalinago ancestry to whip up interest in her candidacy. Her further recording clearly established her motive – asking for a bribe to be paid her as requested, and discredits her claim to honour. Where is the corroboration that the Prime Minister had anything to do with her? I await this for she may be looking down the barrel of a bribery and extortion criminal charge if she cannot provide more than information rooted in whim and fantasy. To plainly claim the Prime Minister this and the Prime Minister that is unsustainable and seemingly draws her deeper into a plot hatched to deceive and extort. She better be careful with her part in this in her desperation to draw empathy toward her lineal roots.

You said clearly that all recording device was taking from you at the meeting. Now you are saying. You are prepared to release an audio recording of the meeting. Something about this is not factual.

    Hi my dear
    If Mr. Skerrit did that he should not have done so. That is unethical though not illegal. That seems to be the way of politics nowadays, just remember Sam Raphael’s revelations. Different circumstances but just as wrong and maybe even more wrong.
    I note that you seem to have even copied some of Sam’s strategy to protect himself from attack by alerting the police, if you did so.

    I note that you also borrowed some of Dr. Pascal’s call to your ancestors, hoping that they will be pleased with you. Very dramatic indeed!

    Now that brain of mine is never satisfied until things make sense. So you are a real kalinago brave! You go to a house with four men. They are trying to compromise you with corrupt offers. You stay there, you listen, you play along. Real brave girl.

    They restricted your entry with any electronic devices but somehow you had a hidden recorder. I guess somewhere on your person perhaps?

    • RandyX
      November 18, 2019

My god, if u was so Firm, strong and solid with the administration of your party you would never go to a meeting with my Honourable Prime Minister. Why would you even think of going to the house of Mr. Lawrence to hear more lies from The PM? Answer That.. My Lady u wanted a better deal not $120,000.00. My dear lady, from the statement you made you are truly not a ready yet for any positive development for our beloved Dominica. Go Ask God to forgive you!

      To continue
      just like your other colleagues who feel they are the only ones with democratic rights, you feel free to publish your dramatic story about Mr. Skerrit and company (which is your right of course) all over the world, but somehow you become a young Kalinago victim when a letter that you wrote yourself is also published which raises questions about your claim.

      I must say you are learning well even before you start your political career. There are people in your party who have sat on the radio for over fifteen years blasting everybody from President to priest with all kinds of allegations.

      Amazingly though, the persons attacked must not even defend themselves because when they do the perpetrators of the attacks suddenly become victims.

      The next five years should be very interesting whoever wins, because if you people think you are going to do to the high and mighty gentleman what you all have been free to do to Mr. Skerrit for so long. Wake up now folks!

Because of your undereducated leadership, political ideology and science is beyond his 🧢 capability. There’s absolutely nothing ethically wrong with silencing or paying off you opponents. Do the research, on the battlefield you cannot tell your opponent where to attack. The motto is be prepared, these little distractions are too numerous on the UWP camp. Move on the DLP are addressing the issues on, health care, commerce, education and the other common topics. Get a strategist to formulate plans not innuendos. The people want to hear your plans not your pity parties grips.

    what I need to contribute going forward is :

    What ever responsible government to open the president’s gate to share an office and an apartment for the Kalinago Chief in the President’s palace for officialdom and representation of all the Kalinago people who are not only living in the territory but all over the country. In other words the presidency should be shared with the Kalinago people.

    This is headlining the reparatory justice package for the Indigenous and African people

  35. JUST SAYING.....
    November 15, 2019

    Annette has no principle and in the first place, should be a shamed of coming out with this. I say this because, if you know the man and his party is corrupt why on earth would you even think of accepting to go and have a meeting with him. You went there and it did not work out that’s why, you came out with the story if it had worked out, we would never know. You are just as bad and corrupt as you say they are, “mien bet mien poule”

  36. The old Prophet
    November 15, 2019

    This guy has corrupted and destroyed everything on island to the point that many have lost conscience and soul. But let me remind us that it was because of corruption the flood of Noah destroyed the entire earth Gen 6:11 -13 “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”

    12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
    I have no doubt that it was because of the vast evil and corruption of Skerrit, we as a nation, including the church by accepted we got a warning from Erika followed by Maria. But as strong a warning as these two storms were, we got even more corrupt and Skerrit feels now that we are in a better position to be bribed. But my people if we make a mistake and allow Skerrit to steal this election again, let me put the nation on notice that what will come will be far worse than Maria but, if we resist the Devi we and our country will experience peace and prosperity.

    For her courage; her honesty; her clarity: her humbleness: her general deportment; her moral fortitude; her selflessness, Mrs Anette Stanford is one of my heroes. She unequivocally rebuffed Skerrit and his bribery. Dominicans should hold this erudite, most honest lady in very high esteem. Some many educated and popular Dominicans have sold their souls and fallen for thirty pieces of silver from Skerrit but Mrs. Stanford would partake in none of it. She is a beacon of light and hope in the ocean of bribery and evil doings by the Skerrit-DLP led atrocious dictatorship. She is a role model for all of us. May God richly bless her soul and keep her family safe.

  44. Help Us Lord
    November 15, 2019

    What an embarrassment to hear a person give detailed information on how the prime Minister of Dominica, was involved in a plot to bribe her and we treating it like a big joke. In any other country including China, if such thing happened there would be an arrest because bribery or attempted bribery is a SERIOUS CRIME! For those of us that follow sports, players are banned for years for accepting bribe and bribers are fined and jailed for bribing or attempting to bribe a person. With that kind of information given by me Ms. Sanford, why is Skerrit still out there bribing more voters? Why has his Police Commissioner issued a warrant for his arrest? The hurtful thing is church leaders and members will say it’s just another rumor. But these people preach the holy Bible and use rumers to judge their members. For example the apostle Paul in 1 Corin. Chapters 5-11states that it was reported to him that there was fornication and division and he believed it. That was a rumour. God help us lord

You are not the only one with ancestors blood, your blood isn’t more precious than the blood of my African ancestors, so drop that sorry story a..line.
    You story isn’t believable or credible. Why would you blame Fredrick for exposing your lies in the letter, you wrote it! What role did you play in getting exposed? It is simple your feeble and untruths were exposed. In other words your character, moral values and self worth are being challenged. Plain and simple, You looked at scoreboard, you saw your position as the underdog. So you look to score a home run, but the ball was a rigged 🏈 and you became the laughingstock.

    Plain and simple, why were you at a meeting if you are not for sale. The people of the Kalinago rejected as their chief and Skerrit rejected you, therefore, you are scornful woman 👩. Being a professional and a educated person you know that’s the norm to negotiate. But the problem was you lied, until the letter surfaced. You were asking for your job back, nothing wrong with that, but you went on further and asked for other forms of elevation. What the hell you think your interpretation was? Now again you are lying saying you want police protection! Woman whatever little character and dignity you have left, please preserve it as a mother, wife, daughter and most of all a woman. For years you have built a genuine reputation now preserve what is left. After the election win or loose your character is blemish, just move on because explanation will bring more punch holes in your story, because you were negotiating! You wanted the position of Pal Rep you were not chosen move on gracefully

    As far as I see it everybody who attended labour meetings and supporting labour in this election is covered by an evil spell.I even see some people calling themselves christians fighting for Skerrit so hard on DNO. Not everyone who says Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of God.To be a christian you have to be christ like and to be like christ you have to be (converted). no converted christian is putting their neck on a block for an unrighteous or evil person. you cannot lose your life for evil and gain it back in Jesus Christ. So I say to some people on here who says that they are born again christ look alike go back to the throne of God and recomitt yourselves to him he is faithful and just to forgive you. do not continue in your track towards election and repent after election.now is the accepted time now is the day of salvation.and not because I did not mentioned UWP do not think I am for them.we have to use our hiring and firing powers. do not leave a man in power so long.

You may not like hearing it, you may have issues with some of the things they have done or you may be disgruntled about a few things but a change to the uwp would be the biggest mistake Dominicans would ever make. They are more organized and has the most seasoned leader and you Dominicans cannot afford to take a gamble on this one.

    Skerrit thinks his dirty, filthy money can buy every aspiring political candidate in Dominica. But, there are a few who still have their integrity and dignity firmly intact like Mrs. Anette Stanford. If anyone had any doubt as to the widespread extent of Skerrit’s corruption, Anette’s story should squash all doubts. As poverty rises; as police, nurses and other public servants desperate cries of a salary increase are stubbornly ignored; as pensioners suffer, Skerrit is spending the people’s money willy-nilly. It’s no wonder that Dominica is Double Blank in the pack of dominoes. On this forum; on most local media houses; on social media; on the political rostrum, Anette will be vilified by Skerrit’s sycophants and by DLP’s fanatics. Forgive them Lord for they singing for their breakfast, lunch and supper. Anette, may God give you the courage to stay above the noise. You have done Dominica well. Continue to shed light on the pitch darkness in government. Proud of you!

    Very, Very Interesting. Sister Annette, I am impressed with your clarity and eloquence. I trust that we can see you in Government from December 7, 2019; I hope you are able to strongly and purposefully get your message across to your constituents and they will be convinced of your selflessness by truly putting your country, conscience and people before self. Lady Annette, I am proud of you and you have won me over. May the spirits of your ancestors continue to guide you as you go forth and the lord (Jah) will lead you to the promised land. You will be in my prayers.

    Thanks for exposing those rogues but I am concerned about your safety and that of your family. Did the police offer you any protection? Through what channel did you request protection? Did you write to a specific person? How was the request made? The only shortcoming in your talk was, I believe, you should have named the police officer through whom the request was made; The goons will be after you and your family.

    After today I shall NEVER again refer to Roosevelt Skerrit as Prime Minister or Honorable but rather by his new name ‘The Briber. A briber is one who pays people to participate in a known crime.

    The Skerrit President
    Roseau, Dominican.
    Dear Mr Savarin ,

    News broke today that West Indies cricketers Nicholas Pooran, was banned for four games after he was caught scratching the ball with his finger during the 3rd ODI between Windies and Afghanistan. He was caught cheating and the ICC charged him. Mr. Savarin Mr. Skerrit was exposed by Annette Sanford, for attempting to bribe her. Sir, that is a very serious offense under our constitution, though I don’t know it is a crime under the Skerrit constitution which he made you the president of. Sir Ms. Sanford is a smart and intelligent woman and she told us when Skerrit attempted to bribe her, who, were present and where it took place. Sir I remember when someone confessed that he was paid to burn the house of GON Emmanuel you as Security Minister said the guy had a mental problem. That’s not the case today and there5 I ask that Skerrit be removed as PM immediately!!!!

      Skerrit said it years ago but nobody believed him: NO LAW AND NO CONSTITUTION…
      Dominicans created a monster and now they can’t get rid of it again! Good luck to all you, good luck to all you greedy beggars!

    Thank you Annette for not accepting his bribe and even more so, for exposing Alibaba and his forty thieves. After I listened to the video I took note of that ……. attorney that was part of the bribe and the question I asked myself is whether is the same …….. attorney that’s is a member of our Election executive or his brother. If it is he then we definitely need to demand his resignation. I will not say much now because I want to be sure is that same …………..

      Very good point because all those who are supporting Mrs Sanford now won’t help her to pay the lawsuit. You are implicating some very powerful individuals in this, one of whom is a top lawyer in Dominica. For all those who say you have tapes, I am not sure our laws have been amended to make electronic evidence admissible in our courts. Ou belle.

    So miss Sandford said that no electronic devices were allowed at the meeting yet she also said that she was able to provide the Police with a recording of that meeting. I smell something very fishy about that statement. Election campaigning is really in full swing!

      No nothing fishy just you that your mind is not creative. I can clearly figure out how she got the recording. Maybe you are not electronic savvy enough?

      My friend, these crooks not very smart, they dont know it have other ways to get audio recording You never hear about wire tap. I’m sure they did not body search Ms. Sandford, especially she being a woman. I recognise that voice Matt play today as Remy Lawrence, one time policeman and now having that hotel near ti Bay before you reach Picard.Is a long time I suspect him involved with Possie criminal and allegedly washing their money. But never mind, is only me Toto talking but you know Dominica very small but have big ears.

    • November 15, 2019

      Why allu dont read and understand ….. when allu see it… the woman said she had a recording m.did u hear her say of what exactly??…. it come out now so now u know ..

      November 15, 2019

      No electronics being allowed doesn’t mean one cannot find means and ways of getting a recording device in. Use your imagination. She by no means had to follow those instructions. If the hosts didn’t see fit to take all measures to prevent that from happening then the joke may just be on them.

      obviously she snuck a recording device in. Common sense. Idiots.

    Now this patriotic Kalinago citizen is exposing alleged bribery by top members of the corrupt DLP.
    Bribery is a criminal offence, so let’s wait and see what the police does, and how quickly!!!
    They can pounce on Brian’s home early in the morning, just to intimidate, but the real tricksters are caught now..
    Let’s see how swift the police get activated.!

      Again the lady was outsmarted. If you gonna be a politician, you must have have the brains of a politician. DLP didn’t do nothing illegal. Political term, Kill and conquer! You guys are slow, politician buy out their opponents all the time.? You pay your opponent to squash their campaign or join yours. Example in the VI Governor Trumbull paid out Mapp and Dona-strong paid of Chucky. Woman be quiet that’s a political strategy. You just took the bait. Sorry % you were outsmarted again %.

    Like i said before a man who would switch party for a car and some money is one who from inception showed he had no values nor principles. I have always said skerrit is a weak man and a coward. He has shown how easily he is influenced by money greed and power. I think that has driven hime to some level of insanity. This boy going loose his mind when he is defeated. All he has resorted to are lies, manipulation, and deceit. Nothing is given or done out of the heart. You give a man a house and material things when they poor and desperate and they think you god. Skerrit has used our weakness for his perverse enjoyment. religion, the old, the single mothers, the young the not so intelligent. Every weakness in our society manipulated. The commissioner of police and a few hand picked police that cannot pass a pre school test get high ranks. As a result thier alligence is to the man not country. Some of us catching on too late cause our society is almost destroyed. Selfishness took over.

      Very interesting comment and observation worth noting: Please read on and note, what is thought of Skerrit that many of us knew 19 years ago.
      “I have always said Skerrit is a weak man and a coward. He has shown how easily he is influenced by money, greed and power. That has driven him to some level of insanity? This boy going loose his mind when he is defeated. All he has resorted to are lies, manipulation, and deceit.”
      There you are, hope well read. Also, note that from early days Skerrit was not seen as this person with decency, decorum, intelligent, but just this spontaneous immature boy who plays with toys rather than focus on the bigger picture of life. So he got into politics as a fanfare hence now we are seeing how dangerous and clueless this Skerrit is of socio-economic development. I however also blame those blind bats who surrounded him with protection lens that he, Skerrit has failed to see. This man should have never been Prime Minister of our Dominica. Skerrit failed.

      This exact attitude, the apathy and indifference, is what has the country in this horrible state of underdevelopment and so irreparably fractured. Nobody with one cell of decency and morality should vote for severely corrupt Skerrit and his docile, bribable henchmen and women. Send them to the political cemetery for good.
