Alleged ‘rapist ministers’ matter to begin on Monday

Linton addressing supporters on Thursday
Linton addressing supporters on Thursday

An alleged defamation case, involving United Workers Party (UWP) leader, Lennox Linton and government ministers, is expected to begin on Monday.

This was revealed by Linton at a UWP meeting in Layou on Thursday evening.

“The trial of Lennox Linton on behalf of the ministers who claim that they were called rapists begins on Monday…,’’ he said. “It will last for two weeks.”

He said two weeks for the court’s time have been set aside to deal with the case.

“Two weeks of the court’s time has been set aside for this trial so it is coming up on Monday, and again we will submit ourselves to the process of the court and we will abide by the rulings of the court.”

Linton was sued by the ministers following remarks he made at a UWP “Youth In It Too” rally held at St. Joseph on Sunday, May, 25th 2014 which he referred to alleged activities by government ministers as rape.

In his statement made during the 2014 rally, he said, “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.”

The ministers subsequently filed a defamation lawsuit and Linton was also asked to pay $1-million in compensation.

Meantime, Linton told his supporters at the Layou meeting last night that payments of £ 20,000 are supposed to be made to Chattered Accountant, Keiron Pinard-Byrne this month.

“By the 22nd we are supposed to make this payment of £20,000,” he stated. “We will do our best, if we get it done we get it done, if we don’t get it done then we don’t get it done, but we will try our best and we will take it one step at a time.”

He added, “Understand what we are doing, we are being faithful to our responsibility as law abiding citizens, to abide by the decisions of court even though we may not agree with them.”

  1. pledging black is white
    February 15, 2016

    People pledging black is white to support this irresponsible individual and his tongue. What is really wrong with this? Why can’t the radio station pledge to help sick people, people that are in need? people that genuinely need help? Of what benefit are these pledges for welfare of the country?
    Pledging to help someone who was found guilty for defamation? Why can’t they pledge to help this individual to keep quiet?
    I will never understand this. One day the “pledgers” who are pledging will wee pee nay and stop.

    • @pledging black is white February 15, 2016

      I can perceive your sentiment because it mine as well. Those very same people who have crying down Dominica and Dominican–claiming darkness and doom for us–are the same people who are now able to afford to give thousands of dollars to one man-the charge-for the wrongs he has done; that is just not fair.

      but that is what Jesus is saying here: @ Luke 6:32-34 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back.

      • Through that principle above, Jesus is speaking about the certain things we do to claim love in our deed –but does God justify those certain kinds of actions? The answer is NO!

        Most of that giving of money has nothing to do with helping Linton to pay his debts –it has more to do with his followers wanting to prove something positive in him; because they have no other way of doing so.

        But they are fighting a losing battle; for when God disapproves an action–no man can approve it. Love must justify the good things which we do, otherwise that work is still futile.

        I am saying that there is a lot of futility in that giving of money to pay the cost of one man’s wrong –an action which will encourage him to continue with his wrong doings–it is just too unfortunately, that it is the reputation of my Dominica which continues to be degraded; as the flowers of Lennox Linton continue to aid him in doing so. But they will have their rewards.

  5. Words CAN do harm!
    February 14, 2016

    “We” is everyone who encouraged him – in any form – to say what he said that brought on the lawsuit. Now, if any student can come forward and, without a reasonable doubt, point a finger at any government minister who either harbored another minister to extort or himself/herself extorted sexual services from her as she sought “the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse”, then of course Mr. Linton will be vindicated.

    Words have power and power should be used fairly and responsibly. Please learn the lesson.

    Lennox. One major reason you can’t be the leader of our country, or any country for that matter – you wiil make a lot of powerful enemies and very few political allies. You are way too emotional and your ego supersedes your mission.time and time again you have proven to be irresponsible with your words. An extensive vocabulary does not correlate with intelligence. And there is no guarantee a good orator will be a good leader. Go back to interviews, not that you were that good at them , but definitely not as bad as you are at your attempts to “lead”

  7. Lennox needs new tactics
    February 14, 2016

    People need to stop using the bad behaviour of the PM to justify the errors made by Lennox. All he has to do learn to say ‘it is alledged’ when making these kind of statements and he would not be facing court cases. Face reality!!! He is not in power and the legal system is not in his favour. To win support and an election he has to learn what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. Until then he will bring himself down and others around him. This case may ruin him and/or redefine him. But!!!! there is a risk that if he is found guilty and destroyed the DLP may have added fuel to a climate that is already ripe for revolt. It is alleged that many UWP voters and sympathisers have already reached a point where only fear holds them back. This case will prove to be very interesting. Even DNO are wise enough to put alleged in the title of the article. Skerro Vs Lennox – who can destroy who first is now the modern agenda instead of looking at who can build Dominca.

    personally i gave Linton that information about some government ministers, in the middle east, we were not referring to these crab in a barrel so call ministers in Dominica, let the sue, they cant stop you Linton, their time is drawing to and end, and they will beg your forgiveness, time longer that rope.

    I am a Team Dominica supporter and to be honest I am sick and tired of all these legal battles Mr. Linton has found himself in. This is a huge distraction to Team Dominica plus our supporters have to take their hard earned money to pay legal cost and damage to these people. Money that could be better spent by Team Dominica to push its programs. Mr. Linton you should step aside and allow the party to focus on winning the next election with a new leader (Joshua Francis or Joseph Isaac could easily hold the fort).

      Guys, just give it up because your tactics not working with that double psychology you trying putting all that stress on we and I and so on. All that coming from the same source and we know it we call it the Ministry of propaganda an misinformation. You wasting your time. Team Dominica i strong because it one team, not only one man who’s boots all you have to lick and bodo you have to wipe. We pity you because when the house falls down your boss will be gone leaving all you behind in the rubble. Dominica will survive.

    Boy look jokes i heard Lenox on the radio talking and the man cannot even explain his self all i am hearing is we we we have to pay. Mr Lenox stop depending on those poor mar-lay-ways to help bail you out of trouble. And it is time to abandon ship cause you costing those poor mar-lay-ways to much. Lord take over the wheel cause my lovely Dominica needs help the blind leading the blind.

    Who really controls the court. What has happened to Mr. D.O.N. Emanuel’s case. What has happened to Mr. Thomson Fontaine’s case. What has happened to Isidore, Skeritt’s lawyer case. Is it a coincidence, just as Mr. Linton is beginning to recover from one case he is brought back to the court. According to my friend Blessing, maybe it is a case of beating the iron while it is hot. For one thing, the rumors that Tony was not allowed to leave the United States by the immigration Dept., as he is presently awaiting an appointment for his US citizenship, will be dispelled, once and for all. Another interest is whether Tim Tim will appear in court. According to Mr. Linton the court has put aside fourteen days for the completion of the case, can Skeritt remain in Dominica for fourteen consecutive days and sitting in the alleged infested court room, oh boy, that is going to be fun.

Very unfair to keep taking money from them when u keep being reckless. The regulations governing the media no longer pertain to you as you’re now in politics.

    I am confused, someone help me understand the following. A traitor is a person who is Guilty of treason or treachery in betraying friend, country. A prostitute is a person who willingly uses his or her talent or ability in a base and unworthy way for money. Mr. Linton never called any Minister’s name when it was alleged he called them prostitute, he used a general term, Ministers of Government. By the way, in the cabinet, there are both men and women. Skeritt said publicly, “when you see Lennox Linton what do you call him, traitor, when you see Monell Williams, what do you call her, traitor, when you see Thomson Fontaine, what do you call him, traitor.” Skeritt and his gang is contending they have never willing used there talent or ability in a base and unworthy way for money. Because Linton allegedly said otherwise, they want $1 million. Linton was never found Guilty of treason or treachery as said by Skeritt. Who deserves the $1million, Skeritt or Linton or split the money.

    Let us assume that the whole system is corrupt. let us leave out de education system because we doh need education to be opposition leader. Let us leave out de judicial system because we always losing our cases. Let us leave out government because when de fox cannot get de grapes it sour, so our government sour to those who cannot get de power. Now let us look at ourselves “we not me” and put our hand in fire. We got burned, but we still go back and put our hand in fire and got burned again. We never learned that fire will burn any hand we put in it and we continue to put our hand in fire and blame other for our burns. Mr. Linton, education in its simplest form is being able to adapt to your environment and use it wisely and successfully. Stop this recurring problem of going to court because of your mouth.

    People’s mouths could cost them a mint. I hope Linton is warned by his members to watch what he states and how he states it in the future There is nothing wrong with them informing him accordingly. Consider how much money it will cost him and UWP members in the long run if he does not curb his mouth.
    There is a diplomatic manner in handling such situations. He does not have to go public with what he thinks is wrong, saying he does it for the people of Dominica. Really?
    Consider, they are his observations and views which may not be altogether correct.

    Whether you like him or not, you have to feel sorry for this guy. I thought he was the so call very smart guy. Apparently not that smart. He needs a good advisor help him get his priorities straight instead of following a 2 decade old lost venture. Its obvious that he has no advisor. He need to prepare himself for the next election by engaging in community development to have something of substance to talk about. IF he cares to employ people he can also embrace the Citizen by Investment Program and go out and find an investor. Opposition leaders can do that too. Oops, I forgot, he is not a real leader. What am i thinking? Why? because that advice would make no sense to Lennox. This guy is destroying his own political career. How sad.

With that said, I say give them hell Mr. Linton. If you know something, say something. If you see something, say something. The PEOPLE need to know. Now this is where your conscience comes in; don’t lie to PEOPLE. The PEOPLE want to know the truth.

    I have watched many cricket games where the umpire gave someone OUT when evidence clearly shows he wasn’t out and that cost the team. I have seen teams win basketball, cricket, football games, not because they were the better but because the referee made bad calls.

    In the judiciary I have seen many criminals walk out scotch free, for crimes that they know they committed but the judge ruled in their favor.
    Was Skerrit innocent about the French passport saga? But the court said he won.t. Was Bobbles correct when he said he owns the villas? Was Pinard Byrns innocent re the Layou River Hotel where DOMINICA lost over $130 million dollars and Lennox was asked to pay for his tongue? But the court said Lennox was wrong. Are the alleged ministers (they know themselves) innocent? The court will decide

    Let’s remember that God is the final judge!. Like Paul I say, “there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day 2 Tim 4:8

    • I don’t see where they said Lennox was wrong, but I read that he had no evidence to prove his case–that is why the verdict was against him. and now her better be ready to point finger at those whom he called rapist –one way or the other–or else he is in deep water once again.

    Laborites are already celebrating and something is telling me that some coco makark has already taken place. Dominica is a country that has been plunged to deep hell and I wouldn’t even raise my dog here. Like the account seen in Genesis, which led to the flood of Noah, Everything here is corrupted from the church, to the justice system, to the farm. No wonder we cannot get a grain of fig in a Dominica that once shipped thousands of fig! The curse of the Almighty, who sees, hears, & knows everything, is upon us. No wonder we build roads and airport only to be destroyed by Erika. This place stinks!

    Lennox we know you have spoken truthfully, but like Elijah of old 1Kings 17-20, they are out to get you and sadly enough, those false preachers, like in the case of Elijah, have sold themselves to Skerrit and the evil, devilish, ungodly system.

    I know you love Dominica and is prepared to give your life for your country, but I think it’s time to leave & let satan finish with them

    The way the laborites on this website behaving leaves one with the impression that the case has been called and a verdict has been given against Linton.

Laborites sounding like someone has already told them who they will deliver the victory to, with or without evidence.

Befilia, do you know what happen to the funds if you do can you enlighten us the public.
      Dominicans are so afraid of what’s happening around them, but remember what goes around must come around, And as far as Linton goes God doesn’t give us more than we can handle so you see God is watching over him.

    Lennox’s logic on these issues is very evasive. Looks like he is trying to get all his supporters to feel guilty as though they are the ones who were sued for defamation of character. He continue to say (we). In politics usually politicians are responsible to make their supporters lives easier. Lennox’s way of thinking is that as long as you support him, you must help him pay for using his tongue loosely. This guy is a manipulator. I also think that Lennox’s meeting in Layou was to encourage his supporters help him pay off that £20,000. Having said that, I don’t think Dominicans would that stupid to vote this guy in office as their prime minister.

    • @engineer February 12, 2016 “I don’t think Dominicans would that stupid to vote this guy in office as their prime minister”

      Then we shall have cases against the publishers. That is where the real money is

      Peter the writ was issued on behalf of the P.M. and all his cabinet, 18 ministers I understand. Yes, including the females. It is for defamation after mr. Linto was sent a letter by S.C , I believe on 29 May 2014, asking for an apology and a payment of $1 million if he did not want to be sued. Obviously, mr. Linton declined that request and decided to defend himself against the accusation instead. The entire cabinet and the P.M. against one man. Reminds me of David and Goliath!For start I do not believe that Roosevelt Skerrit will appear in court (…again) because, as far as I know he has to be in Belize for a Caricom meeting.

    An Italian friend once told me a true story which is applicable to our current situation here on the Com. of DA.
    It goes like this: When he was growing up there were bullies on his block. They picked on him and beat him up frequently. He got fed-up . He said there was a midget in the bullies gang so he cornered the Midget and like we say in DA Boss his behind. really putting a hurting on him. The gang met him and asked why he beat up the midget. He responded when you stop beating me I’ll stop with the Midget. the scenario existed 90-95 DFP, 95-2000UWP,2000-PRESENT.
    BEAT the midgets apparently is the MO.
    Long live D/can backwardness.

      Yeah! Now it is “WE” but for the “traitor” the lament was about “Me, Myself, and I”–as of everything else. Like “I” am the leader of the UWP;”I” am a member of Parliament–so why isn’t the Police interfering on behalf of “Myself”f –there was no mention of “We”

      I am sure it was “ME” who stayed home for the carnival festivities because of fleshly fear, while” WE” were having a great time–Good Lord!

    Hmm… seems like Mr Linton will get our Dominica in a whole lot of trouble if we are not careful and make him leader. Always in trouble with the law. From simple things like being ignorant of Dominica’s wildlife (crabs) regulations to being made to pay thousands of dollars (money that should have gone to more productive use) by the Law Lords of the Privy Council of England. Now he has not finish pay for one court matter but he is already back in the court (being sued for 1 million dollars), and there is even more on the horizon. Is that incompetence? Should we take a chance with Mr Linton? Now look he is calling for criminal investigations involving a matter for which he was made to pay thousands of dollars by the Privy Council, and for which he Linton was the ‘investigating journalist.’ Doesn’t that say something about him? Was he incompetent at even his own job, ‘investigating journalism?’ What can he really do? Let’s be careful with Linton.

      Are they not arresting diplomats with our passport?
      Didn’t they have to put back money in the treasury for the bin bobol?

    This is dominica and only in Dominica, with a judicial system which is one side I am not surprise, the word rape is being used not only for sex rape, what about bleeding and rapeing a country, does that mean that a person is having sex with the country, people do use these phrase all over the globe, this is case is political, this lawsuit is revenge with tony at the helm of it, the system in dominica is throwing worst cases underneath the carpet, there are victims awaiting justice for years and nothing is being done, Tony should be rallying the court and the police to reinvestige Mr and Mrs Emanuel attempt murder and the firebombing of their house so that they can get justice before they die, instead of he and the rest of the sharks lying in wait for Linton and UWP members to kaka for him to file lawsuits, what about all the degrading things that was said about Miss Monelle Williams during the election by Skerrit and the labour party cronnies, and is still being harass by skerrit

    Ministers of Government including Skeritt, have said worst. The whole thing is to silent Mr. Linton. Since he became leader of the opposition, he has become a thorn in the side of the Government, in particular Skeritt. If Skeritt and his gang can put Mr. Linton into oblivion, then it will be ole mas, in terms of corruption and the bad management of the country. They are over looking some thing else, that is, Angello, Arondale and the editor of the blob, mas in the cemetery, these guys are plenty more dangerous then two Lintons put together. Therefore, if they believe should Linton go away it is going to be a free ride, they better think again.

    • @Doc. Love February 12, 2016

      A thorn is a bad situation, which is an enemy to everyone–except, perhaps not to other thorns like itself–as you have mentioned above.

      And so, if you think that your Linton is a thorn to any person or any group, then you are acknowledging that he is a bad person.

      If I were in your place I would desire that Linton go away in peace –because the bad is always God’s enemy as well; He is in Primary charge and there is no way His enemy can go away without complete destruction–no matter how forceful their fight, God’s blows are always more forceful; so don’t wish for that kind of fight for your brother, or whoever Linton is to you. Bottom line!
