Bernard Wiltshire arrested

Former attorney general Bernard Wiltshire confirmed to Dominica News Online late Monday that he has been arrested by the police.

Speaking from the CID office, Wiltshire told DNO that he was arrested at about 4:45 Monday afternoon, for according to the police “conspiring with persons unknown to sell a Dominican passport”.

The outspoken attorney has described this as a “bogus charge” being imposed by a corrupt regime.

He said he was informed by one police officer that the person with whom he is alleged to have conspired admitted to the police that he doesn’t even know Bernard Wiltshire.

Both the Sun Newspaper and DNO reported earlier Monday that attorney Wiltshire had filed a civil lawsuit against the police for alleged wrongful arrest in connection with his alleged involvement in a major passport scam.

Wiltshire was detained in June 2011 for ten hours and then released without being charged.

In an interview with DNO earlier today he said he had been treated unjustly and very “unfairly” and his lawsuit was aimed at preventing such acts by the police, whom he suggests abused their power in focusing on his signing of one passport form for an individual, while other lawyers said to have signed over 40 such forms for suspects in the alleged scam had not been targeted.

    Is there a guiding legal principle that a man is innocent until proven guilty in Dominica?

    Bernard signs one passport form and he is arrested not once but twice.

    Another lawyer signs a pachay (alot) passport forms and is not arrested not once nor is he not even called in for questioning?

    A warrant is issue by the Chief Magistrate to arrest a lawyer on 42 counts of criminal charges and up to today nothing has happened.

    So where is the rule of law in Dominica? The principle of the rule of law states that all men are equal and should be treated equally in the eyes of the law. So why only Bernard?

    Coincidence that only yesterday the story about his plans to take legal action against the police and his being arrested; i think not.

    He’s a lwayer and I think he may have justed used the media to gather some sympathy. I was surprised as to why he waited so long, since June 2011, and only now stated his intent to file a lawsuit against the police. However, now that he was re arrested, it all makes sense to me.

    I would also think that as a lwayer he knows that it is possible and reasonable that 1 can be held and interrogated without charges being laid for a period of time. However, in many jurisdictions, you cannot be held for more than 72 hours without being formally charged. Of course, Dominica law is different, but the police can detain him as long as is justifiably necessary but no longer than the statute allows.

    So 10 hours is reasonable in the real world.

    The ignorance of our people is quickly becoming more and more laughable. A man files legal action against the Police for wrongful arrest,7 hours later he is arrested by the same police on a false claim where the one of the accused does not even know who the other is.

    Instead those idiots ask themselves what’s really going on in their country, they talking garbage about “take infront”?

    It seems it takes minutes to prepare a legal suit?

    It seems it takes over 24 hours to find Mr. Wilshire? That he could have time do all that while they “going to arrest him”. The man’s office is a 2 minute walk from the police station.

    Do these people even think before they speak?

    Is this labour party politics totally blocking their brain?

    What absolute garbage is that about take infront?

    8-O This country is not only fully loaded with wicked people….we have some MAD and CRAZY people there too!

      The police are doing the right thing. To many people are abusing our passport for a $. They needed someone from the registry to make the birth certificate and someone seemingly credible to sign the form vouching for the passport recipient (a lawyer). The recipient paid a lot of money and they all benefited. The documents went to the Immigration purporting to be valid, true and correct. The immigration made the passport and handed over to someone on behalf of the fake recipient. The recipient was arrested in Italy and the info. relayed to the police in DA. The DA police took action and rightly so. This deception should not be allowed to go on noticed not withstanding who is involved.

    Everything is upside down. Everything is inside out. Everything is back to front. Because I know better I see that’s how the powers at be want things to be in Dominica (chaotic, divided and clueless). I’m waiting to hear of other arrests and prosecution of suspects on this matter of passport prostituting and other cases where citizen safety has been threatened (e.g. GON Emmanuel and wife), destabilization of our constitution so that it favors a select group, malappropriation of country funds for personal gains or on projects with little to no sustainable returns etc. As it stands now Dominica is in peril. A clear indication of dysfunctioning bordering on a failed state.

    Those who say the country is functioning well, please take a look at issues like per capita income, standard of living, unemployment rate, employment growth, private sector growth, entrepeneurship, viable foreign investments etc. If after scrutinizing these areas one can conclude that things are rosy in Dominica then I will plead the fifth.

    Many of us are caught up in an illusion gravitating towards personality and idolizing of select individuals rather than demanding professionalism, accountability and productivity (PAP) from them. If not for us surely for our children. We say we are Dominica but we best take heed for it seems as one calypsonian once said “plenty water” will wash Dominica soon.

    Careful about eating sour grapes that seem sweet for the children’s teeth will stain (i.e. The children will suffer.). The father’s teachings are intense and harsh. As we say if we are on the road to consistent justice then “bring it on” without fear or favor. Until then it’s simply a mirage!

    The Chief Magistrate signed and issued a warrant for the ARREST of a certain Lawyer some time ago. 42 charges of FRAUD and other CRIMINAL activities were filed against that Lawyer. Everybody knows millions were involved.

    That said Warrant was sent to the police for follow-up action. My people, Jik Johdi (UP to Today), No Arrest. Police Chief claim that he, the Chief, was out of State, so No arrest. You all Remember that?

    Didn’t another Lawyer sign 40 times the number of forms Wiltshire signed? Isn’t that other lawyer also a main sales agent for our passports?

    What about Transparency and Accountability in those sales? Have any Dominican diplomatic passports reach the hands of some people of questionable repute? Have some non-Dominicans who have our diplomatic passports in exchange for money or whatever, and appointed as our Ambassadors overseas, been rejected by respective foreign countries? Isn’t that true? Authorities cannot refute that.

    Nothing revealed about those secret deals are true then? But the info found out cannot be REFUTED? Only twist and turns and lies. Nothing. No arrest. No court. no sleeping or standing in cell. No Case. No Charges for the UNTOUCHABLES in Dominica. If you dare speak about the ills in Dominica, victimization. TRUTH could never be buried forever.

    Wiltshire will never be daunted or silenced for exercising his RIGHTS to SPEAK. A few in our Society cannot be allowed to do whatever they want and honest patriotic Dominicans are harassed for expressing their concerns against corrupt practices and a system where justice is not for all in our land. There are several examples recently of outright victimization of our brothers who are fearless to speak about national issues. Is so Dominica come, nuh?

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION THAT CAN ASSIST YOUR POLICE IN DOING A BETETR JOB THIS IS NOT THE FORUM FOR THE INFOMRATION YOU HAVE.

        It is common during an investigation for the police to arrest someone and release them pending investigations. After the police have gathered all the necessary evidence, rearrest the suspect who in that case is the lawyer and prefer the necessary caharges.

      And on the other side of your mouths call for the arrest of people that you can only allege to have fraudulently sold passports and hide them under de jail without evidence to support your claims. Now the only evidence you have is the sayings of people including BW himself.

      What do you Dominicans want? How is it do you decide who should be believed or not? By the party they vote? By profession?

CUBA IS A COMMUNIST STATE AND HAS BEEN OUR GOOD FRIEND FOR DECADES WE NEVEVR FEARED DOMINICA BEING TRANSFORMED INTO ADICTATORSHIP.MANY OF OUR TRAINED PROFESSIONALS STUDIED IN CUBA AND ARE WORKING IN DOMINICA AND NONE OF THEM ARE TRYING TO TURN THE COUNTRY INTO A LITTLE CUBA, SUDDENLY YOU LEARN A NEW WORD. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION OF DOMINICA AND WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO A COMMUNIST STATE. I DOUBT IT. CAUSE IF YOU KNEW YOU QWOULD NEVER MAKE THAT STATEMENT. LET ME HELP YOU, THER WOULD NEED TO BE A REFERANDUM AND 75 % OF REGISTERED VOTERS OR ADULT CITIZENS WOULD HAVE TO VOTE FOR THAT CHANGE IN OUR CONSTITUTION AND THAT MY FRIEND WOULD REALLY BE A CHALLENGE FOR ANY GOVERNMENT. SO STOPPPPP MAKING SUCH CLUELESS COMMENTS OK. HOW OLD ARE YOU ANYWAY?? JUST ASKING IT WOULD ONLY TAKE A CHILD STILL IN KINDERGARTEN TO MAKE SUCH A STATEMENT I THINK.

    First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    I am not sure what is going on in Dominica but the news coming from Dominica is very disturbing.

    They arrested Mr. Wiltshire once before and released him, so I take it they have concrete evidence if they arrested him yet again.

    I hope the police will also arrest all involved in the sale of Dominican passport.

    Power and Justice does indeed make for strange bedfellows.

    • January 30, 2012

      Also i do hope that hey will investigate the attempt murder of Mr Glenworth Emmanuel too much double standard in this island, Bernard today is yours tomorrow will be Skerrit and his bunch of dictators including the police, what this people want is for Dominicans to remain quiet, there is no freedom of speech/expressing in this island.the world is watching skerrit,

        To think they can do so much to Mr. Wiltshire but after two years they have not even attempted to look into the Ron Emmanuel’s case.

        The quality of Justice is indeed strained!!!

    Dominica is so crooked. So many of our passports have been sold by so many people to so many people,why is Wiltshire name alone from June 2011 that i am hearing..OH GOD HELP US!

      SO MANY PASSPORTS? HOW MANY? BY SO MANY PEOPLE? IS THAT A NEW NAME NOW? HOW CAN YOU RESPOND TO A NEWS ITEM AND ALL YOU CAN SHARE WITH US IS WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HEAD WHICH IS NOTHING BASED ON YOUR COMMENT. THE QUESTION YOU ASKING CAN BE BETTER ANSWERED BY YOU BECAUSE ONLY YOU CAN ANSWERE A FOOLISH QUESTION. I FEEL THAT ITS MY DUTY TO HELP YOU ANYWAY. HE IS THE ONLY ONE YOU HEARING ABOUT BECASUE WHEN THE OTHERS LIKE MARIE AND MITCHEL WERE ARRESTED CHARGED AND BAILED YOU WERE HIBERNATING. DOES THAT HELP AND ALSO THE POLICE CAN ONLY ARREST YOU ON SUSPICION IF THEY HAVE SUFFICIENT REASON TO SUSPECT YOUR INVOLVEMENT AND THEN CHARGE YOU WHEN THEY HAVE CONCRETE EVIDENCE TO DO SO. NOW GO BACK TO SLEEP CAUSE IT SEEMS THAT YOU JUST GOT UP FOR A SNACK.

    Wiltshire if this thing is deliberate victimization, you have no other option than to take those concerned to court. I mean so many people have prostituted our passport,and it is you alone the police is dragging all around the place. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! NO OTHER ATTORNEY ONLY YOU?

    Bernard file a lawsuit against the Popo and bam the Solicitor is arrested? Bernard is not Tiyani,we know what school he went to, we also know when he was called to the bar in Britain. Bernard is the low fence the lizard can climb? let the games begin. Dominica and Dominicans know exactly who selling passport but they prefer to turn a blind eye and do nothing because they like it so
    Watch around you the whole world is upside down. Let’s play.

      The solicitor got word from some insider, thus his reason for having filed his lawsuit. Reminds me of the Freedom lady when she demanded that the PM call election by a certain date or else. lol

    Guess Bernard got some inside info that he was about to get arrested, so being the lawyer that he is and knowing that the best defense is an offence. He came out early this morning doing just that

    Mr Wiltshire had been out of office for more than 8 years and they now want to arrest him. What about the lawyer who tried to sell the passport for the French man for 2 million US dollars. What about the money laundering lawyer.
