BREAKING NEWS: Police release Dr. Thomson Fontaine

Fontaine being carried after his release

The police have released Dr. Thomson Fontaine but he has been told that he should return to Police Headquarters on Monday at 9:00 am.

He was released pending further investigations.

After his release Fontaine was greeted by a jubilant crowd which shouted, “Free Dr. Fontaine” and “Skerrit must go.”

He was carried through the streets by some in the crowd.

He was picked up moments after he left his radio show on Q95 by members of the Special Security Unit (SSU) on Sunday afternoon.

The reasons for his arrest remain unknown as this time. However, his home was searched by the police on Saturday.

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, said in a Facebook post that Fontaine was taken into custody “under instructions from the Skerrit dictatorship to imprison him for speaking the truth and standing up for the good of Dominica.”

After learning of Fontaine’s arrest, a crowd quickly gathered outside Police Headquarters.

Police in military wear kept a heavy presence in the area.

    Give my men but two months! I still await for the reason for the march and its findings. If Pm should resign on his own accord so be it but, if he is forced out, Police stay home,labour supporters here we come, we must protect our PM. Tony all this is, for them to avoid the witness box, they are coming from all angles now. We shall not be moved.

Talk all over the place how long they were waiting in the stadium, they never wanted them to have that meeting and they won’t give permission again because they will use this bogus shit, but time will tell. The opposition should stop talking and let the chips fall where they may because a section of the population are not going to take heed.

    Chief Carbon,every pack of cards has joker’s in there but in Dominica you are the joker man.Under your tenure (not leadership) the police force has become like the Tonton makoot in Haiti and the Mongoose gang in Grenada.Its a dangerous mix when politicians are the ones telling the police how to do their jobs and which job they must do.Keep in mind that the ugly periods in Haiti and Grenada did end.Therefore this nonsense going on in Dominica will end too.

    Some people are saying that Dr. Thomson Fontaine should not return to the Police station this morning and I do understand their point of view but I do believe that Dr. Fontaine should return back to the Police station as requested with his lawyers . What I hope that Dr .Fontaine and his lawyers will do is to bring legal charges against the policemen and police department for harassment and all other jump up charges against him or the UWP, It’s about time the tables are turn on those departments and persons that go out of their way to intimidate the public bring them to the Court , it’s time to full up the court calendars with cases against PM to Tony to Carbon and all the others their are, enough is enough and the Opposition must file charges because they are targeted by the police and their top commander .

      How can he bring charges against the police department when HE knows what they brought him in for is real. He and the rest of the UWP clowns can twist the stories all they want for people like you because they know UWP follower are not the brightest crayons in the pack and can easily be fooled but the reality they know and the police have not done anything wrong like they would like Dominicans to believe. Wake up, get hooked on Phonics and stop making wanna be politicians play you for a fool with the make belief fake news.

        Yes U said that they are celebrating Thompsons release just like they celebrated Barabas release, the only person who knows the truth is God, this is the eternal God, and not your god please take note
        but I am to tell U that Proverbs chapter 15 and verse 3 says, the eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the Evil and the Good
        The eternal God also saw when the malefactors’ fire bomb the house of the Emmanuel’s on Christmas morning 2010 in St. Aromant, U will remember that Tony As taphan said that he was the first one on site when the fire broke out and there was no vehicle there, who told him about the fire so that he could go and look for the vehicle that was used to transport their men to put the fire, the same man As taphan and Lawrence accompanied to police headquarters the arsonist went to him for the rest of his money, so what is UR. take on that A . .

    It is good that the masses are providing support to Dr Fontaine.

    I hope next time that Joshua needs him and Athie is begging him on air to go to provide the support he will go and not cower in fear – they can never arrest everyone not even if they use the stadium as a jail!

      Are you for real? I was listening and people were begging Dr Fontaine not to go as they feared for his life and he told Athie he wants to go to support his friend and did just that.
      Why do say things we know nothing about.

    The police arrested the man and the crowd chanted, “Skerrit must go”? What madness is this? These men need to pay for their words and actions. You do not disrespect the law and expect to walk away scot-free. This situation affects all of us, wrong is wrong. The members of UWP, namely Linton and Fontaine stood watching the fires and made no attempt to fight the flame. Instead they smiled and took photos. It was just a big joke to them. Time will tell!

    Are you really serious right now? All the crap that’s happening in Dominica and you guys still continue to make excuses for it. Regardless of your political affiliation, people wrong is wrong. This has to stop. We have to put Dominica first, ONCE AND FOR ALL.
    Dominica is a democratic state and you cant just go around arresting people, because you think you can. Today is Thompson tomorrow is your brother or sister. People please put Dominica first, you cannot be ok with what’s happening. Its wrong and it has to stop. People, the truth is the light of the world. You have the right to speak on any issues that is affecting you without threat of retaliation. Dominica is a democratic state, Right?

    Dominica my heart bleeds for your because the very people that has taken an oath to protect you are the very people that are abusing you. I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CLAIM TO LOVE DOMINICA AND YET GIVE ONE MAN THE PERMISSION TO CONTINUE TO DESTROY OUR BEAUTIFUL DOMINICA.

    Monfared, Monfared, Monfared ! Monfared is the issue. I know that many of you would prefer that there be no discussion on this issue and so are pleased with the efforts by this DLP regime to silence everyone who keeps this part of the national conversation. Aren’t you all questioning why DA has been so “unlucky” with its diplomats ? Many turning out to be fugitives from the law ?

    Sensible people, do not allow these apologists and spin doctors to change the conversation. We need to remain focused on the diplomatic passport which was in the possession of Alireza Monfared an Iranian criminal who was reportedly associating with the top brass of the Labour party and lived in DA while he was being sought for crimes in his country.

    Whatever is going on isn’t in the best interest of we Dominicans. we are a strong people. Men who hunger for power should not be our focus. Our focus should be on whats best for our development and enhancement as a nation. We must put all bias aside and set our eyes on unity. Politics have not divided us as a people . Our way of thinking did that. If anyone loved Dominica or Dominicans in general he/she should do what best benefits us as a people. Many support party and over the years have struggled to survive. its time we stop thinking party and start thinking Dominica.

    February 13, 2017

    Let me see if I understand the UWP. As far as they are concerned the Police is not supposed to do their job and bring anyone for questioning? Well UWP management and supporters have really lost it.

    Dominicans we are not living in a bubble. People at home, in the Caribbean and Internationally know what happened last week and I am positive the police had a very good reason for questioning the man; but as usual without knowing the facts the UWP supporters are complaining.

    If you have a fete and applied for a liquor license to sell liquor, the board sets a time say until 1:00AM. At 1:01 AM you should no longer be selling any hard drinks.

    On the one hand the UWP are protesting about what they believe is right; at the same time they believe it is okay for them to break the same laws they are supposedly protesting about. I am very confused.

    They are calling for the PM to step down; yet they don’t want to be questioned by the police.

    When Skeritt became prime minister, their was a lot of talk about he being a visionary leader. If the laborites in particular really believe that, they must asked themselves what has gone wrong. Let us forget the alleged corruption, let us forget the mishandling of the economy, let us forget the dictatorial behavior, what visionary leader would have done what he did over the past week. Dominicans are just about settling over the arrest of a medical doctor because of his political views, a mini riot took place subsequently, today, Sunday, their are three tourist ships in port, , the best thing the visionary leader could do is to allow the police is pick up a senator and put him in custody for approximately four hour, then released him and asked him to return next day. He knew this action would attract many Dominicans and maybe a possible mini riot. To add insult to injury, blocks a main road that is used by the tourist. Is that great leadership.

In my view some people are waiting in time like this to cause trouble…Most of them have no agenda..Yes freedom of speech is a right..One must also be aware of the facts and procedures..

    The honourable prime Minister can call election now and will still win. That’s who the majority of Dominicans want to run their state affairs. Get this straight. Workers are just a low life minority.

  19. In the first place, Skerrit has absolutely no right legal right as the prime minister of Dominica to suggest, or order the police to arrest anybody! Even if Skerrit heard someone made a seditious speech, incendiary as it may be, that would have to be a matter for the judiciary, the police to decide after consultation with the AG!

    If Skerrit has the power to order the arrest of anyone in the country, then a are mow assured that Dominica is under a dictatorship! If Carbon arrested Fontaine on Skerrit’s order, that is political, and naturally is false arrest! The ball in the hands of Fountains’ defense attorney’s.

    Let’s see if this will play out without Dominicans getting angry do something about this! So, they search his home, and found nothing, they could not arrest then. This is provocation with malice, and certainly classified as false arrest!

Just remember the recent protest; there were not enough people to create any dent in the ruling apparatus so they resorted to violence. Now their leader and his cohorts are back peddling. Even though freedom of speech is guaranteed under the constitution that does not mean anybody can say whatevet he or she wants; people have to be held accountable. The protest back fired,now there is call for dialogue between the opposition, the government and police. How laughable and pathetic.

As I said I’m not a supporter but I have my education and commonsense and therefore I can put my personal prejudices aside and understand what’s going on in the Island and that we need strong men and women to stand firm for our democracy. There are so many detail stories to read and understand and a PM that is so dangerous the plan was all their own and it didn’t materialized and look how fast the PM came on air an.

      Let me offer some information. Canada’s PM promised election reform during his campaign, be it different from D/ca. He will not be doing so. I give him credit and state he must have thought it over and discussed it with his Cabinet/Advisors and decided it is not feasible and is expensive. Some are angry with him, even staging protests. I reside here and I could not be bothered.
      Some people are idle and have nothing to do. They will pounce on every little thing to make a raucous. We all have a right to free speech but be careful what you state. Free speech can put people in trouble; in hot water. Matured adults should know that. I always say, people cannot go about blabbing their mouths on whatever they choose to say and think they are always correct.
      I view them as irresponsible, immature, disrespectful and demanding adults who still have to grow up and have much to learn. They must keep in mind they are not in authority; are not the boss; are not the PM.

Ask yourselves that question. Overstand and get it straight people, in other countries just an accusation of wrong doing asks for your resignation, however, down here in this God forsaken your prime minister (not mine cause I wasn’t foolish enough to vote that man) can be caught in his lies over and over and over again yet still he,s still in power. Remember this people and keep it in mind ‘POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CURRUPTS ABSOLUTELY!’ That man has been in power for way too long so he has gotten comfortable and lazy, hence why it’s easier to just hand out money than making sustainable jobs for Dominicans. That’s not even the sad part. You enducated foils that supports this man should be ashamed of yourself cause that just proves that a man is more important that your country.. Smh…

Tell me a Country or Countries where the leader just resigns because of an accusation. Have you not heard the term, a person is innocent until proven guilty, and there is something called due process. Dominica is not governed by mob rule.

      Ask yourself, did you see him do anything wrong? That is the question. This is why Linton was served with Court papers. You must have concrete proof prior to making innuendos. Too bad you too are not charged. You people will put DNO in trouble. Cease your attacks on the PM. You are bearing false witness. It is a mortal/grievous sin to do so.
      How would you like someone to say something against you, whether it is true or not? Will you be pleased? You are constantly on the PM’s back. Would you like it for yourself?

        If the PM was evil, Linton and Fontaine would be in prison. We DLP supporters know who are the evil ones. They are those who create a disturbance in D/ca and want to destroy the country.
        Linton’s defiant attitude toward the police authorities and the later riots which destroyed business properties are good examples who the evil ones are. If I were you, I would keep quiet.

There is nothing to be afraid of as long as people live a law-abiding life and do not call others derogatory names. When you call the PM inflammatory names expect to be sued.
        What pressure? The issue is what Linton said and did; what Fontaine did (probably said) and what Dr. Sam Christian said.
        When the PM and Police authorities take steps, you are displeased. You go as far to call those who speak out, bad names.
        Linton does not have any truth. He will have to give an account of making innuendos about the PM. His mouth put him in trouble again. He has to defend himself and give reasons for scandalizing the PM’s name all over the world. There are no reasons for that.
        You lack adult maturity. People support whichever Party they like. You do not give them the prerogative to do so but expect it from them. You create enmity with them.

I support people standing for their right, but we must not encourage people to stand foolishly as has been happening lately.

      You would say they only joined the Police Force for the pay cheque? This is not fair to them nor the citizens of Dominica. If they are not happy serving their country they should resign and allow new police officers of integrity the opportunity to be police officers.

    no one is above the law. If Lennox Linton and the rest of the UWP are convinced that Prime Minister Skerrit is Judas, then they should do like Pilate did. Wash their hands but learn to respect the Democratic right of the Dominican people to elect freely the government of their choice.

      Sometimes even duly elected governments can be kicked out of office. That is what democracy is all about.

      If the people no longer hold any confidence in their leadership, they don’t have to wait until the next general elections. They can demand the government step down and snap elections can be called.

      This is in our Constitution. We have the right to choose who we want to govern our affairs.

        And in a democracy the process of changing government is through the poles by voting. It does not happen by calling for one’s resignation because of an accusation. if that were the case Skerrit would have been gone a long time ago.Mr. Linton and his team need to start working to put things in place for next election, because the only way they could get into power is by winning at the polls.

        “If the people. . . .” Who are the people? Only UWP supporters. UWP did not win the election. It is in the minority. So who are the people, the rest you mean.
        Let me inform you. Not all Dominicans disagree with the PM. The people making the (most) noise are UWP, Linton. He caused his supporters to be against the PM.

        You should think. You forgot what occurred last Tuesday? The Police was not taking a chance. News spread and supporters would soon be congregating in front of the Police Station. The Police had one on them; was ahead of them. This is the reason why they blocked the road in advance, from troublemakers.

Never have you every heard about such happenings before is because we in Dominica have never had such corruption in the country and when questions are put towards a government they can’t answer honestly. I think Dominicans are waiting for a big surprise because that’s how we learn… the hard way. Why can’t we look at the state of the country and think of it as being more developed as it is today? Why Dominicans? Why? We need change in the country….. I just feel sorry for my people cuz we were not this way before. This is a democratic country and there must be opposition!!!

    The arrest of Mr., Fontaine is no surprise to me when I think of recent information that’s hitting the American airways this weekend. I just want opposition to understand what’s going on and understand that the corrupt regime will do everything to get DA in a state of unrest so America will not react. Think of thiis a statement made by Kenneth Rijock late Saturday evening:
    “Will (Dominica) its failure to extradite Roosevelt Skerrit to New York, for conspiring to evade international and American sanctions on Iran, and money laundering, have the same effect ?”
    Based on the above quote, I get the opinion that Mr. Rijock is implying that he knows a request has been made to Dominica. Just wondering ok.

      That Rijock man is a fake and a liar. Is he not a friend of Linton? It is to be expected he will make those comments in order to incriminate the PM.
      Keep in mind the Wikileaks man and another one had to go into hiding so as not to be arrested. This may happen to this Rijock.
      I heard, twice on Saturday, on a Toronto Radio Station about “fake news” and that something should be done about it, to prevent the Media from spreading fake news without taking away their freedom of speech.
      I looked on that Website for the article but did not find it It must have been stated by another Media outlet,. I will keep my eyes open for it.

Why is it Mr Rijock not even a Dominican is so focused and concerned about Dominica affairs. A commentary on DNO written by G.A. Dwyer Astaphan on which he made a remarkable observation, quote “The truth is that there are several defects in Mr Rijock’s complaint against the Dominican Prime Minister. Defects of logic and reason”

      The recent arrest of Thompson Fountain was reported on Mr Rijock blog before DNO,there is a poster and a picture of Thompson Fontain accompanying the news story.There must have to be someone in Dominica or in the Diaspora supplying Mr Rijock with such info. and such persons are the beneficiaries of this aimed destabilization of Dominica.

        Iran is a Muslim country to begin with. It is a dictatorship one. This government will waste no time to execute people. The US government would be foolish to get involved and for what.
