Four men, including three government workers, who are facing drug charges, were granted bail in the High Court on Friday afternoon.

The men, who have been charged with possession of 30,000 grams of cocaine and possession with intent to supply said cocaine, appeared in a Roseau Magistrate Court on Thursday morning but were denied bail.

The matter was taken to the High Court and bail was granted in the sum of $150,000 each.

The atmosphere outside the court was carnival-like and one observer said it appeared the entire community of Petite Savanne came out in support of the men.

Garneth Jolly, 46, of Loubiere an employee at the VAT Unit and Orlando Moise, 30, of Petit Savanne, an employee of the Ministry of Finance, were represented by attorney at law Wynante Adrien-Roberts.

Francis Moise, 26, of Petite Savanne, an employee of the Ministry of Education and Clinton Harriette, 32, a bus driver of Petite Savanne, were represented by Joshua Francis.

As condition of bail the men are to report to the Grand Bay police station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 5:00 and 7:30 am.

They are to surrender all travel documents and stay away from any port of exit on the island and have no contact with anyone associated with the matter.

    hmmm bunch of hypocrites in this place. All those sleeping with other ppl wives and husbands, having abortions, Stealing from their employers (even if is a paperclip), dishonesty and the rest, ISN’T THOSE SINS ALSO?? Get away from the personal hatred against people who have done you no wrong in life.

      What envy and jealousy can free people have for criminals that about to go to jail?
      You do realize their is distinct difference between sin and crime. Sin is for religion and crime is for the law. What the 4 men committed was crime whether you love them or not doesn’t mean cac! yes the comments are generally negative because the people they’re talking about did a bad thing… what do you expect. Only an ignorant person would celebrate criminals. UDOHREADYET!

    “stay away from any port of exit on the island”? dude are you for real? since when people travelling back door need any legal port of exit. all you full of it, and this has nothing to do with how good their lawyer is, its a matter of who they can possibly implicate if they did not get out. poor my little island.

    Smh last time I check getting bail does not mean that the person/people went free. Reading from all these comments alot of you people don’t know what bail is. It’s sad. Why would you keep someone in a cell until the case is called and over with? They did not kill anybody for them to be locked up in prison until their case is called.

    It seems that the mark of success of many Lawyers rests on their ability to get bail for their clients. Even when the crime is horrendous and there are people out there to be harmed if the alledged criminal is granted bail, these Lawyers are not swayed and will go to the Privy Council or CCJ to get their client out on the road. And the Judge on the bench is obviously more concerned with the text of the law rather than the spirit and the safety of society at large. True, a man is considered innocent until proven guilty according to natural justice, but he does not have to be granted bail to prove this cardinal point. Where society stands to be negatively affected by the release of an alledged criminal, the Judge should take this into account when a bail application is made. The magnitude of the drug bust and the known effects of drug on our society should dictate that the Judge act more responsible. Every criminal act committeed here is watered down to putting the criminal back on the streets to frustrate the Police effort in making the State safe. I heard the PM say some time ago that he was contemplating new legislation to control the use and abuse of firearms in the State and, to that extent, the new law would cause an offender to go straight to jail……….go Court case, no bail! It’s kind of revolutionary, that the current situation with crime calls for revolutionary action. So, please Mr. Magistrate, Mr. Judge and Mr. Lawyer, it is not all about the letter of the law; it is also about making society safe.

    • July 22, 2013

      While you are right about the things you said, you also have to remember that the public does not have full access to the details of the case. Gone were the days when people were sent to jail even when they were innocent. Today you have to be so careful that although one may be guilty he still has his rights and any mistake made can cost the government a major lawsuit. Dominicans are too quick to make their own judgements on things without having any idea what the evidence is.

      • Frank Talker
        July 22, 2013

        I hear you, but I will side with the first Anonymous because he is making a case about bail, not about the guilt or otherwise of the accused. A perspn is granted bail, not based on his guilt or not, but whether the offence is bailable and whether the defence lawyer can convince the Magistrate or Judge that bail should not be denied. Almost never do they consider the effects on the innocent public and the trauma to be undergone by victims of the crime. Even where initial evidence clearly point to guilt on the part of the alledged criminal, the law still provides that bail can be granted. This is my concern with the law and the practice.

    I don’t understand why people happy they got bail. Why? Because you believe in their innocense. Please!!!!! They that so unlucky. Boy in DA police don’t arrest you until they sure. If you get off is not because you innocent is most likley because of a technicality.
    They don’t care about the future of the country or the youth they are poisoning. They find they have to work too hard for a little money. Well join the line. Most of us have to but we have a moral compass that will not allow us to do such evil.

    If as the article says three of the persons are employed with the Government of Dominica and were unable to report to work from July 15 to July 19, 2013 what happens to their jobs?

    If for some strange coincidence they were all on vacation what happens to their jobs in that that case?

    The other matters I would like to have DNO investigate is to seek statements from the head of the Public Service Commission, the Head of the Public Service Union, the Chief Personnel Officer, and the Minister of the Public Service about the employment status of any Public Officer detained and charged for drug possession and intent to supply. What is understood as a good and proper person fit to be employed with the Public Service? Does someone with a police record qualify? Does someone who served time in jail qualify?

    Finally , I need DNO to find out if there is a whistle Blowing Act that Public Officers can invoke to report suspicious activities of all categories of Public Officers and politicians and if there is one how many matters have been reported annually for the last ten years and the matters that are currently under investigation.

    Dominicans we must petition for the laws to be revised and brought up to date with the current crime.We have a dolly house judicial system that was hurriedly put together when this country was innocent,we are no longer innocent

    We are too show ,too flam,chicken brains we purport to have because we don’t stick with the issues and bring about change.On this medium we vent but what about standing together and challenging the relevant authorities on the future of the country .

    Our country is in deep do do and we are hearing nothing,it is a known fact that we are the transhipment point.At a major case hearing in a Caribbean island our name was mentioned ,those of us that’s in the know almost shit on ourselves because persons were describing an island we know but they have never been to?

    For as long as I can remember we keep saying (DA so poor) that’s why so many of us are all over the place taking comess from people.So those in DA decide to put DA on the map and they are doing it by any means necessary.

    There is an underbelly in DA that is serious the lawmen can’t handle that,there is a lot of fronting in the shitty.As a people at home and abroad ,if we don’t’ come together collectively and decisively make quick and sweeping changes,we in for a tough road.

    So fellow bloggers and D/cans to the bone,for the love of country decide on whose side you are,it’s not about political alliances,it’s not about bourgeoisie and malaway, it’s not about country and town,it is about the future of the country ,what are we leaving for our children.

    I don’t vent anymore, I’m at the stage where my two (2) shoulders seem broken (deux Zepol mwen karsay) but for the love of my country I must stand and be counted.It’s bad you all.

      Some people will say that the system stinks; not properly functioning and with fairness.
      Times do change and the situation in Dominica has drastically changed for the worse. A lot of lawlessness prevail in Dominica.
      The Judicial System must change with the times; likewise the Police Force. Serious-minded people who take their positions seriously and are concerned about the safety of nationals are badly needed.
      Hard-core and consistent offenders are released on bail. Murderers are released on bail, a day after committing a murder.
      Masked men who rob businesses with guns and steal thousands of dollars in the $30,000 bracket; money not found and they are released on bail.
      Those who are caught in drug trafficking with a certain amount of drugs worth hundreds of dollars or a million dollar are soon released on bail. Those cases are not heard for years.
      They copycat big countries and give them time off from full sentencing because they were incarcerated. And the list goes on…
      Having stated that, all it takes is for the current government to do something about it. Something could be done if bloggers concerns are taken seriously. This could, hopefully, decrease crimes in Dominica.

      Some years ago, I think it is a Bajan calypsonian who sang this song, “Lawyers are liars.” Nevertheless, they must defend their clients. The sad part of it is having them released on bail. They are paid exorbitantly and must earn those dollars and in order to earn additional business. The criminals commit the crimes and want their freedom. This is what is not fair
      I would not discourage them from this profession. Granted, it does not appear to be an honest one but a country needs lawyers.

    I don’t understand why anyone would get upset. Lawyers that is what they do. Go to school and learn how to tweak the truth. If you ask me and you may not be, most of the lawyers should go to jail. The problem is that when you have one or two people that go away and they get a little education they think they could come back and run the country. When they don’t get what they want, then they start making all kind of mischief and blacklist people. Well these people need to make a living. You find lawyers that are have committed serious offense, but because they are lawyers no one take a serious look at their actions. I know lawyers who leave this country and go away with the same bad habits. There are many of them in the America and always on the radio talking about corruption, and they are the most corrupt. There is one lawyer he was lying and had family on the paying staff and they was not working with the office.

    We always talk about politics in Dominica, the legal system is one thing that the politicians should be focusing on. Now the case is supposed to start October 10th, I will be watching, I do hope there are no delays. for goodness sake the men were caught with the cocaine in their possession. My only wish was that they were caught by the French authorities like shakes, then they will be remanded till their trial and then they will have some serious consequences. Dominica too lenient and if this is the way we want to stamp out drugs, we are not ready. Minister of Legal Affairs and Cabinet step up your game, fix the bail act, cases should not be taking years to get to trial, set some minimum sentencing guidelines for drugs. Cocaine is a very dangerous drug, 30 kilos is no joke. Let us make these 4 drug dealers, Clinton, Orlando, Francis and Garneth and any others examples so people can think twice about dealing drugs..Breaking my Heart for my country

    I remember some years ago,on a search of the fire service headquarters for something that was stolen, the police came upon some drugs on an officer.
    He was arrested, jailed and fired. so what is this that is happening with this stupid-what-you-call-it-justice-system.
    I am of the belief that the magistrates and some elements of the police force is in on this system, and are probably getting a profit off these guys.
    The police force is no damn force that deserves respect, they beat up those they don’t like but get paid from their friends in the drug trade matter of fact I personally know three officers who are involved and am thinking of blowing their cover and corrupt practices.

    the bad thing is not the drugs they were caught with. what is more sad is to come on DNO and see how dominicans are hating on each other with the comments. Calling each other names such as stupid, idiot etc. its a shame that we Dominicans make every situation tear us apart as a people. there are people from other countries who come on to DNO to catch the news in Dominica, especially as it is posted on facebook.

    and what u think they are saying about Dominicans? We can all comment on the story without having to be hating each others comment. eveybody is entitled to their opinion on DNO and it is very sad to read comments that are verbal attack on each other.

    Come on Dominicans, dont make our country fall. drugs are already creeping to destroy the lives of our people, dont make the last thing we have, our pride and dignity fall apart.

    Do we need more evidence that this country of ours is coming apart? Do we need any more evidence that this country is heading in the direction of a failed state?
    The reality is everywhere I look I see young people trying desperately to get rich quickly, not by doing an honest day’s work but by doing everything possible to cut into the line, to get a jump on others, to accumulate wealth at a pace that bears no relation to their legal income.

    Sounds familiar? Isn’t this what they perceive to be happening at the leadership level in the country? What incentive do the young have to be honest and law abiding citizens when everywhere they look they see examples of “successful” people in high office driving expensive SUV’s and living in multi- million dollar homes whether from selling the country’s passports to criminals or other acts of official corruption.

    This arrest of public employees in a major drug bust lays bare the wound that is festering in this country: A major decline in the culture where money has become root of all evils from the political directorate on down. It’s all about getting rich as quickly as possible.

  56. Justice and Truth
    July 19, 2013

    Rejoicing with people who are drug traffickers? This is not good at all. Some people have lost their sense of sin. They no longer know the difference between right from wrong. When their relatives die from drug abuse and overdose, only then will they feel how dangerous are illegal drugs.
    Some of you may have heard that an actor died of drug abuse and mixing alcohol. The previous night he attended a party. He is not the only one who died of drug abuse. There are too many of them.
    He was a Canadian. Last Sunday he was found dead in a Vancouver hotel. I believe I heard on TV that his body was cremated. Imagine there is nothing left of him but ashes.
    He was relatively successful. A TV broadcaster said, he had such a good life why would he resort to illegal drugs.
    In an interview he said he commenced taking drugs around the age of twelve. He was consistently in rehab. He stopped taking drugs for a while but he reverted to them; too weak of spirit. What a waste of a life. He was 31 years.
    The best thing to do is never touch drugs, none of them. Never allow yourself to be influenced for once you commence taking it, there will be no end to it. It will destroy those who ingest them. This is why those drugs must not never be legalized.

It’s not the government they doing what they can with what they got. The real problem is greed n envy, never come see people believing what they see on tv and what they hear through gossip thinking they can live a rocks tar lifestyle. Dominican culture has changed man cocayin man, people with jobs distributing drugs, young women making bomb for top up, young men raping grandmothers, Rastafarianism confused with fashion, crackheads gainfully employed tonsupport their habbit instead of rehabilitation, communities supporting criminals etc etc. the problem cannot be solved solely by police… Dominicans as a community have to stand up to establish the standards that keep us crime free 20 years ago and before, the real problem is you and me and our state of mind!

Dont worry even if the catch you again, you will still get bail. You have a lot of people who will help you get free, people in high position”.

All the blame should be placed squarely on the heads of every Dominicans for not rising up against these kind of madness! we and our children are the victims of these criminals and the system is refusing to protect us from these THUGS NO GOOD DIRT-BAGS. I still can’t believe what’s happening in this Dominica. The people who should be protecting us against these killers are in tern protecting these pieces of rubbish. Oh my God! I’m just wondering whether we are now receiving what we deserve, by putting an idiot in office. I had some hope for Dominica but I was wasting my time. This Dominica is no more but a ship without sail on an open sea. Sad to say, but CRAPOUD SMOKE OUR PIPE. I now wash my hands. All I will say is, God will hold these Magistrates and judges accountable, because they also are involved in that DRUG BUSINESS. It’s very obvious by their actions.

    This is the beginning of the end for Dominica. This is going to raise so much controversy and war especially when others get charged for drug trafficking. Now there is no excuse to not give others bail when they commit a crime. This also discourages the police force because they witnessing their hard work is for nothing and the country still blast the police for not doing a good job. Foreign authorities need to get involved because Dominica is just a stopping point for the drugs and our authorities are not doing nothing to fight against the drug trafficking. They seem to be encouraging it from what was witnessed today in the high court. This incident is simply telling the young kids they can get involved in drugs once you have someone to put up bail for you… Its time for me to leave this country… I am ashamed of this place.

      You are correct. The case is not yet heard and they went to the High Court? It is strange. Something is wrong with them. They should explain this strange happening to Dominicans.

      • July 22, 2013

        Justice & Truth:

        The last time I got on your case you responded by saying I do not know your educational background; you see there are many ways to determine wether someone is academically educated, or if they simply attended primary, or elementary school only.

        And since you know everyone who started Church, and what year they started it, perhaps you are familiar with this: “what comes out of the mouth defiles the body.” So, you should realize when you make such comments as this one they certainly exposes your educational background.

        In the first place the way the legal system is set up in the Caribbean, when a lower court does not have the authority to deal with certain matters, the higher court is petitioned to deal with the matter. As in this case whereas the situation exceeds the limits of the lower court, in that the magistrate as usual in Dominica is a civil servant, with no legal training, not a JD, or any thing like that, it is appropriate for the magistrate to refer to a high court judge to grant or to deny the accuse bail!

        Note: careful how you define JD., because it abbreviate more than one word, in this case I mean Juris Doctor of law, one having a degree equivalent to bachelor of laws. we can also use that to abbreviate the word juries-prudence, in this case I would be talking about a system, or body of law, such as the courses of court decisions.

        “Playing smart does not make one smart.”

        We have to know what we are talking about before we give it plenty of lips, sometimes it is better to remain silent, and simply listen and learn!

      so what were you all doing there then? ALl you went to show support for all you drug dealers.

    • July 19, 2013

      Well; if the out-coming of a large crowed of people does not signify a carnival atmosphere, what does?

      You claimed that people cried; what caused the crowed to cry, is it because they appreciate, and revered the activities in which these criminals are involved?

      I can understand if the culprits were innocently arrested without committing a crime, and charged, and the entire Village went out in protest of their arrest!

      However, in a situation where they committed a crime; caught with a deadly substance, one, which sole purpose is to destroy the mind and life of those who sniffs cocaine, one cannot justify the reason for the support your Village people went out and gave to the criminals.

      So, unless you can explain the reason for your shedding of tears, one can only assume that the people of your Village may be all involved in peddling the deadly merchant of death which is cocaine; based on what you said it would appear to me that your entire village population, are involved in the up holding of some criminal activities.

      What happens to the pure days, when your villagers’ were king of the sea, fishing, and producing Bay-oil which was bought by L Rose & Company, and ship to England!

      What became of that simply life when your villagers would travel all the way to Londonderry Estate, near Wesley to work for an honest living; some of the men left children in the Village of Wesley, some made Wesley their home, that is how I came by my nephew McDonald Destouche, and cousins named Moise now residing in Florida, and New York!, they are originally from Marigot.

      There is money in the sale of cocaine, however while the criminal elements profit from it; the suckers who use the poison usually die a slow and punishing death!

      Did you cry because you condone the use and sale of cocaine?

      • Justice and Truth

      It is a failed set of rules that we follow. We need to write laws against the prime minister and the president. Then let the lead under a certain set of rules. That is the only way to avoid future corruption. Of course, them going against that set law would be treason, punishable by execution.

      Stem in from there and we can clean up D/ca… maybe the world. Just a thought.

      As for these twits… keep doing all drug thing and see where it leads u in life.

      Most people only learn the hard way.

    This business of rejoicing over BAD as opposed to GOOD will bring a curse upon this country.
    We have seen it in government where those who know better accepts corruption and bobol by our leaders.They stay MOO MOO, now it is rampant in the DRUG TRADE. When you are caught trafficking drugs people are in Carnival spirit when you are released.
    Once we cannot stop something evil from the bud, this is what we must expect.

I wonder whether the drugs is from Venezuela !! I hope that the powers that be realise that as my parents always said “what you frequent is what you are” remember the devil will always demand his pay and the price is always very high. I sincerely hope that we don’t end up on the radar as Columbia, Venezuela or such likes. I appeal to our Government to please protect our beautiful Island. Some of us want to come home!!!!!
