UPDATE: High court grants judgment to Dr. Philbert Aaron

A High Court judge has awarded $130,000 plus cost to Dr. Philbert Aaron in a defamation suit file against police officer and calypsonian, Checko.

Checko had penned a song in 2011, ‘Bug Her,’ which Aaron claimed was defamatory to him.

According to a statement in the suit the song refers to Aaron by his designation and initial “Ambassador A.”

In handing down his decision, Justice Errol Thomas awarded $75,000 for general damages, $50,000 for aggravated damages and $5,000 for exemplary damages on account of the remix of the song because of Checko’s desire to win the road march title.

On January 16, 2013, Aaron filed a claim against Checko, whose real name is Abel Jno Baptiste, alleging libel and slander with respect to the song which was written and sung by the defendant.

The suit, filed by Noelize Knight-Didier of Harris and Harris on behalf of Aaron, claimed damages for “libel and slander.”

They also claim for aggravated and exemplary damages, an injunction restraining the defendant from further publishing the offending words and or any other words defamatory of Aaron.

Checko had filed an acknowledgement of service on February 13, 2013, but filed no defense within the time prescribed by law.

On March 6, 2013 Aaron requested an entry of judgment in default and that was obtained on March 13, 2013.

A subsequent application to set aside the judgment in default was denied.

In his ruling Justice Thomas stated, “The defendant’s ( Checko) conduct before and after he received the letter from the Claimant’s attorney has been noted. But what has not been highlighted is that the defendant offered an apology-not after he received the said letter, but in his witness statement filed on November 25, 2013 for the purposes of assessment of damages.”

    I think Cheko should appeal and Dominican public should ship in their support.
    If this money is paid, the claimant will never enjoy it!

    I really do not understand why people are here defending Checko when he refused to defend himself. The man left his fate completely in the hands of the law. If you do not defend yourself in court, the judgement WILL be in favor of the plaintiff. Checko is a police officer, he is well aware of this.

    This is where the UWP boycott policy is killing the ignorant. Checko should know that boycotting a court case can never be anything like boycotting the House of Assembly. Someone should have spoke some sense into his head. Now all the Workers want to blame the Labour Party for the man’s refusal to defend himself. If he had done so he would have surely stood a chance to win. Now that he did’t he had a 0% chance of winning. Be fair and admit that he was advised wrongly…..

    Thompson will soon learn his lesson.

    I will always stand up for the truth and what is correct to say and do.
    I will not encourage anyone to slander the name of another. My parents taught me well and so did my religious teaching, to this day.

    Who steals my purse steals trash. ‘Tis something nothing . . .
    But he who filches from me my good name robs me of what which not enriches him and makes me poor indeed.

    This is why judgment was handed down, that Checko erred and now has to pay $130,000. It obviously hurts his heart. Where a person’s name and character have been defamed, you should not state the Law is wrong. In this case, the Law did what was correct to do.
    Get upset all of you. Give thumbs down. What else is new? Some of you are not on the side of justice and truth. Your true colors are showing that you support Checko, you who have projected that you do not know right from wrong. The day will come when you will stand before God and answer to him for your overall attitude, in words and deeds.
    I do not judge and condemn anyone. I know better than that. God will judge you and your actions will condemn you.
    I do not send anyone to Hel or wish them this terrible eternal end. I know better than that. I am not you. What I do know everyone will pay for their actions. It is always better to do good than bad. Far better.
    Adults, especially those who call themselves Christians should know they are to project good examples that others will emulate. God expects that of us.
    As the Lord said, “Much is required of the person entrusted with much and still more will be demanded of him.”
    I did not set the Ten Commandments and passages of especially the New Testament. Our Almighty Father did, through His Blessed Son Our Lord Jesus Christ and through his inspiration to the disciples.
    Who care to listen and pay heed do so. Who do not care to do so, while you are alive or dead you will not be answering to me but to God, The Creator and Ruler of the earth. Take it or leave it. Follow the correct path or not. Know that God will hold every one of you accountable for defaming the character and name of another and for upholding the one who did it. You are pretending that it is OK to do so. Were it you, you would be singing a different tune.
    This is why the Lord said, “Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah say: These people honor Me with their lips but their hearts are far from Me. In vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrine human precepts.” God is your Judge!

    Libel and slander , from a police calypso. Are not police officers arms of the law. They should have a good idea of how the law operates. Now are we to make the court, the judge and the offended person the bad guys , and the policeman the victim. Well I guess I will just go and steal a car and when the owner call the police ,I will just arrest the police.
    You commit the crime ,you do the time. We are always responsible for our own actions, but we like to make excuses or blame others.

      Now a lot of people make it sound like an attack on calypso which is part of our cultural heritage. Politicians do not mind calypsos sang about them because it enhances their popularity . They never sue because it is a fun thing, just entertainment.

      It is strange that the calypso administration is “tight lip” on this one but we know why. Ghost is a strong supporter of this Government and yes might be very happy. The once calypso king in d valley also a strong supporter why sing songs of joy with this one.
      Finally if people like MaMo , Pierre Charles, Eddison had to sue calypsonians well they would have been extremely rich.
      Is there anybody whose name is ” Ambassador A?” This sounds like a nickname. Who the cap fits let them wear it.

      • Gary
        March 31, 2014

        Why are you so silly, your reasoning is such a folly. The Ghost(Kelly) is just one person on the executive of the Calypso Association, he is not the the Association so why are you a making nonsensical assumption regarding the Ghost(kelly). As to MaMo , Pierre Charles, Eddison not suing it is their personal decision, this has nothing to do with getting rich as you foolishly believe.Everyone is different, Dr. Philbert Aaron has a right under The Law to file a defamation suit to protect his name and the good reputation.

        The last sentence of your comment displays how silly and contradicting you are in understanding the matter saying “Who the cap fits let them wear it.” well the cap did fit Dr.Philbert that is why he filed a defamation suit against Checko.

    Checko’s lawyer must have sold that case. What kind of defense did he put up for Checko? Somebody please assist Checko to appeal. Because if I was a lawyer the first order of business would have been to ask the plaintiff to produce his birth certificate so we could see if his name was or is Ambassador A.

    What nonsense.

    One other thing….a judgement is just that a judgment. If Checko cannot pay he cannot pay!

Checko should sue his lawyers.

    The main reason AAron won is because Checo did not file his defense in time as the law dictates.

    I have gone through the comments written and in my opinion there are people who are just not honest in there comment. First i have to compliment Dr Aron for the decision he took to sue this guy, but remember he was warn before to change the lyric of the song but because checko was playing politic and all UWP supporters made him beleive thats there was nothing wrong with the song, because they all knew who he was singing about, checko refuse to change the lyrics and continue with the song, today thats the prize he has to pay. Now its a lesson for all calypso writers and singers to understand that they must not use the art form to destroy ones character just because you do not support or agree with the person oppinoin or choice. And the person who is looking to see if Thomson Fountain will get justice and hoping he gets more let me let u know that in other for Thomson Fountain to win his case if ever their is going to have one he has to prove to the court that all the information that was reveal by those he hoping to sue is false.(eg) his voice, the emails the transfer of DASS money to his personal account, the purchase of the land and all the rest. If he can prove all that to be false then i’ll agree with you for him to get not just $100.000 but $1,000,000 for compensation. I just hope the message will meet whom it shall meet .

      March 29, 2014

      In recent years/months there have been many crimes, robberies and murders including abuse of women and children in D/ca.; no need to mention names. They should concentrate on singing about them in the hope of eradicating those crimes.
      It looks to me they have a lot to sing about rather than slandering people’s names. There is a price to be paid for slander. It is against the Law.
      Sing about what a beautiful, safe and peaceful place Dominica once was and what it has become today.
      I recently received an email of some beautiful sceneries of D/ca. Sing about D/ca’s sceneries. Sing about Dominica’s carnival which today is more beautiful than previously.
      Sing also about D/ca’s Independence celebration, the Creole Festival, other festivals and the tropical weather, inviting visitors to Dominica especially the tourists.
      Sing about welcoming the tourists.
      I hope some of you get a few ideas of what you could sing about. There is no need to compose and sing calypsos which debase your fellow people. It is a sin; a crime.
      Keep in mind what Our Lord said: “The First Commandment is to love God with all your heart and soul” and “The Second is like it, Love your neighbor -your fellow people – as yourself. The Law and the prophets depend on it.” He also taught us “The Golden Rule – Do unto others as you expect them to do to you.”
      It appears during carnival season of all, some calypsonians as Checko forgot about God’s command. This is primarily where “change must come”. First, love for one another.
      Our Lord said, “When you have done what you are commanded to do, say we are unprofitable servants.” It is in the Holy Bible!

      How many songs have Michael Jackson sang in his young career compared with all the calypsoians in Dominica? How many songs did he sing that continue to thrill millions around the world?

      We have some very good artists in Dominica but how long will their song last compared to Michael Jackson’s, we can count them on maybe one hand.

      It is time our Calypsoians sing songs that can last and that we would like to keep in our collection but most calypso last the season in which it was made and by Ash Wednesday we done with it except you were the person sang about.

      We have talent let us use our talent wisely. Interestingly the Calypso songs that can last never seem to be a hit with the populace and that we must ask ourselves why is it?

      We have a couple very good ones this year which can last a very long time and they can play all through the Lental Season and beyond.

      Way back when Dominican calypsonians have had a bad habit of making songs on people and calling their names. How else would other people know who they sang about? This is why they knew. They love to slander people’s names all because of carnival and the government/police did nothing about it. From now on this will stop.
      Sparrow is an intelligent calypsonian. Note he did not mention the real person’s name. Checko should have done a research prior to using those words, name and job title.

      Sing your calypsos but do not defame people’s character. He is the Ambassador A that Checko sang about. It was by no means an appropriate calypso. These types of calypsos have been sung for years. It is time to stop them and sing some inspiring ones. In this manner, you will not get into trouble. No one will sue you.
      Stay out of the personal affairs of people which is none of your business as you also live your life according to your feelings.
      Dominica is moving on and progressive and so are nationals (or should). It is not stagnant. You should be of likewise mind.
      Our aim and obligation are to teach.. Sing calypsos which should enhance Dominica and inspire nationals especially the youths which will make your country a better and happier place to live that nationals will live in love, unity, harmony and peace.
      Learn from the late Freddie Mendes (RIP): “Make your life a prayer” and some other inspiring ones by other calypsonians.

    What a lesson for our claypsonians. In fact all of us. Talkshows don’t debate laws. Someone or song’s popularity does not measure up in a court of law where laws are debated in a very sober manner. The question is. Does Checko have any right to turn around and sue his lawyer who told him he has a good case to defend? Did his lawyer cautioned him about certain lines? Those lawyers. yes, those lawyers. Is it true that one of those lawyers is urging Thompson to sue those who use his own voice and emails confirming his involvement in what is now known as “transfergate” and “landsgate”? We go see.

      March 28, 2014

      With all due respect and recognition to lawyers for their careers, they, too should be careful what they advise their clients. The Law has a right to uphold national’s character.
      Nationals do not have a right to defame the character of others be it in the form of a calypso. We are in the year 2014. Times have changed. Some of what was acceptable in bygone years are no longer acceptable and should not be practiced when it affects the name and character of nationals.
      Do people not sue those who insult them, swear at them and hit them, be it a slap? Then consider defaming someone’s character and spreading his personal business, whether true or false for all to know and hear. It is a grave embarrassment. Furthermore, if it occurred, it is no one’s business. This is totally wrong. Much irreparable damage has been done to Dr. Philbert Aaron. It is also called smearing.
      Think of this. Dr. Aaron is a married man. That calypso could have easily caused his marriage to break up. Consider the hurt, the pain, etc. of a broken marriage.
      Checko is fortunate he resides in D/ca. If he were in a progressive country, he would have had to pay a million dollars or a few millions.

      Although they could sue, these are in the past. I do not think those who were affected would bother about it. Nevertheless, from now on, let it not recur. If they continue to sing about people and mention their names and nature of what occurred, they, too, will be sued.
      People have a right to protect their name and character. This is what some of you do not realize because you lack understanding and consideration which also boils down to lack of love. God is taking note. His Eighth Commandment is: “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor.” The Law must uphold this.
      In addition, “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.” How many are perfect in this? People must mind their business. God knows that they have enough of that to mind. It is also broadminded to do so. Always keep this in mind. Be a good, caring neighbor. Teach others likewise.

In prior years, people would sing songs about people during carnival. We are in a NEW ERA. Calypso or any other form can be effective WITHOUT including people’s situations.

      What Checko did to Dr. Philbert’s name is evil. He also owes Dr. Philbert a sincere apology. His lawyer should advise him accordingly
      Patience! He who laughs last gets the best laugh. He has won his case.
      From the beginning I did not approve of what Checko did. As also his supporters prodded him on, he was stubborn about it, assuming he had a right to sing that calypso. Dr. Philbert was kind enough to warn him to change the lyrics. As I have stated, they should share his costs.
      Beware of people who pose as friends. They are false friends. The last thing I need is for people to give me false advice which goes against first of all, “Love of neighbor” and especially if they have done me no harm. Why can’t some people not understand that and practice kindness to one another? They call themselves Christians.
      This reminds me, Mahatma Ghandi said, “Were it not for Christians he would have become a Christian.” This should tell us much. We know what Our Lord taught us and as the Church teaches. We are obligated to practice it to one another also according to our parents teaching (if they all did). Mine did and I have not forgotten this discipline. Failure to do this offends the Lord and we are committing a grievous/ mortal sin.
      Our Lord said: “The insults of those who insult you fall on Me.” It includes any harm/hurt we do to others. It is a serious offence to disobey Our Lord. If only people would think of it, whenever they plan to speak, comment on Websites and to write and sing calypsos. We would be doing ourselves a great favour and avoid the result of what could happen to others and to us if we do not practice this godliness.
      Those who have hope of obtaining eternal salvation are obligated “to do as the Lord commanded” us to do especially when it pertains to one another.

      @ Lougaoo mem, are you for real? !! What kind of double standard is this!! So is only UWP people who should take matters to the court? When Thomson Fontaine said he was suing the PM and four others what did you say? :
      “Long overdue. The gang of five will soon find out that every dog has its day, This madness got to stop….”. That was your comments, now Mr. Aaron a Labour supporter sued someone and you are singing a different tune. When Mr. Aaron asked Checko to retract some of is statements, I guess you were one of them who shouted he should not. I hope you will help him to pay the fine. DOUBLE STANDARD UWPITES.

      Checko defamed Dr. Philbert’s character and you do not see anything wrong with that? Were you not one of his advisors? The condition will most probably be if Checko does not pay it he will be imprisoned. He will have to bear the consequences. I hope you will keep him company.

      You know nothing about justice and what really is justice. Until it happens to you, you will not know the difference.
      Let justice prevail. Dr. Philbert deserved justice for Checko smeared his name and character.

      and this is precisely why the doc should have sued all the radio stations who continued to play the song even after broadcasting news of the lawsuit on the channels. I would have sued all of them, especially Q95! I really do not know why the doc stopped with Checko.

        Checko wrote a very good calypso. I mean after all, the essence of calypso is the social commentary and subtle hints, the satire… Nobody’s name was mentioned. If they want to censor the calypsos where would be the fun in that?

        I would make sure that the money vanishes and he have no idea as to where it went to

    • Simply the Truth
      March 28, 2014

      You are so correct. Money cannot purchase a person’s good name, character and reputation which have already been defamed. If only Checko and his supporters give this a good thought of what he has done. The money is only a sort of satisfaction.
      As far as I am concerned, $100,000 is not enough for his evil action, defaming one’s name for life. If he fails to pay that amount, he should be slapped with a higher amount.

      • yes I
        March 30, 2014

        hello…. Checko was just singing on a character that was ALREADY DEFAMED

      • March 30, 2014

        Look at so many times the PM is mentioned in calypsos why haven he sued any one it’s bacause he refuses to take it personally he at least knows it’s entertainment . I guess Aaron dont have a sense of humour and he should be ashamed of himself

    Really Aaron? Save that money. God forbid but you are going to need it “if” you find yourself without a job. I wish you no ill will, my fellow country man.
