Over $83,000 raised to assist Linton

Linton thanked everyone who came on board to assist

Some $83,200 have been raised to assist Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, in the matter involving chartered accountant Kieron Pinard-Byne following a judgment by the Privy Council.

Today (Thursday, January 14) is the deadline for Linton to pay $79,324.86 to Pinard-Byrne after the Privy Council ruled in his favor in a long-running defamation court case.

Pinard-Byrne had accused then journalist Linton of libel in the lengthy court matter and the Privy Council had reinstated a judgment of the High Court of EC$50,000 plus $14,000 in legal costs plus 5 percent per annum interest.

For the past few days, radio personality and talk show host, Matt Peltier, has been leading a drive on privately-owned Q95 to raise $80,000 to assist Linton in paying the fine.

Speaking on Peltier’s show, the Hot Seat, on Thursday morning, Linton said the money was raised.

“Let me say to the people of Dominica this morning, we are now in receipt of $83,200 from the people of Dominica, at home and abroad, which means the target that Matt set of 80,000 has been overachieved,” he stated.

Linton thanked everyone who came on board to assist.

“We want to thank everyone for this especially Matt who took the initiative, the q95 team came onboard and the people of Dominica who responded in an overwhelming way from all across the country, the footsoldiers like Tyrone Anthony, ‘Blessings,’ who logged many miles picking up contributions here, there,” he said.

He described the process as ‘humbling’ and ‘uplifting.’

“This was very humbling experience; this was an uplifting experience,” Linton noted.

He stated that Pinard-Byrne will be receiving the payment.

“We can say to Mr. Pinard-Byrne in the next few days he will be receiving a payment, this is going to be handled through the chambers of my lawyers, David Bruney chambers, and the lawyers will be in touch with each other,” he said.

Linton warned that additional costs may be on the horizon.

“There are some matters that have to be paid attention to because the cost we are talking about here, the cost that was awarded in the High Court, there is a determination to be made on the cost in terms of the Appeal Court and the Privy Council, which processes have not been completed at the Privy Council where this matter was heard finally , and so there may be additional costs that I will be responsible for,” he stated.

Linton insisted that he spoke out on the matter in the interest of the public.

“This was one of those cases involving me directly where the public interest, I felt, was being injured, I spoke out, people understood clearly where I was coming from and we had a judgement in the court go against me which came with cost and I think the people understand the inherent injustices at play and have decided that they would step up to the plate in seeking to mitigate against some of those injustices and they have,” he said.

The matter has its roots way back in 2002 when Pinard-Byrne sued Linton because of an article published on a website and statements made on a radio show, on which Linton was a guest.

According to Pinard-Byrne, he was libeled by Linton.

In March 2011 the High Court in Dominica ruled in favor of Pinard-Byrne.

The matter was taken to the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC) in March 2013 and the High Court’s decision was reversed with a ruling in Linton’s favor.

The ECSC, in its ruling, said its decision was based on ‘qualified privilege.’

Qualified privilege gives the press some level of immunity from defamation charges for statements made in good faith, unless it can be proven it was done with malice.

Immediately after the ruling, Pinard-Bryne’s attorney, Tony Astaphan, took the matter to the Privy Council since, according to him, the ECSC’s ruling had narrowed the issue of qualified privilege ‘much too much.’

When the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal met in Dominica in March 2014, the judges granted leave to Pinard-Byrne to take the matter to the Privy Council after Astaphan said his client had fully complied with all the rules as laid down by the court of appeal.

The Privy Council ruled in Pinard-Byrne’s favor in October, 2015.

The matter was the final case to be heard by the Privy Council since Dominica has made the Caribbean Court of Justice its final appellate court.

    Why are my Labourite Comrades so worked up about monies being contributed to assist with the legal fees of the Honourable Lennox Linton? We gladly celebrated and reveled during the spending of approximately THIRTY-TWO MILLION dollars during the election campaign of 2014. We did not say a word when another 140 plus thousand was spent for the renaming of the Melville Hall Airport. Instead we taunted and ridiculed the United Workers Party saying that they were “broke” and jealous of the vast amounts of money that our party was able to squander in a short space of time. Shortly after the election, and BEFORE Tropical Storm Erica, we then learnt that our Country was in serious debt. After this, serious and scandalous revelations began to surface in the International Press such as the “My Dominica Trade House.Com” , the NG Lap Seng and the Alison Madueke debacles, giving credence and validation to what Linton and others had been saying for years. Contd…

      …However, instead of being concerned about the misappropriation of the PEOPLE’S MONEY, some of us have decided to hound and hate Linton and other truth seekers who sacrificed their ALL to expose these wrongdoings. Some of us have chosen to make this a Linton vs. Skerrit and a Labour vs. Workers issue rather than a quest to make our Government accountable for the MILLIONS of dollars of passport monies that seems to have just disappeared in thin air. For the sake of partisan politics, many of us have chosen to rejoice at the victory of one involved in the Layou River Hotel disaster over the one who diligently and selflessly searched for the truth and for answers concerning the millions of dollars belonging to the Citizens of Dominica. It shows that some of us Labourites are so blinded by partisan politics that we will gladly wrap our red handkerchiefs over our eyes and watch our Country sink into the sea for a man who is no greater than any of us. I. for one, am ashamed!

    ALL is well that ends well. so much money are being spent on education. whether it’s at home or business, if money is going out and not coming in, what is the outcome, you must fail. When children behave badly we correct them, or give them a smack. When grown ups make mistakes we say good on you, carry on the good work we will pay. When you run out of money and can no longer afford to pay what happen then. Cash Flow

    OK Linton you got what you owe that man…… so the balance put all the queens name in a bag on public TV and pullup one name and pass the rest of the money to her the or give the rest to Queen show committee to distribute to the ladies. Look jokes on all the sashes will have Flow, DDA and UWP.

    One thing all you UWP people pah feb eh. I really don’t know how this got to Skeritt and even layou river hotel and blah blah blah. This is about a man that wasn’t even into politics who went and spread lies about somebody else and y’all over here defending him like he’s some type of God. Lennox was wrong and he needs to take responsibility. That’s to show you the kind of person that he is. Not even a journalist he couldn’t have been. Cause a professional would never run around speak about someone using he say she say. He’s into politics and he’s still doing the same thing. Speaking without facts. It’s time that this stop. I know if that was one of y’all family member you guys would be singing a different song. The man lied and that’s why he ended up paying for it, if he told the truth he would have won his case. STOP being naive and bias and let’s put the right where it belongs and the wrong where it belongs.

      Have you taken the time as a Dominican to find out the truth.? From reading your post you seems to be quite happy to depend on he/she say.
      Are you concerned about what happened with the Layou River Hotel,. Which is the ultimate reason for this whole fiasco? Or you are willing to close your eyes and say shiw me the evidence?.
      It is your right to ask as a Dominican. And while we respect the decision of the privy council . They are human and many factors influence the outcome of any case. Many an innocent man have gonr to jail or even put to death , through wrong judgements. We hear stories everyday of persons finally freed ftom jail after many years when someone finally decides to speak the truth.
      As a Dominican you only need to visit the Layoh River hotel and ask where is the money.

    So Linton’s supporters also support wrong doings. This man was found guilty of an act and yet he was able to raise funds from his followers to cover his fine. How is it there are people who consider the man in charge a dictator….what then would you refer to Linton as? There’s no way a political person should be legally able to use his position to raise funds for his personal gain.

    And this is the man who wants to run this country? No way I say.

      ISIS did anybody knock your door or call your phone asking for money ? So what is your problem?.
      U W P supporters decided we are not allowing the Lynch mob to take the one man with the balls to ask ” hey where is the money for our passports? . And as a Dominican you prefer to allow those who steal our Dominican dollars walk away smiling. But you are happy to punish the man who tried to stop it ? Or question it? Because the slave master want to shut him up. And you are happy as in history to Lynch the man who fight for you to please your master.?

    Further, Domb-in-ee-cans need to realize that real, durable, sustainable and progressive change never trickles from the top down. Change has always been and will remain an upward movement–from the grass roots (the people on the ground), to the top levels of the power structure. In addition, the people must realize that while power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. In any civilized democracy, there must be the requisite checks and balances, and that’s what a strong, viable and effective opposition does. The people must also be educated to the fact that the opposition plays a critical role in the governance of the country by calling the majority in power to accountability in their stewardship of the resources ( wealth and people) entrusted to their care. Those who are prone and quick to criticize the Honorable Linton, need to realize that the day his voice ceases to be heard in the political arena, they themselves will have no voice like the citizens of China, Cuba,…

    I remain amazed at the paucity of critical thinkers that exist in what is now termed, “an emerging nation”. Dominica appears to be bereft of people with the ability to think for themselves. Many do not see through the smoke screen that is being paraded before the nation, in the continuing saga of these so called “libelous litigations,”as a massive ploy to silence to voice of democracy, equity, justice, fairness, accountability and responsible governance which emanates from Mr. Linton and those in the vanguard for truth.
    The only weapon which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wielded, and that which struck terror to the White power structure of the Southern United States of America, was the very thing that the average Dominican needs to wake up to realize Mr. Linton is using, in his struggle to preserve a fractured democracy in Dominica–his “tongue”. When Dr. Martin Luther spoke of the inequities and injustices of American social system, he became a force to be reckoned with.

      January 16, 2016

      To suggest that Dominica has a deficiency of critical thinkers is foolish on your part., such a belief is the result of your political partisan beliefs, it is absurd to put such a label on your fellow Dominicans. If anyone cannot see through the smoke screen is you, a smoke screen created by Linton with his shenanigan in his quest for power.

      The matter at hand involves a private citizen winning a judgement for defamation against Linton, how can this decision be a massive ploy to silence the voice of democracy in Dominica. Opinions that are held with passion as a result of partisan political beliefs is the measure of the holders lack of rational conviction.To suggest that quote,”Mr. Linton is using, in his struggle to preserve a fractured democracy in Dominica–his “tongue” is ludicrous.Do we really have a fractured democracy, Lol,and just to let you know, in a real fractured democracy Linton modus oprandi would not be tolerated. Thank God, democracy is alive in Dominica.

    The opposition has gotten this government to be on their toes. ..

    There will come the time when the same God shall expose them publicly and it’s only then Dominicans will come to their senses. .
    One observation, the mere fact that Dominicans are willing to help the opposition is good news. .
    Great is the uwp and they shall prevail. We shall overcome someday. . The day is very near when we shall over come and bury this government in the political cemetery. ..

    Its Amazing and simply ridiculous to witness BLACK people, the decendants of Black slaves, rejoice when a white blue eye colonialist uses a white court in his homeland to defeat a black son of the soil.
    These are some the reasons white people can’t respect blacks. Many blacks still prefer the ‘slave master’ over the ‘slave’.

      This may be an uplifting experience but it is truly pathetic and weakening for a leader not to account for his own mistakes. The fine imposed by the courts were a punishment (obviously for a wrong doing) and no one should have to pay for anyone else’s punishment otherwise the lessons are not learned. Mr. Linton should payback everyone who donated to his cause else he really must face the “man in the mirror” and ask himself what kind of leader can’t handle his own mistakes……an ethical issue to say the least.

        You are biased in the extreme.

        Tell me where, when and what time of the day did you hear Lennox Linton appeal to the Dominican people to pay his debt for him??

        If you want to be angry at somebody, maybe you should be angry at Matt or Blessings.

        But then again, if it were your god Skerritt, I’m sure you Labourites all over the world would have rallied around your PM and bailed him out, right?

        Who knows? You all might just get the chance to put up some bail money in the future.

        We the people decide that we want to send back a message that we believe that Mr Linton was judged. Wrongly. Why do you think that the regional justice system could not find grounds against him., But the white man takes it to the white court and suddenly he is guilty?
        Guilty of asking where is the money for the sale of our passports?.

    “Linton warned that additional costs may be on the horizon…. and so there may be additional costs that I will be responsible for,” he stated.”

    Mr. Linton, I have been instructed to tell you the following:

    1. The same God that paid off the $80,000 will do it again even if the amount doubles or reduces. He made a way in the wilderness and He will also prepare a table in the presence of the enemy.

    2. The $80,000 plus other charges to come will not be enough to take care of the health of the enemies.

  21. He described the process as ‘humbling’ and ‘uplifting.’–News Article

    Mr. Linton Sir, you still do not get it, if you are using the term HUMBLE and UPLIFTED with the same breath–you can only be one, not both!

    Yes if I were you I would be” humbled” but that humbleness in me would mean that I felt UNCOMFORTABLE, pertaining to the situation at hand; it is this discomfort which would cause me to watch my acts in the future-

    To say that you feel uplifted is telling us, you have no remorse for what you did –you just have no choice but to pay the fines for you conduct–especially if it did not come from your own pocket.

    My hope is that you will try to watch your attitude in the future for the sake of my Dominica and her people–whoever yours is I have no idea!

    My friend I like this! You spoke for me here, perhaps he did not where I ask him that question a few blogs earlier.

    Now he is quiet and hiding like the same “mountain chicken” he like to label on PM Skerrit, not even a word of gratitude and thanks on behalf of his dear Lennox Linton–maybe because he cannot brag about how much he contributed, because could afford to give any; but he told you guys that he is a multimillionaire–all he needed was 1/10th of one of those millions–good grief!

    I will be holding that one against him in the future.

    This is unfortunate, the feedback mechanism has been disrupted. It works like this: LL runs his mouth on KPB, offends the man and is taken to court. The legal system imposes penalties on LL which he has to pay with the result being that he would think twice before he open his mouth again. It’s not that he cannot talk but he would be careful to know where his limits are and to avoid legal jeopardy.
    Unfortunately, he got people to pay his penalties for him and so the pain that he would have felt, which would have educated and modulated his behavior was avoided so next time he will be just as bombastic, or even worse because HE DID NOT LEARN HIS LESSON!
    The funny thing is that in spite of my personal opinion of the man himself, a lot of what he said was valuable. I appreciate grace and mercy like any other sinner but I just worry that by not allowing him to experience the consequences of his actions we are making things worse down the line.

    People need to think.

Remember also LL had not interest, getting no money, position or fame for calling out what was happening at the time and still going on now. Please if you if you are talking about sinners, look at the prime Minister and wonder why he has so much money and why there is no development in DA. Have you traveled recently to DR, Barbados, Antigua even St. Lucia ? THINK

    January 14, 2016

    As a native, I am alarmed at what the combined forces of ignorance, oppression, and intimidation that characterize the political climate in Dominica. Dominica and Dominicans at large are being held hostage by a select band of culprits who over step and abuse their power; a select few who have vested interest in keeping the masses ignorant, poor, marginalized, and demoralized, so as to control their very existence. Little do the backward masses realize that without vigilant patriots like the Honorable Lenox Linton, the freedoms that they take for granted would completely cease to exist. Dominicans who refuse to think both rationally and critically fail to realize that dictatorships had their beginnings in political intolerance and suppression of free speech, and any country without a strong, viable opposition, eventually loses it freedom to dictatorship. Please Mr. Linton, do keep up the good work for the future generations yet to be born. May God bless your efforts.

    January 14, 2016

    I told myself i was not going to comment on this matter but i have no self control and must add my two cents….Dominicans are able to raise OVER $80 000 for a man who don’t know the time and place to say things and whose mouth continue to put him in trouble and by my guess will continue put him in legal trouble….I am not saying that freedom of speech is overrated but Linton who claims to be educated should know better…..Now on another note queen contestants cannot be sponsored, the spirit of carnival is hanging on by a thread but yet Dominicans can raise large sums of money for a man with a tongue like a loose cannon….but yet the country is hard and we expect the government to do EVERYTHING…..that’s all

      Let the government use the passport money(the money of the people)
      to sponsor the queen contestants.
      The Lord protect the house of the just.
      No weapon against them shall prosper.
      Lennox spoke and wrote the truth.
      What do you expect from a Caribbean Court that is tainted and controlled by politics.
      Where there is no vision a nation perish, thus explains the state of affairs
      Here says the Lord, “my people would not listen,
      so I allowed them to fall to their own demise”.
      If they turn away from their wicked ways, I will save the land and forget their
      iniquities”.

        I was trying not to get caught in this malestrom of misinformation, disinformation etc. but at least if you want to comment, get the facts! This is what frightens me about what is going on in Dominica – someone says something, we are not interested in whether it is fact or opinion, whether it is true or not, if we don’t like the person against whom it is being said, we jump on the band wagon and lo and behold the person is tried, guilty and condemned!

        Lady, the local court ruled in favour of Mr. Pinard-Burne; the Caribbean court which Lennox himself was criticising and many others about potential political influence ruled in favour of Lennox Linton, Mr. Pinard Burne appealed to the Privy Council, the white men in England, they were the ones who upheld the original judgement and the reason why LL now has to pay.

        It would be an exercise in futility for me to try to share my layman’s understanding of the intricacies of the difference between establishing a fact…

        The reason why I try my best to be cautious about coming to conclusions without facts, particularly in this small country where preservation of people’s reputation is so important, is that every Dominican is now exposed to the current modus operandi and could be the next victim!

        As you can see, even when vindicated by the courts, you are still publicly condemned by the bush lawyers! This is DA now, so just pray not to be on the receiving end one day my sister!

The only thing though at the time Lennox was stating fact as a journalist, please remember he was asking questions and according to the facts he wanted answers, not for himself because he wasn’t gaining anything from his statement, he did not have anything to prove to no government it was Dominican who were losing or winning, all people who work at the hotel and their jobs. Lennox loves Dominica he could have worked anywhere in the world he wanted yet time and time he returns of Dominica to serve, something lots of us Dominicans cannot do because we put money first. I am asking you today to understand at the time what questions LL was asking and read the information , read, read and understand , and or maybe you will not be making statement like you are uneducated, I figure you are just misinformed.

    Cameron, the first part of your first sentence is so very true. “The almighty father is in control” and that’s the reason Skeritt has been in power for as long as he is, to alleviate the plight of the Dominican people, and champion a way forward for the masses. Maybe if you disagree with me you can post a copy of Lennox resume showing his achievements, because both you and I know that this guy has done nothing, but run his mouth, and try to impede the forward movement, and development of Dominica. Something the Skeritt administration is trying so hard to achieve.

    • The Evangelist?
      January 14, 2016

      @ Visionary you make no sense whatsoever because how long a person reigns is not based on how good a leader he is. If that were the case then, was Saul a good king? Was Ahaz a good king? Skerrit and his dealings is by very far the worse Prime Minister Dominica has ever had, and I don’t believe Dominica will ever have such an evil PM again. No other PM would have been able to serve that long with the damage he did to the country. Here is why he survived so long: Remember in the days of PJ, OJ, and Mamo, we only had two major parties and one hated the other. Such was not the case with UWP, when we had 3 relatively speaking strong parties. Labor and Freedom that had served for many years and were bitter enemies, came together to vote out the UWP. Yet, it was only a one seat majority. So to keep their politics of hate in power, after the mysterious death of Rosie and Charlo along with evil systems in place, Skerrit has stayed that long.

  39. Look jokes

        Hmmm. I suspect that “beautiful,” to you, means a nation (Dominica) without legal boundaries, in the slightest. A land where anything goes, where people like Lennox Linton can openly flout the law, and when taken to task for it, and ordered to to pay for his breaking the law, wrap himself in the cloak of victimhood that he was only championing the rights of the people through freedom of speech. When will Dominicans, such as yourself, accept that there is no such thing as absolute freedom – not in speech, not in anything, as long as you live in civilized society. There is something called the common will, though (hence the name Commonwealth of Dominica), where for each of us to enjoy even the mere minimum of freedom, we must give up some part of our freedom through compromise and respect for the law. But Dominicans are too steep in their unwavering partisanship to understand. Pitiful.

    “There are some matters that have to be paid attention to because the cost we are talking about here, the cost that was awarded in the High Court, there is a determination to be made on the cost in terms of the Appeal Court and the Privy Council, which processes have not been completed at the Privy Council where this matter was heard finally , and so there may be additional costs that I will be responsible for,” he stated.

    I love to view spy movies especially the ones with double agents. Sometimes I ask myself whether Tony is a double agent. On many occasions Skeritt would be very quiet on issues involving Linton, but Tony would always be at the forefront technically criticizing Linton. When the dust has cleared, Linton is always the hero. For instance, the present situation as regards the case concerning the Iris man verses Linton. Maybe if the money issue was handled between the lawyers of both parties and Tony didn’t go running his mouth to the media, maybe Linton who is allegedly not broke, would have paid his money, matter done. Tony deliberately made those provoking statements in his effort to give Skeritt the impression that anything that involves him or his Government he must speak. But he knew, he knew, all he was doing was to promote Linton’s popularity from strength to strength. Isn’t that a double agent. I might sound stupid to the DLP supporters, only time will tell.

    Patrick John killed people yet pressure was placed on the Government to assist him with his medical issues and that’s supposed to be ok, but Lennox didn’t commit any crime, he spoke for the people of Dominica and raising funds to help him from the racist crime against him seems to be a big problem for some hateful, lazy, jealous Dominicans. Go suck all of you haters.

    Imagine Dominica the poorest of the poor and yet $83,000 collected in a matter of days, not for some poor child needing urgent medical attention or some other well deserving cause, but for a bully with a big mouth with the propensity to tarnish the character of others without proof or evidence.

      January 14, 2016

      So Despite the fact that Dominica is the poorest of the poor, you still have no problems with the millions of dollars for the sales of Dominica passports disappearing into foreign banks and not in our treasury.?

    Linton my humble advice, let an independent body do the dirt digging and do not bring up stuff unless there is proof without a shadow of a doubt. We need evidence, we need paper trail. Take a page from the book of the FBI. I believe you have the interest of the public at heart but your fixation on Skeritt makes it seem personal and about him and you. There is a wealth of policy failure to focus on. We are not Better off than we were 15 years ago. I can begin to list the failures. Agri dead, breezymart closed, DCP closed, a pound of salt fish $18, wage stagnant…….the list goes on.
    I am not the enemy. Skeritt needs to go and there are no room for errors. This is serious.

    Rise above it all Lennox, Love will always outweigh HATE. There will always be some people who will hate you and sometimes for no reason which is the case here, but just remember that there are a lot who will continue to see the evil that has been placed on you too.
    So rise above AS-TAPHANS and the likes. Those thought they had you but true Dominicans came through for you.
    No one can hold water in their hand I always say.
    Some Dominicans don’t even know you, but the hate that comes from their comments has to be part of where you came from because most of them hate the people from Marigot. We don’t beg

      DNO deleted my comment about Patrick John, but the fact remains that for a man like that people called for assistance and that’s ok, but for Lennox who did no wrong, its wrong to ask for help for him. Again people of marigot don’t beg

      • January 14, 2016

        You have to remember Mr. John did pay for what he did so give him a brake and the people accepted that and came to his aid because it was right.
        What you don’t understand because of that action it began the people’s movement against all corruption and slavery going on in Dominica.. Today we all remember some one else who fought for his people too.

Then next day THEY will go about saying THEY have no money things HARD in Dominica. Boss ain’t you a shame? Listening…Plenty more to come. Hope Matt is ready.
    After Erika, people lost families and property. Up till now there are those seeking for HELP. What have You and Matt done or doing to assist? Why can’t Matt call on ALL DOMINICAN to raise funds to help those needy people?! BUT HE CAN RAISE $80,000.00 to pay for your LONG TONGUE….LISTENING!

      What did Linton have to gain from the article?. POOR, HUNGRY, GREEDY,BLACK Dominicans gave because one man chose to fight in Dominica’s interest. Why should he have to pay for it? Just because NON-POOR, NON-HUNGRY, GREEDY, NON-BLACK people are vindictive and want to stay rich on their back? The money that the people gave was earned honestly and given cheerfully and God will bless it. The money that Mr. KPB gets will not last in his hand. And the man behind this whole scheme to shut up and silence Dominica NEEDS to REPENT of his sins because woe be unto him if the Lord decides to step in. God is giving these RICH, NON-BLACK, GREEDY Dominicans a chance to repent. They should take heed and do it now before it is too late.

Tell me this one thing: when My Mr. Pinard Burn gets his money will any of you, except Tony Astaphan, his attorney, get anything from it? By the way, the man is not a Dominican and he can leave DA when he wants and take his money with him? Tony has already migrated from Dominica and only comes here to make his money. Lennox is fighting for you guys, and all you mocking him?

    Why? Because you don’t want to see Lennox become PM? If that thing is of God you all CANNOT STOP IT!

Mr. Pinard Burn will get his money and his money will be his and his alone to be used outside of Dominica.

    Lennox, your sacrifice reminds me of a passage in the bible that is so well known: For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotton Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16.

    Lennox you did it because you SO LOVE Dominica that you don’t mind paying the price to keep it safe and free from corruption. For this, the God that I serve, will lift you up, just as He lifted Jesus and gave Him a name that is above ALL names Philippians 2:9. God ALWAYS rewards actions that are motivated by love.

If anything he have taken food out of someone’s plate, a roof out of someone’s head. He’s responsible for his action and he should have been paying for it. He had ample time to save up but guess what he did. He used the people that he claimed say he loved to pay his dept. Jesus paid my dept and I don’t have to pay him anything in return expect to try to make it through the pearly gates which will be MY benefit.

        I simply USED the example of what Jesus endured, the hate, the curse, the imprisonment, the death…. by the people he came to save, and how God exalted him at the end, to remind Mr Linton that he is in very good company, since God always rewards works of love.

    As a Dominican who resides in the USA, I think of Monday the 18th of January, since it is Martin Luther King’s day. MLK was a preacher who stood for righteousness, truth and justice for all. He courageously fought for the justice of Black People, and as a result he was murdered. As a Dominican, today I am thankful for the freedom I enjoy in the USA, and if MLK had not fought for us, maybe we would not be able to call America home. So thanks MLK.

    The battle that Mr. Linton is in today is no different from what MLK was involved in. Like MLK, Linton has been called names, disrespected by the PM, sued and the list goes on, not for his personal gain, but in good faith, as it is in the interest of the nation.

    I salute you Mr. Linton, though I have never met you. You have proven yourself to be a hero and by this amount paid by the people in such a short space of time, the people have clearly said that they want you as their leader and Skerrit MUST pack his bag and go!

    So we Dominicans local and international, will readily assist someone who should pay for their hot mouth and find it hard to assist others when funds are needed to be raised for medical emergencies etc. Am I the only who finds something wrong with this?

      We Dominicans didn’t seem so upset when 150, 000.00 of Dominican taxes was used for a party for the dear Baroness?. Or the over $30,000,000.00 elections campaign. I guess there was no sick people around then?.

      Don’t you think this type of questioning is more appropriate for the PM elected by the people, for the people …….As leader he should lead by example through TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPECTABILITY.

      FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    The money’s was not raised to assist Linton, the monies was raised for a cause and that is the cause to get them people who are selling our passport to account for the monies that they received from the sale of our properties. We need accountability and we need it now we are fed up of these modern day pirates using our resources and trying to enslave us. We will not stand for it we want accountability and the crap you people have been doing in the country will come to an end very soon.

    As a labourite, I am excited to have been part of this venture. I know that when the history of Dominica will be documented for this era in which we live, no one will be sympathetic to his corrupt regime and the stance that they take in sheltering these useless masers and exploiters! All they are here for is to exploit the careless governance of our nation!

      uwpites never crying ,because we are always the more progressive ones , there is a curse following this labour party, you can never progress under them ,if you are poor ,you will remain poor ,and if you are well off ,then you will lose all what you have,
      go around and see if is not true, the principle of this labour party is to keep you poor ,all they give you is a bread ,and not a job, so you will always need a bread,and you will always have to go to them for it,

      @ Bella why would you say it’s a sad situation? The people are grown people who did this on their own no one forced them into giving up any money. I even heard a poor lady gave her last hundred dollars, she said she will stay hungry while my boy go Las Vegas last year and live high, but that is not people business. Well they did a great job the Privy will be a breeze. Oh and the rapist ministers, and a few more to come. This is just a test, now we know it can be done great lets go.

      where was your concern during the past elections when this labour party government spend millions of dollars to pay airfare to fly in Dominicans from around the glob to come in to vote just that they remain in power? didn’t you have a conscience then?

      Dont worry your head,you have nothing to contribute,but honourable Linton is fighting on behalf of many people.HE MAY LOSE THE BATTLE,but he shall win the war.

    Good, so now Pinard Byrne can pay Tony Astaphan for his services. Just don’t try to close down Q95 mr. Astaphan because the E.U. and other donors will stop their aid to Dominica immediately. They are very strong on protecting human rights.
    You know, I could feel that this was not largely political but the response from the public was like enabling them to finally speak speak up too. This is so because I know, several DLP supporters, who contributed too. The guys in charge better take heed.

      Sharon you have a short memory. How about the money that was spent on the party for Baroness Mawhinney? Don’t you think that would have been better spent on helping the victims of tropical storm Erika?

      tell that to the government who spent in excess of half a million dollars paying entertainers who were here for the 2014 elections.. ask the government ministers to donate a percentage of their salary towards the rebuilding..if the citizens chose to come to the aid of Mr Linton who stood to gain nothing from what he has to now pay to this gentleman but for except that there be more transparency and better accountability why criticize.. they government was elected to do the rebuilding part so let them do it.. they seem to be able to find monies to do every other thing.

      I think the $31 000 000 or $32 000 000 give away during the 2014 election would have done better.
