Talk show host and journalist Mathias ‘Mat’ Peltier and Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit are set to re-appear before a Master’s  court on November 8, 2010 for mediation in a matter relating to an article published in a newspaper formerly owned by Peltier.

The article titled ‘$5,000 salary-$One Million Assets’ was posted on the front page of The Times on August 29, 2007. This publication had raised issue with what it said was $1 million worth of lands that the prime minister had acquired within a four-week period  in 2005.

Prime Minister Skerrit had taken legal action against Times Publishing’s management after they refused to retract the story. Skerrit claimed the article was defamatory and malicious.

The parties appeared before a Master’s court this morning where the prime minister was to confirm whether or not he was interested in going forward with mediation with Peltier.

    Mouth of the South I guess you will give Peltier the evidence. I have heard nuff allegations made about past and present gorvernments and not one has been brought to court to face trial. All Dominicans worth is to talk talk talk and we have nothing to back it up. Its about time somebody pay for their town. Way to go PM hang him self. Boy made me remember Miss Charles and the bugging case. Tell them who is boss Skerro.

    @ Trevor Johnson, Mr – Know – It – All……..please tell me, did ROOSEVELT SKERRIT ASK THE JUDGE FOR THE MATTER TO BE SENT TO MEDIATION? OR DID THE JUDGE IN HER OWN DISCRETION ORDER THAT THE PARTIES TRY SETTLING THE MATTER THROUGH MEDIATION?

    Oh and do you also know Mr. Johnson that IN THE EVEN THAT THE PARTIES CANNOT REACH A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT THE MATTER CAN BE SENT BACK TO THE COURT SYSTEM?

    So PLEASE call your bon jean the ‘between you and me’ master mind and ask him to get a copy of the court transcript.

    MAYBE YOU GUYS SHOULD KNOW WHY MEDIATION SUITS ROOSEVELT SKERRIT THE MOST….

    Mediation is a process where a neutral and independent person (a mediator) helps the parties in a dispute to reach their own solution. The parties usually agree who will be the mediator for their dispute, except in court-annexed mediation.

    It is an alternative to having a Judge make a decision after a contested hearing between you and the other party. A Judge would give a decision after hearing the case (usually in OPEN COURT), establishing the evidence that is admissible (from any evidence that is inadmissible), and determining how the law applies to the case.

    In contrast to court proceedings, which are open to the PUBLIC, the mediation process is PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL. Anything said or produced in evidence at a mediation session CANNOT be used in a later hearing, except in exceptional circumstances.

  23. September 23, 2010

    @true dominican: Cheers mate! By the way, it is Skerrit and Matt going to mediation not Trevor!

    The bottom line is “how do these politicians who had nothing much before they got in office, all of the sudden have big money to do big purchases?”
    The money is coming from somewhere and it isn’t their salary.
    To many dishonest greedy people in govt. everywhere.

    @MM:

    Are you asking for some handouts too!

    Supporting someone other than your anointed UWP means someone must be benefiting.

    What about free will and choosing on your own?

    This is expected as you are opposed to this government.

    What is it that you asked for and did not receive?

    Peltier wrote an article without fact checking or presenting evidence/documents to support his position-he also did not seek comment from the person whom the article was based on.

    The PM took him to court, accusing him/his paper of defamatory and malicious actions.

    Now a Judge/Magistrate has to find a solution in favor or PM or Peltier.

    If Peltier is to win, he must show that by writing the article, he did not engage defame or cause malice to the PM.

    If The PM is to win, he has to prove that what he accused Peltier of indeed happened.

    Only facts should prevail here….

    September 23, 2010

    I agree with Lycan. PM Skerrit is the lowest paid PM in the Caribbean. Matt has been trying to build a reputation on being controversial and being the quintessential “investigative reporter.” However, he is hardly objective and spend most of his energy, it seems, on investigating Skerrit. Most of his “investigation” has never been substantiated and makes for only good “veranda gossip.” His article in The Time is a perfect example. Skerrit should sue the daylight out of him.

  36. Karkabeff
    September 23, 2010

    If the PM is smart he will leave sleeping dogs lie. In any civil matter (non criminal) as in this case, proof beyond reasonable doubt is unnecessary. Preponderance of the evidence supporting Matt’s position is all that is required to substantiate his position. We all know that it is very easy to come by based on what has been going on. Also, there are lots of public records to support Matt’s case.

    Matt should stand strong, and if needed all he has to do is ask for financial help with his legal problems. I am sure he would get more than he needed. I am one of those who would definitely donate a fairly large sum because the democracy of my country is at stake. This was a blatant attempt by the then young and inexperienced PM to silence the press after having been ill advised by those who were singing for their supper.

    Skersker I know you reading this every chance you get and is not happy with the way Cowpoopoo is telling it like it is but take my advise and drop the matter. You have way too much to loose. As a leader you should know that only fools expect to wing every battle. Therefore you should pick your battles carefully instead of trying to fight everyone with limited ammunition.

    Matt my man keep on fighting for the poor and illiterate of this land. One day you all will be recognized for all the hard work you and Lennox are doing. Stand strong, don’t settle for nada!

    Which mediator in Dominica want to get Skerrit against him. After sitting and listening for an hour or so the mediator will advise Matt and his lawyer to come to a soft and silent comprise. The mediator still needs his government income the day after. Isn’t that simple?

  60. September 22, 2010

    @de caribbean change – BBA, MBA, CPA: No one in DOMINICA wants to hear the truth or believe persons in high places are all hornest well believe it or not it does happen to be true therefore we have to rely on men like Mat, Lenox and others who will continue to enlighten us the people of what ‘s going on and those who dont like it to bad .
    DOMINICA have been turned up side down we are loosing our Island to folks who pretend they care but they really dont, when these men leave office do you believe they will be staying in DA people get real.

So everybody that talk about you or post something about you …you gonna take dem to court Mr PM….HOW CHILDISH IS THAT…this reminds me of third grade students who fight over chalk or something ..there are greater issues in this country that we should be focussing on ..well actually he should be focussing on …roads, education for the youths ….infrastructural development ..just take a look at the hospital if u spend a week there you would understand what am talking about …we have no facilities ….can u imagine a hospital not even having toilet paper in the accident and emergency department….mehn that really sucks and it breaks my heart…..skerro for the sake of your people do some more growing up! everyone has an opinion as long as you know in your heart that you put u best foot out there….but the rate tingz going we need CHANGE!

    The article was right to ask the question three years ago, and the same should be asked in all the major newspapers today. We now know the truth, and all concerned citizens of the land know who is the liar, the thief and the corrupt. There’s no need to mediate or to reconcile in a case that Mr. Skerrit brought on himself. The judge should rule that Mr. Skerrit pay the court cost and all related cost of the proceedings to include compensation for lost time to Mr Matthias “Mat” Peltier. The truth must be heard, prevail and set the victim FREE.

    Matt Peltier needs to look before he leap. He lives in glass houses in Pointe Michel; he should not pelt stones.

    See him..he is so afraid and his conscience bothering him too …one day i know he will confess … you can see guiltiness all over him..
    magwe sa., all these smoke… from white, grey to blue smoke… its burning red hot..the fact is everybody, that is all labourites belive that de man is corrupt, they say “something is happening for true wee, but is my Pm” … when he hears that word “corrpution” he feels like deeping his head in eternal darkness.. he just cannot take again.
    No wonder he cannot face Lennox Linton…cause if Matt is so powerfull with the truth imagine what Lennox will do with all that facts
    what a shame eh! Our PM has placed himself in a quandary not even the great Tony A can extricate him ..what a shame,, then everything he do is questionable..like de 18 – 3 on 18/12/2010..
    well prayer not in that cause God never sides evil.. admitance first and forgiveness after.

    @mouth of the south: Why would the PM be shaking in his boots over this matter? Did you read and understand the article? read this paragraph again and you will hopefully better understand the article

    “Prime Minister Skerrit had taken legal action against Times Publishing’s management after they refused to retract the story. Skerrit claimed the article was defamatory and malicious.”

    The PM should sue Matt for a small fee. Say about $50k? …and donate it to charity. I think these so called journalist need to get their facts correct before putting to pen to paper. This free speech business has it’s limits otherwise we all know what could happen.

    I have noticed a trend with this Prime Minister…He always gets what he wants…so he will be a winner in this case again.

    Mouth of the south he is not in the court for land. The Times will have to provide the evidence to substantiate their claim. If not the PM will win his case. People must learn that they can’t say or write as they please without the evidence to support their claim. If he can’t prove what he has written then he will be liable for defamation.

    go forward with what? we all see de evidence he paid money to the treasury.LEAVE MATT ALONE! MATT CONTINUE TO BRING OUT THE ISSUES THAT AFFECT US. I IF IT WAS NOT FOR U AND LENNOX I WOULD HAVE VOTED FOR THE GUY WE. IF HE GOES TO COURT HIS SECRETS WILL BE TOLD SO HE WANT TO MEDIATE. MATT DO NOT CRUMBLE UNDER THE PRESSURE OF THES PPL STAY STRONG. God bless.
