PM, Saint Jean’s legal team prepares for courtroom showdown

St. Jean (left), Skerrit

The legal team representing Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Parliamentary Representative for La Plaine Petter Saint Jean in a much talked about dual citizenship matter, has said that it will be ready for whatever judgment is handed down by the courts on January 10, 2012.

Lead counsel for Saint Jean and Skerrit, Anthony Astaphan, said at a press conference recently that his team is currently preparing an appeal in the event that things do not go in their favor.

“We have prepared and we will be preparing if the inevitable is that we don’t win, we will be preparing a notice of appeal and an application for stay of execution before the 10th. In fact we’ve started working on it already,” he said.

He further stated, “Only a fool will go in there thinking he’s going to win a fight without taking precaution that he might lose. We are not taking the court for granted. We are not taking anything for granted. We are saying nothing except what the issues were, that there was no evidence the prime minister applied for, had, or used a passport at all in the case. That gives us confidence that we’re going to win. But we are taking precautions in the event that we don’t.”

The United Workers Party (UWP) claimed through election petitions, that Skerrit and Saint Jean contested the December 18, 2009 general elections holding both Dominican and French citizenship, a matter not in line with Dominican law.

The UWP has also expressed confidence in their case.

    AT LONG last the time is nearing for Skerrit and St,Jean to go on out about their business with all the money that they took from us the poor people of Dominica.
    It is so shameful that Dominicans do not hold hold their elected pal Reps to a higher standard of accountability.

    Utter nonsense, how can we as a modern nation allow something like this to take so long to settle. This is a matter that should have been determined within three months at most. Now after almost two years, a critical matter such as this is still undetermined and we are hearing of possible appeals, shame on us. The legal system has failed us and we must do something to fix it.

    The issue of eligibility will come up from time to and if we want to continue to claim to be a democracy, we must have the proper sociopolitical infrastructure and mindset to have these matters adjudicated within six weeks of a legitimate challenge.

    I wish there was the interest in our country to address this shortcoming. It seems like the persons best suited to deal with matters such as this are not yet actualized to the things of nationhood.

    I thought you were addressing the rule of DOMINICA’s law. Then why are you rambling on about UWP winning, UWPites, and 2 minus and 16 DLP.
    The THE COUNTRY”S RULE OF LAW would win if the court does not favor Skerrit not UWP
    We should feel proud as a Dominicans to see that the rule of law is up held in Dominica if the court does not favor Tony’s team. It’s okay if Skerrit secures his seat later. The objective is to secure the rule of law.

  10. let justice prevail
    January 4, 2012

    What a serious Constitutional CRISIS Dominica is in. What if the court’s judgement goes against Skerritt and St. Jean? It would mean that both politicians of the ruling DLP committed an illegal act against our electoral laws. They knew, they knew, they knew. Didn’t an Ambassador want to contest that same election of 2009 for DLP, but was discouraged to go up by colleagues, because of his US citizenship? Who wrote to the French Embassy requesting that their French citizenship be renounced? Why?

    Application for stay of execution before the 10th. of July? Stay of what Asstaphan? Skerritt and St. Jean must be told to vacate their sits fortwith by January 11th. the day after the verdict is given against them. Citizens of Dominica must cry out loud and let their voices be heard.

    Skerritt would not be able to bring the country together, sitting in the chair of leader, working as PM, signing Agreements, doing whatever, after he is found guilty of disobeying the Constitution and electoral laws of the land. Hope the Dominican people are not faced with that dilemma. What a travesty of justice that would be.

    But in Dominica presently, anything goes. How could a leader of any country exclaim that No Law, not even the Constitution could prevent me from………. Even before and certainly after that statement several strange things have been taking place. Many allegations have surfaced. Facts, irrefutable evidence have exposed the many ills and corrupt practices that the people are not informed about by the authorities.
    Dominicans have been kept in the dark.

    Dominicans must be worried at the present state of affairs. It doesn’t auger well for the future development of our beautiful land.
    NEVER again SLAVERY my people. MASSA DAY DONE.

    I am Dominica.Are you?It seems to me the way people are speaking its like they dont want good for the country.I think its time we stand together as one and stop bringing down each other.We need to ask important questions like if UWP wins the election what resources do they even have to start off with? will they be able to manage the country without the necessary resources and if so for how long.they have a prblm with the PM seeking outside help so it means they will try to do it with the little money we have in the economy and that will not work.We all have a conscience and I am sure you all know workers CANNOT run this country.zoh machastay mem mem mem.
    our country will fall apart.
    the decision made by the court whether or no Skerrit wins, He have left Dominicans with many improvements whether or not some are ignorantly saying they dont see it but the improvement is there.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion!! I rest my case.

    its amazing to see how unlearnt a few dominicans are when we live in a country where education is free. reading through the comments on dno makes a person with sense feel bad to b dominican. its always a politic and never a positive advise so one can balance or let me say hadly a positive comment so one can balance.its not about skero or eddo or about ron or petter its about dominica. i am a supporter of the dlp but if the courts should decide that skero and peter must vacate their seats then they have the right to do what they want as to appel or vacate,the same for the uwp they can appeal or live it alone but at the end of the day its the people who spoke they wanted skero and petter and they voted them.ron did also contest while holding dual citizenship why is it none of the uwp supporters have condem himwhen he has openly stated that he ran as a us citizen. have they proved that skero and petter ran as french citizens?thats whats important proof. ron condemedhimself and dont tellme he was being honest because if uwp had won he would b silent. if we truly love our country lets first be honest and call for change of that british imposed law. also lets see things for ourself and dont allow politricktians to fool us. i support labour but if they are wrong i will boldly say they are wrong.

      I so much agree with you charles.IF Domininca was the land of the most uneducated before,I would kind of symphafy with them,but since skerit becomes prime minister he has done every thing in his power to make education his number one piority, for me to know that there are still so many unlearnt in dominica,sometimes i am so ashame I dont even want to read comment on DNO.Every thing now adays is skerro that wrong they not able to see the good that has already been done where development is concern but all they wish is that the countyr fails.My honest opinion is that the court should ruled in skerit and st jean favor cause they were not the first in the histroy of Dominica’s politices that contested having a forign passport,and if the ruling have to go against skerro and petter then those that was involve in the same act before should also face a penalty.What is good for the goose is good fot the gander. I’snt that fair? (Thats my opinion pliz don’t crucified me for being honest)

  22. Man in Dominica
    January 4, 2012

    It seems absurd to me that this lawsuit is proceeding now, after Skerrit has been in Parliament since 2000 and Prime Minister since 2004. He’s participated in election after election without any such challenge to his candidacy, and this lawsuit was filed only after he won the last election in 2009. Regardless of whether Dominican law actually prohibits someone with dual citizenship serving in Parliament (apparently a previously unsettled question of constitutional interpretation on which I have no opinion), the time to raise that challenge is when the names are being put on the ballot to contest their eligibility. Not after they have been certified as winners and have taken office. To declare in 2012 that the election in 2009 was invalid will cause nothing but confusion (what does that do to all official government acts and legislation since then?), yet it seems that is what the UWP is seeking. But I can’t tell from these DNO stories what result would actually follow from Dominican law if the UWP won.

      January 6, 2012

      I agree with this comment. The eligibility of anyone going into office to be part of any party should be verified and confirmed. The country should not wait till the man is appointed as prime minister and has represented the country all over and now to question his status. Our policies should be looked at and adjusted. We all as Dominicans look silly now the man is in office. Our focus should be on developing the country and we should all work together. I am no supporter of DLP or UWP.

    The delay strategy – if the decision is such that the PM and St Jean are found guilty they are not staying. Dominicans must insist that they leave immediately. The court cannot declare you an illegal Pm and you are still seating making decisions- that is reason for riot. In fact the opposition lawyers should insist that they pay back the money , and go to jail.
    We are depending on the courts to act on behalf of justice not on behalf of crooked politicians and senior counsels.
    If the decision is against Skerrit we are not taking any directions from Skerrit as PM.

      “win, lose or draw”, any way the decision goes there will be an appeal from either the petitoners or the respondents. That is expected. There are rules and procedures of the court that must be followed. If there are no rules for the orderly conduct of society, what do we have? Strife, chaos, confusion, riot etc. I suspect some people prefer the later scenario to an orderly settlement of this very important matter. We must not allow our emotions to determine how we move forward on the matter if the court was to rule against our individual biases. By the way. Once the court has ruled – next week or later in the year, will it answer the vexing question of whether we allow Dominicans with dual citizenship (French, British or American) to participate in our electoral process? Whether Messrs. Skerrit or St. Jean contested the elections illegally or not will certainly not put to rest the issue. We still have decide as a nation on the matter. Should we or should we not allow people with dual citizenship to participate in the electoral process. let us debate ther issue openbly and freely.

    one can have dual citizenship and dont carry a passport.
    the constitution forbids that sh**.

      I don’t think so. I think that the premise here is … did Skerrit as an adult ask for/apply for or receive a French passport … that is it … and the answer will be NO.

      I am not taking sides … it is that the whole thing has been blown up into a war of words and the whole point has been missed.

      If he has a passport or not … not has he citizenship in France (as many here do).

      It’s not a case of whether we like this or not … it is about facts …

    If this case is about whether the PM and St. Jean own and travel on a French passport then it is a no brainer. There are many ways to find that out so if they own them they must step aside if not this should be the end of this case.

    When will Dominicans rise up and face reality? Is it not time for us to see that Tony Astaphan and members of Skeritt’s legal team are the only winners in all these court battles? If thre is any doubt about who the winners are, go back to 2004 when Mr. Skerrit was made the pm and you will find that his legal team, team mates like Mano, and himself have become millionaires in 7 yrs, while the country on a whole has gotton poorer, So to keep money coming, Tony and his legal team are always busy to defend the pm and they care less about the state of the country, let alone, our pride as Dominicans.

    • Huh?

      Except of course that is has not got poorer. SOME have granted … but as a whole Dominica is growing … sorry I know you want to believe otherwise … but there you go..

      The British got rid of Gordon Brown … because they were bored and stupid. Now they have a huge problem.

      careful that you get what you wish for.
