PM Skerrit among many in Thomson Fontaine lawsuit

Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, is among several prominent individuals and a privately-owned radio station to be sued by Dr. Thomson Fontaine for what he described as ‘several months of unabated defamation’ of his character.

Others on the list are attorney Lennox Lawrence, senior counsel Anthony Astaphan, Kairi FM Radio and its owner, Frankie ‘Krazy T’ Bellot and Simeon Albert.

Fontaine told DNO the lawsuit was initiated because he has been the subject of a number of lies aimed at maligning his character.

“These I consider libelous and simply aimed at trying to destroy my good name,” he said, “including allegations from the prime minister that I was a thief because I have stolen money, I have stolen land and all of those different allegations that have been made against me.”

Fontaine described the allegations as ‘completely false and untrue.’

“I am seeking redress from the courts,” he stated.

For weeks, Fontaine has been the subject intense criticism by some members of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) after it was revealed that he had transferred some US$27,000 from DAAS’ account to his personal account while he served as secretary and has been accused by the DLP members of misappropriating the funds. They also allege that he is involved in the transfer of lands belonging to DAAS.

Thomson said the allegations have been continuing for several months now and it is time for the court to intervene.

“It’s been several months now and it continued unabated and that action is to ask the courts to intervene … we will be seeking, of course, for monetary damages, as well as an order from the court that these allegations cease,” he stated.

He said the lawsuit is presently being drafted and those involved will be served soon.

Fontaine stated the allegations have not affected him on a personal basis but it has raised questions in the mind of the public of his truthfulness and integrity.

“It’s more a question of the public’s perception and how the public sees me as an individual and whether or not I am telling the truth,” he said.

He noted that even if the allegations stop, he will not put a halt to the procedure.

“I am going ahead, full press, because I think that given the length of time and the amount of harm that they have attempted to do to me, I think it’s only fair,” he said.

He is being represented by Joshua Francis and Gildon Richards.

Meanwhile Astaphan told Kairi FM news that he got knowledge of the lawsuit through the media and has not received any documents on the matter.

“I find it very interesting that we are going to be sued for relying on the very audio that Thompson Fontaine, the audio of Clayton Shillingford, minutes published by the DAAS and local Chapter, and Court documents in relation to the land and the declaration of assets of Mr. Robert A Phillip, and reading emails that have not been contested or tried,” he said.

He described the matter as ‘exraordinary.’

“It’s an extraordinary case, that’s going to be an interesting case,” he said.

    4) One Cleaning Supply at a Time – Instead of cleaning one room top to bottom then moving onto the next on cleaning day, pull
    out one cleaning supply and use it everywhere you need to in your home.

    When apartments get the unit “make ready” for the next tenant, they usually employ a cleaning service to complete this.
    Is there anything special that the cleaning service needs to know about.

    I’m so amazed at the amount of times I hear that someone in government is being sued. This people spend more time in court than they do running the country. If they not traveling spending money the treasuries borrowed them the in court defending something or the other I hope the treasury not paying the courts too

    , “the USA authorities will want to know what part DNO played in the scam .Remember Sanford in Antigua?”(Emile)

    Emile, that is the worst bit of garbage I’ve read on DNO thus far, in the first place the Stanford affair is a different thing, it had nothing to do with Antigua, nor the people of Antigua, except he invested the money he stole from people in the United State in his pansy scheme on the island of Antigua.

    Thomson situation is different, in that the Bank involved notified Clayton Shillingford of the transaction, which they were obligated to do, and one of the only question they could ask Clayton could be as simply as this:

    Are you aware that someone has transferred, or has attempted to transfer X amount of money form the DAAS account?

    The Bank was not even obligated to tell him how much the amount was, they would probably ask him do you know Thomson Fontaine. If his answer was yes, the matter would be dropped right there and then.

    If he said I do not know anyone by the name of Thomson, the Bank would immediately call the police, or the Bank security would have detained Thomson until the police gets to the Bank where the would have arrested him. That’s how it works in America you see, when you do not know you believe every bit of nonsense the politicians in Dominica say.

    Thomson did not commit any crime in America, nor in Dominica that we know about, perhaps he must have swipe some of his parents sugar when he was a kid, but all of us thief we mother sugar, and pinch of a bit of salt fish when they were not looking.

    Kid Francisco did just that okay:

    Hahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

        March 27, 2014

        If that question “are you serious” is in response to what I wrote above, you had better believe I am more than serious!

        Here is another situation, one day I saw a signing ceremony on DNO where some Grenadian signed some contract with a man who claimed that this California company located in Solvang a city located between Los Angeles, and San Francisco, actually it located a few miles North of the City of Santa Barbara.

        This so called CEO of the so called company gave the address of her recycling plant in Solvang, not knowing kid Francisco Telemaque, a modern day sleuth: Lives in Los Angeles.

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

        I am close to Solvang, as a matter of fact I reside approximately 115 miles plus a few miles from Solvang, I got up one morning and drove to the address, where this CEO claimed she owed and operated a garbage recycling plant where she would recycle all of the garbage she proposed buying from Dominica.

        When I got to the address, I was dumbfounded to find the address of her Recycling plant is located in a highly developed gated residential neighborhood.

        No such thing as a recycling plant existed there; as a matter of fact the state of California, nor the city of Solvang would have issued a license for anyone to recycle garbage in that neighborhood. I took pictures of the house, and neighborhood, and disseminated them in forum, I also made the pictures to none other than Parry Belot,I thought they would make it on DNO, unfortunately they did not. So, Timothy can stay in Dominica, and lie, but if I wish to embarrass him, there are sources, such as fact finders I can use to prove him true or false okay!

        If Timiothy said he sent children to the US for treatment; if we wish to verify his claims we can.

    When I looked at the names and faces of those sued by Dr. Fontane was left with the following questions:

    1. Have I not heard the same voices talking against bringing to justice those involved in the Christmas Morning fire Bombing of GON Emanuel house?
    2.Are they not the same voices on the French citizenship matter?
    3. Are these voices not the same ones speaking in support of the sale of our passports to just about anyone?
    4. Are they not the same voices that were very vocal on the true owner of villas?
    5. Are they not the same voices during the fertilizer bobol issue?
    6. Are they not the same voices during the garbage bin bobol?
    7. Are they not the same voices giving support to the nomination of ABK for president of Dominica?
    I have many more questions to ask but time does not allow me to. DNO, I am simply asking questions and did not make any statement of fact. So please post

    Some of all you UWPites too foolish and gullible… THOMSON CANNOT SUE ANYONE PERIOD!!! MARK THESE WORDS AND TELL ME IF YOU WILL HEAR WRITS WERE SERVED!!!!!

    The man just say that hoping to be released from under the microscope of the DLP Machinery, but it won’t save him!!!

    Look at the facts and the reason why he the Thomson and his lawyers won’t bother waste their time ( I am not saying they won’t send letters to the persons mentioned, they just won’t take any further action).

    Facts are stubborn things and that is what the Courts deals with not hear say:

    1. Thomson was Treasurer of the DAAS
    2. Whilst being treasurer he did transfer an amount of money from the DAAS chequing account into his personal Account at his staff credit union – whatever the reason we don’t know…
    3. He was asked on many occasions by many persons to return the money to the DAAS Account – which he eventually did
    4. He did resign citing other directors lack of confidence in him
    5. He did purchase land in Rosalie that once belonged to a Mr. De -Filips – His story totally conflicts with the past President story so it will be good for the facts to come out as to who sold him the land… he said from DAAS the past president said Rosalie Estate but the Fact is he did purchase the Deceased De-Filips land at Rosalie.
    6. There is judgments against him for non-credit card payments in the United States…

    So UWPITES please tell us on what grounds is he suing? Ask him which information listed above is misleading or damaging??

    Wicked souls they just start paying!!!!!!!! More to come…… stay tuned to the Next Level show…lmao!!!!!

      Joe, which law did he violate again? who or which institution was defrauded? Could you also tell us whether anyone or any business entity whether for profit or non-profit lost any money?
      Maybe you and the others who peddle this cheap propaganda need to inform yourselves of the law, rules and regulations, as well as policies and procedures relative to business operations in the USA, that information should help you and the others to shed your ignorance. But again, it is not convenient for you all to do so, because that is the nature of the new labor . Lies, propaganda, mephis, mischief, slander, and character assignation, and of course the need to belittle anyone who does not sing from that disgraceful hymn sheet.
      Intellectual dishonesty is a most despicable act, because it attempts to play on the ignorance of the less informed, and those not able for one reason or the other to acquire the ability to read and understand, as a result of these tatics by you and your friends fall in the arena of Hitler’s chief propagandist.

    The problem for Doctor Tomson Fontaine he has agreed that he took the money and put it on his personal account and open a CD. But he never produced the CD at the request of the DAAS, Gabriel Christian.

    He said he bought the land from DAAS and one hour later Doctor Clayton Shilling said he did not pay DAAS. Tomson also said the land measured 11,000 square feet. The certificate of title said over 14,000 square feet, Clayton told him his explanation was news to him.

    Tomson said Clayton knew about the money transfer. Clayton said we know nothing about that.

    I seems if tomson is concerned about his character the person he must sue id Doctor Clayton Shillingford since PM and the Next Level show was just reporting what transpired between Clayton and Tomson.

    The threat to suit is a desperate move to stop truthful information from coming to the attention of the public.

    On the question about his debt he will have to report the Court Record web site in Maryland.

    On the question of misappropriation it is Tomson and Clayton that introduced the word to the Transfergate. They both said if he used it for his purpose it would be misappropriation. Doctor Shilling said that he did not have proof that Tomson did not use the money for his own. Tomson has not proved that he did not use the money for his own.

    The question is where is Tomson going with that suit and how is he going to establish his case in the first place.

    My twelve year old daughter asked me how can he deny what he said and want to take somebody to court for repeating exactly what he said?

    Tomson wheel and coming again

    Over the last three months, the Sued Team appeared to have gotten out of control with the Fontaine Affair. What they didn’t realize is that Fontaine was allowing them to hang themselves. They moved from politics to personal , in fact they even brought Dr. Fontaine’s wife in the mixed. Regardless to where the case goes, Dr. Fontaine will know the person who has been crooking him by supplying the many emails, land documents and bank documents from DAAS to the Sued Team.

    Both Dr Fontaine and Dr Shillingford seem to agree, at least in part, with what the people being sued have been saying.
    Fontaine’s excuse was that, although he’s a financial wiz, he made an “error in judgement” regarding the DAAS money.
    And he “has not suffered any personal damage” from what has been said.
    So, the suit must be too stop what’s being said from being said . . . .

    These allegations appear to me to be just to gain political advantage. such methods are usually employed by the desperat, those who feel the pressure of political change,

    What is an aggravating feature here is the continuous comments by Astaphan, already attempting to reduce the damage done, if one has to manufacture untruth’s against the character of another person irrespective of political persuasion it is vital that what is said is backed up with solid in your face evidence.

    It is an old saying but true none the less “empty vesels makethe most noise” and this appears to be a lot of stupid untruths doctored to appear to be the truth when the staements made were clearly not true, both Libelous, and slanderous, the law is designed to protect the wronged and to censure the wrongdoers.

    the sound of empty bells is ringing and the legal process has commenced let us thereforew trust that those responsible have all their ducks in a row which in my opinion is an impossible task let the truth be evidenced in court and the wrongdoers censured

I am truly very disaapointed with this f=Fontaine man I am not going to say that I still support the UWP and now I change but we are not going to win any elections with all those documentary issues about him. he hasn’t denied all what was said specifically especially the issues with the DAAS and the land matter, SMA and courts judgment against him in the usa.

    This is the perfect example of my last comment on DNO. Questioning Mr fountain’s judgement. Is this the man who wants to be part leadership of this country?. A man with no spine. Can you believe having a leader like that leading dominica, A man wants to leader a country should have strong backbone. These guy is LAME. This guy is not ready for prime time. Just think of what Barack Obama goes through everyday from the republicans in America, he is not American, he is muslim, he takes from whites and give to blacks, he is a terrorist etc. Have you hear of any lawsuits by Obama? This is a leader with a spine. D/A people, IS THIS WHO YOU WOULD PUT IN OFFICE TO LEAD YOUR COUNTRY? THINK ABOUT IT. Are you kidding me. A man who cant take political game talk. Toddler like attitude. Hit the road jack.

        Sue Them, Let me tell you. The only perfect leader who ever walk the surface of this earth is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. For you to seat there and say this man is a perfect leader is troubling. A man who have not been tested in the political arena and lead or part lead a country should not be labeled has a perfect leader, Why, because no man is perfect. One thing i can say is, any man who want to be a part leader of a country who starts by filing lawsuits against the people of the country before he is voted into office, its dictatorship awaiting to arise. All with do is seat on our asses and blame government for lack jobs and corruption. Every government is corrupt. From Iceland to New Zealand. The most Advanced ones are the most corrupted ones. Government has its own responsibilities of jobs. Law &order & Security, Sanitation, Education, Medical, Roads and Highways for example. these are what a government’s responsibility. The private Sector needs to play its part also. We who are seating there next to our computers waiting for the next comment on DNO, just to vote like or dislike, need to get up our behinds and work the land and stop waiting for government. Instead, you know what we do? Some of us drug trade the Atlantic, Have their boats short gunned, and those who by the mercy of god who survive come back lying saying they were on a fishing trips. I am not a fan of any political leaders, they are corrupt, lying, full of greed, and list goes on. One election i voted for one of the brightest mind in dominica. One i thought who would take our country out of the slum and make it a shining star in the Caribbean. She was the Dame Eugenia Charles. May her soul RIP. With all the starts Charles had, she did not run our country well,, Why, because run the country as though only ROSEAU only was dominica and the rest the country faded away. Sue Them, When we look around our country today, This young leader we voted into office Ten year ago, who went out literally begging and forging relationships with foreign leaders, regardless of all the faults we choose to pick on, has done more for this country than what E.O.Leblanc to Pierre Charles combine. The things he has done is obvious. So dont give me your bull crap nonsense about perfection.

      Dear MR Lenpro50, According to information reaching me DAAS means ” Dominica Academy of Arts and Science” .Do you know wether it is really a school? If so who is the Principal. The address I can find for the records is DAAS, P O Box 27254 Washington USA, no zip code.
      Dr Fountain who is Treasurer says it is a nonprofit organization . Dr Shillingford whom is President says it is a charitable and civic organization (so he is not the President of a college or school). Gabriel Christian who is Vice President says they had discussions with the Smithsonian Institute and the US AID office . So what is it?

      • Emile Zapatos
        March 26, 2014

        @ Lenpro50, here is something that bothers and confuses me. Fountain is sueing because people are talking about the things that he admits to doing ,and defends his actions by calling it” a lapse in judgement”. Lennox Linton ,Gabriel and Shillingford are defending him by saying the same thing.
        So how come an IMF employee with diplomatic status can work , invest and purchase property, and even have annual rafles to raise funds.
        How come he can deposit checks that belong to DAAS in his own account (by his own admission). How come he has title to land that belong to DAAS.

    • The Baptiste
      March 26, 2014

      lenpro50, you are not only shameless, you are also very dishonest, and is very loose and convenient with facts and instances.
      You, as well as all the persons named in this law suit are claiming that Dr. Fontaine is not eligible to be the minister of finance as a result of actions he took, after been instructed to do so, in which no money was lost, no law was broken, no one was defrauded, no institution was defrauded, this is the arguments you and the persons against whom the suit is been filed, are basing your arguments on.
      Now, let us compare and contrast those made up assertions, with the following:- (1) Skerritt as minister of education, a member of parliament, and the cabinet of Dominica, allegedly issued a check in the amount of over $14,000.00 to National Petroleum (NP) in payment for a shipment of petrol. Issuing a check knowing that you do not have the funds available in the account to honor the check is against the law in Dominica (a Bounce Check). If you will recall some months ago a concert promoter was arrested in Dominica and successfully prosecuted for issuing a bounced check, yet Skerritt is the minister of finance, recall, the underpayment by the same Skerritt as minister of finance over $51,000.00 in taxes due on land transfer due to the state, the refund to the Treasury of over $500,000.00 in the bin bobol scandal, in which it is alleged came from a bank account in Dominica, under the control of Skerritt’s real estate attorney, sent to a bank in Antigua, and then to a bank in Barbados, and back again to Dominica.
      (2) Mr Astaphan, as attorney representing the buyer of a piece of land containing 17.4 acres of land was issued by the National Bank in the amount of over $135,000.00 to pay for the land and provide the bank with the title to 17.4 acres of land His client was T. B. ) Mr Astaphan returned to the bank a title for 7.4 acres, 10 acres less) and a receipt for a little over $65,000.00 with no explanation for the over $75,000.00 difference, nor the 10 acres of land short. In other words the bank was defrauded of over $75,000.00 at least. This allegation has been around for many years now, in fact it was the result of a Marpin TV interview by a gentleman who was employed at the national bank as the credit manager, and Mr Astaphan is yet to mount a credible defense or denial.
      (3) Lennox, a practicing attorney and officer of the court, currently has a case before the court, for allegedly defrauding the Washington Times of over $80,000.00 in advertisement fees for his company whose value was $20.00, yes TWENTY DOLLARS. The court is been asked to debar, in other words strip Lennox of his privilege to practice law.
      These are the main prosecutors of Dr. Fontaine. Both Mr. Astaphan and Mr. Lawrence as officers of the court must be familiar with the legal term, that says “He who comes to the court seeking justice must come with clean hands” or something like that.
      Clearly, from the issues surrounding these three, neither of them is in any position to cast aspersions on the character of anyone, not even a common thief, far less an innocent individual like Dr. Fontaine, who has done nothing wrong.

      @lenpro 50. Is it that you don like the idea of Dr. Thompson suing them because of the damages you know it will do to the DLP camp, of which you are part of? To any wise and open minded Dominican, after hearing of Dr. Thompson’s action, the first thin that comes to mind is why would Skerrit and team not sue their critics for several allegations made? In fact we know they threatened to sue Matt but when it was time to face up at the court they quickly settled with Matt in secret and forbid him to give information. Why? Is it because they KNOW there are dead elephants in their closets that will open up some can of worms? Dr. Fontaine has demonstrated to us the importance of following the legal procedures although he knows it is corrupt as well. Good job Thomo

      It looks like DNO will have to publish them. DNO has allowed the PM’s name to be defamed for some years now. What with all those adverse comments against the PM, calling him corrupt and other derogatory comments, numerous thumbs down for those who support the PM, DLP and numerous thumbs up for those who support Linton, UWP. Well, this is something else. Let us see what will happen next.
      It does not pay to project preferential treatment towards one Party. For when trouble starts, the Media will be involved. The Media serves everyone with no exception. The Media should always be neutral.
      Report, publish/post the news as it occurs and the truth but never project that they take sides. If DNO reverts to previous comments, it will be observed that some who comment on this Website have accused DNO of leaning towards UWP and not DLP.

It’s years now since Fontaine, lenox, Matt, Angelo, and many more have been calling Skerrit’s name in all kinds of allegations and not one time has Skerrit sued. The question is , why? The answer is very simple. Skerrit knows anytime he tries to sue some ugly, stinking, dirty worms will start to polute the atmosphere and will lead to where many dead rats have been smelling for years. Fontaine has none of that and he has put them on the back foot. I hope Skerrit gets his accounts ready to show the world.

      you talking about modus oparandi and relating it the labour party. Are you forgetting for years that Q95 and Lennox have been bashing the Prime Minister and bringing all kind of accusations against him with no supporting documents or proof.

      The labour party is different, we come with facts and supporting documents. So tell them UWP , we labour party rule and we can’t be touched on court matters.

      Let thompson go ahead with the suit because now he will be bringing in others in the public eyes who have clearly remained silent on the matter. Persons like gabriel christian and other members of the DAAS. In my opinion he should just leave that alone.

      Take your blows bro, you are in the political ring and it comes with pressure. If you can’t take the pressure get out now because all of these things will come back to hunt you one day.

    “Thomson stated the allegations have not affected him on a personal basis but it has raised questions in the mind of the public of his truthfulness and integrity.”

    Thompson, one need to be very careful with what they say when they are contemplating the litigation of matters in court, unless you simply wish to fight just for the hell of it, the statement in the quote above could limit the amount awarded by a court.

    In a situation you said the allegations has not affect you on a personal basis, means that there is no damage, may result in a limited amount of awarded for damages. the greater the damage the allegations caused it the monitory compensation one can demand.

    In this case if you applied for a job, and as a result of the allegations you were refused employment, and you can prove to a court that your livelihood was interrupted because of such allegations, you could probably be awarded millions; the greater the damage, the greater the award.

    If you minimize the damage you suffered, you may not get anything, not even cost!

    Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque

      “the greater the damage the allegations caused it the monitory compensation one can demand”

      Let me see if I can correct the above.

      The greater the damage the allegations caused, it is the more you can demand in monitory compensation!

      As for the person who suggest he simply has to explain his in-discretion, there is not much to explain since everyone knows the meaning of the term in-discretion, which is something as simple as an act, or remark; marked of discretion marked by lack of discretion, it is simply an variance from the accepted norms of society, which however does not always constitute thievery, although money was involved.

      The discretion of individuals, are simply a matter of choice, or judgment; here the power of free decision, or latitude of choice within certain legal bounds. The question here is simply this: Was Fontaine placed in a position where he had the latitude to make the temporary decision he made. That question has already been answered, by Clayton Shillingford on more than one occasion.

      Hence the opposition has no argument, except to try and politically assassinate the man’s character.

Its online for everybody to see.

    Where are the records of the cash you said you spend for the patient?

    Why did you say you purchased the land from the DAAS 11,000 square feet of Land.

    Did you know that DAAS land was 14,490 square feet with the same boundaries on the Certificate of title in your name?

    Did DAAS refund you $3000.00 for your deposit to Rosalie Estate?

    Where is the documentary proof that you repaid DAAS the $27,000.00 US?

    Why did you change your story on from who you purchase the land.

    Why was all this happening around the time the process of debt recovery was proceeding against you according to public court records in the USA?

    Tony is one interesting character – This is the same man who told us that emails are unacceptable and that emails can be doctored. This is the same character who is fighting tooth and Nails to prevent the original Villa ownership Emails in the law suit of Bubbles Vs Lennox Linton.
    Was it the same Tony who said that the emails of the Weekly Blitz editor Choudri demanding hush hush money was unacceptable?
    Is it the same Tony who said that the emails sent between he and Alick Lawrence, Hartley Henry on their plans to prevent the cleansing of the voters list for a free a fair election were adulterated emails.
    Is it the same Tony who said that the Suprya Singh emails were doctored
    Is it the same Tony who said that the email with the pdf of Skerrit’s declaration to the IPO was not genuine.

    Now on the matter regarding Lennox Linton and Pinard Byrnes Tony thinks that the court over extended it authority on the issue of qualified Priviledges- I wonder what is his argument? Is he going to argue that his team on Kairi had qualified Priviledges?

    As I said earlier all these characters on Kairi have been accused of improprieties yet none of them has the guts to file a law suit. I wonder why. Now the fact that Thomson is filing a law suit tells me that he is interested in cleansing his name . So why is Tony not interested in clarifying the issue regarding his Commercial Bank matter. Why is Simeone not interested in clarifying thru the courts accusations of abuse and irregularities at the Urban Council? Why is Lennox Lawrence an officer of the courts uninterested in clarifying the matters regarding Washington Post accusations and many more that I cant mention.
    Skerrit in addition to you humongous closets with numerous skeletons Angelo Alleyne has been releasing information about your exploits why are you so unwilling to stop this hammering thru the courts
    Crazy T – Oh Boy. Crazy T say he is always packing soI guess there is no need to file law suits. DNO allow me to ask a question to Crazy. Crazy did you get $500 K from the government to boost your business? If so what did you do to deserve our tax dollars

    It is about time that purveyors of lies and willful defamation be held to account for misleading the public and sullying the image of a professional whose tenure at the International Monetary Fund has made him a credible candidate to lead this country’s economic revival.

    The matter of the defamation of Dr. Thomson is especially outrageous considering that we have a sitting prime minister who is seeking office with a cloud of credible allegations of corruption hanging over his head. Through his attorneys, the prime minister is seeking to silence the Integrity in Public Office Commission that is seeking answers to some very serious allegations concerning the Blair Court property believed to be owned by the prime minister, via the much abused “judicial review”.
    To the serious observer, the allegations against Dr. Thomson is a bogus attempt to deflect attention from the problems surrounding the prime minister in preparation for the next general elections.
    This is carrying politics to a dangerous new level.

    The reputation of a professional of Dr. Thomson’s caliber should not be a matter of political gamesmanship to pave the way for the re-election of a prime minister who has failed to answer questions put to him by his country’s IPO, questions which go to the core of his suitability to continue to lead a nation that is steeped in corruption since his elevation to office.
    The public needs answers to some troubling questions relating to the prime minister and we ought to reject the effort to pull the wool over the public’s eye by calling into question Dr. Fontaine’s impeccable reputation in order to give cover for the rather serious concerns we have with the prime minister’s ethical conduct, or lack of such.
    So I applaud the law suit. This nonsense must be brought to a halt.

This contributor more than like is the Great Corruptor, the Evil One who is the architect of all things evil and detrimental to the health and well being of the body politic.
        I cannot understand why the public will not treat the Great Corruptor as public enemy number one, the one most responsible for creating an enabling environment for the prime minister to believe that he is above the law.
        All things come to an end in the fullness of time but my fear is that the collateral damage to this country before the end comes will be so vast, that change may hardly matter.
        The time has come to isolate the Evil One before he unleashes more havoc and destruction.

      Flowery words that mean nothing, considering the fact that Dr. Fontaine did take money from DAAS and put it in his personal account an action which he discribed as an error in judgement.It took a while for the money to be returned to DAAS, he had to be threatened with legal action for the funds to be returned. So @rereree why do you defend this action, any damage done to Mr. Fontain’s reputation is because of his action.

      Very good point DCW. I would definitely expect the likes of Mr. Skerrit to resort to legal advise, or at least challenge the accusations of wrong-doings against him if there is no merit in them. Such action has been strangely lacking, except in the continuously prolonged case of the issuance of economic citizenships and one wonders why. After all, he has the same recourse to the law as has Dr. Fontaine, if not more so and has the ability to finance such. Are we perhaps to believe that the man, who calls another “thief” in public will not sue that same man out of magnanimity?
      It will be a very interesting case indeed and I hope that the accused will not seek refuge this time in that old standby of a judicial review in order to stretch a hearing ad infinitum, sine die.
