UPDATE: Checko in hot water, again

Checko is facing another lawsuit
Checko is facing another lawsuit

They say ‘when it rains, it pours.’

That saying seems to ring true for police officer and calypsonian, Abel “Checko” Jno Baptiste.

Fresh from being ordered to pay $130,000 to Dr. Philbert Aaron for libel, Checko is facing another lawsuit.

Female police officer, Nadine Henry, has filed a suit against Checko for a song he performed at the police calypso show, which was held during the carnival season.

The song ‘Oh Henry’ paved the way for Checko to win the crown in the competition but it appears that Henry is taking him to task for it.

A letter, dated April 2, 2014, from Noelize N. Knight Didier, of the law firm of Harris & Harris, to Checko and copied to the Commissioner of Police, reads “Our further instructions are that (i) our client is the only member of the Dominica Police Force with the surname “Henry” and (ii) she was sometimes called “O Henry” by friends within the force.”

The letter, headlined ‘Re: Nady Henry and your calypso “Oh Henry,'” went on to say, “We are instructed as well that your song was understood by members of the force and others to be referring to our client, by your use of the phrase ‘Oh Henry.'”

It stated that the words used “in reference to our client are clearly defamatory in nature.”

“They, by innuendo, are an imputation that our client is unchaste, that she has been intimate with several, if not all, members of the Dominica Police Force. We are informed that they were indeed understood in this way by your audience,” the letter said.

It also noted that since it publication, “our client has had to endure confrontation from several persons within and outside of the force in relation to the song.”

The letter made several demands including, a retraction of “the song in its entirety, by instructing all radio stations to cease the broadcast of the said song.”

Furthermore Checko should offer “in writing a suitable apology to our client in terms reasonably acceptable to her.”

The apology, according to the letter, “must of course be copied to the Chief of Police and to whomever our client wishes you to publish it.”

Lastly the letter demands that Checko offers “a suitable amount of compensation to her for the damage that she has already suffered.”

The letter stated that the matter will be taken before the courts if a positive response is not received from Checko within two weeks of the its receipt.

Checko was ordered to pay damages after he failed to file a defense in a suit brought by Aaron based on the song ‘Bug her.’

    so is Checko gate that low eh. Asabantan siging he know people that know people and all who getting things for free he call primeminster name in his song and all and no body suing him. Karessa sang on the attorney general and he was on stage with his dog suit so what message are we really sending for calypso. we need to hear from persons like Hunter who is a police officer and a member of the calypso association and all other police officers singing calypso

    Well maybe I should sue WCK eh because Balance Batty was my anthem, people would sing that to this day when I step out! :-P

    What is that at all for me with this little woman seeking attention. Woman you just exposed yourself. NOBODY calls you OH HENRY in the force, maybe privately somebody call you that under a session and you think they tell Checko. Not one police officer has any recollection of you being referred to by that moniker. Furthermore, OH HENRY is a chocolate bar, no different than when WCK popularized OREO… Checko better file a response, and sue the panties off your arse for piggybacking on situation and wanting to drag him. Lawyers also need to tell people when they making a mockery of themselves and not just eat their money. Even more to this you claim to be the ONLY HENRY in the entire Dominica Police Force, you have a lot of nerve and that in itself is a blatant, abhorrent lie, be gone.

    “Oh Henry”, however great the temptation there are other chocolate bar delights that may evoke the cravings more. Imagine prickling your taste buds with a “White Knight” (Australia), nibbling on “Lulu’s Bar” (U.S.A) or gobble a “Big Turk” (Canada) – the Turkish expatriate community in Toronto might consider bringing a class action for compensation for disrespecting their members in this way. Far safer for Checko and the like to stick with an insipid “Whatchamacallit” from the same bland stable as the “Oh Henry”.
    And I have not even mentioned the subtle flavours of the “Carlos V” when in latin America but you may wish to avoid the “Drifter” , which may not satisfy.
    Dear legal fraternity, just in case…, these are all registered brand names of chocolate bars, produced by major corporations that seek their profit out of stroking our taste buds with their merchandise. But…whomsoever fits the cap….put it on, if you are so inclined. The least it will do is draw attention.

    Well Checko you are indeed in more hot water. This should erase the smile on your face. Let us see what defense your lawyer and yourself will put up this time.
    These cases are costing you a mint. From now on be careful of what you sing. Consider your position as a policeman and refrain from debasing people in your songs. Policemen serve the public and they should rise above that.
    On compassionate grounds, I feel sorry for you that you are being sued once again. You are a young person. Your income cannot accommodate the overall cost. This may include your assets. You may become a pauper for the rest of your life.
    The world has changed and no exception Dominica. Therefore, cease those libelous songs. I do think after these two cases you will have learned a good lesson. Find another part-time hobby or stick to decent songs of love and peace. This will please the Lord and keep you out of this type of expensive trouble.

        Once he is earning a salary, he will have to pay some money be it a little at a time. If his salary increases, so will the amount. I do not think he will free of this for the rest of his life. Of course, he will not be able to have or accumulate assets other than his accommodation.

    To those of you saying this only happens in Dominica please do your research. The laws against libel and slander are pretty much universal. If someone can prove that a phrase can directly be associated with them, the law provides for Action to be taken in the event that statements are found to be defamatory. Sparrow used generic names and did not make reference to where specific people worked and what their positions were etc… when you use such identifiers, you open yourself up to litigation. Further more, if the parties are known to each other, and in this case they work together, the case can be strengthened by that fact.

    • Mojo1
      April 19, 2014

      @ CD
      You are totally out of you league here. Sparrow did indeed make very direct reference to individuals. Take the classic “Phillip my Dear” for instance. Further more sparrow is old school, the present crop of trini calypsonians are very rough on government politicians calling them thieves and drunks, without using any masking. So please do your research before coming here to profess your ignorance.

Dominicans are tops when it comes to idiot-acy in the whole world; People of varied occupations/professions have sang and continue to sing calypsos and continue to have side jobs in the entertainment world either as singers, musicians; comedians etc; Example in Trinidad you have police officers such as – Johnny King; Watchman and Penguin whose calypsos are sang all over the world; you have teachers such as Chaldust;; CroCro etc in St Lucia and Barbados you also have a number of public officers singing calypsos – Mighty Pep in St Lucia for example – so that BS you talking is very stenchy!

      You feel that way in Dominica. It is not so all over the world. He has a private life as long as it does not interfere with his position. The Police authorities cannot prevent him from composing, singing calypsos and performing.
      I noted that a student at the Convent High School performed and sang a calypso. I also noted the manner in which she was attired. This is someone, for her age and being a CHS student who should not have been allowed to do so.
      In my student days at CHS we were properly disciplined and would never dare considering singing calypsos at a carnival tent. Times have indeed changed in Dominica, some of it, not for the best. Those school authorities should discipline their students better than they are doing. This includes her parents.
      Nevertheless, Checko should have been careful about singing songs about people and mentioning their names. Hope he learned a lesson and so do other calypsonians.
      You must not defame the good character of people. It is not Christian-like. It is inhumane. There are too many people doing that, be it in other respects and they rank among practicing religious people. They also say things behind the backs of others, spreading rumours and innuendos, calling them names and for what and when others have been kind to them. The tongue is dangerous.
      As it is stated in Holy Scripture,, also “Dangers of the Last Days” and in another chapter, an animal, a reptile can be tamed but the human tongue cannot be tamed. What a shame. God will take care of such people.

      Hello and good morning my people. Hi Anonymous you are smarter than that. Have you heard about Freedom of Speech in a Democratic Country. Anyway this is an art form and maybe Checko should leave Dominica and move somewhere else where he can write his song and don’t have to keep worrying about this kind of Court issues. To many of our people are simple minded and it’s this type of mind set that’s preventing our Country from advancing.

    Somebody really tell me Checko was going to get sued again eh…. Well, what can I say. As soon as the song come out…I hear is about a Policewoman he was singing about so I guess the lady hear it too and I can’t blame her. So if she asking for her apology…it is her right. Put yourself in her shoe.
    Secondly, I knew Checko as a Christian artist before. I had liked his songs…but I mean. calypso show is not something that the ‘usual’ evangelical Christians take part it…but he decided to do it. I am an evangelical and I know that my Pastor would never encourage me to take part in it….then not only that…..for a Christian, his songs are very debasing and ‘worldly’. His songs are more lyrically impure than other calypsonians…so i was never impressed. If he had sang something uplifting or give a message to the Nation…maybe…..but his songs are mostly ;nonsense’.
    So Checko…you better check yourself before you wreck yourself…go back to God…and have a conversation with him..and drown out the noise……and know who to listen to.
    I am disappointed in what you had to offer ……I was like….”these are the best type of songs that a Christian wants to be singing”.
    But I still wish you the best.

I will be mobilizing all the residents of Virgin lane to effect a joint law suit 1 i hope there is no statute of limitation on this Horrendous statement which changed the lives of the residents of Virgin Lane.Imagine Common People were saying that there are no more Virgins on our lane!

      Let that be a lesson to them. Surely they could compose better and decent songs with likewise lyrics and make them enjoyable to listen to.
      Those calypsonians characters are not better and exemplary. They also have no respect for women. It is like the pot calling the kettle black which is why they should cease composing and singing such songs. If only they were perfect, it could be a different matter.
      If they make such songs on others, they deserve to be imprisoned also for their lifestyle which leaves much to be desired. Furthermore, if those guys are godly, they would not compose such songs. One day they will be answerable to God for this and the type of life that they live.

    The Bible say. Take note and know that in the latter days perilous times shall come for men/women shall be lovers of their own selves PROUD, BLASFEMERS, BOASTERS GREEDY,ETC. Cheko is young and the reason why he is being sued left right and center is because he lost his protection from the Holy Spirit because he went out of the will of God. The devil is the one pushing his servants to sue you my cousin, to destreoy a true child of God, you need to return like the prodigal son and let us join together and sing to honor God instead of you following SATAN children in their carnival and their bacchanal to be sued by his children. Remember the Devil has no friends he is the enemy who came to kill, Steal and destroy, and he will go all out to destroy you through his servants, and then those people who wants to blame Labour party or Government we have nothing to do with that. That is between two cousins, and close enough. Aaron’s mother is from Vieille Case Checko;s mother is from Vieille Case Renoldson Joseph is Aaron’s uncle and also Checko’s mother uncle so the family will get together to settle our problem Uncle Paul, Vernillia Addie my self and the rest will look into that, strangers should keep all you mouth shut especially the opposition don’t use our issue to make political mileage. Checko come back in the faith please, for your own sake because SATAN HAS DESIRED TO HAVE YOU SO HE CAN SIFT YOU LIKE wheat But I am praying for you and when you are converted strengthen the brethren. That’s why I left Calypso long time
    to sing for the Lord you left the Lord’s stage and went back on the world stage RETURN OH BACKSLIDING CHILDREN

      So many other useful and Christian like affairs to talk about is Cheko you trying to give pressure? If this is a family thing do not bring it in a public domain, deal with at the family kitchen table. If Checko cannot sing of the ill in this so called Christian society and the bribery, stealing and false prophets in this society then all those so called Christians can keep covering their eyes with the cloak of unjust and evil.
      This is the man culture, this is how we expose the ills in society and God don’t see anything wrong with that. If you choose to pretend all is well in this evil society then so be it. Checko will overcome because justice is on his side and the God is on his side. I wish there we more checkos to expose the un -Godliness in our society. Greed is what killing our society to give checko a break….he will overcome.

      It is the same Satan which caused people, some of them who travelled to Dominica, to build their church and influence Catholics to renounce their faith and join other churches. Satan has been very much involved in this. The devil is rampant, even among those who say they are preaching the Word of God.
      As it is said, “Evangelists are not like Jesus”. He did not go where His Name was already proclaimed.
      St. Paul said this as well: “We do not go where Jesus is already proclaimed.” He was well-proclaimed in Dominica dating back to hundreds of years.
      Their evangelization has not made Dominica better, more loving, happier and peaceful to live in. On the contrary, sadly so, note the situation in Dominica as more crimes in the past years and increasing ones.

    We too would like to condemn this latest as grotesque. But we can’t. Seems to be the signs of the times. Zero tolerance for levity and a good laugh in Dominica, these days, is leading to an increasingly fractious country.

    We advance the argument that these lawsuits, and the premise on which they are based, are frivolous. That notwithstanding, the respondent has a responsibility to seek to mount vigorous and credible defense in his bid for redress when taken before the courts. Absent which, the court has no choice but to rule favorably for the plaintiff. It is an affront to the court for a respondent to signal their disrespect with their nonappearance and refusal to offer a defense at this most important tribunal.

    As for this latest pursuit, we believe that this is a case of bandwagoning. You know what the older folks used to say about where the barrier is lower, that’s where the hooved animals seek to jump over? It is the sought of behavior that we strive mightily as we endeavour to emulate our giant of a neighbor up north.

    Ladies and gentlemen, we are fast becoming an incredible litiguous society, not unlike our model, Uncle Sam.

Checko is the scapegoat, but the message there is that WE ARE LIVING IN A BROKEN COUNTRY, A MISMANAGED COUNTRY, and we better take note and effect change. According to ‘Blessings’, the signs are already there.
    Apparantly many people are believing that Checko is DOMINICA OR THE CARIBBEAN’S RICHEST MAN, SO EVERYBODY WANTS TO SUE CHECKO TO SURVIVE? CHECKO ISN’T. All you are afraid of and are adoring the Caribbean’s richest man and is poor Checko all you after for money.

    The court needs to be able to differentiate between an office and a person. Governor is not a person’ it is an office occupied by a person. Prime Minister is not a person; it is an office occupied by a person. Police commissioner is not a person; it is an office occupied by a person. Ambassador IS NOT a person; it is an office occupied by a person. How could the court sue a person for singing about an office unless the persons correct name was mentioned? Can you not see we have allowed too much? The person that occupies such offices pledged to honor and hold the office they hold in high repute. So if they failed to do that, why should calypsonians not chastise the office in question? As a bible believing nation, as claimed, we need to understand that the bible did not just advise us to avoid evil but the very appearance (Questionable behaviors) of evil. But I like that you know because it tells me that change is a MUST.

      To the Fallen Nation —- Ambassador is a position occupied by a person so just saying the Ambassador could refer to any Ambassador right, but when you specify the first initial of that Ambassador you then narrow the search right?? Now be honest and not bias… if your name is John Doe and you are a well known Ambassador and i make a damaging statement about an Ambassador J, and go further referring to your wife then tell me who am i talking about?? is it about all Ambassadors or specifically Ambassador J???

      This is NOT POLITICS we must practice EMPATHY!!!!

        April 17, 2014

        @Joe, I don’t agree with you. The whole thing is just pure nonsense. Going back to your example of John Doe, if the song was about Ambassador John or Ambassador Doe I would understand because a name was mentioned. But “A” is not the name of a person even if someone who occupies that office has a first initial A. Only Dominica this rubbish happens because Skerrit team MUST be protected at all cost.

      Leave the man alone? He should leave the people alone. They are his victims, singing about them and what they supposedly did, if that is correct. He has a lifestye and they have theirs. What they do is none of his business. It is not acceptable in this day and age that people sing about others and their supposedly lifestyle.
      Tell Checko about what you do in private and let him sing a calypso about you and expose you.

    • April 17, 2014

      I totally agree with you and since we on respect the entire public should file a lawsuit against PM Skerrit for defamatory statements like tellings us ” go to Hell: ” in other words he was referring to all of us as being unworthy and condeming us to hell . He in fact is saying that we are HELL material and that I found very defamatory to me and has affected many pyschologically.

    These things are happening because our nation has fallen apart. We thought we were just keeping workers out but did not realize that we were destroying the foundation of our country. My name is Henry, and I am going to sue as well. Justice is gone so the calypso show should be gone as well because I cannot understand how tax payers that are public servants can set bad examples to our young people and when calypsonians sing about their nasty ways, without calling their names, the court charges them. What a shame Dominica! But you know what, I really like that.

    • Emile Zapatos
      April 17, 2014

      @a fallen nation,…….The DNO report says that he did not file a defence. A POLICE OFFICER did NOT file a defense. So how is this a miscarriage of justice? A police officer should know what misconduct is.
      Having said this, I do not think people should take offence because a calypso refer to them, to the extent of court action. Making calypso about people is just fun and entertainment and should never result in law suits. This is part of our culture that goes way back to carnival patois songs

        An EXCELLENT ATTORNEY would file a COUNTER LAWSUIT in ANY matter. This is called REPRESENTATION. Personally, I will NEVER PAY AN ATTORNEY TO LOSE MY CASE. If I should lose my case, that attorney would have to file his own lawsuit for his NON-DESERVING PAYMENT.

      “These things are happening because our nation has fallen apart.”

      One word: “utter rubish!”

      If our nation has fallen apart it is because some wicked person has taught his followers to speak with unbridled fervor and the followers, more idiot than the leader himself, let their tongue loose. Well, with the right to speak freely comes the responsibility to exert an equal dose of responsibility in one’s actions. Unfortunately, that great leader does not preach responsibility and restraint. Hence, the followers are left to hang in the wind as they face the consequences of their loose tongue.

      You stop your crap about the PM. If you do not cease defaming his character, you, too will end up in Hell. Our Lord said, “Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter His Kingdom.” He also said, “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.”
      When you quote about the Holy Bible and from it, ensure that you remember every word that is stated in those chapters and practice them. It is a mistake that some of you make as you profess to know about all what is contained in Holy Scripture.

      I gave this a good thought. You are correct. Excellent and best points made. Ignore the senseless people who gave you thumbs down. They, as Checko know no better.
      He is serving the public. As a policeman he should live an exemplary life. Who can respect a policeman who sings songs against people and their lifestyle?
      While he is free to sing he should be careful what he sings about. Really, those calypsos he sang should be a NO, NO and for one who is a policeman.
      Inspector Carbon should address this issue to his Police Force. I hope he does.

      Anyways on a very serious note, I call on the DCA, the lawyers of the DCA and Mr Marie to hold a proper training seminar and include the writers station program Directors and the DJs and announcers to be part of that training so that media houses can be aware of the implications that it could have on even them too. People must be held accountable for their words and their tongues especially when certain songs and other bits of information are heard world-wide. The same applies to talk-show hosts and people who produce or conduct programs that go public.

      I am speaking of all the secular radio stations in this sense. How ever the training should be opened to all
