UPDATE: Dr. Thomson Fontaine released without charge; to review legal options

Fontaine (right) with attorney Gildon Richards after his release

The Police in Dominica, after almost five hours of questioning, have released opposition United Workers Party (UWP) senator Dr. Thomson Fontaine.

He was first taken into custody by the police on Sunday February 12, 2017, around 2:00 pm and brought to Police Headquarters for questioning. He was released around 6:00 pm on that day with instructions to return at 9:00 am on February 13, 2017 for further questioning.

Moments after his release on Monday, Fontaine told jubilant and cheering supporters who had gathered and camped outside Police Headquarters, that the police are alleging he incited people to overthrow the Skerrit administration and he has denied the accusations.

Those assembled under the burning sun erupted in chats of “Skerrit must go, Skerrit must go…Skerrit must go” as he was released.

Fontaine with supporters

As he walked through the police erected barricade with his lawyer Gildon Richards, Dr. Fontaine raised both hands in the air as a sign of victory and told the people that he was released with “no charge.”

“After some four to five hours of questioning, I was let go without any charge. There is nothing that this government has on me…these were all trumped up charges,” he said.

He explained what took place.

“They first accused me of attempting to overthrown Roosevelt Skerrit; they accused me of paying people to burn places during the protest on February 7, 2017, without a shred of evidence. All those accusations were made against me…all false and they’ve decided that they have nothing to go on and so they released me without any charge,” Dr. Fontaine stated.

He said that he adopted the same approach as he did the day before and answered no questions.

“They continued to ask me questions and I gave them no answers…I adopted the same stance of February 12, 2017 and refused to answer any of the questions posed to me…I told them I was not guilty of any charge and was not going to answer to any questions,” he remarked.

Fontaine also said he will be reviewing his legal options since the accusations are severe.

“It cannot be that the government can tarnish your good name in the international community. It cannot be the government can accuse me of something I know absolutely nothing about,” he remarked.

Police maintained a heavy presence in the area

    For a truth …Politics is worse than terrorism …Terrorism from the muslim extremist is more- or – less located in the middle east and part of Africa…however political terrorism is all over the globe and it’s a mess world over… It’s for that very reason that I do not understand when some folks called themselves christians, GOD’s followers,get themselves entangle in such mess…
    How sad men and women world over are still so dye hard putting their all into Presidents,Prime Ministers,Kings,Queens,Emperors etc expecting them too bring about the milk and honey lands…no people you all are just fools…You all will never find it in Caesar’s kingdom…( politics I call Caesar’s doctrine )…
    What you all are badly in search of can only be found in one Kingdom..The Kingdom of JEHOVAH..and those that truly found IT, this nonsense that’s going on in Dominica and the world over has no effect on their lives…May GOD help you all…

    Unfortunately Dominica got to the point where the Police service has become an enemy of state and behaves like a security firm that is hired to protect the interest of the individual or company that hired the. If they were interested in the state the first thing they would do is bring Skerrit in for questioning because they should know there are questions he and only he can answer. Then they would bring in Dr. Darroux to tell us about his recent trip. But again it\’s a security firm put in place to protect the labor party and their interest. Shame on all of them

    Said Dr Thompson the Grandfond man had a tough one yesterday but Jehvovah God put an angel over him. Be strong, keep a firm meditation Dr, one day things must get better. Don’t give up….
    God is always on the side of Truth. Dr Thompson is on the side of truth… Light overcoming Darkness. Speaking truth to power.
    Lennox, Angelo, Dr Christian, Danny Lugay and the rest of the crew with the host of Diaspora intellectuals are on the winning side.
    No matter what labour do, there days are numbered cause truth n justice will win..
    Right now, Dr Fontaine, the wise man from the east, must say like Jesus, Father forgive them police, critics n detractors for they know not wat they do…. All those labour cronies who were asking for the Grandfond man neck, talk now nah, talk now. No charge, no case.
    Team Dominica having the last laugh. One day a certain Dr might get his day with justice n Truth.
    God bless the Blue army n movement for change….

    Thompson, you have to take Skerrit and the police commissioner to court for damages that you suffered. Sue the pants off them, because you should not let this pass without sending a strong message to Skerritt.
    One more thing, we and our supporters should NOT wait until the next election to get Skerritt out of office. Lead the way , let us beat the iron in shape while it is hot.
    Skerritt must Go!

    We should not wait until elections to get Skerrit out of office , because by that time Dominicans will forget and forgive Skerrit for what he put us through . So I say let us keep holding rallies and demonstrations to keep the pressure on Tony and Skerritt.
    They have to leave office sooner better than later.
    Let us all chant ” Skerritt must Go!”

    He said he is not guilty and refused to answer questions. This is why he was released with no charges, “for now.”.
    Fontaine resided in the US and knows all about the Fifth Amendment. His attorney obviously told him to kept quiet. Reason for this is so that he does not incriminate himself. This does not mean he is not guilty of trying to overthrow the government. He and his gang have projected their disdain for the PM.
    They called that Tuesday “D-DAY.” Why?
    Fontaine, you cannot fool everyone. The intentions were evident. Why did they try to drive the truck toward the financial center? Were it not for the Police they would have driven there.
    He would not have been called to the Police Station if they were not aware that he played some part in it.
    His not replying to the questions does not exonerate him. Fontaine, it is not yet all over for you even though you are released. People have been charged for a crime even though they do not open their mouths.

    @gracefulandwiseliving forElohim…you see how bias you all red dragons are. During the dual passport case, you red twisters were saying how could the opposite take Skerrit to court and want him to reveal his passsport to incriminate himself; why the opposition wants Skerrit to prove their case for them. The same questions could be asked in this situation. Skerrit was so sure that an overthrown was planned, he made mentioned of it during his speech to the nation; Per Skerrit, his intelligence informed him…so why now the intellligence cannot present its evidence to the police; why is Dr. Thompson who has to present evidence on himself? The police arrested a man and want to the man to incriminate himself. In police work arrests are made on probable cause or based on evidence not based on suspicion, speculation,
    hearsay and inadequate data. Dr. Thompson was in his right to remain silent; it is the police that has to
    prove their allegstions, not him.

      Dr. Shillingford, surely you are not suggesting that the police do not have the legal authority to bring someone in for questioning if they have reason to believe that that individual may be able to assist them in their investigation of a crime? And what pray would be the purpose of Fontaine giving the name of his interrogator? For retribution?
      And BTW, Fontaine has stated that he refused to answer any of the questions posed to him by his interrogators. Can one assume that he was in fact “pleading the fifth” – which in the USA would mean that a “suspect” would not wish to have his words used against him in a court of law!
      And Dr. Shillingford may I remind you that Fontaine threatened to take legal action against Senior Counsel
      and several others including myself, several years ago in connection with words spoken and written about his and your involvement in the DAAS “Transfergate” and “Landgate” scandals. We are still waiting!

    “There is nothing that this government has on me…these were all trumped up charges,” he said” News Article

    Fontaine I believe that this statement is a bit over spoken, in that you claimed to have not answered any questions on both questioning period. No one will say yes “I did it”, and cause themselves to be found guilty.

    You seem to have said that you took the “5th Amendment” to avoid incriminating yourself, so then the police could not charge you, with anything. But does that mean that they have nothing on you? They just do not have witnesses. So then, be sure that the next time you will be charged for both this time and the next time you are caught. God is watching! .

What the union leaders back in 1979 shut down the country for back then is chicken feed to what is happening now , and you guys are like ostrich (head in sand). These Union Leaders -have been sold to the highest bidder and are not concern with the welfare and progress of their members. They have received – 0-0-0% increase in salary and they are ok with that. I am withdrawing my union membership – i don’t need any union to represent me. They are not able to represent and fight for me. HOUSE SLAVES they’ve become. You can keep your union i don’t need you

      Why the Government refusing to allow the case they have against Dr.Fontaine it’s around six years plus so what a you saying, you can blow hot air but just cannot stick they let him go and so he return to helping his people. We are waiting to see who will be the next individual to be picked
      There are some good policemen and they should not allow their leader to us them because he haven got the back bone to say NO to Skerrit., these policemen should ban together and walk off the job because they don’t have confident in the operation of the force.

It needs to stop, on both sides. I can tell you i am sat here in the UK ad Dominican man with family in Dominica and I am scared. Not so much for them as they are far removed from all tis. But I am scared for Dominica. The opposition needs to make it’s case on more issues than just one, it needs to demand an inquiry, it also needs to respect the outcome of it and respect who ever conducts it, so does the people as we are too cynical and distrusting. But most importantly it needs to fight with hearts and minds. Not blunt instruments.

    I’m I missing something here? First an article was published: “Breaking News: Police Released Dr. Thompson Fontaine”, now “Dr. Thomson Fontaine released without charge; to review legal options.” My question: Was Dr. Fontaine arrested or was he brought in for questioning? Fontaine is now alleging that he was accused of attempting to overthrow the Government of Dominica and that he is exploring his legal options. Does the police, in the execution of their law enforcement duties, have the right to question Fontaine, or anyone for that matter, to either obtain evidence or determine their involvement in the destruction of businesses in Roseau? When questioned by the police he decided to remain silent most likely on advise from his lawyer. Did he remain silent for fear of incriminating himself or others, or did he remain silent in a stance of defiance of the system? Just trying to get a clear picture of the events and circumstances before making any assumptions or jumping to…

    Accusing someone of attempting to overthrow the Government is a serious charge. So why didn’t they detain him if they had evidence? Obviously, these allegations are false and it is a continuing effort to tarnish the reputation of the UWP members. Thompson should examine his options and SUE the Government for libel.

I said in an earlier article that Dominica will soon be come a’ STATE OF BLOOD” The fact that opposition leaders are being harassed by the police, because they are shedding light on the corruptions that are taking place is a massive problem to Roosevelt Skerrit and his regime, There fore they have two options open to them which they used to silence the opposition LAW SUIT, AND POLICE HARRASEMENT. Don’t worry folks we must stand up for what we believe is right and we will do so until the final whistle is blown on Roosevelt Skerrit and his oppressive Regime. Hold on tight help is on its way deliverance is near. If the Commissioner of Police is stupid enough to be swayed by Skerrit, he too will have to go with Skerrit. That is so true it is a fact.

    It has begun.

I believe that thompson should sue the state for wrongful arrest without any charges as well as emotional damage and degredation of his character.

  39. Whereas there was no crime committed, there cannot be any charge! Carbon acted on Skerrit’s lie when he said members of the UWP, and DFP who love him so much went to the police, and reported some sort plot between the UWP, and the DFP to overthrow him.

    I suspect the insurgence who plotted to overthrow Skerrit are little green men: extraterrestrials from out of space, who planed to drive down from space, and stall their truck smack in front of Skerrit and capture him, and take him back to space with them!

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

    You see, what they did to Fontaine is called harassment, and false arrest. Unless Skerrit and Carbon can legally prove they suspected fountain involved into something illegal with evidence to prove that the arrest was justified, Fountain should file a law suit against the State, and police for false arrest!

    • Informed
      February 13, 2017

      In case you did not know….. breaches of the peace, vandalism, malicious damage and the list goes on are all criminal acts or putting it bluntly, crimes. When a crime is committed the police has the authority to take into custody anyone whom they suspect to be a party to the commission of the crime for questioning. If there is not enough evidence to formally charge that individual they would release and continue their investigations. A mere release does not mean there was no offence committed by the individual; not enough evidence to prefer charges thus far into the investigation.

      • This is not in communism or Nazi Germany where as soon as something happen the dictators would say round up the usual suspects you see!

        I understand what you are trying to say, but in Thomson, Lennox, and Luga situation that is political victimization, and false imprisonment!

        There are consequences for police doing false arrest, and false imprisonment, holding people against their will!

      • Responding to you is like dignifying a dog, squatting to the ground defecating, the same as when you are squatting over one of those deep pit hole Skerrit gave to fill with dirty water and feces.

        I do not dignify dogs, and other animals lower than I am!

      He would first have to be arrested to claim false arrest eh. I thought the brilliants Francisco would know that. Anybody can be taken for questioning. The people u call fools end up wiser than you cuz you head is too bloated.

      • Why do stupid people like you have to open your mouth proving to yourself how stupid you are! The article said Fountain was arrested, and release, and you that idiot who cannot read talking carp about he has to be arrested for there to be false arrest?

        What happen to your comprehension of the English Language?

        I know patios is a second language in Dominica, however, when I attended elementary in Welsey; the British curriculum did not contain patios, and since I am from Wesley, where we do not indulge in patios I am sorry, I cannot help you; now if wish that I teach you some broken English the Wesley kind, you could well understand, and experience my brilliancy.

        And make no mistake about it; I am brilliant!

    So far everyone has condemned the mini riot on Tuesday. Skeritt has received a certain amount of sympathy from his Laborites and community leaders. The arrest of Doctor Fontaine was to have done the same thing, a riot, as their were three tourist ships in port. What better way to curb the political pressure and at the same time look good in the eyes on the Americans. Later blame the disorder on his favorite partner , Lennox Linton. Unfortunately, it backfired, the supporters of the Doctor behaved magnificently. Skeritt can arrest as many members and supporters of the UWP as he wants ,this international problem facing Dominica will not go away, unless he resigns. What Skeritt does not understand, the riots of 1979 were of a local nature, but the problems now facing Dominica, involve America, China, Greece, Iran, crooks and vagabons. If Skeritt gets out of this one without serious repercussions, according to deceased Blople, the man is a magician.

    Even those who are entrusted with law and order in the country, they are now being affected with the bad politics on both sides of our politics

    Too much politics, bitterness, hatred and power on both sides are destroying the people and country. How long will this continue? If all concerned, do not stop for a few minutes, think of the good of the country, this land will be consumed by hatred. Think Dominicans, think before we talk and act! Our words and actions have consequences that might outlive us.

    What a pitiful situation! All is generally well that ends well and I note Dr Skeritt took my advice from last evening. Well done sir but this unfortunate incident has the world watching. It would seem that you need to get to Mr Blackmore ears and invite restraint. Firstly there was Dr Christian, then Dr Fontaine, who is next Dr Skerritt? or do you only deal with the Doctors, trying to show who is boss!! Mr Edward Seagar of recent Jamaica’s (Prime Minister) fame use to claim that there is only one ‘Dan’ (Don that is Jamaican expression for bad boy who demands respect through what ever means necessary). Are you Dr Skerrit saying the same thing that there is only one Don in Dominica and no one should test you or else you will call out the police force on them!! In 1979 Patrick John tried the same thing and we all know what happened, are we therefore hearing the death knells of your administration?

    Sir any legal battle that is initiated now is only going to hurt the State that is already hurt. Do the honorable thing and rise above that. You know this is a direct attack on the opposition who is fighting for transparency. However, if you can prove that a single individual or groups of individuals have caused you to be publicly humiliated, then of course, institute legal actions against them for defamation of character.

  48. Esau & Jacob-Gen. 25-28
    February 13, 2017

    The story of Jacob and Esau is very applicable to us in Dominica. As you know, the blessing was Esau’ but because of greed, selfishness, and shortsightedness, he sold it to Jacob. Because of that Esau lived a very bitter life

    Come Tomorrow Tuesday JACOB will be opening his BRAND NEW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT in St. Vincent. Since Jacob tricked ESAU again with the airport, I bet my life that ESAU will no where close to be seen.

    Jacob is now celebrating while Esau continues to pass his rage , anger, and bitterness on us and arresting all good men as if is they that told him to sell passport.

  55. The Writing on the Wall

    “And this is the writing that was inscribed: Mene, Mene, Tekel, and Parsin. 26 This is the interpretation of the matter: Mene, God has numbered[g] the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end”
    ; Daniel :5:26

    This episode reminds me of what I read in the book of Daniel 5. Pastor Griffin Daniel, Wilson, and the Evangelical Church should keep an immediate prayer meeting for Skerrit and see if they can interpret this inscription for him, and caution him of things to come because I know the FBI taking note of this writing on the wall

Do not give up the fight for a good cause, we need our country back so it will not be further ruined by the DLP and other criminal around the World. DLP’s leaders objective is to get rich and maintain their luxurious lifestyle while poor people become dependent on the government. Its time to end the poverty, dependency In the country. An end to Criminal activities in government. We need more transparency and accountability. The time is now. Time for a change.
