Woman in alleged theft of money granted bail

A woman who is allegedly associated with $11,218 missing from Hummingbird Inn guesthouse was granted bail Friday in the sum of $1,500.

Ishanet Joseph appeared before Magistrate Ozzie Lewis at the Roseau Magistrate court Friday afternoon where lawyer Gealdon Richard made an application for bail on her behalf.

The Goodwill resident, who is pregnant and expects to give birth in October, spent two weeks before Friday in incarceration at the Stock Farm Prison.

The defendant’s uncle and mother, Dinette Pierre and Paula Pierre of Wesley, stood as surety in the bail of the accused.

She will appear in court again November 7 when the trial in the matter begins.

    This is not a true story about The Hummingbird Inn

    If the employee and/or parents are well-known in Dominica, Roseau for that matter, the Bank may not disclose the name or have them arrested. They cover it up and make the employee repay the money. I have heard that this occurred a few years ago. This is a two-tier, unfair system.

    No fraud took place at SCotiabank. You will hear a press release soon from the bank. The staff were fed up and they left period.

      People are providing their comments. There is no need to use unbecoming language on this Website.
      Do you not have respect for others? Please comment respectfully. What type of person are you to make derogatory comment towards your fellow people? Do you possess class and dignity? It appears not. :twisted: :twisted:

    Its so unfortunate when people try to give ambitious people bad name. There has been absolutely no bobol at Scotia Bank recently!! People decide to move on with their lives for their own personal reasons! Why should that be a problem with you people!! Examine your hearts when you make those types of statements. Remember too that there is a God above.

    Dear MS.D/A,

    Sorry to say but that’s what most men in Dominica are SPERM DONORS. When they meet you everything is going sweet until you get pregnant. When that happens they don’t want to see you. Some would pay for you to have an abortion.
    On the other hand, it’s about time that Dominican young loadies walk with their heads high. Educate themselves and be independent. Some men hate an independant woman but that’s their problem.
    Ladies let your no be no and your yes be yes. I learned the hard way.

    The article states that the woman was allegedly associated with the theft of money and so she spent two weeks in jail.

    But the lawyer Isidore,who is allegedly associated with the theft, embezzlement or fraud involving about $8,000,000.00 from Emanuel’s Office, was never arrested. The Chief Magistrate’s warrant sent to the police for his arrest was disobeyed. The Chief of police refused to carry out the arrest. Dominicans are wondering if it is because he worked for and is a close associate of the leader and also colleague of those in POWER. Up to now not one of the 42 charges filed by Emanuel could be read to Isidore.

    We hear of firebombing of Emanuel’s home, imagine on CHRISTMAS DAY. We hear of confessions given to police. We hear of names mentioned first by no other person but the Lawyer representing Isidore. Where did that Lawyer get that info. from? Who told him? Was it due to the confession given to police? The names of persons branded about allegedly could be involved in that heinous criminal act.

    The police Chief said Emanuel, the victim of the attempted assassination, is not cooperating with them and so he is impeding investigations into that crime. LAUGHABLE. Dominicans are not fools and are very suspicious of certain comments being made. Some in authority seem to have a deep interest in that case. Always on radio defending, defending, defending. Defending What or whom? Your guess is as good as mine.

    What injustice in my land. WRONG is WRONG is WRONG. The poor woman as alleged may have done wrong. She would have to face the consequences. Likewise if ‘BIG BOYS’ in the CABAL also do wrong, CRIMINAL acts, shouldn’t the person or persons be arrested, brought before the court and be punished? No EQUALITY before the LAW. The ordinary, voiceless, poor men and women are those who will face the wrath of the Law, not those WITH POWER, IN POWER. SHAME,SHAME, SHAME. INJUSTICE is CRIPPLING this nation. It is WRONG to condone CRIMINALITY and/or to protect those in ‘HIGH PLACES’ who commit crimes. Those things will come back to HUNT DOMINICA.

    Its very funny. DNO can find the name and address of this woman but cant seem to find any information on all the other thefts that were caught that have big name.

    Guest we see what fear and balance news mean to some.

        @ Way Papa. Sounds like a gossiper.

        You are fortunate that DNO allows your comment to be posted. Some of you are extremely bold. By your words, you act as if you own DNO. Be discreet when commenting. Ask questions and cease making rash judgments which may be unfounded. This is the method of matured, intelligent adults.

      When the alledged Scotia Bank and LIAT case make it to court, then it will be published – just like this one was! You honestly expect DNO to come here and publish he said, she said someone make bobol over there? If you have such credible evidence, give it to the police! When they make the arrest and bring charges, then I will fault DNO for being selective in its news items. Until then, stop braying you Jack/Jenny Ass!!

    I guess its ok to publish her name on the first go because she is a no-name person. How hypocritical we can be in this country.

      Commenting from afar, to my knowledge it may be prior to Rockaway, or after passing the cliffs or near Canefield; somewhere around there. At least you have an idea.
      Some years ago I went there. I knew the owner then. Do not know if it is the same owner. Have not been in touch for a while.
      It is sad that she found herself in this situation and she is pregnant at that.
      This is a lot of money. Some people allow money to tempt them. They must realize that sooner or later they will be caught.

        What I recall, Hummingbird Hotel cannot be seen from the road. Driving from say Pottersville, after the cliff, when you arrive near the location, a right turn must be made to drive up to the hotel.
        This hotel has been there for approximately over 15 years. I love the area where it is located, in a secluded area but a nice and quiet one, among trees.

      For your information most women in Dominica dont have baby daddy. They have sperm donors.
