Defense of Dominica’s CBI goes into high gear following report by investigative group

Dominican ePassports

Following a damning report on Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program, paid articles have started appearing in international publications defending the program and its positive impact on the island. An article on Dominica’s CBI has appeared in Mint, which described itself as an “award-winning business publication from India,” as well as Hindustan Times, a daily English newspaper based in Delhi, also in India.

Under the articles in both publications, there is a disclaimer that reads, “This article is a paid publication and does not have journalistic/editorial involvement of Hindustan Times. Hindustan Times does not endorse/subscribe to the content(s) of the article/advertisement and/or view(s) expressed herein. Hindustan Times shall not in any manner, be responsible and/or liable in any manner whatsoever for all that is stated in the article and/or also with regard to the view(s), opinion(s), announcement(s), declaration(s), affirmation(s), etc., stated/featured in the same.”

It is unknown who paid for the articles in both publications and the government of Dominica has remained silent on the matter.

The Hindustan Times focused on the international airport which is now under construction here on the island, saying that it is funded primarily by the island’s CBI program.

“The international airport is poised to be Dominica’s primary global gateway, with funding primarily sourced from the Dominica Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program,” the article reads. “This transformative airport project presents investors with a unique opportunity to play a pivotal role in its construction.”

The articles noted that the $1-billion airport is slated for completion by 2025 and “stands as a beacon of progress for the island nation.”

“It will also have the capacity to welcome long-haul flights and will play a pivotal role in making Dominica more accessible to the world,” the article said. “The international airport project signifies the country’s dedication to progress and prosperity. As construction kicks off, Dominica eagerly anticipates the positive transformations that will follow, solidifying its reputation as a top-notch tourism destination in the Caribbean.”

The article praised Dominica’s CBI program saying Dominica owes much of its success to the program.

“Dominica’s CBI Program plays a pivotal role in funding diverse development initiatives on the island, spanning sectors from housing to education,” the article stated. “With one of the Caribbean region’s fastest-growing economies, Dominica owes much of its success to the highly regarded CBI Program. This program enables carefully vetted investors and their families to participate by contributing to a government fund or investing in pre-approved real estate on the island in exchange for citizenship.”

It described the island’s program as having a “stellar reputation” which it said “is largely due to its rigorous due diligence process and thorough evaluation of potential investors, ensuring that only trustworthy and credible applicants are accepted.”

The article in Mint is entitled, “Dominica’s Women: Breaking Barriers and Achieving Greatness” and focused first on the newly elected president of Dominica, Sylvanie Burton and later on Marie Therese Johnson, which it said is “the newly appointed head of Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit.”

“The Citizenship by Investment program of Dominica is one of the most respected and coveted programs in the world,” the article reads. “That is probably why Marie Therese Johnson has been chosen to lead it, following a very successful stint as the General Manager of the AID Bank. As the General Manager of a large financial institution, her responsibilities included strategically guiding the Board of Directors, establishing a robust risk-compliance system, governance framework management, and heading daily

According to the article by Burton and Johnson, “Dominica has now set an example for the world to follow.”

“That is an example of an egalitarian state where men and women have the right to opportunity, and women can shine in their preferred fields,” it said.

Despite the glowing reviews given by both articles on Dominica’s CBI program, the investigation by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) in conjunction with 15 international media entities, paints a different picture. Investigators were able to obtain the names of roughly 7,700 people who have purchased Dominica passports in recent years. Many of these people reportedly had “dark pasts” and included a former spymaster in Afghanistan who was accused of human rights violations, a convicted millionaire and former Libyan colonel, and a former nuclear scientist for Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein.

The investigation also revealed that nearly a dozen people fled their countries over criminal charges and convictions after buying Dominican citizenship. This is despite the fact that the government in Dominica has been constantly saying that the island’s CBI program has a vetting system that “is multi-layered and handled by top-rated due diligence agencies based in the U.K. and the USA.”

“Dominica has taken the lead in this region in seeking regional coordination on the various [citizenship-by-investment] programs and in discussing ways to safeguard all of these programs,” Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit once said.

But a report from the investigation pointed out that experts say, “passports such as those sold by Dominica can be an attractive prospect for fugitives looking to set themselves up in jurisdictions beyond the reach of authorities back home.”

“If you’re a government official embezzling public funds or a businessperson making dodgy deals, chances are you’re worried about future prosecution,” Eka Rostomashvili of Transparency International was quoted as saying.

“When the going gets tough, a golden passport in your back pocket allows you to skip town. New citizenship — and potentially a new identity — comes in handy if you want to evade law enforcement and prosecution efforts.”

    The government of Dominica and more to the point the chief passport seller have nothing to say in their defence. What could they possibly say? I mean apart from their usual line of defence which is rhetoric, lies and cheap propaganda. This tactic might work sometimes in DA but it most certainly won’t work with accusers that know what they are talking about and have evidence as backup. Skerrit will never willingly attend a press conference that hasn’t previously been briefed in detail by his GIS. How many times did Lennox challenge him for an open debate? He ran away every single time. Why? Because he knows he is guilty as charged. All we would get is umh and aah and amh and a bit of smirking thrown in for good measure. This man has been fooling and betraying the people of DA for over 20 years. Some still haven’t noticed!

    The cabal is really worried about the prying eyes of international media taking a close look at the CBI or golden passports from Caribbean countries. As a result the EU is going to clamp down on the misuse of the visa free privilege which affects the security apparatus of EU members. The Skerritt administration has been hiding the public data from Dominicans and has reported only 7700 people who received citizenship by investing and the media investigation estimates that number at 19,000. The EU data suggests that the 19,000 is 80% below the true figure. Visa-free access to the EU should not be used as a commercial commodity to be sold and bought the report said. Selling passports to countries with a high level of perceived corruption will not be tolerated by the EU and the US. These corrupt buyers claim asylum when they get into the EU. Holding press conferences and vilifying the opposition will not cut it with the EU. Skerritt you killing the goose.

      This is just an extract from Skerrits propaganda bible. It’s just a barrage of words without a shred of evidence or facts. All of us were told initially that the ‘airport’ would be financed by CBI money, as a response to persistent questions about the proceeds of the CBI program. When it became clear to most of us that a billion EC$ wouldn’t build an international airport, he paddled back to his very first statement that China would initially pay for the airport. You see he makes it up as he goes along, worse even, his notorious mouthpieces regurgitate his nonsense on each occasion. This people have no shame or character. Hands up, who still believes them.

      @Lin clown, everything that Skerritt tells you, you believe so you want to force other intelligent people into believing the numerous lies he’s been telling. Skerritt told us that a percentage of money from passport sales was being put into an account at NBD towards building the airport, but when he was asked how much was there instead of thousands he said less than $100.00. Numerous times he said that the Chinese would be paying for building the airport but in the end it’s sale of passport money. Where is the loan he took to build the airport? He told of a bypass road to Canefield, where is it? what about the cruise terminal? what about the rebuilding of Roseau? how is that going? Clowns are easily fooled but not intelligent people. The EU and Britain don’t care what he does with the money from passport sales, they care about their security apparatus when potential criminals come easily into their countries. Skerritt didn’t start the CBI program but he made it corrupt.

      @Lin clown, you say that houses are given to Dominicans free. You can’t back that up, fella. Just go to anyone living in these apartments and ask to see the certificate of title which is the only legal document which conveys ownership. Go ahead, clown, and then tell the reading public how many people have certificate of title for these apartments they live in?. You brag that you have a home in Dominica. Do you have a certificate of title for yours? If you don’t then explain how you obtained it and what proves it’s yours. Clown!!.

      The report by the EU states that Skerrit has sold as many as 34,500 passports since 2015. Assuming that the average cost would be in the region of US$150,000 per passport and considerably more for a diplomatic passport, that would have yielded a gross income of just over 5.2 billion US$. Bearing in mind that fees have to be paid to all those greedy agents, it can be safely assumed that the treasury of Dominica should be swimming in approx. 3-4 billion US$. By my calculation that would mean roughly a net yield of 50million US$ for each citizen of Dominica which means each of you should be multi millionaires. The nacked truth, however, is a different one, some of you still live under tarpaulin, others are living from one day to another, while Skerrit lives the live of a king.

        “By my calculation that would mean roughly a net yield of 50million US$ for each citizen of Dominica which means each of you should be multi millionaires.” So, the proceeds from the CBI should be channeled to the individual bank accounts of each citizen? Why don’t we do the same for the taxes that we collect then? You do realize of dumb this sounds, right?

        “Why hasn’t your PM presented independently audited accounts to all you?” This is a red herring. If however, it matters so much to you, why not have the Opposition (in Parliament) table the relevant questions and requests? Doing so would surely force the Executive to commission the audit and the near defunct Public Accounts Committee (Linton placed it in the hole) would pore over the report and you would be happy, or maybe not. I thought your heavy hitting journalists were supposed to unearth the missing beeleeyons.

      @Lin clown, the use that Skerritt made of the CBI program is to buy patronage from supporters who received largesse from the cabal. The passport sellers, those who are living rent free in the country’s apartments,those ex government ministers who are kept on the payroll for doing very little for the country, he bought the religious establishments, put many square pegs in round holes in the police force and elsewhere.

Skerritt agreed, even if some of his acolytes like “smart a**” Sam Raphael, tried to denounce Linton and explain that he was wrong. Skerritt promised to correct the shortfalls and up to now there isn’t any accounting for the $1.4 billion. Where is the money, Clown? The country deserves answers even if you don’t care.

    I support this pro-active move wholehearted. More needs to be done ✔️, you don’t want to be at the mercy of the EU that wants to see you broke and dependent on them.

      So you prefer Dominica to be selling passports to known criminals?

      As an Island that long obtained its independence, you shouldn’t want any country to see DCA as broke and dependent on them. Unfortunately, it seems this is exactly the position the Island is in today, be it EU, CN or any other country.

      Yes, more needs to be done by the Government of the people for the people and by the people.

      pro-active my foot…..are you a comic?
      if Skerrit wants to speak to the EU his message through his public relations campaign shouldn’t come from India.
      what about de government of Dominica making an official statement addressing all of the issues
      a lot of accusations….. Skerrit empty.
      that basket can’t hold water

      @Matt, pro-active move you say? do you understand the meaning of pro-active? It’s creating or controlling a situation rather than just responding after something has happened. Skerritt is running scared of what the EU and the US are going to do following the report so he’s responding. But alas, the horse has bolted from the stable. The Skerritt administration can’t put the vampire back in the bag.

        And who the h*ll is the E.U but a bloated grouping that doesn’t want to rely on the U.S if a Hitler should happen again. But they shouldn’t use their current position to bully the less fortunate countries. That’s what they do best. So, we are bullied from both ends as the U.S did to Antigua and had to pay in the end.

    What does having women in high places have to do with the legitimacy and integrity of the CBI program? Nothing!!. Then why did the British slap restrictions on access to those holding passports from Dominica? Note also that the regions where Dominica is most active in selling our birthright women aren’t regarded or treated highly by men. Does Skerritt want buyers of Dominica’s citizenship to come and reside here why it’s highlighting the elevation of Dominican women in Dominica. Considering that most families who fork out the money to buy our nationality don’t want to come reside here but use the passport for the access it gives to developed countries. If the reason was for their females to receive respect and more opportunities then we would have had a lot of the passport holders living here now. They want to go and live in America. Canada, Europe etc not in, as Trump described as, “s…hole countries”. The governance by Skerritt makes Dominica a “s… hole ” country.

    So Skerrit and his boys selling our passports to known and wanted criminals, instead of bringing our money here to help us feed ourselves and families, he and his friends have our money on international accounts to do their personal business and when they are exposed by international journalists they taking our money to pay for the defense of done by them eh. Boy afforce these wicked fraudsters wicked
