$3.9-million CBI funds approved for constituency projects

Charles said all constituencies will benefit

Minister of Youth, Sports, Culture and Constituency Empowerment Justina Charles has revealed that government has approved $3.9-million which will be used for constituency projects across the island.

Speaking on Kairi’s Heng Program, Charles said the funds will be coming from the island’s Citizenship by Investment Program.

She every constituency will receive assistance, including those held by opposition United Workers Party (UWP).

“The Minister of Finance just approved $3.9-million for us,” Charles stated. “The $3.9-million, we are now going across the island in assisting with constituency projects, no constituency is left out including the six of the opposition party. All of them will be benefiting this time with $300,000 to assist with projects within their constituency.”

She said when this is done, the government will be empowering the constituencies, persons living in these constituencies as well as village councils.

“When you tell me we have for example, over $700,000 going in washrooms from that money, government is trying to eradicate pit toilet which is a very good move,” Charles stated. “For us to do that – we work through the Ministry of Housing , we work through the Ministry of Finance – some of the Parliamentary representatives may decide, I think I want to expedite the process and some of my funds that is given I will put into washrooms, I will put into roads and other constituency projects.”

Additionally she stated that housing over $1-million will go towards housing.

“Some of them are new houses for individual and families, some of them are housing renovation,” Charles noted.

She mentioned also that monies will go towards road development.

“We know it is critical and we need to see improvement in our road network, and while government is doing the main road and still financing some of the secondary roads, but as Parl Reps sometimes you may understand, I need to give priority this one, it is critical and the whole road is deteriorating and I want to make life easier for the drivers, for the people commuting and the people using the roads,” she stated.“So roads we have $1.6 million being spent on secondary roads in constituencies across the island.”

    oh Lord, that Lennox Linton have real power! The man only says a few words on t.v. and the money starts flowing. Imagine if he was the leader of our country? This has really open my eyes.

    This is U.S.$.68,700 per constituency on average. Not all constituencies will benefit equally, so there will be some that will receive more and other less, or nothing at all. That is the reality of it. It would be more useful if Mrs. Charles could spell out specifically what projects exactly this money is to be spend on.

    Kudos to the Government on this. I hope that Dominicans will continue to see the benefits of this program in action.

    In an effort to confirm the so called treachery of Mr. Linton because of his interview with CBS, money from the CBI fund is falling like rain on Dominica. Their has been no organized disbursement of the funds , which is what Mr. Linton has been saying, no transparency, no accountability. During the last budget, approximately $2 million were budgeted for constituency development, with no approval from parliament, we are hearing $3.9 million will be taken from the CBI fund for constituency development. The minister of finance does not tell us, whether all those millions that are being withdrawn, are from the sales of passport during 2015 or 2016. The minister of finance does not tell us whether the budgeted $2million will be added to the $3.9 million or whether the budgeted $2 million have been used up. I believe the $3.9 million that are being withdrawn from the CBI fund should be labeled, operation make Lennox Linton look bad.

    Hello and good afternoon my people. Well we are seeing many projects finance by the CBI funds but that’s still not telling us much. We need a financial audit of the program to determine how many passports were issued and the amount paid for each passports which will tell us exactly how much funds were raised. Our Government must represent all of our citizens regardless of their political Affliation therefore Ms Charles shouldn’t have to say that all areas will received help from the program including the opposition held areas. Ms Charles calculation is not correct based on the number of constituencies we have so please check your numbers.

    What about taxes collected from the Highway Maintenance Levy??? So you mean without the CBI program our highways/roads would not be maintained? We need CBI funds to patch holes in the roads and sidewalks??? Please tell us what the Highway Maintenance Levy being used for!!!!!!

      January 18, 2017

      Highway robbery more like it! I heard someone refer to it as the pot-hole tax. And that separate slip you have to stick to your windscreen is a waste because obviously they will not give you thast unless you pay the normal road tax too. So drop the pretence, admit that the government has increased road tax and at least safe money in administration costs. You know that road tax today costs more than my insurance? That is ridiculous. If anyone has found a way of removing the old tax stickers from the windscreen I would love to hear it because that is a damned nuisance.

    We are waiting for the box to explode to reveal the truth to us.

    Bloody cheek Justina

    Why is there a need to mention UWP constituencies will be included? We are all Dominicans irrespective of our political allegiance. Is there a warning in Justina’s address -vote for us or else we treat you like Salusbury?

    The wording of her address is very interesting.

    I am a tad intrigued by the timing of this CBI distribution.

    Mr Lennox exposes the debacle which is the CBI and hey presto there is money on the table (albeit a tiny fraction of the huge sums already received) .

    My question is; was Mr Linton right in exposing the alleged problems with the CBI?

    My next question is; so why is Mr Linton being vilified?

    Do not shoot me, I am just a concerned citizen who is interested in this ever so clandestine CBI.

    Is a good thing LL spoke on CBS 60 minutes…..CBI moneys coming out from all under d mattress for all kinds of projects. Expose them Lennox. People like senior council A and the others who have been benefiting from CBI money are getting personal now,,, . Nassief? Sorhaindo? More to come .

    The bulk of the cash will be allocated to Vielle Case, Portsmouth and Grandbay and if, only if there is any change remaining Salusbury, Marigot and Roseau will be thrown some scrap.

    Justina said…. “when this is done, the government will be empowering the constituencies, persons living in these constituencies as well as village councils”. Really this should read : “….will not be empowering the constituencies, we are preparing to rig the next elections, will be buying votes and corrupting the minds of the poor and vulnerable people of these deprived, locked in, abandoned communities. This is a fraud called “Buying loyalty……handouts, …….something is happening mentality”. Yes “Something is happening….”, it is called corruption and Bobol big tie. No planning, no strategic plan, just go and give money to poor cement on old cement. What a political comedy to have Justina Charles, the wife of stalwart decent man Pierre Charles.

  16. January 18, 2017

    The Supreme Leader, newly crowned the “Millionaire Maker” of Dominica is at it again…dropping a few crumbs from his enormous table loaded with “passport cash” down to the poor Dominicans who are either too blinded by greed or too dependent to see what’s really happening. As the United States Government is beginning to take a very serious look at the diplomatic appointments of the Prime Minister he is now driven by fear to start spending the money. However, what he does choose to “share” with ALL the Citizens of his Country is pocket change in comparison to the millions being raked in by hundreds of agents and close affiliates. By informing us through Mrs. Justina Charles that we will be sharing a mere 3.9 Million Dollars between all 21 constituencies the Supreme Leader expects us to respond with excitement and gratitude. For what? A few crumbs off the CBI table? Do we look like mice to you, Sir?

    Apparently, since Hon. Linton was interviewed on 60 Minutes, passport money flowing steadily. Projects are being announced left, right and center. What a joke. It took shame for these greedy bastards to commence projects that’s part of the responsibility of every government. These guys are a bunch of jokers.

    Damage control is on a rise. Thank you Lennox because your input on CBS 60 money flowing in Dominica right now. Now Justina what do you mean by ” even constituencies of UWP?” Does the money belong to Labor or Dominicans? you sick and low minded people who holds positions and is called honorable is sicking. Only in Dominica you all can insult, abuse power and still get away with it. Don’t you all listen to politics in the USA? We are so Damn ignorant in this country. From Venezula to Chavez to China and now passport. Where are our growth in factories, agricultural investments, other major export investments,hotels now seem to be our new saviour.

    Please stop treating Dominicans like hungry children.

    I believe Dominicans want to see a pretty city, mariners, well kept coast lines and roads to our tourist sites. Wotten waven road has been a mess for the longest while. People want to see investors opening up malls, stores making money, nice side walks, getting rid of the slum we call a town. Stop sharing money to patch people roof. Sickening, sickening, sickening.

No one on Dominica at this juncture can take on this enterprise posing as a government better yhan Lennox. Dominicans including Diasporans must look carefully and give that man 100% support to force Skerrit to account Dominica for its Millions for its CBI and diplomatic passports. support you Country first people. search your hearts, your consciences, your souls. Dig deep my people and think of the damage this one man is doing to our beautiful country, simply because we keep voting for him.

    ‘The Passport for Cash’ scheme, ordinary as well as DIPLOMATIC passports causes a gaping hole in the international SECURITY architecture.

    Is it by coincidence that all those foreign culprits, involved, one way or the other, with the law for fraud, money-laundering, bribery, possess our DIPLOMATIC passports?

    Skerritt’s Gov’t is ashamed, scared, to disclose the names of all those Ambassadors, and others with our DIPLOMATIC passports and diplomatic posts. THE Cabal REFUSE

    Skerritt’s Govt cannot even revoke the DIPLOMATIC Passports of those foreigners involved in criminal acts.

And tell me, Justina, whether constituencies held by UWP are not a part of Dominica. Politics has divided our island so much that it is not even funny. That remark should never have come out of your mouth because Dominica first and then constituents second.
    I’ve been saying that politics and religion are two institutions that separate and divide a people. Dominica is just too small for all this mess. Members of this present administration should be ashamed of themselves.

How many of our passports were sold from 2004 to 2014, when all projects were finance by petro caribe , and how every cent was used 2. How many passports have been sold from 2014 to date, and, how were monies spent3. It’s our damn business to know Mr. Skerrit!

    Anyway, I hope Dominicans start thanking Lennox, hard it not been for him we would not be hearing about CBI money spending everywhere so!

        Does the CBI really raise $50 million per month considering the paltry sum available? Which is correct? If so what is the rest being spent on?

    Why does special reference have to be made to” all constituencies” benefiting from this program? Isn’t it automatic that the government is for all constituencies despite political preference? Just goes to show how deeply seeded the division caused by politics is in this country.

      I agree with you, why did she single out these constituencies? I am under the impression that nothing was being done to these villages before but we will wait and see how the funds will be distributed.

      This is a clear admission that they have been starving the constituencies that dared to vote against Skerrit up till now.

    Before the Panama paper leak nothing was being done and the few projects we got were all petro caribe. Now constituencies, village councils friend’s of Skerrit have projects all over, and this time around all projects and salaries are from the sale of passport? What a change of fortune!

    All of a sudden if King Lennox did not put a BOMB on the government this projects would not come on papers, unless its not seen on the ground its only paper talk. Continue to be the watch dog for us king Lennox, Christian and the rest.

      That I checking there wii Johnjay. Now all kind of projects coming out thanks to CBI. So what was happening all the years before we reach on 60 minutes?

  62. January 17, 2017

    giving opposition constituencies is not a favour if you think so it is a moral obligation. now compare $18,000 000. dollars for a bridge and a wall to $3,000 000. dallars to be spread across 21 constituencies . it looks like another favour.

    This CBI is our newly discovered petroleum deposit. We are spending that money like drunken soldiers. Except it is a finite resource and as we know with crude oil, it too will run dry.

  64. Sudden Report on Passport Money
    January 17, 2017

    Lady Please…all of a sudden. I suppose CBS woke you up. All the time Lennox was asking. Stupes.

    • January 17, 2017

      The agents that came out in defence of the CBI program and also the PM administration wasn’t getting the kind of support that they had hoped for, people are checking for themselves because they know better ,questions have been put to the administration for years and the PM refused to answer plus when we called for a debate between the PM and the Opposition leader he also refused. PM have the attitude like Trump but in the USA the people take actions in Dominica the people just sit back with their mouth shot but the tide is turning now.

    All of a sudden, I guess Mr Linton should have on CBS years ago :-D :-D

  66. January 17, 2017

    Wow. Suddenly funds from the CBI are being made available for all sorts of things. What about the feeder roads for the Salisbury, Marigot and Wesley areas. These are productive agriculture areas, farmers need these roads to get to their farms.
    Oops I forgot, they did not vote DLP so they do not matter, wicked Govt. and DLP supporters. Don’t you all realize that the whole country is being punished because we are being deprived of potential export earnings from these agricultural produce.
    When are you DUM I NI CANS gonna wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ps until questions were being raised about the CBI money we were not hearing any thing about that windfall
