UPDATE: First part of Al Jazeera documentary, ‘Diplomats for Sale’, airs

The first part of a documentary produced by International TV Network Al Jazeera which names Dominica as one of the countries involved in the alleged sale of diplomatic passports, aired today.

Prime Minister Skerrit said these are allegations made by the United Workers Party (UWP) which they have been making up for years.

Skerrit said it was clear to him, “as it will be to you” that either Linton, the UWP directly, or their foreign collaborators, provided this business information to Al Jazeera for political reasons.

Meantime, UWP leader, Linton, in response, said he has also received from Al Jazeera allegations about him being involved in the sale of diplomatic passport business, “but I am not afraid and I don’t have anybody to sue,” he said.

He said in the first 100 days of a UWP administration, under his watch, The Prevention of the Sale of Diplomatic Immunity Act will be passed in the Dominica Parliament.

    For a news network Al jazeera to have all this information on the “Evil Dr Supremo” and his DLP cabal, imagine he evidence the CIA and FBI/ U.S attorney has on him. I known there must be a lot of sherding, deleting, and avoiding of talking, on phones, taking place :mrgreen:

    This is no surprise. The labour party has an office in Dubai for years specifically set up for selling Dominican passport in the Middle East. As a Dominican try getting through Lebanon on a Dominican passport….good luck with that. Our passports are linked to terrorists, money laundering, racketeering and other crines we know nothing about. I will await the day when the FBI picks up Skerrit and his henchmen in chains

    The sad thing is many laborites will see this and think the Prime Minister is a saint. In regards to Lennox, I wish we could see the full MOU. It’s confusing as to how he could promise ambassador status to someone who was essentially a fictional character. Surely a thorough background check would have revealed the truth? I’ll stay tuned to see part 2 of the news report.

    Misery likes company. Why is the PM so obsessed with Mr. Linton. I understand that he wakes in the unholy hours at nights in clammy sweat shouting Linton! Linton! Linton! On the political platform, Skerrit cannot resist the urge of repeating these two words numerous times, Lennox Linton; in parliament it’s Mr. Linton over and over again; in Cabinet meetings he brings up Lennox Linton’s name repeatedly. My conclusion , Mr. Linton occupies a lot of space in Mr. Skerrit’s mind rent free.

    Ok, My poeple and the Poeple that love Dominica.
    Lets be real how long can we going on selling passport to people we don’t know, never visited the island, or not even living here and even care about us.

    That passport thing is going to sink these island selling passports.

    Who need more than one passport? often it’s criminals!
    Where the passport sold? in Asia and the Middle-East! not in Europe or the U.S!
    How many Passport sold? it seems only the Prime Minister is the only one who knows.

    If I tell you over 30, 000 passports have sold by Dominica since the programme started!

    For OJ:
    Now people did you listen to O.J the former interim Prime minister??
    The clearly show me how he skims the government after hurricane David! that man even had helicopter spreading the fake money he wanted to introduce!

    For Linton:

    Stop lying. There is no mention of Barbados in the program. Al Jazeera calls out Dominica, Greneda, and St. Lucia for selling diplomatic passports to unsavory characters. Antigua and St. Kitts have citizen by investment programs both hosted sordid international figures in the past. Barbados, T&T, Jamaica were not mentioned.

  10. As I See It
    November 26, 2019

    Let’s put politics aside and try for one moment to be fair. First, I commend Al Jazeera for exposing both Mr. Skerrit and Mister Linton in this documentary. Secondly, I complement our local DNO for being fair to both sides.
    What is clear in this documentary is that crimes were possibly committed. I say crime because we know the truth about Alireza Monfared as to twho he allegedly wired money to, who he communicated his plan to wire monies to and who we know we saw him driving with ect.
    The question is, who committed crimes and who would possibly be investigated and maybe jailed for what they did? Was it Linton or Skerrit that committed the crime?
    Here is how I see it: Linton maybe got very close to being involved in a crime but the truth is, getting close to getting into a car accident is not the same as getting involved in an accident. So Linton DID NOT. However, the other leader involved in the documentary got very wounded in the accident and I he got a ticket. PM you in…

    At first Linton was the one who was making Al Jezzra run that story, now Linton name call…it’s gospel truth.
    Now, it seems that only thing I was hearing on the radio is that “Seraphine acted on his own(Boss they going to throw you under the bus) and how linton is the real problem by promising passports. That part was disturbing, I must admit however we only have confirmation from the lawyer. HOWEVER, Why wasnt Titre, and that other man talking about how Monfarat got a Diplomatic Passport as a “Token of appreciation”.

    What are you going to do with Aljazzera Mr. Pm? So they have this man saying you barely spoke and offered him diplomatic passport. What has he presented that has evidently confirmed that indeed what he is saying is true? What has made seraphine a good source of proof when all he says is based on what he thinks and no longer has ant dealings with party? All the proof is off linton’s lawyer and gis signature. So there you have it. One love and peace.

  14. Royal
    November 26, 2019

    Mr. Linton was your signature fradulently scrippled by someone? The very act of deception and corruption you are condemning and claiming illegal you are doing. You were joyously laughing at the though of aljazzera creating and airing the video which in turn did not claim anything on the pm because there was no confidentiality to it since seraphine has no affiliation to or with the party. Aparently, it seems that he was deceived by a friend and you by Bruney. So now the people of Dominica can see for themselves what is going on with you? Anti-corruption……………..

    One love and peace to all.

    TINY BIRD BRAIN KID, I always wonder about this? I would like an honest answer from you even though I fully well know you and honesty are everlasting enemies. Skerrit has no formal training or education about financial matters. Do you think he should have appointed himself the financial Czar in the Cabinet? No wonder strange things are happening.

    After seeing the first part of the Al Jazeera Report, with individuals that I seem to recognize, as well as the audio, I am deeply saddened. At this stage there should be ABSOLUTELY NO TALK as to who aired the dirty linen. The fact is, there is dirty linen and the question is, WHAT ARE WE AS DOMINICANS GOING TO DO ABOUT IT.

    This should now not be about partisan politics or who is RED, BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW. Political Tribes Be damned.

    What we should be concerning ourselves with at present is a TOTAL CLEANSING of DIRTY BEHAVIOR; preservation of our DEMOCRACY and a RESTORATION OF REPUTATION & INTEGRITY.

    This is just not good for our country’s image and surely, all those involved should OWN UP and LEAVE OFFICE for the common good of the country.

    If it is being asserted by those involved and/or captured on film that it is not true, then they should sue Al Jazeera. In that way all the facts will be exposed in court and we can know who is speaking the truth and who is lying.

  18. Sylvester Cadette
    November 26, 2019

    The Prime Minister accused Lennox Linton of convincing Al jazeera to air the story. Surely, some other premise should have been put forward by the PM, but to suggest that Linton has such power as to influence Al Jazeera in that way is quite laughable and, quite frankly, cannot fly as a credible argument.

    Whoever is advising the PM probably should have told him to either keep quiet, or deny it vehemently. But to put out such a ridiculous argument is to literally expose himself. He seem to have indicated to the world that he is unsettled & rattled by this so his best technique ( an often tried psychological technique) is to flip the negative attention back to those who are confronting you.

    It is sad that it has come to that. I pray for all concerned but I also pray that the truth will come out. Whoever is innocent will be innocent and whoever is guilty MUST face the truth and whatever justice that goes with it.

    JUST OWN UP & ASK FOR FORGIVENESS – IT MAY ease your pain.

    • Ibo France
      November 26, 2019

      “Whoever is advising the PM probably should have told him to either quiet or deny it vehemently.”
      Mr. Cadette, the best advice for the PM is to tell him to speak the truth. Come clean with his fellow country men and women.
      O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!

        If you did and comprehended it as such, then you would have seen that the advice which you suggested is exactly what was requested in my last sentence.

I have seen corruption exposed in the US by investigative journalism then the justice department starts the criminal probe.

      Are you so mad that ambassador was not given to you leading up to the 2014 election??

      I remember your words very clearly to me and and a friend who I won’t mention his know when you use to travel all the way from town to go to campaign for a particular candidate in the northern part of Dominica in 2009.

        I have never aspired to be a Minister of Government nor an Ambassador for any Party or Government. It did not even occur to me far less to aspire to it.

        YOU may not want to take my word for it so you could ask the Government directly.

        Stop cooking up stories in order to run from the truth that the Country is in a mess and needs POLITICAL HYgiene

      • Sylvester Cadette
        November 28, 2019

        One other thing. I was not even in Dominica for the 2014 elections nor did I have any contact or talks with anyone to be any ambassador.

        I have never ascribed in any post to being UWP or DLP or DFP or Other Party so why are you ascribing one to me.

        Now for your reasoning: if Al Jazeera were to call someone to verify a story then they automatically “IN TOUCH” with them even if they initiated the call.

    When is Skerrit, Everything negative said about him by Lennox and the opposition is gospel truth to Matt and the UWP supporters.
    When the table is turned around and the story is about Lennox and the UWP, that could be the most untruth that could have been said and ALL sort of excuses are invoked to defend Lennox and the opposition. But…
    Good thing the report was not written by Tony or any DLP MEMBER OR SUPPORTER. The world heard what was said in the video.
    They invited the Al Jazeera to write a report and what they got was a big surprise to Them. They never expected that the HOLE THEY dug THEY would have fallen in it. How deceitful These bunch of Un -Worthy People are. Yet THEY are the ones campaigning on TRANSPARENCY. Dominicans, if you didn’t know…. Well, now you know.

The same thing he has been against. It’s against the UN convention of 1961 re appointment of ambassadors. Why have they not appointed an international LAWYER or LAWYERS.

The embarrassing part of this report is that I am Dominican and it is hard to tell people that I am from such a corrupt place…can you imagine you using all this money to by tee-shirts etc…insane…but the people and jumping up and happy. Yes, other countries have similar issues but for a small country like Dominica with so much poverty, you would think these people would care about the people and country. So, going forward, I do not want anyone to blame the White Man or USA for Dominica current state of underdevelopment…you should now say, it is the Black Man that’s keeping the country back and suffering of its people! But seriously, the PM should be investigated and should not every sleep with his eyes closed. Don’t…

There are allegations of signed documents promising diplomatic status in 28 days. There are comments regarding the absolute need for support for the elections to include vehicles, PA systems etc.

    Skerrit said it was clear to him, “as it will be to you” that either Linton, the UWP directly, or their foreign collaborators, provided this business information to Al Jazeera for political reasons.: Response: Skerrit, once again you are damn failed political liar, meaning you have not read on this issue well. You know very well that Hon Linton would not expose himself and that of his decent professional UWP Party like you continue to do over 19 years now.

However Mr. Linton was bold enough to come on Q95 to explain himself and though I must admit all my years were wiped away or all my questions were answered, I must say that I felt much better. As for Skerrit I must be admit that I didn’t have to listen to the All jazeeza recording to know Roosevelt was very corrupt because we can see acts of corruption every day in Dominica, whether is at the financial center, cool out deals, in fact the term “my cool out” based on my personal investigation came about be as folks that know of secret and corrupt vibes threatened to go public if they don’t get money to cool out (don’t talk).

    “He said in the first 100 days of a UWP administration, under his watch, The Prevention of the Sale of Diplomatic Immunity Act will be passed in the Dominica Parliament.”

    Can you tell us what exactly will this act entail. PSDIA sounds great but what are the details.

    Our sovereignty has been compromised by this corrupt administration, and there are people who call themselves patriotic Dominicans are turning a blind eye because of their personal interest in this passport scheme.

    Al Jazeera go check on Trump, all you claim he corrupt but the American people still wants him and will re-elect him and leave us alone. In some way it is our fault that you guys in our business carrying this story because as usual we blacks are sellout to our own race. The way things must run is the white man control us but yet we don’t see that because our brother is the enemy. When you go broadcast to the world we selling passport to criminals is just giving them your country on a platter. They will investigate anyway so why go bring information to them?

    This is unsurprising. Does anyone remember the fertilizer and garbage bins scandals? The DLP does no fund raising activities. Where does the party get the crazy millions of dollars to buy thousands of airline tickets and party paraphernalia for their misguided supporters? Where do these colossal sums of money for numerous concerts, parties, popular international artistes, boat loads of locals to travel overseas originate? Can you imagine the number of scandals committed by Mr. Skerrit and his morally depraved party that is yet to be unearthed. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Why should any right thinking person vote for a corrupt leader and a scandal plagued political party that have black eyed the country so many times? Time to VOTE THEM OUT!

        I’m just an ordinary, humble human being. I would like to see a Dominican government that governs for everybody and not just party supporters and enablers of the PM. Every mouth should be fed. All citizens should have equal access to the country’s resources. Let’s be fair and just. Where there is no just there can be no peace. Look how well off Skerrit and his close surrogates have become while the vast majority of the population remain dispossessed. Is that cool with you? Stop your sarcasm and grow a conscience.

    Lennox, you think you will bring down our PM, no, no that will not work. Dominicans smarter than you. Trying to block the election but don’t worry Lennox. There is a day under the sun, or rain when YOU WILL BE JUDGED FOR LIES.

      Mr. Linton will not bring down the PM. The PM will self destruct as he is presently doing. The man is committing political suicide by his corrupt practices. Here are just a few: missing CBI 1.2 billion; PetroCaribe EC $ 270 000 000; garbage bins & fertile scandals; Aljazeera report and the list goes on ad nauseam. In any other Caribbean country, the PM would have been behind bars in solitary confinement.

      Stop grasping at the wind to besmirch the good gentleman’s name. The man is of impeccable character in like your scandalous PM who is always in international news for all the wrong things. Right now both of Dominica’s eyes re black and swollen by a severely corrupt man. Mr. Linton’s hands are spotlessly clean.

    The people of the United States are still standing with Trump even though the opposing side say he corrupt and may well win re-election. But they always wants us to turn against our own people and burn our countries down with their BS. They are always investigating us to bring us down but who investigating them for killing our bananas, poisoning our agriculture with all their diseased infected so called inputs and sick infested foods that flood our countries. Boy when you small or poor survival is a very hard thing and if we small Caribbean islands especially where black people are the majority don’t come together we stand no chance. But in any case an investigation is just that an investigation. Why not wait when you have conclusive evidence to bring it out and why bring it out and this time? Something is in the making and if we the black Caribbean people cannot see that then we will keep falling into these people traps as we use to sell out own people back in the days

    Once a white man or an American says it, it’s the truth but when a black man, especially one we know, it’s false. These white people know that these little black Caribbean islands are making money from the CBI and their goal is to stop it so we can continue to depend on them. Who is me to ask anyone to see it that way anyway, we all free to believe what ever we want but we will see what the end results bring. When people are in poverty they do what ever it takes to get out and ofcourse people will talk, because they want you to remain there.

  54. "The Master Plan"

    After listening to part 1 of the Al Jazeera investigation do you know what Bible story that came to mind? The story in Acts 16 of the prison doors that opened due to an earthquake caused by praise and worship. But here is the part of the story that really came to mind: 27 “The jailer woke up to see the prison doors wide open. He assumed the prisoners had escaped, so he drew his sword to kill himself. ” 28 “But Paul shouted to him, “Stop! Don’t kill yourself!”
    Right now I feel there is need in to shout to to some. So like Paul I say “Stop! Don’t kill yourself!” I know you are very scared but please sir don’t kill yourself because you have given us the impression that ONLY you can build Dominica and if you die Dominica is dead too because only you have the answer and ONLY YOU HAVE THE MASTER PLAN

Don’t kill yourself Mr Prisoner!” I know you are very scared but please sir don’t kill yourself because you have given us the impression that ONLY you can build Dominica and if you die Dominica is dead too because only you have the answer and ONLY YOU HAVE THE MASTER PLAN

    The embarrassment was to hear PM say that Linton, Massin the cemetary and UWP supporters were making those allegations longtime. So Mr. Police Commissioner Daniel Carbon and National Security minister Raymond Blackmoore, all you heard those accusations longtime and you NEVER investigated them to clear the name of Dominica and the PM? Boy all you bad wii gason. So since all you failed to investigate allegations made long time about the PM it had to take Al Jazeera investigators all the way from the middle east to investigate and expose us to the world? I cannot see how we going to have any kind of election with that exposure we got. I hope Charles Savarin has called and put together an interim government to clean the mess of Skerrit

    Al Jazeera uprooted those Rotten teeths we have in Dominica and those teeths were smelling so much that some right in Antigua, Grenada, Barbados got infected. Whenever those Rotten teeth come to keep any kind of meeting, tell them their teeth smelling. If you see them on their car call them rotten teeth. If you see any of them including new candidates in church, super market or even at a funeral call the “ROTTEN TEETHS. What will you call them ladies and gentlemen? ROTTEN TEETHS

    Very disturbing and very damaging to the image of Dominica. Although part 2 which has to do with Dominica is coming tomorrow, I guess I am going to have to stay on my toilet seat all day so that I could vomit, peepee, and poopoo when they will reveal the filth of Roosevelt Skerrit to the world. My God this man took only 15 yrs to destroy what was built since 1492. Now I have to start to ask myself IF he did not sell Ross to Motley. The man sold everything he met us with. What next will he sell? Our Birth certificate? Maybe that too has been sold and we don’t know.
