Fontaine accuses government of trying to embarrass him

JMEC Senior Economic Advisor, Dr. Thomson Fontaine (middle) makes a point during the meeting of Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission in Sudan

Former IMF Economist, Dr. Thompson Fontaine, has accused the government of Dominica of trying to embarrass him.

Fontaine was speaking during a recent interview with Journalist Matt Peltier as it relates to the arrest warrant which has been issued for him.

“The way I view this whole thing, it seems to me that the government is out to embarrass me for whatever reason,” he remarked. “I have done no crime in Dominica, what I have been accused of on the 7th of February, 2017 everybody knows that I was actually at Q-95 in studio broadcasting so I could not have been involved in any of what happened.”

Fontaine went on to say that the case has been adjourned ‘sine die’, yet the warrant has been kept open which means that if he returns to Dominica, he will be arrested.

“I will be bailed, yes, but they are going to take my passport away from me and say I have to stay until the case is called,” he stated. “I see that as a very delicate ploy, it is a trap,” Fontaine said.

Dr. Fontaine was in 2017, appointed Senior Economic and International Policy Adviser on the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission, overseeing implementation of Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudanthe newest country in the world.

He explained that he is in a senior leadership position in South Sudan and a lot of progress is being made, “and I cannot afford not to be in South Sudan.”

In 2018 , Fontaine was among UWP members including Opposition Leader Lennox Linton and former prime minister Edison James, charged by the police with incitement.

The defendants are accused of unlawfully inciting people and jeopardizing the public safety order and public peace,  contrary to law, following a public meeting in Roseau on February 7, 2017 calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

After having been adjourned to March 2019, the matter suddenly moved to November 22, 2018 at the request of lead prosecutor, Trinidadian Senior Counsel, Israel Khan.

However,  Fontaine, who was summoned and served to appear in court was absent and his lawyer, Gildeon Richards, told the court that he was not able to account for Fontaine’s absence.

At Khan’s request, Magistrate Asquith Riviere issued a warrant for Fontaine’s arrest.

Former prime minister and UWP leader Edison James who was also charged and who has been residing in Barbados since after Hurricane Maria, is yet to be served.

    A brilliant if the soil and with a real doctorate. The double doctorate dude who can’t pass any exam or research any topic and who was given two honorary degrees is jealous and wants to keep Dominicans poor and foolish, therefore he wants to silence those educated citizens who oppose him. We are very proud of Dr. Fountain and what he had accomplished. He certainly has flown the Dominican flag high compared to the one who had CBS come and do an expose on Dominica.

      Well said, well put, well read. Dr, Fontaine is one of Dominica’s highest extinguish professional and needs to be respected and recognised highly.
      The UWP has a well diverse group of professionals from the leader, Hon Lennox Linton and together with Dr. Fontaine has worked outside of Dominica doing wonder and achieving alot and now BACK IN Dominica to help guide us into decent development of our failed Dominica by this corrupted incompetent childish Skerrit and the worse 19 cabinet ministers and visionless Labour party Dominica has witnessed. As this failed DLP Leader and others are dumb to socio-development the our country Dominica will perish. It has perish to the point already dead and Skerrit and his clowns and failed corrupt Labour government has destroyed our Dominica and our people more. Skerrit and failed Clowns must Go.
      We make way for incoming Leader Hon. Lennox Linton and his highly professional UWP Team. Dominica be strong, the time is near, chat with your neighbours.

    Dr. Fontaine is a supremely qualified economist, so much so, that international organizations and foreign countries are willing to pay for his expertise. Skerrit has got not even a scintilla of formal training in anything to do with economics. Yet, he has appointed himself as Minister of Finance. What an irony! Now he wants to jail the most prominent economist of Dominica. The country needs eminently qualified, visionary, fiercely patriotic men and women of the soil to run the day to day affairs of the State. The present driver cannot drive. He is driving the economy into the abyss. It is persons like Dr. Fontaine that can turn the ailing economy around 180⁰.

      Well said IBO France… I concur that this current Odd Minister must stand before an enquiry and account for our money, every cent over the past failed and corru0t 20 years. There is no way that Skerrit can com close or into the shoes of Hon Lennox Linton, Dr. Thompson Fontaine, and many others within the UWP team. they are focussed, committed, strategic and will engaged our poor people into what development is all about. Our people has been abused and pushed about as beggars into the Red Clinic and reduced us more into poverty and this has kept us as beggars up at the Financial Centre. It is a shame, a big disgrace that those politically illiterate Labour writers on DNO who are in denial will never comprehend. To them Labour Political clowns who write frequently, they are blind loyalists and traitors to our ailing Dominica where failed and incompetent Skerrit and his immature illiterate ministers have failed us. They talk so damn much, they are unsure of the English vocabulary.

    The Dominican citizenry know who are the real criminals. Be warned. That is the method of operation of Dictators. They and their cult will victimize, arrest, jail, maim, kill those who dare speak out about their evil rule. Public abuse of the judicial system. A Bogus Trial, aimed at jailing innocent patriotic Dominicans has been illegally set up. Stand up people, tomorrow will be you.

      Perfectly articulated! Dictators only care about maintaining power to crush any opposition or criticism of them. They demand loyalty but gives none. Skerrit is very cozy with the most despicable dictators in this world. He endeavors to emulate them. He uses the military might of the state, the presently numerous loopholes in the electoral system to barricade himself in office. Nothing lasts forever. His day of reckoning is rapidly approaching.

    In the international world Thompson Fontaine is seen and respected an a real doctor in ecconomics, who is able to fix their economy. In Dominica we have a so called minister of finance thats is a disaster, while they try to jail our own Dr. Fountaine for no crime. I hope the people of Grand Fond treats the DLP very harshly.

      ” In Dominica we have a so called minister of finance thats is a disaster, “. This is so true and I wonder if it is failed immature Skerrit “I still Red” has referred to. I think who the cap fits, let them wear it. We have questioned Skerrit so he is on the list to be that person to be pointed fingers at. We recall the Bin Bobol, the Fertlizer Bobol and many more Bobolistic activities that will be in the open soon. Skerrit be prepared to be in confession.
      Skerrit must Go and now.
      We welcome Hon. Lennox Linton and hi professional UWP Team. We trust that Team. We need failed idiotic Skerrit out. We welcome UWP, a Trusted decent Team for our nature isle, Dominica. Dominicans, please wake up. Kick out failed, immature Skerrit and his failed Bobolistic, immature, dangerous Labour Team.

    How do people become so evil minded by using political mischief to jail a completely innocent man? Why pursue so passionately the downfall of a fellow countryman with an impressive record and a man of such impeccable character? If Skerrit were to use this very passion to try and correct the ills, presently plaguing the country, Dominica would be the envy of the Caribbean. In the face of such grotesque injustice to Dr. Fontaine, it’s quite befuddling that the Law Association, the Business Sector, the Clergy, and local influential institutions, organizations and individuals remain stoically indifferent. The people have to stand up as in Hong Kong. Nothing a government fears more than the collective wrath of the people. I’m convinced that Skerrit feels emboldened because of the docility of Dominicans. Take a stand and send these corrupt bandits packing at the next election.

Roads are bad, hospital is struggling, Health Centers are crying in deep pain, Roads are deplorable, and this failed Labour government is politically illiterate to the needs of the country and its people that they themselves have created and reduced us to heavy poverty.
      Domininca desperately needs change. A change from this inept failed Prime (Odd) minister who has failed Domininca for over 19 years. there is no clue of the understanding and processes of socio-economic development from this government led by Skerrit, the reason why our Domininca has gotten no where and will not get anywhere until this failed incompetent Skerrit and his worthless corrupt Labour government…

    “I have done no crime in Dominica, what I have been accused of on the 7th of February, 2017 everybody knows that I was actually at Q-95 in studio broadcasting so I could not have been involved in any of what happened.”

    Fontaine, I have a very good memory and I can still see the words from you, via DNO, you said: “We are going to shut down this country”! That was a week before the incident.

    And boy, I was so worried because I have some very precious people in Dominica. So why are you removing yourself from that incident by saying that you were @Q-95, what difference does it make, where you were at the time of the incident, you were a big part of the plan. Is the Lord of the Crime ever at that site of the crime? Of course not!

    How much more coward can you be?

      Elizabeth, I believe there is a tremendous difference in someone suggesting they will shut down the country; and the Labor Party led by Charles Savarin in 1979 shut down the country, and in the process overthrew Patrick John the then elected Labor Party prime minister, from office.

      Do, you recall; or I had not yet introduced you to politics; but even if that’s case you are old enough to remember the forty days, and  forty nights of civil war instigated, organized and directed by Charles Savarin, and that crapo Roosevelt Skerrit though he was yet a little boy ………………………………………………………………………

      A person saying they are going to do something, or wish to do something is not a crime.

        Where does he come off with saying that he introduced me to politics–there is no, no, no, truth in that claim.

        It is must be that there is something special about me, the reason why he wants the World to know that he knows me

        You know Elizabeth is supposed to be my friend, at least we were were supposed to be good friends until I introduced her to Roosevelt politics, in the days when I supported him.

        I feel very sorry for her because she believe because life is good for her in Canada, that is the way  it is for people in Dominica. Elizabeth have some issues, if she was in Dominica, seeking medical treatment, she would be dead.

        …………………………………………………………………………………………………

        Only a politician in Dominica might be able to afford that; ( and let’s say Roosevelt Skerrit).

        I’ve had to have heart surgery, which if I was  in Dominica  I may have died; such surgery and hospital stay  cost over a million dollars; so in Dominica it would cost three million plus, if there was a doctor who could conduct such operation.

          Just because you are half dead running through Los Angeles in search of medical service that doesn’t mean that the rest of the World is like you. Why don’t mind your own business?

    13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father’s house, which were better than thyself:

    14 Behold, with a great plague will the Lord smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:

    15 And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.

It is all about Skerrit, who is well off, and they may be sitting about awaiting for the abusive Red Clinic to be functi0oning again that they receive “Crumbs” from Failed Skerrit, who knows not how to regenerate our economy that he has reduced our people to poverty and have them quing up for money up at the Financial Centre. How disgusting, how shameful, how fraudulent, how Bobolistic, deceiving an “Odd Minister can be.

    Sometime in the 1990’s during the Medical Benefits Inquiry in Antigua puppeteer Astaphans said to lawyer Dr Errol Cort I dont want to embarrass you. Dr Cort immediately responded and said, “Never! You could never do that. You are not enough.” The audience laughed at him. Don’t think he felt like a king after that. Why am I saying that? Dr Fontaine, no matter how hard this government and its political assassins try they CANNOT humiliate you. Your intelligence is superior to that of all of labor’s goons. Try as they may they will never succeed. As soon as the elections are over the tenure of Asquith Riviere will also be over. The case will be withdrawn. You will be free to return home and serve your country. They cannot embarrass You!!!!!!!! Your services will be needed to guide the investigators on all things financial and to follow the trail as to where our money is sleeping so that we arrest and charge and imprison all those vagabonds. They need two pits/graves, not one.

    This corrupt government is trying to silence dissent and the right to assemble and protest. I totally agree with Dr Fontaine that it’s a ploy to incarcerate him and cause him to lose his high level job in Sudan. Heartless people!

    Skerrit is abusing his powers that were given to him by the people on a daily basis. We need to withdraw these powers from this corrupt and incompetent dictator at the next election. He has gone way over the top and he needs to go!

    Skerrit think he is God but I want him to know that Proverbs 26;27 says this:
    “If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you first.”

    Sir, what is good for the goose is good for the gander…the same would apply to any ordinary citizen if that person was in your position. There would be a warrant out for the person’s arrest. Your lawyer was unable to account for your absence which means you have not been in communication with him.

    This is PERSECUTION! Instead of using the taxpayer’s money to create employment, repair pothole diseased roads, renovate mold and rodent infested public edifices, Skerrit and his mongoose gang paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to foreign lawyers to persecute members of the opposition on trumped up charges. They are more destructive to the lives of law abiding citizens than any natural disaster, inclusive of Erika and Maria. Only beggars, gluttons, miscreants and rogues lend their support to such a poor, failed representative body of the country. But, rest assured, in the end, GOOD always triumphs over EVIL. No bad deed goes unpunished, the table is sure to turn one day.

    So Fountain apparently has an alibi for his where abouts on said night yet he is to be arrested. However, questions and acquisitions are going around against a certain ‘powerful’ man, acquisitions given strength by another “powerful man” and no body blinks.
    And to everybody making excuses about who say xyz and they didnt say xyz and they didnt mean xyz. Just know…if it was you or your brother that was going on about…your/their behind would be Stockfarm all now. Guess some men above the law

      You have me well confused. Is this a riddle or a puzzle? Man, just come plain without being libelous. I know we live in litigious times but don’t be that vague as your efforts will amount to nothing.

      It certainly appears that the laws are to be obeyed by one set. Every rope no matter how long, has an end.

    These Pigs who cant go out there and represent themselves and be their own man are hell bent on trying to place Dominicans who have the capacity to work and get high profile jobs on their own account under some pressure. The entire world knows that this corupt bunch of people who have the political power are a bunch of corrupt people and that is why the World Bank had to pull away from that bunch. It is a bloddy shame that these DAMNASSES are trying to tarnish people reputation and trying to bring them down to the gutters with them.

      I take umbrage to you referring to these heartless people as pigs. You are doing a great injustice to domesticated pigs everywhere.
