PM Skerrit says thorough investigation into Roseau violence a must

Scene in Roseau on the night of February 7

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has said that after meeting with CARICOM Heads in Guyana, he is convinced a thorough investigation is needed into the disturbances that took place in Roseau on the night of February 7.

Skerrit, who is presently in Guyana for the Twenty-eight Intercessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM, spoke live via telephone on Kairi’s Heng Program on Friday morning.

“After meeting with the Heads of Governments myself as a group and also those who approached me on a one on one, I am more fortified now than ever that there must be a thorough investigation into the disturbances of February 7,” he stated.

He pointed out that the country has a right to know what really took place during the disturbances, which occurred after a meeting organized by the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) and the Dominica Freedom Party (DFP).

“I do believe that the country has a right to know what exactly happened, who were responsible so that this riot and vandalism which we are not known for, will not happen again because Dominica is not known for this,” Skerrit said.

The Prime Minister stated that riots have taken place in Dominica in the past but never on such a scale.

“We’ve had riots before, we’ve had protest action before but it has never descended into this riotous vandalism which took place in our country,” he stated. “This is not what we are known for in Dominica and this is not what we are known for in the Caribbean.”

He said CARICOM leaders he has spoken to are appalled by the behavior of the UWP, who he is blaming for the violence.

“I can tell you that Heads are appalled by the behavior of the leadership of the United Workers Party,” he remarked.

The Prime Minister is convinced that the entire matter was engineered by Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, and his followers.

“Mr. Linton knows by his utterances and his prior planning, they engineered this thing because you know at any meeting, any public meeting, any event any political party would have, you know and in our case, once the leader speaks and you tell people to go home safely, drive safely, thank you for coming, meeting has ended,” he stated. “In that case on February 7, that was never said. What he (Linton) said in effect was we can end anytime, the police cannot tell us what to do, we can do what we want and what we want was to create havoc, dysfunction, and vandalism in our country Dominica.”

He described the matter as an “unprecedented situation which was brought about by the leadership of the UWP and the DFP.”

Skerrit also said that based on intelligence, one of the intentions of the leadership of the UWP “was to have the police shoot somebody dead in Roseau.”

“They wanted somebody dead, to be shot by the police so that they could parade this in the international community, to say that police have killed somebody,” he stated.

Skerrit also stated he is maintaining that one of the intentions of the UWP was to storm the Financial Center, where the office of the Prime Minister is located, and stay there until their demands were met.

    Would someone categorise Skerrit as a liar, a habitual political liar, or is it that he just not mature enough to better comprehend matters of importance?
    Skerrit, if you know this was planned and you have the evidence present yourself t the police and take tothem, stop running about like a dog with no tail trying to catch a bone with Liar written on it.. The truth is not what you appear to be able to dignify.

    The leader is correct, such incidents must be investigated. But there are so many incidences that have occurred and continue to happen in Dominica and there is no such thorough investigation; I wonder why.

    I do hope after all these investigation if nothing concrete comes out of it; what will be your statement; an apology perhaps.

    it is so interesting that if the police put out a bulletin that they need to interview xxx those persons would actually walk into police hq, but no because they are trying to intimidate and harrass people they behave diffirently so that the rest of the nation gets scared.

    the pm is a liar, and most of you except the relatively few knows that he is a liar.

    To KID ON THE BLOCK (SPECIFICALLY)

    No wonder you are still a KID on the Block – still stuck in your ignorance and fail to grow into adolescence; grow out from your childhood days into early, right-thinking teenage-hood.
    Its amazing, yet utter shame really, that a government should allow a country to disintegrate into the condition that Dominica is now in. It is a real dishonor for an presumptive Honorable PM to get dissuaded into the activities that are being alleged of his indulgence.

    But where are we heading as a concerned People?

    We cannot depend on the delegates of CARICOM who themselves me be dissuaded by the PM himself.

    We need to plea to the US UN and UK, someone of the U’s for an intervention.

    And the Constitution needs to be amended to extract the Police from under the seat of the ruling government.

    A simple way to see if a person is speaking the truth or not is by comparing what they said yesterday to what they say today. Another way is see if what they say to one audience is the same they saying to another. I did this and here is what I see:

    Skerrit yesterday to caricom heads: “Mr. Chairman and Colleague Heads, on a rather personal note…” “The situation at home, I can assure you, is under control and I expect (notice: “I expect”. He had already taken a decision ok), that a thorough investigation will be carried out…”

    Skerrit today to dlp fanatics: “After meeting with the Heads of Governments myself as a group and also those who approached me on a one on one, I am more fortified now than ever that there must be a thorough investigation into the disturbances of February 7,” he stated.

    He told CARICOM all was well and he had already taken a decision but tells laborites is after speaking to Caricom heads he is convinced an investigation is needed. You hear LIES?…

    This is what I call running a Country. If you are law abiding you have nothing to fear. There are laws for harassments so what take the police to court. The most dangerous fugitive in the world we caught him in Dominica and he is now in prison. The march was in aid of what. The president is not going to accept the PM RESIGNATION for catching the most wanted man in the whole wide world. There is no excuse for setting your town on fire.

    My fellow Citizens of Dominica, do not be fooled by those leaving abroad. Their intentions are to stir up discord amongst those who on the soil. They parade themselves as champions of the causes of the people and lovers of Dominica but yet still with all that intense love for country – it’s insufficient to have them relocate and be part of the engagement on the ground to repair all what they declare is broken. When we destroy our stores, streets, buildings, and other infrastructure we are left to repair and replace. These folks that seat in the comfort of their homes and apartments in NYC and several other cities throughout the US, UK, Canada etc. all wakeup to their normal lives while we are left in disarray. If you love Dominica so much that you want to dictate how and who it should be governed by, come home. Return to the soil and show us your love. Let your actions replace your speech. And PS: These folks who speak the most are always the ones who do the least.

    After listening to the Prime Minister on the Heng this morning, I am convinced that Dominica is in very dangerous water and something is about to take place in Dominica, very soon.. With less than two weeks before the carnival I heard the prime minister inviting Guyanese to our carnival this year; but I hope no one takes his advise because this carnival has the signs and pointing to a very dangerous, deadly, and rioting carnival and therefore as a concerned citizen I am admonishing all Dominicans as well as visitors to stay away from this year’s carnival. I am also calling on the government to cancel this years street jump up because I can smell blood.

    I would like the CBI program to be invested. People who are using Dominica passport could be doing lots of crimes and they been passing as Dominicans. I f these things start happening Dominicans will have problem traveling oversees, countries will close their doors on them, and Dominicans will be in hot water. Does Dominicans, still love to travel. if they does, they better get educated about others that are destroying the country. Do the prime minister gives an annual total of the money that he collected from the CBI program. Wake up Dominicans. It is hot!!! and getting hotter!!!! Don’t think of your party, think of your country.

    Honourable prime minister, one of the ways to make sure this type of behaviour which was exibited on February 7 2017 never happens again is to make sure the perpetrators receive a lengthy prison sentence. This will send a message to others that such behaviour is not tolerated in Dominica. Anything less than that will embolden these hooligans and vagabonds.

So often he brings us information and breaking news and not one time is he challenged by Skerrit or Tony Astaphan. If Angelo was giving us fake news and alternative facts, he would have long been sued or arrested by now , so go figure what that tell us. Skerrit’s so called intelligence service is only boys and girls that tell him what he wants to hear, they afraid to tell him the truth.

    Skerrit stop being an A…. If anyone was trying to overthrow you, you would still be stuck in Greece on exile and carbon would be missing. Why would UWP ask for permission have meetings with commissioner who then has heavy police presence and trying to overthrow. Makes no sense. History has shown that Everytime the UWP has some protest something nearby is vandalized and the pm know who did it but never had an investigation.

    This is the same tactics employed by the likes of Hitler, Castro, molusolini et al. Police need to get shells from shot alleged to be fired from protesters see if they don’t match Thiers. Why is it only specific business were targeted. This looks like it was planned ahead. DFP and UWP will make perfect scapegoat and instead of talking about passports in hands of criminals and what was details of Greece trip conversation is about opposition arrest and exaggerated riot

      ,“I do believe that the country has a right to know what exactly happened, who were responsible so that this riot and vandalism which we are not known for, will not happen again because Dominica is not known for this,”

      And the country has a right to know who incited violence and who instigated that plot. Those responsible will pay for their actions. That is what we do in any civilized country. If Skerrit did nothing about the rioting in Roseau, then you would have said the man does not care about the country with all that rioting and looting and vandalizing going on. Right? These guys need to find meaningful employment and stop instigating. They are wasting their time not finding productive work to do.

    Mr. PM, there is something drastically wrong with the conduct of what we claim to be police investigations. Is it steered by the DLP, DPP or who? Is it legal to conduct investigations by dragging 60 people against their will into the police station. What has happened to the rights of people. What has happened to the conduct of investigations outside the police station. Where are the written statements of evidence to be presented to court. What evidential ingredients are in those statements. If the investigations concern persons of the Government or opposition, why the Senior Investigating Officer is not of the rank of Superintendent (and up)

    Phase 2 – Meeting
    Phase 3 – Discussions

    After reading what Skeritt stated my critical thought process tells me that Skeritt has the backing of the Caricom heads of states and they have given him the go ahead to deal with what took place on the night of February 7 2017. I am of the opinion that the other Caricom heads of states do not want such irresponsible behavior to take place in their respective countries.

    • Shaka Zulu
      February 17, 2017

      The other heads of government don’t dictate what happens in another country. Only the laws and Constitution of that country. If he relies on other caricom heads it proves how week and insecure he is. Law enforcement and the order to arrest is also governed by laws and proceedure and can be illegal. There has to be evidence of a coup, investigated by independent body. All coup need money and guns non of which the opposition has. If the pm said opposition was on suicide mission I would more likely believe. Coup are conducted by military or powerful police who is against gov, or another MP who wants take over party. These are trumped up claims and other Caribbean leaders would be real dumb to believe. The decision to investigate should be based on laws of Dominica period, and by legal authority. Please re analyze your critical thought process.

I think he is giving the heads his own impression of the whole deal. His version of what is really going on. and off course who do you think they may think is more credible? The head of state? or the upstart opposition? Off course the head of state, which is why he has maybe convinced some to not entertain Linton. But i am sure a few will be curious enough to meet with the opposition leader. 2 sides to every story. a logical thinking person would want to hear both.

Why haven’t the police tested the shells of live bullets Skerrit said was fired at the police?

    Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has said that after meeting with CARICOM Heads in Guyana, he is convinced a thorough investigation is needed into the disturbances that took place in Roseau on the night of February 7.

    PM that took you by storm. Do you read the news of other countries, that when the higher powers are not listening to the lowly, but humble in heart, they rise and do things. This will indicate that the people are fed up and the authorities will take them serious. It is not a brush under the carpet protest.
    But my question is, where is the mouth of the Minister of National Security? Is it only you who are the mouthpiece of the country. Where are the other voices.

    Jesus gave up his life for the world, yet not even you see it fit to believe that. Carbon who is the COP does not see it fit to have a Superintendent, or Assistant Superintendent (if there is one) conduct investigations but allow a Corporal, (Not even a Sergeant or Inspector) prefer a charges.

Why is the red dragon behaving like this? 12:12 ” having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

    We already know which Dominican political leader is behaving like this “RED DRAGON” by his own political affiliation and all of us know why he behaving like that.

    “Skerrit also said that based on intelligence, one of the intentions of the leadership of the UWP “was to have the police shoot somebody dead in Roseau.” Have mercy on us. “They wanted somebody dead.” OMG, OMG! OMG!

    “After meeting with the Heads of Governments myself as a group and also those who approached me on a one on one, I am more fortified now than ever that there must be a thorough investigation into the disturbances of February 7,” he stated. So now its not police intelligence but heads of…

    This man is a blatant and dangerous liar!!!! It’s so sad that there are still Dominicans who support and believe in this man whose actions have disgraced and maligned our Country. There were 6 WEALTHY individuals who were either detained or arrested while being in possession of Dominica’s Diplomatic Passports. Prior to these arrests and detention many of these individuals were photographed in direct contact with Roosevelt Skerrit. And you’re telling me that there are still some Dominicans who don’t see that as HIGHLY suspicious? Now the latest scandal having to do with the arrest of Alireza Monfared revealed that Monfared was involved in evading and avoiding U.S. and U.N. sanctions against Iran, it further revealed the use of Dominican flagged oil tankers and the fact that Monfared was in Dominica AFTER the Government learned that he was “a person of interest”. My God! What more does Skerrit need to do before some people open their eyes???

      Now, Skerrit comes with a unreasonable and and idiotic false accusation that several unarmed individuals intended to rush, past the numerous armed policemen on the street, armed snipers in the building and on rooftops, into the Financial Building to seize his Office and remain there until their demands were met…and somehow some people actually believe it!!! I mean I’ve never seen or heard of Dominicans being willing to go on suicide missions that is surely doomed to fail even before it begins. Rushing the Financial Center Building against machine guns and sniper bullets? I don’t think so. Not to mention knowing that the riot squad is nearby with bullets and tear gas. It is amazing that some Dominicans would buy into that, like we don’t know each other and what we’re capable of. Any right-thinking Skerrit supporter who gives it any length of thought would have to admit that any Dominican who even thinks of this idea is crazy!

    Any leader with a brain would investigate. Only the UWP supporters do not think it should be investigated. In fact, their solution is that Skerrit should step down and Lennox be make PM. What a dream. They are now in Guyana embarrassing themselves, failing to realized that no right thinking government would support the overthrow of a duly elected government. Unfortunately for them, CARICOM all support the PM and his government so this is just a continued smear complain to destroy the country they say they love. Lennox’s leadership is being questioned even more at this time. Did anyone see Allen Chastanet, Lennox’s buddy? Let’s wait for Lennox tell us about that meeting :).

    BTW…. You are really trying hard to give the perception that other PMs of the region is supporting you 100 eh.

    Strangely however, none have released any statement and the statement released by CARICOM is a vague as comes.

    Remember we heard your SAD plight to round up support at CARICOM, talking about “…hostile international”….you fail to realize that majority of these islands’ economy is heavily dependent on international tourist. You honestly think these leaders will support you and your war on international agencies????

    THESE PMs CARE ABOUT THEIR COUNTRY AND THERE COUNTRY MEN.

    Skerrit you are ridiculous. You had no knowledge of the opposition’s visit to meet with Caricom leaders in Guyana but you know for sure that the the same opposition planned to cause chaos inn Roseau and to overthrow your government? I would be very happy for an inquiry but that must be carried out by an independent body. To have our discredited police, who take their instructions from you, to investigate themselves would be absurd and an exercise in futility (… a phrase gleaned from your legal counsel I believe). More and more you start to resemble Josef Stalin.

    This is laughable …… PM you need to make up your mind on what the exact plan of UWP and DFP protest was. You are starting to sound ridiculous! BTW all these utterance are based on “intelligence”, yet with all the those brought in for question only one was charged…and charged with obstruction. I swore by now they would be charged with what you have accused them with.

    PM you are become a laughing stock and your utterances are becoming those of a mad man. Truly disappointed in you.
