Ghonim is the husband of Miss Dominica 2012

The husband of former Miss Dominica, Nadira Lando, who was a business man in Antigua, was on Saturday May 23rd, 2015, extradited to the United States where he is wanted in connection with the murder of his former wife.

According to confirmed reports out of Antigua, Morrad Ghonim was removed from a flight on Wednesday May 20, 2015 by Antiguan police after US Marshalls arrived on the island with a warrant seeking his arrest and extradition to the United States on a  charge of first degree murder.

The matter was heard on Friday May 22, 2015 and Antigua’s chief magistrate granted the order to extradite. The following day, Ghonim was placed on a US bound flight, accompanied by US Marshalls.

Antigua media reported on Friday that Ghonim had been declared persona non grata by Cabinet after his home was searched by the police and they discovered that he had no work permit for the island; his last extension was in 2012 and he had remained in the country longer than the period granted by immigration.

According to the dictionary, a persona non grata is “a person who is unacceptable or unwelcome, especially to a foreign government.”

“Alongside the immigration and other issues, police say there were other ‘very grave concerns of National Security’ that came to the attention of the Commissioner of Police and the Immigration Department,” the Antigua Chronicle reported. “Upon recommendations, based on information received, the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda on Friday 22nd May 2015, in the interest of National Security, declared Morrad Modle Ghonim Persona Non Grata, and asked that Immigration Department take immediate action.”

Ghonim’s extradition to the US from Antigua comes in the wake of the March 12, 2015 conviction in California, USA, of 42 year-old Leon Martinez for “fatally shooting a 17-year-old mother while she was with her baby son and husband in a La Mirada park two decades ago.”

The husband was Morrad Ghonim.

A report published in the Match 13, 2015 edition of the San Gabriel Valley Tribune says that Martinez was re-tried after the first trial ended in a hung jury.

According to the report, in both trials, the prosecution presented evidence alleging that the victim’s husband hatched the murder-for-hire plot. Read more.

Ghonim, the owner of “Ayoushe Beauty Supplies Ltd’ in Antigua, married Lando, who was Miss Dominica 2012, in 2014.

    The best comment I have seen so far regarding this, is on FACEbook. Some Dominicans try to friend a lady who is writing like she has all the inside scoop on the situation. Boy did she put them in their place. She wrote “All Dominicans trying to friend me I am not looking for friends. Stop sending me friend request”. Boy I was so happy to see that. Dominicans too fass and up and cannot support their own. I am not saying the man is innocent, I am not saying is Dominicans that started the story. All I am saying is in this case it is better not to comment than trying to push the young lady deeper in the quick sand. Old people say when your neighbor house on fire pour water on yours. Dominica, allow me to sound the alarm: Your neighbor house is on fire, Please take care of your own!

    So all you sharks who would eat up one another, even your own should think again and let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Don’t forget when you point one finger there are many more pointing at you. Be of good good courage miss Lando, hold your head up for this too shall pass.

    After reading some of the comments from the link lucy posted am strongly convinced Dominicans or I should say the haters have cursed the young lady and their negativity made caused her fairytale to be terminated
    I am uphold at how cruel and vicious you people can be.wish ill from the very beginning of her life her and significant other.the negative comments flew like swords against her her life.you losers can’t help yourselves.you indulge in sex and have kids with different men un married miserable broke.well you had a choice to determine your Destiny.don’t hate because a young woman was smart enough to choice wisely.the universe is not ours to control.this was his it had nothing to do with her.besides it was decades ago.also you shallow women I am sure some of you just slept with another man besides your partner for less or even nothing.the young men get a job drive nice car start a business.get the hell out of mama’s house and then maybe only maybe open your mouth and talk.

    Who really knows what motivates one person to marry another? All I know is that I would not wish for anyone to happen to them what happened to this young woman. That can not be a pleasant experience. Let God be the judge, that is what He is there for.

    Parliament to open on Wednesday with the PM proposing changes to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Dominica among other significant changes receives 18 comments on DNO! Story on someone personal life receives over 100 vile, vicious, comments spewing out hate and jealousy towards a very beautiful and successful carnival queen, whose husband is presumed to be on the wrong side of the law. He has not yet been to court to be tried for any crime but the Dominican Court of Marlparlay already finds him and by default her, guilty! Remember when you point that finger, four other fingers pointing right back at you!

      expressing one’s point of view does not constitute jealousy. Winning queen and marrying a man with money to me is not success. I am pretty sure she was not sleeping well at night especially with his womanizing ways. Just ask the many young girls who worked for him and smiling in her face, while I’m sipping my tea

      Truth to be Told, its reality, and they are Public figure. This happens all over the world and its nothing new so why you think people do not have the write to comment. They have a right to but not in a vindictive way. We can’t dispute the fact that that they were a happy couple posting their live story via Social media so now no one can be blamed for commenting on their personal lives. They in the first place had there personal business out there. That is why we must be careful of Social Media. Its so funny how persons want to post every event in their lives for the world to see and when it backfire thay are mad and critize the world.

      @ Just Blaze, come out form behind that MASK! why do i get the impression from your post that this same Man jilted you in Antigua? are you for real. if not i suggest you come out behind this pic. how dare you judge the young lady this way. from the ratio from any country or island, i want to believe you are not bred and born in the Caribbean islands, and if you are, from statistics, Caucasian young women are WORST and DO WORST than this young lady. how many of them travel and run away with men they meet for 1 hr/less at a bar and have never heard from them since. staggering drunkards vanish in thin air kaboom!!!!!!!!!!!!! gone in the wind. their relatives are left with just memories of whats left in their room. how to you arrive at your “VAIN YOUNG LADY”?????????? do you know NADIRA???????????? how dare you WOMAN to even. if Dominicans want to bash at their very own its up to them but i wont allow you to speak such to my fellow Dominican.

      If that man was from dominica you would still yakity yakity yak….all of you are jealous of that young women and are happy to know that her husband is in such a situation ,we can all be in or be part of serious life issues,men have killed women in dominica many times,many men bit their wives or girl friends in dominica all the time.Our dominican men travel and commit crimes and come back to dominica,some kill ,rape and steal overseas ,,i personally know of someone who killed in st.thomas who lives now in dominica,,what about if he marrys a woman or have a girl friend,are we going to criticise her or laugh at her if one day the gov’t from where he did the crime gets him arrested,,i am from dominica,i can tell you that most dominican men treat women even worst than slaves and some dogs,maybe 80 yrs ago they were good men but not now the majority and not , most women are the ones taking care of their kids,he guy could be from dominica and the woman from antigua,you are shallow minded…

  18. May 26, 2015

    everyone is so concerned about miss queeny…. ok then we all get it. i pray for her and hope all goes well with her. but did anyone stop to think of the kids that are involved???? there are young freaking kids involved did anyone think of them? everyone is just going on and on about miss lando let it be good or bad. she is a grown woman am sure she cant take care of her self and with the support i know she is getting now she will be fine. did anyone say a prayer for the kids? on every social network and news report am reading the comments and if its not about the man its about nadira. ever since she won queen i knew it got to her she did turn up her noise on pple that were her friends, then comes her cinderella story of prince charming, i still cant figure out if they fell in love or walked in love cause that time frame is still a mystery to me. BUT that aint my business. they wanted the publicity to here it is good or bad. this could happen to any one am not rejoicing i feel for her.

    This is for all the mentally deranged young women walking around town. I say mentally deranged because sleeping with a prominent person does not make you prominent, sleeping with a rich person does not make you rich unless he marries you, make you his wife and shares his wealth with you. For if you assume prominence and wealth, the strippers and the prostitutes can assume same.

    Young women develop yourselves and then look for a mate of your stature. There is a new wave of finding relationships sweeping our shores as we as a society becomes more and more materialistic in a very shallow manner. With this bling bling life style I can only imagine that this is just one of many stories that will greet our ears as time elapses.

    I have questions, there was a mistrial and this fellow a Dominican visiting a Caricom member country was declared a person non Grata. This term only applies to a person who has diplomatic immunity in a foreign country. The guy was in a Caricom member country, how could he be a person non grata violating the Caricom member agreement for skill labor? The the judge over reach violating the Caricom court agreement. The extradition request was suppose to be made to Dominica, who could have agreed upon written consent of the fellow and his attorneys to have the extradition hearing held in Antigua. His right were violated as proper procedure were followed. Suppose we were to have an extradition hearing for an American in without proper procedures, would they grant that extradition as we did here?

    I just reread the post on their wedding and paid special attention to the ones of “Simply the Truth”. This person had alot to say and it was interpreted as jealousy, bitter and negative. He/she was actually alerting us for this. This person knew exactly what he/she was talking about.

    I am very sadden for the young lady. Anyone could have been in this situation. I have realised men only let us know what they want us to know. In her case she could never have found out. I am sure he wouldn’t have introduced her to this part of his life. Many of us get married and in serious relationships for years and later finds out the true person who we are with.

    Let us be supportive to the young lady, is the man we should be condemning.

    A lesson for all of us, what happens in the dark will one day come to light no matter how long it takes, so let’s try to live our lives to the best and be upfront with our partners.

      Thank you very much! You have great insight. God bless you!
      This is the name I used last year. I now use another name. DNO can vouch for it and knows my IP.
      When I read about this man on DNO, I reverted to the previous article of his and Nadira’s wedding and read a few of my comments and their reply. They do not even know me. They lack intelligence.
      How could anyone be envious, jealous, etc. of others whom they do not know and when they also reside far away? This is the type of poor mentality they have. They still have not changed.
      Some of us have a sixth sense. We can think and see beyond. Intelligence adds to it. All gifts from God. :)
      I felt suspicious about the man and see what occurred. The man had a hidden past life.
      You will note my responses in support of Nadira and how sad I feel. This should indicate to them, if they recall what I stated and their response, that I made no negative comments about her as some of them did. I pray for her.

    I was in this trial back in March in Norwalk, CA. It was very sad to hear that a man would have his wife killed for $500. I saw all the evidence and I do believe that Morrad paid off the gunman. It is now up to a jury to decide. The US justice system is one of the best in the world but money can buy really good lawyers. It should be interesting if he will dodge the bullet again.

    • The Facts
      May 27, 2015

      When these articles are read especially of innocent people being killed and a young person at that, I contemplate on it. The poor 17-year old wife and mother saying to the man, “Don’t kill my baby.” I felt I was right there witnessing this sad scene. I thought of her and prayed that God had mercy on her soul.
      I also thought of Nadira that she was a baby when all this occurred. Amazing how people’s lives could cross and far away in the West Indies.
      He paid the man pittance to kill her. He was stupid to agree to kill her. Money, even a small amount will make some people commit atrocious crimes. I hear and read of cases, how much people are offered to do that. Will not mention the amount.
      I think of how saddened Nadira is and what she is presently undergoing. I expect she has immense support of her family and friends. God grant her peace of heart and mind to cope.
      We will hear and read about the court process. DNO will always keep us informed. :lol:

    Jealousy is a monster that kills. Mrs. Ghonim, (Nadira Lando) will be quite fine even after this troubling ordeal. The fact is that the alleged crime of Mr. Ghonim has yet to be proven in Court. Hence, it is still just an allegation and he may well be found innocent. For those reveling in the misfortune of our former beauty queen and representative, your envy, jealousy and grudging hearts will not allow you to progress and reach anywhere close to the achievements of this beautiful Dominican lady. Mrs. Ghonim (Lando) continues to be wealthy and beautiful, very much in love and supportive of her dear husband during this unfortunate event. Those of you who wish to berate and criticize the young lady must not have any lives of your own. Nadira did nothing wrong, so why lay your criticisms at her feet? Trying to bring her down to your level? Well, it’s not going to happen. Nadira will NEVER be poor and desperate like you EVER again!!!! Put that in your pipes please…THANX

      Consider too his expenditures and liabilities. He has the beauty supply store in Antigua. How much he owes on the supplies and other expenses? These have to be paid including his lawyer’s fees. He may have more than one. He may have other liabilities in the US. After everything is paid, what will be left?

We are such a hypocritical Nation, we just love to put people down and rejoice at their demise. Karma is a bitch for hers infront and puts behind. She is young and This too shall come to past. All you the condemning her for marrying a foreigner, an Arab. Tell me isn’t the Astaphans, Raffouls, Nassief, Karams all Arabuc descendants and started off as foreigners in Dominica.

    There are many fairy tales that most of are familiar with, such as Cinderella whose feet fitted the glass slipper of the prince ultimately proving that she was his true love and Snow White who could only have been awakened by the kiss of her true love. These are fairy tales that of course ended with the princess and the prince living happily ever after.

    It may be the popular opinion that fairy tale meetings and love stories are only uniquely found in books, but contrary to that belief, Antigua and Dominica has been graced with the unfolding saga of a fairy tale like union unlike any other.

    On this note, the nuptials between Morrad Ghonim, affectionately known as Mr. Ayoushe and Ms. Nadira Lando, former Dominican local and regional queen, has been announced.

    The happy couple finally tied the knot after a one year courtship.

    How was he able to have a business in A/gua without a permit? The government is lax to have allowed it. How could he have got away with it?
    Did he ever apply for a permit or landed status and was refused?
    Did he not consider that his past would catch up with him someday?
    Nadira is young and trusting and took him at face value and that he truly loved her. I visualize how shocking it is for her to experience this.
    How many women he married during that 20-year span and/or earlier?
    It is said, “God protects us from something worst than death.” Some are not aware of that. In her disappointment and sadness, Nadira is spared the worst. After all is said and done, console yourself.

      Facts, that is another ridiculous question: Do you believe that the FBI, Interpol, and the local police in America are like those people in Dominica who calls themselves CID, and police?

      bin Laden hid for many years, however in a in less than an hour he was found and executed. These are not the days when people used to commit crime and run from place to place, The law in America will find you no matter where you are hiding, as long as the criminals are breathing oxygen, the means are there to isolate and capture them.

      I am a nobody; but trust me, if I wish to find you, I can do it quite easily, and show up on your doorsteps! There is always a paper trail, if I want to know the date and time you arrived in Canada, and all you done there for the years residing there, never mind the America FBI and International Police (Interpol).

      The CIA probably kept track of him from the day he left America.

      British Scot Land Yard, same thing, and you do not want the Israeli intelligence…

    Something is very puzzling to me; some people are of the opinion that the Dominica beauty may have married him for financial gain. As far as I am concern, that guy is a nobody; he is a mere gang-banger as they are term here.

    The killing might be gang initiation related; sometimes they kill to get into the gangs okay; what happened he deceived the woman, that sort of thing happens all over the world, including the United States.

    The environment he is from is riddled with gangs!

    Now, been a hired gun does not mean, he got paid a million dollars to commit a triple murder. There are Hispanics like him who will kill someone for less than five hundred dollars you see. Just because the color of his skin is yellow, does not mean he is rich! A wine-o will accept a three dollar bottle of wine to kill someone here! And I am talking about California where I reside.

    God has found a way to protect Nadira and she should count her blessings as she still has life, at 17 this first wife was really innocent, just what he saw in Nadira, So it was easy to entice her into his glamorous world as she was raised with little.

    Now she has the memories of the fairy tail wedding to live with. Out of greed and want of worldly treasures we marry for money and material gains not for love.

    This might be news in the Caribbean, but it’s everyday life in the US. The popular show: Who the blip did I marry will give some insight about deception. It happens everyday.

    It’s sad that so many people are celebrating the downfall of this young lady. Given an opportunity, they will marry up and to someone with means, instead of a pauper. It’s the way of life. Who in Dominica wants to be poor?

      Not only people of means deceive the poor; poor also lie and deceive the poor: i.e.; this young lady met a guy, he told her he is a professional motor mechanic. From the day I met them the he never work.

      One of the young lady’s cousins had a baby shower; I was invited, her husband was there also. Two young boys got into a confrontation, her husband decided to coach one of the kid how to hurt the other. I told him that was wrong; as we continue to speak about it the supposed mechanic, told me, “nobody put their hands on me;” that is why I had to kill two, or I think is three of them!”

      I almost jump out of my skin, so I ask the young lady mother why did you allow your daughter to marry a murder? The mother brook into cold sweet, she did not believe me; anyway she asked her daughter if it is true.

      Her daughter informed her; three years after they were married, the guy sister asks her if she knows her brother spent most of his life in jail for the murder of the people he…

      Antigua must be buzzing with this news.
      Have you viewed American Justice? This is another one. How about the US TV Court Cases? Whenever we hear and read of such matters, it is always shocking. It is worst for those who are affected for as the saying, “Never in their wildest dreams” they ever expected these things to happen to them. This one is a typical case.
      I am certain she did not set out to catch him or married him for his money. It so happened that they met and he married her.
      He appears to love younger women. Imagine marrying a 17-year old which was the age of the former wife. He knows how many former wives he had.
      I think of her and what she may be going through and do feel sorry for her. The shock and embarrassment and that her dream marriage is finished. It is like a loved one who died. Those who have compassionate hearts will feel this way.
      May God assist her and strengthen her to cope with this dilemma which is thrust upon her.

( but mark you if his bank account didnt have a few zeros they would never love him) . When you 18-20 and you get a man that 40-50 that live his life what you expect. Why not get a guy 18-22 like you and you’ll grow and build your wealth together? But no, you’ll want a man that can immediately buy you a car and travel the world every weekend.

      Are all 18-20 year men caring, responsible, reliable and ambitious?

      Men, at whatever age have been cheated by women.
      Women, at whatever age have been cheated by men All vice versa.

I got a full ride on who Miss Lando was…she acted like she was better than everyone, that she never sinned, that she was more educated, that she was perfect, and she had all the love in the world. You stuffed the internet with how in love you were, so don’t be mad when the internet decides to reveal everything that hid behinds those smiles and perfect life photos.

      Be broadminded, understanding and compassionate. Place yourself in her situation. You cannot blame her for what the man did. She had no say in that matter. She must have been a baby when he married the 17-year old and this happened to her.
      If he had not done what he did, he would have been still in Antigua and with his wife. So how can you place the blame on what occurred to her? Even though at this time she is, no doubt grieving, who knows, sooner or later, she could have fallen prey to this man’s whims and wiles. A few years from now, he probably would be seeking a younger woman.
      In her anguish and tears, I hope someone will console her with that. She is old enough to comprehend. God protected her.

        Apparently you can’t read and the first thing that someone ignorant would say is that someone is jealous. People tend to get uneasy when truth is revealed.. I simply said, from the start something wasn’t right. What can a 40-50 year old offer a 19-22 year old? How mature is a 19-22 year old for such big decision? Money and traveling and all the finer things in life are like bait to our generation. Older people would know better.

        One of us? She sure didn’t act like it. I stated clearly her “fresh” ways..acting like she was more than the country life…that she ascended above us because she thought she had everything together and everything she wanted. Karma is just a reminder house fast our high horse can collapse.

        Jealous people don’t ask God to bless the people they are jealous of. So before you hit me with the jealousy trip, read before you speak. I admitted I wouldn’t want to be in the situation and I do feel sorry for her…but that’s life…that’s how we learn.

She told me of a man she met at one of those Christian churches. They were serious enough that they planned to get married. She found out he had many women and told me he joined the church to meet women. Of course, she ceased seeing him.
      As God is above and looking down and in, people who use Christianity of all to deceive people will not fare well as they age and when they die.
      Read The Book of Revelation: ” Do not close this Book. Let the good continue to do good and the evil continue to do evil. . . . As for the deceivers of every sort, they will be out there with the dogs. . .”

      Did she really do what you stated? Some people could have wild imaginings. What they think is so is not usually so.
      It appears you have held a grudge towards her for a long time. Are you a Christian? Never wish people harm. This applies to Christians and non-Christians alike.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay” also said: “The reproaches, insults of those who do to you fall on Me.”
      Why did He state that? As God who suffered and died for us that we might live in His Glorious Eternal Kingdom. He taught us to love others, even our enemies, to do good to those who hate us and to forgive.
      Reason also, He knows none of us are perfect in whatever manner. He also said, “Unless you forgive from the heart, neither will My (your) Heavenly forgive you.”
      Speak the truth. However, ask God in prayer to mellow your heart, for a compassionate one and pray for Nadira. He knows how much she is in dire need of prayers, the poor girl/lady.

Many are happy to read this and use it as a weapon to destroy the young lady, but it is not happening. Her family, particularly, her mom will be by her side through thick and thin.

Some one in charge was obviously quite happy with this situation and the reason why this guy has lasted so long as a ‘business’ owner. Now that the US is arresting him the ninconpoops in our Police Force are suddenly making a move on him. If the US had not gotten involved this guy would still be happily running his business.

      You are Stupes indeed. All this is uncalled for. You are assuming that she married for popularity and wealth.
      Do you think it would have made a difference if she knew him for years prior to marrying him? The man is who he is. He could have been the one who was always after her. He met a beautiful young lady and he could not resist her. Look at it in this manner instead of the other way which may be wrong.

    Oh well. A little research on his character before the marriage could have helped.

    • The Facts
      May 25, 2015

      How do you measure love and true love? When people are in love do you think they consider conducting a research on the other person? I could understand that if he gave her problems which made it cause for performing a research on him.
      I can see this occurring if the other party married for material possessions and wealth. Even then some women would not care about conducting a research.

  83. The Facts
    May 24, 2015

    I felt there was something fishy and insincere about him.
    He only had a permit which expired; not landed status. Yet, he was allowed to open a store and conduct business in A/gua, to the point of being popular and a sponsor for events. Was the store registered in his name?
    I find it strange that the Antiguan government was not suspicious of this man. Only now they found out? It appears his crime is atrocious, a serious one, if not more. Is he a fugitive?
    When she got married, the comments of D/cans were not without reason. Note what we have read about him so far.
    She must be shocked at the turn of events. The person to feel sorry for is Nadira. Her fairy-tale courtship and wedding were a show on his part. He knows how to court a woman and make her feel good as if she is the only woman in the world. He may be a bigamist. I hope he treated her well.
    I wonder, will she return to D/ca and consider pursuing the four-year scholarship she received?

      The Facts,
      You are always the first to admonish Dominicans for stating unpleasant facts about the Labour Party and Skeritt. You mount your high horse to quote the bible etc when Dominicahs voice their displeasure about the labour party’s failure to address the ongoing problems in Dominica, but there you are criticising and judging this man.

      The facts you are a damn myopic hypocrite.

        Your comment here is out of place. Having read about him, I hope you apologize. You are the one who is a hypocrite.
        Since you mentioned it, you must cease your consistent charade against the PM and his government. One, it is not nice. Two the Lord is not pleased with you for consistently denigrating his name. The more you do, the more miserable you will be for what goes around comes around. People reap what they sow two-fold.
        Are you perfect? What good it does to constantly criticize the PM who is elected for another five years? Wait for the next election. If you are alive, then will you have all the time to make such comments.
        You know nothing about Holy Scripture. Otherwise you would comprehend what I stated.
        I had my reservations about this man. Now you see? I was not wrong and so do many other Dominicans. Cease falsely accusing others of what they are not guilty of. :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen:

      Capital punishment is a crime committed against the country. Murder is one of them. Another one is treason. These are serious offenses against one’s country.

    On a more serious note..

    The guy is married to a dominican/caricom national..doesnt ththat make him a dominican/ caricom citizen? Why does he still have toappl for work permit etc..

    It is alleged that this guy has swindled peoples investments…some time late last year i remember there was some robery at his home where alot of expensive jewellery was stolen among other things..did this guy kno us feds were onto him? was this alleged robery staged to hide some of his asset???after all, we know what happened to stanford..all assets were frozen…
