Linton gives Financial Secretary until August 14 to provide information on CBI funds

Linton speaking at UWP news conference of August 7

Opposition Leader and Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Lennox Linton, has written to the Financial Secretary (FS) Rosemund Edwards seeking information on the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme CBI funds as controversy over that matter, mounts.

​Speaking during his response to the 2019-2020 National Budget presentation of the Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Roosevelt Skerrit in parliament last week, Linton told Parliament, that 226 million dollars was presented to the house in the budget, which according to him, is “180.6 million dollars less than the budgeted amount of 406.6 million dollars presented in the original estimates.”

“This is a 44% difference in balance when one takes into consideration that 3,961 persons received Dominican citizenship, who may have paid an average of US $50,000, during a 5-month period…the projected CBI income for 2018-2019 should likely have been some EC$1.291 billion,” Linton said.

He said these figures amount to over a billion dollars that’s unaccounted for.

At a United Workers Party (UWP) press conference Linton said, “Today, (August 7, 2019), as chairman of the Public’s Accounts Committee, I have written to the Financial Secretary asking for the information as follows: the number of citizenships approved for the three-year period [the last three financial years ended June 30, 2019] broken down by year, broken down by economic development fund, real estate, and any other citizenship access option.”

He continued, “The amount of money paid for the approved citizenships, broken down by Economic Development Fund, Real Estate and any other citizenship access option. Also, receipts, disbursements and year end balances for special funds, trust funds, escrow accounts and other funds or accounts operating with money derived from and connected to the Citizenship by Investment Programme (CBI).”

Linton said that he does not envisage encountering any difficulties from the FS in obtaining the requested information and has given a time line of August 14, 2019 to get the information so requested.

“The FS is minded to comply with legitimate request for information that has to do with her responsibility for accounting and managing of the funds placed under her trust as a public officer of the State. I sincerely hope that no public officer is of the mind to be obstructionist where the provision of information where this important information is concerned,” he advised. “We have given a timeline of August 14, 2019 to get the requested information.”

    I know there are many ignorant people in Dominica following Lennox Linton, with his lack of knowledge or information he acted in ignorance of basic procedures! Without any proof of evidence millions of dollars gone missing from the treasury this guy is well and utterly sick to the maximum also his followers are just as stupid idiotic mentally lots running away with that stupid gutter story. It’s time Mr Skerrit takes out a lawsuit against this arrogant opposition so-called leader he will never learn to pick his words in a rightful manner, having said that Linton is sell by date now late 60s into 70 still cannot learned, my God what man??

    The United Nations and INTERPOL need to conduct an investigation of yours truly the self appointed minister of finance to see where and what he did with all the missing Dominican treasury money. They need to start in Florida with the mansion he owns and his overseas bank accounts. He needs to account for all monies including the millions in USD that was donated to Dominica after hurricane Maria.

    Linton is never interested in Social Justice because he shows more attributes of a desperate mashuper.
    He wants to mashup the CBI programme because he realize that with it the government will have a source of Capital Revenue to fulfil political promises. So he and his gang has no chance to get into power. His performance on CNN to discredit the CBI is evidence of his intentionS. He knows with all that publicity the competition will be gunning for us. He knows that they can take it away from small players like us like they took sugar and bananas from the entire Caribbean. So Linton is acting as an agent of distruction just like the agents of Chikita Bananas. Remember when those type off agents find a way to black list and de-risk small economies like Dominica that does not even have a Central Bank and their dollar pegged to the USA $. Just think of the massive depression that would MASHUP our purchasing power if our dollar had no US dollar support. MASHUP TIME AGAIN.

    Its unbelievable that after such BOMBSHELL allegations and important request for pertinent documents from those responsible for our passport monies we are still waiting for answers. I am totally disturbed that;

    1. Skerrit took an additional 30 minutes to complete his budget presentation but still gave no credible answer to the question; WHERE DE MONEY GONE?
    2. After Skerrit spent two hours addressing his base still no answer on; WHERE THE MONEY GONE?
    3. The website we were directed to by government apologists has been TAKEN DOWN for so-called maintenance
    4. The FS has proceeded on vacation leave without providing the requested documents explaining; WHERE DE MONEY GONE?
    5. Skerrit still has not resigned
    6. Dcans are not yet in the streets demanding Skerrit resignation
    7. The Police CHIEF has not announced an investigation into; WHERE OUR MONEY GONE?

    I therefore ask again; UNCLE, WAYY DE MONEY GONEEEE :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: ? Tic toc, tic toc, tic toc!

  5. 5 more years of misery?
    August 9, 2019

    Dominica has at least $1,000,000,000 (1 billion dollars) unaccounted for and this is the condition of our hospitals, health centres, police stations and schools, terrible, bad, horrible and poor. Under these working conditions, no salary increases for nurses, police or teachers. What are we going to do about this? Skerrit does not care about us, all now so Skerrit is building his 5-star mansion at Morne Daniel while he’s chilling in the state palace. He’s giving away cash like he’s a billionare. 8-O with who’s billions? If his family get sick they will be immediately jetted off to the best hospitals overseas. Our hospital is not high enough standard for them. He has his own private police force, for him, the regular police can rot in the dirty, stinking, rat infested stations. Skerrit is an evil man. We must pray, for God to unbind the minds and open the eyes of those still enchanted by him. This cannot be a natural thing, for people to still be talking about 5 more years.

      Anon tell them trouble makers that the money is in the Cosoledated Fund which is being accounted for in the Estimates as presented in the House of Assembly. This new slogan of the uwp “show me the money” will not stress the government in anyway. Remember recently it was “Skerrit must go” but who went . Dr Fontaine and Joseph Isaac. So guess who will embarrass themselves with “show me the money.”
      The use of money as calls to plunder like greedy pirates indicate that the unreasonable wicked people (uwp) are just greedy for money and power and will do and say anything to incite mob violence to meet their goals. Those people are taking a page out of Trump playbook re immigrants for sure, only difference is that the uwp meanest and nastiness is directed at their own fellow Dominicans. How can one hate their own people so much.

    Lennox Linton made many trips to the USA collecting monies for Dominica, those monies were collected on our behalf; to date, Lennox is yet to tell us WHERE THE MONIES HE COLLECTED GONE.
    Linton where is the money you collected on our behalf and how much did you put in your account?
    Everyone saw the BIG BLUE BOX that was passing around collecting CASH and CHEQUES. We want to know where is the MONEY!?

He is always demanding transparency and accountability which he never practice. He never called press conferences on this, double standard duplicity…I think.

      Your comparing a donation box which had maybe a couple of thousand of dollars – if that to billion(s) of $$$ not going into the Treasury? All younnot serious Garcon!
      Yet your PM has a shortfall of over 1 billion EC$, which he has now admitted.
      Your spinning, deflection and distraction will not erase what is happening in Dominica. Possibly one of the biggest financialmscandals in Caribbean history.

      Mr Skerrit needs to sign his resignation slip, and the citizens of Dominica need to bring in a neutral forensic accountant(s) to find out:
      WHERE DE MONEY, UNCLE?
      That is my money, my children’s money, my husbands money, my family’s money…

  9. August 9, 2019

    Heaven help us all if the UWP EVER get control of government. The ignorance of the UWP and its supporters is frightening. Simple, the government of Dominica does not get 50K USD per applicant when families are factored in, this information is on the government website. So for Mr. Linton to use 50K without first establishing the fee actually paid by the applicants is misleading. To add insult to injury Mr. Linton is now making demands for information from the Financial secretary in his capacity as chairman of the Public Accounts committee without first convening a meeting the committee, it appears that the committee is now a one man committee this is very DICTATORIAL.

      Anon, you have a lot of explaining and defending to do. Some of you DLP supporters sit on your brain. Your brain is not in your head but is located in some other part of your body. Stop sitting on your brain and become intellectually curious. Seems very obvious to me that you love Skerrit more than you love yourself. It’s apparently clear that a full accounting of the CBI monies has fallen well short. What will be good is an independent forensic examination of the CBI accounts. That will help to dispel all doubts. Anytime a government stubbornly refuses to be transparent that’s a RED FLAG, corruption abounds.

    August 9, 2019

    It’s Amazing to really witness how Bias people are towards Politics, like a PM can do no wrong in their eyes. No one is above the law and the country money should be handled with integrity and transparency. Such leadership comes with great responsibility and generations to come deserves opportunities. It’s a shame to see other islands being developed and Dominicans have to migrate for survival when so many resources are going to waste. We need to PUT COUNTRY FIRST, and NOT PARTY. Dominica deserves better and all its people. We must realize that one man cannot run office forever, one must lead and one must follow, but with such corruption it sets a really bad tone for the next person. It’s time for new leadership, new ideas, and making use of the unlimited resources available to us.

      Cool, your comments are real cool. I can detect that your written words come from deep within your soul and are sincere. Why so many people are so mortally afraid of the truth is mind boggling. Corruption adversely affects the development of a country and severely lowers the standard of living of the inhabitants. Dominica is a perfect example of this. What are the reasons that neighboring countries of fewer natural resources are far ahead of Dominica in standard of living, infrastructural development, minimum wage and most other things. Your sentiments are spot on.

    Thank you, Mr. Linton, for bringing to the public the light that there are $1.2 billion dollars not accounted for in the sale of passports. The spin doctors didn’t even know what this one-man government is doing with the people’s money. Keep holding the administration’s feet to the fire so there can be knowledge of where the money went. Great job, Sir.

They think they can use fear and shame to intimate the red nation, but we are in the majority. They are already shouting boots on the ground, so just wait let them throw their verbal stones. The day they throw their first real stone they will be taught that it will not be like May29, 1979 or D-Day on February 17, 2017. Just you wait. Every law every tradition say self defense is not a crime. So do not throw the first stone.
      We know they are cowards who will run and hide when the going gets tough like they did for Maria. Cowards and bullies are experts at provocation, but we can beat each of them with one hand tied behind us. So let them talk , Let them continue to try to make us lose our self control and become angry.
      They think we are all “too nice” like Skerro, but we are ready if attacked again.

    This simple question “Where de money gone” is causing havoc, nightmares, headaches and spells trouble for the Skerrit led DLP concoction of corrupt gluttons. Where are the bona fide journalists and Dominicans of influence to dig deep into this issue to unearth the truth? This should not be left up entirely to Mr. Linton alone to extract the facts. The entire country needs real answers. The vilification of Mr. Linton, the messenger, doesn’t solve anything. This question has generated so much noise from the DLP supporters. The dog that gets hit hollers.

    i have an open question for Attorney Anthony Astaphan, SC, in his capacity as a experienced lawyer and DLP activist and advocate.

    Sir can you define for public information the meaning of misfeasance and malfeasance in the context of managing the Citizenship By Investment (CBI) Program and the public funds received therefrom?

    Sir can you also explain the meaning of accountability, transparency, public trust, honesty in public office, integrity in public office, patriotism, truthfulness and confidence in public affairs in the context of managing the Citizenship By Investment (CBI) Program and the public funds received therefrom?

    This one is for Accountant Clarence Christian;

    Sir can you rework the math regarding the public funds purported to have been received through the CBI program and give the public an honest response and at the same time refuting the pronouncements of the Leader of the Opposition, Honorable Lennox Linton.

      Hidden threats and demand not one of them. Tony will ignore you posing as a labouleft and the FS will ignore Linton posing as a demanded of blackmail. They do not even have to give explanation to anyone, certainly not to you or Linton. What will linton do loot the FS or Tony’s property like was done to DLP supporters’ property in 1979 and 2017. In both cases 3 property were looted. Then all hell broke loose with looting re David in 1979 and Maria 2017. Are you guys planning a third strike by pretending you all have a real issue? I thought Electoral reform without constitutional reform was going to be the issue that would give uwp hope for their “IF” campaign. So that will not work so a new issue is assumed.

    Linton said that he does not envisage encountering any difficulties from the FS in obtaining the requested information and has given a time line of August 14, 2019 to get the information so requested–News article

    Linton you do not envisage encountering any difficulties from the FS, and yet your request is “quite rude” giving her a date to surrender to your command. And so what, if she doesn’t?

    You have done that so many times before, and every time those commands fall on death ears. Now you are at it again. Why do you think that the FS will adhere to your rude command is beyond my understanding.

Sometimes I wonder what is wrong with some of us Dcans. You mean to say we as a nation is prepared to sacrifice everything to protect a one man rouge cabinet/ regime?

    Well let me thank Mr. Linton for such a discovery where it seriously appears that passport monies are being stolen by someone/ people and they need to be held accountable. If no satisfactory answers by the 14th of August then I am prepared to join the MASSIVE demonstration until the government resigns in disgrace.

The name of the new prison should be called “Climate change” or First Climate change Jail in the whole world

As for going to jail, pay attention for what you are wishing for others because your own curse may fall on you and your yours.

      @TG I’m sorry but Dominica does not need an election now neither should an election be held. The PM should either clear the air or resign. If he fails to do any of the above then the President should suspend the house and immediately call for an independent inquiry. If the president fails to do that then our police should stay home, our nurses, port workers, teachers, and everyone should stay home until we get this situation resolved.. I am a RED Pastor but country comes before partisan politics. We need to get this resolved immediately so that no one else thinks they can do what they want without giving account. As a pastor the concept and principle of accountability is well taught in the bible. We see it in Acts 5 when Ananias and Sapphira had to give account of the sale of their own possession. Unless PM gives account to the people I CANNOT preach from acts 5 with authority again and neither should any red preacher!

        If you are a different imposter could you give please guiding facts, procedures and state the relevant laws to back up your statement, and to give Linton some justifications for his actions. If you cant do that it means that you are just doing the usual “blue bubble blowing” with plenty of desperate sound and fury signifying nothing.

    Accountability and Transparency goes together and is helpful that any government dealing with states money, The Peoples Money must be seen to be accountable. In particular Dominica where we do not trust this failed highly corrupted labour Government under the failed leadership of immature , incompetent Skerrit. Dominica’s government and governance and led by the Cabinet with Prime Minister is a failure and this Labour government and Odd Minster have failed us.
    Dominicans please wake up and be prepared to kick Skerrit and his failed corrupt Labour Government out of our parliament – Government. They have failed us. Skerrit is a failure.

Income streams is to receive thru taxes, grants, loans etc (not shaking a tree) , Expenditure is spending for vaious projects , office suplies, hospital expenses, various ministries etc, roads etc, Public welfare assistance and many more. But where I be there? Where are the intellects like Francisco, Ibo france etc (you alll seem to know it all) . The people need a crash course on various ministries and what is a budget.

      @ ???????????,….They are not foolish just up to no good. They want to create an issue for mob response to make trouble. They are trying to implant in peoples mind that the DLP stole their money to create an angry mob. Remember D-Day, February 17, 2017. What was the accusation, what was the fake issue, no one seems to remember but they “demanded” that the DLP government depart in 14 days. Remember the hola re electoral reform, that is set aside, the new voice is “where is our money.” There palms are itching so more “demands,” this time for money. Incitement of violence is a foot . Looters will be highly motivated to grab everything in sight because they are led by their greed for money. Money is a powerful motivator and greed for it is mind controlling. Linton has proven he can manipulate the minds of some people even those with the highest education.

      St. Joe, I often asked myself the very same questions. Dominicans are unique. The corruption in government, their ruinous policies, their lies and deception, their worthless promises are negatively impacting on the quality of life of most citizens. Yet the majority of residents remain deafeningly quiet. When the population remains indifferent, passive and apathetic, wicked and unscrupulous politicians plunder the country for themselves and stifle the rights of the people. In the face of all these acts of corruption by the incumbent administration eith so many people struggling mightily, Dominicans remain passive. This lethargy defies common sense. It’s no wonder Skerrit feels comfortable calling his fellow citizens stale soup and old buggy. Who can’t hear will feel.

Dominica’s passports have been sold and Billion$$ have been made, and we are still languishing in poverty without the basics in health care and educational facilities.
    If one listened to the apologists , you will think that Skerroo became P.M after Hurricane Maria, but he has been there for 20 years , chasing businesses away from Da and selling everything that we once owned while keeping the money in overseas accounts. How can a conscious Dominica still support S.F.P?

      Mr Linton did not quote the relevant law or part of the constitution which support his authority.
      An other issue is the need to know weather the F.S. is the official managing the fund, and weather the F.S. is the one from which the query should be directed. Linton is not an auditor nor does he have any auditor’s authority.
      Does he have a case to prove dishonest dealings or is he doing the usual political show boating, his “big bad dog ting” with his usual press conference for imagery.
      It would be interesting to note what figures are in the Estimates as ACTUAL revenue for the 3 years he wants reviewed.
      I hope he has a legit complain that will make the government transparent and accountable. His action weather valid or not will set a good president to display honesty or dishonesty, to expose corruption or not. I am waiting. DNO thanks for the hot topic.

        Don’t talk BS! You are clutching for straws. It’s time for all you to assess your options. All you have bet on the wrong horse and should do damage limitation now. It’s not to late.

      The chairman needs information to share with the committee for discussion does he not? How else is he supposed to get the documents? Duh.

      Forget about Linton and the Committee for a minute; Don’t YOU want to know what happened to the money? Are you a Dominican? Does it really matter who is asking? Is it not your right to know what is happening with money that has been collected in your name? Do you know what “transparency” means?

    My advice to the PM and the DLP Government… This is Lennox Linton… Do not mess with him… He will expose you and your crimes. As I see it you have two options:
    1: Resign from office and come clean and take your jail.
    2: Resign from office and payback the money in Cash or assists, and maybe Lennox will not send you stock farm.
    Either way, things looking Grim for this cabal.

        Skerrit`s name is stained and he is not trusted and mature enough to manage our sates fnancial and other affairs. Serrit is just talk and full off all kind of fanfare to distract us Dominicans on matters of state that affects all of us Dominincans. Hon Linton`s name is open, transparent, professional and tell us as it is. This man Hon. Linton is in parliament in our interest and that of the state. Skerrit is now scared and blowing Red Steam. Why? they are scared of Hon. Linton and just cannot come to his stature. Hon Linton has clarity, deportment, delivery. That is what has awoken us on exactly the level of bobol and deceitfulness going on within this corrupt Labour government and failed incompetent Prime (Odd) minister. Skerrit, as you said: “Go To hell, Go to Hell, Go to Hell, it is our “Damn business”. Hon Linton, his highly professional UWP Team is in Parliament to expose Failed Dishonourable Skerrit and his bunch of questionable ministers and those out there defending…

      Jack Sparrow! hmmmmm ! there is a government site! Make yourself knowledgeable. Expose with stories! Where are the facts – Tangible? Boy I am saddened . Allegations without facts. The man was on a committee and was never there to audit. Public Accounts Committee. Awa I do not want to be so non speaking and saying things I am not knowledgeable of without tangible evidence. Lord have mercy on us.

      Has there been an accusation? I know there has been a question which is, where has the money gone? Guilty persons has overreacted since their conscience knows they’re not doing things like they should. Skerrit has forsaken Dominica for his own benefit!
