Linton to police on trespassing complaint: ‘I will not be playing any games’

Daniel Carbon Chief of Police (right) and Lennox Linton Leader of the opposition

United Workers Party (UWP) and Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has said that he will “not be playing any games” in relation to a criminal complaint of trespassing on his property which he has filed with the police.

Linton said he wrote to the Chief of Police, Daniel Carbon, asking for an investigation into a matter of criminal trespassing on his property by two caucasian men but based on the tone and language of the response letter from the Chief, he feels that he has now, instead, become the subject of investigation.

In a letter dated 21st October 2019, which acknowledged receipt of the Opposition Leader’s complaint, Carbon goes on to state, “Please be informed that this matter is under investigations and you (Linton) will be required to cooperate fully with the investigations”.

On May 19th 2019, CCTV Cameras installed at Linton’s home showed a caucasian man entering his yard and dropping off a black bag on his doorstep, but leaving with it.

There was also another video with the same man repeating the act but only to have another Caucasian man yank it off Linton’s doorstep moments later.

The UWP claims that via their investigation they have found evidence that identifies the men as British nationals that the UWP alleges were paid by the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) to carry out what Linton called “mischief” during the elections.

Linton said he gave the police evidence of information that he had, including a copy of his own video and comments from government officials.

“I have given them the footage from my security camera indicating what happened in real time at my house on the 19th of May 2019. I have given them comment from government ministers. I have indicated to them the various websites and individuals operating for and on behalf of the Dominica Labour Party, who have been peddling this story, in order to put me in bad light”.

The Opposition Leader said he is left to wonder about the police commissioner’s request for his full cooperation in the investigation.

“When the Police Commissioner tells me that ‘you will be required to cooperate fully with the investigations,’ I start thinking, maybe you want to investigate me now for bringing the complaint.”

According to Linton, he has received information that “police officers may be involved in facilitating these criminals to plant false evidence at my house.”

He says word has also reached him from within the Labour Party that he has played into their hands by asking for a police investigation.

“I am making this clear, abundantly clear, that I am not playing games with the police where this matter is concerned,” Linton declared. “I am the one who filed a complaint of a criminal offense that took place on my property, I am not the subject of an investigation. This matter will be internationalized like no other matter has been internationalized in Dominica before.”

DNO reached out to Chief of Police Daniel Carbon but he was not willing to comment.

    Calm down people, an accusation is not a conviction. Everyone is a suspect until the contrary is proved. No one is above the law. It is an offence to enter and trespass on any one’s private property. The questions remain. We got the who, or whom,when,where and why? Also got the exhibit towards a black bag. So easy for the police but, it takes time, people have to be interviewed. The Police would be happy if you would deliver the culprits to them. In short, empty vessels make the most noise. We all are against crime.

    Sir, resist the temptation to cry wolf. A good leader measures and weighs his every pronouncement to avoid being labeled one who dabbles in foolishness and folly.

    Please be reminded there is much real work and heavy lifting to be done as the campaign season comes to a close.

    Stop frittering away valuable time by sweating the small and insignificant stuff!!!

    It is obvious that Lennox’s response to Daniel’s letter has began to create some uneasiness. Because ny person who presents evidence to the law for investigation on their behalf and refuses to participate when they are required by the investigator tells me something is not right. Only a fool who would refuse to help the law solve a trespassing violation on their property. Beware Dominica. Lennox is not that honest man he portrait. This is a no brainer.

    I am not suprised, a few months ago there was an ALLEGED voice note made by an ALLEGED minister where he spoke about an ALLEGED crime committed by an ALLEGED minister against a young lady.
    In the voice note it is ALLEGED he proceeded to say “I do not know what the young lady will do when police come to her, maybe she will kill herself,” So if you are the Victim? an the police have to protect victims? why you need to kill yourself?
    It’s obvious the police is not free an fair they nothing but a goon squad.
    The police only police if you park on a keep clear, or you still a cheese by witchutch or you cut a man, but matters of almost “White colour crimes” or crimes commited by “Higher” members of society?
    Their hands are tied. Give a minister GF/ Wife/ Brother /Friend a ticket, and see what happens to it. But the barefoot man like me would have to pay it.

    This isnt a country run by law, the law only applies for one set.

    This is unbelievable. Just imagine that someone developed his/her own evidence then send it to Law enforcement and then refuses to cooperate with the said agency. Then turn around and blamed the agency for not investigating the case. What sane person would condone his/her actions. Supporters are you so gullible. Don’t let Politicians and Political Party cloud whatever little dignity and honesty that you remain. Be honest with yourself…Dont be bamboozle and hoodwinked.

    Linton boyyyyyyy. I don’t even know what . But y did you go to the police. If you can do your own investigation. You are a police officer.

  10. October 24, 2019

    “I start thinking, maybe you want to investigate me now for bringing the complaint.”

    Mr. Linton, Sir, what is really your problem? If you are the defendant of an incident, why does it surprise you that the demand for your co-operation will be intensive during the investigation?

    Also, you know that an investigation is in process, but you are speaking all kind of alibies, that you are convinced will lead to DLP as your plaintiff. You are so sure that they will be found guilty, you want this matter to be internationalized like no other matter has been internationalized in Dominica before.”

    Sir, can’t you realize how desperate you are to gratify your selfish ego, that that desperation is driving you to complete madness?

    Yet you want to be the next Prime Minister of Dominica. O man, the international World will stay away from you as far as they can be, because they will not want to become defiled through that madness of yours–good heavens!

      Liz, This uneducated, uninformed incompetent man wants to be PM responsible for national security but do not understand the simple procedure of a police investigation, that should have happened 5 months ago. This lack of common sense has him exposing his complete ignorance of all government procedures.
      And Mr Know-it-all will not take advise when extended to him. See how he treated the advise of the F S on the CBI money. See how this egomaniac try to insert himself in a Heads of Government conference.
      He does not know the difference between
      a point of order or point of correction in the House of Assembly. After 4 years he does not understand, “Why the eyes always have it” so he called the speaker bias. He knows nothing about a supplementary question or a supplementary estimate. Lately he called an illegal protest march” a gathering.” He claims that he is not playing games, but his track record speaks says different because that is all he can do. Play political games.

    I appreciate the fact that a crime was committed against the leader of the opposition and all who are responsible must be made to account for such a cruel and, I must say, cowardly act. However, I think Mr. linton erred in the tone of his letter. A no no whenever writing to any investigative body is to appear to be directing the investigators where to look and what to persue. Firstly, it is insulting to normally very proud law enforcement officials. Secondly, you bring suspicion to yourself by trying to steer the investigation in a particular direction. With all that said do not relent and you should share your complaint with every possible international body. If nothing is done back home in Dominica a paper trail will exist at these organizations; a trail you may use as leverage when it becomes necessary. All the best.

    • Joseph John
      October 25, 2019

      A paper trail of what ? He first accuse people of wanting to assassinate him, murder is a high crime.
      Now he want an investigation into trespass.
      But trespassing is not a crime in Dominica. So how can the police act when a crime is not committed.
      Then the people he want investigated are not in any of the videos. So what hard copy evidence can he give to the police to support his accusation.
      Maybe he will incriminate himself.
      He has been antagonizing the police from day one so how will he get the benefit of the doubt. Just this afternoon he had a gathering that is not a gathering , that was turned into a creole match like interjection/interference in the independent celebration to embarrass the police with disrespect.
      He think that insulting/harassing the police will give him political points, but who can he call when he has a problem.( who he gonna call…)
      His show boating and grandstanding has only entertainment value. Just like his Guyana visit.

    The majority including former Labourites, who do not support this criminality are on your side patriot Linton, and if it means matching for justice up and down the streets of Roseau, before regional and international press, it will happen as well..
    This is serious business..
    Planting evidence at a man’s home is only done by criminals, and criminals must be brought to court to answer to their criminal acts!

      I wonder what will happen when the press discover that you are playing them for fools and taking them for rides.
      Linton made a big splash when he spoke to the international press re the “passport money” about two years ago, but they ignored him re Maria. He should know by now that he is on their negative lists because he is not a reliable source.

      And you will fall with him because this is his last fight and he knows he cannot win.
      He has tried to but will not compromise the police or the government workers.
      When followers who are more educated than him refuse to be taken for rides and be his margee any more he will be crushed. You and those like you remaining and walking the half mile with him will roll down the hill and taylaylay.

    Mr Linton stood on a public platform and gave a lot of information about the individuals whom he alleged trespassed on his property. He gave names, addresses where they reside in the UK, flight details to DA and Back to UK, yet a few weeks later now asking for DA Police to investigate. Maybe the Police should start by investigating Linton Himself with regard to this matter. This looks to me like a stitch up plan organised by UWP themselves.

    Carbon if you think Skerrit can save you from this you are dead wrong! You will suffer like you never did before, the best thing you can do right now is humble yourself, resign wile you still have a pension and gratuity, because soon not even that you will have access to. This is NOT a game, you have no idea what is not yet revealed.

    Mr. Carbon, in my honest opinion, should be dismissed from his position in the Police Force without delay. The man does not act as the Chief of Police but like the Chief bodyguard of Skerrit and his entourage. It’s not by accident that Dominica occupies the cellar position in the OECS. It’s because Dominica is a country of the WORST although more blessed than all the other with natural beauty and resources. I dare anybody to dispute these stubborn facts. Dominica has the: Worst government; Worst economy; Worst parliament; Worst Police Force; Worst Ministers; Worst healthcare; Worst sporting facilities; Worst airport; Worst seaport; Worst………… It’s infinite, it never stops. OUT! OUT! OUT! Hurry up!

    Linton during the course of the investigation the Police MUST QUESTION YOU,in order to record a statement.If you are found to be LYING to the public,you should be CHARGED WITH PUBLIC MISCHIEF.From the videos your report is FALSE.You are LYING TO THE PUBLIC.You will NEVER CO-Operate with the Police. Police Officers may be involved,internatioalized,all that is BS.The POLICE know your story is a MAKE-UP.I know your story is a LIE.TRYING TO COVER YOUR TRACKS.Just like 3,961 by 50,000 = 1,200,000,000.

      Is it true that he fought in school and got expelled because he was teased for not being able to do mental arithmetic ? I am not good at mental arithmetic but I used an app on cell to do this problem : 3, 961 X 50,000 EQUALS 198,050, 000 a far cry from US$ 1.2 billion. Or 2.2 because he explain that only 1 billion is accounted for.
      He must be using money account of the Persian Empire dating 2,500 years ago.
      Is that called voodoo arithmetic when you counting jombee money with your eyes closed ? I am not playing games , just asking

    We know that you have to sound relevant to your base, but I am wondering how people with a little common sense could actually follow such a clown. The saddest part Lennox followers are not all uneducated or blue vex people. On a daily basis the man is in front of a mike just talking for talking save and it’s nothing of substantial or relevant towards the betterment of Dominica. The man is solely yapping about himself. The same lies over and over, example Skerrit cannot travel because he will be arrested, do you ever ask what happened to that illusion or myth. Why do intellectually functional Dominicans let a high school dropout, con you into believing that he has the ability to fix all your problems. Remember the leader of the UWP had to pay restitution for lies and deceit. Look at the amount of times LL has been sued and judgments were against him, that’s not a victim but a villain. Why would you want such a character to be your leader? Look at the threat to the authorities, I will .

    There could be trouble ahead .
    There is plenty more to come with those sniper rifles .

    I would have loved to see the ending of this story if Linton had a dog which was let off the front door to attack the men .

      The Police did the right thing. The responded to the request and asked Lonnox for his cooperation. Usually the person doing the request for investigation is the first person of interest to ensure that the complain is legitimate.
      Linton has the reputation of making all kinds of wild accusations and demands. It is his investigation so why the reluctance to cooperate. Why the grandstanding of I en playing games.
      His respond should be that he is ready and at the disposal of the police, because he has nothing to hide.

      It is so strange. You ask for an investigation and when it is about to start you have all kinds of things to say. The matter is under investigation so shut up, wait and let the police do their duty. Why the harassment of the police with all kinds of accusations. Let them do their job.

    “When the Police Commissioner tells me that “you will be required to cooperate fully with the investigations, I start thinking, maybe you want to investigate me now for bringing the complaint”.

    That’s why you cannot be our PM you lack the basic understanding of procedures… No one is investigating yoiu but you must cooperate with the police in order for them to assist you… a typical case in point you provided the footage of the afternoon what about the evening when you came from the meeting, we need to see footage of the entire week to see if these perpetrators ever returned to your compound whilst you were out or when you were sleeping.
    In fact you know what Lennox send your video to INTERPOL as you planned to do innitially, in fact you can go further send it to THE FBI AND SCOTLAND YARD!!!! Guess they will need no further info from you is just pick up and arrest the alias Terry Baron for visiting you whilst you were out however took photos the same evening of the visit!!

Remember how many of them forgot their job/work and were on radio blaming the war veteran?
