Opposition Leader denies offering diplomatic passport for sale in wake of TV documentary

Opposition and UWP leader Lennox Linton

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has sought to clear the air on allegations made against him in a documentary produced by International TV Network Al Jazeera.

The first part of a documentary, Diplomats For Sale which names Dominica as one of the countries involved in the alleged sale of diplomatic passports, aired yesterday on Al Jazeera.

In Diplomats for Sale, Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit exposes politicians in the Caribbean including Dominica and Grenada willing to accept secret campaign contributions from wealthy foreign businessmen in exchange for diplomatic passports.

In Dominica, members of both the ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP) and opposition United Workers Party (UWP) appear willing to receive money in return for a political post, allegations the leaders of both parties strongly deny.

Undercover filming also revealed how former Dominican Prime Minister, Oliver Seraphin, offered to broker a secret deal to hand out an ambassadorship in Asia for fees totalling $470,000.

The document also mentioned Attorney, David Bruney and Seraphin appearing as key in direct involvement with the opposition leader who is campaigning on a platform of anti-corruption.

However, Linton said during a live interview on Q-95 Radio on Tuesday that he has not spoken to or seen Oliver Seraphin in more than 5 years, nor has he had any conversation with Bruney to sell diplomatic passports, ambassadorships, or diplomatic immunity to anybody.

“I have had no discussions with Oliver Seraphin. As a matter of fact, I have not spoken to or seen, Oliver Seraphin in more than 5 years,” he revealed. “I didn’t even know he was in Dominica. We have had absolutely no conversation about campaign financing, far less campaign finance money in exchange for diplomatic passports or diplomatic immunity.”

“Understand what you just saw in the Al Jazeera documentary. You saw a number of politicians being accused of involvement in one way or the other and at the backend of the programme, you saw the Al Jazeera report seeking to tie Lennox Linton into a deal to selling diplomatic passports,” Linton explained. “It never happened.”

He further explained that he spoke to David Bruney about a state asset recovery program that he [Linton] is committed to as the leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) after getting into government.

He said the extent which David as a legal person, using his network, could identify for the party a couple of legal people with international experience, including that of finance, money laundering and so on, “ to help us find the assets of the state of Dominica that have been deposited around the world.”

“That, in essence, was the substance of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that I signed with David Bruney,” he revealed. “As Al Jazeera has noted it has absolutely nothing to do with the exchange of money for diplomatic immunity, diplomatic passports or ambassadorships. They have said that in the story.”

Linton went on to say that he cannot claim any responsibility for what went down between Seraphine and Bruney.

“I can only tell you what went down between David Bruney and myself and the substance and truth of the document that Al Jazeera claims to have,” he remarked.

He said further that Al Jazeera also claims that there is a document indicating that their man, the Al Jazeera man, also has a document indicating an Ambassadorship will be conferred after the election, should he become Prime Minister.

“That particular potential Ambassador is an Al Jazeera plant who spoke to me, who sent me WhatsApp messages about his conversations or contacts with David Bruney,” Linton stated. “Why was it not possible for Al Jazeera to use the WhatsApp chat messages their plant, the Al Jazeera undercover agents sent to my phone and the single conversation that we have, it had absolutely nothing to do with any diplomatic passport, or any ambassadorship or any diplomatic immunity in exchange for money, nothing.”

He also made it clear that at no time in the past, now or there will ever be an occasion in the future where, “ Lennox Linton will offer ambassadorships, diplomatic passports or diplomatic immunity for sale to anybody because fundamentally I think it’s wrong.”

“I think it’s a violation to the United Nations Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations of 1961.”

Linton mentioned also that he believes the practice of selling diplomatic immunity, ambassadorships, and diplomatic passports represents a crime against humanity.

Meantime, Linton said this is not a 2019 election campaign issue.

“This is a matter that has been with us for a number of years,” he stressed. “We saw in the documentary the extent to which Alireza Monfared who now owes US$1.3 billion to the state of Iran that Iran claims he stole from them, we see all the evidence in that documentary.”

Linton stressed that if his party wins, it will be the first government in the history of the Caribbean, “within the first 100 days of our administration,” to enact in parliament, an act to prevent the Sale of diplomatic immunity.

    Admin if you know so much tell us according to ALJAZEERA,what doucment Linton signed.Tell if you believe BRUNEY and OJ made a deal for CAMPAIGN FINANCING on behalf of UWP,without LINTON’S knowledge.Remember the Word NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED Is it possible LINTON could have been directing things from the outside? I believe LINTON was the COMMANDER.O J report to BRUNEY,BRUNEY report to LINTON.LINTON makes the final decision.Not being DIRECTLY in volved does not mean LINTON was not involved in the SALE OF PASSPORTS.LINTON is involved in everything happening on behalf of UWP.

    ADMIN: We are working on getting a copy of the MOU that should help clarify some of those questions.

    Ultimately, that’s your view and those are valid questions to ask. We support everyone’s right to hold individual views and to ask valid questions.

    Elizabeth, I am not quiet as you claim: if you read you E-mail you will learn the reason why I am silent.

    Another reason I am quiet is that I am inundated with some pup-up advertisement on DNO, I doubt they are emanating from DNO.

    Now, in regards to this crap, and the allegations levied against Lennox, I believe that Roosevelt is into this libel and slander neck deep.

    The odds seems to be against Roosevelt and the labor party at the moment, so what better ploy to use than to try to get Lennox entangled into framing, Lennox by creating a scandal from out of thin air.

    No question about it we know that Roosevelt has sold diplomatic passports  in the past past, but how can someone in the case of Lennox who does not have any control over passports, don’t know if he is going to win his seat promise to sell diplomatic passports.

    It’s all a lie; a frame!

    ADMIN: DNO has never had pop up ads on the site.

      I think that you should have continued to remain quiet because you have no idea what you are talking about here; so your comment makes no sense.

      Here is the first paragraph of the news article; go back and read carefully the rest of it, to learn something about the International TV Network Al Jazeera

        So, Elizabeth what does that in the quote means?

        Are you actually using that to suggest I do do not know what I am talking about; the same as how last night when you were ranting and raving using kid on block stupid comments to justifying your support for a man we know is a damn thief eh, eh, eh!

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

        Are you suggesting if someone lied on if you were a public figure, a political representative of a constituency you would not seek to clear your name and get to the root of the lies.

        Shame on you.

        And I will tell everybody how you told me last night, how you know who have that $1.2 billion eh; that is why you grantee to me that you are not broke like a church mouse oui!

      You are so right – that “Dominicans will soon see the true Lennox.” and that will come soon.
      And what about failed Skerrit. After 19yers, not soo, bi=ut now and immediate people have see the true faked Skerrit in action. That man Skerrit is a failure and there is no way intellectual worse and honesty wise that Skerrit can get into the shoes of Hon Linton. We have a decent, intellectual incoming Prime Minister, who is Hon Lennox Linton.
      On the other hand we have a very devious, failed, incompetent failed Skerrit in office and he is on his way OUT. He need to be out and Get on with it. Because he has been this big failure and not suited, not professional and intellectual sufficiently to be Prime Minister. Skerrit must Go. we need a change ad we welcome Hon Lennox Linton and his highly professional UWP Team – Dominica. That is where our Dominica needs to go.
      Dominica, lets go, be open and take back our Dominica to some level of decency, good governance, honesty With Linton and…

    This allegation against aspiring PM Linton is troubling at best and potentially insurmountable at worst.

    The timing is certainly not good on the eve the general election.

    If the assertions are true, this could be detrimental to the challengers chances on December 6th.

    Depending on which side of the political divide one is on, the media can be seen as one that brings a bone (remember the 60 Minutes expose) or one who carries a bone (as might be the case this time around).

    The lesson learned here is that be careful when pointing fingers as those digits can some day be pointed right back at you!!!!

    As part of the documentary, isn’t there a document signed by Lennox Linton offering the diplomatic passport within 28 days of him becoming the PM?
    Has he denied signing this document?
    Has he indicated that his signature was forged and if so, has he reported this to law enforcement authorities around the world?
    (He is very good at writing letters to all sorts of people and institutions around the world).
    Wasn’t it their (Linton, Bruney & OJ) intention to receive the US$400,000 for their campaign after signing this document with Bruney receiving his cut of $20,000 and OJ $50,000?
    Isn’t Linton the one who was on 60 Minutes telling the world that Skerrit was selling Dominica’s diplomatic passports?
    Isn’t Linton the one who has said that 1.2 billion dollars is missing from the sale of passports, claiming that Skerrit has pocketed this money.
    So if Linton signed this document, knowing what the deal was all about, how can he or any of his supporters say that he did nothing wrong?

    ADMIN: You stated”.. Linton signed this document, knowing what the deal was all about…” this implies Linton knew about an exchange of money that is not what this article or the Al Jazeera investigation video says.

    The Al Jazeera report specifically says the document does not mention campaign donations (exchange of money), and Al Jazeera makes it clear that both Bruney and Seraphine were “keen to prevent the direct involvement of the opposition leader…”

    The documentary does suggest that both candidates have violated (or intend to violate) the 1961 United Nations Convention on diplomatic relations at least in spirit in reference to the appointment of foreign nationals as ambassadors.

    All I’m seeing there is that all you try to dig a pit for Skerrit and all you fall in it. That’s all I’m seeing. Because the part about Skerrit looking like something inspired by you all. It was like carbon copy. It is the very same speculations you guys have been putting out there in the world about Dominica and Skerrit. They even played Dice song lol. You all thought they wouldn’t have investigated all you too. You can see they were using the former PM to get to both sides but while they could only come up with continued speculation all you accustom of making about Skerrit, they came up with concrete stuff that directly links all you to the same crime that you all have been accusing Skerrit of for years. I don’t worry much for Skerrit cause he is a politician but look at the state all you have our country in. For years all just spreading negative news about the country. For what? Just for power! Hypocrite! Conman!

Also, remember we said over and over again to be careful of this failed incompetent Skerrit of yours that we kept warning you all and therefore you all blind loyalist have Skerrit Red pant printed all over with “Lair lair your pants on fire “and for your illiteracy in spelling words, we of the UWP will help elevate your English away from Skerrit. Mine, read carefully the correction. The proper spelling is: Liar, Liar, Skerrit`s Red Pants is on “Corruption” Fire”, and he will be gone. Do not bother with Hon Linton, who is independent thinking, an intellectual, where your Skerrit has failed miserable. He will never be elevated to the heist of our Hon. Linton. You all have caught Skerrit in a barrel full of crabs, and can`t get out.

    Please don’t forget that in the Al Jazeera documentary, O.J observed that the results of the election was too close to call. The documentary produced evidence to condemn the Labour Party side. In an attempt to show neutrality, the producers had to throw something evil at the UWP leader. But that accusation holds no water. Though LL may have acted prematurely, he has not committed any crime or offence. As a matter of fact, the LL initiative is an indication of what will take place following a UWP victory.

What also caught much of my attention in the Aljazeera documentary is the opulent living quarters of Melissa and her children in the US. The Aljazeera revelations should open the eyes of every Dominican. How any patriotic, sensible, right thinking citizen could support and vote for such a severely corrupt man and his spineless disciples is shockingly disappointing.

Today has shown me beyond any doubt that the people supporting the UWP will hold their leaders to a much higher standard then we have seen with the DLP. Team Dominica, if there was any doubt that the voting public will let you get away with what Skerrit has done, you are in for a surprise. UWP voters, your concerns have been noted. Dust yourselves off, reconfirm your support and let’s remove the DLP; they certainly don’t deserve our support.

    “They can create a story and try to connect me with it, that’s fine; investigative people do that.”

    Lennox, the above quote is yours from DNO’s news article of November 25, 2019.

    I easily perceived your reason for saying that; you knew what you would do should that “creation of story” according to you, showed up, which is exactly what you have done.

    What I heard from your quote was: “If they mention my name in their investigation–whatever for–I will deny it” and so said, so done!

    Lennox Linton was not; Lennox Linton did not, and Lennox will never be involved in anything bad

    I can also remember some time ago when you were at an interview with Hutchington Post, you were lashing against the Labour Party about the CBI program—-

    When they ask you about the United Workers Party, pertaining to how they worked with that program, your response was: “I am not sure, I have to check”. Lennox, was that a truth?

    And now I rest my case!

      Elizabeth, too much “Beth – Beff”, Go talk to Skerrit to clean up his dirty politics and get out of our corrupted, failed Dominica where our people have been reduced to beggars due to poverty created by this failed immature Skerrit. That is the issue and with Skerrit immaturity he is unable to focus on what socio-economic development is and we are fedup of it at the Financial Centre when we know that this man just cannot and is unable to catch up with us. For Skerrit it is all about fanfare, and have people come up to the office, through my office to their fake PM who have killed our agricultural produce and has our farmers and family in misery due to you and your failed labour gang an Skerrit. Elizabeth, with your beff, do u plant bananas and or just there to talk BS nonsense in defending outdated Skerrit who has killed our agriculture and or selling our passports/ Skerrit must go, we need decent people leaders with trust to manage our Dominica. Skerrit out. Linton UWP in.

      The PM and his Government were featured in 98% of the documentary as having done various unsavory things. Linton’s name was mentioned as per two operatives alluding to some kind of agreement for future action. Let us say for a moment that that 3% of the documentary is correct and the veracity of the documentary is in no question, then surely by your reasoning the 98% of the documentary ought also to be correct.

      In that regard, what are you going to do about it.
      INIQUITY is INIQUITY by whatever magnitude or by whoever commits it, whether Skerritt or Linton.
      Both must prove their innocence don’t you think?

      Our responses to these things may speak volumes to the nature of our inner reasoning, our moral and spiritual standing.
      I pray God shower me with wisdom and discernment in these matters.

    I would like anyone who watched the video to show me where lennox asked for or received money. It was poor judgement on lennox part to even think of putting an investigative or legal team together to investigate the pm and the 1.2 billion. But how can anyone tell me what was said about lennox in that video was half as bad as all the sh*t the pm did. That thing is mind boggling and for some reason people want to dwell on something where no money was asked for or received by lennox but money gifts and a whole lot more was taken in by the PM and his boys. The dlp is doing a good job spinning that and trying to confuse Dominicans but if they are smart, they will watch the whole video and call for the PM to go on any radio station to answer questions like lennox did. Now I think we need to hear from OJ. We want to hear his side of the story. But Dominicans don’t be fooled it is a distraction. If lennox is corrupt we will remove him after his first term. Let us prove it for ourselves.

      “It was poor judgement on lennox part to even think of putting an investigative or legal team together to investigate the pm and the 1.2 billion.” But–@ can, why did you continue with “BUT”?

      Do you understand what this investigation alone can do to our Nation?

      Isn’t it that disgusting work of Lennox which has Dominica labeled as according to this “International TV Network”? Does Lennox care about our people? Does he care about our Nation?

      And if it was true–which I doubt it is–that $1.2 billion was uncounted for, and Lennox with his crooks had found, do you believe he would give back that money to the people of Dominica?

      I will always believe that the obsession of Lennox Linton has nothing to do with becoming a savior for us, Dominicans–we don’t need him!

      The man’s obsession lies in his desire to destroy, Sir Roosevelt Skerrit, but he has no trait of strength so to accomplish this–especially not his crooked ways.

        I totally agree with you that it was Linton who exposed all the fraudulent behavior and Bobol.

        Since the ruling administration seem rotten, Dominica is looking for an alternative.

        My concern is, I HOPE HE IS NOT IMPLICATED LIKE THE GOVERNMENT.
        A fair and legitimate concern, given the Al Jazeera report. I PRAY FOR DOMINICA’s SAKE that the alternative we now have is clean. That’s all.

        Interestingly, in another post expressing my disgust at the behavior of the Government operatives, someone referred to Lennox as my leader now you ascribing Skerrit to me. I LAUGH AT BOTH INSTANCES.

        It tells me I am being balanced.

    Al Jazeera would be well advised to subject their collaborators to close scrutiny (due diligence). Leo Ford is a convicted fraudster, found so by renowned Chief Judge Rawlings on 28 Oct. 2008 in the BVI court of appeal when he overruled a previous finding by Brian Cottle (…yes, that Brian Cottle, our singing judge!). The claimants were trying to recover U.S.11 million from Leo Ford and two others, who operated under the name of BVI registered Boston Life and Annuity company. Leo Ford was a one time resident of Dominica (Morne Daniel) where he ran a company by the name of Vista Inc. after which he disappeared to Panama. His close Dominican associate O.J. Seraphim was Chairman and Dir. of political relations of Ford’s Panamanian Aspen Insurance Ltd. and closely involved with a controversial project to introduce Bitcoin to Dominica.

    Wait….so Lennox would sign a document without reading it? The document clearly offers diplomatic passport in 28 days upon becoming PM. Lennox can jump high or jump low his lies will not get him out of this one. It’s just rather unfortunate that he had to throw David Bruney under bus for something he was clearly part of. He also admitted that he was putting a few things in place so he could hit the ground running? This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. Sam Raphael also reveals a few years ago how the UWP moved funds into Dominica. There is too much evidence of Lennox’s dishonesty for anyone to believe him now. How can you tell the people that you are going to clean our diplomatic passport programs and underhandedly make nefarious passport deals? Likewise, he is trying to stop Labourites from coming to vote but making all the arrangement for UWPites to come home to vote. How hypocritical.

      Are We Dominicans honest with ourselves and honest before God. A thread of information at the end of the documentary mentioned Linton and what seem to be intended action by OJ & Bruney (and possibly Linton). All right thinking Dominicans ought to pause to assess it and try to determine if he has erred – which is the correct thing to do.

      But 98% of the documentary dealt with actions already undertaken by the Government and its operatives. How then can you refer to sins of Linton but The PM is a man of God? This is very disingenuous and sinful. Too many Dominicans, both DLP & UWP supporters follow blindly with no ability to think for themselves. SAD.

      Both men under the circumstances, must prove to the country their innocence.
      It cannot be true reporting for one but false for the other. Let them all prove their innocence.

    First bat….personally I think we have some form of commonsense. In the discuss David reiterated due diligence and screening. He further maintained development throughout. Finally the story basically ended with Aljezeera indicating that not money in exchange. They also mentioned all the deals that have been done already, lots of money collected, and deposited in the business account of persons. They also mentioned that bars of gold were granted, they also mentioned the outcome of some of the passport holders. and they mentioned the hope of the diplomatic passports holders – my bags will not be searched, I cannot be arrested due to my immunity. And finally all these monies were collected, we were told it was to finance the campaign, it is Dominica money and should have been spent on fixing roads, rebuilding school, having a better hospital and staff, have health centers more equipped, fixing the Marigot hospital and alikes; having an international airport, free text books.
