Police search home of Lennox Linton

Linton

The home and car of radio personality and journalist, Lennox Linton were  searched on Wednesday morning as the authorities begin to investigate how confidential matters before the Integrity in Public Office (IPO) ended up in Linton’s hands.

“Police officers from the Criminal Investigation Department of the Commonwealth Police Force visited my home this morning in Morne Daniel,” Linton told Dominica News Online. “They had a warrant from Magistrate Candia George which authorized them to search for confidential documents which they believed was concealed in my home.”

Earlier this month the IPO said in a release that it had written to the Chief of Police, Daniel Carbon, seeking assistance in investigating how secret and confidential proceedings before the Commission concerning Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit fell into the hands of Linton.

“The Integrity Commission has listened to a broadcast and read the transcript of the ‘Between you and Me’ programme of Sunday 16th December 2012 on Q95FM radio in which information relating to the declaration of a person in public life filed with the Commission i.e. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, was published by Mr. Lennox Linton on that programme,” the IPO said.

Linton said that after he made sure the warrant was legitimate he gave the police “complete and unfettered” access to all areas of his home and also gave them documents he had in his possession which he thought was the subject of the search. “On the 16 of December, I had made some disclosure on radio about the declaration of Mr. Skerrit to the IPO,” he said. “I was very happy to explain to the police how the document came into my possession, the source of the documents that are in my possession … I gave and the police received copies of the documents I had….”

He thanked the police for the professional manner in which the search was done but said he hoped it was not the end of the matter. “I am hoping now that it is not just going to stop here,” he said.

Linton is of the opinion that the entire matter is ‘public mischief’ engineered by Senior Counsel Tony Astaphan. “Once the police have completed the investigation in this matter, the question now becomes what is going to happen with the public mischief, this conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, that Astaphan is clearly involved in,” he said.

Linton further said he is willing give the police any further assistance they may require in the matter.

    Tony and Skerrit are responsible for Mr. Linton’s popularity.Approximately two hundred and fifty comments have already been made on the police search of Mr. Linton’s home,ninety five percent of the comments are in sympathy with him,therefore why doesn’t those jokers just let him be. Mr. Linton never reports on any issue unless he has positive and honest information on whatever he brings to Dominicans and the world by extension. Therefore, by now, one would have thought that by attacking him would be ineffective.

    That search is a waste of time and money. All the authorities in this country need to do is educate their journalists. Not that most are not already fully aware, but let then know when a matter is before the courts or institutional authorities then the evidence should not be national news. After the decision on the case, do as you like. Is a matter and combination of both ethics and law. Unfortunately caribbean people are passionate people so not all will show good ethics, and some form of punishment, by law seems appropriate. I would not go as far as investigating to have a long trial, but a fine should be enough. A fixed fine for all. You interfere with a case and make it public, you get fined. As long as interference does not affect justice being served. Lennox need to step back at times and think. I know he is passionate and has his allegiances but he have to be a professional journalist.

    Why cant people like Lennoxx Linton who think they are the voice of the people advocate for positive change? Instead of promoting negativity, enmity,division and hate why cant he be an advocate for change among our youth and young men? Does he ever support and promote positive things that are being done by individuals in the country? With all his political hate can he say how many jobs he has provided? How many young men and women he has taken out of danger and difficult situations and are now functioning positively in society? Dominica is small and faced with problems that any other country faces. We are a smaller poorer country so our challenges are even harder to deal with. However, that does not mean we cannot deal with our issues heads on and if loud voices and people like Lennox who think they are there for the people be more vigilant and demonstrate a better sense of caring maybe we would see life changes in Lovely Dominica

    “this conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, that Astaphan is clearly involved in,” he said.”(Lennox Linton).

    You know, I have to agree with the conspiracy theory, someone, or a grope of individuals has set into motion; not only to destroy Linton’s image and character, however if possible to ensure that he goes to jail!

    Nevertheless, here is my counter theory; the conspiracy is designed not only to take Lennox Linton down, hence an attempt to destroy both the Prime Minister, and Tony Astaphan in the process.

    There are those who alleged that Tony willfully and deliberately supply personal information regarding the Prime Minister to a third party, there are techniques which can be used to determine the origination of any E-mail dating back to the inception of the Internet which evolved here at a University in Southern California, walking distance from my residence right here in Los Angeles.

    As I stated yesterday that in a blog, of which Tony and also Lennox, and other Dominican officials are recipients, I stated that in the Caribbean; Tony is lawyers Lawyer!

    With that knowledge, I wonder if Tony would put himself in a situation which he is aware could well mean the end of his career. If indeed Tony exchanged personal information; privilege between attorney, and client, and that client came into the knowledge of this third party having his/her his personal information, and he complains (let’s say report Tony) to the Caribbean Bar Association; that could mean they could instantly have Tony disbarred, thus ending his legal career.

    The question here is this: which lawyer in their right mind would risks their lucrative career over something such as in debate at the moment!

    I think the police should first investigate the IPO, and all who was present at the meeting from which the information evolved; the culprit is someone who was present at that meeting.

    I was reliable informed yesterday that Tony Astaphan was not present in the meeting, so , I ask who is the tarter aboard!

    And Dominica CID, you cannot subpoena me, you can’t shot me up, so don’t even ask who is he; and even if you people find incriminating evidence in Lennox position there isn’t much you can do to him because the man is a journalist, and is not obligated to revile his source of information to anyone, not even god, never mind the police!

    I submit while the conspiracy may appear to be designed to take Lennox out of circulation, the real targets are Tony and Skerrit.

    The Francisco Telemaque theory is simply this; if we cannot beat Skerrit politically at the ballot box, and cannot defeat, or derail Tony career they had to try something like this.

    Somebody is responsible, and hopefully in the interim the truth will surface, and be told.

    DA really stinks! This administration has messed up this country so much that even red ants want to leave. Nothing is based on justice but rather on whose team you on. Example, a lawyer was charged with some 40 counts of theft and not even an arrest was made simply because he was on their team. Another citicen’s house was set on fire and instead of an arrest he was ably helped out of the country by those that suppose to defend us simply because he is on their team. Yet Lintons house was searched in an effort to protect a corrupt leader. Yet no effort has been made neither will one ever be made to search the house of Tony Astaphan. Why?

    Most good leaders surround themselves with good people that can give good advise. However, this PM only surrounds himself with people that can help him cover his transgression. Example, Daniel carbon is one of the lease qualified officer in Dominica yet he has the top job. Why? He and the PM are from the same village and we pay him not to serve the citizens but to cover the PM at the expense of the nation. Look at the magistrate that signed the warrant, Ms. Cacdia George. For those of you that don’t know, Candia is the daughter of another former commissioner, who was put there by Skerrit to cover his corrupt practices. I am referring to Mr. Carrette who retired last year. So everything about DA is all about corruption. If a government position is available although they may mention certain qualifications, yet they know very well that the main qualification they are looking for is the ability to cover corruption. So young people go to school and learn but please understand that no matter how educated you are you will not get a government job unless you are able and willing to cover corruption.

    MAN OF THE YEAR FOR 2013. LENNOX LINTON.
    What a fine son the Linton’s have given to Dominica. Love you brother for your brilliance,tenacity,frankness, openess,truthfulness,and your hatred for dishonest and roguish conduct in government.

    Dominicans seem to think that because someone says that another person is guilty of something you can just pick them up with no evidence. it does not work that way. i1f it were so i could just tell the police that anyone of you is a drug dealer and they would be picking you up. is that how justice works??

    I do not share Linton’s political views. Do I believe that he has an agenda? Hell Yes.

    But I cannot love Dominica and hate Lennox Linton. This man has revealed too many truths and has caused some wrongs to be righted that benefited Dominica.

    First and foremost the man is a journalist. The government has no right to search the man’s premises looking for his sources. And the ironic part is, he did reveal where the leak originated from.

    When you see Democratic governments start using these strong arm scare tactics then you know that they are on their way to self destruction.

    Something is really wrong with our country. The laws and judiciary only benefit a selected elite few.

    Dominicans seem to never learn from their history. There were past governments who felt they had the support of the people and they could do what they pleased. Come May 29th, the very people rose up against them. Take heed Mr. Government.

    Well Mr. Linton, the best thing that you can do is maintain your dignity when forces rise up against you. If you are in the right, then no one can snatch that away from you.

    GOD bless this little country of ours…

I hope Dominicans have what it takes to stand behind Mr. Linton he seems to be the voice of the unelected opposition ensureing that the Government is not cheating the people whom they swore to protect. After all he is a citizen demanding legitimate answers from the Gov. whether you like it or not.

    If the pm is honest with the people there should be nothing to hide.. what if he loses the next election. Is he going to burn state record?

    Look on the bright side… Soon we will be a colony of China and the dictatorship which Skerrit has imposed on Dominicans will no longer be illegal.

    The Astaphans came in a suitcase and now are the riches Dominicans so I guess they have no problems in helping the Chinese to take what ever is left. Anything to make sure that true blood Dominicans never get ahead.

    But the biggest joke of all is that 80% of the population supports this by voting for Skerrit year after year.. Goes to show that brain washing and intimidation works superbly.

    When are Dominicans going to wake up and save themselves and future Generations from being enslaved to the Chinese. Our lands are gone, our shops are gone.. what is left?

    History is repeating itself once more, DNO, Aurelius Jolly, Para Riviere,Ron Green, Bernard Wiltshire, were persons who experience those kind of search by police in the seventies, the difference is in those days they were looking for subversive articles, like the granma news paper from Cuba. Dominica’s only hope is that the police will go deeper in their search to see who really is that culprit that leaked out that IPO info

    The Police should not allow itself to be used by Tony Astaphan and Skerrit, they should do their work impartialy.Lennox has said publicly where he got his information.I think it would be fair to search Tony car and home also since he is the source of the info. It would appear that both Skerrit and Tony Astaphan are above the laws of Dominica.

        January 17, 2013

        Lougaroo, you know I am talking the truth. We most be careful in what we are doing. In the pursuit of defending the public we become over zealous and erode the fine line of confidentiality.

        Because once these actions become public we have lost any leverage like this case of lennox. Had he allowed the IPO to do its work then we would not be in this standstill and finger pointing.

        Now the very case he lennox filed has to be thrown out becaise of ewvidence tampering and we the public will never know the truth.

        Its all well and good to have a copy of the bank account and utilities bills and grocery and entertainment bill out there for everyone, but who benefits from that anyway.

        And you are learned enuff to know that lennox has another agenda and this is why he leaked the info…

    It seems the law is applied discriminately in Dominica. If the institutions, including the Police, want the public to have confidence in them, they must act fairly, impartially and must act in accordance with the rule of law and treat no one, including the Prime Minister and SENIOR Counsels, differently.

    “Linton said that after he made sure the warrant was legitimate he gave the police “complete and unfettered” access to all areas of his home and also gave them documents he had in his possession which he thought was the subject of the search”. Documents which he thought was the object of the search. he gave the police documents he wanted them to have. There is no indication that the police searched his computer. A search of his computer has to be indispensible to the investigation. Another red herring. I agree with one blogger that this is a waste of time and effort. Does our police have the expertise to investigate crimes in cyber space? Let us know.

    Mr. Linton seemingly is so well placed to get so many confidential documents by mistake – all the time. This is a super person.

    I wonder how many ordinary Dominicans, do the police treat that way. Most of us have no time to even read the warrants. The police simply barge in throw their warrant in your chest and do their search. Lennox was alowed to read the warant and when he was satisfied that the warrantwas authentic he allowed the police to do their work. treated differently. “Lennox know people who know people”. He might not know the Chief,but the rank and file who are the real investigators know him. A clear sign of where the police allegiance lies. Or is it a sign that the police have come of age?

    The truth is the search was a formality. Is there anyone in their right mind would think that Lennox will keep any such docuemnts at his home at Morne Daniel knowing fully well that the IPO had launched an investigation into the matter? This is a waste of time and effort.

      Are u suggesting that the police should have exercise unlimited brutality on Mr. Linton? Shame on you! You have even gone so far, as to impute that since that was not the outcome, then the police rank and file allegiance lies with Mr. Linton. You sound like a troublemaker. You must first inform yourself that the this case falls in the realm of WHITE collar crime, it is not like murder, rape, arson, drug trafficking etc. Thus the approach the police takes have to befit the situation.

      And even if the police takes Mr. Linton’s computer and destroy it, that still will not prevent Linton from exposing further damning revelations on your demigod Skeritt.

        Oh1 boy. I was not suggesting that the gentleman is not entitled to his rights, he has every right to his views, his positions, what he supports, whathe does not support and the list goes on. It is his right.
        My beef as you would have noted is with the police. So if some of you are police officers and in support of Mr. Linton’s partisan agenda, then your response did not surprise me. Most Dominicans know that when the police arrive with a search warrant they hardly give you time to read the same. They simply barge in and overturn everything they see. I agree with you that the subject of the warrant must be satisfied of the contents of the warrant. Mr. Linton is rightto ensure that the warrant was meant for him. The police does not afford us that kind of courtesy.

        I note too that soem of you have taken umbrage with my suggestion that any search of the property which does not include a foreign search of his computer as happened with Isidore’s computer is a complete waste of time. You have problem with that? If you do then youknow more about the leaking of information than Mr. Linton. By the way I believe too that Mr. Linton as an intelligent human being, after knowing that an investigation is on the way including him will not keep any incriminating evidence at his residence. Infact according to the report he gave the police information and evidence he thought would help their investigation. What does that say to you? Since when the police gleefully accept evidence or information given to them by somebody who is the subject of an investigation? Is it far fetched to deduce that the real evidence (hard copy) could very well be buried under a “Pemn Pemn” tree in the hills of Captain Bruce, Monkey Hill or under a banana tree at Hatton Garden, Pagua.

        My back is broad and have dasheen leaves characteristics. Go ahead, call me whatever you wish. It will just run off. Until another time. By the way was it Tony who leaked the information from the IPO meeting on December 14th 2012? Before you answer, you will notice I did not implicate your star investigator and journalist if that is your problem.

        My beef has been with the police and not the brother man. I wish all of us would be in a position like him to keep the police in their place when executing search warrants at our house. Unfortunately, not all of us “know people who know people” The police do not understand that all of us have the same constitutional rights. Fortunately for me the vast majority of people who have been the subject of police search warrants know what I am saying is true. Couple with his constitutional rights as a citizen, born and raise here and an aspiring PM, and the police’s support for his cause, they seemingly have allowed him to direct the search. What other conclusion can you reach?

    I pray for our people to find the strength and courage to stand up for something or be condemned for nothing.

      As a teenager I can relate to your fear. My fear however is entirely on a different level.

      I am seeing daily how Dominicans are becoming disgruntled with the current Labour administration….and i am talking about people who have supported labour all their lives.

      I fear that we are looking down the barrel of another 1980s style revolution in D/ca. I recently was in the company of few Police officers and was amaze at how easy they detail it was to bring D/ca under military rule…..It was like this was in the advance stages of planing.

      Scary stuff i tell you….Right now it is time to leave these beautiful shores….It is just not safe anymore.

Yeh, though you may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, fear no ill for God’s rod and staff they shall surely comfort you. Let the peace of God rest upon you,my brother. Selah!!!

  94. truth must prevail
    January 16, 2013

    Dominicans should never forget, always remember those recent events. Justice?

    The Chief Magistrate of the Court signed and issued a warrant to arrest Lawyer Isidore. That arrest warrant was submitted to the Police (Chief at the time?) Up to now Nada. Nothing. No arrest. Court Order disobeyed. But the same court granted Judicial Review in case (42 charges of fraud etc.) involving that same Lawyer that police should have arrested. That case stall.

    Remember Lawyer Emanuel had filed 42 charges of fraud and other corrupt practices against that Lawyer in question.

    Remember those famous, secret, controversial land deals that were exposed and those involved?

    Remember the initial denials, but when the truth was told, eventual kokomakak by the culprit/s and scamper to pay to the Treasury thousands defrauded? The truth forced it.

    No charges, no court action, no warrant to search. No arrest. No nothing. Justice on the back-back-backburner for the “Elite class.”

    “Scare tactics”
    “Victimization”
    “Public Mischief”
    “firebombs” against those patriots who fearlessly open the eyes of their fellowmen and women, could never deter them from the mission to speak the truth. “The TRUTH must be TOLD.”

    Dominica must be saved from the hooliganism, injustice, corrupt, massa-day, way of life.

    Quickly warrant to search Linton’s premises put into action/ executed. Those who are alledged to have committed serious offences, evidence, facts to prove available, the unjust system and operatives would not touch the “Massa”, “The few Big Boys.” The truth must prevail.

    The patriots continually evoke the spirits of our foreparents, Balla, Congoree, Angelique, Pharcelle, jupiter, Pierre Colaire, as we struggle against injustice.

    The teachings of Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther, Mahatma Ghandi and others spur us on in the fight against corruption in our land.

    DNO quoting M. Linton: “‘I was very happy to explain to the police how the document came into my possession, the source of the documents that are in my possession … I gave and the police received copies of the documents I had….'”

    I wonder if he told them that it was Tony Astaphan who handed them to him.

    For those who do not yet know this. This is what Section 21 of the IPO Act stipulates: “(4) An unauthorised person who publishes information which comes to his knowledge under subsection (1) commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of ten thousand dollars or one year imprisonment or to both such fine and
    imprisonment.”

    Subsection (1) reads: “(1) Every member and every person performing any function in the service or as an employee of the Commission shall treat all declarations, or information relating to such declarations as secret and confidential and shall not disclose or communicate to any unauthorised person or allow any such person to have access to any such declarations or information.”

    I totally disagree with the comments posted so far in support of Mr. Linton. Mr. Linton has information that came from a closed meeting and he chose to go onto a radio program he hosts to decimate that very information.

    The police or commission had no idea where this inforamtion came from, albeit someone at the meeting spoke outside of the meeting.

    Mr. Linton refuses to say where it came from and thus must be investigated.

    It is the same as handling stolen goods.

      That is a BLATANT, MALICIOUS AND DELIBERATE LIE! You damn lie he didn’t read anything from any private meeting. He read an email that Tony has admitted to sending himself, but also states his email is not the only source. If you can’t state the facts then hush.

Dominica is a totally screwed up country. They could have even pretended to search Anthony’s house. If that’s where Lennox said it came from, then follow that lead. Reminds me of the Denny Shillingford situation. He confessed to a crime, they refuse to believe then put him in jail on unrelated issues.

    Well, a complaint was made and the Police did what they are paid and retained to do. If there is mischief in all of this it will come to haunt the perpetrators. It is common knowledge that some Politicians in power are using this power against the people who placed them in power. They seem to forget, or do not know, that the substantive role of government is to protect the citizens. Where it is felt that government is not doing so, the collective discontent of the people will settle this wrongdoing once and for all. And it seem to me that Dominicans are getting there.

      He now need to explain 1. what was his objective in publicising Skerrit personal information and not Eddo and Ron Green or Hector John and 2. Who is the third party he got the information from, whether is via email or otherwise??

      Please don’t tell me the document was stamped ‘Copy” crap because the IPO may have well stamp ‘Copy’ on the documents they circulate to the Commissioners for discussion, the Original would have been filed away but not before “COPIES” are made for circulation at the meeting….

        Joe, why should mr. Linton hate Mr. Skerrit? it is far more likely he pities him. Mr. Linton can move around freely amongst the people, go and do his shopping as he wishes without the need for armed guards. He feels free to speak his mind. Is Mr. Skerrit able to do this, can he leave the gilded cage he built for himself? I now understand Mr. Skerrit’s outburst in the house of parliament when he said: “this country is too free” because he lost that freedom himself by being entrapped in the cocoon he made for himself.

    That was expected! Let’s see what happens here. Maybe Lennox will finally have to put his tail between his legs? I hope this is not an attempt by the authorities to instill fear in citizens who oppose them!

    Lennox you should be ready for whatever!

    Surprise surprise…. like he did not expect that. Does any one really think Lennox would keep his documents at his home??? Come on. This man is worst than Tony.

      A journalist, has a right to protect his informers, so why should he keep his file at home, dummy !!

    In the face of base retorts, malignity and character assination this man retains his DIGNITY and that impresses, regardless what side of the fence you are on. In the end this may well backfire on his detractors and reinforce mr. Linton’s public standing.

    I am only hoping that they go to the home and office of Tony too. ALthough by then he might get rid of all evideince because he know they went by Lennox. If if he hides it, I am hoping that the police and whoever have what it in them to take it even up to google’s level. I want to see if Tony really above the law in that d— country there. All you Saturday must come. We will give all you ba ba len.

    The police is acting like moose boys. If Lennox had any evidence that would and him in hot water wouldn’t he not dispose of this over the last two weeks? This police investigation is just another Espwa Malpapaii- destined to yield nothing unless the police really investigate Tony .
    So let Tony keep swimming with that rope around his neck and soon he will run out of feed rope and will end up in water so deep hs er drum will explode – in other words kitaiy pan coy.

    I would hate to think that the IPO email was the only one that Tony sent out . So Lennox if there is more let the people know

    Will the home of Tony be searched also? It’s also fair, after all he said on the public record..

    ” even if I sent the email, I am not the only source..”

    My interests in heightened in this matter of governance and national interest. May the chips fall where they may, but I trust that all that Linton endures will be served to those who have admitted their plot in setting up others

    well sa … is so it is in DA.. I would like to know how Skerrit and Tony would fear our if they were in the same positions in the UK and the US? What would they do? As a journalist Lennox Linton have the right to do what he’s doing..

    • Ebeh Weh

      In the UK or US, Tony would have been dis-barred long time ago and Skerrit would never have been voted into office in the first place.

      I totally agree! Get busy and start building the country instead of flapping your collective gums! All talk and no action. I am fed up with your collective empty barrel mentality. To quote President Kennedy..”ask what you can do for your country not what your country can do for you”. GET BUSY!!! The island is too small for all this petty politics. It is truly disheartening to see what is becoming of my island home – a political cesspool.
