Dominica’s economic citizenship programme transparent – PM

Skerrit

Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt has described as a very transparent arrangement, Dominica’s economic citizenship programme which has been criticized by activists here and abroad.

Following calls for a commission of inquiry into the programme by an overseas-based group of “patriots”, the prime minister told DNO there was no need for such a probe because the government had nothing to hide in relation to what critics suggest is the indiscriminate selling of Dominican passports to “unscrupulous” characters on the international market.

“Commission of inquiry into what, what are the irregularities, this is a very transparent arrangement, the procedure is published on our website, the agents are published on our website,” the prime minister responded.

He said all the money raised from the programme is audited by the Director of Audit and submitted to the parliament.

According to the prime minister, every single cent raised under the programme has been accounted for.

He also rejected as baseless suggestions that he was personally involved in the sale of Dominican passports.

“How do I sell passports,  all the passports are issued by the immigration department,” PM Skerrit explained.

“This is total nonsense, I deny it categorically,” he countered when asked directly by DNO whether he was personally selling passports.

He also rubbished claims that notorious Indian national Ibrahim Darwood was in possession of a Dominican passport.

“This has been categorically denied, there is no fact to show that Darwood Ibrahim has ever received a passport from us,” the prime minister said.

He added that other related claims were part of a smear campaign against his administration and had no merit.

    Why not give the investors a visa that they could renew every 2 years, 5 years or 10 years. I have never heard of investors becoming citizen of a country just because they are interested in investing there. It’s like selling the economic citizenship to anyone who is financially stable and that person having another agenda in mind – like travelling to the USA or CANADA which they had difficulty in doing so from their home country.

    “If you succeeded to pass a preliminary check by your promoter and due diligence vetting procedure by a detective agency, which are undertaken in the first turn, we do not expect you to be turned down by the Government. As soon as the detective agency reports positively, your application is submitted to the Government and you are invited for a personal interview. After the interview you’ll have to wait for up to 30 days for the paperwork to be finalized and you are issued your certification of naturalization and passport.

    The whole process up to the final resolution normally takes as much as 3 to 5 months depending on the case. Most time is necessary for the due diligence procedures, so it mostly depends on your particular circumstances.” – http://www.isla-offshore.com/second-passport/dominica-best-choice-for-economic-citizenship/

    That seems a way too easy route for becoming an economic citizen of Dominica…

    Stop the hating.

    Political parties don’t rise to power on their own free will. The people must elect them.

    There’s an old adage ‘That what goes up must come down’.

    Nothing lasts forever but history do repeat itself.

    Always remember that what gets on a horse’s back must end up under it’s belly.

    Seriously. Did anyone expect the PM to say otherwise? Procedures on website? Christ, man. Everyone has a procedure for everything. What does procedures have to do with irregularities? You could have the most airtight procedures and not follow them. This guy thinks that Kubulians are idiots who are willing to swallow the bitter pill without questioning things. You could account for all the money, but the manner in which it was attained, and to whom the passports are sold are some of the issues at hand. We want to know if the process is vetted/background checked, etc.

    We are not in the sandbox in kindergarten. We are not following the Pied Piper.

    We need an independent audit. One chosen outside of the PM’s sphere of influence.

    It is serious. Is there a problem DNO? There must be. I have posted several comments recently, non-libelous, non-derogatory, genuine comments. Not one has been accepted. I say so because I have read some comments and wonder why mine is being deleted. Something must be happening. Strange but True. Any explanation why my honest, genuine simple comments are rejected on DNO recently?

    Imagine someone who is lightskinned and does not look typically Dominican,was passing through st.Marteen and the immigration officer asked him how much he paid for his Dominican passport? This is a true story which happened a few years ago. So who is Skerrit fooling????

  12. answers needed
    January 16, 2012

    HOW MANY PASSPORTS, DIPLOMATIC AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN SOLD in the last decade? How much have the Treasury received? In what areas have investments been made as a result of that misnamed ECP? Who benefits? Those are genuine questions that the people need answers to. Nothing less. No answers would mean NO TRANSPARENCY or ACCOUNTABILITY?

    This is the most ridiculous interview I have read. There are no facts supporting Skerit’s “rubbish claims.” It’s a fact that we sell passports, look at the Canada issue. To this day the PM can’t produce what is requested from his administration.
    1. How many passports were sold.
    2. How much revenue was generated from the sale of those passports.
    3. What were these funds applied too?

    We still waiting Mr. PM.

    I would like to know how many of us DOMINICANS,who have more than one passpor?
    Is it a crime to have more than one passport?
    To my pm,you are the leader of our country.
    I am not the one to judge you.Continue to do what is right in the best interest of your people.Development in Dominica is eye opening now.Tell satan get behind me satan and move on.We are not perfect in the eyes of god.So all who want to judge you let them do so.Have mercy on them lord for they do not know what they are saying and doing.Fear not.Love them like your self and god will see you through.

  15. Trans what?
    January 16, 2012

    Trans-Child not Trans-Parent.
    Opaque means can’t see through. But transparent means can see through; above board. Would DNO and the Dominican people truely conclude that the sale of our property, our passports, is open for all to know about and see? Come on. It is the patriots of Dominica who have been uncovering, producing facts, hard evidence, and informing the Public of several deals that have been very questionable. Media houses are even afraid in some instances to investigate, do research and find out the real TRUTH of those matters that are surfacing from time to time as regards those sales of our sacred property, our passports.

    There are numerous examples of things that have gone wrong with the sale of our passports. What Economic Citizenship Programme? That’s a misnomer. The country could raise revenues by serious investments in the productive sectors. The sale of our passports only benefit a FEW. The country is finding itself in more problems regionally and internationally with that policy.

    With proper planning and the will to work hard, as well as making proper use of our natural resources and riches, we could do better for the benefit of all Dominicans. A few are reaping huge sums Big Time with those sales of passports while the standard of living of the majority goes down and down and down.

    Where are the investments in the economy from those sales of passports? Please show us. DNO could find out and detail those for the readers. How much money raised so far from those sales? Who have received diplomatic passports and how much was paid to the Treasury? Which non-Dominicans have received our diplomatic passports, have been appointed Dominica’s Ambassadors, but the receiving countries have rejected them as our ambassadors? We should not about those things? So much for TRANSPARENCY.

    As a citizen don’t I have the RIGHT to ask my Govt. or couldn’t DNO ask on behalf of the people? Our Constitution guarantees us the Right to seek, request and impart information.

    Are my comments libelous or derogatory DNO?

  16. January 16, 2012

    Skeritt dont have to appear on no show, and all these negative comments that you all have on this site is not good because you all well know that foreigners read your nonesense and will be turned off. There is no party that can run DA like the DLP headed by PM SKERITT.

    People let’s be fair, even as hard as i know that is for humans. If Dominica is so poor as some claim is it this PM/government that bring it so? Ever since, i have always heard some say here is very poor or the poorest while there are others who say it is paradise and doing well. Which is it? In my view Dominica has always had it’s challenges from the beginning and it has never been no easy fix. We need someone who is honest with a historical background to tell us why, i have a clue. Dominica’s problems are beyond politicians, well that’s if at all it has as much problems as some people claim. What may seem to be problem may not be but rather what we see all other countries have we want, and care less how they got it and how we will.

    they boast of having a illegal Prime Minister and a evil spin Doctor,,so its Dominica what do you expect from that island..

    In the end they are globally known as the Poorest in the Eastern Caribbean, so that basically tells you that their not too concerned about governance and aspects of upholding law and order they pretty much a blinging society who cares less..

    All they do is call the radio programs, no actions at all…Dominica is indeed a failed and highly corrupted Caribbean island..

    I am uneasy about this economic citizenship business, especially when we don’t have any information on the beneficiaries of this economic citizenship programme. At least we need statistics to back up these claims of transparency…for instance, number of passports issued annually and total revenue etc….

      This nonesense should cease immediately.Why should someone who has never set foot in my country nor even understand my countrys’ culture be given such a document? I had to prove i was a law abbiding person and take a test before i was granted United States citizenship. Why do we give away such a document in the name of economic citizenship?I was against it in the time of the late M.E Charles and is still against it today.I would like to see all political parties sign an agreement to scrap it if they get elected in the next elections. Although irrepearable damages can be done before that time.Lets pray.

    From one melee to the next, Last week was citizenship…the courrt has rendered it’s verdict now this week is the Passport issue
    Who is hurting in all this confusionthe land that we all claim we love..DOMINICA
    If Skerrit sell passport
    go to the Immigration find out how many
    passports were sold and take it from there.
    There is so much to be done..when just when are we going to unite to help Dominica. In the meantime crimes continue to increase
    Dominica is fast becoming infested with drugs
    people need to get together to attract new industries so people could be employed.
    I see eveyone promiting their own Agendathe less of fortunate are suffering. My advice to

    here is the thing,the prime minister does not have accept any interview from DNO or any other news media,based on this case, because this are very serious accusations, the (PM) has to continue to pursue the prosecution of this so called patriots so this matter can be settled in court,what does DNO or any other news media expect the prime minister to disclose to them,he can’t,on advise from his attorney,he can not disclose anything that can be used against him,so it is futile to seek any information from the (PM)at this point,and in terms of inquiry,i totally agree with him,he is already being accused,it is to late for that,i say take them to court,so somebody can be made to pay for there forwardness,it about time an example is made,for all who wannabe mouthpiece for all dominicans,speak for yourself’s,there is not an opinion pool,that is accusing the (PM)of corruption,it is a disgruntled few,the rest of us want our day in the courts of justice,simple as that.

What is interesting to me is the fact that he the PM spoke to DNO. Did DNO ask the PM the obvious questions? Did the PM speak to DNO because he is fully aware that like Kairi and DBS DNO dare not apply the pressure.
    We are fully aware that the PM will not talk to a media house who will stand on the side of truth and question the inconsistencies in the ECP.

    When Isidore sue Lennox Linton or tell us that he absolutely did not make arrangements with a French man to for 2 million US dollars; then there is the Bobbi Wahi case that Tony said you stopped abruptly but now we know why – Mr PM come out and deny the emails between the passpiort agents , the Hartley Henry involvement etc; Mr PM deny the Indian ambassador who was by passed by the Indian authorities who was seeking MR Karan Singh; there is a treasure trove of information that you never thought or you were to stupid to think that this information would not be out there.
    If the operation was transparent why we had to find out about Corello through a criminal matter; what about Rudolph King Mr PM; What about the $400,000 transaction at the airport that Tony admitted; Keep lying- Tony admitted to the Bobbi wahi deal but there is more to come including the diplomats at UNESCO.

    Finally prove to us that the government is transparent and provide a list of all the passports sold and the money collected. These are the hard questions that DNO , Curtis Mathew and the other kiss yup journalists must ask the PM and the government of Tony Astaphan.

        That have been going on since in the time of Patrick John followed by Mamo,and now PM Skerrit, at least from my time growing up.

        We have to many people who are party boom Boom fly who only see red , Blue and green. This country is to divided, full of hatred , and wickedness in high places.

        You have those in washington who will go at all course to destroy the PM for thire own selfish needs while the country name is tarnish worldwide by those interlecturals,

        if the government do something good praise they but all you hear frome them is only negative vibs about the PM . why you should you hate your countryman with such bitterness. The electorates masses think otherwise.

      How about an order gets passed up from on high. You’re not supposed to ask questions or you could risk losing your job. Most people would keep quiet because they are afraid of the consequences. This is the main reason why so much corruption can go on without anyone on the outside being able to see it clearly. Those on the inside are either in on the game or being intimidated into participating.

      On another note what does “This has been categorically denied” really mean?

      I was there. He didn’t say “Let’s make a deal.” He said “Who wants to be a millionaire?”

      We thought we were going “Dancing with the Stars” but they told us we were on “Candid Camera” and we got “Punk’d”

      I ran out of there screaming “I’m a calebrity! Get me out of here!”

      Now you know “Dominica’s got talent” even if they are all parading as patriots vying for a spot on “The last comic standing” in Washington DC.

    PM Skerrit, with all due respect, you really need to quit while you are ahead. If the process was as transparent as you would like us to believe you would attempt to answer our questions and show us evidence to refute these allegations floating around but you want us to accept your submissions because you said so? Just end the circus and stop insulting our intelligence.

      So right now the accused have to provide evidence to refute allegations and to the accuser bringing forth evidence to support his claim. I guess the rule of law is for some in DA.

      May i suggest that we check with immigration, the director of audit and all other places where pasport records are kept as a start to an investigation into these allegations being brought against the PM?

      There is also something called confidentiality of information. To prove anything about that program, some confidential files would have to be revealed.
