Dual citizenship appeal “fully filed”

Green

Former United Workers Party (UWP) leader Ron Green says all documents for an appeal against the dual citizenship case won in January by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Education Minister Peter St Jean have been “fully filed”.

“The lawyers are preparing for the appeal,” Green told Dominica News Online.

He reiterated that as far as the UWP was concerned  the case was “a very important matter for Dominica’s democracy”.

“It has already been very substantially delayed more than two years now since election and this matter is still unresolved so we are awaiting on the court,” Green said.

He is one of two defeated election candidates who went to court with an election petition seeking to overturn the election victories of Peter St Jean in the La Plaine constituency and Roosevelt Skerrit in the Vieille Case constituency.

Earlier this year, High Court judge Gertal Thom dismissed the petition, stating that Green had failed to establish his case that Peter  St Jean was by virtue of his own act under acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience or adherence to a foreign power or State.

St Jean won the La Plaine constituency in the 2009 general election, defeating Green.

The judge also ruled that another UWP election candidate, Maynard Joseph, had failed to show that Prime Minister Skerrit was by virtue of his own act under acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience or adherence to a foreign power of State.

Green has reiterated calls for the people of Dominica to contribute financially towards the case, arguing that it could help strengthen the country’s democracy.

    Waste of time and money shame on Ron Green and his cabal. They should be thinking about raising funds to build their party and this time to ensure they have a simple thing like a manifesto for their people.

    The U.W.P will come to a crashing halt if they continue this path of misguidance. How many court case after court case will you lose and millions of dollars down the drain and for what? Why don’t you raise that money for important projects to be done so that you can increase your populace for elections? Be positive and work for Dominica, stop this political diatribe and foolishness.

      these days I work for my children, not for Dominica. I just hope good god give me enough time to open a way out for them…so IF they feel to take a river bath, they can come here for two weeks and go back to wherever.

      Dominicans not ready…… they will sell their own people for rice.

    Ok…let’s supposed that in all fairness we are fighting for Dominica and its Constitution and its people. Why not start the fight by advocating for change – changes to the Constitution to make it more air tight? Why not advocate rephrasing that little section amongst others which is causing so much angst?

    Who pays for these lawsuits? Who’s going to feel the brunt of this appeal? How are Dominicans supposed to get past this state of divisiveness that is so prevalent among us? Shouldn’t the best interest of Dominica and Dominicans be represented – if the fight is for their interest? What’s in the best interest of Dominicans – a lawsuit which takes away from fighting for important issues, a bill most likely funded by the public purse?

    In the interest of Dominica and Dominicans… fight for justice, freedom, the future – but fight the good fight where inroads can be taken, steps can be made and a foundation can be built.

    Sometimes – some good fights have to be abandoned so that better fights may be won. In this case, in the interest of Dominica – perhaps the better fight maybe in the cost effective means of reviewing the Constitution or just simply this section and fixing it so that hence forth – there can be no misunderstanding, no discrepancy on who can and can’t, what does and doesn’t go with the law or against the law.

    The decision to not appeal does not always mean that one believes that one has lost – it just means that continuing the fight means that there is much more at stake than the appellant winning the case.

    Food for thought……

    I just don’t want to see Dominicans get caught up in these political diatribes which they are famous for. It’s time we work together and build Dominica instead of constantly destroying Dominicans in an effort for political gain.

    Let the polls speak for themselves – after all – the next elections are right around the corner.

      I am somewhat with you on that one, however you must understand that UNLESS this man has reconciled this, HUMBLED himself and acknowledge his err, he is NOT suitable to lead us through the constitutional changes that you speak of…..

      it’s like king james…. certain parts of the bible didn’t suit him so he change it to suit his selfish purpose….

      the point is, WE are the ones responsible for self determination, we are DEAD if we relinquish this duty to any ONE MAN…..

      we have to realize that this issue will affect future generations of Dominicans COLLECTIVELY…it is not just a blazay blah issue…it is KEY to our sovereignty….

      skerrit just passing unno, he will not live forever…..however the decisions we make now our grandchildren will have to live with it. once is is written it is THAT MUCH MORE difficult to change it……

      but I dont think Dominicans really care, they just living for today….

    Dominicans. you people hatred will consume you, If Ron green got a warning from N.E.R.C and came and told you all that a volcano was going to erupt in the valley, you all would perish!! Though the man has done wrong, you all are missing the POINT!! while you, for the lack of a better word, FOOLS, are heckling Mr.Green and the UWpWEE, another culprit is escaping with all the spoils…… SMH what a sad bunch you all are……no wonder crime is rampant…..if you cannot correct your sons at home….why should I think you can correct them in HIGH OFFICE….well guys we will hear what song you will sing about skerrit tomorrow…..he will be the next ron green, because we failed to correct the siutation when it was time….we were too busy killing the messanger, playing hypocrite, being blind deaf and dumb….. sad dominicans, (notice i didn’t say labourites) I said DOMINICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    any honest Dominican can see the facts, both ron green and RMS are guilty…. I hurts me to see how low my countrymen can stoop, I agree that ron did “the same thing” but if it is “LIKE MOST SAY” a case of the pot calling the kettle black…then won’t it also be fair to say the both of the gentlemen are wrong….to me this is like the gay story on the bayfront the other day…

    I dont think that Mr. Skerrit has put Dominica first in this instance….. I think it was selfish of him to turn down the opportunity to lay all this to rest…. those who are shouting horray for the PM are denying Dominicans peace and tranquility by closure of this matter once and for all…. if this was a case of the constitution Vs RMS it would be glaring how unpatriotic we are.

    my former educator may have purchased the honor of many, but not me….I always say, If he had just presented the evidence…..frenchman or not, he would have my vote ANY DAY!!!!!!!!

    It would have been a total display of fortitude for him to have just come out and knock the air out of the oppositions sails….

    “i had the french citizenship, I revoked it to serve my country, so the opposition can hold it against me if they want” BAM…….Bi election

    skerrit retains his position, and all controversy ends and life goes on peaceful in our beautiful island…… but the amount of guile and craft being used to manipulate the truth here is just frightening…..I cannot and will not trust this man….end of story

  7. No evidence?
    April 17, 2012

    The French passport, which was the main evidence to prove dual citizenship, was not admitted in court. Why would those involved not want to show Dominicans and the world that they possess French Citizenship or not? Why would the judge not want the passports in court as evidence? Afraid to take the stand, for fear that, through questioning they would be found not to be speaking the truth? Afraid to show the Passports? And then the judge concludes that the petitioners did not have evidence?

    Why fear the truth? Let the truth set all of us free. No country could be said to be on a democratic path by allowing its Constitution to be savaged. No country should allow any politician or public/private citizens to flaunt or disobey the Law. How could any Leader of any peaceful, civilized country boast that no Law, not even the Constitution could prevent him from being nominated in the circumstances before us. In other instances, other actions re. Bad governance, secret deals, Secret Ambassadorial appointments and other irresponsible acts, no law could prevent Big Boys from also doing what they want?

    Balla, Congoree, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther king, Nelson Mandela and all those who fought for their rights and justice, for respect for the laws and Constitution, who fought against corruption, inequality, injustice, were wrong to do so?

Mr Green you can fight for justice BUT Edo and the rest don’t want you on board with them. That’s why they asked you to step down and you are always used as the scape goat to talk about things that are of no relevance.

      You can tell unemployment is a serious issue in Dominica, because some of them accept pay to just sit and post these crap all day.

      If you follow the stories on DNO, you would have noticed that any story concerning the UWP receive the same type of treatment presumably by the same paid posters.

      They even talk about shame on Ron Green, when really the shame is on them…..not even that they can see….lol

    Reading the comments here suggest one thing and one thing only….Dominica is in big trouble!

    If you people think the integrity of the constitution of Dominica ain’t worth fighting for, then we need to ask motherland to kindly accept us back, or else, we will be very close to Syria in a few years to come.

    Dominicans need to grow politically, and unless we can get out of this kindergarden politics, we will continue to suffer and our children children will feel the pain.

    I think the major problem is, you all do not understand the issue. It would be far better to admit that than to keep posting these nonesensical comments again and again.

    Dominicans grow up, open your minds and understand the issues around you. Open up your minds, read a book, watch the news and I am not talking about marpin and GIS, try to get hooked on to the BBC, CNN, Euro, Al Jazeera. Dominica is in no vacuum, when wall street came crashing down in 2008 we felt it hard and we will be feeling it much longer than many countries.

    Get your heads off the sand, and educate yourselves so you can pass on some serious wisdom to your children, because we really do not want dumb and dumber on stage.

    Dominicans, Dominicans, get serious about your country and your country politics!

    In life, some win and some lose. This is how the ball rolls. Some people do not accept defeat well. Envious? :mrgreen: He will not live and let live. We could also say, leave and let live.
    This is going on for sometime. The case was called. The PM was acquitted. Leave well alone and cease dividing the people of Dominica.
    Some people act as if today, tomorrow and the future is theirs; that they govern the world and people. Why should Dominicans who are employed contribute their hard-earned few dollars to pursue a case which is already acquitted and closed?
    Ron, why re-open this case? Why stir up trouble and to spend an exorbitant sum of money? Let it be and do your utmost, also for your health and longevity to live your life happily and peacefully and contribute to doing good in Dominica and among Dominicans.
    Are you a godly person and a practicing Christian? Consider the Lord and what will Jesus say about you (WWJS)? He has said, forgive and forget once and for all. This is what you should do. Do not make an enemy or any more and continue your dislike and hatred of the PM and St.Jean. They have not harmed you. Be loving and kind. Pray to God so that He can release you of this type of adverse feeling which He does not approve of. May God assist you accordingly.

        @ natural living,that is the problem with the UWP supportors. They are forever insuniating that the majority of Dominicans are “stupid.” These continuous insults on the same people you want to support UWP actions is not going to work. It is very obvious that Ron’s motives are not about the integrity or upholding Dominica’s constituion but about wanting power at any cost.

        @No Affiliated……obviously u don’t understand the comment….I have never voted uwp and don’t think I ever will, particularly with the direction they have been moving…but the comment that I responded to was that it does not matter who is in power,the integrity of our constitution should be protected…and most people in Dominica can’t look beyond the party we support …..now if u think that I must be a supporter of the uwp to criticize my govt or my people well there is the problem….you have proven my point exactly….you are so busy trying to determine who I am supporting and not listening to what I am saying….very willing to listen to you regardless of who u support….who u support does not matter…as long as u are providing your honest opinion….

    Its time ron let that go. And the poor people dat contributing to that because of allegiance to this party need to ask christian, athie , linton, angelo and mat to take that money and start a secure high interest fund that can provide for medical, funeral and all other emergency needs they may have

      Ask Skerrit to give young people a chance.Ron is not Dominica’s leader. Are you illiterate? Go to night school nah! Tell your God all the advisers he has approaching 100years send them home,employ young people, on boards and other government run institutions. It’s not the esteemed Ron Green that can do that for you, it’s your God. On Wednesday go and grovel to the Red Clinic as if you are dying, and while stretching your hand tell your God to grant young people a favouror chance by employing them.

        If you talk about God why you hate skerrit so? Why do you belittle your brother by asking if he is illiterate. Don’t you think that you should offer to stretch your hand to pass on some of your education that papa God gave you?

      April 16, 2012

      @The Truth – Why some of all you pretending to be so concerned about the UWP policies in developing Dominica nah? The UWP was in power from 1995 – 2000 moving the country forward with progressive projects and polices yet the nation deliberately heeded the call to ignore the UWP’s performance and instead vote out the UWP on blind allegations of corruption which after 12 years are yet to be proven by this backward thinking government.

      Now blatant bold face corruption is going on in plain site but the population this time has deliberately chosen to close their eyes to the corruption in this government and instead focus on perceived ‘development’ by this government.

      This past 12 years have been a classic example of a case of advanced high grade hypocrisy by a large segment of the population.

        Channel 1, if, as you claim, there is so much «bold face corruption», it should be very easy to prove it. No? How then do you explain the UWPwee’s inability to do so?

        Dominicans loved Eugenia! Dominicans loved Rosie! Dominicans love Skerritt!! Dominicans DO NOT love and NEVER WILL love Edison James. It’s a tough reality but it is the reality. Forget all this talk about failed policies, court battles and corruption. Eddo has failed the “likability” test and sadly the UWP will continue to lose support so long as he is seen as the face of the party. Policy and powder cannot fix that.

        April 17, 2012

        @Reader I want to add at point Dominican loved Leblanc. They loved Perro, and Dominican loved PJ too. I question why Edo never foster the love that these other leaders had among the majority of Dominicans nationally.
