Government will take action to preserve Dominica’s security – PM

Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said his government will not sit idly by and allow members of the United Workers Party (UWP) to invade the country’s security.

Skerrit was speaking on the heels of an alleged spy agency operating on the sixth Floor of the Financial Centre.

He said while the UWP is making “baseless” accusations they are in possession of confidential documents belonging to his office.

The Prime Minister said he is also concerned about documents from the government treasury that should not be part of the public domain.

He said government will continue to take actions to preserve Dominica’s security.

“They have documents that are supposed to be only in the office of the Prime Minister, only in the office of a minister, they have documents coming from the treasury. There are people in the treasury who take documents and give it to them and nobody is asking where they got the documents or how are you able to have these documents,” he said.

According to Skerrit, “for them that’s fine but if government has information or access to information that compromises them, and then they have a difficulty with it. Government is just supposed to stay there and roll with the punches and never respond. The moment we respond they have an issue with it.”

    skerritt if u think we are going to allow u to mess this country up more than u already have think again little boy.

    Mr. Skeritt you should start with Tony Astaphans. He was and is the one who puts out in the public the ills of your administration. Look deep within and you will see who threatens the security of Dominica and I’m sure you will find it’s not the UWP but those of your ilk.

I have criticized DNO in the past in the same way you have, but lately ive taken a look inward and always try to put a positive touch on my comments, or if something in posting seems a bit inflammatory then i find an abstract way to phrase it. try to post your comment again, but give it a little less spice and a little more Bitter Sweet..

    We need new leadership, with strong roots.. And a sound moral and ethical compass. Martin Luther reincarnated…. Someone who will secure the balance for all. in a truely transparent and democratic society, and we don’t have any candidates at present. So the people have to create relvolution to achieve that. we have to have an ERA of IDEAS and DISCOURSE to create a common NATIONAL VISION of what we can REALISTICLY aspire our country to become. Note: for the critics. Revolution does not always mean war or civil unrest. I can mean innovation in all areas, including politics. But I emphasize on industry and ideology…. We need to build a new way of doing things AS ONE PEOPLE, ONE NATION.

    In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    In my view a wise leader never acts in haste. He should assess the words of his critics as well as his supporters within his administration. If his supporters say something without insight he would correct them with wisdom and kind exhortation. Mr. Skerrit, ask yourself ‘did you act hastily?’

    Mr. Skerrit according to DNO you said, “government will continue to take actions to preserve Dominica’s security.” Do you take responsibility for that statement? If so, do the actions you intend to take will “tighten your grip” which mean sharpening your alleged “spy intelligence?”

    Mr. Skerrit, let us suppose you are right about confidentiality documents that belong to the state, do you believe in God? Are you aware He is All-Seeing? Are you aware that he can punish you in this life? Mr. Skerrit if you have been an honest man, did your job dutifully then you have absolutely nothing to worry about. However, if you were or are engaged in corrupt practice as it is alleged, have you any knowledge of past politicians who engaged in corrupt practices thus had a bitter end? The people of Dominica have been very patient with you. Do you not see in Australia a minister was allegedly corrupt he had to step down from office? Have you not read what happened in Italy with a minister who was involved with a 15 year old teen he had to step down? Do you not see Mr. Skerrit what happened to a senator in the United States recently, he had to come publicly then step down? There are many lessons and only leaders who have wisdom will learn. Additionally Mr. Skerrit did you learn anything from the ousting of Gaddafi, Mubarak and a few of them from the Middle East Mr. Skerrit? Will you take heed?

    Oh people of Dominica, I am a Muslim. Many of you hate us in your heart because of the way you were raised or what you choose to believe about us. You are Christians and there is no compulsion for you to change your religion to embrace Islam. The Master of the Day of Judgement will judge every soul without the slightest wrong. No matter our theological differences we are under the same administration. If as a people there is no collective interest for the common good and goals this nation will destroy within itself as well as foreigners will use this division against us. Be wise my people and open your eyes.

    Thank you
    Dawoud Abdur-Rahman Darroux.

    • I am a Dominican!!!!
      September 6, 2011

      Well said my brother!!! What we need is for our people to look at everything with the future of Dominica at heart and not with hatred and bitterness within them!!!!!! We need to look at what is best for Da and what is best for Da is a government which believes in and advocates and lives under the rule of law, the Constitution, and upholds that Constitution so as to be examples to its subjects!!!!! We need people who seek to develop for all DOMINICA, who seek progress for our country and its PRESENT citizens, those who are legitimate citizens by the way!!!!! We need people who are transparent, who are prepared to live a life of sacrifice to their nation and its people, not people who are looking for personal gain!!!! We need people who can demonstrate their willingness to sacrifice by living a HUMBLE LIFE WHILE IN SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY, NOT PEOPLE WHO WANT TO LIVE IN THE BIGGEST HOME, DRIVE THE NICEST CAR, LIVE IT UP AT THE EXPENSE OF THE STATE COFFERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We Dominicans need to examine ourselves and seek to understand our responsibility to our country to ensure that we seek people of the highest integrity to hold the reins of power and decision making or our beloved country will be overtaken by corruption and illwill and we will once again be slaves economically and otherwise, to foreign powers!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wake up my people, think for yourselves for you are capable!!!!!!!! Do not make money and material things prevent you from seeking the evry best for your country!!!! Ask questions always, of those in power for if you do not, you are nothing more than a fool!!!!!!!! Take heed my people, fight for what is right and just!!!! Love u Dominica!!!!!!!!!

Innocent law abiding people who share different political views from the ruling party are being illegally spied on… But the rogue regime is being weakened day by day,as some die hards are defecting and they are selling out the innumerable alleged corruption cases… I thought a PM would be busy doing the work of the nation and would not be answweering to Tom, Dick and Harry….WHAT A DICTATORSHIP!!!

    So you all not understanding what happening there then. The opposition have people working in the government houses and taking confidential document for their political mischief. The only way they knew that there is a spy agent is because they are not able to freely take these documents anymore. The government is on it. Hahaha, they were caught.

    The people taking these documents without permission has no legal rights to these documents and they should be prosecuted. That’s what should happen, they should be prosecuted according to the constitution of Dominica. Shame on the opposition supporting the retrieval of documents from the government.

    America is the biggest Democracy and they have the most spy organization…FBI–CIA…NSA…WIRETAPP…CAMERAS, VIDEO MONITORING DEVICES…

    And all of this is to protect the citizens of the USA.

    So unemployed talk show host and the government workers can’t hack, obtain bank information, persoonal stories, hospital records and blast people on radio in the name of DEMOCRACY.

    THIS HAS TO STOP AND HAS TO STOP NOW.

    Democracy is not asking Joe Blow to secretly take out from PSs and Mionister office IPO and then talk about it on radio.

    So for example, this group got 10 bags of cement for community day of service to do some patch work…it was an IPO. DO you know them fellas have that and have completely twisted 10 bags of cements for some cheap political game…

    Do you all people see the real danger here.

    But UWP fools in the their hatred of Roosevelt Skerrit, are blinded by logic…

Both for me, and my country. I do not intend to stay on a boat that headed right back to where it come from. Dread act, defense force, south African apartheid groups. Not me and not my children. 1979 will live FOREVER in me and those in my lineage. It will be their compass when many are lost. It is the most meaningful thing I can give to my children….MORE THAN MONEY AND THE NICE THINGS WE SOOOOOOOO COVET AND LUST AFTER.

    An intelligence service is a key component in the security apparatus of every modern state (the governments of the US, UK, Germany, Russia, France…. just to name a few, all operate such services) so there should be no secrets about the alleged intelligence unit on the sixth floor.

    I would not support eavesdropping operations on ordinary citizens just because they hold a different opinion to that of government, however, when there is a suspected threat to national security it is in a nations best interest to have the related information at the ready, the national security forces must be informed and always one step ahead of the source of that threat in order to avoid crisis, chaos, instability or tragedy.

    Within the constitution of the commonwealth of Dominica, there is freedom of speech clause, however that right is within the limits of the law. Is the prime minister attempting to uphold the law on behalf of all Dominicans? If there are some who continue to use their office of priviledge to avert that priviledge with baseless accusations against another party or persons, then is it within the jurisdiction of the office of the prime minister, to shed clarity on the law against those who violate the priviledge of free speech?
    If that is not the case, then the citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica can exercise a protest against the prime mimister for an abuse of power if that is deemed to be true. The legality of such will have be proven in a court of law.

    According to Skerrit, “for them that’s fine but if government has information or access to information that compromises them, and then they have a difficulty with it. Government is just supposed to stay there and roll with the punches and never respond. The moment we respond they have an issue with it.”

    Ok Mr. PM.. Let say We give you that argument that government having information on people and government release them… But wait..I thought this was a police NJIC under the police control and not government ministers control..oh but wait.. Tony Astaphan is the one who release the information on the Net…Tony is the government to na? See when you mix party politics with what the government needs to do.. that’s what happens.. !

    But Skerro, aren’t you contradicting what the Chief Cop said last week? He said the Police were spying only on known criminals! Now, you are defending your Government’s spying on UWP. Logic would conclude that the summation of your brief and that of the Chief Cop in that the UWP are criminals. Good for you, Skerrit!

    In your ignorance you would like that the PM apprises you of all information at all times. This is totally unrealistic. Documents for any office belongs to that office may it be a Doctor, lawyer, school, hospital and even more so government. There is such a thing as confidential matters. This small mindedness only seems to occur when you all want to lambase the Labour Party and it governance otherwise you all are quite sofisticated and worldly. STOP IT! The PM does not have to inform you of every one of his actions, when the time is right he will inform the country of any thing of pertinence. And you call him childish. Check yourself. Bunch of nosey people looking for fodder with which to nail him. A good leader, which the PM is, deals with matters by assessing the situation, planing action, performing the action then reassessing for maybe further action. Would you like him to tell every little thing? That would be childish and not prudent since we tend to border on hysteria with any thing related to the PM.He is the PM, let him do his job.

    You are so confused…..like a headless chicken…….
    The information on the documents coming from the treasury, and other Government Departments was not obtained through clandestine means sir….u are confirming that they are getting the info from insiders….you didnt say that the information is false or misleading.
    There are individuals working in the public service since u were playing marble hole…u think some people out there dont know about ethics? SO YOU REALLY THINK NOBODY WOULD DARE TO SELL YOU OUT?

This secrecy is the BASE of temptation for public officers, because nobody knows what is being executed…NO underhanded activities can go on when everything is in the light???? sorry PM is time to shine your light for the world to see. but instead i see is now darkness start. wait…. isn’t the treasury DOMINICANS own??? why don’t we have a right to know what is going on???? when all is said and done it is the PUBLIC taxes and affairs that go on in the treasury??? the officers there are Human and Dominican??? aren’t they?? they would be fair to feel victimized if they saw something wrong going on. it would be their patriotic DUTY TO BLOW THE WHISTLE??? PLEASE CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG……IF i am wrong. maybe we should outsource the treasury department to wherever…. then the people working within our treasury would have NO REASON TO CARE about what goes on in Dominicas treasury… God help Dominica..
