Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has challenged Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit to come clean about his relationship with Chinese billionaire, Ng Lap Seng, who was recently arrested in New York in a UN bribery scandal.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Linton said the Dominican leader owes it to the people to speak out on the matter.

“If diplomats of Caribbean countries are being jailed in the US for involvement with Ng Lap Seng’s so called wide ranging corruption schemes, Mr. Skerrit owes it to the people of Dominica to come clean and set the record straight without fear of contradiction from anybody anywhere in the world that he has nothing to do with any corruption scheme operated by Seng, which is likely to land him in jail in the US as John Ashe is in jail, as Francis Lorenzo is in jail, as Seng himself is in jail for violating US law on corruption, racketeering, money laundering etc… Linton said.

Seng was arrested about two weeks ago and a federal prosecutor has charged him with playing a central role in a $1.3 million bribery scheme to corrupt a former president of the United Nations General Assembly. Former Antiguan diplomat, John Ashe, and Francis Lorenzo, a diplomat from the Dominican Republic, were also ensnared in the matter.

The Opposition Leader said if Skerrit chooses, he may want to consider waiving his immunities to clear his name.

“If it is sufficiently important to him, he may want to consider waiving whatever immunities that he may have so that the investigators can clear his name as a fitting, proper person to be leading Dominica in this time of very serious national reconstruction,” he stated. “This is a time in which we have to face the global community and make a success of assembling $1.3 billion we need …it is not going to materialize in the volumes that we would like to see if there are question marks about our leadership, and clouds hanging over the head of our leadership.”

Linton is also calling on the Dominican populace to “demand” that Skerrit comes clean and is also questioning whether there are any risks for the country as it seeks to raise the over $1.3 billion needed to put the country back on its feet.

The Opposition Leader, in addition, pointed out that on the 25th August 2015, two days before the Tropical Storm Erika, Skerrit was in Macau attending a meeting in the US South, South Conference at which the three men were in attendance.

What’s more, he revealed, was that the Prime Minister met and was seen holding hands in the cutting of a cake in a function organized or sponsored by Seng’s Foundation.

Linton also claimed that a deal was signed by Skerrit with Seng during that time and a representative of the South South Conference for the establishment of a South South transfer center for the Caribbean and Latin America to be located in Dominica.

Moreover, the Opposition Leader pointed  out that the Prime Minister was also on record in a commercial court of the BVI in July of 2009 establishing a relationship with Seng.

“To the extent that at the time he was willing to ask Mr. Woo [Seng] US$20 million that would be used to replace the $20 million that Mr. Skerrit claimed in the BVI court, Dominicans feared had been swindled from Chinese Investor Mr. Phillip Cheng,” Linton said.

    Lennox get a life. Unlike you the PM is a busy man and has a lot of work to do. Go and find work to do and stop being and ideal man and a nuisance. Who do you think you are? You are NObody. The PM doesn’t have time among his busy schedule doing important things to respond to the everyday nonsense you come up with. You are like a bad diarrhea that wouldn’t go away.

    I have a feeling all Dominicans going to be in Jail because is so the Leader of the Opposition want we, because whether we UWP, Freedom, or DLP supporters, or even undecided ones, our PM working for all Dominicans. Praise God. A man for all the people.

    The only man that will remain in Dominica is the LOP because he is the only man in Dominica who may not had any contact or business with the Honourable PM.

    But wait a while we know for sure from the man himself that at least on one occasion in his lifetime the same PM he hates so much did help him when he was being deported from Antigua and avoided a jail cell? OMG him too the PM helped?

    Bondieu that means even him could be called to testify as to whether the PM ever helped him? Papamet the glimmer of hope that if no one was left on the Isle of Beauty, Isle of Splendor he would be PM, just got washed away and not by TS Erika.

    Lord forgive those who trespass against us and cover our PM with your love & protection.

    Linton you’re becoming public nuisance number one. You’ve been singing the same old boring and tedious song for too long, you’re like a stucked record and becoming an embarrassment. Court case after court case you and your party loose, election after election you loose. You need to go back to the drawing board, but I suspect that you won’t do that, because you and your supporters blame everyone and everything for your defeat and are in total denial about your inability to effectively provide credible opposition. So please Linton for the sake of your sanity give up the ghost and retire from public office and do us all a favour from having to hear your relentless attack on the good and great PM in whose shoe you could never, ever walk. Jealousy and envy is a terrible trait it eats away like a cancer.

    Is it a sin to be extremely jealous of another person’s wealth and status??? Being jealous to a point that you would wish for a person to be taken from their family and friends and to be locked up in a steel cage is bordering on obsession. The novice has poisoned the hearts and minds of many Dominicans with a spirit of envy and jealousy. He watches the great wealth and prosperity, the overwhelming support and love, the success and achievements of the most precious and beloved Prime Minister, the right and honourable, esteemed Knight of the Most Holy Roman Catholic Church, Dr. Roosevelt M. Skerrit and burns with envy wishing he (the novice) could be in His (the most loved Dr. Skerrit’s) shoes. NG Lap Seng was indeed a friend of the Prime Minister. He is a billionaire investor who admired Dr. Skerrit’s leadership and power. Lap Seng’s arrest has nothing to do with Dr. Skerrit whatsoever. Lap Seng was arrested due to his own ambitions. Leave Dominica’s King and Saviour alone!

      I see Skerrit has bought you another computer so that you can return here and talk baloney!

      Anybody in their right mind who would be jealous of Skerrit because of one thing or another is a fool; because under certain circumstance Skerrit could find himself in Jail in the interim!

      Why should one jealous someone with Skerrit’s shady reputation?

      If you all are not talking about how people hate Skerrit, your twisted mind leads you to focus on jealousy, you need to remember the same people who place Skerrit on his pedestal, can rip it out from under his backside any day of the week. All it will take to do that is an uprising in the country and your kind are the ones going to cause that to happen.

    Here’s a tidbit of information that will surely amaze the Uneducated Wicked People in opposition, their novice leader, elected members, party affiliates and ignorant supporters. His Holiness, the Handsome, Charismatic and Beloved Supreme Leader, Dr. Roosevelt M. Skerrit listens to a certain radio station that supports and disseminates the propaganda, the ravings and rantings and the outright lies of the United Wicked People in opposition. He, the great Supreme Leader, also reads Dominica News Online!!!! Top loyal and dedicated Labourites will tell you that the Supreme Leader listens to and reads the foolishness coming from the likes of the novice and the propagandists who naively refer to themselves as “investigative journalists”. When, however, they believe that they have the Supreme Leader worrying and under stress he is actually laughing hysterically at the sheer level of ignorance displayed by a small fraction of our society. They call for protests and ten people show up…

    The Uneducated Wicked People’s quest to bring down the highly blessed and most loved Supreme Leader, the right and Honourable Prime Minister, Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit, through numerous witch hunts, unfounded accusations and innuendos will NEVER work! Our dear and precious Prime Minister, His Holiness, has numerous friends whom are reported to be some of the wealthiest individuals in the world. These individuals are attracted by the charisma, charm, professionalism and high moral character of the great and wonderful Dr. R.M. Skerrit. They look to being in his company for legitimacy as he (Dr. Roosevelt M. Skerrit) is one of, if not the most, loved and respected leaders throughout the world. Being in the Supreme Leader’s company allows these millionaires and billionaires to be seen rubbing shoulders with a leader who has an almost Christ-like following and support in his Island-Nation. The Supreme Leader is not guilty of anything besides being GREAT!!!!

      I thought you stop smoking; hence, you came to your senses and stop talking rubbish! You are calling people uneducated. Tell us the name of the collage or University where “Me Almost Nearly Cousin Roosevelt Skerrit, that that Mountain Chicken Crapo Brain Mentality graduated from.

      Haven’t you heard he claimed to have graduated from a certain university with an English Major, however, when we search for records, the university concludes they never had anybody name Roosevelt Skerrit who graduate from their university.

      Stop boasting Skerrit’s Education which he does not have and tell us about your own education!

    I agree with Mr Linton, The P.M. could be or maybe be indicted by the U.S. attorney office. but the will keep the indictment, secret and or sealed for years. The issue is his photo and names has been posted all over the world. When a persons arrested by U.S. attorney Bharara and your picture is seen by the world with the arrested cutting cake. Its make the P.M. appear tainted. Other world leaders and investors, will free uneasy talking to the P.M. fearing, he could be cooperating with the U.S. attorney or the will become caught up into the investigation. The P.M. said he is about to travel overseas to help get funds to rebuilt dominica. Let see how many trips he makes. and who will be taking photos with him. The P.M. should come clean. Or asked the U.S. attorney office to clear his name.

    Lennox, Your wish to become the PM of Dominica shall never ever materialize. Not even after Mamie and Pappy’s death. What you think even if something is to happen to the PM you are going to take his place? Man you really have esqua mal papi.. What does the PM has to really come clean about? what crime did he commit? What did he take of yours? Lennox you are tormented and deserve prayer. You are a troubled person. I wonder how do you really sleep at nights. Why should Skerrit’s name be the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night to be on your mind? Why all that hate and jealousy for one man? What has Skerrit done to you, you want to see him fall so badly? Be careful what you are asking for because it may well fall back at you. And by the way the PM owes you Lennox and UWP NaDa.. Nothing.

      This level of ignorance simply pisses me off. Mr Linton is the Leader of the Opposition. That position is there for a reason. It is to scrutinize and keep those in authority in check (transparency and accountability of revenue and expenditure) as we develop our nation. Our constitution stipulates the protection of the freedom of expression; let the man do his job. The PM doesn’t simply owe it to the leader of the opposition, but to the people of Dominica. There is simply no transparency in this administration and majority of Dominicans seem to be quite fine with that which is very disconcerting.

      • October 10, 2015

        @ JetaimevousmonJaisee

        My comment was directed at the comments made by “KID ON THE BLOCK” about “Lennox being tormented and deserving of prayer” and so forth. In my opinion, it is Mr Linton’s duty to ask questions without having to be accused of being jealous of the PM or hating him in any way; which I’m sure is not the case. The PM is innocent until proven otherwise but he is answerable to the nation since this is a democratic country. This is the case all throughout the Caribbean so I don’t know why Dominicans want it otherwise.

        Linton is scandalizing the PM’s name. He is also scandalizing Dominica and its nationals; no exception himself. He was too quick to beat his mouth and ask the PM to come clean. This means he suspected the PM of wrong doing. Linton should be sued.

        The PM was among some high profile people as himself, being the D/ca Prime Minister. He got to know them and happened to be near them. He, a PM of a small country, they liked him enough to ask him to cut the cake. Does it mean that he is practicing some shady business with them?
        As I have stated, it is my strong belief that the PM only knew Ng as a billionaire investor and was not aware of Ng and the other men’s reputation.
        Do you think that Ng will come out and inform the PM that he is involved in bribery? Do you think he trusts the PM enough to keep this private and not divulge it to others?
        People as Ng do not go about informing others of their undercover deals. They will pose as billionaires and invest in some businesses worldwide. They may see an opportunity to invest in D/ca which the PM would accept. They know who they will confide in; certainly not someone whom they recently met.
        I do think where the PM is concerned, this is all he knows about Ng

We are Dominicans, I know we would and my language is tame compared to what some of us might say to RS.

    “Residing in Canada, I recall when I first read about Sanford from Texas and that he had a football (?) field built in Antigua and performed other good works. I was suspicious of him and wondered where did he get the money.”(Facts).

    Poor fool, Sanford is a thief now serving more than twenty years in jail, twenty-five years is life, he may die in Jail! For your information he did not build a football field in Antigua, he operated a Bank at Coolidge right at the entrance of the V . C. Bird International Airport.

    Right next to the Airport, he built a Cricket stadium, and cricket field! You lie so much you cannot get anything straight!

    Stanford is a very poor example, because he is a thief, a criminal! Your idol is in jail spending time for ripping off people’s money!

      Mr. Telemaque

      As far as I am concerned if people get themselves involved in corrupt acts, whoever they may be they must face the consequences. If our PM was unwise and got involved in any illegal activity, God forbid, then so be it!

      Allan Sanford is in jail after investing and living in Antigua for many years. I do not think that I have heard of any Antiguan government officials in jail alongside him or that they were part of his Ponzi scheme fraud, so I’m not sure of the point you are making.

      I have been reading and listening in puzzlement up till now for some kind of indication of what exactly was the crime committed by Mr. Skerrit for being seen in the company of a Chinese businessman who seemed to also have been in the company of many other people. So if it turns out that Mr. Skerrit is not indicted or found guilty of any illegal or unethical activity, is this going to be another corruption allegation for which all churches and citizens must speak out about?

      • Francisco Telemaque
        October 9, 2015

        Barbara, the Alan Stanford situation is totally different. Ash and that China-man affair is different in that the incident too place in the United Nation, and trickle down to the IRS. It is a capital offence to defraud the IRS of taxes which should be paid on money earned in the United States.

        Ash, has violated that law, and is going to jail for if nothing more than that.

        There is also money laundering laws in America; the China man smuggled hundreds of thousands of dollars into the United States without declaring the money to customs, and the immigration and Naturalization Services. He broke the money laundering laws. Now regarding Alan and Antigua, since you have an Antiguan name I am sure you aware that Alan had the Birds twisted around his fingers, and has paid out millions of dollars bribing politicians in Antigua, to do as he wish in Antigua.

        He is now serving a 110 years in jail for stealing from American people in his pansy sachem!

        My former wife is Antiguan born, I have as much born Antigua relatives alive there; my aunt Ivy Valmond a Carib the late married to Henry Straker the late from Dominica was a police in Antigua in the 40’s here oldest daughter right now is 86. My brother was gunned down in Antigua a few years ago he was a police and fire inspector on the island, his name was Almoor Robin, I have many nieces and nephews living and working in Antigua, you see.

        So, I do not believe there is anything you can tell me about Antigua that I do not know. If You ask an older Antiguan if they ever heard of Telemaque & Caesar Electronics, they’ll say yes, that’s me. If you ask them about a ship from Copenhagen Denmark, named M. V. Felskove,…

    What especially Christians must know and those who call themselves Christians and claim to be Christians, God loves us all.
    No one is greater and lesser in His eyes.
    He loves the good, the bad, the good looking and the ugly all the same.
    He loves the criminals and non criminals.
    He knows the lifestyle of everyone and what they do, wherever they may be.
    He knows that no one is perfect, some worst than others and that some are not even striving for perfection. Note their words.
    As some words of a song:

    A tongue can accuse and carry bad news.
    The seeds of destruction it sows.

    Ng may have offered to invest in Dominica. Is this grounds to suspect the PM about wrongdoing? Some of you need to develop a broad mind.
    Linton better be careful. He has not yet learned that he could be sued and charged.
    James sued a man for simply asking a question, “Where did he get the money to build a hotel in Barbados.
    By the way someone informed me that James wife resides in Barbados and he visits from time to time. This was hearsay. We tend to believe hearsay.

      October 8, 2015

      Unless they knew Ng was involved in shady deals, they cannot be suspected and implicated. If it is known they knew, this is another story. The same may apply for the Antiguan man who was indicted.
      It is sad that he withheld income tax information. This would have indicted him for withholding income from the government. It would have been questionable where he got it from.
      Another thing, some so-called friends/associates give their own away. When people see others doing well they tend to get jealous. These may be jealous. The same applies to those who have accused the PM and his cabinet as I have read on this Website.
      People do not wait when the case is called and listen to the proceedings. They are too quick to attack, accuse and judge by what they hear and read.
      Some of you love gossip too much. They heard about the man and right away assume the PM is involved. How stupid can they get, with Linton at the head and the leader of it? Watch yourselves.

    Linton, you are an instigator. The PM was not named and you want him to come forth and speak about what he does not know and about the man. Does he know the man’s personal business and what he has been conducting in private? First find that out before you implicate him.
    You are not a smart man. You are the one implicating him. You are out to tarnish the reputation of the PM and to see him fall. So you are enticing D/cans, especially his non-supporters who support you, to demand that the PM speak up. About what? What does the PM owe you anyway? I hope he says nothing for he owes you, others and your satisfaction nothing. He should not pacify people as you.

      …and if the PM responds on an issue he is NOT EVEN NAMED he will likely be the subject of MORE and more unfair comments and innuendos, not to mention creating a perecent to respond on ANY ISSUE that Linton deems he must “clear the air”.

      Ah Ah “jobe” you are thinking like a true labourite :mrgreen: But its not America that’s in criminal investors business. These investors, those who were arrested, apply and gain american citizenship and greencards. Then they purchase expensive homes in america, why not in china, russia, or the middle east :mrgreen: Maybe the U.N. OAS, The world bank, IMF all the other embassies should move out of ” cruel” america, and move to havana,cuba, or vielle case. No those investors love the “cruel” american banking system to launder their illegal money. And the shopping on lextington, ave, madison ave, fifth ave, and park ave is wonderful and tax free, “NO VAT” :mrgreen: And they also love to have their children to be born in “cruel” america and have american citizenship.

        The US government should be happy about getting their money and investments which is why they approved their residency and citizenship.
        The US wants money and more of it. Consider Obama instituting HSS Mandate and ordering all US employers including Christian employers with no exception to provide abortion pills, morning after pills – contraceptives, sterilization, etc. in their insurance package. Failing to do so they will be fined approximately $3,000 daily. Can you imagine that? What a shame! This man has no respect for people’s religious rights and freedom.
        What I have deduced from this is, this man is a population suppressor and he calls himself a Christian in addition to approving and applauding abomination in the US land. By the latter, you should know what I mean. Much more could be stated. Hope you hear and read this news

    I read in another column where it is stated that the arrest of Ash, and the China man has nothing to do with Skerrit! It is a mistake for anyone to believe that. Here is an example, I have a friend who was a Major in the military, he is one of those who served in Iraq, and returned rich.

    They were investigating him, I called his house many times, only to find my house phone was bugged! I am sure the FBI were keeping tabs on me. I was not involved in the money; eventually the Major went jail, his wife narrowly escaped jail. So for Skerrit to be in the middle of the action cutting cake with two individual arrested by the FBI, and are now facing jail time; for someone to make the claim that it has nothing to do with Skerrit, they do not actually know how the FBI, the IRS, and the DEA operate in this country!

    Skerrit had better be clean: one can bet Skerrit might be investigated because of his association with that man! And I did not say he is guilty of any crime!

    • Barbara Saunders
      October 9, 2015

      But Mr. Bright and brilliant Telemaque,

      You just said that you had nothing to do with the misdeeds of a man who was your friend and who was sent to jail for some kind of illegal activity. You said that your phone was being tapped and all of that during the investigation of your friend but you had absolutely nothing to do with the man’s activities.

      Why then would it be a mistake for anyone to believe that the activities of the Chinese billionaire had nothing to do with Mr. Skerrit merely on the premise that he was associated with him and seen in his company. (Note that I am not saying that he was, God forbid, or was not. I do not know!)

      If you want people to come along with you on the journey against Mr. Skerrit you at least have to present some logic, so that you won’t have to curse sensible Dominicans if they don’t jump on your illogical train and join in these tenuous claims of corruption which just seem to grow by the minute and fail the tests of proof.

        You did not quite understand the point I made. Indeed my phone was tapped, who knows; the FBI may have even investigated me. All I am saying anybody who have a connection with the two arrested and charged Criminals will be suspect involved in the illegal scheme.

        Therefore, they will be investigated to see if there is any involvement. Now because the police ( Interpol, FBI Scotland Yard ) may investigate someone does not mean the investigated is guilty of a crime, if the investigators find credible evidence that Skerrit, or any of the other individuals so called big-shot in the picture cutting and eating cake are found to be involved, including Skerrit, you can be sure it’s only a matter of time for them to be picked up and arrested!

        We do have an extradition treaty with the United States, and whereas nobody in Dominica might be willing to execute a warrant to arrest Skerrit, if he is involved, any day he leaves Dominica that might be it; a bounty hunter will get him!

      • Barbara Saunders
        October 10, 2015

        Yes Mr. most brilliant

        I well understood the point and the analogy you were making. My point is that they were not logical and even contradictory. That’s what I’m saying. I will also repeat that everyone who engages in corrupt activity be it politician, doctor, journalist, lawyer, pastor with congregations, whoever, should face the consequences.

        However, the good book and the laws of natural justice instruct me to wait until a man, any man, is proven guilty before I conclude that he is. I cannot string up a person without facts and proof because I may very well find myself on that side of the fence one day and would want my name and reputation to be subject to the laws of fairness and justice before I am condemned.

    I understand that Mr. Linton is a man of high moral character; however he needs to understand how the game is played. We are too pure in Dominica. We need to entice a corrupt billionaire to relocate to Dominica and spend his fortune there to help develop the island. When he gets caught and jailed, the structures that are built in Dominica can’t be taken away by plane or boat. How do you think Antigua became so developed? Allan Sanford went to jail; however the cricket field that he built in Antigua is still available for playing cricket. It’s time that we benefit from corruption.

    • Reader
      October 8, 2015

      Structures are physical. If you don’t have the human resource to manage and operate them, they are useless. Funny that you used Antigua as an example because all that Sanford built stands but the economy has taken a blow since his financial absence. Antigua is in very bad condition now and so are many other Caribbean islands run by the Labour Party Franchise. The entire Caribbean needs a change in government. I believe we are suffering the effects of our liberators lack of realistic economic planning post independence and lavish mismanagement of public funds. Something must be done in this Caribbean before it’s too late.

      How do you know how B/dos, US VI and other islands got rich, richer than Dominica?
      In the past D/ca accepted investors without investigating them. Crooks used the islands as a haven for living a high life and hiding from the authorities. No one questioned them as they lived lavishly and acquired personal status in the islands. Some of them were nobodies in their country of origin.
      Residing in Canada, I recall when I first read about Sanford from Texas and that he had a football (?) field built in Antigua and performed other good works. I was suspicious of him and wondered where did he get the money.
      Antigua did not return the funds. What happened to it?
      As long as a government does not know about their criminal scheme, the government is not guilty and not to be blamed.
      The question to be asked, did he know the man personally and his schemes?
      I suggest to these wicked, vindictive critics and enemies to leave the PM alone. He does not have to answer to them.

        The number one reason why Barbados is richer than Dominica, is because Barbados, is practically an industrialized island, there are manufacturing industries there in addition to the tourist industry. St. Thomas and St. Croix gave up the sugar cane industry in favor of tourism, and became very successful, don’t you know that St. Croix, St. Johns, St. Thomas, and Puerto Rico are American territories.

        There are lots of very wealthy Americans residing on those islands. Where do you get the idea that investor and that crap went to Dominica, who were criminals, and were not investigated? You are a liar! There was L Rose & Company, Guest Industries, and a few white Estate owners on the island, when Leblanc became Chief Minister of Dominica he ensured every last white person left the island.

      We should not encourage thieves such as Stanford, that will only give the country a bad name. Nevertheless; American millionaires such as those who settled in the community of Mill-reef (millionaire-reef) on the South Eastern part of the island would be a great idea.

      They settled there in the 1950’s and early 1960’s practically all the pioneers are dead, leaving their properties to surviving relatives. The majority of the proprieties are now in the hands of local Antiguan’s. In any event Antigua has always had a pull, something which encouraged white foreigners to settle on the island.

      Unlike Dominica where the Labor Party chased every last white person out of Dominica; the last left in 1958, or there about. We have nothing in country that will cause people to settle there,our country is just too backwards!

      Linton did not accused Skerrit of anything.He just ask him to tell the people what association he has with this man.He is seen holding hands and cutting cake .Not anyone hold hands and cut cake. Just tell the people MOU he signed and how close is he with this guy who got arrested in NY.Are Dominicans so stupid.Are they related to s wachen

        Some of you are narrow minded. The fact of Linton and his article, it is an indirect accusation and implication that the PM knows about that man.
        Linton already believes that the PM knows Ng personally and his schemes.
        You people get me angry. One person starts a war and the others follow suit.
        Do you know the saying, “One fool makes many fools? This is what I conclude about you critics.
        As I stated previously, ask yourself. Do you think that the PM knew about Ng and that he confided in him about his schemes? Some people could get involved innocently.
        Some of you people know the saying, if not all of you, “A thief is never a thief until he is caught?
        Why all this about the PM? Some of you are so bent on criticizing and judging that you make a huge story out of this. Will people as you ever learn to be smart and broadminded?
        Be careful! The power of the tongue and the fingers to the keyboard are dangerous tools which people will one day pay for.

    People think the US stupid. Don’t you think they are checking every one of the individuals in that photo. There are four guys holding hands cutting cake. This can only mean they are best of friends or main beneficiary. If our PM has a friendship with these guy and he is now serving time in prison along with others in the photo it would be extremely naive of us not to ask questions or demand answers. Skerrit is after all our servant not my Master. If he does not feel the need to clear his name then he should not be getting paid by Dominica and use our Police service. Probably he does not need to. If he does not speak on the issue then I will conclude he has some lawyers already telling him to stay quiet. This is the US and anything you say or do can get you down a deep hole. Time will tell.

      They also check you out every time you travel to the US or are in the US. You, too are under suspicion (the entire human race), even though you may not commit a crime or associate unknowingly with people of shady characters .
      Did you know the US has its undercover agents all over the world, even at those functions?
      Let me further inform you, a few years ago I was typing on my computer and noticed on the lower left hand corner, the words “Interpol.” As fast as it came, as fast as it disappeared. I wondered, what is Interpol doing on my computer?
      At that time the US was looking for some criminals and so Interpol was accessing all computers I suppose. I did not make an issue of it; should have informed the Toronto Media.
      Clear what name? What has he done? He was not indicted and arrested. Even though he is friendly with the man, this does not mean he knows about his personal lifestyle.
      There are too many Dominicans who are narrow minded and negative.

    Linton, please remain in the back seat! Our Dear Prime Minister has not been named in any wrong doing. You have attempted to destroy the PM on so many occasions and have failed. We do not want you to lead our Country! The sooner you absorb the fact that the majority of Dominicans support the PM, the easier it will be for you to face reality. You can huff, you can puff, your crave for attention and to be PM will remain just that. You are unable to get the PM out of office by the ballot, therefore, every opportunity you get you are taking shots at him. PM Skerrit will not be distracted by another raving lunatic. Stand strong PM! Viva PM Skerrit!

      Some people have hearts as hard as rock. They go to church, read the Bible and quote from it but what evil ways. God knows this more than I do. His punishment will be severe on some people.
      Linton is not working in the interest of Dominicans but in his own interest. He let the UWP leadership go to his head. I do believe he is overdoing it.

      The truth is in your face, yet you are defending someone who might be involved into something very cynical.

      Again I am not here to tell anyone that Skerrit is guilty of any crime, only time will tell. I had a experience where it too about seven years to investigate a friend on mine, the investigation covered his whole family, his wife family: his mother-in-law had to give account as to where she got her money to buy her house.

      So, all you who are running your mouth off, had better be quiet, stop defending because you don’t know for a fact if Skerrit is involved. I do not know either, however, based on the picture, I I have my suspicions!

    That’s right Mr Linton the PM must be held to account because he will tarnish the good name this country that we love and hold dearly. The Labour Party ran for elections accusing the UWP government of corruption even if they could not prove anything. I guess the words of Kohkom were enough for them,but they were wrong..Not only must Mr Skerritt come clean in his own regard,but he must assure the nation that our UN ambassador is also clean.Mr Skerritt has to investigate all his ministers and ambassadors to assure us that they are not corrupt..Keep up the pressure Mr Linton because the world is watching.

Am sure some of you can’t even have a goodnight in bed as you all are obsessing over one man,,,, leave the pm alone just leave him be…Lennox the ring leader in all that juboom wants to see the downfall of the pm because he is jealous jealous jealous and jealousy is an evil and very bad maladie a disease which has no cure.it is worse than any cancer, and this jealousy is eating him inside..m

    Now; we may never see the FBI in Dominica making an arrest, however, if anybody (politician) in Dominica is involved one day they my leave Dominica on a trip, and they will not return for a long time. As they will be captured, be it in Moscow, China or wherever they are caught.

    And diplomatic passport will not prevent them from going to jail as that Antigua boss-man will soon see the inside of an American jail! Admin I called no name, but I believe some Dominica politician, and that former Antigua Prime Minister is shaking in their boot right at this moment!

        These people are quite easily caught, all one have to do is compute the total amount of honest money paid to them by the government treasury, and add the total cost of all they own, subtract the honest money from the to cost of their assets. The difference will be vast, and they would have to state the source of the difference. Every single one of them would be sent to jail, and by that I mean no exception!
