No DLP agents involved in sale of passports – PM

Prime Minister Rooselelt Skerrit has rubbished suggestions that agents of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) administration are involved in the selling of Dominica’s passports.

Speaking on the Next Level radio programme Skerrit said all passport transactions are done by the Chief Immigration Officer.

“No agent, I can speak for the DLP administration from 2000 to now, gives passports to any applicants or sells passports to any applicants. No agent has passports in his possession. The passports are kept in safe keeping by the Chief Immigration Officer and that immigration officer has a responsibility to go through and ensure that all the passports are there but no agent has passports in his office anywhere in the world,” he said.

Dominica’s economic citizenship programme has come under severe criticism lately but according to the Prime Minister it is simply something that is similar to several others around the world.

“In the US, you can put your name into a lottery to become a citizen. Canada has an economic citizenship program, Australia, Singapore. In certain countries, based on your investment, they will give you citizenship to ensure that you will remain in the country,” he said.

    Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that actually make it harder to lose weight in an effort to conserve energy.
    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight
    vegetarians to keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to lose weight and keep it off.

    Yes, Most Countries arround the world has an economic citizenship track. It is a track. First a permanent residency is issued. Then that individual must meet requirements over a 3 to 5 yr period before Citizenship is granted.

    Do we have a permanent residency program in Dominica? What we are not told is how quickly can become a citizen.

    We need amend this. Anyone seeking Dominican Citizenship must be a permanent resident first. Must meet set requirements and only after contributing to our tax base and private sector over a few yrs should Citizenship be granted…

    Mr. PM. The US Lottery is for Permanent Residency (green card lottery) not citizenship.

    The Canadian Program offers Permanent Residency with a Citizenship track. Dont speak to US like we don’t because you are lossing credibility.

    If these is one thing Dominica’s know about is the immigration laws of the US , Canada and England because those are the countries Dominicans migrate to.

    Get your facts right and don’t twise the truth.

    Can the PM comment on whether an Italian man who is linked to the mafia got a passport this past June? There is a newly uncovered report that points to that. If the Chief Immigration Officer has the keys to the passport vault can he /she tell us how many passports were awarded –can he verify this report? Skerrit Dominicans are no fools and your credibility is 000000. Of course you base does not think so—You are very rich and where did you get all the money is such a short time? Inheritance? We know it is not from your salary. 1+ 1 = 2…WE ARE NO FOOLS AND YOUR BS WILL NOT DETER US FROM FURTHER DIGGING.

    PM Skerrit….. Honestly needs to get his facts right before making statements…. ONLY THREE (3) countires int he world participate in an economic citizenship program: of which two are more legitimate than the third….
    Don’t get trapped in your web Skerrit because if you go too deep there may be no chance of getting out…. Canada, Australia and Singapore all have second passport programs but are classed under the Naturalization process just like the U.S. that;s because they have desirable economies with better opportunities…..

    PM is a true thing that your government was selling passport for haition in possie i know of that because there was one haition who sent for his brother to get passport after he was in DA for one month .look at what your people going through in the us to get a passport and is if the us wants they give us passport.you have to married for green card and then get 2 years probation after thast u have to go back to the officer to get the real green card then for passport some people can get in 3 years and some in 5 years before you can apply for the passport and if they want they give it to you. so why haition and the others come DA and get passport to go do bad things in people county and mess up Dominican. i think we should STOP that giving passpot to any body even if they come here and have let there family go back to there country to get there passport.

    Well if agents of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) administration are not involved in the selling of Dominica’s passports, someone has unauthorized access to the passports.

    The people who are so sure that Dawood Ibrahim has a Dominican passport might be just that – sure! and it could be due to these people in this story:

    https://dominicanewsonline.com/news/all-news/court/ts-on-forgery-charges/

    Due to greed and wanting what they cannot afford, these young people have compromised the passport system and now, really bad guys could have our passports.

    What ever became of that case?

    When Skerrit get an independent source from the FBI or British Inteligence to tell Dominicans that no one in DLP administration are involved in the selling of passports , then I may beleive him.
    This is such a serious time in our history to be linked to these rouge men of such dangerous character and Dominicans are still seating on their hands without putting any pressure on Skerrit to come clean on this matter.
    Soon we wont even be able to go to Barbados with Da passports.

THEREFORE WHILE SKERRIT FLIPPIG MOUTH IS HARPING ON THE OTHER RADIO STATIONS EXCEPT Q ABOUT AGENTS SELLING PASSPORTS, WE KNOW THAT IT IS WORSE THEN A SMOKE SCREEN, IT IS DAMN COCKEYED.

    November 17, 2011

    I think the prime minister is skirting the issue at hand. Whether or not other countries have economic citizenship programs is not the case, rather, we should be more concerned with the manner in which these programs are run. It should be ensured that such programs benefit the entire country and not just a few individuals. Who are the agents who interview the prospective Dominican citizens outside of Dominica? To be certain, its not the Chief Immigration Officer who travels to the middle east regions dishing out our passports. This issue falls in the Public domain and should be treated as such. Publicizing the names of these agents and the individuals who have received our passports does not in any way threaten the national security of Dominica; in contrast I think not publicizing it puts the country at risk. Mr. Skerrit should not have a problem in issuing the list of persons who were authorized to conduct the sale of our passports.

    November 17, 2011

    Skerrit can you tell the country how many $$$$$ have been collected (not investments) from the economic citizenship Program under your leadership? Can you tell the country how many passports have been awarded under your administration and the names of the recipients? Can you provide numbers to go along with your claims of ‘rubbish’? I don’t believe you and your BS for a second Skerrit. Maybe the UN or U.S will ask you for it. I know you cannot tell them it is ‘RUBBiSH’ because they will sure make ‘Rubbish’ of you and unfortunately of our country. Maybe Dominica will be worth Rubbish when they are finished with your arrogant and dishonest self and the truth will finally come out. Hold on People better days are coming.

    Skerrit knows his supporters are either idiots or parasites, so he feeding them all kinds of untruths and they swallow it hook line and sinker.

    The US and Canada do not have any lotteries where they give citizenshipo to investors. There are such programs that allow investors into the country. But they have to go through the normal procedure to obtain citizenship. They have to have lived in the country for a specified period of time. Otherwise, no matter how much money they invest, if they do not meet that requirement, they will never become American citizens.

    My people, do not believe everything the prime minister says.

    Boy Dominica is in a real mess. People believing anything. It’s really true that is they say it long enough people will believe. Everything that happen on the planet is politics in this country. I mean, if people have evidence then bring it out. And if the gov is involved in illegal behaviours then let them all hang out to dry. But so far every week, it’s something. Say it long enough and they will believe. I just think this dirty politics from b oth sides need to stop ASAP. It is not a good look. Several years now this has been going on.

    I believe that in most cases money is passed around, before and after the SALE of passports. If that were no so, The pm would be able to show the public a report backed up with evidence of all the passports sold and all the monies that were received and he should be able to give account for all the money and describe the investments that each person who obtained a passport is making towards the development of Dominica.

    I was once in the circle of trust but was ostracized for standing up for what is right for the country. The statement by the pm is another bold face lie. I know of agents who had portions of passports in their possesion.the immigration officers jump at the command of those agents.even advisors and embassadors travel with random supply of passports.
    The idea that rosie wanted to stop the passport sale is partially true.rosie wanted to instill control as we know that uwp guys were selling passports like roast plantains. Rosie on a few occasions traveled out of stae with passports.
    I know of incidences between cabals about who was the initiator and who should have been the primary agent.
    The PM in all fairness does not have control over the wild west sale of our passports.Tony sort of let the kittenout when he said that he sometimes meet clients of Alick Lawrence. If we are honest with ourselves we can figure this out without a degree in anything.

So mr. L the super attorney need to come clean..He seem to be very quite but it appears he is the one master minding that gold mine for the DLP. By the way after they had the guy from newtown and wiltshire about the passport vibes I saw that super lawyer making nuff trip to the police headquarters… Something is fishy..and the heat will get hotter trust me… The lawyer turn farmer now needs to be scrutized as well… all the purchase of Caribbean construction and gas station is the washing machines….I am watching

    I’ll say this on the matter…

    PM Skerrit’s wording is meticulous in this article: “No agent, I can speak for the DLP administration from 2000 to now, gives passports to any applicants or sells passports to any applicants.”

    He’s probably right about that. BUT what the PM said does not mean that DLP agents have not facilitated the Economic Citizenship process. One could very well promote, sell, facilitate and finilize arrangements for another individual’s Economic Citizenship without ever seeing a Dominican passport.

    That’s My2Sense.

      I am a salesman for a reputable firm in Dominica, I make thousands of sales, for the last 5 years I have never touched the products that I sell.
      In fact, coming to think of it, I cannot even remember when last I actually saw them. I only have to know whether or not we have in stock and I make the deals.
      So PM change that line of defense, no one expects the agents to deliver the passports personally, their role is to seal the deal and your Chief Immigration Officer does the rest, whether it is ZANG OR BUFFONG they use to deliver it.

      And you are so right because the truth is, thats just how it happens. And to those who thumbs downed my earlier comments, can any of you either deny the facts about the US lottery? or can you show me the investment/s of any of the economic citizens in Dominica excluding the Garraway Hotel and Jungle Bay? Thats a challenge to you blinded supporters. “See and blind hear and death” as you are.

      We could also conclude that they may be doing this without the PM knowledge. I doubt that if someone who involved in this dubious act would like their boss to know.
      Why should we conclude that Skerrit knows everything that everyone who is connected to the DLP does. LEts say he can speak for himself and give him that benefit of a doubt, but surely, it is a possibility, that one of them could have their little private business going. It is amazing what one phone call can do.

    I’m glad to that he says in other countries based on your investment they give you citizenship. Mr. Skerrit can you please show us the investments made by the so-called economic citizens who currently hold our passports?

    Once again Skerrit tries to mislead people. The US lottery is for visa/green card not passports. To get a US passport if you are a non-citizen, you must live in the US for five years and along with the other normal due dilligence processes you have to do a test as well.

      Well he meant to become legal in the United States. A process by which you can later obtain citizenship. However, I have known of people who became citizens who could not get a passport for one reason or another, one such example is failure to pay child support.
