Pinard says he is “not going nowhere”

Pinard said he will continue working in the constituency
Pinard said he will continue working in the constituency

He may have resigned as Ports Minister and MP for the Soufriere Constituency but Ian Pinard has made it clear that he is not going to just ride into the sunset.

At the launching ceremony of the new Dominica Labour Party (DLP) candidate, Denise Charles, in Pointe Michel on Saturday evening, Pinard revealed his future in the constituency.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I can tell you that I am not going nowhere,” he thundered to throngs of cheering Labourites. “I can tell you that I will be with Denise Charles working with her, helping her to ensure that the constituency will always be Labour next election, the election after and I will be there to ensure that.”

The past months have not been kind to Pinard. On Wednesday, March 2 he announced that he was resigning his post as Ports Minister based on “allegations of serious inappropriate behavior” which had been gripping the nation. But he pointed out that he will continue to serve the constituency as Member of Parliament.

However, in a surprising and unexpected move, Pinard announced at a special meeting of the Dominica Labour Party Constituency Association in Soufriere on April 26, that he was also resigning at MP based on the same allegations. An emotional, and clearly uncomfortable Pinard, said the entire matter has had an enormous impact on him emotionally, psychologically and physically and has prevented him from functioning to the best of his ability as MP.

At Saturday’s rally, Pinard had high praise for his successor, who he said, has worked for many years in the constituency.

“Denise Charles walked with me in the last elections and she has walked the streets with Sam Martin the election before and Denise Charles knows and understand your concerns, your needs your aspirations and I can tell you that Denise will continue the work,” he said. “I can tell you that Denise Charles is an excellent candidate for the next parliamentary representative for the Soufriere Constituency.”

He said Charles will fly the Labour flag with pride and confidence “as well as treat your needs and concerns of the residents of Soufriere Constituency with sensitivity.”

“Denise Charles will be a strong and eloquent voice in parliament,” he stated. “Labourites, this constituency will be in good hands with Denise Charles. Together we shall work hard to further the progress and development of the Soufriere Constituency, so today Denise Charles has my full endorsement.”

    Joshua Francis was UWP WHERE WAS the support for him, he was the one person who could beat skerro and you force him out as a member of your team. now you have to cope with Pinard on the right and Pinard on the left. Ian is no longer your candidate, why make him a hero. Miss Demise is our rep and you must vote her in. On a second note, she is a Charles and also an accountant, so she will not be without a job so what. Just insulting each other on www. Take your responsibilities seriously and pay for your own mistakes. Forget Ian Pinard for he is no longer there. If he is strong enough to show his face in public good for him, I never give him a second look

    Lol this man is clearly insane as well as the entire party who didn\’t shut him up for saying that rubbish. If i was Denise i would run and hide because this is a shame. I find it hard to take what\’s going on in Dominica seriously its either we have a serious case of \”sootiweh\” or everybody foo. In ny opinion this statement should spark a major protest actiob for the rights of women and young girls. But whatever happened to the young lady btw?

    Such hatred, such venom. I wonder if a Psychiatrist were to analyse some of the postings here on this topic many of us would be thrown in the looney bin. Papa God we foo for true.

    And the really sad thing about it all is that we pretend we care for the child in an alleged sexual abused case but in fact that is not true is it? What is true is that the UWP supporters on here sees they will not win the by-election so they are crucifying a person who has not had his day in court on an alleged matter.

    If the UWP really wanted to show solidarity with the allege victim(s) they would not run a candidate in any of the three ridings. But it is too late now because winning the seats is all that really matters. And puling a candidate out or not contesting now because you know you would lose is even worst, because it would prove you really don’t care.

    It seems that the very simple point being missed by Ian’s supporters is that he was voted ‘by the people’. His position as Parl Rep is of public service and not a throning as some king who was entitled as heir to the throne. NO.
    We the people do not have a duty to Ian to even be ‘thankful’ for ALL that he has done for us 8-O by supporting his nonsense ehh?
    NO. HE HAS A DUTY TO US.

    How should a young lady who was a victim of a horrible crime feel when she sees the full weight and support of the Government is behind the accused perpetrator of that crime? Can any of YOU imagine the amount of fright, apprehension and terror that young lady must be going through clearly seeing that the HIGHEST OFFICE OF THE LAND is standing in solidarity behind the perpetrator and not behind HER??? Believing in her heart that for sure there WILL BE NO JUSTICE for HER!!! Imagine the horror of knowing that her reward for being brave and speaking up is simply embarrassment and shame while the reward for the one who did her wrong is praise from her own Prime Minister! My good people of the Soufriere Constituency will you be the voice of this young lady and say to this Government…PLEASE STOP IGNORING ME? Will you use your votes to speak truth to power and to give this young lady hope that Dominicans care about our children? 2016 Send a message and vote them out!!!!

    Ian, when we heard that you had stepped down, we really thought that you had stepped down and out, ie, away from active up in people’s face politics — even if of course based on your relationship with the party you would be involved behind the scenes. But it seems as if that when we praised you for stepping down your true or foolish colours and that of your team began to shine right through, given that you stepped down but stayed right where you were in the first place, simply continuing the tradition of “i did it so what? take it”, making this an I am better than them (UWP) show, and that we Dominicans have our backs against the wall; who are we going to put there ranting. The UWP? look at dem fellas.
    I tell you Ian and our cabal, no amount of ties, pointed shoes, shiny heads and long weave will make you all men of principle or honesty because you all have disrespected this country in every way possible, even our children. You are right, you are not going nowhere.

    I have lost ALL respect for Skerrit and his supporters. I’ve said this time and time again, whenever there is some kind of scandal/ legal issue involving the member of an organization (outside of Dominica at least), the organization IMMEDIATELY puts that person on admin leave or disassociate themselves until the matter has been cleared up. But noooo, not in Dominica. That is highly unprofessional of Skerrit and is embarrassing. This is highly unethical, but then again, seems like that’s how the country set up now…and I’m seeing so many people jumping and cheering for that.

What is a so called minor seeing a Politician? Where is the parents of the children? where is their father? If they are children or minor the parent should know their where about. The children depend on their father and mother for protection. Don’t we know how a child come about? Bad up bringing causing so much problem for society. If you are grown up you should have a lover ,boyfriend or girlfriend are for school children. Women get hold of yourselves and take your responsibilities seriously and stop harassing other people for your mistakes. Support Denise for she came from good background.Blessings

You can’t be that blinded by party lines and color that you’re unable to make a moral decision. This is disturbing and leads me to believe that our country is becoming morally bankrupt. Yes I know somebody will say innocent until proven guilty but given the nature of the allegations we should give the victim some measure of support. See Krazy Tee doh even making ah peep?

Some of you got away with murder especially policemen. Reminisce back then and see how you went Scot free because the emphasis was not as today. I know what I am talking about. It was wrong back then as it is today but instead of saying boy what if yesterday was like today man. Man. You are judging even before the case is called…. hatred and politics. . Again I have not left out the probability of setting up, planning and scheming because the hatred is so obvious. Also in the other camp, the leader was accused as well…………. People be careful.

    What message is the government sending to our young men and the people of Dominica? The government knows full well that Ian Pinard was arrested, charged, and still under bail for an alleged inappropriate behavior against a minor and he is allowed on the DLP platform in the very village where the minor lives.. No wonder he is certain that he is going nowhere, because the government supports him.

    Come on Dominica we cannot stand by and witness such blatant disrespect and disregard for our children by anyone not even the government.

    UWP supporters are out in full swing as always on this Website. We know you are, filled with hatred.
    If he were your father, brother, other relative, friend, neighbor, co-worker, associate, would you cast him aside? Even murderers have family, friends and supporters. Lawyers defend them. Some successfully defend them.
    Our Lord Jesus Christ casts no one aside. He does not call them bad names. He is happy when they recognize their error, repent and turn to him with a humble and contrite heart. They are given a second chance and more, just as you critics.
    Some of you are foolish. You must learn the ways of God. Your comments lack it which means your heart is devoid of it. Beware that you do not become worst than him.
    If you do not cease your hatred, consider where your soul will end up and even how not gracefully you will age with no health and strength.
    I would vote for Denise Charles, for DLP any day. She is the candidate. Denise, I wish you good luck!

      He was arrested, which led to his resignation from the government humiliated in disgrace, and shame; yet, you come here talking rubbish about UWP supporters is on website in full force.

      What hatred are you talking about?

      How many UWP supporters do you know who to Pinard and instructed him to go and involve himself in any sort, or form of inappropriate behavior with a child?

      How can you an old heifer condone such inappropriate action? Had it been your daughter; would you simply accept that because you support a corrupt regime? You know I respected him for stepping out of office, but with what I am experiencing here I smell the case has already settled, and he knows it that is why he is standing there barking…

To have allowed Ian to be a speaker on that platform is nothing but low-down and rotten. Skerritt has shown his lack of solidarity with the VICTIM of that SEXUAL ABUSE saga. Plain and simple. All mothers and Dominicans, on a whole, must reject such attitudes. Where is the human dignity to forget completely the child, the victim of such a crime?

    Pinard, I smell buyers remorse: to suggest you are not going to a nonexistent place, that to me is failing to accept whatever the outcome of the allegations levied against you; your life will never be the same, you are at the moment existing in obscurity. What happens if you are sentence to prison for the allegations of some crime which has already caused you to resign your job?

    You should not even be on a platform supporting this lady, in another more developed country you would could not stand next to any candidate; they would stay clear of you, would be ignored; but as usual anything goes in Dominica!

    To say to your former constituency that you will be there to help her; to me is an indication you are overconfidence about the outcome of the matter. So, I ask; if you become a convict will you be allowed to remain in the background as a minister of Government, and the elected will only be a token?

Some are consistently immoral and they make such comments against others. It is wicked and hypocritical to do so. God knows you, your lifestyle and also others.
      It is immoral to also call people the devil and satan and speak ill of them. They are your brothers in Jesus Christ. You offended Our Lord Jesus Christ. He said: “The insults of those who insult you fall on Me.” Those who hurt others in whatever manner will be punished. They will not escape.

    Pinard says he is “not going nowhere.” In another country Ian Pinard would be wearing an ancle monitor. An ankle monitor (also known as a tether, or ankle bracelet) is a homing device that individuals under house arrest or parole are often required to wear.

    Technically speaking the man is under house arrest, and CANNOT go anywhere because according to court documents and condition for his bail, he was supposed to surrender his passport and had to report to the police once or twice a weak. So he really cannot go anywhere.

    This man deserves to wear an ankle monitor so that ever mother, every young girl, every woman that sees him would remember him as a man who was arrested, charged, and under bail for allegedly behaving inappropriately with a minor, according to Ian himself. though the court papers suggests the man was arrested for a much, much, much more serious crime

      According to vibes http://www.dominicavibes.dm/news-195623/ “The politician must receive permission of the court if he is to leave the island as well as having to report to a police station every Monday and Friday. He should not have contact with the virtual complainant and her mother by person or through any agent.” So the man is right to say he is not going anywhere because he cannot go anywhere without court permission.

      If this man were in the USA he would be wearing an ankle monitor so the police could track his whereabouts and mothers, young girls, minors and all would no that he was arrested and charged for a very serious crime against a minor and all should beware of him.

      I reside in a big country. I can inform you about that. Many of the children are so-called blacks, from West Indian parentage. Space for them is running out. Sometime ago, there was an advertisement that the Children’s Aid and the Government are asking for foster homes for them.
      One thing, parents must nurture their children appropriately. This is, to instruct them about these occurrences.
      I heard some young school girls, those they call minors, run after men. They are happy to be with them; no doubt are paid. Some parents may not ask where they got the money from to purchase certain luxuries.
      Don’t know if you are a man or a woman. Nevertheless, men are easily tempted (even women).
      We must be fair about this situation and speak the truth; do not water it down and turn away from the truth. Weigh out all situations and do not blame only one person. In other words, do not be biased. Too many hypocrites who blame others while not themselves.

      How can someone accused of an alleged crime of inappropriate conduct with a child, speak with such confidence that he is not going anywhere unless he is privy to the fact that the matter might be already settled prior to a hearing in a court of law?

        We were all children. We knew how to behave at home and in public whether our parents were present or not. It is not everything parents told their children in those days. The children knew how to conduct themselves and how to allow others to treat them. They were not street children.
        The children of today are not children. They will not listen to their parents or other adults who try to educate them about such matters.
        What I also have to state, men must keep away from them. I think from now on, knowing the end result, they will. Hope the girls do not go after them. If they do, they should report them to the police. Show Dominicans and the police who is pursuing whom.

    Why should Ian Pinard go anywhere including jail, when he knows he is part of a government that gives people the impression that even if one is arrested and charged by the police for a very serious crime involving a minor, the nation’s prime minister can make a hero of him? Isn’t that the same principle that encourage Muslims to get involved in holy war because their religion teaches them that if they die in defense mission-John of their faith God has a special reward for them?

    When Skerrit returned from transacting his so called doctorate and received a heroes welcome at the airport, here’s the mess he knew he left and had to address. 1. His minister, Ian Pinard, his friend and alleged business partner and owner of Kaire radio along with his UWP oponnent, were alegedly involved in a serious sex scandal with a minor. Since then all three were arrested and charged. One would expect a sensible government to disassociate itself from them at least in public. But instead what we have seen is a closer tie between them and the govern. They using the same Kairie to lie and defend their friends, though Ian resigned he seems to have gotten closer and deeper into the dlp, while the uwp man seems all but one with the dlp. Looking from outside is it not fair to conclude that it appears to me as the dlp habors, upholds and one with top ranking men who are before the courts for allegedly a serious crime involving a minor? By the way who leaked the childs confession

      Dominican men/women stand up for your children protect them from the wicked men who don’t care about them. It’s not about money or food it’s about letting the children be children, My God what is happening to those women in position are they waiting for when it happen to them to speak out , what about the 7 women in the Government and what about the speaker’s mouth did her Boss pin it up, It’s a shame how children a treated in Dominica today. And to those mothers who are selling their daughters for piece of the pie you are sick and need help.
      I listened when UWP representative from St . .Joseph spoke the other evening and she was brilliant she spoke from the heart for those children plus she is a mother, now can any other women top her speech about children The people should ask themselves a question what have labor done for them.. 15 years..you cannot eat rum, wood and other material things .. tell the PM yes but no thanks this time around.

    Here we go again, no law no constitution. When the man says he is not doing nowhere, I take it to seriously mean, nowhere, period. Does it disguisedly mean even the court case. Does Pinard know something, we Dominicans do not know, as far as his case is concerned. Is it a case, Skeritt can get away with many things, he, as Skeritt’s brother and friend, according to Skeritt, can also get away with his bad doings. The case has not yet come to the courts, we don’t know what will be the outcome, but we are told by the man, he isn’t going nowhere. Is his case resting somewhere in Limbo awaiting judgement day by God. Those of us who were thinking that their could be jail time for the monstrous crime he allegedly committed against the minor, the man is giving the impression, we better think again. Like he said, he isn’t doing anywhere. Like my Dad would say, it appears , matter dead, before it even began.

    By Skerrit bringing Ian Pinard,on a DLP platform, knowing what Ian Pinard was arrested, charged, and still under bail for allegedly a very serious crime according to court documents, I understtand Skerrit is indirectly telling Dominicans the following:

    1. He, the DLP, and Ian Pinard are one and they justify the alleged actions of Ian Pinard no matter what he was arrested for

    2. They are saying, that this DLP is not concerned about the future of Dominica

    3. To hell with the alleged minor and her scars she has to deal with, the rest of her life because in his mind and the mind of the DLP, the allegations made Ian a hero

    4. Skerrit is confirming Dominica has no law or constitution that can stop him from doing whatever he wants to

    DNO, I know you don’t like to post anything that makes the DLP look bad, but I was very careful not to say anything that would legally or otherwise affect the posting of my concern. Skerrit did not say what I said, but that’s what I get from…

    Forget about what Ian said because he is an embarrassment no matter how one looks at the cause for this by-election. The presence of this man on a DLP platform is just unbelievable, and if anything, it’s a reminder why Dominicans should demand the resignation of this administration.

    Ian told us the reason for his resignation is because of allegations of inappropriate behavior against a minor. True or false, that is embarrassing for a minister. However, the police arrested him and the court charged him for a very serious crime with a minor. That’s a fact and not an allegation! To see the government of Dominica still aligning itself in public with this man & owner of the radio station leaves me to wonder if DA is a real country.

    I know Skerrit is PM, the commissioner &the judge of DA and what he says goes. But how does he justify what was arrested for? Even if you make him the winner of this case, like others, what if he knows he did it? Shame on the DLP! DA is lost like wild…

    This says alot about Denise Charles, if she going to have Ian holding her hand after those “allegations” against him. But then again..you’ll think politicians care about you? and your children?

    If the “Untrue” allegations was against Denise Charles Daughter or against the Pm’s Daughter even if they are UNTRUE ALLEGATIONS, think they would be walking hand in hand with Ian?
    but no…is a poor man child so….sweep that under the rug and move on.
