Samuel Raphael lying through the teeth – Linton fires back

Linton said Raphael had not produced the evidence he asked for

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton has accused hotelier Sam Raphael of ‘lying through his teeth,’ saying he has not produced evidence that the United Workers Party (UWP) was involved in the alleged sale of diplomatic passports.

The latest salvo from Linton was delivered on Q95’s Talk on the Block on Tuesday afternoon on a matter that has been a topic of much discussion in Dominica in the past weeks.

Linton had asked Raphael to produce evidence after Raphael dropped a bombshell recently saying the UWP is guilty of the very thing it has been accusing the Dominica Labour Party (DLP)-led government of doing, that is, selling diplomatic passports. (The government has denied it is in the business of selling diplomatic passports).

On Tuesday, July 11, Raphael released a statement which he said contained the evidence that Linton had asked for. He said there were no MOUs of the alleged diplomatic passport sales to six individuals in Switzerland, which he described as an “under the table transaction” however, there were wire transfers and checks which “comprised prominent financial records that cannot be refuted.”

But Linton was not impressed, saying they did nothing in terms of the type of evidence he had demanded.

“I made the call for evidence, by which I mean a body of truth, a body of fact that can validate beliefs or proposition or statements that people are making,” he stated. “I was not querying whether Sam Raphael had received money on the behalf of the UWP because I have been reliably informed that he did receive money on the behalf of the UWP.”

He added, “And so this rattling off of account numbers and amounts received over periods and so on did nothing for me in terms of the evidence that I requested because I did not dispute, nor that the people in the party I spoke to dispute, that he received money for and on behalf of the party.”

Linton said the question that has to be asked is, what was the money for?

“He (Raphael) wants the people of Dominica to accept on his say-so that it was for diplomatic passports but I have not heard that from the other people that he supposedly involved within the party at the time,” he stated. “Who do I believe? Sam Raphael, who is obviously lying through his teeth for favours from (Prime Minister Roosevelt) Skerrit right now, trying to destroy the political opposition in order for him to get his monies to build Jungle Bay at Morne Acouma, to build his cottages and his villas and to sell them and to make his money?”

Linton said it appears that Raphael had no problems with the UWP in the past but all of a sudden has a problem with the party in 2017.

“He had no issue with what he claims he did then, in all of the years, that has gone by since 2005, you are only now coming to a recognition that what you were doing or what you claimed you were doing at the time was wrong?” he stated.

He stated that the other people that Raphael claimed he worked with have denied that they were involved.

“That is why I wanted to see what I asked for,” Linton said. “Evidence. Not Sam say-so because there is nothing that Sam Raphael can say that I will believe because as far as I am concerned, he had established his downright dishonesty and he has established the fact that he is prepared to do anything at all to gain the favour of Roosevelt Skerrit in ensuring that he will have passport money to build the new Jungle Bay at Morne Acouma.”

The Opposition Leader went on to say that Raphael had in fact confirmed in his statement that the UWP did not sell any diplomatic passport.

“As a matter of fact he has confirmed today, in his statement today, that the UWP did not sell any diplomatic passports, he has confirmed that straight and plain but he also telling you at the same time I have my politics to play, I have a political party and somebody I don’t like, to destroy.”

    Dominicans cannot come to Dominica to vote, yet political party going on a mission trip to raise money, selling deals in advance for campaign money.The bottom line is we seeing CBI money but campaign money still sleeping since 2004.Where is d Money?Me not calling name and me looking to hear the game.

    Haha, Linton is so petty. Ok why did these individuals, not Dominicans, with no investments in Dominica “donate/ invest” that kinda money into your political campaign? There was never going to be a MOU, you know that.. :lol: :lol: .. But keep on drilling holes into you sinking ship, it’s not long now…

    July 12, 2017

    Wow, I understand Sam wants to shut Linton up but he is no better than Linton. He is as guilty as the UWP party. If selling diplomatic passport is wrong it’s wrong on every level I don’t care what party you support. You assisted in the transaction which was wrong then and it’s wrong today. What I don’t understand is why UWP management don’t stop Linton if they know this kind of evidence is floating around. The UWP party is way to reckless and as long as Linton is at the helm they will go nowhere.

    Mr. Linton Please read this one, or someone who has read it please inform him

    Do not get dissuaded from you focus by Tony Astaphans and Sam Raphael who were only sent to spew garbage for the PM. Do not get dissuaded by these men. Keep your focus. Its a realistic means of raising money, go out and seek funds to run the country.

    Quite frankly I am confused as to why Linton is barking so hard at Sam Raphael when he was not the leader of the party at that time, why isnt Hector John, Eddison James or Ron Green coming out with statements when they were at the forefront of the party at that time. Linton need to worry how he going to pay all his debt and not worry about what a wealthy business man has to say because clearly its not bothering John, James or Green.

    PS…..$300 a month for one portion of your debt so what about the others…..I am just saying

    Hon Lennox Linton,

    You’re a beacon of DEMOCRACY and STRONG LIGHT that can be seen from far away to us D/cans. Your HONEST heart produce HONEST actions and it’s the first chapter in the book of WISDOM.

    Not all of us have sold out to a lack of “COMMITMENT TO OPENNESS”, “TRANSPARENCY” and “ACCOUNTABILITY” in all government’s operations, activities and decision-making processes. There has been a massive increase in political corruption in recent years largely due to sharp increase in election expenditure and a growing nexus among politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen. They have drained away social capital and earned resentment from the people. Evidently, the political and administrative elites are quickly losing people’s trust. The reason corruption is growing is not because of a lack of controlling mechanism, but it is because of the basic flaws in the system. It is also due to an unwillingness among the concerned actors to pursue the right course of action.

    Linton I now ready to give it to boss. I was never a fan of UWP and really didn’t like you; but after listening to the accusations of Sam last week, your response to Sam, your very credible and detailed expose’ Sunday night, where you called names, gave Passport #, read correspondence, and up to this day neither the PM, nor Mano, or Alick, whose names were called, have been able to challenge you or try to clear their name but instead used Sam Raphael to make a very big fool of himself, I now embrace you Mr. Linton as the true hope for Dominica at this time. Mr. Skerrit you have crushed me sir because after the death of my friend Pierro I supported you fully, though with much questions after hearing Tony the day after the death of Pierro, on what he said Pierro told him and Albert. I still have u a chance partly because I didn’t want UWP to win and you to me was the best man to keep them out. But to see how you have wrecked the country I can’t take it no more, country first

    • July 12, 2017

      You were always a poto UWP. What was said on Sunday was just a repeat of old allegations and the usual guilt by association. Absolutely nothing new was mentioned, it was Linton repeating what he has been saying for the past 10 years with no proof.

    “Linton said it appears that Raphael had no problems with the UWP in the past but all of a sudden has a problem with the party in 2017”. In the foregoing quotation, remove the words “Raphael” and “UWP” replace them with “Crispin” and “DLP” in the same order. Politics make strange bedfellows.

  17. July 12, 2017

    The question that Sam and his band of mouton Batalie are not answering is Where on God’s green earth did UWP get the Diplomatic passports they sold? If I don’t own a car; I’m not the sales agent for cars then how could I possibly sell a car? Will all or any of those smart people out there explain to me? I’m caught in a world of illiterates and ignorance help me please get out of there.

    • July 12, 2017

      Good try at spinning this. This is political fundraising where political parties make promises to potential donars in exchange for campaign funding. UWP did not win so they could not deliver on the promise. Since UWP is admitting that they received the funds, why can’t they be honest and transparent and disclose who the funds came from and why were the funds given. In the meantime while we sit in the silent zone waiting for James and others to respond, I will believe Mr. Raphael.

    July 11, 2017

    Dominicans. Enjoy Skerritt. But too late shall be the cry.

  19. My fellow Dominicans, we have all been taught by our Parents that two wrongs does not make a right. This back and forth between Linton and Raphael really has no relevance in relation to the real issue at hand. The issue that we are confronted with now is the appointment of secret diplomats that has brought scrutiny and shame to our Country by these said “Diplomats” being arrested for serious crimes on the international stage. These diplomatic appointments are and were in direct contravention of the laws set forth by the Vienna Convention with regards to the appointments of foreign Diplomats of which Dominica is a signatory. We cannot just ignore these issues and turn it into a “you did it so we can do it too” debate…not while our economy continues to decline and correspondent banking regulations are crippling our access to much needed revenue. As a nation, we must hold our leaders accountable no matter who we support.

    • With that said, it does not matter if Sam Raphael is lying or telling the truth…wrong is wrong! As a people we should not support wrongdoing then or now. You must ask yourself how is Sam Raphael’s allegations going to promote and push forward good governance practices and policies that will make us a better more stronger Country. Alleging that you were party to wrongdoings 12 years ago can in no way push the needle forward towards better and more responsible governance in Dominica. It simply muddies the water and makes it difficult to focus on the real issues OF THE DAY! Dominica is faced with a serious lack of manufacturers, exporters and exportable resources. We are faced with serious issues of unemployment and poverty and the reliance on passport sales as our sole economic lifeblood. We are faced with a dying Agricultural sector and a struggling Tourism sector, high prices, high taxes and a rising violent crime rate. These are the REAL issues, not Sam!

      July 12, 2017

      This is the most nonsensical comment you have ever written. Why write such foolishness. To suggest that Linton and Raphael has no relevance in relation to the real issue at hand is somewhat disingenuous by you. Why defend something with such an apathetic argument, this not going to help the political agenda you are defending, it only shows disgust. Regarding The Vienna Convention on diplomatic appointments, I challenge you to show me how Dominica came to be in direct contravention of the laws set forth by The Vienna Convention, have any Governments made a protest against Dominica for violating The Vienna Convention regarding diplomatic appointments to their Country.

      When you say quote “As a nation, we must hold our leaders accountable no matter who we support” Doesn’t Linton fall under that umbrella, is he not accountable for the things he has said and done. When will you stop putting your partisan political beliefs above the truth.

    The UWP leader is trying his best to stay relevant, but going back to the CBI discourse, is like a” HIT RECORD” with no shelf life, its time to move on to the issues that’s really troubling for Dominica presently, DRUG TRAFFICKING and MURDER PLUS. Apparently succeeding GOV’TS have benefited from the CBI initiative, and it is beginning to become a national distraction, the time is now for the GOV’T and opposition to come together with one voice against the current influx of COCAINE and MURDER. If not discussed at this opportune time, it will be felt in the living and bedrooms of DOMINICA. The onus is on every DOMINICAN to fight this rampaging EVIL of COCAINE and MURDER PLUS. Bob D.

    “I made the call for evidence, by which I mean a body of truth, a body of fact that can validate beliefs or proposition or statements that people are making,” he stated.

    I am dumbfounded, totally discombobulated. For years Mr Linton has been making identical statements, claims and allegations with no evidence. He admitted that he has no evidence on Huffington Post and on CBS. Yet he has the audacity to say he wants irrefutable evidence. I dunno who hates who more, but clearly Sam has a lot more evidence than Linton. It is time Linton answer his own requests and GIVE US EVIDENCE.

    The Labor party has sent out its hatchet man Sam Raphael, to do their dirty job, to try to distract the people and to try to change the topic on the airwaves ! He promised proof, now he is saying that “goat eat his homework”, so he cannot provide it because it is sealed in the goat belly! Sorry, that never could work, and cannot work now. He thinks that this is a viable excuse for his inability to present any proof or evidence, not just hear say and conjecture. He needs to retrieve the “package” if there really is one, clear all doubts, and let truth stand.

    Sam Raphael embarrassed himself to say the least. Look, Sam went on Q95 two weeks ago and dropped a bomb I thought would have finished with the UWP. Mr. Linton came in the same day and asked for evidence, which Tony said Sam had. I expected Sam today to go on Q with the evidence and provide Matt with a hard copy of it. Instead the man went to hide behind a video like Osama Bin Ladin and attempted to read something some lawyer must have written for him and his reading skills was so embarrassing that even Skerrit was disappointed. Sam, you really made a fool of yourself and caused me to throw all the respect I once had for you. You provided NO EVIDENCE! If anything you damaged your future for good and I really think you should be investigated because you implicated yourself and yourself alone my brother.

      1. He wasn’t the leader at the time. But he did say based on his internal investigation he was informed that Sam was one of the persons who sourced funds for the party during that time. HE also confirmed that the money was received by SAM, however there was never any agreement or expectation of anyone receiving a diplomatic passport!

      It is not what the money was used for? we know what it was used for. campaign promises and personal benefits. the question has to be. What was the basis for white Europeans (I assume) to send their hard earned money to a minority political party in a far off land? What was in there for the six who agreed to fund the campaign of the party? A party that is not known to be involved in any humanitarian or peaceful engagement on behalf of a world or social movement that requires international support. E.g Lybia supported the black liberation movement in South Africa. So millions of dollars were sent to Africa. Even our very own Rosie Douglas was involved in that struggle of liberation. So the question remains. Outside of the promises made, which is at the centre of the discussion, what qualifies the UWP in a poor underdeveloped country to qualify for such largesse? That is the million dollar question.

      @Pooshoompeng – So Lennox doing the damage to the opposition eh?? Really?? So much damage that Skerrit & his band are seemingly getting more & more desperate to find a way to remove him as leader of the UWP eh.

      I would think that if Lennox is doing so much damage to the UWP, then Skerrit & Co would be doing all in their power to ensure Lennox remains as leader of the UWP because if he is damaging the UWP as you claim, the Labour party surely stands to benefit.

      But no, entities in the Labour party are using all sorts of covert & overt machinations including psychological propaganda to see if Lennox can be removed as UWP leader.

      So tell me why you think this is so? For sure, it’s not because Skerrit loves the UWP so much that he wants them to have another leader ‘better & more powerful’ than Lennox.

      If Lennox is so damaging to the UWP, why are anti-UWP forces so obsessed with getting Lennox out of the UWP & its leadership??? 8-O 8-O 8-O

They don’t think for themselves, they cannot get Lennox to listen and the workers supporters are obsessed with skerrit. As a matter of fact this whole thing has turned into a skerrit-linton affair, beyond the normal parameters of politics. Linton is anti-social and self -engrossed. Skerrit is laid back and secretive, but amiable and always 10 steps ahead. Lennox lack leadership qualities. He is thin-skinned and hot headed. He is dragging our country through the mud in his so called attempt to save it. I rather throw my vote than give it to workers again. I tired!

    It is rather baffling to think that anyone would consider the UWP as a viable option. That Organization attempts to depict the Party as the most honest, holier than thou entity. Truthfully, the UWP has skeletons in their closet. They were quick to demote the deputy leader, however, the evidence shows, it was just a vicious ploy to undermine the young man who seemed to be way ahead of his time. Mr. Linton and his defiant, combative style has caused many to look the other way, his constant cry that the DLP is shady while the UWP is without blemish is unrealistic, allowing, the most gullible among us to question his sanity. The latest rant last Sunday, was a clear indication that he is not capable of steering the ship in the right direction. The revelation of his two sources, one based in T&T, the other in Houston was astounding. Today, I am further convinced that the UWP is a Party based on games, therefore, the people of Dominica will continue to reject them at the polls.

    Sam has failed miserably to convince me. How can a party in opposition even sell passports muchness for Diplomatic Passports? Ah magwaysah Sam. Who tell you to lie to make them look good? We always knew that Sam was involved in fund raising for the UWP but selling passports “under the table”? Sadly, the Immigration Department has no records of such passports numbers so where these passports came from? The records of all our passports, diplomatic or otherwise are kept by the police. So army boy you lie, lie, lie! :twisted: :twisted:

    Politics sure makes strange bed fellows but Sam has sold his soul to the Devil for HIS benefit and therefore all credibility is gone. Period!! What a shame when we seek to destroy the future of our country for 30 pieces of silver. Bravo LL, once again you have made me very proud.

      Sam says that he has the evidence, it is not Edison to bring it forth, its Sam. So far Sam has not shown any evidence that the money was for diplomatic passports. He is now the laughing stock. In the entire episode, didn’t you realize that only ONE name is being mentioned? LENNOX LINTON! Is it hatred or a distraction to prevent the public from concentrating on Honourable Lennox Linton’s extremely brilliant disclosure on Sunday?

    “He (Raphael) wants the people of Dominica to accept on his say-so that it was for diplomatic passports but I have not heard that from the other people that he supposedly involved within the party at the time,” he stated. “Who do I believe? Sam Raphael, who is obviously lying through his teeth for favours from (Prime Minister Roosevelt) Skerrit right now, trying to destroy the political opposition in order for him to get his monies to build Jungle Bay at Morne Acouma, to build his cottages and his villas and to sell them and to make his money?”

    That is a mouthful, Linton! You have the man on heart or what? The truth is ugly and it burns you right?

    This evidence from Sam will never come, because he knows that he is not genuine. I have firmly and categorically dismissed him and his concoction, that money received was for diplomatic passports. However, I have given him credit for being a slave and servile follower of those who must be laughing at his feeble and frail defense in a scheme that he has deeply implicated himself.
    Again this is a man I respected, but ALAS PAPA, if these are examples of the type of men that Dominica has, well we are doomed.
    By the way, with all the other characters in SAM’S episode, why do all of them have the same name, Lennox Linton?
    Isn’t it clear that something is wrong?

    Sam Raphael …………………………………………………………………..

    That troubled guy has benefitted from sales of our passports more than entire communities and the villagers who live there.

    Sam, what about the insurance money you received for those cottages in Jungle bay at Delices? you and you alone enjoying it.

    Sam, what about the DEBT you owe to Dominica and Dominicans. The millions of $$$$$$$$ DEBT that the Skerritt DLP Gov’t itself took you to court for not paying. So how comes DLP Gov’t did not appear in court and so that huge DEBT would not be paid? Tell us about the DEAL. How many poor people, how many Dominicans had, will ever have their DEBT forgiven?
    Sam, on top of all that, million dollar DEBT forgiven, INSURANCE money you get in the million, you again get acres of our land at Soufriere. You are now an agent to SELL our passports to make more millions.
    Lennox is a THORN in you all sides with…

      The TRUTH from Lennox have you all going mad, berserk. The international Community know all about those ‘SECRET” passport-selling deals.

      Sing Sam, Sing for your supper. Sing for more millions, Try to denigrate Lennox, but many of your ilk have and continue to try to literally KILL the man for SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER. Good try Sam. GREEDY. SELFISH. Do you love Dominica, Dominicans, or your POCKET?

      You are so disturbed that you are speaking FOOLISHNESS about Monfared could come to Dominica to Sue Lennox? Come to DA from where, Iran jail, after those millions/billions were embezzled? Are you Mad?

        Sam was not a greedy troubled guy when he sang your anti-Skerrit tunes with you all, was he?

    It is deeply disturbing to me that two grown men continue to engage in this very public, childish banter. Obviously this is based on nothing concrete or on matters important to national interest but, but rather on selfishness and an infantile hatred of each other. However, what is even more distressing is the fact the Mr. Linton indicated on talk on the block today, that some of his supporters have asked him to let this go but he is not. I keep saying to the disgust of many of you the UWP has no chance with this guy as a winning opposition presents itself as an alternative government not a complaining child.

    I also heard you say Mr.Linton that Sam made a deal with the govt to keep the money which he owes and you know that is not true,Matt had to tell you that is a strong statement.It is recorded.

    Total unmitigated rubbish! A down payment for future sale is a contract. Why is LL defending this. Let the responsible members of the UWP of that time confront the issue. There is never any evidence suitable for the UWP.

      The biggest tragedy here for the UWPwee is that Linton did not have to take on this fight!! The chap could have thrown cold water on Sam’s allegations long ago and just let sleeping dogs lie. Instead, the arrogant challenged Sam to a battle that he cannot win. His decision to add fuel to the Sam Raphael fire says a lot abut this gentleman’s ability to lead.

      He must now be very sad that the “bombshelll” he had hoped to burst under the DLP’s behind on the weekend is now eclipsed by a his suicide vest. And THAT is what you guys want to lead Dominica??

      Pas la!!!
