UWP condemns Christmas morning attack on lawyer’s home; calls on PM to get Scotland Yard and FBI to reverse Dominica’s crime situation

Emanuel

The fire and burning of the home of Glenworth Emmanuel on Christmas morning, which from all indications cannot be considered an accident, is the most  serious and dangerous crime of the year.

Such an attack on an elder of 84 years and his wife while asleep, on a senior, distinguished and highly respected lawyer, and on a man with the courage to attack the scourge of corruption facing Dominica head-on by taking Mr. Skerrit’s lawyer to court, is without doubt , one which calls for the maximum condemnation, and indeed maximum action by Dominicans.

The United Workers Party condemns this next level of seemingly organized crime, seemingly being orchestrated to eliminate witnesses who come forward with evidence of corruption implicating the government and their agents.    The UWP calls on all Dominicans to take maximum action to show their condemnation.

This vicious and criminal attack on the home of lawyer Glenworth Emmanuel on Christmas morning  more than any other event in our country this year should signal the deep crisis into which Dominica has been plunged.

Following the fraudulent elections of Christmas 2009, and  Prime Minister Skerrit’s unwillingness or inability to put a halt to the continuing acts of corruption and unaccountable governance, this crisis  is the next level in the breakdown of the rule of law and the undermining of Dominica’s democracy.  What we have seen over the year is: The IPO Commission has been unable to bite; inquiries called for have been ignored;  secrecy and blocked information dominating parliament and government; government call  for boycott of a private sector business has taken precedence over petitions signed by thousands of citizens; and government completely blocking all efforts of the Electoral Commission towards electoral reform.

Now we see attempted murder, and fire bombing of a private home on that holy night when the message of peace, justice and goodwill should fill the air.

The UWP condemns this outrageous and vicious criminal act, and the perpetrators of this heinous crime.

UWP calls on the president, the DPP,  media, Christian churches,  Bar Association,  trade unions, National Council of Women, academic community, the Diaspora and all right thinking Dominicans, to spare no words in condemning this vicious crime.

The United Workers Party also calls on the Roosevelt Skerrit government to immediately set up  an independent, professional and emergency investigation team involving the police and including other international crime agencies such as Scotland Yard and the FBI in order to provide personal security and to bring the perpetrators and those behind them, to justice.

    Dear Mr Glenworth Emmanuel may I take this opportunity to pass my condolences to you and your family in regards to this despicable and horrendous act of terrorism although I have never met you I do feel for you, The United Workers Party have called on the Rossevelt Skerrit government to set up an independent professional and emergency investigation team to examine what too place on your property for example bring in the FBI or Scotland Yard, but surely the first port of call should be the local authorities and if the are unable to ascertain who the culprit or culprits were then they can seek out side help, but why go to that extreme in Dominica everyone knows each others business, we all know who was behind this fire bombing of your property which may I add is unacceptable. I would suggest that you contact the (UWP) favourite son lennox Linton who is after all an illustrious investigative Journalist, but I can foresee a problem there lennox is selective in what he wants to investigate, therefore he has compromise his impartibility,look at the bigger picture,why would someone who have just set fire to your home should deliberately leave behind the evidence namely the bottle that was used to carry the gas,you are a lawyer figure this one out (scary) as you may be aware there are some people out there who would like a (Coup d etat) illegally seizure of the government. unfortunately the balance of power between criminals and the police has swung too far from the side of the law.

    Mr Green must be reminded of the events of August 12th 1979 that tore the hearts and terrorised the entire village of La Plaine and the entire south East for one year. He should also be reminded of those transparent leaders in La Plaine who sell agricultural land at $15.00 a square foot and receive cheques on the names of other individuals to evade the IPO.

    Ron Claims “This crisis is the next level in the breakdown of the rule of law and the undermining of Dominica’s Democracy.”

    He is so right. This crisis was brought about by he, Ron and the UWP who over the past five (5) years have done nothing other than to perpetuate hatred, animosity, crime and violence through the use of phrases like

    “Put your boots on and put your foot down” “We are ready to fight them” “I will take the first bullet” “Bring down Skerritt at all costs”

      HAWKS ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE SUPERIOR VISION apparently this one doesn’t and is probably a one eyed hawk. Didn’t you read the entire statement look below at the summary paragraph

      “The United Workers Party also calls on the Roosevelt Skerrit government to immediately set up an independent, professional and emergency investigation team involving the police and including other international crime agencies such as Scotland Yard and the FBI in order to provide personal security and to bring the perpetrators and those behind them, to justice”

      If the UWP are the guilty ones won’t the investigation that they call for, reveal that they are? And then we can take them to task and have them pay for the alleged crimes and violence
      I surmise that its either one or all of four things: you conviniently didn’t read the whole statement, you are just too dumb to understand what you read, you are just so full of hate or you are a follower of the Jim Jones like crusade who drank the RED poison in Jonestown in the 70’s
      Most likely its all four

    Ron Green by releasing this statement proves one important point to all level headed Dominicans. The fact that he, Ron, is a political leech who apparently draws his strength from the ignorance of less fortunate individuals.

    When he says the action is “one which calls for maximum condemnation and indeed maximum action by Dominicans” what action is he calling for, even before the police have investigated the matter?

    Demonstrations? Burning of Flags? Terrorism?

    And again, “UWP condemns this next level of seemingly organized crime seemingly being orchestrated to eliminate witnesses who come forward with evidence of corruption implicating the government and their agents.”

    Hi lovely Dominica. it so sad, I don’t wish arson for my enimies if i do have any. I will not believe anytrue dominican will do a crime like this. it look like a hired job from outside. this doom ass things put my island on the crime list. drugs are not a crimnal offence to me, as innocent murders, willful Arson, Theft and rape. It’s greed, hate, envy. Names of caribbean countries which are mension in the news crime rate are growing rapidly. Trinidad, Jamaica,Guyana, St.Lucia,Dominica, St.Kitts & the Nedelands Antilles.Don’t forget we depend on Tourists. Please don’t drag dominicans more in the Drain.

    Call in Scotland Yard and the FBI to investiagte.

    I’m not surprised they would call for outside help to investigate a suspected arson attack. Why are they not asking for help to investigate the unsolved murders. They are using this unfortunate incident for their own benefit. Shame on them.

    Let the police and fire department for once show what they are capable of. Let them show that they can do the job that they are paid to do without being party motivated.

    Scotland Yard and the FBI have their own problems investigating crimes in their own backyard.

    This Christmas Day crime has left too many questions and name calling. UWPITES are blaming Labourites; LABOURITES blaming it on the opposition, some blame it on Isidore while others blame it on Emanuel. We know commissioner Carrette, Deputy commissioner Carbon, who is from Viellcase as well and was promoted by the PM, will NEVER conduct a fair and honest investigation and one that we can all trust. AS a result, we will never know who did this devilish act. We need to do like Miss Charles did to the UWP during that “bugging issue” and get an independent firm to conduct an independent investigation. Only then we will stop blaming it on this person and this party. Unless this is done, we can do what we want but public trust will be gone for good and Dominica will definitely go down a bad road as friends will become enemies and homes will be devided because of politics. So for the good of all of us and the country, please mr pm, if you are really concerned about our integrity and I believe you are, please spend the money and give us an independent, fair, and honest investigation. THE COUNTRY NEEDS IT At THIS TIME OF OUR DEVELOPMENT. Anything short of that will be a serious blow to our beloved country.

I know Daniel Carbon very well and the only reason he got promoted by the Pm was because of his loyalty to Skerrit. I don’t need to ask around because I know what I am talking about.

    I do not understand the position taking by some ppl.. Have the police or fire dept. made a decision as to if the fire was committed by some outside force.

    If not this must just be looked at as a fire that took place at the man home.

    I take it Lennox and the UWP are investigators that have come to the point that fire was set by a person or persons which means it was a firebomb.

    Therefore the roll of the police and fire Dept. has no merit.

    The question i now ask is how did they come to that conculsion? They carry out all the fire test?They talk to anyone in the area?What qualification do they have in fire drills and test?

    As per the UWP and the so call freedom kings of DA (lennox,Angelo & Matt),the Fire Chief and Police Commissioner are all part of the set up.

    The big question each person must now ask is was that a regular fire or was it a fire bomb?

    The only person or persons that can tell us that is the fire Dept.

    It is real sad that 99% of the information that is put out there,for the world to see, about Dominica is negative and politically driven. My initial thought, when I heard the news was that these ‘hate’ shows has finally gotten someone so worked up that they acted. Actions speaks louder than words. If there is evidence bring it forward in the mean time let peace reign.

    Remember the UWP Bugging Scandal that they created in the hope of damaging Dame Eugenia Charles?

    Dame Eugenia called their bluff and had a thorough enquiry and it was shown that the whole thing was fabricated by the leadership of the UWP and that there was no truth in their allegations at all.

    Remember? Is the UWP trying this tactic again?

    I wonder if people’s eyes are opening now to the possibility that the UWP could have something to do with this incident? They had the most to gain, none of their other strategies were working.

    Look how quickly they move to score cheap political points. It’s all political.

    We have a court case which is supposedly between two former business partners, yet Ron Green describes it as “a man with the courage to attack the scourge of corruption facing Dominica head-on by taking Mr. Skerrit’s lawyer to court.”

    Anyone who didn’t figure out yet that the case was politically motivated then there is the evidence staring you in your face.

    I don’t know this Isidore man but he must be strong to handle all of this. Purely out of the UWP refusal to accept their rejection at the polls, his reputation has been dragged into the gutter. Following the judgement in the Q95 Court of Justice in which Lennox Linton is prosecutor, defense lawyer, jury and supreme court judge, he is now a convicted thief and arsonist.

    All of this before any evidence has been presented in the real court.

      you all make Dominica and Dominicans look and sound so stupid that even the red ants we have want to leave. They just feel embarrased by the high level of stupidity that we possess. When news of the fire broke on 12/25/10, You had this to say on Dec. 26, 2010 at 8:06pm “If it comes out that Skerrit and co had anything to do with this then that’s where my DLP support comes to an end.” On Dec 27, 2010 Someone who calls himself Jim had this to say in response to your statement “You are claiming to be a DLP supporter who you think you can fool. Why put our beloved pm in your crap!!!! you hater, we will find you out.” In jim’s mind you are a hater, you are not a DLP supporter and most importantly the threat because of your pretence “WE WILL FIND YOU OUT.” You so not taking shame that today you cominig with more crap just so that they don’t find you out because anytime somone does not agree with the policies of Skerrit you all are ready to find them out and as a result, even the red ants want to leave DA and disassociate themselves with people that are hungry and threatening.

        @ follower: I stand by my statement that if Skerrit was involved I will not support such activities. Emphasis on IF!!

        Every indication points to this being a UWP plot and if you don’t see that possibility then you need to accept the fact that you are not too bright! You have persons turning up on the scene immediately placing blame on the DLP. Lennox Linton suddenly turned into a CSI expert. The UWP immediately issuing a statement trying to score cheap political points. The only thing substantially damaged being an insured vehicle. The arsonist conveniently leaving a plastic bottle with a petrol scent for Mr. Emanuel to find.

        The UWP needs a pretext to justify the violence they are trying to instigate to overthrow a democratically-elected gov’t, and this is it.

        Anti hate, Let’s not be confused about this. I Don’t support Skerrit period. There are no two ways about it and I don’t believe he is in anyway involed in this non sense. Skerrit is smart enough to know he would not score political points by this. I don’t like his policies because they are currupt in nature, unjust and such conducts have brought down the name of Dominica. I don’t like UWP either and that’s why I did not vote in 2009. I did not think they had a vision to take Dominica foward neither do I think they have one now. But I support there call for an INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION so we could all know who did this evil to our country on the day we celebrate the birth of our Lord. If you guys are so wise and open to justice, instead of writting all this nonsense and most likely falsely accusing a person who might be very innocent, why don’t we all join UWP and call for an independent investigation? What’s wrong with that? The way day is devided there is no way we will get a fair investigation by the police since the police department is politicised. What brought respect to cricket is when ICC decided to get independent umpires to refree test cricket. So instead of twisting the matter, join uwp and call for fair investigation in this matter

      You guys are so ignorant and blind in this country and I can understand why we are not going anywhere. Too many ignorant people! Put politics aside and tell if the level of violence and crime is not on the rise. Yes on that day we know too brothers were killed in Grandbay. Do we need FBI or Scotland yard to help us investigate? No! In fact the police already have someone questioning and soon we will have an arrest. Do we need help with the fire? absolutely! Emanuel is in court with Mr. Isidore and we know the police protection Isidore got from the government and WE ALL KNOW the police, Mr Carrette and the PM will never conduct a fair investigation and that’s not good for our nation. Furthermore, if we get help from an independent firm be it FBI or Scott’s then whoever committed this devilish, demonic act will be known and we all will stop falsely accusing, Labourites, UWPites or Freedomites for a crime they did not commit and then honest investigation will tell us who did it.I strongly support the call and let’s do whatever is possible to find that person (persons).

    The UWP scared the living day lights off me in 2005 when they tried to create havoc days before the 2005 election by blocking the Atkinson road preventing persons from going home. Eddision tried but with the steady leadership of the p.m. a blood bath was avoid.

    These men are desparate and will do anything to get back in power. I pray to God the the majority of Dominicans will see through all the scences of wrong doing they invent on a daily basis. There is no limit to the madness of matt, lennox, angelo, eddison, ron, john and the others will go.

    Dominicans be mindful of their ultimate goal, control. Imagine a country ruled by the uwp bandits. It is our civil responsibility not to allow this gang of decietful men to get any leadership rule in beautiful Dominica. Skerrit may have his faults like we all do but it pales in comparison to those of the men mentioned above.

    Show support for you country, show support for your future, show support to you children and ask the lord to give the Prime Minister the strenght and courage he needs to lead through very trying times.

    Stay on course Dominica and don’t be side tracked by the bandits in waiting.

    jeezzzzzzz…

    All this is really suspicious and looks ochestrated!!
    NO surprise at all …seeing the turn of events in the Isidore-Emanuel Matterl!! Desperate Actions indeed.

    All this has the UWP Stamp written all over it. When will you guys draw the line between politics and public/private affairs??

    UWP Quit wasting time going after Skerritt with accusation..haven’t you guys learned from the past? Is this what UWP is all about? Using Scare Tactics?? DO you guys sit and decide..how do I catch the public interest once more…we’re losing momentum here??? Is this what goes on behind close doors of UWP?

    Know when to QUIT!! The Public is saturated right now…we need action on the part of the opposition not the government. We can already see what they’re doing but what about U guys??
    Just talk .. rather formulate a plan and get your people in place that can actually lead the country.

    Freedom guys are regrouping…why don’t you guys do the same? Do you think that Brian Allyene speeches/attacks on certain matters..is just only out of concern? He’s testing the waters!! Don’t you think he may be the next Political leader??

    Address UWP issues then come forward then persons like me will be willing to listen as I did in the case of Mr. Brian Alleyne!!

When they themselves, exhibit such blatant and arrogant contempt for The Constitution and the Laws of the Land…..Do you really believe, that they want that kind of scrutiny?. With all the allegations of corruption and other things,that’s going on in the Country? Please, don’t hold your breath….

    ..Are you questioning the Government, the Police Force and their ability, or lack thereof, to investigate,and solve such matters?. Have your Govt. failed to secure and protect the Rights of the People?…….
    Don’t you have any confidence in your Law enforcement…..Are you suggesting that there won’t be a thorough investigation into the matter and those behind it,or that very little will be done to bring the perpetrator,or perpetrators to justice?.Don’t they have in interest in upholding the Law and defending The Constitution. Are some senior member,or members of the Police Force, politically influenced, and are being directed by certain Politician,or Politicians?.

    Well, a private Citizen(s), could hire a Private Investigator(s), to investigate such matters,but that could be quite costly indeed.

    Anyway………All the best……

    I think this guy or members of the UWP mob/posse set this fire.

    They (UWP) are desperate and things are looking bleak.

    If one were to really take the pulse of the people, they would see that the majority of Dominicans do not care about the UWP and their strategy is a failure.

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again.

    No one cares about Emmanuel…he or his wife did not die (thankfully) and he has insurance….material items can be replaced.

    He said he was up at that time and heard a noise but did not look out….

    Do you think the PM would be so careless, knowing that Lennox Matt and Angelo digging in every Rubbish Bin for evidence, to have someone act like this on his behalf?

  36. Just giving my 2 cents
    December 28, 2010

    Again and again, the UWP is proving why the MAJORITY of Dominicans did not vote for them!!!!!!!!!!

    I understand the need for this criminal activities in Dominica to stop. What i do not understand is the idea that the PM is responsible for every act of violence in this country.

    I understand that the circumstances of this is super fishy – but what i fial to understand is why is the UWP making these kinds of statements which insinuate that the PM and his crew is some how responsible.

    Why is the UWP insisting on claiming that ” a man with the courage to attack the scourge of corruption facing Dominica head on by taking Mr Skerrit’s lawyer to court>” Am i to assume that the scourge of corruption in DOminica is because of Mr Isidore?

    Am i to assume that by taking MR Isidore to court, Mr Emmanuel is taking the PM to court?

    Why the constant need to refer to Mr Isidore as the PM’s lawyer? Is that the only client Mr Isidore had?

    Why the need to continually make this case which is not about the PM, about the PM?

    And lastly…………. things are not always what they seem? Should we just jump to conclusions and sya that becasue Mr Isidore is 1 of the PM’s lawyers, then it’s one of the PM’s people who committed the crime!

    GET REAL? Motives – they can also be placed at the door of the UWP.

    And 1 final question – what makes this crime “most serious and dangerous crime of the year” – what happened to the execution of many other persons in soicety?

    So because the victim was a prominent member of society, his attack has more meaning than that of others who lost their lives?

    Or is it because he is suing the PM’s lawyer, that the UWP places so much importance on his life.

    UWP needs to stop trying to incite hatred and what they call “civil unrest”

    I know that Dominicans are NOT as stupid as these CLOWNS think!

    we are fed up with this personal vendetta

    why dont you all bring up alternatives, constructive suggestions in order to assist the PM and the DLP, WORK TOGETHER NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER. ME PERSONALLY, I am GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF THIS VISCIOUS COMMENTS WHICH ARE NOT MAKING ANY SENSE.

    yOU CONTINUE TO CLOWD THE PEOPLE MINDS WITH HATRED AND CONTEMPT. UNTIL WE CANT SEE ANY THING BUT THE DLP, SO USE ANOTHER STRATEGY

    when you all can come clean with fair and unprovoked contributions we will take all of you seriously in the meantime the more you all continue to spread HATE about THE PM THE MORE WE LOVE HIM, AND CANT SEE HIM DOING NO WRONG. GIVE US A CHANCE TO SEE FOR OURSELVES IF HE IS THAT BAD, THE ONLY BAD PEOPLE I AM SEEING IS THE ONES POSTING THE CONTEMPT ABOUT THE PM. YOU ALL ARE THE EVIL ONES.

    People have been making references to Rwanda in various postings. The gist of the Rwanda Massarce was simple. If one set of people in a country be it along ethnicity,religious, class or socio-political lines is constantly disenfranchised and kept in the state of abject hopelessness and dispossession they will rise up and destroy whosoever is oppressing them. The people in Rwanda who rose up did not use guns but cutlasses. As outrageous as it is for what was done and as dehumanizing as it was the genocide clearly showed that no one class or section of a people should be subjugated.

    December 28, 2010

    I suppose as well the UWP will file another news release, this time placing the gun which killed two in the Grabnd bay area on Christmas Day in the hands of Prime MInister Skerrit. Well Well with 61 of the popular vote, Skerrit really have the UWP on the ropes, so they willdo anything to bring down Skerrit. Surely to link Prime MInister Skerrit with a very unfortunate incident – criminal one at that, simply because an attorney who worked for him is now in a court matter invovling his former business partner is really stooping low. Ron green must ask himslef the question. How will that strategy add support to his party’s cause?.

    Crime will happen irrspecdtive of who is in government. Durinmg the tiem the UWP wasw on stage, the Prime Minister had the reason and occasion to go on radio and instituted a gun amnesty. It is true that the opposition did not support the cause – a foolish move I thought. Perhaps if they given active support to teh then government, we won’t be in the position we are in today. Who knows. The shoe is on the other feet and the now opposition is doing the same thing. By blaming Mr. Skerrit for every crime that is committed in teh country rather speak directly to the criminals the UWP is given tacit support for the continuation of crime, only to have an issue to talk about.

    All have the right to be free to agree and disagree. I emphasize, amicably.
    Whatever their political preference and stand on political matters, absolutely no one has a right to do such a thing. You do not take matters into your hands. You are totally wrong.
    God is saddened by your evil actions. You better think God for your own good and eventual salvation.
    We must always consider that God is taking note of our actions and that God will punish the perpetrators.
    I reside in Toronto. We have had such evil activities at Christmas. A couple’s home has been recently targeted a few times. The home was placed on the market for sale and someone caused his home to be on fire. The wife had just returned home from the hospital with a baby. They were fortunate to escape.
    At this point I do not know who the owners are and what has contributed to this. As the police conducts an investigation we may hear more on this matter.
    Society is to be transformed. If we hope to receive God’s blessing, graces and peace, it is imperative that we do good. Allow people their views, pros and cons but do not destroy them, their career or their property. This could also lead to loss of life.
    Those who do evil, do you not know what could happen to you later and in the coming year? Food for thought.
    There is so much I have to share with others about my perception of doing good that as we live and age, we may be happy, peaceful, healthy and contribute to the godly needs of others and not otherwise.
    The day the Lord calls us for our judgment will we be ready to happily enter His everlasting glorious Kingdom of love, peace and unity for having done what He has taught us and what the Church teaches us?
    Fellow Dominicans, YOU ARE NOT GOD! DO NOT PLAY GOD! LET GOD HANDLE ALL SITUATONS AS YOU PRAY TO HIM WITH A LOVING, HUMBLE AND CONTRITE HEART!
    May God enlighten all accordingly. May God bless Dominica and its nationals who specifically reside in Dominica. His peace to all!

    Promoting the rule of law in my Country should be one of the prioroties of the ruling Government. Establishing respect for the rule of law is fundamental to achieving the durable peace and stability that helps to sustain economic progress and development. As a citizen in the diasporra I try to balance the news I am reading however if this act alledegly criminal in nature was committed with political implications I am begining to get worried. The principle that everyone – from the individual right up to the State itself – is accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced and independently adjudicated, is a fundamental concept which we must protect dearly.

      I heard a response from the leadership of Dominica a couple months ago, in which it was stated that the crime in Dominica is not violent. If that statement was not irresponsible, I don’t know what is, and coming from the leader of the country. Look at the list of murders for 2010 put out by DNO, this does not include a whole list of other violent crimes, in which people lost body parts, property etc.
      I can see civil unrest in the near future, if we don’t attempt to take control, and find ways and means to cut down on crime in Dominica. What is the response of the government to all this, where is the ministry of security and defense, the legal department? We need to take this seriously and it needs to start from the top.

    Unfortunately there is no non-corrupt agency that you can call up to run interference.
    You might be able to get some retired agents to investigate, but you better check their backgrounds.

    Further more I think it is incumbent on the UWP to deal with the matter in a peaceful way. If we are trying to deal with crime then we cannot solve it with crime. So I think the statement on the maximum action should have been properly phrased. The UWP could be called up for inciting violence which I am sure it does not want.

      How did they do that again. Did they say like Astaphans, who said there will be war if they want skerrit to resign. Right now after listening to all this I am not saying I will never support DLP again but I have to question a number of things, which I did not see before.

      You clearly don’t understand the implications of this act on Dominica.

      You people are sooo gullible and foolish that not for once allu can stop and USE ALLU BRAIN.

      This labour party dirty gutter politics have taken over the cells in allu brain that no matter what the circumstance is, all we hear from allu is just a whole load of crap.

      but i wonder why Tony run and call Press conference in defense mode?….

      why did the journalist have to FORCE HIM to condemn the actions of whoever burnt the house?…

      why his OPENING STATEMENT was not a total condemnation of this criminal act?

      Why did he start off letting off steam at Emanuel about all what he did years ago to grandbay people and all that nonesense?

      All who want to remain blind that is them.

      Labour party have to make allu shame.

    Two places in this statement calls for maximum action by Dominicans. What exactly is maximum action? Did he take Mr. Skerrits lawyer to court or did he take his business partner to court. His court case has nothing to do with the fact that Mr. Isidore was Skerrits lawyer. It has to do with their business partnership. So how then is he attacking the “sourge of corruption facing Dominica” when if he did not have an issue with his business partner then there would be no case??

    I agree the circumstances are fishy but this statement was poorly phrased and makes it look like a political vandetta against the UWP.

      lol…your brain needs some specification. You are not even aware that the main details about this case is with respect to millions of dollars passing through the firm and going into the person accounts of THE GANG. That account was opened in the name of Emanuel and Isidore without Emanuel’s knowledge. There is a certain bank manager who was dismissed this year, GO FIGURE. Sot!

    So how did Mr. james arrive at all this information….. that it was in an attempt to destroy evidence. Why can’t these leaders say and do things as leaders and stop instigating trouble.
