UWP STATEMENT: Response to Government’s resistance to call for outside assistance

UWP Senator Ezekiel Bazil

The United Workers Party’s call for outside assistance in the investigation into the burning of the home and car of Mr. GON Emanuel, and the unwarranted attack on his life  that now notorious  Christmas morning is timely, genuine, honest and in the interest of Dominicans who are becoming victims of this Labour Party fear mongering system of governance.

The subsequent resistance to such call by Labour Party’s operatives such as Dr. Dublin can only be labeled as unfortunate but is expected from men who have a lot to hide and to gain. We are speaking here, of Dominica’s Non-resident Ambassador to Costa Rica and the Chairman of the Public Service Commission, a body created under section 84(1) of the Dominica Constitution Order and whose mission is “to provide relevant advised and administrative support to the public service commission”. Dr Dublin appears rather to be on a mission to pay back the Labour Party government?

We in the UWP, have always supported the police and have always pledged to work with them. We are however, mindful of the difficulty associated with their task, partly due to interference by this government as they (the police) seek to execute their duties. It is difficult to imagine that to date, after more than two weeks since the fire, nothing in that regard has come from the police – not even an “arrest on suspicion”?

We have called on this government in the past and we are doing so again to effectively train and equip the police in some targeted areas of policing and investigation in order to help curb the growing trend of lawlessness on island. Of course since this may turn out to be a direct threat to their acts of active corruption, the government they will resist it.

We have also called on the government to strengthen the police and give them their independence by formally appointing a commissioner and deputy. However, again for fear of a halt to their active corruption this will be resisted. We again renew this call.
We note the dissatisfaction of the of the chief justice recently in the handling of some local court matters, yet the authorities do not see it fit to come to the assistance of the police and the judiciary.

We believe that any failure of this Labour Party Government (against which there are so many alleged charges of corruption) to seek outside assistance on the matter of this famous Christmas fire and the attack on the life of Mr. Emanuel is simply a manifestation of the fear of the possible faces that may show up in the event of proper forensic investigation. We also think that any further delay will be considered as attempts to contaminate the case and evade justice.

We appeal to all Dominicans to join their voices against this apparent new level of intimidation in this country. This style of communism fear mongering governance should not be allowed in this lovely nation of ours.

Senator Ezekiel Bazil

    Very laughable and childish response Mr. Basil as the face of UWP,sure you all deliberated hard and long to decide on who should put their face foward to directly attack Dr.Dublin–a well respected,community -minded citizen ,independent in thoughts and expressions, dedicated professional in the area of Dentistry–who has graduated fron Cuba since 1987 and given service to his country..I am a Cuban graduate myself and have known Dr. dublin so these efforts by the UWP will not diminish his character. His statements are in order #leave it up to the police to seek ouside assistance if deemed necessary#—Just a reminder Mr. Bazil,,,the good Dr. has been self-employed in his private office since 1994-do the maths and kindly tell me ,you are EMPLOYED BY A COMPANY SO ????

    The leaders of the uwp must stop accusing DLP of crimes without evidence. They need to let the police do their job.This is irresponsible and reckless. How will expect to have a good relationship with the police if they become the govt.
    Mr. Bazil is asking the govt to do a number of things as the opposition, but at the same time he is accusing them of being corrupt and committing crimes. Mr Bazil you do not ask for cooperation on one hand and vilify them at the same time.
    Its time to be a good opposition. You have to raise issues you believe the govt is lapsing but you also need to present a plan to Dcans. Remember Roosie/Pierro them, they secured hundreds of scholarships for Dcans in Cuba and other countries. They made links with foreign partners. They presented them to Dca. They are in power for the third term. What will uwp present to DA. How corrupt Skerrit is?

    Will Senator Bazil be asking for outside assistance in investigating the unsolved murders in his constituency. There are several of them over several years. The senator must be aware of them. Why the oversight? Senator are you serious or just political. The language you used sold you out. You politicians are a damn shame to this country.

    Thank you Mr Bazil because we cannot sit down and watch this beautiful country go down. Where is the government of Dominica? Do we have a government or are they just the government of those that support their nonsense? If they only want to serve those who support them, then why did I get my tax documents? Why not let only those who support them pay tax? Ijust cannot understand how a person like mr Emanuel who served Dominica well, went to bed on Christmas Eve only to get up at 3AM to see his house and car on fire, he and his wife almost got killed in the fire, and almost three weeks later we have yet to hear the government of Dominica or the belove PM condemn this evil act? Is this really Dominica? Instead, you are hearing government puppets and those who benefit from the sale of Dominica, such as Mr. Peters and others talking their nonesense from left, right, and center as they try to shut down the opposition. I applaud you Mr Bazil and I join you and other lovers of this beautiful country; those who put value ahead of gain, in calling on Mr Skerrit to seek outside help to ensure that whoever did this to Mr. Emanuel, find a permanent address at Stockfarm, reguardless of the person’s political affiliation, religion, position, from the Prime Minister to the Opposition leader, whoever it is needs to face the laws of this country.

    I got one thing to say here… To the Unable Working Party and their supporters……

    The things that you say and do, make it so obvious that you are not in the least bit capable of running the island. Spraggs, whatever his name is, Bazil and all the others have been Edisonized….. And so I am grateful that your supporters are in the minority, to confirm the assurance that the Unable Working Party will never be back in power. So long with all your negativity and accusations. Shame on you!!! Is like you spend more time casting stones, rather than putting up a plan for your country. You don’t even seem to care for the country.

    Did not ROP Armour resign as deputy premiere (DLP) after his preteen daughter discovered a grenade that had been thrown into his home?
    Was it not because he was about to become premiere?

    Is it statistically possible for two prime ministers in the prime of life to suddenly die?

    where have our police been trained recently?

    Are these not where police are used to control the public

    Mr. Basil, You are off tangent to even point an accusing finger at the ruling party for manipulating the police force. You should know about the jointing sacking of the police chief and deputy during the tiem when your party was on stage. they werereplaced by who?. they were replaced by people your party felt comfortable with. All parties have had similar accusatiosn levelled against them since Mamo. A wrong is a wrong regardless.

    Has the Fire people ask for assistance in investigating the fire. As early as Christmas mourn, a few hours after, your party began politicizing the issue. What do you all have to gain by painting averything in a particular colour? “Doing the impossible. Eyes falling on all people. i hear a lady say eh las papa bondieu ……….” – kitay workers la yo ye”,

      I wonder how it could a party of choice after a landslide victory of 18-3….. an even victorious winning that 2005 election. Can’t you see that all this negativy and division they bring into the country is making it worse for them? NExt election will be 21 flat!!!

      When you say Dominican people, you can’t possibly be thinking right. Cause the workers will always remain in the Minority. Just like they can never have a full team, or a plan for the country.

    First I would like to direct for a moment the attention of my fellow peace-loving Dominicans to what happened in Arizona where the congress woman was shot in her head at point-blank rage.

    Most people have attributed this to being a manifestation of hate-radio programs in the US such as Rush Limbaugh, and also heated and violent political rhetoric coming out of persons like Sarah Palin.

    Sometimes we see people trying to instigate violence and we ignore it, but you never know when some nutjob is going to start taking things literally. The UWP needs to stop spreading division and hate in Dominica, accept their election loss, regroup and start presenting themselves as a credible alternative to Labour.

    I read the statement and this Bazil dude basically just directly accused the DLP of the fire. That’s such an irresponsible accusation in the absence of evidence. What if someone decides that hey the DLP attempted murder, i’m justified in a revenge attack?

      This is absolutely nonesense. The opposition cannot be blamed for asking for help to deal with serious issues such as curruption, where the Hon. Prime Minister’s name is in serious questions by all honest Domininican. Had it not been for politics, you Anti -hate would be supporting this call because there is not one labourite who does not believe the PM is currupt. No, not one including those on his legal team and cabinet ministers.

      Thank you my friend. I was going to write something on that and i saw you did.

      Some people are definitely trying to instigate political violence in DA. Politics has taken on a new tone in Dominica ,any one old enough would remember that before The UWP came on the seen radio talk shows never sounded the way they do now. My hope is that this is a lessen to the hate mongers on the radio, my hope is that they realize there are indeed consequences to hate speech.

      Anti hate, this is pur rubbish and anwise to use the Arizona shooting as your reference point because this shooting definitely makes it more obviousto me that labourites try to play smart but even when they use examples to make their point, their examples are further embarrssing them.
      The difference between the Arizona shooting and the Christmas Day fire are as follow (1) Minuites after th Arizona shooting an arrest was made and the suspect is in custody. It’s over two wwks and we do not even have a suspect as yet…whaw! (2) Minutes after the Arizona shooting the opposition (republicans includin Paline) were on the TV condeminig the shooting. Over two weeka now, what have we heard from the GOVERNMENT? Whaw! You putting Labou to open shame man!

        Do you want a round of applause for pointing out the differences and ignoring the similarities?

        The fact is that American politicians are having second thoughts about the wisdom of treating political opponents like enemies in a war.

        Palin is back-tracking and her people are denying that the bulls eye on the map was a bulls eye and calling it a surveyor’s symbol (lol).

        No-one said the circumstances are exactly the same. The lesson from this is that there are consequences to preaching hate in the media. You can bet Palin is going to be more careful about the sort of things she says and the UWP should take note.

          For wisdom is the essence that motivates us to read between the lines and to hear the sentments of others, even when they say nothing, at all. Our product is understanding, which projects “the ultimate truth” and “knowledge” of Life.

          Anti-hate, I am not seeking applause; I just want you to understand that I am not one of those DLP supporter that cannot tell the difference between blue and red and as a result, I cannot be fooled by your nonesense. I was not the one that brought in the American politics to light. You should have known that the American politics is different from the crap we have in DA. As a matter of fact, the only reason Mr, Skerrit is still in government is because of our politics because definitely, had it been in the US where politicians are having second thoughts, Skerrit and a bunch of those thieves of the DLP would have been serving life in prison. I hope you heard of the sentencing of Mr, Dom Delay today and how he was sentenced to three years. Don’t try to use what happened in Arizona to promote stupidity in Dominica because they are totally different my friend. In America, people are free to oppose where as you guys do not want the opposition to open their mouth. I am convinced that this is the weakest opposition we have had in the history of Dominica and to hear you blame them for voicing out the concerns of the people is really and truly pathetic. Common man, how could a very promenent Dominican who has served Dominica well go to bed on the eve of Christmas and had to be awaken from sleep at 3:aM only to find out his car and house are on fire, and two weaks later,we have not heard “The Government OF ALL DOMINICANS” condemning this act, we have not heard of the police coming up with a suspect or a person of interest? Is this democracy and good Governance? I never entertained the thought of seeing Skerrit or the DLP administration as suspects, but now after two weeks of absolute silence, I start to think of some proverbs my Grandpa always use to use on us, such as, “Smoke never goes without fire” and “Whenever there is a shadow it is a sign that the real thing is close, so look out,” Anyway my friend, let’s keep it like that without being personal because, inspite of our politiking, we are all Dominicans and we all want the best for DA. Love U BRo, but come better next time because I was trained by Rosie Douglas, the real man.

    Gees! I can only use my little common sense here, to say that regardless of how much the police is investigating they cannot reveal information they do not have though. But why does everything have to illustrate that “intense political theme”? Labour party this, and that, and so on, and so forth.

    Mr.–what’s his name says “not even an arrest on suspicion”. Is it not difficult to arrest people without enough evidence? Is that not the reason my sister’s step son is now, and nobody knows who murdered him? There is a lot more cases like that in Dominica isn’t it. But that kind of situation is in countries all over the world, as well.

    If a policeman arrest me, assuming that I did something wrong, and I if I am innocent, I will sure him for wrongfull arrest. Of course this is my right in the country where I now live. But even if people do not have, or do not know of that right in Dominica, I would believe that the police took ethical oaths, that they have to observe throughout their duties of employment. They cannot go out there arresting people to just please another set of people, can they?

    It is not that the police should not do their work, but they are human beings, not gods. What can they do without concrete evidence? I did not read much of that pertaining to that house fire. Two bangs, of which the owner of the house only responded, when he heard the second one, and an empty plastic bottle, which smelled like—petrol?

    The FBI, CIA or what else? Scotland something?–I do not know–but none of those men would be able to solve the case of a fire with so little evidence, if they cannot decide how and what caused the fire to start. That is the first thing investigators have to decide on.

      Everyone in Dominica knows that it was not a coincidence that GON’s house was firebombed at the time it was. Apparently, the police don’t.

      GON’s partner, Skimi, was the Prime Minister’s lawyer and GON asked him to account for over 6M ECD that had gone missing. As such, even a monkey would work out that in the circumstances Skimi and Skerro are the leading suspects in the case. In particular, work out that no words of support /condolences were sent to GON (a leading Dominican and ex Chief Magistrate) with regard to the attempt on his life by the pair. Strange, isn’t it?

      Therefore, why was Skimi not arrested and questioned?? Why was Skerro not arrested and questioned?? Surely, even the most lax rules of policing suggest that would be basic procedure in such a case.

        Skerrit has nothing to gain and everything to lose from planning such a fire. You should put your thinking caps on and realize that the police know that the UWP had the most to gain from this incident.

        Do you actually believe it is “ethical” for the police to arrest the “Prime Minister of Dominica” on “suspicions” that he commited arson on Christmas Day? Come on people! We can do better than that! Who has determined that that fire was actually “arson”? If at all you know what arson is.

    Well truth be said we know that the police will not come up with nothing relating to Mr.Emanuel‘s sad case. The police leadership has shamed itself to nothing but political stooges, yes man and ladies. It is a sad day in Dominica’s law enforcement. Dominicans are begging for outside help with that case. Sherrit has brought all these guys. All they can do is to arrest’ Parro’ in Roseau and ‘malaway’ in Mahaut and Portsmouth.

    And while we are on this topic, let me tell Diaspora Dominicans who have been vocal against this government that you are on a list which has been given to the police by the Skerrit and his boys. You remember Dr. Donald Peter’s article last week where he said it was only 29 Diaspora folks who are against the government. Well apparently he did not pull that list out of a hat or thin air. I am not sure if he is the architect of that list.

    That list now exists and the patriotic Dominicans who made that list are being discussed by the police high command. Instead of fighting crime and murder this police HQ are a den of cowards in uniform working for Skerrit. Be careful folks, the next time you head to Da make sure you have a cell phone, cam corder and digital camera and ensure that people know where you are and where you are going. As the Skerrit’s case gets closer it will get more desperate with his operatives in the Police Force.
    A message to the police is that we will not be intimidated because Dominica belongs to all of us not only that PM who held a French passport. We abide by the laws and have utmost respect for the constiition and regard it sacred unlike this PM.
    That police department is a disgrace. Police officer from Salisbury (we will call him Officer P) when is your next all expense paid trip (by the Skerrit with tax payer’s $$$$) to spy on patriotic Dominicans? You have a fool of yourself. We can assure you that the Macoute, Mongoose squad or other less desirable thugs will have free reign in Dominica including you Officer P from Barwe and Inspectors D & I.

The UWP has already formed their politically slanted conclusion, why would they accept any other from an outside law enforcement. Remember the election, they called for outside observers, they got it, the observers said the election was fair, did they accept it ? No!!

    If they are so confident in what they claim, why don’t they go to the police and give them all the evidence they have. I am sure they would welcome the help; also why not a call for assistane in some of our unsolved murders ? Does it have to be linked to Skerit for you all to care? Hummm??!!

    Dr. Dublin is an independent individual who has taken his responsibilities seriously, to attack him and your attempt to draw him into this debate is regrettable. This is a very low blow by you and your stooges and one must wonder how low you and your party will stoop to get at Dr. Dublin. Booker T. Washington said, “To hold one in the gutter, you must remain (there) in the gutter with him” and that’s exactly where you belong.

    Mr. Dublin, in his capacity as Chairman of the Public Service Commission has nothing to do with crime in this country. This is just another attempt to sow discord in the Police Force. We know just too well how we were treated by you and your government, the victimization, the lack of training, the lack of equipment, the lack of vehicles, the late payment of salaries,the lack of proper housing to name a few, were the hallmark of your administration towards the police. To come now and play that you love us (the police) so much or that you have our interest at heart is share hypocrisy.

    You and your party are so inept that you don’t know that it’s the Police Service Commission who is responsible for the Police Force. Can you be any sillier? I guess not. You quote a section of the Constitution, yet you are unable to decipher the role of the Public Service viz-a-viz Police Service.

    We do not have to report to you and does not have to inform you of what progress if any we’re making. If you feel that help is needed, feel free to hire your private investigator and turn it to your chief Counsel at Q95. We have Inspector Claude Weekes as our spokesman and do not need your services.

    Do not attempt to draw us into your dirty game. The Police are united.

      so i take it to mean that u r saying the police won’t be involved in any investigation,,,,not give any updates and i quote

      “We do not have to report to you and does not have to inform you of what progress if any we’re making. If you feel that help is needed, feel free to hire your private investigator and turn it to your chief Counsel at Q95.”

      if u r part of the police force then that’s disastrous,,,real bad n low minded,,,,who do the police serve,,,i thought it was the people,,, re-read the section i quoted from ur statement,,,,this alone speaks volumes,,,,,sorry but it’s true,,,,read again with a humble n clear mind

        Mouth of the south.I wonder what kind of mouth you have a mouth from nowhere.The comments you make are senseless.The person said that that the police doesn’t have to report to Mr.Bazil and his cronies and he is right.If Mr.Bazil want’s someone to report to him he must hire his private arrogant Investigator to investigte the fire so that he can report back to Mr.Bazil that so easy to understand.Lennox already investigate the fire and he knows who were the culprits but will not report to Bazil because he knows who are the criminals that’s why he and his police chief on q95fm were reading document illegally which were given to lennox by error.I hope Tony Astaphan can get that news clipping from Marpin and bring it to the judge for investigations and punish that lawyer.That’s what you have to speak about mouth of no where.Not about police reporting to uwp cronies like Mr,Bazil and Dr.Doom private investigator.You mouth maybe in the anus of your body and you know what comes form there.Mouth from the anus that’s your new name.

      What is so wrong with Mr. Bazil calling on the Govt to seek outside help into the investigation of the burning of the home and car of Mr.GON Emanuel? The role of an opposition party is to oppose the government by criticizing government policies, suggesting alternatives and keeping the public informed about issues relating to government administration. Q95 Keeps us informed of all the CORRUPTION within the DLP. The concept thus permits the dissent necessary for a functioning democracy.

    Mr James using u now he afraid to talk himself because he knows he was never a police supporter.Mr Bazil if u so sure that the labour party using scare tatics bring out the evidence.The evidence more point to UWP because u all were the first to condem the labour party for trying to intimidate people when up to this day no evidence of bombing.Get your Investigator Lennox Linton to help us he is such a good investigator digging dirt on people let him help police investigate.Blessings from St.Joe uwp psycholigist can also help us they are forensic experts too.Thompson Fontaine And The Christian brothers can also investigate.I was part of all u party and I know what you all can do so pointing fingers at people when it will bacfire on all u i hope all u say we doing a good job.

    Mr Emanuel is not giving police information police know where to start.Even u get forensic without witnesses where are u going to start.I guess uwp cronies maybe shaking in thier pants if investigations start because they maybe questioned.I remember Angello as a police I would question him first.He forget he used to odd things in roseau and pass on it on criminals ask Sogofly and u will know.

      January 9, 2011

      I cannot believe you are a policeman in Dominica. Your writing is atrocious. Have you ever written a statement and testified in court? I hope you do a better job than this because if this is a representation of police writing and police work in DA, then we are in more trouble than we know. This may be one of the reasons why the crime rate is climbing and criminals are having their way. If you are indeed a police officer, I suggest you take some writing classes at the college before attempting to investigate a crime.

        There is no need to castigate the Police Officer, people write and say things in many different ways so as not to disclose their identity or blow their cover. The writing, spelling and grammar should not be used to evaluate the individual. He maybe the lead investigator, he maybe one of the several persons with a Master’s Degree or a Bachelor’s Degree or other similar qualification within the Police Force. We all hide behind this post to place our blog.

        Please do not kill the Postman, he is only delivering the mail and has nothing to do with the content of the letter. What is instructive is whether what he said is true, “Mr Emanuel is not giving police information police know where to start. Even u get forensic without witnesses where are u going to start”. I interpret this to mean you may have the best investigator in the world, but if the virtual complainant (person making the report) refuses to give pertinent information, then it’s difficult to start and make any head way. This guy maybe in a position to know much more than he is disclosing, but is giving us something to chew on.

        Are we then too quick to castigate this Police Office and the Police Force by extension? Can Mr. Emanuel shed some light on this revelation? Can the UWP agents deny or confirm this revelation? I rest my case, My Lordship.

          They are pointing fingers at the lawyer/former partner YET that very same individual HAS BEEN CO-OPERATING with the police. To my knowledge he has given a statement and was interrogated by the police.
          HOWEVER, the VICTIM/former magistrate/ lawyer whatever else he was HAS NOT BEEN CO-OPERATING! In fact he would not even allow his WIFE to speak to the POLICE….so tell me please what kind of sympathy i must give to him and why should the g/ment use MY TAX $ to bring FBI/SCOTLAND YARD?

          JAOS,

          I understand your comment but not necessarily in agreement. The person who said he/she was a police officer did not comment on DNO soliciting information that could possibly lead to a resolution of the case. Instead, he/she came here supporting a political agenda by linking himself to a political party and making more accusations. I don’t think DA needs more political bickering. In my humble opinion, that is problem and when it comes from the police, it erodes the credibility of the police force. I think the police should be publicly neutral.

          Coming on DNO and saying that you are a police officer and then saying that you write a certain way because you want to be undercover is laughable…that doesn’t make sense.

          I really don’t care about the political bickering. I am really concerned about the way the entire country and how every issue is politicized. I am also very concerned about how police officers are openly expressing support for one political party or another, while crime continues to rise. That was my primary reason for suggesting that the person got the state college and improve his/her writing skills. If I was a police officer, I would definitely consider it.

          Great facts and hope you will notice that no one has taken you up on your disclosue.

          Thanks for the information. Kindly copy and paste this comment as often as possible so that DNO readers at home and abroad will come to their own conclusion when they read DNO future articles written by UWP,

    U again pointing fingers at the Labour Party.If u are so sure is labour did it why don’t u come out with evidence.I believe that is the UWP responsible for the fire.I would Investigate allu first.Mr Emmanuel not corporating with the police not even a statement on record.So how would you know wether or not it was a conspiracy with all u criminal elements of the UWP.Why is that Lennox And angello wrere reading documents illegally on Puke 95fm.Reverse psychlogy will tell the people who have things to hide would cast asperation first before anyone says anything.U all never supported the police all u always saying bad things about the police.Talking about police state and other bad things.Whe UWP was in power the greedy when they wanted equal pensions so why now all u want to say all u supporting police.Policemen suffered most under UWP.No equiptment no man power to fight crime.Is it that you all want the police who once supported ur party to come back i don’t think so.Uwp never like anyone not even thier supporters.Tell Mr.James to do some soul searching and ask police for forgiveness for the way he and uwp treated when he was in power.

      You are so right about uwp.On one of the articles I asked leaders to show me whe democracy was under attact and is a tongue lashing i got.Everything the uwp does has finger pointing.and tongue lashing when u disagree with them.They trying to put the blame on labour for the fire,When it could be them who did it.Most of the youth have no respect for uwp for the kind of behaviour they have.The cronies are disrespectfull to others.Whe u have angello cursing people young and old in the name of uwp what expect the youth to do.They cannot debate with anyone they resort to disrespectful behaviour.They have never complimented MR skerrit for the goodwill back roads a thing they fail to do when they in power.If I was the leader I would shut up Blessings from St.Joe He is always critical about PM and he can’t give soulotions.Ron Green how do expext the youth to follow you when u and ur cronies can’t give alternatives to Skerrit.Many of us will be 18 years before elections and sure will not be voting for uwp.

        So now I just want to advise you to continue in your strength. Okay? At your age, you are at the level you should be in wisdom. Trust in God by faith, as He is the one who is feeding your wisdom, by which you flourish in understanding and knowledge of Love–your stature of Life.
