UWP to file criminal complaints against PM Skerrit

The statements were made at a DLP meeting in St. Joseph
The statements were made at a DLP meeting in St. Joseph

The executive of the United Workers Party is to file criminal complaints following statements made by Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, at a Dominica Labour Party (DLP) public meeting in St. Joseph on Tuesday night.

In a press release on Thursday, the UWP alleges that the statements, described as “frightening and highly inflammatory,” incited segments of Dominica’s population to threaten and harass members of the UWP and the filing of the complaints are being done “in the interest of peace of this country.”

According to the statement, the complaints will be filed with the “Chief of Police, the Inspectors in-charge of the Roseau and St. Joseph Police Stations alleging that Dominica’s Prime Minister, Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit has incited certain segments of the Dominican population to continuously intimidate, threaten and harass the United Workers Party’s Executive as well as every supporter of the Party.”

At the public meeting the Prime Minister had said that he views members of the UWP as ‘traitors.’

“I view them as traitors and I want you to do the same as well,” he told supporters. :When you see them on the streets, in the supermarket, at a funeral, on a plane or even in their cars, shout out to every single one of them – Traitor! What do you call them? Traitor! When you see Lennox Linton, what do you call him? Traitor! When you see Thomson Fontaine, what do you call him? Traitor! When you see Monelle Williams, what do you call her? Traitor!!”

According to the UWP, “these words tell their own story and relay their own messages of fear.”

“The Executive of the United Workers Party calls on every Dominican to totally disregard the irresponsible, illegal and frighteningly inciting directive to intimidate, threaten and harass Executive Members and supporters of the UWP issued by Dominica’s Prime Minister,” the statement said. “The UWP Executive also calls on Dominicans to refrain from participating in any conduct that would disturb the Peace in Dominica as a result of the Prime Minister’s directives.”

The statement ended, “The Leadership of the UWP takes this opportunity to extend every best wish to all Dominicans and visitors to our shores the enjoyment of a very great Carnival celebrated in Peace and free of unsavoury incidents.”

    What voo-doo is doing to Haiti voo-doo will do to Dominica. Look what’s gonna happen to Dominica between now and 2018. No stable government for a period of time – Much killings and unstableness. A shortage of basic necessities and chaos. Yes, the time is ripe for a shaking. Much people are devil worshipers and sorcerers on the Island. Hurricane David was a baby compared to the coming calamity which will hit this mountainous Island; and it cannot be avoided.

    The management of DNO must be complemented for their efforts in bringing honest news to Dominicans. Whenever Dominicans talk about breaking news and honest reporting, we hear about Q95 in terms of the radio and the Dominica Chronicle in terms of the paper press. In my opinion, DNO has shown it is not no party loyalist. For instance, the situation concerning the Skeritt traitor saga. We have not heard much from the churches, the police and other major institutions, however, to this day, DNO has not missed a beat. Take the Chronicle for example, on its front page, it is all about Skeritt, as though Skeritt is the victim. According to it, Skeritt said, “the opposition forces have initiated a particular nasty and series of attacks against Dominica and its Government.” He went on,” is blows they want, is blow they will get.” You noticed, nothing is written relating to Skeritt’s demand that his DLP supporters find Mr. Linton and members of the UWP and torment them.

    Do some believe they have a monopoly on words? Do we have a war of words going on there, and who can delivered the best punch line with the more steam?

    It seems to me only one person/party thinks they were given the right to give blows and should be the only ones to delivered words where it can sting others. Because not too long ago there was a calypso which the UWP liked very much. Do we remember? It is calypso time so let me jot your memory.

    It had words to the effect “De ‘fraid, de fraid the Leader of the Opposition”

    What’s happen’g now, we changing the words and some duh like it. “they fighting back with words and we duh like it” Only us, the opposition, (they) should be afraid of? They taking over our territory on the war of words and it is not fair. It stings. We duh like that!!

    Dominica an island of 71000 people, known as the nature isle of the Caribbean with 97% literacy. highest density of fresh water in the world; exuberant rainforest. underneath all this we the people of the commonwealth of Dominica are face with our greatest Challenge the politicians. Here is Roosevelt skerrit with one half of the population, there is Lennox Linton with another half of the population; division or polarized. POLITICS it’s an ancient philosophy to defeat imperialism and to give autonomy to the people. STOP THE FIHT, SKERRIT AND LINTON let us unite for the common good of all people and our country.

    I think it’s a shame for the Prime Minister or anyone to make such remarks. The man is promoting violence! and whether you believe it or not, ‘Confession brings Possession.’ Death and life lies in the power of the tongue. Words are powerful! If someone is involved in any violent act because of these statements made, then Roosevelt Skerritt has no one to blame but HIMSELF!!

    If this had come from a U WP member iof parliamemt you would have heard the uproar.
    They would gave been served with legal documents the very next day.
    The UWP needs to follow precidence and sue similarly to the labor government.
    Although I have little no confidence in our judicial system to be fair and honest.

    Is this the same Lennox Linton who, at his recent delegates meeting, advised the Salisbury people to continue what they started and that it should be sooner rather than later? Last year, the Salisbury people blocked the main road, set fires and stoned police officers who tried to unblock the road, as well as pedestrians who tried to cross. Now, this same Lennox is afraid and complaining to the same police because the PM advised his supporters to call him a traitor? He has been on social media calling the PM all sorts of names including Damn Blasted Liar (DBL) and his supporters have been doing the same. This guy is just insane!

    I guess Linton wants to see if he can win a fast case to pay his own court dues. Pinard – Byrne sue him so he’s taking it out on Skerrit. Oh Linton (African accent) ‘you must stop it now’.

    That was a wrong move made by the Prime Minister of our country .. Encouraging chaos like that
    Both leaders have portrayed downright childish behaviours from then to now.. Some might say it is politics and in politics a man must get corrupted or say things he may not mean… Let’s not forget the childish stunts Lenox himself had made before.. But the only way to see Dominica move forward is by MATURITY OF THE LEADERSHIP WE SELECT TO RUN OUR COUNTRY .. And that has to come from both sides of the government .. Be it Labour, be it Worker … Nothing beats a mature mind when involved in politics… These men are not only embarrassing themselves but the country .. Look beyond the political differences and realise that they both are just simply unfit to run a country if they keep up this behaviour. Take it from a youth… Simply sad to see elders act childish … What examples are you guys setting fro us?? :-?

    While many level-headed Labourites may not take the instructions of the Supreme Leader to provoke, harass or insult others seriously, there are a few misguided and hot-headed Labourites who actually will. The chances that a few trouble-makers might take the meeting at Layou as an opportunity to act on the Prime Minister’s orders is in fact quite possible. If, God forbid, there is a public meeting where the Leaders, Members and Supporters of the United Workers Party are gathered and a few Labourites decide to show up and disrupt the proceedings with taunts of “TRAITOR, TRAITOR TRAITOR” the situation may explode into chaos rather quickly! Even worse, if any violent confrontation EVER occurs between members of these opposing political parties it, without a shadow of a doubt, will spread throughout the Island. Every Dominican on Island knows that loyalists on both sides have been on edge for months if not years. We cannot afford a single spark to start that fire!!!

    Just recently, a well know UWP operative was on Q calling on the Dominican public to harass a certain member of the electoral commission for supposedly denying them electoral reform. I didn’t hear anyone of you saying that this individual was inciting violence and should be arrested? What, don’t you think the individual may have felt equally threatened? If something is wrong, it is wrong on Monday, it is wrong on Saturday, it is wrong on Wednesday …. REGARDLESS OF WHO DOES IT.
    Dominica politics is beyond gutter level (quite frankly that’s an insult to the gutter). Young people are not learning anything from these people and their supports (both side) are not any better. Sad, sad, sad

    If half of these treats were made by Mr. Linton, that very same night carbon w out have arrested him. This time it is lord Skerrit, so don’t even expect police to condemn the statement, let alone to take the appropriate action. If no arrest is made, then I will be fully convinced that Roosevelt Skerrit was right when he said that Dominica is a country with no law or constitution, and he can do whatever he wants to get what wants. My only question for him is, why not dismantle the police force since they are no longer needed to protect the rule of law? Why pay them a salary? Why not just have the likes of carbon aND others just to escort him? Oh how badly and rapidly Dominica has fallen! No wonder Skerrit secured a future for his family in the US, and will live irreparable Dominica for the sons and daughters of those fools that keep ap lauding him in his distriction of Dominica.

    What can I say… two people that never in their dreams ever imagine they would ever be in the position they are today. One becoming PM and the other opposition leader. Take the opportunity that has been given to the both of you and work for a better Dominica. Both of you understand the hardship of most of your people as I am sure you both have once been there before. Do not forget where you came from and most of all do not use your new found status to get rich out of your people and the system.

  26. The statement ended, “The Leadership of the UWP takes this opportunity to extend every best wish to all Dominicans and visitors to our shores the enjoyment of a very great Carnival celebrated in Peace and free of unsavoury incidents–News Article

    Is Linton aware of this statement above?

    And if he is, how can it be a sincere blessing or wish to the people of Dominica, when he claims to be afraid to go to the celebrations, even to the point of filing complaint of what he describes as HARASSMENT and TERRORIZEN against him? All of this is so childish! And this man wants to rule over Dominica and the majority of her people–well God forbid.

      February 5, 2016

      The Queen is not in the habit of responding to letters like that, she has to be seen to be impartial at all times. However, that does not mean that she does not take notice. On the contrary, she is very keen to learn what is going on, not only in Gt. Britain but also the Commonwealth of which she is head. She will take appropriate action, as she sees fit, behind the scenes, as Baroness Scotland is about to find out. She should never forget that the Queen is her boss in her new function and that she does not have a free hand.

    “:When you see them on the streets, in the supermarket, at a funeral, on a plane or even in their cars,”(Roosevelt Skerrit Prime Minister of Dominica).

    I keep saying that Skerrit is a …… person if there was any doubt this proves my theory. Any Dominican who would follow that man stupid advise would have to be a fool. In the first place harassment, and treats of violence to another is a misdemeanor, which ensures one no less than 180 days, or six months in jail. In Dominica Skerrit may prevent that by making a phone call to one of his puppets!

    Now assuming I am traveling internationally, and a Dominican is on the same flight, and
    said something unkind, or abusive to me on that flight; all I need to do is make an official report to an attendant on the flight; who would be compelled to report the incident to the pilot, who would be obligated to report the incident to law enforcement prior to landing; that person who threatened or harassed me would be arrested on…

    • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
      February 4, 2016

      That person who threatened or harassed me would be arrested on landing! Would Skerrit be there to make a phone call?

      Skerrit is influencing chaos, in the country, which is ludicrous. As I am writing this; Dominica just got a little free advertisement on National (nation wide) Television, via the Price is right, when a constant while spinning the wheal sent out greeting to all her friends in Dominica. I wonder if Skerrit realize when he starts the civil war in the country, even the foreigners, and students studying in the country will also get hurt?

      And what effect that will have on tourism?

      The man is out of his mind, and that’s what happens to people when they are self-centered, evil and vindictive. Right now he could care less the damage he hope to cause in the country, since he has nothing to loose financially. The nation in order not to play into Skerrit’s hands and commit crimes in his name need to come together; get out in the streets, demonstrate against that man,…

        This Telemaque person is a much greater coward than Linton

        He is hiding somewhere in his “black lagoon” calling for unrest in our Dominica–he has been doing that for quite a while now; and now he is talking hypocrisy, another great trait of his, as Prime Minister Skerrit has started some kind of war–making mountains out of molehills.

        This man has nothing against PM Skerrit –he is just a wicked and evil minded individual.

        It is a good thing that no one is paying attention to him; I even believe that Lennox is ashamed of knowing that this man is pretending to be standing with him –he cannot even stand with himself; all he can do is write garbage.

        I know that because he is writing pages and pages of his same rubbish here, on another forum with more than a hundred recipients–no one responds to him! For he writes nothing that will provoke any responses.

      • “as Prime Minister Skerrit has started some kind of war–making mountains out of molehills”

      Now we have a brazen call to provocation coming from Skerrit towards the UWP leadership – specific names called by Skerrit were Lennox Linton, Thompson Fontaine and Monelle Williams – and its supporters and you want them to play foolish and not take the matter to the police? It’s called politics – huh??. You are either mad or playing mad. So threatening provocation on people is politics now eh – is that they teach you in the dotish school of Labour?

      Is Skerrit alone that has the right to take matters to the police and/or court?

      Man/woman, get real!!! Phew.

      Linton is always on the warpath. He is also angry with the PM that he said he will campaign for the next election and defeat him.
      They have the proof of what he stated about the PM and his ministers.
      Dominicans will make a grave mistake if they ever elect him PM. Personally, I could not see this happen if they are smart and learn from Linton’s overall attitude.
      Since being elected, I have not heard anything good which generated from Linton.

        I will confess that I only know of politicians saying that they want to contest an election because of what they plan to do or accomplish to develop their country or constituency. It’s the first time I’ve heard a politician,much less a PM say he’s contesting the next election and his raison d’etre is to make sure Lennox Linton is defeated.Way Papa,how low can you go.Sorry for clueless Skerritt

    I agree with the move. I also want to see the complaint sent to the minister of national security. After all it’s the leader of his party who exhorted his followers to terrorize the opposition.I would also send it to the current chairman of the OECS and the Commonwealth Secretariat.

    It is not a crime to call someone traitor.

    traitor
    ˈtreɪtə/Submit
    noun
    a person who betrays someone or something, such as a friend, cause, or principle.

    It is not an offence to call someone traitor. It is a belief.

    I would not file no complaint with any Chief of Police. Do you really expect Carbon to issue a warrant of arrest for his boss. If the Carbon would be brave enough to even discuss the criminal complaint with Skeritt, he would be immediately terminated as the Chief of Police. My advice to Mr. Linton and the UWP is to demand an apology and withdrawal of the statement in writing by Monday 11th February or else the Salisbury type civil disobedience should take effect in the Constituencies of Marigot, Salisbury, Wesley, Roseau South, Central and North. Anything less then that will never get Skeritt’s attention.

      For a person making such a statement, its not a criminal matter, the police has nothing to do in this matter, what needs to be done is for these complainants who thinks that they were threatened , file a private matter at a solicitor’s office. where the defendant would be summonsed to appear at court. I don’t think a judge or magistrate could come up with a guilty verdict.

        BEB stop being bias!

        If you were a trained police officer as you claimed, you know for a fact the words Skerrit spoke are threatening; and intended for the purpose of inciting a riot. He told his people to go and cause harm to innocent people. Harassment is a crime; harassing some can lead to a felony!

        BEB, there is a law dating back to the Magna Carta in Common Law, if someone goes into a movie house, or any theater and during a show one screams “fire” and people began running out of there, people may get hurt, they may not. Nevertheless the person who screamed fire, would have committed a felony, and could face many years in jail.

        Were you really a police officer? Well then if Skerrit did nothing wrong, by telling people when they see people burying their dead harass them by calling then traitor, in their cars, on aircrafts, and in shops, that man is setting people up to get killed! When we talk about traitor, we are talking about one who commits treason against…

        When we talk about traitor, we are talking about one who commits treason against their country! I would like to be on a an aircraft traveling with Skerrit, here him say traitor under his breath, I would ensure he go to jail!

        Lugay, said some people in Dominica has to die before Dominica can begin to make some progress, he got arrested and pup on trial.

        Lennox said based on what he was told, when young women go to ministers of government to seek economic assistance the ministers preys on them. Neither Lennox, nor Lugay mentioned any name, however they tried to screw Lugay, they sued Lennox for a billion dollars eh!

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

        How come there is a law to punish Lugay, and there are no laws in Dominica which can be used to punish Skerrit who openly told his supporters to attack the members of the UWP, and their supports. Skerrit went out of his to identify the people he wants killed, that’s a vast difference!

    “The Executive of the United Workers Party calls on every Dominican to totally disregard the irresponsible, illegal and frighteningly inciting directive to intimidate, threaten and harass Executive Members and supporters of the UWP issued by Dominica’s Prime Minister,” the statement said. “The UWP Executive also calls on Dominicans to refrain from participating in any conduct that would disturb the Peace in Dominica as a result of the Prime Minister’s directives.”

    This statement by the UWP of which I am an ardent supporter, has mitigated the possible threat and as such nullify the PM’s words. I am trying in vain to find out who are the advisors of my party and no one will tell me. What dumb legal advice is that?

Since I know that I will not be able to get them together in the same room to listen to what I have to say, I will like to copy them both on a private email explaining to them the current level of the country, their contribution to this level, where the country could and should be, and how they can both contribute to that better country.

    Please share the email addresses for Mr. Linton and the Prime Minister. I will like to speak with both gentlemen together.

    Finally a step in the right direction.

    They were quick to send Sgt. Allick Matthew and the CID boys to arrest Danny Lugay even after an apology so I am expecting to see the same actions from the Commissioner Of Police. This is going to be a litmus test for the police in exercising equal rights and justice, without fear, favor, malice or ill will. Commissioner Carbon, I am watching you on this one.

    When Salisbury people demonstrated for what is due to them you all opened fire and later arrested them so now the Supreme Being, King of Kings and Lord of all Lords Hon. Skerro has broken the law I am giving you the benefit of the doubt that you will do what is right and arrest Skerro.

    If not, then presidence will have been set that the law is only for nonlabuorites and that will NOT be good for our country. I am watching and waiting with baited breath :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I’m not supporting any violence here but if I was in Dominica I would happily take aim at any laborite who attacks me in the name of Skeritt and give them either a nice black eye, a broken nose, or some missing teeth. Then for surgical repairs I would refer them to the red clinic.

    Like some of you have already correctly stated, it’s only here in Dominica a prime minister can talk like that and get away with it. If this instigation of violence had taken place in any other country our lord and savior would have been in a jail cell that is fitting of his backside. Skeritt thinks he’s above the law, untouchable, un-removable, arrogant, and filled with himself. The police must be scared of him; oh I forgot, they’re corrupted as well. His majesty maybe all have some of them on a secrete payroll. That guy must be feeling like he’s the most powerful thing in the country so he can do what he wants, say what he wants, and all his peasants should say is yes sir. Insults, maypwe, severe criticism, lies, promotion of phantom projects, and deception were the highlights of their extremely productive meeting in St. Joseph. Skeritt is playing right into Linton’s hands because if Linton’s efforts were not getting anywhere there would never have been a meeting held in St. Joseph
