    What a man sows it will come like a hurricane sooner or later. Dominica was never corrupt like that. No one is being held accountable. What are we teaching the future generation. We have been independent for years, but these past ten years, is like everyting is out of control. Lord, please show us what is happening in the darkness, and bring it to light. Dominica is on the way to self distruction, if everything in hush, hush. These people in position don’t realize that they have children. And when things starts happening to their family they saying is vodoo. You sew corruption you will get the just reward. Corruption is like cancer. If u don’t treat the bad cells, it will spread to the whole body and will eventually kill the human being. Accountability , responsibility, punishment forgiveness, then healing. This is what we need.

    :oops: :twisted: :mrgreen: :?: You all see,Cayman Island is still under the British,so these guys can’t escape.I bet if they were independent he would not have been arrested,as the the police commisioner would be his friend or from his village.This is one of the reasons i always think Dominica should not be independent,the white man does a better job when it comes to these issues in as much i don’t really favor them. :oops: :oops: :twisted: :mrgreen: :?:

    I hope Mr. Carbon (Chief) and Mr. Hobbs (Deputy) of the CDPF are taking notice. Law and order MUST be maintained at all cost. Let me take this opportunity and applaud the Command staff and brave officers of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Force for a job well done. To the Dominicans on the force back there I say keep up the good work and be mindful we may need your help to do the same in Dca some day.

    Assertive, NOT Agressive!

    The real architects of economic slavery through corruption and self serving interests.
    There is a time for everything – that our PM know for sure. The long arm of the law seem short of a length but is far reaching.For now we have popcorn pretenders who are suppose to be looking out for the interest of the people of Dominica. When the oil is hot they become soft and fluffy.

    Heard you said earlier after C is D. This can never be done because the Task Force is next to his office when it should not be so.
    Espeocially the policemen in d office don’t have integrity . So they can do their job.

    Doh hoNO the former premier of the Turks and Caicos islands was also arrested while on the run in Brazil. He too was ridding private jets together with our prince dimples.oh how birds of the same feather flock together.
    This is the beginning of a new era where the corrupt Caribbean politicians will face justice.
    I hope too that the facilitators like me peeping tom, my friend and Conrad passport lawyer, the ex priest, preachers lime bubbles will also be punished for obstruction of justice.

      I had to take a double take to see if it is really the cayman Island I was reading about because just a few months ago the previous premiere was arrested for similar activities.

      Now, why would you do this? Why would you use my handle to make your statement. I understand that mimickry is a compliment. However, if you are going to use my handle in a pathetic and desperate effort at discrediting me, at least, write a statement that persons can read and understand. Do some justice to the «Peeping Tom» handle. Please. Sigh!!

      In any case, Peeping Tom’s style is well-known. Still, don’t be so lazy, create your own handle. May i suggest one? How about: Tchenbé Sa’w?

    Dem polices in de caymans have no respect. That is where the Dominica police excel over them. in Dominica the police have plenty respect and will never try to disrespect their beloved pm like dat.

      The Cayman Islands is a colony of Britain, Please have some literacy classes, thats why he can be arrested. Dominica is an independent country where all things are corrupt with the leadership of the country, so anything goes

      I guess you are being sarcastic. I guess Dominicans should beg to a be a British colony so that our colonial masters can discipline us for bad behaviour by jailing our corrupt politicians.

    This is only happening because they are a British Overseas Territory. That would never have happened in one of the independent Cribbean countries, where the commissioner of police are under the thumb of the PM.

    We are not a lot different from the other failed African countries.

If we dont,then one is required immediately.I would like to see somebody arrested for the bin and fertilizer bobol.I would like to see someboby arrested for the forty six counts brought against the easy door at a lawyer’s office.I would like to see somebody arrested for the short payment of approximately $56,000 to the treasury even though it was returned.I would like to see someboby arrested for the fiasco at Petro Caribe. I would like to see someboby arrested for giving wrong information that a house cost $400,000 when infact it cost over $1.5 million.I would like to see someboby arrested for the disappearance of approximately $54 million belonging to a Chinese man.I would like to see somebody arrested for the misuse of US $400,000 given by a Chinese woman to an alledged red political party.
