Skerrit given Sept 20 deadline to show “where the money gone”

Linton addressing the UWP rally on Friday night

Leader of the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton has given Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit until Friday 20th September, 2019 to account for monies from Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme which he insists has not been properly accounted for.

Linton made the announcement while addressing UWP supporters and concerned Dominicans at a public meeting in Lagon, Roseau on Friday night. The meeting formed part of an ongoing campaign to get Prime Minister Skerrit to properly account for EC$1.2 Billion of revenue generated through the Citizenship by investment (CBI) Programme for the financial year 2018-2019, which was not included in the National Budget of 2019 -2020.

The Opposition Leader declared, “Tonight we say, Roosevelt Skerrit has until the 20th of September, to tell us where our money gone. This is a man who has been Finance Minister for 15 years; the same man who has sat on the Monetary Council of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union for 15 years, and you want to tell me that he can not give us a single one page report about our passport money that was picked up?”.

“He cannot tell us how much money that was in the account at the start of the year, how much money came in during the year, how much money was spent and how much remained at the end of the year?, Linton asked. “That is all we are asking for!”

However, the UWP leader did not say what the next course of action would be, should the Prime Minister refuse to properly account for EC$1.2 billion by Friday September 20th 2019.

He went on to say that there is “a need to know” about the unaccounted money, based on the number of passports sold and “no amount of cursing Lennox Linton, no amount of calling his name will prevent Dominicans from demanding accountability for their EC$1.2 Billion. Is not your (Skerrit) money.”

According to Linton, as a christian society we should not be afraid speak up nor should we encourage wrong doing and he insists that there must always be integrity. He went to say that Dominicans cannot afford to have certain undesirable people running the affairs of government, “because we will end up in these circumstances where they can not account for your own EC$1.2 Billion, where they giving their friends hundreds of millions of dollars, and they giving to you (Dominicans) peanuts and seeking to buy and enslave you with peanuts”.

Linton told the gathering that they should not “fear no more” as there will be deliverance from the current administration.

Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) leader Kent Vital and its General Secretary Johnson Boston, as well as the president of the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM), Loftus Durand, addressed the UWP meeting on Friday.

    In a Real country this wanna-b self proclaimed god would not have been given a September 20 deadline-to-show-where-the-money-gone and to account for the peoples monies; but rather he would have been sent into EXILE with the same empty pockets that he came into government with, trust me.

    It is more than amassing that Roosevelt took his own mouth, his very own mouth and misspoke saying he did not include $1.2 Billion in the budget, and when the opposition asked where is the peoples money, we see people agreeing that he does not have to be held accountable for that amount of money!

    Some of you people such as Elizabeth, Kid on Block Winston Warrington perhaps cannot count; they do not understand money, we are not talking peanut change here.

    The amount is One ( $1.2 Billion): for people like Elizabeth who cannot count let me spell it out in words. Lennox want to know what happen to: One billion, two hundred million dollars.

    Roosevelt can work from now to the day he die, his salary or even a business venture could not earn him a billion dollars!

    There is a business  in Dominica operating for more than a hundred years, which recently could not pay its employees.

    They were once the agent of our ship!

    PM, You said you would release a response on the 19th of September with regards to Linton’s magical 1.2b dollar fiasco. But….
    It seems like Linton wants to take credit and be little you by announcing he is giving you the 20th to do so. That means if you make your release on the 19th, Linton will say is he that force you to do so, then he and his supporters will rejoice and claim victory.
    PM, prove to this arrogant guy you are not his little boy. DO NOT RELEASE ANY STATEMENT.
    We the majority of Dominicans have your back. Pay no heed to Linton and his non-sense 1.2b dollars.
    Do not release any statement on the 19th and let’s see what this tyrant is up to. Prove to this power hungry NOVICE who run things. We in the MAJORITY in Dominica RUN THINGS! NOT Linton.

    A pen is mightier than a sword. The sword is the tongue and the pen is the paper you write on.ACCOUNTANT. when you have a large sum of money with no fixed project to assign to it,you place that money in an appropriate account,if you don’t your balance sheet will not balance.This money stays in the appropriate account until you find a project to pull it out.We can safely say,it is reserved for the Airport. under no circumstances can you take it out,for if you do your balance sheet will not balance. Jesus was crucified for telling the truth.

      The qualities of a successful leader are  displayed by their passion, dedication and determination to  strategically motivate action.

      When you’re surrounded by leaders who encourage their supporters  by  their  own examples of  positive energy, ability to think creatively and successful outcomes based upon their performance; it invokes the innovative leader in you.

      That is Lennox Linton!

      The upholder is worst than the thief, are you insinuating because Lennox attended an opening of something, he should help uphold thievery and corruption?

      IF I saw you murdered, rape or steal something, and I conceal your crime and not inform the police, that makes me as guilty as you, hence I would a greater criminal than you!

        Francisco, Then Lennox should file a lawsuit against government with all the facts he has at his disposal. But he wont. Because he doesn’t have any. So he chooses a gangster style political champagne hoping that he can rally some uneducated ill informed like himself which will not be successful. Lennox has destroyed his political career and he continue to make a fool of himself. His tactics on the CBI has already failed. He will not and will never be Prime Minister of Dominica
        The guy is a failure.

          September 11, 2019

          Remember, Roosevelt was the one who first spoke about the $1.2 Billion, so Lennox do not need any other proof, or or evidence to prosecutor Roosevelt.

          Roosevelt tongue has already hung himself; all a good protecting attorney would have to do is call Roosevelt to testify.

          And since in our laws we do not have a fifth, amendment, where he can take the fifth, if he refused to testify, the court would have no alternative than to find him guilty as charged! 

          Roosevelt is the evidence against himself!

    “Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) leader Kent Vital and its General Secretary Johnson Boston, as well as the president of the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM), Loftus Durand, addressed the UWP meeting on Friday.”
    Whoaa, I applaud fully and convincingly this effort and comradery. That effort to show allegiance and political support to Hon Linton and His UWP, the team of the Domininca Freedom Party, on behalf of the people of Dominica. Well done Supporters of the varies two political Parties, Leaders and members of UWP and DFP. We salute you. Hurry up, with our help, let us get rid f this failed inept, immature, waste of Time Prime (Odd) Minister. Skerrit. This man has failed us. We knew then that he was too young, to immature and all over the place to be first Education Minister and secondly and most importantly to be a Prime Minister.
    We need change in Dominica and we know that we will have a decent and professional team and strong government in Dominica soon. Dominicans wake Up…

    • September 10, 2019

      Good, the DFP and the UWP have now tied the knot. That was the plan all along. First, deputy leader Sam moved across now the leader, Vital and his general secretary Boston have joined him. Let us hope that this is their final resting place, a sad and humiliating end to the once powerful DFP. The DFP has nothing to offer the UWP. These two parties together spent 20 years in office 1980 to 2000 and when the were sent packing the economy was on the verge of collapse, direct foreign investment was almost non existent, levels of poverty were high. They could not even build the layou river hotel, the millions of dollars collected under the citizen program to build the hotel vanished and Dominica got no hotel. Yet these same parties are now together talking about missing monies when their is physical evidence of how the money is been spent.

      And yet when a report is given, you guys ignore it and say its propaganda. No what you mean is you want a report that fits your narrative. Check out the internationally recognised PwC report that’s readily available. If they could get the information to compile such a detailed report, tell me why is no one at UWP able to? Furthermore, why don’t Dominicans themselves, take time to understand how the CBI works rather than listen to what others say?

      Two things will happen if UWP gains power.
      1) CBI revenue dries up, which leaves certain projects unfinished or unable to start
      2) UWP quietly forgets all about the noise it made about the CBI and starts using the funds.

    “they giving their friends hundreds of millions of dollars, and they giving to you (Dominicans) peanuts and seeking to buy and enslave you with peanuts”. News article

    This passage above is so foolish, I cannot believe that it is from a man who is campaigning to become the Prime Minister of Dominica. It is just too bad that there are Dominicans who are buying this childish stuff.

    “they giving their friends hundreds of millions of dollars, and they giving to you (Dominicans) peanuts–Where is the substance of this statement?
    What is that kind of language coming from a wannabe Prime Minister, who must go out to the International World on our behalf?

    Does Linton have any paper document to prove what he is saying? What is peanut about a brand new house rent-free? But they are everywhere in Dominica right now.

    Lennox, you need to find another interest of employment; you are not qualified for the post which you are seeking.

      @Elizabeth, Linton is desparate. His evil deeds are closing up on him and his mental framework his deserted him. He is grasping at straws to prevent being cast aside next election. With one term in the House he is not entitled to a pension. And since he spent the bulk of his working years away from home any Social Security benefit will be a mare $300.oo per month or less. Then he has no education and no certification as a self style investigative reporter. What kind of resume can he present to get a paying job anywhere.
      His misbehavior is tarnishing him as someone with terrorist attributes.
      So what is he good for. He has gathered all these bad vibes because of his grudge against Skerrit. He is in denial, he cannot accept that Skerrit, who called him, Sir, is now entitled to be called Sir by him. So his whole vendetta’s role in life is to destroy Skerrit by any means necessary. He thinks, “I can’t stand mister, who does he think he is, will not call him Sir,” hate driven…

      It is really just too bad that there are Dominicans out there who are buying this childish stuff, has failed miserable as Prime (Odd) Minister. Too much Bobol that we need an audit to account for possible states forgery and thievery. An investigation must be done. We welcome Hon. Lennox Linton and his Highly professional UWP Team.

      His record already shows that he paid legal fees for libel and slander and he has been arrested for inciting violence…..Now Nassief and others may sue him for lying. Not a very good record if you are arrested for scamming.
      Remember how Jesse Jackson Jr went to jail for misusing campaign donations.
      Money transactions in the USA is regulated by USA laws. He can face both criminal and civil cases.

    Lennox has clearly run out of constructive plans and ideas to tell the dominican people how he will govern the country if given the opportunity as prime minister.

      Lennox and his uwp gang has no idea of what national development means. With their fifth grade un-education they think fake accusation and propaganda will give them an edge. But people want to see and touch concrete competence. They want to see examples of your ability to develop the country, but uwp has none. They did a good job of raising thousands for the Bahamas re Dorian, but did nothing for Dominica re Maria. Not even a stone they could remove from the way, not a leaf.
      As representatives of their constituencies people never saw or heard from them, but when they came out of hiding 2 months later it was accusation time again with the DLP as their target.
      They have nothing to offer but fake news, unfounded accusations, meetings, demonstrations, press conference and interviews. Talk , talk and lies and more lies at home and abroad. Like blue hot air blowing in the wind.

Skeritt is just wasting his time as no amount of explanation he gives will satisfy Lennox and his band of supporters. They will only be satisfied if Skerrit agrees that he took the money and gave it to his wife.

    Dominicans are being taken advantage of..and those that follow Skerrit into the bowels of Hell defending such unethical behaviour should realise that they themselves and their children are victims of the abuse.
    This lack of accountability and glaring capital flight from Dominica will mark the beginning of a generational disadvantage for years to come.
    This is an issue that transcends party preference. The question concerns all Dominicans, but particularly those who strive to make an honest living inspite of facing daily difficult odds..It’s time to stand up, because the suffering could have been ended if they really wanted it to end.
    I always rationalize the issue of need in Dominica, how comes after 20 years of a performing Government, the need just seems to expand instead of contracting..and to hear of all these moneys missing..smh!!

    With such strong evidence against the appropriate use of the people’s money and all the other issues indicating that Skerritt must not be trusted; If UWP does not win the next election, It will be time for introspection. The party will need to look at its leadership. I venture to say that if UWP cannot win the next general election as the labourites are claiming, then UWP will need fresh leadership.

    The Labour Party told Linton that he had to go via the house of assembly to get the information about the missing money, then Skerritt, under pressure, announced that he will present a report on the missing money by the 19th after Skerritt employed Pricewaterhouse to prepare a useless report. With all these shenanigans, Lennox is right to give Skerritt a time deadline to give us another report. The budget address is another report that did not reveal where the money went. Since Skerritt has been loose with the figures and the money is not well accounted for, nor has been properly accounted for in 15 years he must be given a deadline to tell us factual and truthfully where the money went. The country is not his private estate. I know some Laborites believe that it is.

      September 11, 2019

      Isn’t the problem being that when you ask for factual and honest accounting of figures, that’s not really what you’re after.
      It seems to me that you Cannot call the PwC report useless, accuse the PM of dishonesty and at the same time ask for facts and honesty. You will never accept any facts or honestly from the PM or anyone else for that matter as you simply will not recognise it nor accept it. And yet all this is based on Linton poor understanding on how the CBI actually works and he’s using people’s own poor understanding to burn the whole thing down to the ground. Because in effect that’s what will happen. Those who are investing in these hotels and other projects, will decide their are better options elsewhere where the political climate is more open and stable.

    It comes at no surprise that this current maladministration has been found wanting. Good governance has been tossed to the curb. The current government is not transparent, not accountable, has no respect for Rule of Law, is ineffective and inefficient, is not consultative, infact, stifles participation. Skerrit has reduced the government of Dominica to ONE MAN, to a “I RUN THINGS” government. With such a government CORRUPTION becomes rampant, political tribalism reigns supreme and hopelessness and despair becomes intractable.

    Skerrit and his followers remind me of Jim Jones and his followers. Every damn thing Jim Jones told them they believed him even to the point of suicide. I have heard of the word suicide on talk shows but is only now I start thinking of mass suicide, like in the days of Jim Jones. Since many of you never heard of that cult leader before let me share this with you guys: “James Warren Jones aka Jim Jones (May 13, 1931 – November 18, 1978) was an American civil rights preacher, faith healer, and cult leader who conspired with his inner circle to direct a mass suicide and mass murder of his followers in his jungle commune at Jonestown, Guyana.”
    As popular as that cult leader was, he only lived 47 years and caused many to commit suicide with him. My question today is, how old is PM Skerrit? Add one plus one for the answer. Let him that have ears to hear comprehend.

    • September 9, 2019

      @Jim Jones, how foolish of you to compare your other Jim Jones with PM Skerrit. I know about Jim Jones just like you do, and I am telling you that there is no comparison between him and PM Skerrit.

      PM Skerrit is not personally forcing or intimidating no one to follow him, his followers, including myself, made our own choice.

      That is because he shows us the qualities of a good Leader, especially being the Prime Minister of our country. The Prime Minister who would be like PM Skerrit has not shown his face at this moment and time.

      Stop talking about things that you all do not understand–it doesn’t make any difference how well you know Jim Jones; you have chosen the wrong man to match his evil mentallity.

    Lennox in the same breath, can you tell us how much monies that have been collected on our (Dominicans) behalf from the DIASPORA?
    How much in the account from the start, how much came in during your travels collecting on our (Dominican) behalf? how much have been spent and how much remaining? That we Dominicans are asking.
    We say, Lennox, You have up to 20th September 2019 to TELL US WHERE OUR MONEY GONE.
    We need to know about the unaccounted monies that have been collected on our (Dominica) name in the DIASPORA.

      You lazy kid on the block; whatever money Honourable Lennox Linton collects,has nothing to do with the public as it’s not the sale of passports neither is it taxes collected from the people on behalf of the State! You know too well who you should make accountable for monies collected on behalf of the State! :?:

      What about the collection on radio and pal pay to pay legal fees.
      Is Lennox approach the new procedure for asking the government for information ? “I demand that you deliver what I want in 14 days or else.” Is that the policy in practice of the uwp or is that all Lennox dictatorial command approach. Are we going to experience an other 14 days, D -Day
      gossip style street approach ?
      One option of stateman like behavior would be to follow the advice of the FS as Chair of the Public Accounts committee. Or use the Parliamentarian approach of having “a question in my name” on the House agender.
      He can even go further and ask for certified reports from the Accountant General and Director of Audit to be laid on the table.
      His practice of angry voice and Hitler like gesticulation is getting extremely infantile. These tendencies are like that of a fifth grader crying for stolen recess. Or someone who is mentally and educationally challenged
      A money hungry man.

    • September 9, 2019

      @KID ON THE BLOCK, this is a good observation. I wonder if Lennox realizes that one at all.

      He is adamantly demanding to know what has happened to this money, that money, and the other money, that the Government handles, while he, himself is receiving money on behalf of us Dominicans, and no one knows how much and where it is.

      He said: “no amount of calling his name will prevent Dominicans from demanding accountability for their EC$1.2 Billion. Is not your (Skerrit) money.” News article

      I wonder if that man knows who Dominicans really are; 1.2 billion EC$ is not Skerrit’s money; how is what he has been collecting on behalf of Dominicans, Linton’s money

Skerrit and his failed corrupt Labour government has failed you big time and there is no doubt to this. I have access to many information of complaints of how much your failed Odd Minster is inept, lack developmental focus and is just a man occupying states office but nothing of substance or questionable deeds that goes on daily. We need a mature, decent, visionary and hard working person to be Prime Minister.
      We welcome incoming Hon Lennox Linton and his highly professional UWP Team. There is nothing that Skerrit has to compare with Hon. Linton, who is extremely an excessively disciplined, focus, hard working and futuristic experienced Dominican, with strong leadership

    Sept 20th or what?? Is he going to attempt to burn down Roseau again? Well, it wont be as easy as the last time. The PM has already said it will be make available on the Sept 19 so i don’t see the need for the grandstanding. How do people follow this man? He will never be satisfied with the report because that’s his only campaign strategy which his own supports are beginning to doubts. He must keep the issue alive one way or the other.

    • The Bible told me so
      September 9, 2019

      @??, Linton knows nothing about burning down Roseau. Those who planned and orchestrated the burning of Roseau were given a responsibility by God to cleanup Roseau after Maria ok my friend? If you notice you will realize the burning down of Roseau took place around the same time Maria had us on lock down. Evil people always try to hurt good people but God who is the judge of all, and will always cause those EVIL doers to pay for their Evils. No wonder David said this to us in Psalms 37: 7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
      Let them give birth to and bring their WICKED devices to pass but the God I serve will EXPOSE them and they will be judged because God does not bless EVIL

    Dominica and Skerrit reminds men of the cult leader by the name of Jim Jones, who was deceptive enough to lead his followers to commit suicide and those fools still followed him. I hope that’s not where we are heading with this cult leader. I really see a lot of similarities between Jim Jones and the cult leader. Guyana was the. venue but Dominica next. “James Warren Jones (May 13, 1931 – November 18, 1978) was an American civil rights preacher, faith healer, and cult leader who conspired with his inner circle to direct a mass suicide and mass murder of his followers in his jungle commune at Jonestown, Guyana.

      If there is a real comparison to Jim Jones Lennox is your man. He would get first, second and third place.
      He led two educated lawyers to Guyana. Were they hoping to organize a Jones Town ? See how he got Dominicans to pay for his legal fees after following him on a match from Layou to Roseau. See how he had people putting them selves in harms way on D-Day, and several other demonstration challenging armed police and inviting them to shoot their fellowmen. See how he can lead the “our money people” to be angry and greedy for CBI money.
      Just like Jim Jones could gather people after they transferred all their wealth to him. Then convincing them to take their lives. Just like Linton want his followers to put their money and lives on the line at his command.
      Skerrit is accused of giving money by his opponents….Dr Sam Gabriel life was saved, giving, Red Clinic, giving. He is even accused of giving money to his candidates. Linton is the TAKER of 2 scholarships.

    He give Skerrit sept. 20. 2019 to answer if he does not what can he do I think he get all the answers already.

    • Joseph John
      September 9, 2019

      If he was a serious leader he would not behave like an ignorant street brawler and make demands. If he expected an answer he would respectfully and politely ask the PM with written communication. Obviously he does not want or expect answers to his angry voice laced with threats.
      Does he realize that there is a right way/procedure to act, to communicate ?
      How can anyone recognize him as a leader if he does not know the way. He does not know the right approach to anything ? Is he too old school smart to learn. Is he too arrogant and self centered to ask for advise or use information technology to find the right way to act ? In this postmodern era people keep informed by doing a search on the net…Goggle it,…Search it, if you do not want to be a laughing stock.

    Skerrit given Sept 20 deadline to show “where the money gone” Really Skerrit and associates. Really Skerrit. We need to include in this package the “hand out” “Red Clinic abuse of states funds”, where you deliberately appeared to have abandoned the welfare division who has been managing social needs of poor families receive benefits and paupers allowance. This behaviour has been a conflict of interest, undermining the Welfare Division who do assessment of families, homes, and individuals,, whereas Skerrit Red Clinic and with couriers who go ut handing out money on behalf , it appears of Skerrit. This is nasty behaviour and against all the Protocal of decency in government business where the alot of money is given out to hundreds f mothers and others are in the Entrance, the Foyer of the Financial Centre waiting to be called upstairs ITS clinic and receive cash in hand supposedly to vote for Skerrit.

    Ok, finally we are getting really serious about this important issue. In case it isn’t clear yet to Skerrit – this is NOT going away and the citizens of Dominica are not willing to put up with his delaying tactics in this matter anymore. It is Skerrits duty to report properly and accurately in matters of state finances. One personal word of advice to Skerrit, you are not going to get away with this. Come clean and account by 20. Sept. or alternatively resign your position as PM and Finance minister. May I remind you, you are not presiding over YOUR money here but rather the money of the state of Dominica.

    As usual demands! Only this time it is over a vicious political strategy in an attempt to sway supporters of the DLP. This “where de Money gone?” is a fabrication. Only UWP zealots will fall for this. Mr. Linton never moved a muscle to help this Nation after Maria, and believes in his delusional mind that he can win an election. Asking Government to give 2 million US to Bahamas when other Caribbean Islands have followed our astute PM and donated the same amount of US$100, 000. Mr. Linton has proven over and over that he is unfit to run this Land, and we will teach him the lesson that he rightly deserves on Election Day. This man’s combative style of leadership defies every understanding. Mr. Linton, we are safer with Labor! DLP, for the continued transformation of Dominica!

    On the 20th if there is no explanation and the showing of the books they should get in touch with the international police (INTERPOL) so they can send a team of investigators to investigate the minister of finance the PM and his cabal. It is time for an outside team of investigators to go to Dominica to conduct a through investigation going back 18 years since this man has been PM as to where all the Dominicans peoples money gone. The British government should get involved too since Dominica was once a British colony.
