Francis sends demand letter to DLP’s Floyd Capitolin

Joshua Francis, Floyd Capitolen

Deputy leader of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) and Roseau South MP, Joshua Francis through his lawyers Dyer & Dyer, has sent a demand letter to Floyd Capitolin a public servant and member of the Roosevelt Skerrit-led governing Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

In the letter, Francis’ attorneys claim that “very serious libel and slander allegations” were made against their client by Capitolin on the evening of May 29, 2019 on Sessame Street in Newtown.

The two-page letter, dated May 31, 2019, which was served on Capitolin on May 31, 2019 by a court Bailiff, is demanding that Capitolin “immediately submit a draft of a clear and unqualified apology as well as a retraction for publication in an equally conspicuous manner as depicted and played out on social media and also national radio in the Commonwealth of Dominica.”

The letter continues, “Further, having regard to our client’s position as an attorney at law of long standing in the Commonwealth of Dominica, the OECS and the wider Caribbean, your defamatory statement are meant to injure, not only his profession as an attorney but his character as an elected member of Parliament and Deputy leader of the official Parliamentary opposition in the Commonwealth of Dominica.”

It goes on to state, “In view of the good standing, profession and reputation of our client in Dominica and the region, Mr. Francis is entitled to substantial compensation as well as a clear apology….we must ask you to submit your proposal as to the amount of compensation you wish to make to our client.”

The letter adds, “It is our client’s intention of donating the compensation amount to a charitable organization in Dominica. Should you fail to submit a satisfactory reply within the next 4 days upon receipt of this letter, our instructions are to issue a writ without further notice. In the meantime, you are to cease and desist all defamation of our client’s character and reputation.”

The demand letter was also copied to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

    Dr. Skerrit needs to distance himself from the likes of Floyd Capitolin and Kenny G. This clearly gives the wrong impression of our honourable PM. You can’t be keep on being associated with these people.

    What does the LAW SAY ABOUT PUBLIC OFFICERS OPENLY CAMPAIGNING AND SHOWING POLITICAL AFFILIATIONS?? It seems with these guys there is no standards. Everything is “well is so it is”. THIS MAN IS A PUBLIC SERVANT!!!. In addition, i have head that the top “boss of the blocks” in grandbay is his brother. I even heard that Dowlin was even put in charge of distributing rations during Maria times in the Roseau South area. Imagine that.

    • June 3, 2019

      If there is a law it has not been respected for a long while. As far back as I can remember there were public officers who openly campaigned for the party they support. I can mention names but it would not matter. So don’t put it on Skerrit. Just educate yourself.

    “Mr. Francis is entitled to substantial compensation as well as a clear apology….we must ask you to submit your proposal as to the amount of compensation you wish to make to our client.”

    But is the above not a decision that is made by the court? Why would the accused decide an amount that he should pay to the pontiff without a court hearing? Can someone explain?

    “It is our client’s intention of donating the compensation amount to a charitable organization in Dominica. Should you fail to submit a satisfactory reply within the next 4 days upon receipt of this letter”

    “Donating the compensation amount to a charitable organization? Reply in 4 days?

    it seems as if this thing is well planned by the pontiff, but none of it makes sense to me; where is the decision of the court of justice in all of this? Good Lord!

      you can tell the court what you want. the judge will decide if it is justified, too little or too much. you will be given a time to comply with the demands or court for you doc. No court decision is made yet. however these are the charges and the demands. If the demands are met, then there is no need for court proceedings. Elizabeth i find for a grown woman with access to the internet a lot of you comments themselves make no sense. At least watch a tv show about court proceedings to get some background.

      Capitolin is a public servant. As a public servant you hare prohibited from openly campaigning and showing favoritism towards any party. It is in the law. But guess what, people like Floyd have no choice but to sing for their supper because their jobs were given because of politics. Floyd does no work for the state. all he does is read news papers in the financial center. at one point he was in charge of dealing with the people at the red clinic. then they said he is a trade…

      Elizabeth this is their style. The demand style of blackmailers. Remember D-Day when they demand that the government depart in 14 days. This is just thr style of the “Skerrit must go movement”
      Four (4) days is the same time Letang is giving the Government to meet demands. 14, 4, 4. sounds like a voodoo chant.

It seems that if you want to defend dlp or speak in their favor you automatically have to dumb yourself down and learn to speak ignorance. Nowhere do they state plans, all you hear them talk about is lennow linton, uwp, joshua francis, uwp uwp, lennox linton. Rubbish about cold soup and all other rum shop maypwi.

      nowhere am i hearing about getting off depending on VAT and CBI. Nowhere about improving sports and sporting facilities. Nowhere about improving our capital city and improving production. Just stuck on the nonsense kix and laughter that adds nothing to anything except a joke about someone else. nothing of real substance.

    All that just for a candidate that nobody even knew existed, not even in her community. We the people of Roseau south have always voted for people who are well know in the community and we always give them a second term especially when we get good representation. Mr Francis have served us well, even better than Mr Ambrose. For the first time in twenty years a new newtown primary school, the roads in kingshill resurfaced, elmshal bath estate and silver lake apartments and you got them to improve the playing field in kingshill. Thanks for great representation.

    I do not know the specifics as to what Floyd Capitolin said about Joshua Francis. If Joshua Francis feels that his name and reputation was at stake regarding comments made by Floyd Capitolin he has a right to press libel and slander charges against Floyd Capitolin. I find it bizarre that the letter sent to Floyd Capitolin by Joshua’s Lawyers asking him to submit a proposal as to the amount of compensation he wishes to make to Joshua Francis, wow. The case has not been heard in Court why are Lawyers Dyer & Dyer intending to coerce Floyd Capitolin to admit guilt on an allegation of libel and slander, to me, that is a sinister form of extortion, the burden of proof is on the one who declares, innocent unless proven guilty.

    Admin DNO is it necessary to state in your reporting quote “Capitolin a public servant and member of the Roosevelt Skerrit-led governing Dominica Labour Party (DLP). ” It creates political
    polarization with the facts of the allegation overshadowed.

      Gary, You do not dispute Floyd Capitolen’s position, do you. More

      • Gary
        June 3, 2019

        If you read my comment and understood what I said why are telling me I do not dispute Floyd Capitolen’s position. Listen, I’m in no position to pass Judgement on Floyd Capitolen’s, if what he said is considered libel and slander, then that’s for a Judge to decide. What you and others are doing is condemning Floyd Capitolen’s saying he is guilty without knowing what constitutes libel and slander under the Law. If you think that simply saying cheap and vulgar talk constitutes libel and slander then you are surly ignorant regarding such matter. What that has to do with Skerrit’s campaign, so long.

        • Joseph John
          June 3, 2019

          So what did he say that was so libel and slander. Tell us. Those smart lawyers like to use the term “it is allege.” So let us hear the allegations. Maybe they are afraid of a counter suite.
          They have already done some racial profiling on him.

      Gary, the more you talk the more you display your colossal ignorance. Some cases are settled out of court especially when the accused party fully accepts that he/she is guilty of libel. Even an average primary school grade sixer knows this. The vacuum inside your head has come to light.

      • Gary
        June 3, 2019

        I will make my point and skip the nonsense, you said about me, it’s irrelevant. What you think about something is not always what it is, a settlement in a libel and slander allegation is not an admittance of guilt. Guilt is an official decision made in a court of law, after hearing evidence. If Capitolin agrees for a settlement, the matter was not adjudicated you cannot say he did or did not do what was alleged in the complaint, there are certain things in Law that constitutes libel and slander to which someone is to be found guilty of libel and slander, an agreement does not take into consideration the things that constitutes libel and slander under the law.

    • June 1, 2019

      I think this is a worthy comment of reasonable prudence, though I too know not what was said and considered slander (verbal accusation without proof or fact) to Mr. Francis.

      Moreover, notwitstanding the swift response, the demands are almost equivalent to a court penalty for guilt. In addition, the deadline to meet demand for compensation (4 days) is unreasonable.

      This, and other yet unproven motives, could led Mr. Capitolen to counter sue for malicious intent.

      • Pipo
        June 2, 2019

        Don’t be ridiculous man. No specific demand for damages was made, it was left open to Capitolen to make a suggestion. I am not a lawyer or a judge but as no writ has been served, nor a hearing heldI think this is a smart move by the lawyers for the claimant, I know that much.

The case has not been heard in Court why are Lawyers Dyer & Dyer intending to coerce Floyd Capitolin to admit guilt on an allegation of libel and slander, to me, that is a sinister form of extortion. This law at its best before going to court or to settle outside court. Did that not cross your mind Gary?
      in 2019, to be associated with failed Skerrit and his corrupt Labour Government is exceptionally dangerous and ludicrous.. Skerrit must go, he is failure. Go ask Capitole if you dont believe me and ask hi to repeat he says of Skerrit some years gone by. Y0u see there are some who will stoop for anything including association with weirdos in poticas, while decent ones look forward to comprehend and compare in the interest of the our Domininca. Skerrit and his bunch of losers are not competent and reputable to serve Dominica. After 19 years they have failed and reduced our Domininca to ground. UWP & Linton will fix DA

It’s not about this law being best before going to court or to settle outside court, it is the best procedure under the Law which Lawyers use in mitigating such civil matters before going to Court to establish The Law as it pertains to libel and slander. Now as to the rest of your comment regarding The Government and The PM it’s all you silly ranting, and it has nothing to do with this matter at hand.

    This is what the political operatives of the Skerrit-led DLP do best. They resort to lies, intimidation and character assignation. They cannot run on their severely emaciated record. Nineteen years of unbroken rule and nothing much to show. No wonder the tension in the country is palpable, the people are overwhelmed with anger and hatred, and the island is so fragmented. Dominica yearns for a leader that heals not opens wounds, brings harmony not division, makes things happen not flaunts bogus promises. Sue even the very shirt off his back. Skerrit, Tony, Ian and Floyd Capitolen are no role models. These are potty mouthed men who engage in polluted politics contaminating everything around them.

      This is politics. However, all politicians are LIARS lying is a tool of the trade of politics.

Look at the crap that UWP operatives are putting on Facebook and other social media, having a young woman make a recording trying to dirty the name of a minister. Your candidate for Roseau South is flawed he has a serious matter pending before the courts and his alleged disgraceful behavior in public is not fitting of a parliamentary representative, yet you support him. Jungle Bay will soon be opened, according to Sam, leader of the opposition told him he should not reopen his hotel while the DLP was still in office.

Go as Skerrit and his so called blind loyal ministers about this. As minister McIntyre if his brother in Pennsylvania was part of heling to purchase the Bin Bobol or Fertilizer Bobol? It was Hon. Lenox Linton who exposed this thievery to the…

    Am not a fan of Joshua but if you don’t have evidence to back what you’re saying be very careful what you say about people. I so wish there was an alternative political party running in DA ,Than those 2 running right now. Am not talking about freedom ….

      The politicians are products of the dysfunctional homes and the vulgar, pull- down communities. What do you expect? The UWP, truth be told, is displaying a high level of maturity, and is issue-oriented. After attending a DLP meeting, when you return home, you want to scrub your body thoroughly in the shower to sanitize it from the pollutants and contaminants from the odorous mouths of the presenters. Conversely, an UWP meeting is laden with ideas, facts, commitments, camaraderie and positivity. There are now two toads before you. One that leads to a brighter future, the other to a place of relentless corruption, poverty, misery, underdevelopment and constant persecution. Your future is on sure footings with UWP. UWP I SAY, UWP ALL THE WAY!!

        UWP is too corrupt, they lie and accuse others of lying. They are a double standard party and they lack maturity. Election is close at hand so you will paint your lying and incompetent party in the most favorable light. Why don’t you tell us about your party’s involvement with the Polisario Front an organization which the US state department has labeled as having ties with terrorist. Joshua Francis has avoided giving the people of RS the representation they deserved. He constantly missed parliament as his personal issues consumed his time. His own party kicked him out as deputy leader after…………………………………………. Am just wondering if he is of sound mind and which church is next on his list for a portion of his white flour, you know that same stuff he spread in the church at V/case.

      :?: Chica,you do not need an alternative political party if you are dissatisfied with the current rogue regime and prime mistake,just vote against them so they lose. If you’re also not satisfied with next government,vote them out as well,don’t get hooked up on any politician and political party.

    Josh Garson you too nice! Them man constantly wooding and daymoutaying you with no end in site and you not demanding millions from foul mouthed Capitolin and DLP? Never ask for a settlement proposal because they will offer $10.00 and say you greedy when you demand more. Ask for enough to finance the UWP campaign and an additional 1 Million for charity. You see, money is NOT a problem so go for it and revise the demand letter asap. In addition, make it a demand as part of the settlement that he resigns from his government job and he not campaign for the next 20 years. MAKE THEM PAY BIGGGGGGLY!

      The question is, what on earth a highly educated man like Capitole doing in the company of this failed, waste of time Skerrit, who has not moved our economy one inch to make a difference that our young people and families will have jobs & food on the table. Capitole, we all know you, so you better revisit that cherished position you hold for this failed immature Skerrit. What on earth got you into that weird circle. Capitole, do you recall your cry based what you said of Skerrit, when he did something you did not like?. Well, here goes, referring to that Skerrit: “That man lied to me, he lied to me, he lied….he really lied to me”. And now you sit there like this clown rooting your failed incompetent Skerrit. What really is there for you Ambassador? You want your reputation, get the hell away from Skerrit and focus on your job as that Civil Servant. Where you have arrived, there is no way Skerrit can elevate to that standard of professional job. Skerrit Go. We want Hon Linton Team…

      • May 31, 2019

        You could ask the same question of the educated people in your party like Dr. Sam, Joshua, Ronald Charles and others, why are they in a party lead by Lennox?

          Because they are patriots and because they are against corruption, empty promises, thievery and opaque autocratic government style. Surely, even somebody like you can appreciate that!?

          Anon, because the UWP leadership and Team, they are decent people with a high level of credibility and honesty in politics. If in office we will kick them out like we are about to kick Skerrit and failed , immature, incompetent DLP. Skerrit is a failure, not fit for the office, it is an immature boy just a like a little boy looking for his toys all over. Those round him, Skerrit, have not been helpful to guide this immature Skerrit only if they were looking for handouts rather than being open and to help Skerrit manage our limited financial resources well. He and they are engaged for 19 years in matters of the Bin Bobol, Fertilizer Bobol, many sent to poor people by couriers, abandoned our hard working Welfare Office and disrespected the office of the welfare Division with the Red Clinic. Skerrit must Go
          We need change now and we welcome Hon Lennox Linton and his ably professional UWP Team

        Anon, you are seemingly educated but very unenlightened. What Capitolen did was unhelpful and wrong. Instead of being courageous and upbraid him for his libelous comments, you are giving credence to his falsity. Ian, Skerrit, Tony, Capitolen and the full slate of DLP candidates are all foul mouthed degenerates who are relentlessly hyperbolic.. Linton and his erudite team, alternatively, are solution oriented, consultative, inclusive and give you the unvarnished truth. The choice is between day (UWP) and night (DLP). Choose LIGHT and resoundingly reject DARKNESS.

        • June 3, 2019

          Where are you living? These matters take a long time to work their way through the courts. You all talk as if the matter will be heard next week. Eugenia sued Edison and it took five years before the matter was settled. I know not what Capitiolen said, but the UWP and it’s supporters have already found him guilty, because he said bad words against their flour spreading SAINT, Joshua Francis, a very corrupt and lazy politician .

        • June 3, 2019

          UWP is chronically corrupt, their double standard is glaring. They are a lying and lazy bunch of people who call themselves Patriots, trying to fool people.

            Anon, you are perfectly right, the only thing , you have levied and directed your invective at the wrong party. DLP is most deserving of your tongue lashing. Skerrit is a diseased, pathological falsified. It is the laziness of the current Skerrit-led administration that has Dominica under mud and water.

        Agreed all they can do is show boat. They have no nothing to show. No ideology, no vision, no experience, no positive interventions and no tract record. But they have accusations galore, left right and center ; backwards and forward. Words words and more words. Plenty of sound and fury signifying nothing.

      Do you comprehend the foolishness you have written. I will ask you this. What is the law that requires Capitolin to pay Joshua. Do think a letter from a Lawyer asking someone to submit a proposal as to the amount of compensation they wish to make towards their client in an allegation of libel and slander enforceable by law.

        Your are so intellectually depthless. You continue to embarrass yourself ever so often with your vacuous comments and you don’t even know that you don’t know. The anemic economy is the biggest stumbling block to progress for the average Dominican. What are some practical solutions to this relentless problem?

        • June 3, 2019

          Ask Lennox and the UWP. According to Lennox he will do everything that Skerrit is now doing, but he will do it differently. What a vision!!!

        Bottom line is that they have no case, not even a suit case. Francis will be asking for pro bono on this legal bill. He may even receive a backlash in a counter suit.

        Now read carefully and comprehend. There is in law where two parties are able to resolve matters outside of the court. If this does not work then they go to a lawyer and then to court if not resolved.. Gary,, I hope this hS openED your intellectual horizon, which appears to be far. Welcome back And hoPe this is helpful.
