DEVIANT POLICE HIERARCHY TARGETING AN ELECTORAL COMMISSIONERS & POLICE COMMISSIONER APPOINTED EVEN AFTER HE BROKE A MAN’S JAW.

                           



The Dominica Police force has become a cesspool of corruption and incompetence and that is so strictly because the Roosevelt Skerrit administration insist on maintaining a police force wholly in it’s control. It is in deed a police force formatted to suppress political opponents or dissent through brutality and high handed suppression tactics.

 In an effort to retain power in Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit who has sole discretion in the leadership of the Dominica Police force has not been shy about placing puppets in places where they don’t belong within the police institution. The Prime Minister is also fully aware that his puppets are not the brightest bulbs at the police headquarters however the puppets do understand that their appointments are transactional and their duty is not to state but to the dictates of the despotic prime minister.

With the appointment of puppet commissioners like Cyril Carrette to Daniel Carbon and now Lincoln Corbett, police deviance continues to permeate throughout the police force. Corruption and ineptitude have become the order of the day and the morale of the police is at its lowest.

In 2010 then Commissioner Cyril Carrette understood very well that in order to appease the prime minister, the firebombing of the GON Emmanuel’s residence in Goodwill should never be fully investigated and that Denny Shillingford who confessed that he committed the crime at the behest of the Prime Minister’s lawyer ,Steven Isidore, shall be allowed to play “Wishy Washy  “ with the esteemed criminal investigators within the police force. Denny Shillingford is yet to be charged for the crime or for making false statement. Daniel Carbon who replaced Cyril Carrette promised to follow through with the investigation but ten years later the investigation still sit in a locker at the prime minister's office.  

How can the honest hardworking men and women in the police force be motivated when the prime minister recently appointed Lincoln Corbette as acting police commissioner? Apart from not being academically qualified it is a well known fact that acting commissioner has a sordid reputation and has proven to be a danger to the public.  Corbette has been involved in multiple unjustified shootings and accusations of physical aggression and in any other law abiding jurisdiction he would have been dismissed and or even imprisoned for police brutality.  

While most Dominicans are aware of the famous shooting incident at the Convent Prep elementary school there are other violent incidences that the general public is unaware off.

About two years ago the now acting police commissioner was involved in an incident whereby a bullet from his weapon went through his neighbor’s property causing damage to the neighbor's property. We learn that Corbette had to pay the neighbor for the damages done. Our investigation also indicate that the weapon was discharged during an alleged domestic altercation. Needless to say that was also covered up. We learn that Lincoln Corbette had the backings of politicians and so police commissioner Carbon had no real authority to discipline Lincoln Corbette.

In another incident, Corbette allegedly shot a young man (bus driver) in the buttock while the young man was under arrest. According to our sources close to the police, the victim was accused of looting at Astaphan in the aftermath of the Hurricane Maria. Upon exiting the Astaphan compound empty handed the victim was arrested by the police and on the way to the police station it is alleged that Corbett deliberately shot the young man in his butt. We understand that upon learning of the shooting incident the then police commissioner Daniel Carbon was brought to tears. That too was covered up.

The general public is also unaware of the fact that the state has had to pay off a young man from Marigot who suffered a broken jaw at the hands and violent temperament of the same Lincoln Corbett. After the incident in Marigot, the matter was brought to the court and the then sitting magistrate Levi Peters threw out the bogus charges brought by Corbett against that young man. Magistrate Levi Peters also went on to chastised Corbette for the pain and damage he inflicted upon the young man. The young man went on to sue the State and Attorney General of Dominica. Ironically at the time of the lawsuit the same  Levi Peters who chastised Lincoln Corbette and dismissed his spurious charges had become the attorney general.  Some level of decency and ethics would have required Attorney General Levi Peter to advise the Prime Minister against the appointment of Lincoln Corbette as acting Police Commissioner but Levi Peter is just another Puppet taking orders from Anthony Astaphan. 

In our eagerness to understand the aggressive behavior associated with the acting Police Commissioner, we spoke to a number of people from the La Plaine- Delices area where he is from. What we found out is that Corbett’s dad had been a police officer and even before Corbett himself became a police officer he had access to guns , allegedly threatening a neighbor while brandishing an unlicensed gun. It is also alleged that he would use an unlicensed gun to shoot at the neighbors chickens.

Corbette is not the only high ranking police officer with a checkered reputation. We are also aware of another high ranking police officer who allegedly raped an underage young lady. The alleged incident occurred while the young lady who is related to his wife lived at his house. This abhorrent character should be in prison for rape but the political directorate who are aware of those  allegations are happy to have him punish the political opposition and anyone who dare speak against the ills of the current administration.

The Police Service is critical to a functional society and its criminal justice system. The role of the police is to maintain peace, security and the rule of law. The effectiveness of the police service is developed on the trust of the people and community that they serve, not on the direction of politicians.  To achieve and maintain the community trust the police force must be free of corruption and should uphold the highest standards of integrity and accountability.

Electoral Commissioners Targeted

The integrity of the police force is measured by how the police approach situations and encounters with the public. Also how they make decisions and treat the people they serve on a daily basis. We understand that at the highest level of the police force, plots have been developed to victimize and arrest outspoken citizen and electoral commissioner in the person of Hilary Shillingford. Our information indicate that assistant police commissioner Davidson Valerie, commanded task force officers to specifically target and arrest Hilary Shillingford should he be found selling his agricultural produce on the roadside in Roseau. Note that on any day the Haitian and other Dominicans are all over Roseau selling agricultural produce on the roadside yet Hilary Shillingford who is simply trying to survive in severely broken economy has become a personal target for vindictive puppets like Valerie and Corbette. It is also public knowledge that another opposition appointed electoral commissioner Wayne James has been marked by the likes of Davidson Valerie for victimization and harassment by the police.. 

The police must be seen as the paradigm of justice and fairness in all situations and at all levels, personal and institutional. At this juncture the public confidence in the police service is not reflective of the view and understanding that the police service should be free of corruption, misconduct and political machinations.

ANOTHER SET OF PEEPING VIDEOS DISCOVERED YET JUDGE BERNIE S BROOK THREATEN TO JAIL A SUSPECTED WHISTLE BLOWER -SHAMEFUL

 Had anyone from the opposition (Danny Lugay, Lennox Linton or Johnson Boston) been accused of voyeurism and the recorded spy videos were available to law enforcement as evidence, the accused opposition members would have long been prosecuted and holidaying up in Stockfarm. Based on past behaviors the dunce Puppet and now assistant acting Police Commissioner Valerie would have also leaked the police reports even before the investigation was completed and  Daryl “Bounce Check “Titre and Mal Twavaille Bottom Brain would be frolicking on Kairi FM.

In November of 2019 MiTC broke the story that a Peeping Tom lawyer and prominent member of the DLP cabal had been recording women while they were using his bathroom facility at his law office. The women on these particular videos were recorded when they came to his office for business purposes or worked at his office at some point. See the attached link 

www.masinthecemetery.com/2019/11/a-peeping-tom-lawyer-who-even-recorded.html?m=1

We also anticipated that the story would be tagged as a political hit job and so it was. While publicly trying to discredit our report, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and some of his acolytes were behind the scenes trying to conceal any evidence and muzzle anyone who could further corroborate our report. Besides being very confident about our sources we also quickly realize that people within the immediate DLP circle were quite rattled so much so that a few hours after we released the story, a then minister in the Skerrit cabinet sent out text messages expressing concerns and asking whether his wife’s privacy had been on those videos. We have those text messages on file.

We also offered to provide a copy of the videos to the then commissioner of police Daniel Carbon however we are aware that copies of the recorded videos are otherwise available to law enforcement and so we are now asking the police- what does politics have to do with this heinous crime of voyeurism by a Peeping Tom lawyer?

The Peeping Tom lawyer should have been immediately arrested and charged but Dominica has become such a rogue state that the police only see themselves responsible for protecting Dominica’s mafia; an operation involving Roosevelt Skerrit and his goons. The rights of the ordinary citizens and particularly the protection of women against sexual abuse are of no importance to law enforcement. What a disgrace

Much like in the case involving Baby Sarah, the police and DLP cabal were not concerned about the crime committed by the Peeping Tom lawyer , instead they wanted to know who leaked the  videos to MiTC. To help them do so it is alleged that the sitting judge and known Skerritt apologist Bernie Stevenson Brooks, was called to action. Bernie Stevenson Brooks allegedly ordered someone who she and the DLP cabal thought may have leaked the story into the judge’s chamber and threatened to jail that person for “interference.”  We also understand that Bernie Stevenson ordered the sealing of all the recorded voyeuristic videos and all documents relating to the Peeping Tom’s domestic matters that are now in litigation.

Take note that in our November 2019 reporting which the DLP cabal said was fake news, we did not identify the Peeping Tom yet Bernie Stevenson Brooks and her political directorates were accusing and threatening their suspected whistle blower. No concern was shown for the victims of the voyeurism some of which were cabinet colleagues, wives of cabinet members and more. It is even more staggering that Judge Bernie Stevenson Brooks herself could have easily been one of the victims as we have notice that several of the victims on peeping Tom’s videos are female members of the legal profession.

We can also confirm that the Peeping Tom did not only set up spy cameras in his office bathroom, the despicable character also had spy cameras setup in the bathroom at his private residence. In the interest of protecting victims on these second set of videos we will refrain from providing any more details on these added videos. Let your imagination do the assessment.

We have also been monitoring some money laundering activities involving the very same Peeping Tom and in our investigation we have uncovered a $250,000 payment that was allegedly paid to a woman (Jane Doe) who was identified as a victim of his spy videos. At this juncture we don’t believe that the $250,000 payment is related to Jane Doe’s privacy invasion however our investigation suggests that there may have been a consensual relationship between the Peeping Tom lawyer and Jane Doe. The Peeping Tom lawyer has been holding public office  and so the $250,000 payout is a matter for the impotent Integrity In Public Office Commission (IPO)  to investigate.

When we put all political biases aside we should realize that it is characters like this Peeping Tom lawyer, dirty politicians and other rogue lawyers  that are making critical decisions for our country and it is only because the justice system has become a cesspool of corruption that relentlessly protect these rogues and vagabonds.  Much more need to be done to now put the justice system on trial as corruption has diminished public trust in the justice system and compromised the capacity of the judiciary to insure human rights and protection. Voyeurism is a serious crime and ALL perpetrators of this crime should be punished.No one should be insulated by judges or politicians.

We have had enough of this crooked justice system in Dominica and it is time that Judge Bernie Stevenson Brooks be removed from the clutches of Dominica’s corrupt executive which is lead by Roosevelt Skerrit and his directors like Anthony “Mopyon” Astaphan,Anthony “Offshore Treasury” Haiden of Montreal Management and Alick Lawrence.

We are also getting more and more suspicious of the blatant delay in the election petition matters in the court system. Justice delayed is justice denied and it is important that Judge Glasgow help restore our faith in the justice system- Please end the delay tactics in the courts sir.

REMEMBERING SKERRIT’S MYSTERIOUS TRIP TO GHANA AS DOMINICA IS AGAIN MENTIONED IN A MAJOR CORRUPTION SCANDAL

 


Most of us should know by now that our beloved Dominica is once again being portrayed in international circuits as a rogue state. According to a headline news by GhanaWebform one of Ghana’s primary News agency “A murky $150 COVID-19 test contract was awarded to Frontier Healthcare Services Limited (FHSL) which was incorporated in Ghana on July 21, 2020 - just 40 days before President Akufo-Addo opened the air borders. “  In it’s reporting GhannaWeb is saying that documents from Ghana’s Registrar General show that FHSL is owned by another Ghanaian company called Healthcare Solutions Services Limited (HSSL) which was incorporated in Dominica on June 3, 2020.(In the middle of the COVID 19 Shut down) The official documents also indicate that HSSL is located on Hanover, Hodges Lane in Roseau Dominica. Is that the  handiwork of Prime Minister Skerrit’s attorney and consigliere Steven Isidore who has an office on Hanover Street?

The GhannaWeb is also reporting that the company HSSL is also owned by another company called The Peters Family Company Ltd which was also incorporated in Dominica. The Peters Family Company Ltd is suspected as the Ultimate Beneficial Owner of HSSL and FHSL in Ghana. The report further explains that the Ghana Registrar  Department has no records of the  Beneficial Owner of the string of companies except a few  foreign and local directors who are fronting for the actual owners. 

The ultimate ownership of the The Peters Family Company Ltd and its web of companies are unknown however investigators in Ghana are convinced that the Peters Family Company Ltd is an entity owned by the controversial Nigerian billionaire businessman Benedict Peters.

The name Benedict Peters comes with allegations of corruption , racketeering and money laundering. The Nigerian Billionaire has been accused of working with another dodgy Dominican Diplomat, Diezani Alison-Maudeke. In 2017 Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) placed him on a wanted list due to alleged crimes related to  Diezani Alison-Maudeke and her alleged multi-million dollar corruption scheme.

According to a 2016 EFCC investigation Diezani Alison-Madueke, the former petroleum minister; Bernard Otti; Aiteo Energy Ltd; Northern Belt Oil and Gas Company Ltd and others were involved in stealing and laundering over $300 million. According to the EFCC Benedict Peters was at the material time the chairman of both companies.

Apart from being linked to Diezani Alison-Maudeke, we knew at MiTC that Benedict Peters had been linked directly to Dominica and its Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit. As a matter of fact we always felt that PM Skerrit may have been introduced to Diezani Alison-Maudeke through Benedict Peters and not through Baroness “Sousay Sel” Scotland as speculated by the Dominican public. Somewhere around 2015-2016 we received some reports from a US investigator alleging that the Nigerian Billionaire Benedict Peters may have been in possession of a Dominica Diplomatic passport however we want to be clear that MiTC was unable to find any evidence to support the claim.

We do know for a fact that PM Skerrit cannot deny knowing Benedict Peters. His partner in nefarious activities, Hartley Henry can attest to knowing the Nigerian Billionaire.The Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Motley is also very familiar with Benedict Peters. In fact prior to the last general election in Barbados there was a huge controversy relating campaign financing after it was revealed that Benedict Peters and Mia Motley met at the Barbados Hilton Resort.   

The GhannaWeb has also reported that although Benedict Peters is no longer on the EFCC’s wanted list he has been living and operating in Ghana for a few years now and that prompted us to re-engage our journalist friends in Ghana.  

In 2018 we reported that PM Skerrit made a quick and mysterious trip to Ghana. Not even his wife Melissa nor his cabinet knew of that trip and the purpose of the visit to Accra Ghana. In our report we presented evidence of his itinerary and proof that he used two different diplomatic passports on that trip to Ghana. We showed that Skerrit travelled from New York to Heathrow and then Heathrow to Accra using a Russian Airline. With all of the incontrovertible evidence of Skerrit’s secret trip to Ghana we also noticed that Skerrit’s travel had been paid by someone in Ghana who took extreme care in masking their identity. Our sources in Ghana were unable to identify the individual.

Is it all Coincidence????

STUDENTS TUITION NOT PAID FOR OVER A YEAR -DID KELLY "THE GHOST" WILLIAMS GET $8000 ????

 

                                                             


Last week an entire dog and pony show was staged with Melissa Skerrit issuing 90 laptops to students in the Roseau Central constituency. The Roseau Central constituency is one of the many constituencies where Dominica Labor Party conducted massive voting fraud during the 2019 general election. While we are very happy for the 90 students who received those laptops it is fair that we ask where did those laptops come from and why only 90 laptops when hundreds of student around the island need laptops to cope with the current remote learning situation. Did these laptops come from the usual suspect- the CBI agent who uses our passport money to sponsored Melissa’s Vienna sausage school lunch program?

It is only because our people have been subjugated into poverty, mendicancy that even someone not so smart as Melissa can hoodwink people who are supposed to be way brighter than her. If the issuance of those laptops were about government commitment towards education then why it is that many  students on government scholarships in the United States have not been receiving their tuition. 

According to reliable sources it is more than a year now that students on government scholarship in the United States have not received any funding for tuition.  We are appealing to the government of Dominica to step up and do what is right for the hardworking students particularly those at Monroe College. We spoke with someone from the bursar’s office at Monroe College and were informed that the Dominican students are totally locked out of the system and are barred from registering for the fall semester. We also contacted the Ministry Of Education but no one seems to have an answer to the problem. In the meantime some parents have to get emergency loans to keep their student enrolled. 

One thing for sure when the very same students are need to help rig the elections the same corrupt administration sends them airline tickets and spending money just to come vote.

While the students are going through this dilemma, we can confirm that some Dominicans living in the United States with US citizenship are receiving full scholarships from the Dominica government. Our reliable sources have also informed us that these US citizens who are also receiving US financial aid are using the money from the Dominica government to pay for things like vacations and parties.     

With the government unable to pay students tuition for more than a year and bus drivers still looking into Skerrit’s eyes for that $15000 bailout, it is alleged that Kelly “The ghost Williams” received a sum of $8000 as government Kool Out or as some are calling it a “Shut Your Mouth” check.

We are not sure where the government got the money to give Kelly "The Ghost” Williams his "Shut Your Mouth” check. We know it did not come from Skerrit and Anthony Haiden’s offshore treasury so we are thinking that the money may have come from the US $28 million Caribbean Digital Transformation (CDT) funds provided by the World Bank.

On June 22 the World Bank Board of Executive Directors approved US$94 for regional Caribbean Digital Transformation for four Eastern Caribbean countries: Dominica (US$28 million), Grenada (US$8 million), Saint Lucia (US$20 million), Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (US$30 million), and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission (US$8 million) to build an inclusive digital economy. According to the World Bank the CDT is meant to increase access to digital services, technologies, and skills by governments, businesses, and individuals.

We must keep our eyes on the CDT funds and hold the government accountable. We also hope that the CDT funds are used to help the stranded students particularly those at Monroe College

IF IT IS “LEGIT” WHY HIDE IT –MELISSA EXPOSE OTHER HIDDEN PROPERTIES- AT ROSE STREET &GOODWILL

 


Grand Mama use to say if you have to lie and cover up your actions then probably you shouldn’t be doing it and when lying and stealing becomes ritual then the more you hide is the more you will expose. Skerrit’s ascension into the position of prime minister of Dominica began with acts of shadiness, betrayal and massive cover ups and his entire stint as Prime minister of Dominica has been plagued by  multiple scandals and  mass corruption. Matters involving his sudden and unsubstantiated opulence are buried in shallow graves and with every attempt to burry a new scandal old secrets are exposed and more questions pop up. 

With the ongoing scandal involving the Morn Daniel mansion it is quite obvious that Skerrit’s demand for $32000 per month rent plus another $32000 per month for house maintenance is just a means to detract from the true ownership of that palatial mansion in Morne Daniel. It makes no sense at all that the PM would want that much money to stay in his own house – at least that’s what Skerrit, Anthony Haiden and other collaborators would like us all to believe. 

A “Mele MΓ©lange” – a tangled web of Conflicting interest, Insider Trading and pungent stench of corruption.

According to public documents the Morne Daniel mansion is owned by Mercury Properties Limited and the only named director of Mercury Properties Limited Company is Anthony Haiden. Anthony Haiden is one of Dominica’s foreign CBI agents who together with Roosevelt Skerrit control what is referred to as Dominica’s offshore treasury. Anthony Haiden is also Skerrit’s contractor of choice for nobid capital projects that are funded by passports sold by Anthony Haiden himself. Mercury Properties Limited also paid Skerrit in the region of  $750,000 for 2 acres of land in the Valley area.😏😏😏😏 With Anthony Haiden being the only named director of Mercury Properties Limited, it is fair to say that the attempted cover-up and masking of the Morne Daniel mansion is rather a shabby job. It is either Skerrit and Haiden are total idiots , too brazen or they just don’t have many options available to hide their unscrupulous activities. It may also be that they simply believe that the people of Dominica are all dumb.  

The more they cover up is the more they expose.

In 2018 we received copies of a string of text messages between Skerrit and Melissa and in these text messages there is confirmation that Skerrit does have ownership interest in the Morne Daniel mansion. The attached photo shows part of the relevant conversation. The nebulous photo at the top right corner of the photo is what prompted Melissa to ask Skerrit some abbreviated questions -question we see as the smoking gun. 

Please note that  the text conversations on the left side of the photo are unrelated but  left for credibility purposes. FB for example can verify that 1:50 AM text conversation with Roosevelt Skerrit.        

Upon receiving the photo noted, Melissa seemed confused and at 6:10 PM she responded with the question -House for sale?  We suspect that the house Melissa was referring too may have been the mansion in Viellecase since at the time rumors were swirling that Skerrit’s mansion in Viellecase was up for sale. Even more, in a 2018 parliament session Skerrit said to the then Speaker of the house and self- declared “Veremin Alix Boyd Knight that his house in Viellecase is up for sale and that if she wants the house she can simply hand him a check. The offer made to the self-declared “Veremin” may have been done in jest but it was in deed a subconscious revelation-it was the Freudian slip of a con man whose mind and heart was already set on moving into  his Morne Daniel mansion which was being constructed by his Foreign CBI agent and partner Anthony Haiden.    

In less than a minute after her first response, Melissa followed up with a second question to Skerrit. She seem anxious and convinced that the answer to her first text is a NO so she followed up with the question  – Is that Rose Street?  Several other properties have been associated with the Skerrits but we have never heard of a property on Rose Street-Thanks to Melissa we now know that the Skerrits also have a property somewhere on Rose Street. We understand that Rose Street is somewhere up in the Morne Bruce area. Ma Boyde's  Kitchen may want to keep the back window open for fresh delivery on the Rose Street property.

At 6:11 PM Skerrit had not yet responded and so the materialistic junkie sent of another text message to her husband Skerrit. This time she is asking about another property in Goodwill. She asked  wrote “ – Goodwill?  The honorable Danny Lugay parliamentary representative for the Goodwill area must find that property in Goodwill and put it on the list of properties that will one day become part of Dominica's restitution estate.

Desperate and apparently feeling ignored Melissa was not done trying and at  6:18 PM Melissa asked Skerrit a forth question and that question  we now value at about $29 Million plus $64000 of monthly allowance to be paid by tax payers. Melissa texted  – “ And Morne Daniel?  Cant wait to hear the spinners spin this one. If Melissa was not referring to the Mansion in Morne Daniel what else was she referring too- the farm Land? Lets keep going ------       

Why would Melissa ask Skerrit whether he was selling off the Morne Daniel mansion which was at the time nearing completion? The answer is the con artists were caught red-handed and would have been uneasy. The  people of Dominica knew then that the Morne Daniel palace was being built by Anthony Haiden ,for and on behalf of Roosevelt Skerrit. It is also note worthy that the election was drawing near and the  second mansion would have become an added embarrassment. 

We anticipate that at some point in time this palatial mansion will be unloaded much like the 8 villas in Savanne Pailles and the ownership will disappear through a web of CBI agents with shell companies. We understand that Renneth “Bubbles Alexis who had been used as surrogate owner  for Skerrit’s  8 Villa property in Savanne Pailles had been uncomfortable with the idea that he was  totally sidelined during the selling of the property.

Another Shallow Grave uncovered

Sometime between 2015 -2016 Skerrit posted several photos featuring himself as a proud farmer working on his farmland in Morne Daniel.  It was more than a public relation stunt  – it was also the workings of the "Wanna Be Dictator" with the urge to flaunt another one of his real estate acquisition. Did the land really belong to Skerrit at the time ? I remain suspicious but documents filled in June of 2020 indicate that it wasn't. 

Check This Out- Public documents show that Melissa’s parents only legally transferred the same property (Skerrit's Farm)to Melissa in June of this year 2020. So what’s going on and why was there a desperate need to show that the property was transferred from the Porpones  to Melissa Skerrit when five years ago Skerrit was already showing of the same land as part of his illicit collection of real estate properties. The mysterious transfer of the property to Melissa in June of this year seem like another act to cover up some wrongdoings. 

The suspected motive - if legal documents show that the Morne Daniel land was willed to Melissa by Mama and Daddy Porpone then no one can question the Skerrits on the purchase of the land or even purport that Anthony Haiden purchased the land for and on behalf of Roosevelt and Melissa Skerrit. 

As it is often said, it is not the crime that gets you it is the cover up. In the rush to cover up the ownership of the farmland in Morne Daniel, the Skerrits committed another egregious crime. They undervalued the property by about $20 per square foot and shortchanged the treasury in the region of $74000. By law and order Skerrit and Melissa should be wearing blue at the Stockfarm prison.  

In today’s Dominica people supposedly of good moral standing are offended by those of us who point out what is now ritual abuse by Roosevelt Skerrit and his crime syndicate. They would prefer that we don’t talk about abuse and corruption, for if we don’t then  somewhere within their consciousness the ritual abuse is not happening. It is time we start naming and shaming those who are suppose to be the vanguards of morality in our Dominican society but for selfish reasons continue to support and defend  gang of criminals- 

Father Elvio Augustine,

Lay ministers Steve Ferrol and Eddie Lambert,

Pastor Ehdi George, 

Disgraced Pastor Bernard Joseph,

Pastor Earnest Pendenque of seventh day Adventist church,

Evangelist  Peter “Short Pants" Augustine

How do you men ask god for forgiveness every night yet every morning you wake up pretending that the blatant atrocities and crimes against a people don’t exist in Dominica.  

The Pastor from Zicack Portsmouth we hope you find your conscience in Maryland– we still remember that infamous meeting in the United States when you told Skerrit that he should be proud of the Villas in Savanne Pailles because it was god’s gift to him.

We also want to call out the likes of 

Raymond Lawrence

Ambassador Egbert Charles

Felix Gregoire

Gentlemen how long are you going to keep your heads buried in the sand. When you do, “you leave your backside exposed to those who seek to take advantage. “(Gary Hopkins) No pun intended 

The 2004 United Nations Convention Against Corruption Kofi Annan, former Secretary General referred  to  corruption as an “insidious plague that has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies,” he added that it diverts funds intended for development, undermines the ability of governments to provide basic services, feeds inequalities and injustice, and discourages foreign aid investment.”  This is exactly what Dominica has become under the corrupt control of the Roosevelt Skerrit crime syndicate. A country where corruption sustains crime and criminal acts continue to protect the corrupt.

THE PETULANT “LUNA TIK” SAYS- NO MORE FREE BOARDING FOR SIMEONE ALBERT , LA TERRE & BUNTY

In a public statement by Reginald "Luna Tik" Austrie it was revealed that recipients of the government apartments will now have to make financial contributions towards the continuance of the housing program. The problem is ,those who received the apartment for example Simeone Albert in the east and La Terre & Bounty at Cotton Hill  in the north were under the impression that the apartments would be theirs to keep and absolutely free of charge. The devious DLP politicians never told the apartment  recipients that they would be required to pay fees for maintenance and insurance of the apartments. In all fairness why would the apartment holders who are prevalently laborites  think that they would have to pay anything when  they have been groomed into believing that their entire livelihood must come right though the hands of the chosen one , Roosevelt  Skerrit.

Now that the apartments are no longer free what happens  to Simeone Albert ,La Terre  , Bunty or even some of the ministers’ concubines living in the apartments -will they be evicted?  With an economy totally dependent on the remnants of the plundered passport revenues the government will have no choice but to keep absorbing the maintenance and insurance cost. The petulant “Luna Tik” can huff and puff all he wants - the problem stems from  the poverty and mendicancy that the Dominica Labor Party themselves have created. 

Now that the CBI revenues are no longer available for largesse and the Covid 19 crisis has further decimated an economy that was already in a serious difficulty, it is unreasonable and even cruel that the government is asking people who have been unemployed for many years, to pay a monthly maintenance fee and insurance for the apartments. Government assisted housing program is universally recognized as essential and should be reassured by any administration as long as the program is properly and diligently executed. As it stands the government housing program should not have been used to grandstand or to portray the opposition as being opposed to government supported housing programs.

There was every reason to question the motives and the sustainability of the FREE housing program when the government knew that the program was unsustainable. Over  the last two years there were clear signs that the treasury had been struggling to keep pace with the government's irresponsible spending and  there is no doubt that the COVID 19 crisis just simply fast forwarded what seemed destined for the housing program operating without a reliable revolving fund. 

Following Austrie’s public statement confirming the government’s intension to apply monthly fees for the apartments, people began to ask the obvious question for which Austrie  became belligerent and a total lunatic.    

The Obvious Questions asked

If the apartment holders did not have the financial capability to pay monthly fees 5 or 6 months ago how can the government expect them to do so now that the economy is much more debilitated and unemployment is bursting at the seams?

How can the people not question the government’s motives when tax payers are being asked to pay Skerrit’s sham rent and maintenance cost of  $64000 per month for his Morne Daniel mansion?

How unconscionable is Skerrit and his administration when  the very same Simeone Albert, La terre or Bunty’s have to pay 15 percent Value Added Taxes (VAT) and a percentage of that VAT goes towards Skerrit’s sham rent in Morne Daniel?

The petulant “Luna Tik” gets on Q95 to spew his ignorance and vitriol 

Although the petulant Lun Tik said that someone alerted him of the discussion on Q95 it was quite obvious that he was listening to the program and was very upset by what was being said about their  disingenuous and  abusive policies. The talk show host at the time, Loftus Durand, gracefully allowed the petulant “Luna Tik” to explain why he was so offended by the people’s response to his statement. He began his response by berating the host and hurling insults at the listening audience. When he was done having his “Terrible Two” tantrum, true to form he “mepuizais” the apartment holders for not taking care of the apartments and the surroundings. He took the Q95 opportunity to let them know that they should be responsible for the insurance and maintenance of the properties. 

The problem though is that Simeone Albert much like his fellow radio host Daryl Titre is consistently broke and unable to pay his bills. Under the previous administrations Simeone Albert who is a very capable tradesman was earning a descent leaving and was able to build his own dwelling house. At the Cotton Hill apartments, we understand that La Terre, Bounty and many others do not have sustainable employment and they too will most likely be unable to commit to the monthly fees or even to do repairs when needed. So will the government have La Terre, Bunty or Simeone Albert evicted from the apartments? 

What happens to the unemployed ministers’ concubines and children?  These are legitimate questions that the "Luna Tik " should consider as the puppetted 3rd tier housing minister.  

Like the hotels, the apartments have been constructed using CBI revenues and we the people have been asking about the ownership of these CBI built structures. In 2019 Skerrit stated that the funds raised to construct the apartments came from the real estate option of the CBI scheme. He wanted us to believe then that the apartment buildings were  owned by those investors, particularly those who contributed towards Skerrit and Anthony Haiden’s special housing escrow account or what is locally known as Dominica’s Offshore Treasury. Skerrit’s statement was a boldface lie and a desultory response to account for the whereabouts of $1.2 Billion of passport moneys. If the apartment buildings were owned by investors then there is no way these investors would agree for Simeone Albert, Bunty and La Terre to live rent free at those apartments. 

Prior to the 2019 election ,Skerrit in his desperation also stated that the CBI funded Hotels such as the Kempinski Cabrits Resort also belong to the people of Dominica but then Sam Raphael said to Matt on Q95-  no no no the Jungle Bay Hotel belongs to him  and his CBI shareholders. Up to now no one knows who own the Kempinski Brand Cabrits Resort. Is it Mohammed Asaria and his CBI shareholders or the people of Dominica? Skerrit gave Mohammed Asaria and his Range Capital 800 passports plus Free State land at the Cabrits national Park for the construction of the hotel.   

On the eve of the election, Skerrit also bragged about the FREE apartments and promised the apartment holders that they would soon be receiving their certificates of ownership but following his fraudulent victory at the polls the apartment holders have been getting conflicting information or as we normally say 6 for 9.

Austrie on Q95 also attempted to clear up the fuzziness surrounding the legal ownership of the apartments and that went as well as expected – It was malarkey after malarkey with laughable mispronunciation – kirtessy for courtesy, konstitushan for constitution. He first claimed that the government will own the apartments but within the clutter of disjointed rants he quoted Clarence "Sleeping Beauty" Christian – “the Attorney General Levi Peters is working on a legal structure that will allow the apartment recipients to have full ownership of the government issued apartments.” I am

If you are familiar with Clarence Sleeping Beauty Christian, the man is as dishonest as Roosevelt Skerrit and like Parry Bellot he seeks relevance and favors with the corrupt administration by spinning lies and misinformation just to cover-up the chronic government corruption. If it is true though that Levi Peters is now working on a legal ownership arrangement for the apartment holders then it makes much sense that there is so much chaos and incompetence. It is alleged that Levi Peters couldn’t even get a job to litigate parking tickets in London and is allegedly yet to fulfill the qualifying requirements to practice law in Dominica and the region. A dunce ka ka rat???

The willy nilly issuance of “FREE apartments to party supporters without due process and transparency was just what everyone thought it was – an abuse of power and the exploitation of the destitute and vulnerable,  for political gain. After all the apartments did not suddenly arrive in an express package from Amazon – the attorney general had all the time in the world to iron out the ownership structure and property maintenance scheme  before handing out keys to the apartments.

 It is because of the blatant corruption, incompetence and mismanagement that there are so many questions and it is either Reginald Austrie is way too arrogant or incredibly a lunatic to believe that the people can’t see through their web of deception. Had the housing program been properly instituted instead of being politicized and used as a conduit for money laundering there would be no maintenance and ownership issues at this point. The freedom Party and the UWP administration both had government supported housing programs and all the current Roosevelt Skerrit administration had to do was to build on what was already there.

MOPYON TONY SAYS $4500/MONTH IS CORRUPTION IN ST LUCIA BUT $64000 /MONTH IS JUSTICE IN DOMINICA

 

In 2008 leader of St Lucia's opposition Labor Party  Dr.Kenny Anthony accused St Lucia's then Prime Minister Stephenson King of using the state resources to meet the cost of rental of King’s private residence. Here is a breakdown of the disputed monthly allowance that was allegedly paid to PM King for leaving at his private residence.

 Domestic Assistance : EC $1,078.24

Gardener                           $ 1,237.01

Electricity(Average)         $ 1,292.92             

Water                              $ 14.70                        

Telephone                       $ 1,193.67

Total                             $4,816.54

 In response to Dr. Anthony’s accusations Prime Minister King and his government issued a statement confirming that the PM chose to reside at his private residence at a cost of $4500 per month but on condition that the state would not pay for his utility bills, domestic assistance and gardening.

We are presenting this information not to instigate any kind of meddling into  St Lucia’s political affairs but to show the contrast in the level of corruption –the PM of St Lucia was at the time claiming $4500 per month to reside at his private residence. Today PM Skerrit is claiming $64000 per month to reside at palace that he allegedly owns.

While it is not courteous to meddle in the political affairs of our sister islands guess which Dominican was cheerleading a public lynching of PM King on the matter involving the $4500 per month rental of his private residence?  Anthony Mopyon Astaphan- the vermin that sees nothing wrong with Roosevelt Skerrit in the midst of an economic upheaval is hijacking and receiving $64000 per month from the state coffers for rental of a palace that he allegedly owns.😲😲

The Wanna Be Dictator and His Affluenza

When Skerrit’s privately hired architect Supryah Singh was done with Skerrit’s first  mansion (now considered a banana shed) at the time Skerrit said that his mansion would cost $400, 000. Take a look at this video showing a field trip by the Saint Mary’s Primary School (SMP) to Skerit's Banana shed. The purpose of the field trip – A visit to the Prime Minister’s Residence. 

Before you continue please copy the link into your browser . The videos show a section of what the prime minister now seem to think is a Banana Shed.

A guilty conscience never feels secure. 

In a recent public statement Prime Minister Skerrit claimed that he deserve more than a Banana shed type residential accommodation. So it is only fair to assume that in Skerrit’s psychopathy mind his multimillion dollar mansion in Viellecase is now well beneath his residential aspirations.

We have heard all kinds of excuses and cover-ups for  Skerrit’s delusions. Businessman Emile Depooter is seen on a video agreeing with Skerrit that he Skerrit is entitled to the $32000 per month residential allowance but Emile Depooter will have his time on the Wall of Shame.  

Recently Clarence “Sleeping Beauty” Christian tried to justify an added $15000/month insurance premium for Skerrit’s new Morn Daniel palace. The Sleeping Beauty claimed that in addition to the $32000/ month rent the added $15000/month  insurance is necessary to covers public liability at the PM’’s residence. Since Clarence Christian has all the answers he may want to tell us whether or not there is a public liability insurance on the PM’s residence in Viellecase where  all these kids from SMP can be seen hanging out on the edge of the grand pool , some at the time could not even swim.

Take Warning Take Warning- 

The term "Affluenza" is defined as “a social condition that arises from the desire to be more wealthy or successful. It can also be defined as the inability for an individual to understand the consequences of their actions because of their social status and/or financial privilege.”

To the boot lickers and crumb seekers who have enabled Roosevelt Skerrit for so long it is said that “someone exhibiting this behavior (Affluenza) may also lack deep emotional connections but have a superficial charm about them. They tend to be very aggressive, and get very angry”. (Mansa) According to one member of the cabinet “the man is a walking time bomb”  The time bomb will detonate with severe consequences. It is Just a matter of time.

Particularly to the members of Roosevelt Skerrit cabinet:

He that is of the opinion that money will do everything may well be suspected of doing anything for money." Benjamin Franklyn. Those of you in the cabinet who are privately denouncing Skerrit’s affluenza but did not stand in defense of the country when it mattered , Desmond Tutu once said “If you are neutral or silent in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

No guilt is forgotten so long as the conscience still knows of it and I do hope that when the people finally decide that enough is enough that the hypocrites and parasites in the cabinet will be reminded of the role they have played in facilitating Roosevelt Skerrit’s evil.
