MiTC Whistleblower Challenge

MiTC is proud to announce a new initiative aimed at rooting out systemic crime and corruption in our country. We're looking for a few good citizens.

We're issuing a challenge to our fellow Dominicans; tell us what you know about what is wrong, criminal and stinks of corruption in Dominica, and you could win a prize for your submission. The contest lasts for two weeks, beginning August 7th and ends on August 21st. Here's how it works;

  • If you're interested in this challenge, you must first write your story in email format. The subject of your story must be genuine and your story must be accompanied by verifiable document(s) or photograph(s) that corroborate the story.
  • We cannot stress enough how important it is that your story be based on facts and verifiable evidence.
  • You must email your story to
  • When we receive your email, we will send you a nondescript code that identifies you and your story. In our email to you, we will send you a link to a Dropbox file folder which you will use to upload the photos and/or documents that go along with your story.
  • We will then examine your report along with supporting documentation for validity.
  • All stories we receive will be judged by the editorial staff of this blog for relevance, potential effect on our country, extent of corruption or criminal behavior, injustice, among other factors. We will then score the stories and grade them by degree of severity and importance to us all.
  • A cash prize will be awarded to the top three winning stories. The prizes to be awarded are $100.00, $75.00 and $50.00 United States Dollars for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place positions respectively. Winners will be informed by email and on this blog. Your privacy is important to us so we will communicate with you by using your personal code only. At the end of the challenge, we will make arrangements with winners to facilitate the wiring of prizes.

Dominica is pregnant with issues so there should be no shortage of stories to write about, so be creative. Your stories can be diverse but they should be interesting.
  • Were you at the Christening at Morne Daniel this past weekend with photos to share? Let's see them.
  • Are you privy to information on government officials and their supporters milking the treasury? We want to hear from you.
  • Do you have evidence of the companies owned by government officials who are getting no-bid contracts illegally? Let us have the company names and photos of the equipment they use.
  • Have you come across emails, contracts, letters, documents, between corrupt and corruptible officials that we should know about? Let us have copies.
  • Do you have knowledge of 3rd-party individuals who facilitate corruption in and out of Dominica? Do you know who has real estate property under their names that rightfully belongs to a government official? Let us know about it.

If you're in possession of documents that you'd like to send us but unable to do so because you do not have a scanner, here's what you can do. Android users, first visit the Google Play Store. Download the app "Tiny Scanner". Apple users, visit the iTunes store. Download the app "CamScanner". Both apps are free and easy to use. When installed, simply take photographs of the documents, save as a pdf, and email to us.

We're hoping that this challenge will encourage you to be more forthcoming about the ills in our society. We are aware that persecution is the order of the day in Dominica if you do not support the ruling party. But we want to assure you that your privacy is and will remain secure. To further protect yourself, we would encourage you to delete all traces of your emails with us from your computer and telephone, so that they do not fall into the wrong hands. You should also uninstall any scanner app on your phone after you have submitted your story and evidence; you can always download the app in the future if you need to.

We look forward to hearing from all our readers and sincerely hope that you will shed the needed light on burning issues in Dominica that the public at large needs to be aware of.
