There are several videos online, with evidence of Dominica passports being sold at swap meet corners in countries unknown to the average Dominican.  In one such video a street hustler operating outside an Azaban Supermarket in Iraq market can be seen and heard offering Dominica passports at flea market bargains.

It is hard to imagine that any Dominican seeing these videos and not being repulsed by the callous desecration of our sovereign identity. It also inconceivable that any government witnessing such desecration of it’s country’s passport would remain totally silent, not even promising it’s citizens a swift response. Surely,it is fair game to relate the devaluation of our passports to a Citizen By Investment program charged with 20 plus years of rampant racketeering, copious greed and corruption. Everybody See’s Everybody knows yet the Skerrit administration cabal will take no responsibility for our passports being in the hands of passport dealers in shady corners of the globe.

Now that the citizens of Dominica are being forced to do away with their machine-readable passports and to re-apply for an E-passport, there is speculation that the mandatary re-application process is nothing but a desperate effort to help clean up the passport mess. The truth is, there is no need to speculate when the charlatan Minister of National Security Rayburn Blackmore himself hinted that there were concerns about the integrity of our passports. In a statement made some time in Aug. 2020 regarding the imposition of the E passports he said, "The most important aspect in our border security improvement is our migration from the machine-readable passport to our e-passport or biometric passport, which is almost counterfeit-proof.”

In August of 2020 Blackmore also stated that the sudden rush to have the E Passport instituted was because “the initiative would help cultivate a watch list for persons of interest before they arrive in Dominica. It will also inform officials of passenger information, as well as cargo coming into the country. He went on to say thatthe e-passports will enable the garnering of incomers' fingerprints at the border and allow for the inspection of secondary information.”

One year later, Blackmore seem to have shifted the reasoning for the compulsory passport re-application process and it now appears that the government is concerned about travelling out of Dominica without the E-passport. Blackmore even went as far as to threaten that anyone with a legitimate machine-readable Dominican passport and wishing to travel out of Dominica after January 30th will not be allowed to travel without an E-Passport.

With charlatans, the lying, the hubris and useless bravado is never scant. In the continuous bid to gaslight the people of Dominica they claim that the compulsory E-passports requirement is trail blazing for the region and a sign of development in DominicaIs that not embarrassing when the very same administration in the year 2022 won’t provide simple voter identification for Dominicans.  

In March of 2021, Blackmore also stated we will be moving to new biometric passports in Dominica and Dominica will be the only country, except for the Bahamas to have those improved passports in the Caribbean, and that is development," But Blackmore would have known that the island of Grenada started transitioning to the new E Passport since July of 2018 and that the government of Grenada gave it’s citizens up until 2023 to have their E passports. No Grenadian citizen was forced or threatened into re-applying for the E-passport.  In a statement from the Grenada consulate office in Washington DC, 2018 it says - “The Consulate of Grenada, Washington, DC wishes to inform all Grenadian Nationals that the Government of Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique will be transitioning to the new ePassport effective 16th July 2018.  A Caribbean Community Grenada Passport issued under the Passports (Fees) Regulations, Chapter 226 prior to 16th July 2018 shall continue to be valid pursuant to the provisions of these Regulation” 

The Grenadian consulate further notedIn 2023, all passports issued by the Immigration and Passport Department in Grenada will be machine-readable ePassports – a biometric/digital passport, enhanced with an embedded electronic microprocessor, which is distinguished by a logo on the front cover.  This microprocessor will be used to obtain data that will authenticate the identity of the passport holder for security purposes and ease of travel."

It is no secret that the DLP government operatives have raped and pillaged the countries passports for personal gain. It is the passport money that continues to pay for election campaigns, election bribery and election rigging operations. It is the same passport money that built the wealth they have attained and can’t be substantiated by their legal salaries. The luxurious lifestyles, ownership of newly built hotels, mansions, and hefty offshore accounts all mysterious. Now that there is an urgent need to clean up the mess left by unscrupulous passport vendors the burden of cost is placed on the economically oppressed citizens in Dominica. 

If there is any doubt that the compulsory E Passport requirement is a desperate attempt to help restore our severely compromised passports, here is what we know to be factual. The US Department of Homeland Security together with other Western countries had been concerned about the growing passport selling business on dark markets. One case of interest involved an Uzbekistani with extremist links and leaving in Turkey. The gentleman is offering fake passports with official visas and travel stamps to people with links to Islamic State(ISIS). These ISIS extremists are then able to use the fake passports to leave Syria and travel on towards the UK, EU, Canada and the US.

One source with links within Department of Homeland Security noted that passports from varying nationalities are being sold in different formats-forged or even real. The physical passports are sold for as much as $US 15,000.00. Counterfeit physical passports are sold for as little as $1,500.00 and according to our source the gentleman seen peddling Dominica passports outside the Azaban supermarket in Iraq was actually from a stash of counterfeit Dominican passports distributed out of Turkey.

This government lies because it is a lame-duck administration of low men and women in high places . They lie their way from one scandal to another, but the truth is like a lion, you don’t have to defend it, let it loose and it will defend itself.”
