Former Government Statistician for the past 33 years, and now US based Stephen Nicholas reveals statistical information about the transparency of the CBI program
Former Government Statistician for the past 33 years, and now US based Stephen Nicholas reveals statistical information about the transparency of the CBI program. Mr Nicholas explained the program from its inception with the Dominica Freedom party, all the way through the United Workers Party Administration, and now under the present DLP government.
Many persons are under the impression that the CBI Program is a new program that was introduced by the DLP government and some may even believe that the CBI funds belong to the Dominica Labour Party.
Nicholas explains in detail where files with information would be kept as well as the type of information that is supposed to be kept in those files, including the amounts paid by applicants, with heavy emphasis on background checks and due diligence.
Nicholas went on to speak on the level of accountably produced by previous governments implementing CBI for Land, under the “Alien Land Holding Act” (ALHA) and the monies that were required to be recorded.
He broke down the data to explain how monies would be recorded, and where they would be represented in allowing clear accountability for the sales of passports.

Justice Dr Irving Andre is suggesting even if the Public Accounts committee has Subpoena powers, this only has meaning if they can be enforced in the court in a timely manner.
He explained through a hypothetical situation, that although the constitution provides subpoena powers for that committee, the system will ultimately break down, if there cannot be a fair and timely hearing in the court, on issues concerning governance and integrity.
Andre believes the Dominican society deserves a professional court system to hear matters in a timely manner.
Justice, Dr. Irving Andre.

Dominica Women’s Under-17 Football team lost 8 goals to 1 to host country Cayman in their opening game in the qualifying phase of the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Footfall Championship last night
Last night at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in Grand Cayman Dominica Women’s Under-17 Football team was thrashed 8 goals to 1 when they took on host country Cayman in their opening game in the qualifying phase of the CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Football Championship. The Cayman ladies dominated each aspect of the game, tactically, technically, athletically and physically. In the first half striker Brittany Dennis gave Team Dominica some hope with her lone goal.
But if there is any consolation for the Dominica team in this crushing defeat is that the Cayman Islands U17 Women’s team suffers a worst defeat in 2010 in the same completion versus the United States. But maybe the bigger lesson is for the Dominica Football Association in setting year-round football academies not just for Women’s football but for all youth to enhance and sustain Dominica’s competitiveness in tournaments.

Dominican Pastor of the Coulibistrie Gospel Mission Church Gerard Benjamin is advocating for the effective revitalization of the Manufacturing and Agricultural Sectors in Dominica
Dominica Pastor of the Coulibistrie Gospel Mission Church Gerard Benjamin is demanding the effective revitalization of the Manufacturing and Agricultural Sectors in Dominica. For the past ten years Dominica’s Agriculture and Manufacturing Sector have been stagnant, generating minimal amounts of revenue for citizens.
Based on the rich history and financial statistics of sustainable initiatives implemented by previous administrations, Pastor Benjamin remembers the wealth which met the average farmer and citizens in the rural areas across Dominica, but now the average Dominican struggles daily to sell the smallest amount of produce.
