Opposition Leader dismisses Gregor Nassief’s claims about portraying Dominica as a “rogue nation”, as contained in an open letter last week.
Nassief’s letter had accused Linton of portraying the island as a ‘rogue nation’ selling passports to criminals via mail order, following his appearance on a CBS 60 Minutes program on January 1.
Linton responded to Nassief’s accusation by dismissing his claim. He then accused Nassief of being afraid of ascribing that statement to CBS reporter Steve Kroft, during the CBS News 60 Minutes feature which aired on 1st January 2017.
It was in fact CBS News correspondent Steve Kroft who had suggested that the CBI program was somewhat similar to a “mail order passports” program.
In his response, Linton accuses Nassief of turning a blind eye to the evidence of the mismanagement of the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program. He called on Nassief to recognize that the country is run by a criminal enterprise, that has mercilessly abused public office, for private multi-million-dollar gain.
Linton went on to ask Nassief to refrain from crucifying him for speaking truth to power, and instead, he should send an Open Letter to Prime Minister Skerrit, and ask him to accept the invitation of CBS News 60 Minutes, to repair Dominica’s international image.
