St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN); Legal and political pundits at home and abroad are weighing in on the allegations that Opposition Leader Dr. Denzil Douglas possesses a diplomatic passport issued by another country and the implications this could have regarding his standing in the parliament, and more generally, where his allegiance lies.
Senior Counsel Anthony Astaphan is of the view that if in fact Dr. Douglas holds a diplomatic passport of a foreign country, it does not disqualify him from holding a seat in the parliament, nor does it means he’s sworn an oath of allegiance to a foreign power.

However Attorney Dwyer Astaphan, a former government minister of both foreign affairs and national security, thinks Dr. Douglas may be facing some legal and political challenges if indeed he has the foreign diplomatic passport.

He challenges the opinion of Senior Counsel Astaphan that a diplomatic passport can be issued to a non-citizen of Dominica.

Dwyer Astaphan says if Dr. Douglas has acquired citizenship for another country, he knowingly breached the oath he took on Nomination Day.

Since Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris made the allegation that Dr. Douglas holds citizenship for another country and is the holder of a diplomatic passport for a foreign country, Dr. Douglas has denied having dual citizenship and threatened to sue the Prime Minister if he did not issue a retraction.

To date however, Dr. Douglas has refused to say if he does hold a foreign diplomatic passport. He said even if he does, it is of no legal or political consequence, since holding such a passport is not in contravention of any of the laws of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Dr. Douglas accused Prime Minister Harris of spreading fake news as a means of diverting attention from the contentious issue of the government reducing the cost of its Citizenship By Investment on the heels of Dominica’s hurricane destruction dilemma.

Over the past couple weeks the eZone team has reached out to our affected islands to see what we can do to help, and after speaking to our fellow people we have discovered that we need to help the children!
Many of the schools were damaged severely during the hurricanes and our goal is to help those kids get back into school to continue their education.
We need your help eZone family! We have created an amazon registry online with all of the items these kids are in need of. We are asking you to simply go onto our amazon registry, purchase an item and ship it to our eZone hurricane relief address. There will be no freight charges, no duties - nothing!  We will take care of everything. Once the items reach our Miami warehouse we will be distributing them throughout the affected islands during the month of October. 
Please donate whatever you can, no matter how big or small. Together we can recover from these horrible disasters, together we can get these kids back in school, together we are #CaribbeanStrong!

 

 

(AP) - Former UFC champ Ronda Rousey is turning to "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling for inspiration more than a week after getting humiliated in a comeback match against Amanda Nunes.

The fight at UFC 207 was halted just 48 seconds in after Rousey was pummeled by Nunes. Rousey didn't talk to reporters afterward.

On Monday, Rousey posted a quote from Rowling on Instagram , "And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."

Rousey's Dec. 30 matchup with Nunes was her first fight since losing the UFC women's bantamweight title to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in 2015.
