(Dominica News Online) Senior Counsel Tony Astaphan has revealed that controversial blogger, Kenneth Rijock will be facing legal action in Dominica in relation to some of the things he has published on his blogs.
Rijock, a compliance officer specializing in Enhanced Due Diligence, and a Financial Crime Consultant, has written numerous blogs about Dominica and the country’s Citizenship By Investment (CBI) Program. He has also spoken on a local radio station.
In one of blogs, he claimed that Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, was being investigated by US authorities for his alleged role in the matter involving ex-Dominican diplomat, Ali Reza Ziba Halat Monfared.
His most recent blog alleged that Ambassador to Dominica of the Kingdom of Morocco, Mohamed Benjilany, visited Dominica recently, met repeatedly with Skerrit and allegedly acquired thousands of blank official Dominica passports.
Rijock’s blogs have caused great controversy in Dominica and Astaphan said that “enough is enough.”
Speaking on Kairi’s Heng Program on Friday morning, he said he has received instructions from cabinet and the Attorney General to take legal action against Rijock.
