Tommy Lee Denied Entry into Dominica Republic & Arrested


Tommy Lee may be released from jail and allowed to fly but organizer of a concert featuring Jamaican artiste Tommy Lee Sparta, Cabral Douglas has confirmed that the artiste has been denied entry into the country (Dominica Republic).

Douglas, who confirmed to Dominica Vibes on Sunday evening that the artiste had been denied entry, did not wish to comment further as he was seeking clarification from the immigration authority the reason for the decision.

Douglas noted however that the artiste had not been allowed legal counsel although he provided one for him at the airport and that the authorities were seeking to deport the artiste.

Tommy Lee Sparta posted a photograph on his Facebook page; “I am a CARICOM citizen. What Dominica a deal wid? Mi lawyer ah deal wid dis right away! The people them request me and them have rights too”.

“So them don’t respect Jamaicans? What them a deal wid? Sparta a go protest right about now!,” he also posted.

The artiste and at least three members of his entourage are presently at the Marigot Police Station, DNO was reliably informed.

DNO’s source indicates they were arrested after they refused to return to the jet they had landed on.

It is not clear at this time whether this decision by the Immigration Department is related to written request by the Northern Pastors Fellowship.

According to Dominica Vibes a reliable source informed that the Fellowship wrote to the government weeks ago and requested that the artiste not be allowed to perform here.

They also held a march against Tommy Lee in Portsmouth on Sunday, February 9 in collaboration with churches and the Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches (DAEC).

The DAEC also issued a statement on February 7, 2014 calling on citizens to boycott the concert, claiming that his lyrics “promote violence, a phenomenon that we are currently grappling with in our nation”.

“The current pattern of crime and violence in Dominica is of significant concern and provides us with an enormous challenge that further inspiration in crime and violence is unwanted,” the statement added.

The concert, which was originally carded for last Sunday, February 16, 2014 was postponed after Sparta who had been in police custody, missed his flight.

Sparta has been in police custody since February 3 on suspected breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transaction) (Special Provisions) Act, 2013 in Jamaica, was charged and released on bail on Friday, February 14.
