Diezani Reportedly Bought Dominican Republic's Passport For Immunity

Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit has exposed a corrupt trade in diplomatic appointments which has helped to keep some Caribbean politicians in power.

With a general election due in Dominica on December 6th, the programme, “Diplomats for Sale” reveals how the leaders of both main political parties in Dominica are said to be willing to accept secret campaign contributions from foreigners wanting the privileges of a diplomatic passport.

Undercover filming reveals how a former Dominican Prime Minister offered to broker a secret deal to make a businessman in Asia, an ambassador for Dominica.

The eighteen month investigation focuses mainly on Dominica and Grenada and reveals how both countries have appointed foreigners to be their ambassadors around the world.

The investigation also tracks the story of former Nigerian Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke. In 2015, just as she was being investigated for multi-million dollar fraud in Nigeria, Dominica’s Prime Minister personally handed her a Dominican diplomatic passport which potentially gave her immunity from arrest. Al Jazeera also asks whether that passport was linked to Prime Minister Skerrit’s family moving into a luxury New York apartment. That’s an allegation which both Diezani Allison-Madueke and Roosevelt Skerrit deny.

Al Jazeera also investigates how dozens of wealthy international businessmen have been made ambassadors by several Caribbean states to represent them in countries around the world and at the United Nations.

While there is no evidence of wrongdoing on their part or payment for their positions, many of their ambassadorships don’t conform to the UN’s own convention on who should be a diplomat. The 1961 Vienna Convention says ambassadors should normally be citizens of the country and not engaged in professional activity, beyond their full time diplomatic role in the countries they’re appointed to.



  1. hmmmmmmmmmmm

    Jesus should just come abeg

  2. Al-Jazeera is such a biased anti-west, anti-Semitic news agency that I do not take them serious anymore.

  3. It is the Commonwealth of Dominica, which is a different Caribbean island from Dominican Republic.
    Seen it written incorrectly on every Nigerian site. One is a tiny English speaking island and the other is a bigger Spanish speaking island.

    Al Jazeera is right though, watched the documentary on YouTube.

  4. If the diplomatic appointments do not conform to the 1961 Vienna Convention on who should be a diplomat then it can be argued that the so-called ambassadors are not genuine ambassadors within the international usage of the term and therefore they do not have diplomatic immunity and they can be arrested. No court of law will want to pronounce them to be diplomats.

  5. If it's true then it's loud. Our corrupt politicians will now start scrambling for their passport so they can freely relocate after duping the masses. I fear this woman o

  6. Sexy mama with the bulgy eyes

  7. I low key dont want this one to face prosecution, the north have stolen from us for years and no one has questioned them. I'm love that she's fighting them brain for brain, money for money.

  8. I watched the documentary. So many big people around the world are into this diplomatic passport racket.

  9. The stolen money should just be used by her to relocate to heaven....stupid
