|The Rogues' Gallery of dodgy Dominican diplomatic passport holders|
When the former Minister of Petroleum of Nigeria, now charged with money laundering in her native country, was arrested in the United Kingdom, she tried, in vain, to use her diplomatic passport from Dominica, to escape arrest. it appears that the Dominican diplomatic passports, which have been purchased by a number of high-profile financial criminals, are not the "Get-out-of-Jail-Free Cards" that the users intended them to be. Apparently the word is now out, on non-Dominican nationals holding these dysfunctional Dominican diplomatic passports, that they are not to be honored as the real thing.
The Iranian oil sanctions evader, Alireza Monfared, successfully used his Dominican diplomatic passport, to evade arrest, last year, in Malaysia, but now these bogus documents have lost their legitimacy.
