An airline, Fly BVI, has sought to distance itself from the controversy involving its Operations Manager Jeffery Brown, who claimed that authorities in the British Virgin Islands are stealing generators and other supplies donated for recovery from the devastation caused by two major hurricanes.

Brown, in a recent post on social media, went as far as to accuse one parliamentarian of stealing generators that had been donated.

He stated that Fly BVI would discontinue transporting relief supplies if the alleged incidents of theft were not rectified.

In response, General Manager of Fly BVI Steve Pelletier, in a release to BVI News Online this morning, declared that Brown’s comments do not reflect the airline’s point of view.

“The views and accusations made by Mr Brown are his own only, and were made without corporate approval of any kind. These are not the views of the company – but Mr Brown’s alone,” Pelletier said.

Junior Minister of Trade Marlon Penn, who is NOT the politician being accused of stealing generators, said Government does not support any theft of emergency supplies, adding that any such action would not be tolerated and would be dealt with swiftly.
