‘God is the only judge’ — Andrew Fahie pens farewell letter

“This [letter] calls for all to remain laser-focused on the areas that unite rather than those that divide and allow God through time to do what only he does best with time – which is to be the only true and fair judge while healing all wounds.” — Former Premier Andrew Fahie

Embattled former Premier Andrew Fahie has penned what could be described a reflective and motivational farewell letter to his former colleagues of the House of Assembly, urging them to keep fighting for the prosperity of the territory and focus on the areas that unite them as Virgin Islanders. 

The former Premier’s farewell letter had prophecies of independence, as he told his colleagues to create a BVI where young people can dream of being the next Speaker, Clerk, Attorney General, Director of Public Prosecution, elected official, minister of government, Premier, Governor, or Governor-General.

Fahie’s letter said the current times call for Virgin Islanders to be “laser-focused on the areas that unite rather than those that divide”.

God is the only true and fair judge

The former Premier, who is accused of knowingly travelling interstate to facilitate a business enterprise involving narcotics, also called his colleagues to, “allow God, through time, to do what only he does best with time — which is to be the only true and fair judge while healing all wounds.”

Fahie also used the letter as an opportunity to express gratitude for the time spent in politics. He placed great focus on the task that elected leaders have in helping to advance the BVI beyond the work of their foreparents.

There were many biblical references included in the letter, including a quote from St Luke chapter 1:37, “For with God nothing shall be impossible”. He also likened the BVI’s forefathers to Moses who led the children of Israel “en route to the promised land”.

The letter was addressed to the Speaker of the House of Assembly, and serves as Fahie’s official resignation from his elected post as First District Representative and retirement from representational politics, effective November 24, 2022.

Why resign now, several months later?

His resignation comes eight months after he was arrested at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport on drug and money laundering charges, which has since been upgraded to include racketeering charges.

It is unclear why it took Fahie this long to resign from his seat and why his resignation was submitted yesterday — just weeks ahead of his next court appearance in the United States. He is currently waiting to commence his trial which, up to publication time, was scheduled to take place in a Florida court on January 9, 2023.

His resignation as First District representative was a topic of national debate as many wondered why he still held the seat after being absent from the role for many months.

Some public figures and elected leaders said his removal had to be done according to law while others said it was at the discretion of the House of Assembly Speaker.

    How many stories this news site is going to run on this same story. We know you all always wanted to bury fahie but enough for now. We do not see this same appetite for the others when they are in question. What a bias news site. Anyway, I am not a fan of fahie but I believe in fairness and a person is innocent until proven guilty. Like Fahie or not you must admit that he did plenty good for the people of the Virgin Islands. The Speaker determined when he had to go and that was made clear from the start so why all this questioning of why he resigned now. Give the process a chance.

    There is only ONE true law, and it is the Eternal, Universal, Natural, Divine Law of Free Will. So the question is: did Fahie voluntarily, knowingly and intentionally do, or intend to do, another Divine being harm? If the answer is “no”, then he did no crime. We all make mistakes, and can learn from them under God/Source.
    I AM a living man under God, and I do not identify myself with any Legal Fiction and let a Satanic entity (a lawyer) defend me in court. I only let God/The Creator judge me.

  56. @east woman says:

    Maybe he did for you up east, but he did nothing for his district and the majority of the Territory. Look at the West End Ferry Terminal dabicle that he IGNORED three years after election. Just touting a plan that went NOWHERE. HE CRIPPLED WEST END. Look at the Garbage dump that spewed and CONTINUES to spew toxins in his/our District. But one thing I would agree with is that he did a lot for his close family members and a few of his die hard supporters…and don’t forget about himself. The few that are on here blogging in support of him, I can guarantee that they were connected to the Government’s nipples.

    His legacy will no doubt be his GREED AND LOVE for Money.
