Premier threatens to report governor’s ‘act of aggression’ to UN

By Kamal Haynes, BVI News

Premier Andrew Fahie has put Britain on notice that he will be escalating to the United Nations what he described as an “act of aggression” by Governor Augustus Jaspert towards his government.

The Premier gave that indication in a letter to the UK Minister responsible for Overseas Territories, Baroness Elizabeth Sugg, last Friday, September 25.

Fahie was referring to circumstances that led to Governor Jaspert overriding his government’s wishes and inviting British Royal Naval vessel HMS into the territory to assist the BVI in securing its borders.

Grossly inaccurate misrepresentation

The Premier said he was outraged that the governor had decided to ‘hijack’ the territory’s sea borders through what he described as a “grossly inaccurate and exaggerated misrepresentation” of the BVI’s COVID-19 border security threat as well as its ability to protect its own borders.

“Despite the position of the government of the Virgin Islands being clearly articulated to Governor Jaspert, he proceeded to present a paper at this morning’s National Security Council (NSC) meeting which exaggerated the needs of the BVI to paint a fabricated inaccurate and misleading picture of the state of affairs and capabilities of the territory to justify UK interventions, including military involvement, beyond the scope of what was requested by the territorial government,” the Premier wrote to Baroness Sugg.

He continued: “To describe the BVI’s situation as exasperated and our resources as stretched, as Governor Jaspert has done in his NSC paper, is an exaggeration and grossly misrepresents the state of affairs on the ground. To use this fabricated case to create justification for UK interventions is dishonest.”

‘Agressive Governor’

Fahie explained that the BVI only had ‘a few incidents of illegal entry and trafficking of humans and illicit items’ that have since been stymied by a local Joint Task Force in partnership with law enforcement authorities from the neighbouring US Virgin Islands.

According to the Premier, the only thing asked of the UK was for it to provide “technical expertise” with regard to maritime surveillance equipment the BVI was procuring to complement its current border protection strategy. 

Referring back the aforesaid National Security Council meeting that followed his request for technical expertise, Premier Fahie said: “When asked to amend his NSC paper to more accurately reflect the state of the territory’s affairs and needs, and to keep the UK involvement within the scope of what was requested, Governor Jaspert was adamant that he would not. The meeting ended with the NSC not agreeing to the structure of Governor’s paper following an extended session in which Governor Jaspert’s demeanour became quite aggressive.”

“Neither my government nor I, nor the people of the Virgin Islands, will be tolerating this act of aggression by your governor. We will not be bullied and we will not stay silent,” he added.

“I can assure you that the United Nations will be hearing about the UK Government’s sustained policy of political sabotage of the aspirations of the Virgin Islands people at the next C-24 (the UN’s Special Committee on Decolonization) meeting,” Fahie told Britain, who he accused of being complicit and indulgent of the governor’s actions.

In addition to reporting the matter to the intergovernmental body, Premier Fahie said that he will be sharing the BVI’s experience with the leaders of the other Overseas Territories and Dependencies as well as with the CARICOM neighbours.

Governor’s action could hurt UK-BVI relations

Premier Fahie further said Governor Jaspert’s action directly infringes on the partnership agreement between the UK and the BVI which is based on mutual respect as stated in the territory’s Constitution.

“You and your predecessor Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon have been made aware of his pattern of behaviour over the past 19 months and you have consistently reaffirmed your support for Governor Jaspert’s actions, your confidence in him and that of your Prime Minister and government. You have made it clear that he is carrying out your agenda and that of your Government,” the Premier expressed.

He continued “I must point out that such deliberate malicious actions, especially where it is designed to undermine the sitting government and reinforce Britain’s colonial status quo in the BVI, fall within the classical definition of political sabotage, legitimised and sanctioned by the UK government.”

The premier is hoping that his letter will result in Baroness Sugg reversing Governor Jaspert’s decision to bring the Royal Navy into the territory.

Every time he opens his mouth and statt spewing OUT GOD SPEECHES get me so upset because he l**s so much that he believes his l**s. The country been on lock downs and curfew after curfew with no justice, no one prosecuted from this so called smuggling ring, no arrest maybe a few but the small fries. I know phone records were recovered from one incident and nothing happened there so this tells clearly some fish smelling and it’s smelling bad. The world is so divided right now with all the race talk, it’s easy for the l**s to be over shadowed with what’s really going on in the BVI.
          I know there are good Customs officers but there are also very very crooked ones along with Police. These guys talk so openly on the street about who’s in there pockets and it’s not funny.
          This place is so corrupt it’s not funny, some persons look down at other knowingly the dirty money that funnels through here…..

Not hard to see who it was… He didn’t want the Brits to patrol because he didn’t want them to be caught. Well Foy, you’ve been caught and everyone now sees by your actions that you are truly u*****s.

      The governor is right in this by taking his decision.The borders are porous and smuggling allowed bombardment of the country with the dangerous virus[ COVID-19] to which the country had no clue.A scenario occurred in which the law enforcement saw a boat that smuggled people and stuff,it docked and the occupants joined a vehicle which disappeared to the community and the government could not say or do anything about this.The community needs additional help or security to protect the citizens.

    And now all of a sudden Foy says it wasn’t that bad?

    Foy, when protecting the people it’s best to do this with all possible measures. Not just the measures you control (which probably means you can ask them to let your friends through).

      Only weeks or months ago the chatter on the airways and blogs was about Constitutional Review. Interestingly the governor agreed also. Well, the topic needs to be reawakened. One of my main considerations and recommendation among the changes is that the premier be chosen by all the people. ATLARGE. It would be refreshing to see our premier moving around in our districts meeting and greeting and getting to know and hear from the people he represents; Not like the way it is, the chance of seeing the premier is only on Facebook. As it is, where a mere five or six hundred souls can hijack the other 34,000++ of us is grossly unfair and needs rolling back. Since the late 1970s when the late Hon Willard Wheatley got us off Grant In Aid, we should have long moved beyond this long outdated practice of the . Roll Call in session

    And what is one month of patrolling going to do for this ongoing issue?

    This Gov causing mischief unnecessarily. England’s COVID issue is out of control and they still reluctant to take drastic measures. We are getting things under control. The training and assistance in surveillance the Premier suggesting is just what we need. This problem ain’t going away in one month. Let’s be realistic.

    The Govs actions seem heavy handed and short term and short sighted. He seems to be using a misrepresentation of our current situation to give the impression that things are extremely bad here. Totally unnecessary but those who are blinded by party allegiance can’t see the true intention and picture. .

  38. Ruling Party says:

    A pathological liar is an individual who chronically tells grandiose lies that may stretch or exceed the limits of believability. While most people lie or at least bend the truth occasionally, pathological liars do so habitually. Whether or not pathological lying should be considered a distinct psychological disorder is still debated within the medical and academic communities.
    Normal Lies vs. Pathological Lies
    Most people occasionally tell “normal” lies as a defense mechanism to avoid the consequences of the truth (e.g. “It was like that when I found it.”) When a lie is told to cheer up a friend or to spare another person’s feelings (e.g. “Your haircut looks great!”), it may be considered a strategy for facilitating positive contact.

    In contrast, pathological lies have no social value and are often outlandish. They can have devastatingly negative impacts on those who tell them. As the size and frequency of their lies progress, pathological liars often lose the trust of their friends and family. Eventually, their friendships and relationships fail. In extreme cases, pathological lying can lead to legal problems, such as libel and fraud.

    Pathological Liars vs. Compulsive Liars
    Though often used interchangeably, the terms “pathological liar” and “compulsive liar” are different. Pathological and compulsive liars both make a habit of telling lies, but they have different motives for doing so.

    Pathological liars are generally motivated by a desire to gain attention or sympathy. On the other hand, compulsive liars have no recognizable motive for lying and will do so no matter the situation at the time. They are not lying in an attempt to avoid trouble or gain some advantage over others. Actually, compulsive liars may feel powerless to stop themselves from telling.
    Examples can be found in the house of Assembly: Namely the ruling Party…..
