We received numerous complaints about Jaspert too

Premier Andrew Fahie

Premier Andrew Fahie has said he, too, received a large number of complaints about immediate past Governor Augustus Jaspert, and said he reported them to the United Kingdom on several occasions.

However, according to the Premier, the reports which were sent to the UK during Jaspert’s tenure fell on deaf ears.

Premier Fahie made the statement during a recent social media programme. He said he is now speaking of those matters about the former governor since he believes the territory’s reputation has been attacked in the international press since news of the Commission of Inquiry (COI).

“We have had many persons come to us about things dealing with the governor. We have had many instances with the governor. I have enough correspondences to fill this table that we have written with concerns with the governor overreaching our constitutional rights in the territory and every time the UK would write back, ‘we support Gus’,” Premier Fahie said.

“We have had sections where even the Attorney General had pointed out where the governor has gone past his remit in the constitution and at no point in the last 23 months has the UK addressed that. So, we understand what is happening here,” he added.

Where’s the substantive evidence?

Premier Fahie, who previously questioned how the former governor ordered the COI, had a few more questions he needed answers to.

“I’m not against the Inquiry providing that it is done transparently because we have nothing to hide. It’s a first time to see an inquiry for example speaking about COVID-19 funds, and when you see them went internationally and say that it was put into allies and friends’ pockets. Where is the information to substantiate this? How can you go internationally as a responsible human being and put these things out?” the leader of government business asked.

The Commission of Inquiry has already commenced and will see a number of hearings happening throughout the territory in the coming weeks.

      Dear Leader is circling the drain, trying to grab on to anything to stay afloat. His screams for help fall on deaf ears.

      Now he cries wolf and no one cares. How sad. He is inconsequential and has rendered himself non-essential.

      Wow.

      Carry on.

  2. Vengeance is the Lord’s says:

    Where was the substantive evidence when you were running down to the same Governor Jaspert every second of the day carrying tales on the previous administration? Where was the substantive evidence when you were at the top of your voice calling other people corrupt to gain cheap political points? For someone who quotes the bible and the Lord every two sentences you certainly do not understand the word at all. When you dig a pit for someone you should dig two. Look at you now wallowing in the same mess that you single handedly createad by untruths so that you could become Premier. Since you sat as Premier you have not had a chance to enjoy it. This is because you got it by being deceitful. You will get what you soo richly deserve.

    BVI wake up. I am not a 100% Fahie fan but I agree with the principle he stands for in this and many respect. Our laws only hold elected officials and public officers accountable but not the Governor. This is not democracy. This has to change.

    Jaspert needs to be looked into because he intentionally moved in such a way internationally in a blatant way to destroy our tourism and financial services industry. He needs to be held accountable for his ill advised actions. Now trying to fool us by telling us he loves us.

OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE SOME TYPE OF EVIDENCE. THE COI IS JUST LIKE THE FEDS. IF THE FEDS HAVE SOMETHING ON YOU, THEY HAVE SOMETHING ON YOU WITH EVIDENCE.

    Premier Andrew Fahie, First you said that your complaints about Governor Augustus Jaspert to the United Kingdom went on deaf ears and later on you said that every time the UK would write back, ‘we support Gus. I think the only deaf ears is yours, Do you think that the UK will move forward with this Commission of Inquiry if it didn’t have things to investigate the VIP and the NDP have been taking advantage of the people for far too long.
    How come the people of the BVI only now hearing about this, However, there is something you don’t understand the UK is over you and I think most people of the BVI liked what the Governor was doing he looked into what was going on in the BVI and saw it fit to call for a Commission of Inquiry.
    I hope when this is all over he will be back in the BVI to run the BVI until the next election. It’s about time both parties answer to the people of the BVI.

    You and your ministers keep saying that the territory’s reputation has been attacked, It’s the Government’s reputation has been attacked.
    I hope when this is all over the BVI will be able to see the light, Every time you come with these things you make yourself look more guilty.

    Everybody got a breaking point. The BVI isn’t immune to the craziness of other places. The Trumpets attacked the Capitol when their last hope failed, after marching for too long the people start to riot. This plot or whatever the UK got brewing, trying to cripple financial services and create instability in the BVI will only result in people emigrating to the UK if $h!t hits the fan. I don’t know any strong black person that know their history that wants the UK to take over. We don’t want independence because we don’t have the natural resources or manpower but we don’t want no UK takeover. We come too far to take a step back in our evolution. The UK tossed us aside when they thought we were nothing but a bird sanctuary. We became a major financial hub of the Caribbean and a go to place for people from the Caribbean, Asia and Europe to work and live with little help from the UK. We will not go backwards.
