Willock appalled! Says Najan Christopher only wrote a letter


Former Speaker of the House of Assembly Julian Willock expressed that he was appalled at the arrest of Najan Christopher last year.

Christopher, the former Director of the International Affairs Secretariat in the Premier’s Office, was arrested and charged in October 2022 for Breach of Trust and False Assumption of Authority. Her arrest came some five months after being branded by Premier Dr Natalio Wheatley as a “rogue” public officer.

It was a moniker she received for allegedly sending a missive on behalf of former Premier Andrew Fahie, seeking his ‘immediate and unconditional release’ from detention in the US on drug smuggling and money laundering charges.

“Something like that could have been dealt with internally, through the Public Service Commission. I’m so appalled,” Willock said on the Zulu 360 show on Tola Radio recently. 

Willock, who has himself been embroiled in controversy over the past few weeks, admitted recently to being arrested on suspicion of human trafficking but said he was released without any charges. 

The embattled former Speaker noted, however, that investigators kept all of his electronic devices and travel documents following his interrogation, but did not suggest any reason for the seizure.

“[Christopher] wrote a letter simply saying that the former Premier was head of government at the time and diplomatic immunity should be considered. She’s [now] before the courts, off her job, charged with Breach of [Trust], got to lawyer up. How can that be right? How can that be justice?” Willock questioned.

The former Speaker described the treatment meted out to himself and Christopher as harassment and part of a wider vendetta of political retribution. 

According to Willock, the plot being instigated was also to convince people that locals are incapable of running the country on their own.

“None of us are good, we’re all bad, we’re all corrupt, we all do illegal things, we all got our wealth through illegal activities – and here are they, holy, and only them can save us,” Willock protested while arguing that this notion should be rejected.

    The DPP does not seem able to competently prosecute anybody – the concern would only arise if she was fired and a competent DPP was to be appointed.

    One of the biggest problems with BVI is even when we determine for sure that something not right with the numbers or somebody do something that that shouldn’t have or procedure was blatantly disregarded nothing comes of it. Mr Willock seems to want things to stay the same he want everything dealt with internal and hush hush…It’s either she is guilty of what they have charged her with or she is not… I don’t see nobody making the argument that she is innocent and was within her right to do what she did.

    He is right. The Governor and Commissioner are abusing their powers to instill fear in the public servants and all residents of the BVI so they can take over for their UK Officials over them to put us in bondage and make life for us in the BVI worse than ever but trying to convince us otherwise. Wake up BVI.

  12. He should be appalled says:

    that this lady put in writing that the disgraced premier was a head of state. Fortunately the well educated US judge at the hearing recognized the the accused was the head of a mere colony. At the time of this hearing in mid 2022 the only head of state in the UK system of government was Queen Elizabeth.

    Very flattering that Willock wants to be me. But you need to learn better English Jules.

    Meanwhile Willocks answer to charges that he obtained visa waivers was that “ he obtained a few for friends “. He apparently sees nothing wrong with that.

    So thats alright then.

    If someone breaks the law, they should be arrested, prosecuted and tried. Period.

    There is no gray area here; government letterhead was purloined and used to illegally request diplomatic immunity from a foreign government by a person with zero authority to do so. That is not ‘overstepping’, she broke the PUBLIC trust of every VI Citizen.

    What the heck kind of a lawyer is Willock that he doesn’t know this?

  29. Never forget... says:

    Never forget, especially as the election cycle warms up in the next few months… The esteemed one has a vested interest in the old, pre CoI method of government. Graft and corruption – it is how the system works and the esteemed one champions it.
