ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI –Former Deputy Premier of the Virgin Islands (VI), Queens Council, Ms R. Dancia Penn-Sallah, on September 18, 2018—at a Special Sitting to mark the official opening of the 2018-2019 Law Year of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC)—brought the memory of the Late Magistrate, Charmaine R. Rosan-Bunbury to life.

Ms Penn-Sallah was one of six persons in the Judiciary to speak locally, at the opening and reminded the Court that the Late member, was never accorded the due respect with a Special Sitting after her passing.

Pointing out that the 2017-2018 opening Ceremony did not take place as planned—due to the damage caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria—Ms Penn-Sallah told the Judicial Officers present, “I wish to remember in particular, the Honourable Magistrate who died on Old Year’s Day last year –December 31, 2017.”

Privilege

She said Ms Rosan-Bunbury was not accorded the privilege that is accorded to every Lawyer who died; that privilege being a Special Sitting of the Court, in memory of a departed Officer.

“I sincerely believe that it would be deeply remiss of me if I did not this morning, today, mention and place on record our tribute and our thanks to the late Charmaine Rosan-Bunbury.”

According to Ms Penn-Sallah, the late Magistrate was a member of the Legal Profession and Judiciary who “served and she served well….Her sacrifices should not go unnoticed and unrecorded, and I place on record in this Court today our tribute and our thanks.”

Her Ladyship, the Honourable Madam Justice, Vicki A. Ellis was also among those to acknowledge the passing of Ms Rosan-Bunbury.

The Late Magistrate, who passed in a United Kingdom hospital, was born in the Virgin Islands on May 7, 1971.

    Well done Ms. Penn. Prove once more that you are a woman of integrity and fairness. Thank you for remembering Charmaine. It is her own colleagues who sought to bring her down, so why would they hold a special Judas sitting in her honor?

    The BVI Government is to blame for the demise of many of our locals. These islands are filled with heartless and wicked people; I am convinced that the IRMARIA episode was no accident, just KARMA.
