FAT HOGS BAY, Tortola VI- It was a bombshell funeral service yesterday Sunday February 11, 2018 at the Fat Hogs Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church on Tortola for the first full time locally appointed Magistrate, Charmaine R. Rosan-Bunbury.

Mrs Rosan-Bunbury died on December 31, 2017 of cancer in a United Kingdom hospital. However, her sister Rosemary R. Rosan-Jones aka ‘Cindy’ and Husband Alec G. Bunbury Sr, have alleged that it was not the cancer that killed her but the injustice, wicked treatment, and financial and political victimisation she faced at the hands of the judicial system and the Government.

Her sister Cindy told the public that “As a young, gifted Virgin Islander returning from law school, Charmaine was ready and most willing to serve her country in her chosen capacity. In so doing, she joined the team at the Attorney General’s Chambers.”

Sexual harassment at AG Chambers

In a frank and honest way, she alleged that her deceased sister Charmaine faced "adversities" at the government workplace but most concerning to her and “detrimental to her continued growth were those of pressures of a sexual nature and misconduct levied on her…The age old worst nightmare of any woman; especially for those willing to make an impact,” her sister told the church, to shocked funeral attendees, including Ministers of Government and Deputy Governor Rosalie Adams.

Ms Rosan-Jones suggested that the late Magistrate “was one who internalised, and this weighed heavily on her. She was soon being held back in advancing in her career because like I mentioned earlier, she stood firm on principle. A young bright Virgin Islander’s career was now weighing in the balance.”

Others faced sexual harassment; Culture of cover up

There continues to be other current allegations of sexual harassment around the Territory, both in the public and private sectors, against both males and females.

A few years ago, a Minister of Government was accused of sexual harassment and it reportedly reached the highest level, to the Governor’s Office; however, it was covered-up. It remains unclear who was the elected official, as to date the accused politician has not been named.

    Perhaps I missed it but who really was the person Charmaine. I keep hearing about the injustice that was done to her but it would have been good to hear more about the positive side of her character and any thing she might have achieved in her career as a lawyer or Magistrate.

    A funeral is no place for that kind of rhetoric. I am not saying they could not have had their say but not in the church and at her funeral. If they felt so strongly why wasn't action taken before she passed. I find this in poor taste.

    For the ones who say a funeral is not the place to air dirty laundry, I say you are wrong. A funeral is where you should tell the truth and not cover up any guilty parties. They should be named so everyone would know how they mistreated the dearly departed. If the deceased was the bad person, people should stand up and tell the truth. May Mrs. Rosan Bunbury rest in eternal peace. Sympathies to her husband, children and rest of her family. She was a very nice woman.

    Yep ... There are so many she-whores out there sexually harrassing married men. Telling them to spit in the face of the most high, their creator, by pressuring them to engage in sexual misconduct. I wonder what kind of beings these she-whores are. Where did they actually come from and how do they feel about themselves?
