ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Leader of the Opposition and Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) made it clear in a statement issued today May 28, 2018 that when he spoke at the Decision March rally on Thursday May 24, 2018 and when he signed the petition as one of the Leaders of the Territory, “I signed to protect the Virgin Islands Constitution Order of 2007 against any violations locally, regionally and internationally.”

Hon Fahie, in a short but weighty announcement, stated “If the UK is violating our Constitution, it must stop, If the National Democratic Party (NDP) Government is violating our Constitution, it must stop.”

NDP must stop the local violation

The First District Representative made known that “Unaudited financial statements are a breach of our Constitution. Seven million dollars for a plane that will not fly is a breach of our Constitution. Thirty million dollars over expenditure on the Cruise Pier Project is a breach of our Constitution, and they all must stop.”

The man who could be the next Premier of the Virgin Islands told the public that “If they do not stop locally, regionally and internationally, our jobs are at risk. Our way of living is at risk. We must restore transparency, accountability and good governance.”

We must police ourselves-Fahie

He said his message has been clear and consistent for the past five years and it will not change. The veteran politician added “Either we police ourselves or we will be policed in a manner that we all will not like.”

    I keep wondering when someone will hold the NDP accountable for all their violations and corruption.

    Are there processes in place to investigate and prosecute ex politicians for anything that is found out once Fahie takes office? There seems to be lots of smoke and mirrors regarding too many tings.

      The VI needs more stiffer legislation to safe guard against corruption by elected officials. This is a major problem under the NDP.

      I hope they can go back further, for twenty years and deal with all of them and I hope Fahie investigates himself also.

        The NDP organized that already and he came out with flying colors. We all know that wouldn't be the same for the NDP because they are going to jail.

    Doc told me he'd see to the ridiculous banking violations against me, not to mention the internet interferences
    connected to this. it spread back to my bank in the us as well. no one has come forward and the bank that
    triggered it all here, was not touched. Doc never got back or anyone. I think that's D*** serious and almost
    an act of war.

    Seem like our constitution is missing a very important component, a set of laws that can be enforced!!!

    Foy you marched for the disclosure issue. Why didn't you and the ex-opposition leader organize a march against the NDP corruption, and the lack of transparency? That was what we expected from the leaders of the opposition. Not a bunch of boloney talk all the time, fooling people acting like you are or were concerned? We want action and good governance in the country. I am wondering why you did not organize such a march? Just wondering!
