ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Controversial talk show host Rosemary Cindy Rosan-Jones has reportedly been interviewed by the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) over a complaint made by a private citizen.

It is our understanding that a prominent attorney filed a complaint against Ms Rosan-Jones, claiming slander and libel under the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act, which was amended in 2019.  

The talk show host and activist, who announced a few months ago that she will be running as an At-Large candidate in the next general elections, is often accused of spewing hate against those who she does not like or do not share similar views as hers.

Social Media post by Cindy with photo of 'house'

Sources in the RVIPF familiar with the matter told our news centre that there was a warrant issued for Ms Rosan-Jones’ cellular phone. The matter is related to a post she made on WhatsApp around  May 1, 2022. The post was allegedly a photo of a house and the alleged owner, which the publisher associated to a sting operation involving former Premier Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1).

In the Affidavit on the Fahie arrest, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent spoke of a house on Tortola where one of the meetings was held in relation to the sting operation that led to Mr Fahie’s arrest in Miami over a cocaine scheme.

The embattled talk show host appeared on Tola Radio with Mr Floyd Burnett aka 'Heritage HBH' this morning May 13, 2022, claiming that she will “take legal actions”, and that if they don’t back off they will “have a situation that they can’t deal with.”

Cindy threatens to sue police

She also threatened to sue the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and said she was not pleased with how she was dealt with by police.

The talk show host wrote on her Facebook page yesterday, May 12, 2022, "Royal Virgin Islands Police, If I go to bed without my phone tonight, I will turn up the BVI tomorrow on a different kind of level. You will not be able to handle the PR nightmare.

Entire red ants nest?

"I am an ENTIRE RED ANTS NEST. It takes a lot to get me angry and I don't disrespect or encourage strained relationships with law enforcement. But you are on a thin line with me," Rosan-Jones wrote.

Meanwhile, efforts to get a comment from the RVIPF proved futile up to time of publication.

It is unclear if her WhatsApp post about the house and the alleged owner and the allegations by Ms Rosan-Jones, that a meeting took place at the house, which led to the arrest of the former Premier, are accurate.

Hon Fahie, 51, was arrested at a Miami airport on April 28, 2022, along with Managing Director of the BVI Posts Authority Oleanvine Pickering-Maynard.

The DEA has alleged the duo promised to use the Virgin Islands Ports to facilitate a Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel to ship cocaine in return for payment, according to papers filed by United States prosecutors in the State of Florida.

      Who owns the house where the meeting took place?

      Why was it available for such a meeting!

      Why has he not denied that it was his house and that the meeting took place there

      Who lets his house be used for such things

      And why?

      What was the deal?

      Something about relatives belonger ship?

      No smoke without fire?

      I only ask questions.

      Not just the stone house, This article says she included a photo of the owner of the "stone" house. She may be right and she may be wrong, but unless she was at that meeting, it is supposition at this point and damaging to someone who may be innocent. Allowing someone to use a property for a private meeting does not mean the owner was made aware of the nature of the meeting. Not sure it is a crime to allow someone to use your property for a meeting. Note: I do not support the criminal activity that took place here (and for many years in our past), just pointing out that there is a line and she crossed it. There is no way I want that woman to represent me and my interests.

        If a photo references the owner of a house and nothing more that’s all it is a house and the owner.

      Once we have sly lawyers using the courts to hide the truth we are doomed.

      Whose house was it?

      Why was the meeting taking place there?

      These are the questions that need to be answered.

    Hypothetically under a completely corrupt government if a whistleblower had evidence against a criminal and the criminal knew you were speaking or writing about it before an investigation occurred the criminal could send the corrupt police officers to seize devices then search and destroy key evidence. Police being immune while conducting a search would not be responsible for incidental destruction of ‘irrelevant’ media & data.

    Do you legislators actually sit down and talk about what could go wrong concerning the legislation during the committee stage? That is a potentially society breaking bug ripe for abuse should it ever occur.

    Frazer seemingly the only one to object to nonsense when we needed it.

    Always seeking attention. Calling out people name on social media and then threatening to sue. Did she sue Vance Lewis yet? Did she sue VINO yet? We need start call her Sue Ellen. She like one of FLOW old plans. All talk and no action?

    Sad part is because off all that is wrong with the country a certain sector of the BVI public, who enjoy her antics, gravitate to her reckless and unprofessional behaviour. Blind being led by the blind.

    Quite a few people must have had sleepless nights now the RVIPS have all her communications. They need to extend their investion and find out what happen to her in Cayman.

    And to think she is a marketer? I can only imagine what her poor husband went through why he decide to distance himself from her publicly.
