Coincidence? CoI report & Fahie arrest came almost simultaneously -Angelle A. Cameron

-Calls for persons to recognise that events still remain separate & should not build on case for UK Direct Rule

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Former Mrs BVI and ‘My BVI’ talk show host, Angelle A. Cameron has called for persons in the Virgin Islands to recognise that the arrest of former Premier Andrew A. Fahie (R1) and the release of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) report as separate events, despite them happening almost simultaneously.

Cameron was at the time speaking alongside Bishop John I. Cline during the May 30, 2022, edition of the My BVI show streamed on Facebook. 

Were events coincidental? - Cameron questioned 

“This is as much sarcasm as I can muster to say these words, that these events have happened almost simultaneously, and it builds on the negative narrative of the territory of the Virgin Islands,” she added.

While Direct Rule as a CoI recommendation came out of the report, Ms Cameron added “it is the best set of evidence for a case of takeover that I have ever seen. But… it's important for us to look at that coincidence and say, really? What is the likelihood of this truly being coincidental?”

She also questioned whether there were other factors at play so that the narrative could build against the BVI and called on persons to be honest about the reality of the whole situation, and how the events played out regarding the way forward. 

“But it also is important for us, those of us knowledgeable, those of us who live in the Virgin Islands, those of us are associated with the Virgin Islands to separate the narratives because they are two separate events, irrespective of how they were crafted. They are two different things, and one has nothing to do with the other.” 

CoI concluded before arrest of Premier - Mrs Cameron

To build on her point, Ms Cameron detailed that the CoI had already concluded and the recommendations were already on hand way before the Premier was arrested. 

“And because they have nothing to do with the other, it doesn't build a case. The unfortunate incident with the former Premier had absolutely nothing to do with the way we should govern moving forward.” 

Mrs Cameron; however, admitted that no jurisdiction is immune from the need to have processes and systems reviewed, audited and upgraded and that the CoI helped in that aspect for the VIrign Islands.

 “Yes, there are quite a number of considerations that we need to make based on the recommendations, a lot of them have good merit, a lot of them need proper consideration and there's some of them that we categorically will not accept because it is not conducive to us being a better nation for us in the future and one of those is the direct rule and the suspension of our Constitution,” she said  

No to UK direct rule 

Ms Cameron maintained; however, that the people of the VI will not accept direct rule as an option to move forward from the CoI and the arrest of the former Premier, “We will not accept that as a people and I think the virgin has wholistically agreed with that,” she added.

      You have someone who was Premier ABUSING HIS POSITION with other public officers and whilst others may not have known about the drugs, guns, and money laundering, other Ministers of Government sat by while unethical contracts were issued and corrupted Boards formed left right and center.

    When you are jealous of BVI it is important to defend the place you were born, but not to be selfish, you do not have an external life as a human, you should think better, in the future of your generation it is to see the best for this piece of land that does not offers many. Climate change may cause us to lose the beaches and our people in BVI only think of a small group to have it all, in the end when they see that nothing can be done they will run away and save what you can, then your old lady will think but all afternoons for your children

    The former premier committed the alleged crimes while he was Premier of the BVI. Another government official known to him was involved in the allegations and the use of government own facilities under their care/ control were suggested to be used to support the crime. At the time of the arrest, he was in the USA on reported government business. He may have made a personal decision to engage in illicit behavior but in doing so he plunged the BVI into the abyss of plausible corruption that send ripples around the world. Every major news site reported that "The Premier of the BVI " not just a name, was arrested on drugs and money laundering charges. How could you then divorce the crimes of the man from the plight of the country he once lead? The world of journalism and people would eventually forget this story but whenever the name of Andrew Fahie is mentioned his crimes will be forever married to the BVI.

    This is information that l am sure every VI person already knew. I am not saying it's not true however, l have to ask does she really consider herself a Virgin Idlander or is it cause she live there and using the fact that people in the VI believe that foreigners are SMART, this girl have said before she can pack up with her kids and family and go back America but her status in this small island has her as a big person, hmm, really

      You seem to not know he worships a god not God and refers to his god as “The Great Architect of the Universe”.

      The man also deals in witchcraft so try go and read God’s Word.

      People seem to think they could twist the Word of God to suit themselves.

      Matthew 7:21-23

      21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

    … the arrest of Fahie and the timing of the COI report were directly connected. The arrest was set up after ‘meetings’ in October and March and was the true reason for the last extension of the COI. It would be naive for anyone to think otherwise. But the problem the UK has now is that it cannot decide whether to suspend the Constitution (which was the original plan, from the outset of the COI) or to give the Unity Government some time.

      Yes the two may be connected but it definitely showed the lack of integrity the former Premier of the BVI had, an individual who constantly detested corruption but was caught in the middle of an operation involved in drug trafficking and money laundering. A "sting" operation which began while the COI was taking place. Just my two cents.

    Angelle A. Cameron, the main issue at hand is not the oI, not Andrew A. Fahie arrested, not the UK probably direct rule of the BVI affairs temperary not you, not me,not skin colour of people or origin of birth, but mainly our elected politicians mismanagement of our, we the people finances. Stop trying to draw people attention away from our central concern by the use of sly tactical speeches. We both heard and read what you said, as many, and I see things now, you not helping us solved our political core problem in the BVI, but rather you are sowing further discord, politically, socially, and economically. In other words, you a hater of good governance, in many, and my honest opinion.

    no foreign agents can enter this territory and conduct operations without the knowledge of the commissioner of police who will in turn chat with his uk affiliate the governor

    of course it was a set up. That is why the delay in the release of the report. Credit is due to the Unity Government move. The crabs who have instantly started to attack the new premier need to realize that they are doing serious damage to a wounded BVI. Sit y'all stupid @##@$ down and stop being circus clowns. Some just want to be heard and seen no matter the consequences of their ignorant and foolish words and actions. The first new industry needs to be a Bull Pissle factory.

    I support the Unity Government to get us out of this mess. If we keep on fighting each other and being negative we will never get out. Give the Unity Government a chance and when election time we have the opportunity to vote. If we have no constitution it will not be a democratic society. United we stand devided we fall. Mistakes were made let us get up off the floor, stop ringing our hands in despair and bawling for help. We are not that kind of people. Let this be a lesson to us as we move forward with our heads held high and be better people. Stop letting others tell us we cannot when we damn well know we can. Our fore fathers toiled to get us to where we are. So we stumble it is called growing pains. Let us pick ourselves up off of the floor we do not belong there. To give in now is to admit we are loosers and that is what others want us to be. For God's sake let us get our selves together.
