ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Word reaching our news centre from sources within the National Unity Government is that Director of the International Affairs Secretariat Najan Christopher has been identified as the public officer who prepared the letter from the Premier’s Office that purports to endorse former Premier Andrew A. Fahie’s notice to a Florida Federal court that he is immune from arrest.

The letter was later disavowed by now Premier and Minister of Finance Dr the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7).

The letter, dated May 3, 2022, which carries the letterhead of the Office of the Premier and is stamped by the International Affairs Secretariat, appears to endorse the Premier's argument for diplomatic immunity.  

The letter was requested by the former Premier’s Attorney, Theresa Van Vliet.

Drs Wheatley & O’Neal-Morton not aware

Dr Wheatley said at the time the letter was issued he was in the House of Assembly and Permanent Secretary in the Premier’s Office Dr Carolyn O’Neal-Morton was at her desk “attending to her normal duties”.

The now Premier noted earlier this week that both he and Dr O’Neal-Morton were unaware of the correspondence and blamed it on a “rogue public officer”.

He also noted that the "rogue public officer" would be “investigated” and the letter did not reflect the position of the Virgin Islands' Government.

Fahie was Premier @ the time- Christopher

It is our understanding that, when questioned, Ms Christopher said at the time she dispatched the letter Mr Fahie was still the Premier and she was in her right to take instructions from the Premier.

It was only yesterday, May 5, 2022, that a motion of no confidence against Mr Andrew A. Fahie was passed in the House of Assembly, stripping him of the Premier's title.

When reached by our newsroom, Ms Christopher said: “I do not wish to comment.”

        This woman has no morals. Fahie is in prison for alleged drug trafficking, bribery, and money laundering (not to mention destroying the reputation of the territory and attempting to sell it out to drug lords) and she takes it upon herself to write a high handed letter demanding his release.

        She did not consult the attorney general, did not consult the permanent secretary, did not consult the acting premier, did not consult the governor. She is either a fool or equally corrupt.

        She should be dealt with appropriately.

        Ms. Christoper is the International Affairs Secretariat of the Premier's Office , a high level position from even prior to 2008 when I was there. The former premier was ousted yesterday 5th May her letter was written on 3rd. In that regard it was a letter legally written, though morally questionable .

          This woman did not break any law and she probably didn't break any protocol either. However, as a high level public officer you need to have a higher level ability to recognize a questionable request even if legal. She should have submitted/ received approval from the permanent secretary. You can't have rogue public officers in such high positions. It's bad enough we have to worry about our elected leaders.

If that this lady is the head of that office she technically did nothing wrong. AF was the still the Premier at the time so he was still the boss. Think!

      If just like you going to the bank for the loan and you disclosed you are employed by AF and the ask for employment letter and call AF for confirmation and AF confirm. Then next day you quit or fired does that makes the letter fraudulent or invalid....I think not.

    At the end of the day this comes down to ETHICS. As we move forward on this new political paradigm ethics is going to be the rule of the day. "Technically" Mr. Fahie still carried the title of Premier. At his present location, should he have been allowed to give instructions even if via his legal council?... NO! As it relates to the new unity government, there are persons like Ms. Christopher who may be loyal to "people" and not loyal to the integrity of the "OFFICE". The integrity of the office should always trump loyalty to people. That means that your functions and duties are to be held to the highest standard of professionalism and ethics regardless of party affiliation/family ties and this is the biggest problem we have in the BVI. Elected officials may have the best intentions and be sabotaged by rotten tomatoes.

    If she thought it was legal and within her rightful scope, she would have signed her name and full signature on the document. Furthermore the Virgin Islands Constitutional Order leaves diplomatic relations to her Majesty and not the government of the VI. Who was she to interpret this law? Did she get permission from the AG after she drafted the document? She needs to be arrested and give account of her actions.

    She should be sacked and prosecuted - Natalio Wheatley was acting Premier and should have given his permission for this document to be sent out. So she forged the document and over stepped her authority.

    She broke the law as she did not have the authority to send it at all. Corrupt practice through and through - sack her and lock her up.

    The COI report warned us about interference coming from different levels of government that would impede any investigations. She knew the Premier's powers had been suspended and she didn't act alone.

    These are some of the very things that have us in the mess we are in presently with the COI report. Leaders giving "directives" to public officers to carry out duties/functions that are not lawful. Why didn't the lawyer reach out to the Acting Premier or the Permanent Secretary, who is responsible for the overall administration of the Premier's Office?

    The question is: does she has the AUTHORITY to compose such a letter on behalf of the Government, and then is claiming Immunity?

    Who signed the letter?, A official significant document like that, must come from and authorize by the Governor, or the Deputy Premier or AG

    . I can not for the life of me figure out why you idiots can't understand that Fahie was the premier of the BVI up until Mr. Wheatly was sworn in. Why is that so hard to comprehed? Gurl people just do not like you. That is all what this noise is about. She was instructed by the premier to send a document and she folliwed suit. Noting wrong there. Move on!

      The issue is many of you want to use your legal degree whether achieved or imagined to justify actions to say whether or not she “could” rather than determine whether or not she “should”. After you are able to wrap your argumentative mind around that and indemnify the difference, then and only then will we be able to make right decisions. Slavery used to be legal

    Well Najan you and God alone know. You prepared yourself for this molestation. You took the shot. It was worth it Don’t it. Now the public will think you should not be around public office and public funds. The public think you are now shady. They think you wrote the letter like a little dirty thief in the night. You are tainted for life. Your moral standard dropped to ground zero. It’s a shame and disgrace many will say. You know why you did it. They will say your heart is unclean and your eyes are piercing with deception. Most of all they will say you cannot be TRUSTED. you now in the same league as the GREAT BROWN BROMBER ANDREW ALTURO FAHIE. You are a big girl now. You wear big panty and your chest broad they will say. My advise is take it to God alone. I look forward to the salvage of the name Najan Christopher.

    This whole 'rogue letter' debate is a tempest in a tea cup compared to the main issue of inmate Fahie's claim for 'diplomatic immunity'. This claim is only valid for HEADS OF STATE and in the UK that is the QUEEN. Even the dumbest kids in primary school know this fact. So please quit the endless bickering about who did what on May 3rd because it does not matter. What matters is the the 51 year old elected head of a British Overseas Territory erroneously believed that he was a head of state for the BRITISH Virgin Islands a mere colony in the Caribbean and so did Najan Christopher. How did A. Fahie and N. Christopher ever get through primary school is a mystery that will never be solved.

    I going to wait and see if this woman retains her job. It is clear she is not qualified to hold the post. The only thing within her scope was to provide confirmation that he was indeed Premier. She went too far when she claimed he had Diplomatic Immunity, that is for the Governor to respond to. She overstepped her bounds by demanding Fahie be released and given free passage home

    Rogue? This was a blatant and egregious mistake and Najan should take accountability for it because she knows protocol - both internationally and officially. So yes, rogue is a appropriate descriptor. She won't be fired and she shouldn't be! Firing her would "prove a point" yes, but if only her good works, good governance and good projects were highlighted and broadcasted like this you might also see a Civil Servant who loves these Virgin Islands, its people, and history, and who usually works tirelessly to ensure that the BVI is well represented and engaged with the international community. Terrible mistake Najan. Own it and move forward. Keep your head up.

    Meaning of Rogue: a dishonest or unprincipled man, a dishonest or worthless person, scoundrel, a mischievous person, scamp, vagrant, or a tramp. Sister Maynard would add a little crook to this list. Now the BVI allegedly has two likkle crooks. Kareem should add likkle crook to his dictionary. All jokes a side. Let’s send up prayers for this Territory.

    “How important is your integrity?

    The real beauty of a person comes from their strong character, honesty, loyalty and sense of responsibility. When a person loses these values, no matter how beautiful they look physically, they become unattractive.

    The real test of integrity happens when we go through a tough time. In the most difficult times of life, you may come across an opportunity that might demand your integrity. If you are able to preserve your values of life at that time, you will not only be successful but feel strong in yourself.

    Always hold on to your integrity. Tough time won’t last forever but if integrity falls, you will fall in your own eyes.”

    When will Najan Christopher be arrested?? Here we go. If Najan Christopher is not arrested, then we know school is out and same old same old will reign in the BVI. Take cover all of you who outed yourselves publicly as wanting this corrupt Govt ended. No arrest of Najan, no end to the completely corrupt BVI Government and Public Service under John Rankin... Here we go. We are watching and waiting. . . and actually expecting to be disappointed by our Governor John Rankin, Police Commissioner and of course the stupid useless rat pack the Unity Party. Watching and the days are passing fast proving no justice in the BVI.
