ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Information coming into our news centre is that police today Friday, May 17, 2024, have arrested and charged a popular clergyman and a former Government Consultant Mr Claude O. Skelton Cline on matters relating to Government contracts.

Police said the arrest was made in relation to an ongoing criminal investigation regarding contracts awarded from 2008-2010.

Police further added that Mr Skelton-Cline, 58, of Ballast Bay was charged with two counts of obtaining property by deception, four counts of false accounting and one count of proceeds of crime.

CoI led investigations 

This comes following a complex investigation led by the Commission of Inquiry (COI) that spanned over 18 months with the police adding that given the matter is now in sub judice, the RVIPF will make no further comment.

Skelton-Cline, a popular clergyman and social commentator had been a vocal opponent of the CoI which he frequently criticized on his then ZBVI 780am ‘Honestly Speaking’ radio show as one that felt like "targeting and victimisation".

Our News Centre will bring more information as it becomes available.

      Well, Honestly Speaking, if you have mud on your face, a big disgrace, you don't keep hollering from the highest mountain, because someone below is listening. Bringing attention to yourself allows officials to start looking into your background. You set yourself up with your mouth always yapping. Those who live in glass houses should not be throwing stones. Well, getting arrested was more attention than you expected. Stealing property, false accounting, and proceeds from a crime? Tell us again how you are a man of the cloth. This is why I follow no one.

        A lot of them supposed to be upholders of the law but they are the worst breakers of Virgin Islands laws. Making deductions from their employees' salaries
        1. to buy their clothing,
        2. to keep parties for their friends and business partners,
        3. to take luxurious trips, buy vehicles for themselves or
        their children
        4. to have their doggie fixed or to take their doggie to the
        Dog Spa
        These are people call themselves, caring, kind and christian minded. However, they lie and cheat their employees out their benefits. Then if you speak up or out, they fire you or make yourcjob redundant. Labour is a waste of time so don't bother going there. Anyways, this will be the year they get
        found out. God is tired of his people getting treated in a
        manner not even fit for animals. BTW. isn't it against the law to withold your employee's NHI, SS and Gov't Taxes to the Virgin Islands Gov't?. Isn't it against the Law to write a cheque to an employee or a client knowingly that there are no funds to cover that particular cheque, isn't it against the law to with-hold funds which should be dispensed to a client account instead using it for yourself and lying to the client for months? Perhaps, they need to be sanctioned like Russia because they are no better than the criminals they cater to.

    , Claude Skelton Cline.

    Clergyman and former government consultant Claude Skelton Cline has refused to answer critics in the wake of a scathing audit report over his contracts between 2019 and 2021 with the former Andrew Fahie-led government.

    “The conversations in regards to contracts I had with the Virgin Islands Party government, I worked my a double scribble off and did a phenomenal job for my part in a two-part contractual arrangement,” Skelton Cline said on the Honestly Speaking radio show yesterday.

    He continued: “I’ve said that before. I say it again, and I want you to hear me, because I feel no compulsion to defend myself. My documentations and record speaks for that and anything else, Jehovah will be my defence.”

    The report issued by Auditor General Sonia Webster showed that Skelton Cline’s three contracts with the government — which netted in excess of $365,000 all together — brought nothing of value to the government.

    “The audit confirmation exercises performed indicate that much of the work reported or claimed by the consultant (Skelton Cline) was undertaken by persons and programmes independent of the consultancy. In a number of cases, his association with the programmes was either fleeting or non-existent,” Webster noted in her report.

    Not easy loving your enemies

    Among other things, the clergyman touted his emotional sobriety and suggested that he does not harbour grudges and resentment.

    “Some members of the House of Assembly took the time to say all manner of things yesterday,” Skelton Cline commented. “But what I want to say to this nation… Love your enemies. It’s not easy.”

    “You see, I have learned to live with an unoffended heart. And this is why no matter what some of the persons may have said on yesterday, it’s, you know, love your enemies,” Skelton Cline added.

    He also saw his present circumstances as an opportunity for a ‘national teachable moment’ to practice what he often teaches in relation to forgiveness to those that hate.

    “I can be pulled in different directions, but I have called all of that,” he said. “I have called my flesh. I have summoned emotional sobriety to use this opportunity as a teachable moment because you see, while I can come on here, I have two choices. I can defend myself or I can represent God. I am choosing today to represent God.”

    There is no defence. He knows it. He will never admit any wrong doing and maybe even believes he has done no wrong. Maybe he believes he was entitled to the money.

    We only know God when it is convenient. This dude bleed the country for years starting with Judge Mattis scam. Andrew was the one who brought this guy to caucus when he was education minister. I am sure God warned him from back then to refrain from evil. The money was sweet and to make it more legal he moved back to BVI from Detroit so he can me able to jump to every opportunity and run down the road instead of having to catch a plane every time. It was always a set up between he and Andrew to drain the public funds by hook or by crook. Only thing is that the 2 of them were on the same level of greedy so the one who now dealing with the courts was not getting his agreed cut from the other greedy one. This dude house roof was allegedly the same as the cruise pier. Mister, God does not bless crookedness and he will expose your evil in his own time. so you don’t have to ask him to deal with it. As a minister in the church, he will beat you with extra whips too because you are a crooked church teef trying to do it legally. Did you hand over all that money to God? leave him out your mess. You had time to ask for forgiveness and stop while you were ahead, but no, you so wicked and wax so cold that you wanted more and more and up to now, still aint get enough. You sell yourself to the highest bidder and when push shoving, you take whatever is laid on the table for you to grab. Now go to he**

    $365,000 to basically act as a shill and a cheerleader for the VI, pumping the party and the government’s actions on the radio and in media just like this…
    If you can find it, that’s a great occupation!
    But for me, I want my tax dollars returned please, I’m highly dissatisfied with the product received.

    At least Kwame Kilpatrik took his punishment like a man and by now is well-known by the Taxpayers and not to allow him anywhere nearTax-payers money again. Wake up Bvi, (born here or born there)☀️9

    If thou be a genuine Man of God, then I hope your conscience (if you have one) allows you to do the right thing and PAY BACK into the Treasury the funds belonging to the BVI taxpayers that you did not work for – every penny of it.

    The sad truth is we need to ask where were the persons who are paid by the country to administer these contracts? CSC cannot bear all the blame as he did not pay himself, another person or persons must also be held responsible. Govt workers getting away without prosecution but CSC did not go into the treasure with gun, he was given the country’s money by the responsible civil servants and they must be held responsible and charged as well.

    We all reap what we sow, and what’s in the dark will eventually come to light. This is according to the Bible in which he say he believes in. But the book also said, you shall judge them by their fruits/labor. And clearly the public isn’t happy about his the fruits he produce. I wonder if he even planted a seed to begin with.

    You have to talk in terms he would understand.

    Is this case for CSC going to end up like the one with Wade Smith and then he turn round and sue the Government?

    What about those other Officers who have been charged with Breach of Trust and the PS who was sent home on Administrative Leave - the one who was working in the former Ex-Premier Office?

    This man has been doing a lot of damage to our VI under false pretenses for long time. Just go back on YOU TUBE and watch him with the COI. He too cocky, and tomorrow, or next Sunday, he in church like a saint. He collected 1000’s of $’s in contracts to help the BVI youths, who he was supposed to be helping, with his knowledge and programs. But give them used computers and never showed up in VG and other locations as was in his contract. Just go back and watch him speak like he is innocent and untouchable. Watch and beware of these jacket and tie folks, who act like they knows it all, and is so Godly. He think his mouth is powerfull? Humble yourself cline, god no like ugly. Let your light shine honestly, but that’s too late. Those who take money under false pretenses, will repay back some how sooner than later. God not sleeping

    Didn’t seem like news to me. It’s from 2008, when does a suspected crime get excluded from the books, and when was it suspected that it’s was a crime , two days ago? Then the DPP office sign off on it that is something there that warrant an arrest. I never thought the place were real, this prove nothing. Same silliness with the wall. Please people tell me something I don’t know.
