FREDERIKSTED, St Croix, USVI- Attorney General of the US Virgin Islands (USVI) Denise N. George was terminated on Saturday, December 31, 2022, after serving four years with the Bryan administration, the Consortium can confirm.

The decision by Governor Albert A. Bryan Jr to fire the AG came just days after Bloomberg News revealed that Ms George in her capacity as [US] VI Attorney General had filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase — the largest bank in the United States and the world's largest bank by market capitalisation— without first informing Governor Bryan of such a major action, said a person with knowledge of the matter.

The lawsuit claims JPMorgan Chase facilitated convicted felon Jeffrey E. Epstein's abuse of women and girls, alleging that the bank should have known about Epstein’s illegal activity and as part of its anti-money laundering procedures, should have reported their client to authorities.

George accused the bank of turning a blind eye to the sex trafficking operations that went on on Epstein’s private island in the USVI, Little St James.

JP Morgan as of Thursday, December 29, 2022, had not yet commented on the lawsuit, however, reports from a source to the Guardian newspaper are that the disgraced financier’s relationship with the bank ended “long before his ongoing misconduct became known."

People familiar with the situation said Mr Bryan had been frustrated with Ms George for sometime and that her action against the bank was the final straw.

      Here in the BVI, they don’t take things like that as serious. Business is business. If my mother is working in my business and she mess up, I will terminated her services, not because she is my mother she should get a pass. She will understand it is not personal it is business.

      In the BVI it is the DPP that needs to be fired.

    She’s right but filling that lawsuit is like talking bout the jews in the entertainment industry.

    She should have known she was going to get chopped after going up against JPMorgan Chase without consulting with the Governor. She went out of her boundaries.

      She sure did step out of her bounds on this. Not because she was Attorney General, that give her the right to file a lawsuit before conferring with Bryan first. JPMorgan had already severed ties with Epstein way before he was in trouble.JPMorgan is a powerhouse in the banking industry. She put herself on the chopping block.

        Wonder if Joe Biden's coinciding holiday visit had an influence on AG's termination?

    This brings to mind Najan Christopher's diplomatic immunity letter to DEA. Once you mess with the Big Fish look out they are coming at you one way or the other.

    Hmmmm, where have we heard this story before? Let see, biden flys to Ukraine and gets a prosecutor fired for investigating his crack addict sons dealing with Burisma and now he's in the USVI and the AG is fired for going after a child sex trafficker's financial enablers. Totally a coincidence though.

      You may have hit the Bullseye. Biden's brother James purchased land on Water Island in 2005 also. Short boat trip to Little St. James aka Epstein Island

        Biden goes nowhere without first being informed of the “lay of the land” and what favors he needs to address. George’s track record, great as it was, couldnt over come a Biden request.
