Allegations Reported by Governor Are Reckless, Damaging — Premier


(BVI News) Premier Andrew Fahie has labelled the recent allegations made public by Governor Augustus Jaspert as both damaging and reckless and has jumped to the defense of his government’s spending following claims suggesting a lack of transparency.

The Premier’s response came only hours after Governor Jaspert’s statement on Thursday, as he said the allegations could have serious implications to the territory’s reputation, locally, regionally and internationally.

“It is unfortunate that Governor Jaspert has chosen to make these damaging and reckless statements when, by his own admission, the veracity of these allegations has not been established by him or any investigative body,” Premier Fahie stated.

He added: “I am very concerned that the manner in which the Governor has chosen to make his ambiguous pronouncements — with broad statements and withholding even the most basic of details — assaults not just the integrity of all members of your elected government, but that of our honest, hardworking public officers who operate the machinery of our public service – and in particular those public officers whose roles include accounting and finance.”
