BVI: Are more high profile arrests on the horizon?

Walwyn was the third person arrested and charged for breach of trust by a public officer in relation to the controversial Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) perimeter wall project that reportedly suffered major cost overruns. The wall was a major subject of the Commission of Inquiry (COI) held in the BVI last year.

But based on what we’re seeing and based on the particular ministries and projects that are under investigation, I foresee that we’ll have a few more arrests and I could see a couple sitting members of the House Of Assembly actually being arrested.
