BVI: Claude Skelton Cline arrested, slapped with criminal charges


(BVI News) Former government consultant Pastor Claude Skelton Cline has been arrested in connection with an ongoing criminal investigation into government contracts awarded from 2008 to 2010.

The 58-year-old clergyman from Ballast Bay was charged with two counts of obtaining property by deception, four counts of false accounting, and one count of proceeds of crime, the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) stated on Friday, May 17.

He was served with the charges on that date.

“This comes following a complex investigation led by the COI, which spanned over 18 months. As the matter is now sub judice, the RVIPF will make no further comment,” the police stated.
