Andrew A. Fahie now allowed to leave apartment for medical & attorney visits

A Florida judge has allowed ex-Premier of the Virgin Islands (VI) Andrew A. Fahie liberty to travel for medical treatment and attorney visits in preparation for his criminal trial.

Fahie, 52, is accused of conspiring with former BVI Ports Director Oleanvine Maynard, 61, and her son, Kadeem Maynard, 31, in a cocaine trafficking and money laundering scheme, and the trio were arrested in April 2022 in a sting operation by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.

The former VI Premier is currently on one million dollars bail – $500,000 cash and $500,00 surety –and has to wear an ankle monitor.

Theresa van Vliet, the attorney for Andrew A. Fahie, recently filed an unopposed motion in the US District Court in the Southern District of Florida to modify the conditions of bond and permit her client to travel on a limited basis.

Motion to relax bail conditions unopposed

Mr Fahie’s lawyer Theresa van Vliet recently filed an unopposed motion in the US District Court in the Southern District of Florida to modify the conditions of bond and permit her client to travel on a limited basis.

Fahie is not currently allowed to travel for medical and attorney visits, “requiring the undersigned to travel to Defendant’s small two-bedroom apartment which is shared with his two daughters for client visits,” Van Vliet had written.

Ms Van Vliet on Friday, April 7, 2023, asked the court to adjust the bail conditions so her client can travel 45 minutes to her Fort Lauderdale office to have meetings, and this will be done no more than three times a week. As part of Van Vliet’s argument, she said as the trial nears, there will be more need to meet with her client frequently and for longer periods.

Ms Van Vliet also requested that Mr Fahie be allowed to leave his house to seek health care services in the form of dental care with follow-up visits.

Mr Fahie and the Maynards have pleaded not guilty to all charges, including conspiracy to import a controlled substance, conspiracy to engage in money laundering, and attempted money laundering. Fahie and Oleanvine Maynard are also charged with one count each of interstate and foreign travel in aid of racketeering.

Their trial is currently scheduled to begin on July 17, 2023.
