The hearing began moments ago when Premier Fahie opted to kick things off with a brief prayer.
The COI then commenced questions about matters concerning Cabinet, which is the executive arm of government.
Not long after the start, the COI went into recess so they can paginate a document that the Premier had submitted to the COI as part of the hearing.
Premier Fahie’s appearance before COI today marks the third such occasion, at least.
BVI News will provide more information on his evidence in a subsequent publication.
The COI was issued on January 19, 2021 to look into whether corruption, abuse of office or other serious dishonesty may have taken place amongst public, elected and statutory officials in recent years. Following hearings, the Commission will make appropriate recommendations as to governance and the operation of the law enforcement and justice systems in the BVI.
