Rosan-Jones blast Governor, UK over unreleased VI CoI Report

Rosan-Jones blast Governor, UK over unreleased VI CoI Report

Controversial and outspoken talk show host, Rosemary R. Rosan-Jones has blasted the United Kingdom (UK) appointed Governor John J. Rankin, CMG, and the UK Government over the unpublished CoI report now in the hands of the Governor.

This comes as pressure continues to mount for the VI public to have preview of the report ahead of local Premier Andrew A. Fahie (R1) traveling to the UK for meetings connected to the CoI report and its recommendations.

“I want to be as clear as possible on my position as it relates to the release of the COI report, and the future of these Virgin Islands. The people of the Virgin Islands are firm on our position that we must see the contents of said report before anyone heads off to the UK to discuss, or determine our fate/future,” she said.

Rosan-Jones made the comments in a Facebook statement released today, April 23, 2022, where she also said the suspension of the VI constitution will not be accepted as an option.

Mrs Rosemary R. Rosan-Jones who also will be running as an At-Large Candidate in the 2023 elections, also called on the Governor to take appropriate steps against those who are responsible and accused the past Governors of being complicit in the actions being carried out in this territory over the decades.


Governors have been complicit - Rosan-Jones


Mrs Rosan-Jones, who will also be running as an At-Large Candidate in the 2023 elections, also called on the Governor to take appropriate steps and accused the past Governors of being complicit in the actions being carried out in this territory over the decades.

“You have turned a blind eye. You are as responsible for where we are at this moment,” she added.

Meanwhile, the talk show host also rejected any idea of an interim government, even if it is made up of Virgin Islanders, “We don’t care who it is. We will not accept any infringement on our democracy or any attack on the advancements that our forefathers have made,” she said.

Ever since the final CoI report was handed over to the Governor on April 5, 2022, pressure has been mounting for him to make it public, with calls coming from the public, local social commentators as well as the VI Opposition headed by Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8).
