BVI: INQUIRY INTO CLAIMS OF CORRUPTION AND POLITICAL INTERFERENCE – ALL WITH THE PUBLIC PURSE

On 18 January, Sky News reported that the Foreign Secretary says he was “extremely concerned about the state of good governance” in the British territory.  Claims of widespread corruption and fraud involving millions of pounds of public money are being investigated.  The governor has ordered an independent inquiry into the allegations and is supported by both the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary.  One of the claims is that $40 million set aside for struggling families during the COVID pandemic might have been channelled to political allies.
