DIRECT RULE IN THE BVI

On 5 May, the House of Commons Library published a briefing paper saying that in April, the findings of a Commission of Inquiry into alleged corruption and mismanagement in the BVI was published. This followed the arrest of the BVI Premier, Andrew Fahie, in the US, although his arrest is unrelated to the Commission’s findings or conclusions.  The Commission recommended the dissolution of the locally elected House of Assembly and ministerial government for at least 2 years.  The UK-appointed Governor, potentially with a local advisory council, would instead oversee reform.
