WTF, British Virgin Islands ? To even suggest that your disgraced, defrocked Premier, Andrew Fahie, could attend meeting of the HOA ( local version of Parliament) virtually, means that the circumstances of his arrest mean nothing to the former Speaker of the House of Assembly, or elected leaders in general in the BVI.
OK, I get it; you have excused it by stating that other HOA Members have been able to attend virtually, when illness or distance is the reason, but Fahie spat on the BVI, bigtime, when he openly bragged about his continued violation of its law as a long-time associate of narcotics traffickers.
DO NOT let this individual anywhere near the seat of government; his upcoming trial ands conviction will taint BVI government for years. he deserves no favours from those whom he betrayed for lucre. Pray for his soul in church, but do not enable him by giving him a forum to claim his innocence, and possibly retain his influence, so that his associates, empowered by your dumb move, can continue to corruptly influence local government. Avoid him, please, for he will be convicted, one way or another, soon enough.
