Police are still waiting for Director of Audit Dahalia Sealey to complete her report in the wake of the May 21 resignation of Registrar of the High Court, Tamara Gibson-Marks.

“We are still waiting on the Director of Audit’s report,” Commissioner of Police Michael Charles told I-Witness News on Thursday, adding that he had no indication when the report will be completed.

“We can’t do anything until we see the report. If there is anything, the police will have to act; but as it stand now, we are waiting,” Charles further told I-Wetness News.

Attorney General Judith Jones-Moargan demanded Marks’ resignation on May 21 after a meeting, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has said.

Gonsalves further said that the offices of the Director of Audit and the Commissioner of Police have been notified, and other state agencies may be become involved.

A source told I-Witness News last week that state officials have found that some EC$300,000 from an account that Marks held in trust is unaccounted for.

Marks, who was born in St. Lucia and is married to former government senator, lawyer Ronald “Ronnie” Marks, left St. Vincent for St. Lucia the same say she resigned, a source in the travel industry has told I-Witness News.

  1. So what’s new? Wasn’t there something in the news some years ago about the Attorney General?
    How could this lady leave the island? Why wasn’t her passport seized until the investigation?
    Charles should shut up because he has to wait until Ralph says jump. Then he will ask, “How high?” The police have no one involved in the investigation to see if charges are necessary. How would the police know what laws were violated if they are not involved? On the other hand they probably don’t have the resources and talent to get involve in financial issues. They would have to wait until Ralph says, “SIC UM”.

    Do we need Scotland yard for this case? By the time this investigation has concluded, the ULP would be out of power…the Attorney General gone and the alleged culprit in some other big post some where in the Region; and all is forgotten.

    Now one has to imagine that when the Attorney General demanded the Registrar’s resignation, she must have had sufficient information at hand to conclude that this woman has done something wrong, right?…why else would you ask for someone’s resignation? It then begs the question, why didn’t the police arrest this woman? Did the Attorney General and the Police colluded to buy time for one of their own to get out the country, by concocting this smoke screen of an “investigation?” Ah mean to say if you are in charged of a certain amount of money and that money is missing, you fu**ing responsible, case close.,,,ok ok, don’t kill me now…I know, she is innocent until proven guilty.

    The police put out a warrant for the arrest of the guy Sandy in connection with the bank robbery,he was arrested several times during the course of the investigation, on sketchy information if I may add…and you want to tell me, this woman, who was asked to resigned under suspicious circumstances, was never taken into custody for questioning? Really? By the way, in the Sandy case, didn’t the police indicated that they can arrest someone up to 72 hrs without charging them? Mm…Mother Priam used to say, wey good fuh the goose, good for the gander…the police and the Attorney General need two bulwood, if you ask me…

    It seem as though, people in the Civil Service don’t get lock up for acts of corruption…but if you say, “I like Arnihm Eustace”, you get your arse fired!…lawd put ah hand.

    Its just a smoke srcreen to hide the $53 million missing and unacounted for from the government coffers. The auditor general has proven that to us. And that is from the PM’s very own ministry, own the government, own the party, steal what you like, when you like.

    A storm in a teacup. She is Ronnie Marks’ wife for Christ sake. That makes her a ULP Untouchable.

    “We can’t do anything until we see the report.” Jesus H Christ, a report without her, is like a Coroner’s Inquest without the Venezuelans, which then would be grounds for Ronnie to argue if the report is not to taste. And if it comes to argument, well, it could take as long as the coroner’s inquest is taking. As long as, but not longer because the coroner’s inquest ain’t coming.

    Remember Dexter Chance who was illegally extradited by this regime to Tortolla on flimsy evidence of drug dealing and was confined for almost five years before his case was thrown out?

    At the very least, these woman’s travel documents should have been seized so that she could not flee prosecution. And don’t hold your breath waiting for her to be extradited from wherever she has fled.

    More evidence that in our primitive little society, it is who you are, not what you have done that determines how you are treated by the governing regime.

  6. Hypocrisy at its best, if one does wrong how would you feel penalizing someone who done wrong too. that is all!
    3 days news and it rolls over. way too much corruption in this little island, but God is not asleep.

  7. Marlon Mills says:

    The Registrar is directly responsible to the Attorney General, therefore, according to procedure under such circumstances, responsibility lies with the AG to refer the matter to the Director of Public Prosecution. The DPP would then send an order to the police to bring her in for questioning.

    I have a question: did the AG advise this young lady to leave the state as soon as possible?

  8. Hahaha. Who is this idiot guy Brian? What innocent are you talking about, she was fired, this is not some little position you are talking about here? you do not dismiss someone from her post without a proper reason, and then she ran, further[suggesting] … guilt. What innocent are you talking about? The woman should be in handcuffs but you are here defending nonsense.

    It’s people like you Brian, why SVG would not recover for at least 20 years, from all the debts we are in, [if] one person can steal such a large sum, just imagine the amount yet to be uncovered when the government change. Vincentians like yourself are the reason why the Comrade is acting like he is now. Hahah I can laugh my belly full with the kinds of idiots that live in SVG. The guy as for guilt? She wasn’t even detained let alone put on trial, Vincentians really are stupid eh? But I know there will be many going to jail for all the money stolen. OWN THE JAIL.
