Correction: Since the initial publication of this article, I-Witness News was informed that while G777, a vehicle assigned to the office of the Prime Minister, was at the airport when Former Registrar Tamara Gibson-Marks arrived, it was there to receive relatives of Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves’ family, and not Gibson-Marks, as earlier reported.
We believe that our source acted in good faith but got parts of the information incorrect. We sincerely apologise for any distress that the error has caused.
See below an edited version of our initial report:
Former Registrar of the High a Court Tamara Gibson-Marks returned to St. Vincent around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, three months after she left the country on the heels of her sudden resignation at the request of Attorney-General Judith Jones-Morgan.
Gibson-Marks left St. Vincent for St. Lucia on May 21, about 90 minutes after ones-Morgan demanded her resignation during a 30 minute meeting.
The Director of Audit, Commission of Police, and Director of Public Persecutions are involved in an investigation of Gibson-Marks’ conduct as Registrar.
The investigation has found that thousands of dollars from an account that she held in trust is unaccounted for, sources in the know have said.
A source told I-Witness News on Wednesday that Gibson-Marks was wearing a hat and sunglasses when she arrived at the E.T. Joshua Airport.
The source said that a lawyer met Gibson-Marks at the airport. A vehicle known to belong to one of the former registrar’s close relatives left the airport shortly after her arrival.
The court is expected to hear in early September an application by the Attorney General for Gibson-Marks to show cause why she should not be disbarred from practicing law in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The St. Lucia born Gibson-Marks is wife of former Unity Labour Party senator, lawyer Ronald “Ronnie” Marks.
