It is with much sadness that I recall the fact that Mr. Elton Georges, CMG, OBE was the first Complaints Commissioner (Ombudsman) of the Virgin Islands, having single-handedly set up the office in February 2009 .
Last evening, I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Elton Georges, CMG, OBE, a man of great strength, courage and conviction who I have had the pleasure of knowing for many decades as he dedicated his entire life to Public Service.
Good morning, Public Officers. Please stop immediately and take a minute of reflective silence on the passing of Mr. Elton M. Georges CMG, OBE. On behalf of our Public Service Family, we extend our deepest sympathy, love, comfort and prayers to his immediate and extended family.
I wanted to update you on the independent investigation undertaken by the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force into the actions taken by officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Immediate Response Team during the apprehension of escaped prisoner Santo Yamarco Hernandez in early December.
Madam Speaker, I beg to move that the Bill shortly entitled , the Appropriation Act 2018, be read a second time and in so doing I crave the customary indulgence of this Honourable House to extend its normal courtesies in permitting me to deliver this year’s Budget Address.
