'Originator of hate’ Cindy Rosan now claims slander; Files lawsuit

'Originator of hate’ Cindy Rosan now claims slander; Files lawsuit

Controversial and alleged hater of Virgin Islanders, Cindy Rosan is now being bitten by what she has allegedly started. For months, from early 2021, she has developed a reputation for slander and libel against residents found to be out of favour with her, claiming she is entitled to her own opinion.

Late last year, while on Tola Radio 100.5 FM, Rosan described the current Premier Dr the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) as a “fool” and she was “sorry I voted for him”.

She also stated last year that she would “work day and night to get Natalio out of office."

The same Cindy, who is said to be a hater of Virgin Islanders, had declared that the Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly (HoA), Hon Neville A. Smith (AL), must resign, when he brought his security contract with Government to the HoA to declare, in keeping with the constitution.

Cindy hates locals?

Ms Rosan has for over two years engaged in slander and libel against former Speaker Julian Willock, and earlier this year staged a small protest against him, claiming that he should pay a bill that was incurred in his official capacity.

However, her hypocrisy was clear when a similar situation occurred when Governor John J. Rankin, CMG hired an Attorney to represent him during the Commission of Inquiry. He asked that taxpayers pay the bill of over 45 thousand dollars.

She said publicly she supported taxpayers footing the United Kingdom-appointed Governor’s bill.

Ms Rosan has in the past lambasted and slandered respected women in the Territory, including Ms Patsy C. Lake and cultural icon Ms Eileene L. Parsons OBE. It is our understanding that Cindy has been banned from going to Ms Lake’s business at One Stop Mall.

Ms Rosan known for slander

The controversial Ms Rosan said earlier this year on Tola Radio that the former Premier, Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1), was a “thief”; however, he did not sue her but instead tried to employ her with his administration via a public relations contract.

On different social media platforms, Ms Rosan had said slanderous things about Mr Vance M. Lewis of Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park. He subsequently filed a lawsuit against her and, in court records obtained by our news centre, she has lost her case to Mr Lewis via a default judgement.

The court is now assessing damages to see what Ms Rosan will have to pay.

Rosan also took to her Facebook page a few months ago and slandered a prominent attorney, Michael Fay QC, accusing him of having his house used for an alleged drug deal. Mr Fay has taken legal action and the police had seized Ms Rosan’s phone as part of the investigation.

It is our understanding that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is now pursuing the matter against Ms Rosan.

Her usual rant?

A few weeks ago, Rosan attended a press conference hosted by Governor Rankin and once she returned from the press conference she had some outbursts on Tola Radio, calling the Governor a “racist” and saying “he must go”.

Ironically, Ms Rosan, who announced that she is seeking public office, is now in a legal and social media battle with Da International Morning Braff host Floyd Burnett aka ‘Heritage’, claiming slander. This is after she spent months slandering many residents and local businesses.

Many residents have said it’s the chicken coming home to roost and Rosan is starting to receive what, for years, she has displayed against residents in an effort to bully them and try to shape public opinion.

It remains unclear if Rosan will still be a candidate in the upcoming 2023 General elections.

She was fired from the BVI Tourist Board where her post was made redundant.

Our news centre will be following the case against Mr Burnett and the other numerous lawsuits filed against Ms Rosan by residents for slander and libel.
