Trial for Ex VI Premier Andrew A. Fahie set for January 9, 2023

Former Premier of the [British] Virgin Islands Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) and his co-accused are set to appear in a Miami, Florida Court on January 9, 2023, for the start of their trial.

Court documents, which were filed on November 17, 2022, showed the case is expected to be heard during the two-week trial calendar that begins on January 9, 2023.

The case will be on the docket for each successive trial calendar until it is resolved.

Fahie, former Managing Director of the BVI Ports Authority Oleanvine Pickering-Maynard and her son Kadeem S. Maynard are accused of several crimes including money laundering, conspiracy to import drugs into the United States via the Virgin Islands and Interstate and Foreign Travel in Aid of Racketeering.

Fahie is out on US $1,000,000 bail but is restricted from leaving the US.

Kadeem S. Maynard, left, and his mother, former BVI Ports Authority Managing Director Oleanvine Pickering-Maynard are also scheduled to appear in court for the start of their trial on January 9, 2023.

Trial delay request

The defense attorney representing Mr Fahie had asked a federal judge to delay his July 18, 2022, trial date.

Fahie’s attorney, Theresa Van Vliet, asked that the court rescheduled the trial no sooner than January 16, 2023, to give the defense more time to prepare, and to resolve various issues.

Fahie had waived his rights under the Speedy Trial Act, and prosecutors did not object to the delay, according to the motion filed Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
