The sentencing of Oleanvine Maynard, former Managing Director of the BVI Ports Authority has been pushed back once again despite a previous announcement that prosecutors would not be granting any further extensions.

The reasons for the additional delay has not been provided. However, Maynard’s sentencing hearing is now reset for June 20th, 2024.

Maynard, confessed to being involved in a drug trafficking conspiracy led by former Premier Andrew Fahie, and has maintained her guilty plea since her arrest.

Maynard was the main witness in the prosecution’s case against Former BVI Premier Andrew Fahie, in their drug and money laundering conspiracy to smuggle thousands of kilos of cocaine through the BVI.

Maynard’s son, Kadeem Maynard, was sentenced on November 20, 2023, to serve 57 months in prison after he too pleaded guilty conspiracy to import cocaine.

Meanwhile, Fahie’s sentencing was also postponed from April 29 to June 25 and recently his attorney requested an additional delay in his sentencing, currently scheduled for June 25. His attorney, Theresa Van Vliet, filed a motion citing a scheduling conflict as the reason for the postponement, proposing a new date of August 5, 2024.

Fahie was arrested in April 2022 and found guilty in February 2024 on multiple charges, including conspiracy to import cocaine and money laundering. She stated that both the prosecution and Fahie’s co-counsel are available for the proposed new sentencing date in August.

The trail has garnered global attention as all continue to await the sentencing of both Fahie and Maynard. Both Fahie and Maynard will stand before Judge Kathleen Williams for sentencing.
