The ongoing investigation into the Elmore Stoutt High School Perimeter Wall Project has so far resulted in one male being slapped with three charges.
He is 55-year-old Kelvin Thomas of Chalwell Estate, Tortola who is charged with obtaining property by deception, making a false statement to a public officer, and possession of the proceeds of criminal conduct.
The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) confirmed the charges, stating that Thomas was released on bail.
“Mr. Thomas was granted Police Bail to appear at the Magistrates’ Court on a later date. Other persons were interviewed by police and were released pending further investigation,” the RVIPF stated.
The police added, “The RVIPF believes that all suspects, accused, victims, and witnesses have a right to due process and a right to a fair trial. Therefore, the Force will neither issue any further comments on this matter at this time nor entertain queries on this ongoing investigation.”
