The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) notes with disappointment the statement issued today by the Accused Myron Walwyn. The statement, among other things, seeks to adversely influence the potential array of jurors who will eventually decide his fate and the fate of other persons similarly charged. Such rhetoric only serves to undermine the course of justice in the Territory.
Contrary to Mr. Walwyn’s assertions, an incomplete investigative case file was submitted in 2020, and the same was quickly returned to the RVIPF to conduct further investigations. However, the case files were never completed by the RVIPF at that stage. The decision was made to bring in an independent team of financial investigators from the United Kingdom to review the investigation, and that review commenced in early 2021. The review was done to ensure that the investigation was completed fairly, transparently and to standard.
The Office of the DPP has always operated in accordance to the law, and strongly refutes the erroneous and unfounded statements that otherwise has been done.
