British Virgin Islands concern: UK govt

The United Kingdom is very concerned about governance in the British Virgin Islands, a British Overseas Territory, foreign minister Dominic Raab says, adding that there is unease about its susceptibility to organised crime.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is located in the Caribbean to the east of Puerto Rico.

A remnant of British empire, the territory operates a parliamentary democracy and is self-governing.

A governor appointed by Queen Elizabeth has oversight of external affairs, defence, internal security, administration of the courts, the public service, elections and disaster preparedness.

“The UK is extremely concerned about the state of good governance in the British Virgin Islands,” Raab said in a written statement to parliament.
