British Virgin Islands says its premier has been arrested in Miami

(Reuters) – The premier of the British Virgin Islands has been arrested in Miami for money laundering and conspiracy to import a controlled substance, the government of the Caribbean territory said in a statement on Thursday.

Andrew Fahie was arrested as part of an operation led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), according to a statement by British Virgin Islands governor John Rankin.

“I realise this will be shocking news for people in the Territory,” Rankin said. “And I would call for calm at this time.”

The DEA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
