Marcel Fahie: Special Assistants 9

Fabian M Fahie, MA, BSc.

Marcel, as he is universally known, is a heavyweight in the ANA, one of the founding parties of the present government, the United Front. He was for many years a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance until his recent retirement from the public service. He served as chairman of the Social Security Board and many other government boards. On the private side he was a promoter and director of the National Bank of Anguilla from its inception in 1985. He is also involved in a number of other commercial companies.

After his retirement from the public service, he continued serving the government and party in a new role of Special Assistant. It is not clear exactly what he is assisting about, but it seems to have something to do with the Flag Luxury Properties and St Regis Resort project. He is said to have been instrumental in nurturing this project to success.


  1. The whole problem with Marcel being a Special Adviser to the Minister of Finance, is that he is paid a salary by Flag. How in God's name can he advise the Minister when his salary is being paid by the individuals that the Ministry is supposed to be regulating? If this is not a conflict of interest, I do not know what is!

  2. If this comment above is not true, then an apology is due to Marcel. If it is true, then the Chief Minister ought to fire him immediately. Can someone advise what the true position is?

  3. At least Fritz went off on his own. He is not maskerading as any government adviser.

  4. Why would the Chief Minister fire Marcel. He agreed for him to be special assistant and at the same time liason officer for Flag and the government. It is Osborne who set it up.
