July 18, 2009

This suppressed report, dated July 18, 2009, lays at the center of UK plans to take control of the Turks & Caicos Islands—a Caribbean tourist and tax haven.

Following corruption allegations made against the Islands' political elite, the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) commissioned Sir Robin Auld last year to run the Turks & Caicos Islands Commission of Inquiry.

After the release of an interim report in March, 2009, the Commission and the Island's Governor were sued to prevent the release of parts of the final report.

On July 18, 2009, the Commission briefly released on its website[1] what it called its Redacted Final Report. According to the Commission's July 18, 2009 press release, the—

Governor's redaction results from the direction of the Hon Chief Justice Gordon Ward in the current litigation between Mario Hoffmann and Cem Kinay against the Governor and me (and an assurance given by the Hon Attorney General in proceedings brought by Jak Civre).

Hours later, the entire 266 page redacted report was removed from the Commission's web site.

The attached file presents the full report with the removed text restored.
