P.M. defends Foreign Minister over media comment


Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington

Thursday, August 20th 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington was silent for all of today’s Prime Ministerial Press Conference, and that is for a reason. The Minister, speaking in the immediate aftermath of Sunday’s events to Amandala, insisted that formal confirmation from the OAS was needed and that the various media reports, either Belizean or Guatemalan, were not sufficient for him to act then. Now that the Government has acted, where does he stand now? The Prime Minister reminded that he, and he alone, speaks for Belize last on any issue, and the turn of events now vindicates the free press.

P.M. Barrow also, naturally, laughed off any suggestion of lack of confidence in Minister Elrington’s handling of affairs.
