2 weeks ago, well-known attorney and football aficionado, Lionel Welch passed away in Los Angeles after a tough battle with prostate cancer.

Welch had a long career as an attorney, and his peers in the legal community gave him a send-off today. At a special sitting of the Supreme Court, majority of the members of the bench and bar noted his achievements and held a small remembrance ceremony in his honour. Attorney General Wilfred Elrington, was good friend of Welch's and he told us today about the ceremony:

Welch was a member of the Member of the FFB Disciplinary Committee, the integrity committee for football and Legal adviser to the Football Federation of Belize.
