Fmr. British High Commissioner Exonerated
Former British High Commissioner to Belize John Yapp left Belize under the suggestion of scandal, but now he has been exonerated. No one could say for sure why the career diplomat was suddenly sent home from his post in Belize, but in July of last year, the British newspaper, The Mail, on Sunday reported that it was because he had behaved inappropriately at a social event at which several high profile Belizean women were in attendance.
Well, now The Mail says it got it wrong. The paper reports that that an official inquiry has cleared Yapp of the allegations. The paper has paid him damages and legal costs. And though the allegations had it that Yapp had behaved inappropriately towards the Prime Minister’s wife, Kim Barrow, the diplomat is known to be a friend of the PM and his wife, and was a noted guest at his wedding. http://www.7newsbelize.com/sstory.php?nid=13786
