British High Commissioner recalled to London

Story PictureAnd in unrelated news from the foreign affairs front, there are startling reports coming out of Belmopan tonight which indicate that the top British diplomat’s mission to Belize has come to an abrupt end. According to our sources, British High Commissioner, John Yapp, who arrived in Belize last August on a three year assignment has been recalled to London. While there is no official explanation for the move, we are told that Yapp’s premature departure is due to what is being vaguely described as “behaviour not consistent with his official status as a diplomat”. In the interim, second in command David Spires will act as High Commissioner until the British Government appoints a new head of mission. Spires confirmed to News Five this evening that Yapp will indeed not be returning to post but did not elaborate on the reasons why.
