LONDON, England – Last evening, 12 June, I was invited to the House of Lords to meet with , Minister of State for the Overseas Territories.

There the minister formally advised me that His Excellency the Governor, Mr. , has been temporarily withdrawn from his post as Governor of the Cayman Islands to allow the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to investigate a number of complaints against him.

He further advised that Mr. Choudhury is currently in the UK and that the investigation is likely to last 4 – 6 weeks.
