“It is with regret that I learnt that the Ambassador had succumbed to the injuries sustained in the incident on Sunday night which claimed 58 other victims. Ambassador Edmund succumbed to his injuries yesterday following the shooting incident.” Lisa said of the St. Lucian Ambassador
However, in a subsequent statement, Foreign Affairs Minister Senator Kamina Johnson Smith refuted this assertion and said Ambassador Edmunds is alive and well.
“That release was inadvertently sent out by someone in my office. It was later rescinded. I actually had a very good conversation with (His Excellency) Edmunds… and certainly I expressed regret at the information that was released from my office,” Hanna said.
