UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson calls for Cayman to remain with Britain for 60 years, if not more.
This even as Cayman and Britain disagree over the controversial Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill amendment seeking to force public beneficial ownership registries here by 2020.
Mr. Johnson was a featured speaker at Cayman’s diamond jubilee Coat of Arms celebrations in London on Monday (14 May.)
He said the inclusion of the British lion supporting Cayman’s crest is a demonstration of the strength of the ties between Cayman and the UK.
“The Cayman Islands is, has been, will be part of the United Kingdom family. So here’s to another 60 glorious years, if not more, of that fantastic crest,” Mr. Johnson said.
Speaking later at same event Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin said Cayman’s independence is inevitable.
