Cayman’s Coat of Arms party is over and leaders got down to business in the UK.
Yesterday (14 May) they held talks with UK officials like Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
Today (15 May) Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin, Opposition Leader Hon. Ezzard Miller and Bodden Town West MLA Chris Saunders, among others, met with Overseas Territories Minister Lord Ahmad where they raised their concerns on the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering amendment.
MLA Saunders said he was pleased with the discussions.
“I am happy I attended the meeting because both Premier (Hon. Alden) McLaughlin and Opposition Leader Ezzard Miller represented us well by asking the right questions and raising the right issues. At the end of the meeting I told Lord Ahmad it is unfortunate the principles that made Britain great are being abandoned. It is clear that the effects of Brexit has created a feeling of uncertainty in Britain and the feeling on the ground is that it is not what people expected in terms of duration and some of the issues raised. We cannot allow this uncertainty into our islands,” said Mr. Saunders.
The Opposition team is expected to return to Cayman tomorrow (16 May.) Government officials will continue their discussions before their return later this week.
