lisa-hanna-photo-4.jpgOpposition Spokesman on Foreign Affairs Lisa Hanna has apologised for the blunder which resulted in her wrongly expressing condolences for the death of St Lucia's Ambassador to the Organisation of American States, Anton Edmunds.

Hanna had issued a release yesterday expressing regret at the unfortunate demise of the St Lucian diplomat, whom she claimed, was a victim of the Las Vegas mass shooting on Sunday.

However, it was later revealed that the information was false.

This prompted Minister of Foreign Affairs, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, to issue a release urging Hanna to exercise restraint and sensitivity when dealing with diplomatic issues.

Hanna, who was recently appointed the spokesman on foreign affairs, said the release with unverified information was inadvertently sent from her office.
