Port-of-Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee has issued an apology to all women and the entire country, following statements that seemed to link the death of a Japanese masquerader to a culture of lewdness but insists that his comments were taken out of context.
The apology came in the form of a statement from the Mayor's office:
Port-of-Spain Mayor, Raymond Tim Kee is defending the use of the Nelson Mandela Park (previously known as the King George V Park), for parking in Saturday's 'Fete With the Saints' all-inclusive fete.
