US Embassy will remain neutral in Jamaica’s internal corruption discourse, says Tapia

Donald Tapia, the United States (US) ambassador to Jamaica, says the US will remain neutral in the wake of an avalanche of alleged government corruption swirling in the public space.

The often-outspoken US envoy used a speech to the Rotary Club of Kingston at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel recently to hammer home his point and reiterated the embassy’s stance about the revoked visas for government minister Daryl Vaz and his wife Ann Marie Vaz, as well as Member of Parliament for East Kingston Port Royal, Phillip Paulwell.

“We are non-political and will remain non-political. We will do nothing that can hurt either party. We work with both parties, and I have met with both parties and I want to say you have a good system here, and today, there is no corruption or extradition of any minister within this Government,” Tapia said.
