Ambassador Rahming meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry - BP's Choice for US NEXT PRESIDENT!

Statement By
Dr. Elliston Rahming
Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the Organization of American States

July 15, 2013

It has come to my attention that Mr. Brent Symonette made certain statements about me in Cable 12’s newscast of July 12, 2013, relative to my appointment as Ambassador to the United States.

I have sought legal advice relative to Mr. Symonette’s utterances and my lawyers both in the United States and The Bahamas have concluded that Mr. Symonette and Cable 12 have defamed me. I have therefore instructed my attorneys to commence legal proceedings against Mr. Symonette and Cable 12 and The Nassau Guardian for defamation of character.

The man whose wealth grew by $60 million in just a few years was Chief COOKIE MONSTER ABLE ASSISTANT before he resigned to avoid an investigation.

For the record, my non-confirmation (to date) as Ambassador to the United States has absolutely nothing to do with my character or any wrong doing on my part in The Bahamas, the United States or anywhere else in the world. I am 59 years-old and I have never been questioned by anyone or accused by anyone or charged by anyone or accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever. Not once in The Bahamas. Not once in the United States. Not once anywhere in the world. I challenge anyone anywhere to show otherwise. I have guarded my character and reputation scrupulously and the moment is now when I say enough is enough.

I am in the United States on a diplomatic visa issued to me in April 2013, in my capacity as Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the Organization of American States proudly representing my country along with 34 other ambassadors from Western Hemispheric Nations that comprise the Organization of American States.

We are grappling with weighty matters related to human rights, youth economic empowerment and development, peace and security, electoral reform, job creation, migration and poverty reduction throughout the hemisphere.

I am superbly qualified in every respect for the post I now hold and any other I may have the honour of assuming on behalf of the Bahamian people.
