His Excellency, Guy Sevrin, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Of The Kingdom of Belgium, who demitted office in July as His Country’s Ambassador To Jamaica, Caricom and Trinidad and Tobago, has been appointed his Country’s Ambassador to the Country of Niger. The Ambassador who left Jamaica, after a number of official farewell functions in his honour hosted by his Diplomatic colleagues, members of Government and leading socialites, was regarded as a Diplomatic gem, and so his departure, whilst expected left a social void in the nation’s capital, that is still to be filled.
