GOVERNMENT OF SIERRA LEONE
PRESS RELEASE FROM EMBASSY IN BRUSSELS

The attention of Sierra Leoneís Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium and the European Community, Dr. Christian Sheka Kargbo has been drawn to local press reports of an alleged matrimonial brawl at his official residence in Brussels which has prompted the deployment of Belgian police at the said residence.

Such a report by the local press is not only totally untrue, preposterous and a figment of the writerís imagination, but a malicious propaganda and character assassination calculated to injure the good reputation of the Ambassador and the Sierra Leone mission in Brussels.

The Ambassador wishes to inform the general public that at no time did the Belgian authorities have cause to deploy the police at his residence for any reason whatsoever.

If the allegation by the local press is anything worth its salt, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Freetown would have been the most appropriate channel to be informed rather than the local press.
