Michael-Peyrefitte0005This morning Hon. Michael Peyrefitte was sworn-in as Attorney General before the Governor General of Belize, H.E. Sir Colville Young at the Belize House in Belmopan.


The former Speaker of the House of Representatives succeeds Senator Hon.

The new Attorney General was accompanied this morning by family, friends, Ministers of Government, the Cabinet Secretary and His Worship the Mayor of Belize City.
