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.

Peyrefitte served in the capacity of Speaker of the House of Representatives since his election in 2012 and taking over his position is Laura Longsworth.


Of note is that in October 2016, Peyrefitte had filed a lawsuit against the then Attorney General Vanessa Retreage and the Auditor General Dorothy Bradley. 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.
