Kelly to lose honorary consul status

27 Nov, 2012

Kelley will lose her Honorary Consul status after a New York businessman accused her of trying to use the title to solicit business, Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun told the semi-official South Korean news agency Yonhap:

It’s not suitable to the status of honorary consul that (she) sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence. It’s also inappropriate as honorary consul.
