Caught using illegal Belizean diplomatic plates

Andy Wigmore, a high profile political operative, and businessman of the United Kingdom was reportedly caught using illegal Belizean diplomatic plates and an expired diplomatic ID card. Wigmore was detained by police two weeks ago after they suspected that he was driving without a license. He is also the holder of a Belizean Nationality certificate and had once held a diplomatic post for Belize until it was revoked last year. The police officer pulled over Wigmore immediately seized the diplomatic plates and ID card. Reports from the United Kingdom are that Wigmore kept up the pretense, angering the Belizean High Commission in London who asked the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to put a stop to it. it is a criminal offense to impersonate a diplomat, but the online news article reports that Wigmore insisted that he won’t be prosecuted. He said that he was embarrassed by the incident and was unaware that the diplomatic plates had been decommissioned. Wigmore is the Chief Communications Officer for the Leave.EU Campaign, an organization that campaigned for Brexit in the June 2016. Brexit is the term given for the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
