Trinidad Express / REINSTATED!
Yvonne Clarke will once again represent this country at the November 26 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The Miss Universe T&T Committee confirmed via a media release today that it has “settled all issues concerning 28 year old Ms Yvonne Clarke” and has taken a decision to reinstate her.
“We truly wish Miss Clarke all the best in her journey and we do hope and pray that she is able to bring home the crown,” the release said.
“We also wish to thank the public at large and the media for their support in this matter,” it added.
Clarke was stripped of the title on Tuesday, following comments on a television station that she sought the help of soca artiste Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez in getting her prepared for the international competition on November 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Douglas contended that Clarke breached her contractual agreement with the franchise, which stated that a delegate could not ill-speak or “make the franchise look bad”.
