I have seen the recent article that has been circulating in relation to my personal life.
This is a private matter that occurred 12 years ago and I am sorry that the public of the Cayman Islands have had to read this story that a newspaper ran about eight years ago.
I have made no attempt to hide the fact that I have been married before.
I am fortunate to have a loving and supportive wife and daughter who have recently arrived on the island. They along with me are very pleased to be here.
This is not the first time that this story has been run to sensationalise this private matter and it has caused considerable upset to my two daughters and ex-wife who remain in Scotland.
I have already spoken to them and I am in regular contact with them.
I am here to do a job as Commissioner of Police and I intend to do it to the best of my ability.
This sensationalism will not detract from my determination to serve the people of the Cayman Islands.
Stuart Kernoha,Commissioner of Police
Editor’s note: The Daily Record.co.uk website dated1 November was sent to several people in the Cayman Islands Tuesday with a story concerning Mr. Kernohan’s personal life. The Caymanian Compass did not report on the story because it has no bearing on the job he has been hired to do here in the Cayman Islands.
