Last month, William Amos was shocked at Adam’s outfit when he returned from a jog. He did not realize that his camera had been activated and that member of the Black Cubacos Sebastian Lemire had immortalized the scene.
The deputy’s picture was shared with the media, and Mr. Lemir, who was outraged that the film had provoked him, had to apologize in the House. However, he insisted that he did not share the photo with any journalist and did not know how it ended up in the media.
