Yvonne Clarke reinstated as Miss Universe rep

Yvonne Clarke will get the opportunity to fulfil her dream of participating in the Miss Universe competition. 

A release this afternoon from the local Miss Universe committee said a decision has been made to reinstate the 28-year-old.

The release did not state why the decision to disqualify Clarke was reversed but said all issues have been settled. 

Clarke was this afternoon said to be in a meeting with a legal team comprising former students of her alma mater Naparima Girls' High School who decided to take up her legal challenge pro bono.

On Wednesday, Attorney Rondell Donawa issued a pre-action protocol letter demanding a copy of the contract Clarke was said to have breached.

The Miss Universe competition will take place on November 26 in Las Vegas.
