The new Grenada government said it has been trying to ascertain the citizenship status of opposition leader Dr. Keith Mitchell.



The government said it has evidence that Dr. Mitchell is a US citizen.



However, the opposition leader has denied the claims.



The Attorney General’s office said it has correspondence from the US Justice Department confirming that Dr. Mitchell is a US citizen.



According to the government, the document shows that Dr. Mitchell attained American citizenship in January 1984.



Dr. Mitchell is insisting that he no longer holds US citizenship.
