December 2004, Jamaica, Jamaica Gleaner News
: 31-year-old Camillo Gonsalves is a 'Jamerican', a former newspaper journalist and attorney qualified to practice in the United States and soon to be qualified to practice in Jamaica.
Apart from hopping between the US, Jamaica and St Vincent, where his father is from, he uses precious spare time to run a website and magazine dedicated to dancehall music. Gonsalves, known outside of the courtroom as Milo, is the publisher of Reggaematic, a glossy dossier of the fast-paced happenings inside the world of dancehall music.
From October 2004 to April 2005, [aged 32 to 33 yrs] Camillo worked at a law firm called Dunn Cox in Kingston Jamaica, where he assisted with legal research and the drafting of pleadings before the Resident Magistrates Court and Supreme Court. Ref: UN Press release
In 2005 A sudden transformation, from humble junior attorney in Jamaica to a senior appointment in the Saint and the Grenadines Government, where his father Ralph Gonsalves is Prime Minister. A cry of nepotism rang through the island and flooded the internet.
August 2005, Camillo [aged 34 yrs] was appointed senior crown counsel in the Attorney General’s Chambers. Ref: UN Press release [This was information he submitted to the UN when taking the appointment of ambassador, the dates don't match, how could he have such a job when he was not called to the Bar until October 2005? This means that he had only been an attorney for four years prior to this appointment]
October 2005, Camillo 20 Oct 05 admitted to the local bar in SVG at the High Court in Kingstown, where his father said he thought he would make a fine lawyer. [At least his father did not describe him as a fine lawyer. He said “he would make a fine lawyer” somewhat different to being one.]
According to Wikipedia
, he subsequently worked as the senior crown counsel for the government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, before being appointed to diplomatic postings "in various capacities in Cuba, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Korea, Libya and throughout the CARICOM region". [This Wikipedia page describes him as being appointed to all these places as diplomatic postings. I don't think so; he may have visited there with his father but diplomatic postings, that's a little bit rich. This looks very much like history being created by the pen.]
2007, August 4: Louis Straker confirmed that “the eldest son of Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves is to become the island's next Ambassador to the United Nations”-- Foreign Affairs Minister Sir Louis Straker.

Camillo Gonsalves I have just looked at the biography you gave the UN, there seems to be some discrepancies to the facts, perhaps you can look at what I wrote and give us some corrections. We need to know what is correct, what I wrote, what you wrote, or what you wrote for the UN.
We await your corrections, subtractions and additions.
By the way it would be nice if you could show us the document whereby you opted out of US citizenship. We need to see the actual date.
I am informed but have not confirmed such that, as US citizen, you had no diplomatic immunity in the US, is that why you could do nothing about the New York diplomatic blunder you made with the policeman?
Please spare us the spiel about how you equate yourself to President Obama and the birthing thing that you keep throwing up, just let’s sort this out so as the people know, as they have a right to know. Stop doing the hokey-pokey, it’s starting to make us all feel dizzy.
