Special Select Committee’s first meeting on Wednesday

Posted: Saturday, October 8, 2016. 9:15 a.m. CST.

By BBN Staff:A special communique was sent out yesterday whereby the Clerk of the National assembly announced that the Senate Select Committee established last Friday will meet on Wednesday morning.

The senators that will participate are: Dr. Carla Barnett and Aldo Salazar, government’s representatives; Church Senator Ashley Rocke, Union Senator Elena Smith, and Business Senator Mark Lizarraga. The Chamber is yet to decide whether it will take part as they do not agree to the composition.

The representative from the opposition has not yet been named, but reports are that the Opposition too has not decided whether it will take part.

President of the Senate Lee Mark Chang has called this sudden meeting for the purpose of naming a chairperson and addressing other issues related to the work of the Committee.

    In my view, Senator The Honorable Reverend Ashley Rocke should not be on the committee. He is the person that got us into this mess in the first place. He should be seen a UDP senator not an independent. The Church should pressure him to stand down as a Senator and appoint a better representative.
    The Chamber has a key role to play here to make sure this enquiry is effective enough to restore international faith in Belize’s ability to control corruption. I wish them wisdom and the best of luck.
