Monday, December 22, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) and Ministry of Tourism and Culture continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the sudden fall of Acting Director of Marketing Clive Myers.
Myers abruptly resigned last week, only a few days after taking over the post from the Alyssa Carnegie.
A package was delivered to certain media houses containing information stating that Myers’ educational credentials were falsified.
On Saturday Director of Tourism Tracey Taegar-Panton stated that as far as they were aware, there was no reason to think that anything in Myers’ personnel file was falsified, but she acknowledged that more work needs to be done moving forward in improving the backgrounds checks done by the Board.
She also added that Myers’ performance while with the Ministry before moving to the BTB was exceptional and could not be faulted.
Taegar-Panton also confirmed the indefinite suspension and subsequent resignation of Media and Public Relations Manager Andrea Polanco in connection with the ongoing investigation, while two others also face suspension as the investigation continues.
