Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: People’s United Party (PUP) deputy leader, Julius Espat who spoke about Ivan Ramos receiving PetroCaribe monies, spoke again yesterday about taking the Government of Belize to court on the grounds that it is using these PetroCaribe Funds for the “wrong” reasons.
In an interview with another media house, Espat expressed how he felt about the use of PetroCaribe and this is what he said: “It’s illegal what they are doing; utilizing public funds for political use and we are looking into that right now to see if we can also challenge that. It is illegal to use public funds for political use. Clear.”
Espat, with the support of his party, also plans to take a stand against the Mother’s Day Program and says that UDP officials who hold no official post in government have been allowed to access the PetroCaribe Funds for Cheer programs, which is “plain wrong”.
Espat’s lawsuit asks the court to stop the Government from spending any more money out of the PetroCaribe Fund.
