By BBN Staff: In response to the Prime minister’s press conference held yesterday, the PUP issued a statement expressing the party’s support for setting up a Senate Select committee on the Immigration and Nationalization scandal.
The PUP says that what the Auditor General’s report has uncovered not only warrants a Senate investigation but also a criminal investigation by the police department to commence immediately.
According to the party, the Prime Minister’s apology came too little too late and only after outrage from Belizeans.
“The reality is that the Prime Minister is making a half-hearted attempt to stop the public hemorrhaging over the scathing Auditor General audits, which implicates 13 present and former cabinet ministers. Also, there is nothing to suggest to us that the official cover up will discontinue.”
It goes on to say: “We in the PUP find it offensive that Senator Godwin Hulse, the substantive Minister of Immigration, refuses to recuse himself from the vote on whether the Senate should appoint a select committee on the matter.”
