By BBN Staff: At a press conference in Belize City this morning, COLA’s President Geovanni Brackett held back no blows.
He slammed the Prime Minister for negotiating the future of BTL with Michael Ashcroft somewhere in a hotel room in Miami.
“Because of this dictator the country has been driven to the bricks of bankruptcy,” Brackett said, blaming the government for the nation’s economic crisis and potential devaluation of the Belize Dollar.
He also slammed Cabinet Ministers, who during their time in office became millionaires while the Belizean masses remained poor.
According to Brackett, the Government of Belize has the finances to immediately give teachers their 3 percent salary adjustment, however, the government has its priorities flawed.
Brackett further claimed that GoB can pay teachers if it offered to pay for a new vehicle for Minister Patrick Faber, paid salaries to Candelaria Saldivar for over a year even though she didn’t work and squandered PetroCaribe finances.
“We are not here for business as usual, business is closed for UDP corruption,” he said.
He closed by telling Prime Minister Dean Barrow, “Yuh name stink outta road.”
