Chang denies allegations in relation to Wong Hong Kim case; Says he only served as translator

By BBN Staff: The first case that broke and opened the can of worms into the corruption in the Belize Immigration Department was the famous Wong Hong Kim case.

Citizen Kim was a naturalized Belizean who held a Belizean passport without ever setting foot on land in Belize.

So how did he obtained the passport?

Well that is where Eric Chang comes in.

Chang in his statements at the Senate Special Select Committee today acknowledged that he attempted to visit Wong Hong Kim in prison in South Korea.

However, when asked by Chairman of the Senate Select Committee, Aldo Salazar, Chang denied trying to get visas for Wong Hong Kim and other friends in South Korea.

Chang says that he was asked by a friend to visit Kim and to serve only as a translator.

Salazar read out statements made by the Ambassador of Belize to Taiwan in which Chang said that he would call a Minister to facilitate visas for his friends.

That Minister, Elvin Penner who was at the time the Minister responsible for Immigration was removed from the Immigration portfolio but still served as the Area representative for Cayo Northeast.
