BNTU rejects Integrity Commission proposal to give elected officials free pass

Posted: Tuesday, May 16, 2017. 4:53 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) issued a press release today informing that it rejects the proposal of the Integrity Commission to waive the submission by elected persons of their records for the past five years and only to accept submissions for the past year.

The BNTU says that it reiterates that of their eight demands to the government last September, it did not request the implementation of a “rubber stamp” commission, but one that would be transparent, accountable, credible and of integrity.

“When our common citizens have arrears for any of their obligations; be it income tax, Social Security, Business tax etc. they are not granted waivers, instead-penalties are imposed on them. We say our Elected officials, should be treated in like manner. They are NOT ABOVE THE LAW,” the union stressed.

The statement ends, “Solidarity forever… Stand up for Belize!”
