By BBN Staff: People’s United Party Leader, John Briceño, is claiming that the Government of Belize manipulated the Integrity Commission, to allow for minister’s of government to get away without disclosing their financial statements.

Briceño told the media that the government side of the Commission, repeatedly denied requests from Mrs. Balderamos-Mahler, to accommodate her attendance. Briceño said that she had requested a date change and a time change to all for her attendance, but both were denied, because GOB wanted the commission to limit the financial filings to one year, instead of five years.

Briceño said that the government intentionally kept her out of the meeting, because she could have offered a legal opinion on why the commission has the authority to request financials for the last five years, but the government did not want that information shared.

The Commission had originally requested that ministers submit financial information for five years, but later rescinded the decision and asked for only 2016, having been given legal advice that they cannot request records from an era where the commission was not operating.

Briceño maintains that the Prime Minister has a moral obligation in the face of that legal advice, to still press for the ministers to file for more than five years, because he campaigned and was elected on an anti-corruption platform.
