By BBN Staff: The Public Service Union has condemned the Government of Belize’s approval of a $40,000 loan write of for Joshua Perdomo, son of the Cabinet Secretary Carlos Perdomo.
The PSU issued a statement yesterday, following the Cabinet Finance Committee’s approval of the write off despite public outcry, the Deputy Prime Minister saying publicly that he would not approve of
such a write-off and disapproval from the opposition People’s United Party.
“These continous acts of nepotism by government officials are counterproductive, not in the best interest of the public, a flagrant abuse of process, unconscionable and outright scandalous,” the PSU said. “The Ministry of Finance has once again failed the Belizean people by not being able to demonstrate that it went above and beyond to recover funds from Mr. Joshua Perdomo or his cosigner Ms. Sylvia
The PSU stressed that the $40,000 could have been used to benefit the lives of public servants who work in hazardous conditions on a daily basis in service of the Belizean public. The union also stressed that
public servants who are granted study leave are duty-bound to return to serve the Belizean people and that the people deserve no less.
When the Finance and Economic Committee of the House met on Tuesday, ministers John Saldivar, Hugo Patt, Edmond Castro, and Elodio Aragon Junior voted in favor of the write-off.
