By Aaron Humes: Prime Minister Dean Barrow in moving the first reading of the amended Prevention of Corruption in Public Life Act to add a member to the Integrity Commission to be nominated by the National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) addressed in part of the demands presented by the unions at their meeting of two weeks ago.
He explained that that meeting, scheduled before the demonstration held on February 20, covered many points including efforts to expand the Commission, but that the concurrent demand for more resources for the Commission was being dealt with by his Ministry.
Therefore, he suggested, the NTUCB would have more sway as a member of the Commission, which it would be when this bill is passed, to discuss having more resources for the Commission.
The Commission’s current membership includes persons appointed through the Government and Opposition by the Governor General.
