By Aaron Humes: The Opposition People’s United Party says it has learned that certain “special visitors” were met at the Philip Goldson International Airport on Friday by no less than two Government ministers and plain clothes police officers and a Chinese national overseeing the loading of numerous unopened boxes onto a truck.
The ten arrivals, the PUP say, were later seen being escorted by the Ministers in official vehicles to a hotel in Belize City, and then on Saturday in Placencia.
But the PUP is concerned with the following: why were protocols breached at the PGIA to allow for the entry of the ten member delegation and cargo. Why were these persons exempted from the quarantine measures? What was in the boxes and was customs duties collected? The questions are directed to the Prime Minister, who is the Minister with responsibility for Customs and Beverly Williams, Minister responsible for Immigration.
Then the Opposition turned its attention to the most recent drug plane landing, noting that unofficially at least two dozen planes carrying drugs have landed in the country since 2018.
Invariably, narco-traffickers had the time to get away and in this case dismantle and bury the plane six feet underground, long before Police even showed up at the scene.
“It seems that despite intelligence being provided by our counterparts, our law enforcement officers always show up long after the cargo is gone, and the few arrests made never seem to stick,” the party laments.
And it concludes, “It is time for the return of law and order, good-governance and a new government of the People’s United Party that will respect the rule of law and serve the people.”
