By Benjamin Flowers: Today, the Public Service Union (PSU) refused to participate in the Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the sale of government assets, in protest of the Briceno administration reportedly selling off government assets with the same disregard for proper regulations that made the COI necessary in the first place.

“During the past four months, we have witnessed the sale of vehicles, aircrafts, and even guns, to CEOs and Ministers, without following the proper public disposal process,” the PSU said.

The union said that it would not participate in any further COI sessions until it has received a written commitment from Prime Minister John Briceno that the Government of Belize will cease the improper sale of public assets as well as setting up and implementing transparent processes for asset disposal.

“We signed up in good faith with a view of exposing and holding the wrongdoers accountable,” the union added. “We did not sign up for what appears to be a political show that will be limited to name calling and political grandstanding.”

The PSU also condemned the testimonies of the Accountant General and Auditor General, saying that they left much to be desired in terms of honesty with respect to the offices of the Assets and Utilities Manager and Financial Secretary. The PSU called on the joint union negotiating team negotiating good governance reforms with GOB to remain steadfast until the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) is implemented, and the Government passes Whistleblower and Illicit Enrichment Legislations, among other much-needed reforms.
