By Aaron Humes: Though its leader Patrick Faber has not taken a position and says the United Democratic Party has not officially done so either, it seems clear a majority of members have the view that the proposed Eleventh Amendment to the Constitution would negatively impact many, chief among them Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Moses “Shyne” Barrow.

And political financier and businessman Lord Michael Ashcroft appears to agree.

Parliamentarian Tracey Taegar-Panton posted to social media the thoughts of her 81-year-old mother, physician Dr Andrea Taegar (widow of the late Dr Leroy Taegar).

The elder Taegar asserts that Shyne has paid his debt to society with nine years’ imprisonment for the shooting of patrons at a club in New York in 1997, and has not been accused of any wrongdoing since, and therefore has every right to serve in the National Assembly.

Further, she states that anyone who has been down the same road has and deserves a right to redemption, and that many white-collar criminals have offered themselves for office and been selected despite their wrongdoings.

Ashcroft retweeted the statement with a comment to Breaking Belize News’ Twitter handle @belizemedia: “I totally agree with Tracy’s 81-year-old mum.”

While that makes it almost unanimous, it remains to be seen whether party boss Faber can be brought around. He says he wants to consult more widely within the party, and his position will be whatever the party ultimately adopts.
