By Aaron Humes: According to Channel 7 News, former diplomat and selection for chair of the Public Service Commission (PSC), Moises Cal, has withdrawn himself from consideration for the post as of last week.

He was unanimously rejected by the Opposition United Democratic Party as well as the Public Service Union (PSU), whose members are subject to the Commission in cases of discipline.

Cal was infamously accused in 2007 in Panama of allegedly smuggling in a million U.S. dollars, bribing Customs officers to look the other way for alleged money laundering, and then absconded from charges.

Cal returned to a quiet life here in Belize and has never publicly addressed the allegations. The Prime Minister suggested in a recent press call that like Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow, who is often reminded of the charges for which he was convicted as a young man, Cal deserves a second chance; but he allowed that the Government would “take a look” at the appointment.

The past chairman of the Commission (he stepped down in June) is Charles Gibson, a career public officer turned Senator and Minister of Government under the UDP. The Union has suggested a trio of familiar names who are veterans of the public service – Marilyn Ordonez, most recently with the Belize City Council as its Director of Finance; David Gibson, a retired Ambassador; and Sandra Hall.

    I would never defend Shyne for typical misbehaving in public, however Moisés Cal abused of his position as a representative of Belize to commit an international crime. How JB has the guts to defend him is beyond belief – so stupid.
