Posted: Tuesday, June 20, 2023. 11:22 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: At Friday’s sitting of the House of Representatives, Speaker of the House, Valerie Woods was forced to call a recess following a heated argument between Leader of the Opposition Shyne Barrow and members of the Government’s side.

During the exchange, Barrow reportedly accused Minister of Tourism, Anthony Mahler of physically assaulting another cabinet member.

To which Mahler responded, “Meet me outside, meet me outside.”

Barrow then alluded that he could file a lawsuit against Mahler.

“I would want to see you do that. No police nuh the een yah.  That will be a lawsuit. I could make a nice money, you rich right now. You rich right now so you could afford it,” Barrow said.

“Nobody nuh the stop yo. Nobody nuh the stop yo. Nice law suit. I dah nuh Kareem Musa, I dah nuh Kareem Musa. How you mek the man punch your breda and you nuh do nothing,” he added.

Barrow said that he will continue to intervene when a standing order is violated.

“It is what happens when you insult members when you go from debating the substance of bills, legislation to name calling,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Speaker of the House said that the behavior in the House of Representatives, “And it speaks to language, language that the women all women parliamentarians in this chamber, both sides and the other side has taken an issue with, and it cannot be countenanced even if it is captured on recess and not on record. It is unfortunate that I was not in chamber because I would never have allowed.”
