Eamon Courtenay calls PM Penner loving and Castro hugging

Eamon Courtenay

And then Courtenay really got doing, calling Prime Minister Dean Barrow a liar…not only that…but a Penner-loving, Castro-hugging liar.

 

Eamon Courtenay, President, Bar Association

“So for the Prime Minister to say that I am sweating fever for the Ashcroft Group because we lost the case in which Justice Awich is involved is a comprehensive and categorical lie. I want to make it very clear. The Prime Minister lied to this country when he said that I was in the Caribbean court of Justice and the Caribbean Court of Justice scolded me. That is a lie. The Prime Minister said in the national Assembly on Friday that the Caribbean Court of Justice vindicated his position with respect to Awich. That is a lie. The Prime Minister has said that the reason Justice Awich is there is because he has acquitted himself well…the Prime Minister must tell the Belizean people which judgments it is that Justice Awich has done that has caused him to come to that conclusion. The point of the matter is very simple. The Bar Association has taken a principled and consistent position on this matter. The Prime Minister is the one that has appointed Justice Awich….and I want to make this very clear. Every resolution passed by the Bar on the Justice Awich matter was unanimous. There was one on which one member said that he would abstain. Every single resolution passed by the Bar on Justice Awich was approved by friends and family of Dean Barrow. None of them loved him so much that they would vote against it. His brother has not done it, his nieces have not done it, his law partner has not done it. None of them have voted in favour of Justice Awich. He is in a majority of one. The Prime Minister needs to stop being personal. He needs to stop attacking people when they disagree with him. As far as I am concerned, he is a Penner loving, Castro hugging, lying Prime Minister. That is my view.”

    LOL! If that ain’t personal, it would take a lawyer to explain it…. Yawn.

    Don’t disrespect bootyman, he is on the prowl for some young diplomatic boys, and maybe boys.

    @Belizeanwatch it doesn’t matter which (P) did what whenever it was done. One wrong don’t right another wrong. The corruption cannot continue unabated there MUST be a point where people say enough is enough. This is the problem of Belize’s general population…too damn narrow minded and easily bought, sold or both. Stop being so passive! Stop taking sides! Stop this mentality that unnu du it suh they (U.D.P) unnu cud du it too.
