Francis Fonseca Says Sedi’s Comments Aren’t Surprising

Francis Fonseca

P.U.P. Leader, Francis Fonseca, himself a former Attorney-General, also took issue with the comments of Elrington, but like the outcome of the case, he says they weren’t surprising. He says Elrington was simply reflecting the belief and intent of the U.D.P. government.

 

Francis Fonseca, P.U.P. Leader

“The Attorney-General had absolutely no business offering his personal views on this matter. This is a matter of national importance. The matter was before the courts and remains before the courts. So he in my view was absolutely interfering with what was taking place, the court case. But again, he was speaking on behalf of his government. He is the chief legal advisor to the government and he was obviously reflecting the position of the government; that there was absolutely nothing to worry about; this was a waste of time as he called it and other disparaging terms he used with respect to COLA and their attorney. So absolutely; that was disgraceful, it should be condemned, but not surprising again because I believe, as I have said, that that has always been the plan of the government to take this matter to court, but to make sure that there was no support from all the various relevant authorities in ensuring that the matter could be successfully prosecuted. And their plan has worked.”

 

Elrington has taken it upon himself to explain why the D.P.P. has not pursued the Penner matter, which Fonseca says is blatant crossing, and not only blurring, of the lines.

    Fonseca, their plan is working and working very good for them. WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS? DO YOU HAVE ANY?

    HONESTLY, YOU SEEM TO BE A VERY FEEBLE LEADER. NOT SURE THAT THE BELIZEAN POPULACE IS LOOKING UP TO YOU. SEE HOW THEY RALLIED BEHIND BARROW WHEN MUSA WAS DOING HIS MISCHIEF?
