Elrington Sought by Police for Medical Fraud…

A Belizean fugitive wanted by the US has been spotted in Belize. Physician, Errol Elrington, a sibling of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, is wanted in the United States on a slew of criminal offenses related to his profession as a medical practitioner.  His name appears in the list of the U.S. Office of the Inspector General’s most wanted fugitives for medical fraud. It is alleged that Elrington perpetrated Medicaid fraud, healthcare fraud, as well as racketeering when he purportedly employed an unlicensed physician to treat patients at Elrington Medical Center in Redford, Michigan.  Investigators believe that Elrington falsely billed Medicare and Medicaid almost half a million U.S. dollars for services that were never performed.  Moreover, his unlicensed employee is also accused of engaging in criminal sexual misconduct.  He is being held on remand pending a trial.  Despite being the owner of the business, Elrington is said to have spent most of his time under the employ of another medical facility as its chief medical officer.  A warrant for his arrest was subsequently issued on October seventh, 2013.  Less than twenty-four hours after being interviewed by federal authorities, Elrington reportedly absconded to Belize where he remains on the lam.

    This is typical of this gov. Now they are hiding criminals imagine the ministers are actually hiding criminals I hope the us gov. Is taking note of all the activities of this corrupt pm and gov. This is the same thing minister Elrington is doing in Belize and this gov. Is covering up all his crimes and now he is helping his family elude the FBI. By hiding his family who is wanted by the FBI. Ok belizeans here goes there is a million dollar bounty on Elrington so the person that turns him in is going to be rich. Channel 5 you need to post his pic it’s on the FBI wanted file.9

    What comes to mind when you hear the word “Barrow” or “Penner” or “Faber”? Nope not the names of classmates.

    Hint: The word that comes to mind is synonymous with Elrington.

    THIEF! SHYSTER! CROOK!

    All the persons in a family does not make up our government.
    We are all individuals responsible for OUR OWN ACTIONS.
    I find it disturbing and unfair that Ministers Wilfred and Hubert Erlington is being verbally attacked for an ALLEGATION against their brother.
    Innocent until proven guilty and if the younger Erlington is found guilty the Ministers are not responsible.
    Geesh, many of us face crisis in our families and are lucky that we are not in the spotlight.
    If my dad Iis labelled a murderer, child molester… does that make me one?
    If my mother is a prostitute… Does that make me one?
    Compassion my people. THAT DOCTOR is A VERY COMPASSIONATE man WHO HAS ASSISTED MANY BELIZEANS in the US including my family. He has taken them into his home and treated them as family and nothing less.
    My heart broke when I read the news. The good things he has done crossed my mind. God is the only Man that is perfect. AND WE ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
    MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU anD YOUR family ministers and Doc Erlington.

    Now minister Elrington has his own to deal with. He must remember that this world is round. His brother must face the music, this is typical UDP style hustle, embezzlement, thief, etc.
