Health Minister Pablo Marin on Stolen Vehicles

Because of our volume of news on Monday, we didn’t carry the following two stories. First, we have a report on stolen vehicles from the Ministry of Health which has angered Belizeans. A total of four vehicles have been stolen from the ministry, three of which were taken from its headquarters in Belmopan since the beginning of the year and believed to have been taken across the western border.  The theft of the Toyota Hilux pickups has certainly raised eyebrows and despite efforts by Belmopan police to crack the case, there are no leads to begin their investigation.  Minister of Health, Pablo Marin, didn’t seem to be too concerned about the stolen vehicles.

“It is sad to see but if you can notice, all of these vehicles that have been stolen are based in Belmopan. There is some kind of group that is attacking or trying to do mischief or selling these kinds of vehicles. We are trying to put a hand on it; right now we are moving where the booth is, where the guard is. We are going to put some cameras and we are trying to get GPS in our vehicles because we don’t know exactly who it is. We leave everything in the hands of the police, but that’s about it.”

“Sir, but only your vehicles are being targeted. Obviously this is a Ministry of Health type thing and somebody has to be held accountable. We can’t even get a picture of these vehicles…like bwai see wah picture yah. At least when the one was stolen from Central Region, Melinda Guerra called us in, gave us security footage, gave us the picture of the vehicle. But in this case in Belmopan, oh dehn thief wah new Hilux, next…”

 

Pablo Marin

“No, no, no. that is not true. What we did immediately was call the police. We did not have cameras to show you yes this is the type of vehicle. But definitely you can get the model and you can find out exactly what kind of vehicle. Maybe the ministry was a little bit slow in talking to the media, but yes we did respond to the police and tried to look at it.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, do you believe that someone within the ministry is working with this group of persons who are thieving these vehicles?”

 

Pablo Marin

“I really don’t know. You notice they stole also the mayor from Belmopan vehicle and one from agriculture. So it is not only the Ministry of Health.”

    That is so obvious. How were these vehicles stolen and why has it only the Ministry of Health vehicles? Are these vehicles let running with the keys inside? From the time the second vehicle was stolen the thought and investigation into an inside job should have started. This is one of the oldest hustle in the US and insurance companies now investigate intensively before they pay off on these types of matters. Let’s hope that we don’t find out that the hustle is from the top or most likely from the drivers themselves.

    Pablo only knows how lands are stolen. he is an expert at stealing land from other people.

    Pablo will step down from this minister job, because he is no honorable.
