Will B.T.B. Bring Charges of Forgery Against Myers for Faking Degrees?

Tracy Taeger-Panton

But if in fact, Myers documents were falsified, would that warrant criminal charges against the former Acting Marketing Director?

 

Reporter

“We understand that there were rumors circulating when Mister Myers was first being looked at as the replacement director and that this information reached to high-level ears and that it was sort of ignored. Why was that? why did that happen? Do you know?”

 

Tracy Taeger-Panton, C.E.O., Ministry of Tourism

“I am not aware of those rumors; I certainly did not receive any and I sit on the board of the B.T.B. as well and none of the board members received that information prior to that appointment. Again you have more information that me at this time.”

 

Duane Moody

“Lastly from me Miss Tracy, I just wanted to know. I believe that if it is true that Mister Myers did falsify his documents; that would constitute as forgery. Would it be the B.T.B.’s mandate to press charges against Mister Clive Myers for forgery or mischievous act?”

 

Tracy Taeger-Panton

“I don’t know what decision the board will make moving forward…pending a decision. It is going to be a board decision. It is going to be a decision that is going to be made by consensus and so it is premature to make that comment at this time.”

 

Duane Moody

“He’s an exemplary working, but I would believe that that would not take any kind of precedence when it comes to getting down and dealing with the person that has basically caused a black-eye to the institution man. This is the face of the country when it comes to marketing tourism, the whole product; the face of Belize.”

 

Tracy Taeger-Panton

“We haven’t discussed the case, the matter is under investigation. When the investigation is complete, the board will convene, meet and make a decision as to the best way forward.”

    Come on! A person with a proven track record for the past four years has been publicly disgraced. Now Duane is talking about charges for forgery?! The only “black eye” seems to be coming from the media which won’t let the story go until they get a drastic result.
