Immigration Investigation Determines Nanes Documents Were Fraudulent

Then there’s the fact that when Mexican-American Nanes Schnitzer was apprehended, he had more Belizean ID on him than the average Belizean. The Prime Minister pulled no bones in citing corruption at the highest level.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“When there are things that make clear that there is obviously a level of collusion, not to say corruption on the part of public servants…I don’t mean just civil servants…I’m talking about everybody in the public service including ministers. When anything happens that demonstrates that things can be done to circumvent the law in consequence of the collusion of person in authority that is very distressing. That is very upsetting. Of course we’re never ever going to have a simon pure society but it still leaves me very distraught.”

“Will there be any investigation at the level of the Ministry of Immigration?”

“There is already an investigation. Remember he had nationality, and that was revoked. That’s another thing, again in terms of following the law. If we had simply revoked the nationality and handed him across…but the law requires that we publish notice of the revocation. Look, while a lot of things went wrong initially leading to for example the granting of nationality when he didn’t properly qualify…in the end what prevented us from simply handing this man across is our determination to follow the law. And I repeat…once the Minister signed the revocation order you might well ask why not simply hand him across…because the law says you must publish it in the gazette, you must serve notice on him, and that is what caused time to elapse which permitted his going before the Courts and getting bail from the Judge.”

 

According to PM Barrow, supporting documentation put forward by Nanes to secure nationality was fraudulent. Further to that, Barrow says that he is confident that every effort will be made to bring those responsible for knowingly processing and approving that nationality before the Public Service Commission. Based on past experience, it didn’t quite happen that way.
