San Pedro Police Charge John Roberts Hall for License in False Name

Hall’s license has been revoked, but it seems quite clear that the council could not have done even the most cursory due diligence since that license to practice was issued under a false name – Robert Bob Hall. Interestingly, when San Pedro Police picked up John Roberts Hall on Monday he had a temporary work permit issued by the Immigration Department and a Social Security card, both in his correct name. News Five has been able to confirm that Hall had given presentations on dental tourism to Belizean dentists in Belize, and was actually partnering with a local practitioner to open the clinic in San Pedro. Minister of Tourism Manuel Heredia didn’t have all the details, but told News Five that there is obviously the need for an investigation.

“I can say that I am not quite aware of this situation. I heard that there was a doctor practicing…I wouldn’t say practicing but there is a doctor who opened an office in San Pedro and he was looking forward to a working relationship with other dentists on the island…in other words opening a dental school. To my knowledge I don’t know if he was granted a license or not. If he does indeed have a license and he was banned in the US for certain misconduct or malpractice or whatever, then indeed I would never support something like that and I believe that if that is the case that should have been reported to the Police already and action should have been taken to correct it because I would never condone anything that is wrong elsewhere that will come to Belize and government officials allow them to practice. If something illegal happened over there or if he got the license under false pretences then I believe that the law should take its course. I believe that the first thing that is done as far as I am concerned is to make sure that they have an updated license, that they were practicing somewhere else or that their licenses were renewed on a yearly basis. So even people that would come and volunteer in Belize…the first thing that they would have to do is send a copy of their active license before they were even volunteers. So if he indeed got a license somewhere or the other I think that needs to be investigated and actions taken or whatever measures taken to correct it.”

 

Hall was charged this evening with false representation for the medical license he obtained in a fake name. We’ll try to get further comment on this truly bizarre story for tomorrow’s newscast.

    Heredia should just shut up and take the bribes and payoffs to allow that foreign excrement calling himself a dentist to practice in Belize. These venal ministers are a clear and present danger to the
    safety, health, and welfare of all Belizeans. Besides, we are tired of hearing their mealy mouthed excuses such as, ” I believe this, and I believe that ” is just plain stupid. Come on man , you can believe any stupid thing but that doesn’t make it so. Stop with the foolishness.

    Why is it that all these wacky American people go to San Pedro to continue doing their crimes? Talking ABOUT MacAffeem David Nones, and now this quack dentist. it is because the politicians thewrre as soon as they hear the word dollars, they smile to their ears and facilitate anything they ask for including Voters I D. They should be investigated also.

    Of course he doesn’t know anything. The shit has hit the fan so he’s bringing out the prepared script of denying and ignorant to everything. heredia is just a lying politician like all the rest. he already got his cut and knows its unrefundable so what does he care? They already told the good dentist that when he gets bail, they have his escape plan ready for him as long as he shins up another 10 thousand dollars. US currency preferable.
