Paul Thompson and Godwin Hulse Spar Over Audit Report

Paul Thompson

While the senate meeting today had a far more respectable ambience when compared to last Friday’s House Sitting, there was some back and forth. It came when Senator Paul Thompson quoted from the report on recommendations made by former minister of state Santiago Castillo. Senator Hulse was quick on his feet.

“We don’t know why the erstwhile minister would do something like that; he is supposedly wealthy and supposedly has no need for extra benefits that supposedly comes from these special kinds of transactions. Perhaps he was trying to join the crowd, run with the pack.”

 

Godwin Hulse

Godwin Hulse, Senator for Government Business

“The Auditor General and the report….you cannot stand in this House and accuse people of criminal activity. You cannot start and impute improper motives to any member of either chamber, past or present man. So to say that you don’t know why he need the money; I hope that’s not in the report.”

 

Paul Thompson

“But we can give no such benefit of the doubt to the member from Cayo West; that man requires special attention. There are countless letters he wrote requesting visas for so called businessmen from the Far East and Eastern Europe and Mexico. Some of them got their passport five days after they received their visas to visit Belize; in special cases, the same day they arrived in the country.”

 

We’ll have more from the senate later in the newscast.
