Joint Special Committee Of National Assembly to Investigate Report

Dean Barrow

At the Senate Meeting on Wednesday, the People’s United Party proposed a motion for a senate select investigation into the immigration irregularities. This is the second time that that motion has been put to the floor and the second time that it has been defeated. Prematurely, as it turns out, lead senate for government, Godwin Hulse presented a motion for a joint select committee to investigate. Prime Minister says he got the nod from the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday.

“The Chamber Executive yesterday also supported government’s proposal that the public hearings to be held on the immigration special report be carried out by a joint select committee of the national assembly as opposed to just a senate select committee. The feeling is that the composition of that special purpose joint select committee should reflect the balance of representative we have agreed for the reconfigured public accounts committee. And of course we are united in our feeling that the hearings will be held in public and will be televised and broadcast live.”
