Is Fabers Road Contract Going to Court?

In the same vein, it has been nearly a month since Citizens Organized for Liberty through Action and attorney Kareem Musa requested details of Imer Hernandez’s eight-million dollar contract for the redo of Fabers’ Road Extension. They requested the Ministry of Works to provide the specific contract to Hernandez, the selective tendering process employed by the Ministry of Works, and the reported consent of the Contractor General. Despite the elaborate press conference called by Prime Minister Dean Barrow shortly afterward, there has been no formal response and the next logical step, according to Briceño, would be going to court to get the contract stopped.

John Briceño, P.U.P. Leader

“It seems now that everything has to go to court because we have a government that has become a rogue government. The U.D.P. has become a rogue government; they do as they wish; they are drunken with power and in many instances they do not follow the rules. We have the Freedom of Information Act, which allows citizens to be able to have access to information. As the Leader of the Opposition I also have a role, my position is even enshrined in the Constitution of Belize, and as such I believe I should have access to this information. I am not certain that the people at B.I.L. will willfully give us that information. But if we have to go to the court, to the House, if we have to go all the way to the [C.C.J.], we are going to go and we are going to press that and we are not going to stop until we get that information, so that we can then do an analysis as to what is happening and then make it available to the Belizean public.”
