Answers Coming on BIL and Civic

Co-Chair of Belize Infrastructure Limited, Patrick Faber, says that he has not seen any letter from Leader of the Opposition John Briceño where he requested information about contracts put to tender by BIL. Briceño had called for details on the contracts awarded, costs and other matters surrounding works associated with the special purpose vehicle created by G.O.B. for major construction works. Well, Faber says that all that information will be available on BIL’s website and that Briceño, like any other member of the public interested in knowing the details of projects under its supervision, can get it from there. But while everything will be available online, BIL will be hosting an open day where the engineers and BIL Board Members will be giving full disclosure on the civic.

“I have not seen a copy of the letter officially from Mister Briceño. As I have said on my Facebook page, I believe that it is a ploy on his part but there are numerous ways in which Mister Briceño can get the questions answered if he so desires. I am informed by the managing director of BIL, Miss Mastry, that the BIL website is in the process of updating and much of the information that he is seeking will be there. I also know as well that if he wants a proper answer to the question he can ask it as a part of questions to Ministers in the House which he ought to have done. But until I get an official copy of his request, I don’t feel obliged to answer. I have said as it relates to the Belize City Center, as Co-Chair of BIL, I have asked the BIL folks to ensure that there is an open day that we will ask the engineers, the BIL board members and everybody else to give full disclosure as to what everything is costing and as to why the Civic Center needs to undergo the kind of management contractors that we are seeking; that we will do pretty shortly and we will announce the date when it will be done. I think it is early December; I just need to confirm the date.”
