Is the Police looking for Kimano Barrow’s Oil Concession Partner?

For weeks, it has been reported that Allen Saum, is on the police’s wanted list. Saum is the man who is being accused of tampering with legal documents filed at the Company’s registry in Belmopan, naming him as one of the super majority shareholders in Paradise Energy Limited. The others are Oren Miles first and second. Paradise, you will recall, is the company, involving Kimano Barrow, the PM’s nephew, who was given an oil exploration concession for more than a million acres that includes a vast tract of protected areas. Well, since this morning, reports swirled that Saum, who lives at a local hotel in Orange Walk Town, would have turned himself in to police.  The report was spurred by a previous visit to his hotel room by a police officer. But instead of Saum, his attorney Elston Kaseke went to the station. In a very brief statement, Kaseke, said that when he checked, he was told that the police were not really looking for the elusive Saum.  So what’s next given the serious allegation against Saum? Well according to Kaseke, he will follow-up on the matter with the investigating officer, one Sergeant Reyes. Paradise Energy has come under fire because it was widely believed that Barrow and the other company partner, Alfredo Acosta, were merely fronting to get the concession.

    ITS AN UNFORTUNATE THING BUT THESE CORRUPT POLITICIANS AND THEIR CRONIES WILL KEEP PUSHING AND DOING WHAT THEY DO, WITH THEIR NEPOTISM AND RAPE OF OUR RESOURCES UNTIL WE CANT TAKE IT ANY MORE AND GO THE ROUTE OF EGYPT AND LYBIA.
    POLITICIANS WILL KEEP GIVING IT TU US UNTIL WE CHANGE AND START STANDING UP FOR WHAT WE KNOW IS RIGHT. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THAT IS, BELIZE IS SO SMALL, THAT ALTHOUGH OUR LEADERS ARE KILLING US, THEY ARENT DOING IT ALONE. WE HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THE CORRUPTION OR WE HAVE FRIENDS THAT ARE INVOLVED. SO ITS JUST A VICIOUS CYCLE.

    I PRAY FOR NEW AND JUST LEADERSHIP…POWER TO THE PEOPLE….

    Where there is smoke, there is fire and fire is fuelled by [OIL]. The worst is yet to come but Uncle Dean probably have a flambuoyant, eloguent, glittery speech on que to do damage control when the media confronts him on the issue. It’s amazing how this man has his followers blinded by BULL$#@T. ALL SPEECH AND NO SUBSTANCE= DEAN BARROW!!!
