Lebanese man claims Court Prosecutor for Immigration Department swindled him

Also in court, a Lebanese businessman is claiming that he was swindled out of hundreds of dollars by twenty-nine year old Herman Tzib. The alleged incident occurred on April fourteenth, but police didn’t detain Tzib until this morning and he was arraigned for Extortion in the Belmopan Magistrate Court before Adolph Lucas Junior. According to Bilal el Mousawel, Tzib who works as a court prosecutor for the Immigration Department, collected six hundred and eighty dollars from him without authorization. He pleaded not guilty and was granted bail of five thousand dollars before his case was adjourned until July twenty-sixth.

    For ME and ROD!!!…where is the integrity and loyalty of these Officers????…How many of these corrupt activities was occurring under the PUP administration and nothing came to light>>>the lost of hundreds of Belizean Passports…..I am not politically affiliated but i don’t believe the UDP administration is tolerating corruption…those concern should shift their focus to the Belize Western Border regarding the same activities….IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS CORRUPTION….it happens in broad daylight….Just yesterday a Belizean Freelance journalist was arrested for Drug Trafficking in San Ignacio….his vehicle was never searched by Custom Officer at the Western Border….do you see what i mean!!!!….

    Devaluation is not the problem…greediness is the problem…its the integrity that is lack from these Officers…they are all corrupt…

    to Benqueno, what happen to no guilty until proven otherwise???? Who tells you that the lebanese man did not lie? I hope that now that matters have been settled in court Mr. Tzib sues the guy and the guy offers him a public apology for defamation and damages done. If it was me i would make that guy pay me every cent…
