Bradley also questions proposed changes to section 2 of constitution

On Open your Eyes this morning, Dickie Bradley quoted verbatim the controversial proposed amendment to section sixty-nine of the constitution. The new subsection says that “for the removal of doubts, it is hereby declared that the provisions of this section are all inclusive and exhaustive and there is no other limitation whether substantive or procedural, on the power of the National Assembly to alter this constitution and a law passed by the national Assembly to alter the provisions of this constitution to be passed in conformity with this section shall not be open to challenge in the court of law on any ground what so ever.” Bradley also questioned the proposed change to Section two which he says has nothing with government’s objective to entrench utilities in the constitution.

“First question is why do you want to tamper with section two? Why yoh want tamper with dat, why yoh want amend dat? Dat noh deh eena yoh way. Dat noh have nothing fi do wid nationalization. Second question is sixty-nine, which lays down di procedure fi change di constitution; why yoh want weaken di understanding of that because you’re not making it stronger, you’re preventing people.  So let us be very clear, the people who want to ask questions at these things; is it true that section seventeen of the constitution of Belize already authorizes the government to take B.T.L.  The short answer is yes, that is the constitutional law that provides that. I’m gonna tell you this, I’m gonna stick my head out there. we must be the only country that is putting B.T.L. eena di constitution, dat di put B.E.L. eena di—the constitution is a sacred document that deals with your values and principles as a people and a nation. The constitution already authorize the government to take B.T.L., providing it will pay their compensation and do other things; allow them to have access to the court. They are not paying the compensation and they are doing everything to prevent access to the courts.”

    Lawyer Bradley is the LAST peson whose advice I would follow about laws to protect this country. He’s the most prominent tool of the gangsters who are destroying this country. In my eyes, because of the unscrupulous means he seems to use to spring dangerous criminals from jail, he has a lot of blood on his hands. He may have collected a lot of big fees, but he can’t take it with him to meet his judgment.

    You re right Storm, but that doesnt take away from the fact that what he is saying is right, but i do agree, he and other lawyers in Belize are the reason why criminals get off while they keep getting richer, and the only solution barrow could come up with is, Preventative Detention. Did you ever stop to think what he could do with parliamentary Supremacy? Then have the right to lock you up for X amount of days with no idea where you are, and no justification is required for that. Imagine what he could do to his opposition. I say we all need to support these lawyers now, the churches and even the opposition even if we are against the opposition. These ammendments could very well change the way we live, while a few remain in power. I think we need to get serious and extend that text Barrow got to his phone on the preventative detention, to include the ninth ammendment. No way no how we should take this sitting down, I say the day for a revolution is now..!

    I use to think the same way, up to very recently when I beagn re-evaluating Belize’s system of government. As a result, I ask is it the lawyers fault that the murderers get away with their crimes, or is it the LAWS of BELIZE THAT NEED TO BE REWRITTEN???!!!! The people of Belize, including the LAWYERS, should organize and get together to protest and have certain laws ammended, to make sure we have tougher lawsand not allow lawyers to bypass them so easily and help set the murderers free!!!

You are discouraging people from coming to belize because of the crimes and you are one of the many people contributing to the crimes in our beautiful country. We are living in a good country its people like who are bad.
