Once accused of same practice, P.U.P. wants investigation

The People’s United Party, which was also accused of the same practice before the last election, today issued a lengthy release on the issue charging that due process and the necessary rigorous scrutiny are being ignored on naturalization applications, and many of those persons who are being sworn in as instant Belizeans do not even meet the necessary criteria for citizenship. According to the opposition, not only are applicants reportedly obtaining nationality on the same day as the presentation of their application but in the case of some applications, the necessary documentation is incomplete, lacking and even simply unverifiable. Calling the ongoing exercise a reprehensible corruption of the laws, the P.U.P. wants an immediate cessation and a detailed investigation to ensure that all necessary legalities are met and due diligence is performed in respect of all applicants for citizenship and permanent residency.

    That the PUP may have done the same does not in any way make it right for the UDP do the same. The very fact that the UDP condemned such actions in the past makes them more responsible to oversee such things do not happened on their watch. Mr. Barrow must be held accountable.

    Two WRONGS does not make a RIGHT. It is about making what is WRONG RIGHT for all Belizeans. We are all tired of corruptions and “Jancrow Philosophy”, Weh you cant eat, you spoil. At the end of the day, all of us pay the ultimate price of suffering.

    Lucas your comment has much truth to it, but to suggest the UDP is no more responsible for the mess than the PUP who did it first is just wrong! They are all trained lawyers and people with education who lead these political parties. If the common man on the street with standard 6 education can know this is wrong the last crowd has no excuse: “to whom much is given much is expected”.

    The country is in such a mess it is a shame and the only ones that will suffer are the ones who need the most help: the poor! There are no really good candidates to vote for. The Belizean voters has to choose between candidates who are bad or just as bad!
