Barrow’s large cash deposit in US Bank
The opposition People’s United Party has been attacking the Prime Minister in ads for depositing cheques of US twenty-five thousand dollars to his account at Wachovia Bank and another for thirty-two thousand with Bank of America. The trust of the ad is that the PM has no confidence in the economy and has been making deposits in US banks. Recently, copies of credit card statements have been circulating showing charges made to the PM’s US held credit card with Wachovia Bank. The charges go back to September and October of 2009 and amount to a little over seven thousand US dollars for purchases. A perusal of the statement, however, shows other activity. There are time deposits of more than half a million US dollars or over a million Belize dollars held with the US Bank. Now, there is no doubt the PM is a wealthy man, but with the elections so close, the PUP today released another ad on the Wachovia credit card statement.
