Patrick Faber says former G.O.B. caused UB problems

One man who held no apologies at last week Friday’s House meeting in the Capital is Minister of Education Patrick Faber. Faber addressed the payroll audit of the University of Belize which was commissioned by U.B. President, Doctor Cary Fraser.  The draft report has been the reason why the Faculty and Staff Association held an on-campus protest and staged a sickout. They have analyzed the incomplete audit and have suggested that wrongdoing has occurred at the University. Faber blamed the former government for many of the issues that developed at U.B. over the years.

“In 2008, with the change of government, we found an institution which failed to produce financial audits although this is a basic requirement under the U.B. act. The lands of the university were raided by corrupt P.U.P.s; two year olds were getting scholarships to go to the university and not a single master’s degree program and the majority of graduates were business students. My gosh, there was even an immigration scandal in 2006 Mister Speaker, where Chinese nationals were said to be smuggled into the United States in a scheme where the university’s cultural exchange program was used as a cover. This was the U.B. that we found in 2008. The new Board of Trustees doubled up to bring the audits up to date. They have secured land title for their properties across the country and now they are moving to further protect these assets under the creation of a trust, much like the Baron Bliss trust.”

    MMMMM The POT calling the KETTLE Black, the only difference between the PUP and the UDP is in their different colors cz both are the same !@#$……they care not one bit about the Belizean ppl, only about lining theit pockets n that of thier a$$ kissing cronies

  3. EZ Deh. says:

    all faba talks about is pup pup pup. you are in the hot seat now, do your job or resign.

  4. blackberry says:

    Why does this man has to live in the past? We elected his team to fix the wrong that was done in the past. Not to play the blame game.

  5. By Stander says:

    over and over again we have heard this…your telling us that all this time UDP has been in power there was no way they can fix it? This is exactly why UDP and PUP are both the same just wearing a diffrent color. It is time for a new government but It’s sad to say I dont think Belizeans are capable of seeing it, all most of them worry about is “what you gwein gimmie????” What about the benefit of the country and people as a whole? Think about it fellow Belizeans.

    He sounds like Obama in the US, president for 5 years and he still blames George Bush for everything! Pretty asinine sounding to any intelligent person, both up there and down here.

    So you’ve had 5 years to produce an audit, and it still isn’t finished?

    We Belizeans can only assume, Hon. Faber, that you are deliberately stalling the audit so that the time to prosecute thieves will have expired. That’s the story of ALL government corruption in the Jewel, both UDP and PUP.

    Can we stand more of the same next time we vote? HELL NO!

    You are letting people play and steal PUBLIC MONEY, so get OUR BOOKS open to the public, and let the chips fall where they may.

    There’s a lot of rage against you now, because you obviously are refusing to do a competent and honest job. It will only get worse until you come clean. If you’re not involved in the theft personally, let’s see the numbers NOW.

    “Immigration scandal,” you say?

    YOUR UDP GOVERNMENT HAS ONE, TOO, IN THE HEADLINES TODAY AND ALMOST EVERY WEEK! Only difference I see is that UDP lets in Hezbollah and Slovakian terrorists, while PUP let in Chinese students.

    Get your head out of your — I mean, the sand. You’ll be dust one day, like everyone, and so far you will be remembered for your failures.

  8. Bear says:

    @By Stander, good point. US President said it this way, and it has stuck in my heart since I first heard it:

    “Think not what your country can do for you, think what you can do for your country.” That principle needs to be drummed into every Belizean child by every teacher in the land.

  9. Maya says:

    I think its time for the UDP to stop blame the past government for everything that has went wrong. its thier second term and its time for them to get up on their seat and correct whats need to be corrected and move onn and stop blaming the PUP!!
