Do you agree that BIL will be used to hustle?

Another hot button issue is the establishment of a company called the Belize Infrastructure Limited which was recently established by the government and then by and large assumed works previously carried out by the Ministry of Works. Tonight’s question is: Do you agree that BIL, GOB’s sixty million dollar infrastructure company, will be used to hustle?

    It is transparent that Barrow and his Junta are planning to steal more taxpayers’ money to benefit his criminal enterprise . Those $60 million dollars should be deposited in the various banks and credit unions and earmarked for low interest loans to private investors who will undertake infrastructures development through pure competition. But keep the politicians and the civil servants out of this hare brain, asinine , plunder. No need for another layer of government bureaucracy.

    In Belize people tend to get big egos, big heads and uppitty real quick. We take good ideas and turn them into hustles. This is a good idea that needs to have transparency, checks and balance and well defined processes to minimize the chances of the organization being usurp.

    Will the employees of BIL be civil servants or is this a private company funded by tax dollars?

    From the past corruption of the PUP we are bound to believe that the same will happen again. But we cannot really speak until we get the full details. Of course, the PUP were corrupt and at the moment we can only see that the UDP will do the same. But these are two different parties and I cannot see in the the past years any out right corruption by the UDP. Is this is? Possibly, but we should get the full information ………..

    LMAO at Johns! Dude hasn’t been living in Belize the last 5 years and has never heard of Gapi Vega, nor Rene Montero, nor Zenaida Moya I suppose. Hilarious!

    While you’re looking those up, look up “legal fees to ex spouses to do AG’s work” and tell me what you find.

  5. Gimme Some Truth says:

    call it BILK.
    It is that transparent.

  6. Bear says:

    Of course it is a criminal theft vehicle!

    1. Money was already stolen from some GOB account to fund BIL outside the approved budget, with the effect that there is no surplus to pay wage increases to teachers.
    2. BIL will be used for nepotism, to hire relatives of “Clear the land” and the rest of Ali Barrow and the 40 thieves.
    3. BIL will be used to hustle kickbacks and other money from inflated “public infrastructure” projects contracted to cronies and relatives that do shoddy work with shoddy materials — if they do anything at all.
    4. BIL will be used to pay bonuses to politically appointed directors, who will directly profit from dividends derived from taxpayer money.

    I’m probably overlooking some other opportunities to steal via BIL that will be exploited to the maximum. After the revolution, all of the thieves need to be held upside down and shaken, to see how much stolen money drops from their pockets. Then they need to be locked up for years according to the amounts of their thefts.

  7. Seletar says:

    Not long ago the Governor General of the Caymans called on the Crown to turn out the PM and his government because of similar institutional corruption.

    Is this the smoking gun that will justify Governor General Sir Colville Young to call on London to bring down the regime here? It would be preferable to national unrest and possible violence to save the nation.

  8. Storm says:

    @Johns, I think we have seen UDP corruption in the way the DPM gives land and resources to his friends and family, and in the disappearance of evidence in major cases, and Belizean citizenship and passports sold to international terrorists and murderers, and in endless nepotism, and the employment of notorious murderers on the government payroll — what more do you need to see a problem? And if you think about the past for 5 minutes, you’ll remember much more, I’m sure.

    They say “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” — friend, our nation is ablaze with corruption from north to south and east to west!
