Fonseca says PM is responsible for issue at Immigration and Nationality Department

Francis Fonseca

Leader of the Opposition Francis Fonseca, in raising the matter, says that responsibility for what has transpired falls squarely at the feet of Prime Minister Barrow since he appointed Penner the portfolio of Minister of State in the Ministry of Immigration fully aware of allegations made against him leading up to the last general elections.  Penner, it is strongly believed, was involved in the overnight naturalization of scores of immigrants prior to last year’s election.

 

Francis Fonseca, Leader of the Opposition

“So Mr. Godwin must take, the senator, the honorable senator must take, the honorable minister must take responsibility as well.  But ultimately, Mr. Speaker, we and the Belizean people have to hold the prime minister responsible because he is the one who appointed the member for Cayo Northeast to this position of Minister of State with responsibility for immigration knowing fully well, he knew, he knew that he was creating a very, very dangerous situation by doing that.  He knew, it was well documented before the elections, during the elections and after the elections, they knew it was well documented that this particular member for Cayo Northeast had abused the rules and regulations governing that department, he knew it.  It was, the expressed concerns came not only from us in the opposition but it came from people in the private sector, it came from people in the social sector.  So the response of the prime minister after the election, in appointing this man, this individual, the member for Cayo Northeast to this position was effectively saying, you know, a slap in the face of everybody who expressed concerns about this particular individual knowing that it was a recipe for disaster, that it would eventually lead to the very kind of scandal and problems that is affecting us today and giving Belize a black eye.”

    Why would the PM not give him the top position, after all they won the election with all the illegal citizenship that was handed out to those who ran from their own mess in the country of their birth to come to Belize where there is little law and justice is slack.

    This PM never accept responsibility for what he does wrong, he hides behind every rock that is available to him. Vote him out people.
