Deputy Mayor Eric Chang to face the music on passport scandal on Thursday

Deputy Mayor Eric Chang returns from Taiwan on Thursday to face the blaring music of his alleged involvement in the existing passport scandal.  Chang is accused of being the courier of a fraudulent Belizean passport to imprisoned South Korean businessman, Kim Wonhong, a few weeks ago.  While Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley has gone on record to say that he is awaiting the outcome of an investigation into the matter, Prime Minister Barrow said earlier today that there really is no evidence supporting the allegation that Chang acted as the bearer of the document.  Barrow says that what has been reported about Chang’s involvement is conjectural at best.

“In terms of Eric Chang, I don’t know where this comes from.  Whatever is being said about Eric Chang is utterly anecdotal, there is nothing at all by way of evidence or material to suggest any involvement on the part of Eric Chang.  I have heard what you have heard, what the media has hear but do you have any evidence at all to say that Eric Chang played any role in this?  I have my suspicions but again we must act on the basis of evidence.  In terms of what honorable Penner did, there were clear actions on his part that were a matter of fact.  I have nothing with respect to Eric Chang except what I am hearing and that’s scuttlebutt.  It may well be true but it doesn’t arise to the, it doesn’t reach the level of anything that’s, in the slightest degree, actionable.”

 

Chang is scheduled to meet with Mayor Darrell Bradley upon his return on Thursday.

    so why we haven’t heard from Chang??? if I was had a clean conscience, I would have called the media houses to clear my name…but like he guilty, he is planning on what to say or invent a good believable story…I assure you, nothing will happen with Chang…if Mayor Bradley discipline Chang, then Dean Barrow have threaten not to support him in the general election in any constituency as Caribbean Shores is assigned for Santi…
