Chamber of Commerce calls for PM, Senate and Commissioner of police to deal with passport issue

As we said earlier, there are now calls for an independent commission of inquiry. The Chamber of Commerce this afternoon called on the Prime Minister, the Senate, and the Commissioner of Police to take immediate steps to address how Kim Wonhong was able to obtain Belizean citizenship. Says the Chamber “Our nationality is not for sale, and the fraudulent acquisition of Belizean nationality is no trifling matter. We expect a full criminal investigation to be conducted, and call on the Prime Minister to convene a Commission of Inquiry comprised of non-political men and women of integrity who can review the actions of the Minister of Immigration and the Immigration Department without fear or favor.” The Chamber also says that evidence gathered by the Commission of Inquiry should be handed over to the Director of Public Prosecutions to be used in conjunction with the evidence from the police investigation, to ensure that those responsible for this most offensive act are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The private sector also points out that an internal investigation can in no way supplant the required legal process.  The Chamber also joins the rest of Belizeans in insisting that no preference is given to the Minister who is at the middle of this scandal and that all persons who are found to have participated in or facilitated the issuance of this fraudulent passport face the full legal consequences of their actions.

    All roads lead to Dean Barrow, the Prime Minister and leader of the criminal party.

    what else needs to be said?

    It is of the interest of the United States to review every Belizean passport & visa, putting everyone on hold appears to be the only means to evaluate these official government documents.

    Blocking the entry of all Belizeans coming into the United States will get the attention of the country.
    And if that does not fix the problem, your banks are next.

    Thank your clown government for their criminal activity.
    It has been a lot of fun watching these fools.

    Can anyone tell me why Dean would enact a legislation that allows all Government ministries (and in so doing Government Ministers) to open and operate a bank account dealing with foreign currencies and it give the ministry power to bypass the Central Bank of Belize, I maybe wrong but I believe he did it to allow the millions and millions of Us Dollars they got from the sale of Belizeans nationality and passport to enter the country ( Their pockets) without letting us know and the millions that the envoy and the _____ foundation to bring in the millions of dollars they raised that was supposedly for sick children. What heartless group!!

  5. Guerra says:

    Dean said they needed the account dealing with foreign currencies, because it would help them to deal with small change money. Millions of dollars is considered to be small change, since they are all aiming to be billionaires. He was right!
