Where in the world is Eric Chang?

Eric Chang

Belize City Councilor Eric Chang is still missing in action. But his name continues to come up in the passport scandal which saw the fall from grace of Elvin Penner. It is believed that Chang was the go-between and courier who took the newly-minted Belizean passport to Taipei, where it was placed at the disposal of Kim Wonhong. News Five has been piecing the details together. First, the passport…which ended up at the Honduras Embassy in Taipei! It was forwarded by that embassy to Belize with queries. That’s when the dolly-house started to crumble. But how did the Honduran Embassy get it in the first place? Well, News five has confirmed that Kim was seeking asylum from prosecution in Honduras and in Panama. Now back to Eric Chang. We’ve gotten hold of a confidential internal immigration correspondence which proves that Chang’s name has come up in investigations as far back as January 2013. The document was sent to the Director of Immigration and Nationality Services and is dated January twenty-eighth, 2013. In it an immigration clerk describes a meeting he had with men he identified as Patrick Tillett and Eric Chang, both from the Belize City Council. Chang had allegedly purchased two visas through a consultant for persons who wanted to visit Belize. According to the document, Chang paid the consultant nine thousand, six hundred dollars – two thousand each for the visas and the balance as a consultancy fee. There’s more, but the point is that Chang’s name has reached at least as far as the desk of the Director of Immigration – but no farther than that. Interestingly enough, the document is dated January twenty-eighth, 2013. One week after, then Director of Immigration Ruth Meighan was very quietly transferred to the Ministry of Finance.

    The bigger question is this? What did Dean Barrow know and when did he know? Answer: Everything and from the beginning. These are his financiers. They are dirty and have corrupted our country. Those who have believed his nonsense have always known this. As long as they benefit, they don’t care. That is what is wrong with party politics in Belize. If u get some of the dirty money, u look the other way. Then u preach righteousness when it doesn’t suit. Shame on us all!

    Didn’t you learn from Mcafee, the more you hide, the guiltier you look. Or is it that you took 100K from a mobster who didn’t get what he was promised and now you must stay in Taiwan to protect your family.

    One hundred K…are you kidding, if you get 100K there is no way you can donate 500K to a Special en–y!!! It is disheartening to see how rich people can abuse poor people who are in need… talking about all these foundations that are claiming to raise money to help sick, poor, needy , homeless people etc. I thin an investigation into those should be carried out!!!!!I can point you in a dierction that will show a foundation that raises over $36,000,000.00 to fund a $2,000,000.00 cause and the thing they are suppose to fund isn’t complete and they are still raising money in the name of the cause!!!!! What heartless crooks!!!!

Criminals have dreadlocks, cornrows, drop out of school, hangout on the street corner, smoke weed, drink liquor,dress like tugs and bums, These are your Honorable Ministers; i like that word (Honorable) sound so dignified soooo (Pious) hmmm? So now you all asking these same criminals to investigate themselves. What a freak show.
    Stop voting for criminals, stop putting them in these position. Why get mad when you vouch for criminals and they go commit crimes?

    I think the question should be, when will he come back from his exotic vacation, because from January to now, at the rate these pass port and visas are passing hands, the man has a lot of money to spend.
