Human Rights Commission of Belize condemns the fraudulent issuance of the Belizean birthright

The Chamber of Commerce, the BNTU, and others have come out swinging against the passport scandal. The Human Rights Commission of Belize joined the chorus of condemnation of the fraudulent and illegal issuance of the Belizean birthright.  HRCB says it publicly condemns the conduct of former Minister of State Elvin Penner in what appears to be his efforts to circumvent our immigration laws for his personal financial gain. HRCB also called for an immediate and thorough investigation of Penner and anyone else involved in the scandal.  The HRCB points out that Penner cannot be above the law and if criminal wrongdoing is uncovered, he must be made to face the consequences of his actions, like any other Belizean. In respect of the Public Service Union, it says it awaits the next steps which should include the intervention of the Director of Public Prosecutions and charges to be levied against Penner. The P.S.U. makes the point that public officers should be left to carry out their duties and responsibilities in accordance with the laws and regulations and should be able to perform their duties without fear or favor.
