Arab Emirates national, Jalal Ebrahimi, wanted in the U.S.

Arthur Saldivar did not present any new documents today, but one he presented on Tuesday is of particular interest. That is a nationality certificate for Jalal Ebrahimi, who allegedly lives in Corozal and is a United Arab Emirates national. It appears that Penner had friends from all over the world, as he also signed onto Ebrahimi’s nationality certificate. News Five has confirmed that Ebrahimi is a person of serious interest to U.S. authorities.

“It appears that Mr. Ebrahimi may be connected to a terrorist organization. We know that before we had the situation involving a member of Hezbollah, acquiring Belizean citizenship and passport documents under the guide of a dead Mennonite child. Ebrahimi may be within the same circle and as a result of that he has been red flagged and that transaction is being looked at very closely from my understanding.”

“What is the inconsistency that caught your attention with that particular document?”


Arthur Saldivar

“Well the inconsistency with the document is relating to the amount of time that it took between the time of application to the time of process of the nationality certificate. One would expect that were it relates to this process where the person is not resident in Belize the person has never set foot in Belize that you would at least be able to ascertain that the period for which the vetting of the police record will take is roughly about a month. They have to do the physical examination, the aids test and other things. The entire process usually takes for a person going through the regular procedure is between six to ten months. From the time of application to the time of nationality certificate being prepared and there after you get the passport if you so desire right after. But in this particular incident it was only a month, the fellow applies in July and the documents are prepared in August.”

    Dean Barrow said that Barrack Obama has done nothing for Belize. It seems he will finally get his wish and that President Obama will finally do something for the Jewel. I suspect this will be in the form of a Cadre of Home Land Security and FBI personnel. I want to be the first at the airport to greet them. Hell, I am prepared to pay for their tickets.

    >Penner had friends from all over the world,

    actually the Honorable Penner only has friends in the Cabinet.
    Contrerass, Salvidar, Castro, and the rest of the pack have friends all over the world.

    Why would the Honorable Penner sign undated official documents that would result in passports?
    Who would have the power to get the Honorable Penner to agree to that?
    After all he is a Johnny come lately to the high level government corruption, his action is in Cayo not UAE.

    Did not Barrow recently travel to UAE????
    maybe it was not Barrow, maybe it was someone close to Barrow cutting this Jalal Ebrahimi passport deal behind the PM’s back. Damn low level people.

    Who’s your daddy Elvin?
    No ratting the cabinet out, Uncle Beano will have to give you some tough luv if you even think about it. Plus law enforcement and the gangs all work for Beano, it is Beano’s Belize.

    Captain and officers must go down with the ship; well maybe not captain schettino; and some of the richer and sly ministers who are ready to bolt.

    Belizean flag ships are worth not much these days, but that is another UDP scandal.

    This is food for thought: the Hezbollah member acquiring a Belizean passport with a dead Mennoite birth certificate, the key word here is “Mennonite” and Penner is a first Mennonite disgraced Area Rep so I wonder how many dead mennonites has he resurrected?

  4. Al says:

    The more details come out, the more ministers past and present will be checking their foreign bank accounts. Even if the law (personal security) fails to bring them to justice, and they are able to escape and run and enjoy their raping rewards, belize will still be better off to just get rid of these pigs one way or the other.

  5. Al Rich says:

    I hope the United States is paying attention. Belize could be a launching place for terrorists into the US. These traveling with Belizean citizenship and passport flies under the radar with no problem.

    Now that we know names and personal information of dead people are available for sale, who knows how many people are already in the US getting ready to do their dirty deed.

    I am so ashamed of the people in government who are representing this country. Belize has earned the recognition as most corrupt country if there was such an award.

  6. Concerned American says:

    This deeply troubles me as an American citizen. How many of these have been processed through the system?
    Hezbollah is only loyal to Hezbollah. Belize is not part of their community. They are using this small country and it’s incredibly corrupt government as a means to an end. I wonder what that end will turn out to be.
    Is this part of building up their terrorist army? Making their people more mobile and less suspicious? I noticed that the passport in the attached picture is from Iran. That alone should be throwing up huge red flags for the US. How deep into the government does this rot exist? I look forward to more reporting on this. The media in America is largely ignoring the whole story.
