Elvin Penner is back in Cayo Northeast, but still not talking to the media

Former Minister of State and the man on the immigration hot seat Elvin Penner is back in Belize. He returned from Guatemala on Sunday, after receiving medical attention for hypertension and headaches. But the passport scandal boiling over in Belize probably won’t help his high blood pressure any. And his headaches will not be going away anytime soon. The public outcry continues unabated, on the airwave, in the media and on the streets. Organizations countrywide have called for a criminal investigation and a commission of inquiry, and the man in the crosshairs is Penner. Today, News Five caught up to him on the George Price Highway as he was heading home. Although he was fired from Cabinet more than a month ago, and his government responsibilities removed, you will notice he is still driving his government-issued SUV. Penner is not saying much, but we tried to get a comment anyway, even though his wife scolded us for making the attempt.

    What a set of thieves Robin Hood in reverse judas barrow and his merry band of thieves stealing from the poor to give the rich wake the hell up belizeans.

  2. Geez! says:

    He runs to Spanish Lookout to ask “his” people what to do next! What about the rest of us in Northeast Penner? When will you visit us? I have my daughter who needs a passport but she has to wait until I can find the money to pay the fees………..Meanwhile all the Mennonites in Bolivia are flashing their brand new Belizean passports as they travel through South America with ease. Some of the NEW Belizeans are already applying for USA visas. The terrorists must be planning their next trip….And here I am Penner, a poor grassroots Belizean of 5th Street San Ignacio stuck trying to make ends meet. I WANT my Meat Processing and Meat Packing Plant you promised with 500 Jobs you Godless Man!

    Agreed, someone that sells passport and makes thousands of dollars should be locked in jail. Penner is a traitor to the nation of Belize. Belize will never prosper and development with parasites like Penner.

    Sad to say but Belizeans are just natural weak pushovers, which is why these criminals don’t care if they doubletalk or lie outright. Tell me what repercussions these guys face ? they make the rules and the laws, they will always get away bc Belizeans don’t have the backbone to stand up to anyone other than standing up to relatives or neighbors. Belizeans are puny, they feel inferior to these thieves in dress-pants, wirebearer shirts, which their “big time” education and lingo. Who are we fooling, not only will these criminals not go to jail but they will be reelected again, if not next election, the in after next…the same way they cuss the criminal organization called the PUP out of office, they will soon beg them back in…Not only are Belizeans weak but they also have short temp memory.

    The UDP selected family members, and campaigners to fill positions in government jobs. They selected ambassadors, CEOs, Directors so that whatever they do is COVERED UP. For Elrington to say Foreign affairs had nothing to do with passport and visa scam is a HUMONGOUS LIE. These things were coming through the embassies from around the world and Foreign affairs Elrington is in charge of embassies, so for the man to say foreign affairs has nothing to do with Immigration is a total farce. Ms. Murga, the driver Wayne and everyone included, Elrington had to know what was happening, because he is THE CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP…AND… NOTHING COULD BE DONE WITHOUT HIS BLESSINGS. This whole network of criminal action was being masterminded by people with serious criminal thinking, because for a man in prison to get a BELIZEAN PASSPORT, is not an easy task. For people to release hundreds of thousands of their money, they had to know that competent trusted men and women were in control of this whole net work from Taiwan, to China, to Cuba, to Mexico, to Belize. Even the customs officers had to know to allow the dollars to pass through, because no one is allowed to bring in $10,000.00 by FIU. If they are covering this thing up, it’s because it is CRIMINALLY CONTROLLED, and not a government sanction operation. WAKE UP BELIZE TO THE CRIMINALS WE HAVE LORDING OVER US LIKE SAINTS.

    This is what BARROW was asking us for by saying; “Please support our CORRUPT politician so that our clean political party can continue to hold ON TO POSWER.

    The word clean should be replaced with the word CORRUPT, for the sentence to be TRUE!

  9. Belizean says:

    @GEEZ – This statement, a quote of yourself: “a poor grassroots Belizean” is what makes you that way. See, with this mindset, people become what they are. For sure, and I insist, Penner is not in the right, and I DEMAND TO KNOW WHO ELSE, is involved in this!!!!!!!

  10. Guerra says:

    For Elrington to get on television and ask us to support this criminal net work masterminded by UDP, is the same as saying LETS BE A HEAVEN FOR CRIMINALS. Lets forget moral values,, scruples, honesty, principles and become the NUMBER ONE CORRUPTED COUNTRY IN THE WORD.

  11. NY says:

    BARROW, PENNER, AMILIA, VEGAS, CASTRO, ELRINGTON, SALDIVAR, just to name a few, all need to be charge for corruption. BARRROW PAYS MILLIONS OUT OF THE GOB’S COFFER/TAX PAYERS HARD EARN DOLLARS, TO HIS SIBLING AND EX-WIFE TO LIVE LAVISH LIFESTYLES, ALL UNDER THE DISGUISE THAT THE BZEAN PEOPLE NEED THEM TO REPRESENT GOB. ALL THOSE MYSTERIOUS PLANES, WITH THOSE MYSTERIOUS PASSENGERS THAT USED TO LAND AT TH PGIA AFTER DARK, WAS EXIBIT A OF HOW WELL ORCHESTRATED THIS SCHEME WAS/IS. THE ROSEWOOD FIASCO WAS EXIBIT B, AMILIA, VEGAS AND OTHERS, W/ THE BLESSINGS OF THE PM, COLLUDED TOGETHER IN DEFRAUDING THE PEOPLE OF BZE OF MUCH NEEDED REVENUE. THIS IS WHY I HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT BZE NEEDS REAL INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS, DUE TO THE FACT THAT THERE ARE MANY STORIES TO BE HAVE I.E., THE ENTIRE GOB IS CORRUPT. AT THIS POINT, THEY ALL FEAR PENNER, BECAUSE HE CAN BLOW THE LID OFF AND EXPOSE ALL OF THEM AND THEIR SECRETS, SO THE PEOPLE OF BZE SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISE IF PENNER COMES UP MISSING.. THE MEDIA NEEDS TO STAY AT THIS AND NOT ALLOW THE GOB TO PUT UP ANY SMOKE AND SCREEN TACTICS TO DISTRACT THE BZEAN PEOPLE ATTENTION. I THINK THE PUBLIC DESERVESTO KNOW THE TRUTH, SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE BETTER CHOICES WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTING CANDIDATES TO REPRESENT THEM, I.E. PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOVE OF COUNTRY FIRST, OVER LOVE OF MONEY. AND AS A RESULT, ALL OF BZE WILL BE ABLE TO PROSPER BECAUSE GOB WILL HAVE SOME OF THE REVENUE AT HAND TO START EDUCATING OUR KIDS AND MAKE THE INVESTMENTS THAT THE COUNTRY SO DESPERATLY NEED TO COMPETE ON THE GLOBAL MARKET.
