P.M. rebuts U.S. criticism on human trafficking
Signing for G.O.B. this afternoon was Prime Minister Said Musa. He took the opportunity to respond to harsh criticisms by the United States of America of Belize’s record on human trafficking.
Said Musa, Prime Minister
?That Belize is now lumped and almost put in a box so to speak with, Belize, Venezuela and Cuba; I don?t think its pure coincidence. Because, when you analyze the issue of human trafficking, we have done a lot in this country to address this issue. Police, the immigration, people have raided constantly in addressing this issue of prostitution for instance and the whole question of human trafficking we?ve done a lot. But those who seek to judge us should perhaps examine their own decadent societies before they come and pass judgment on us.?
The Prime Minister is expected to seek approval at this Friday’s sitting of the House for a twenty-five million dollar loan from the government of Venezuela.
