Was Prime Minister Dean Barrow aware of the memo?

Dean Barrow

Shortly after receiving a copy of that damning memo, News Five contacted D.P.P. Cheryl Lynn-Vidal for comment. She was livid about the leak and had absolutely nothing to say about the memo. But she did say that if somebody in the Police Department would see it fit to leak a document which is plainly marked confidential, then it should be something which the Commissioner of Police should take steps to deal with immediately. At the moment, the Commissioner of Police has his hands full, but we managed to get comment from Prime Minister Dean Barrow today. We asked him if he was aware of the communication from the D.P.P. to the head of the National Crimes Investigation Branch.

“No I’m not, but I will certainly familiarize myself with it. I can’t believe that that’s accurate. Still I don’t doubt you and so let me check into it and I wish you pursue it with the investigating officer. Ask him who the hell, if somebody did give him that instruction, ask him who the hell did. I would certainly like to know because that is the sort of thing that we don’t countenance at all.”

“That is what the D.P.P. is asking sir; she has it right here. That is what the D.P.P. is asking the police to please find out who instructed this gentleman to…”

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow 

“Well indeed, if indeed such an instruction was given, I too would want to know who gave such an instruction. I am not accepted that it was; I simply don’t know, but if it was, we need to get to the bottom of that.”

 

News Five has been unable to contact ASP Julio Valdez for verification, but we’ll keep trying.

  1. Ali BaBarrow, ring leader says:

    Ali Babarrow is the king of thieves. He does not need to know about this memo. His 40 are hand picked and know their business. And their business is never to rat ALI.

    Crosses can be erected, burn them at the stake, torture them to the death, but ALI’s 40 will never give up their master.

    Ali Akbar!!!

  2. Ali BaBarrow, ring leader says:

    Now the real test: Will ALI sacrifice Hulse?

    Abraham was called to give up Isaac. ALI must draw the blood of Hulse,

    Penner is a hand maiden, a sea urchin, inconsequential. A used conch.

    ALI must sacrifice Hulse at Caracol at Alter Five to fulfill prophecy and start the great new war with Guats and Tikal. This is your destiny Hulse, what you have been bred for.

    Although it could be moved to Altun Ha if Belikin can make a good offer and CH5 gets video rights.

    Belize, a Caribbean joke by a corrupt government.

    Prime Minister…when you were elected…I decided to give you an opportunity…in my mind you had a clean slate. Your elected minsters shame you… it is clear to me that you have no control over them. Its like you let loose hungry children in a candy store. And Prime Minister…I hold you responsible for any and all actions. Clean shop or you will not have the support of so many out there who gave you the opportunity to serve. Remind your ministers that they were elected to serve…the people…not themselves….

  5. LOL says:

    Perhaps at the time of this interview Dean Barrow did no’t know about the leaked document nor its content

  6. Belizean Pride says:

    As usual he never knows what is going on, until he’s being ask he finds out, wonder where he lives that doesn’t know what the hell is going on in Belize. I feel part of this lie that he never knows nothing is being a hypocrite to say he doesn’t know anything. Come on the person that should know more about what is going on is the PM himself , how can a father not know how his kids are growing? how his family state is, if never knows nothing. damn!!!!!

  7. CEO says:

    Someone that leaks information of the government’s wrong doing is a hero! Just like Snowden should be treated.

    Hell with whether it said CONFIDENTIAL or not. Evil doers always want to conceal their wrong doing so a confidential stamp should never prevent this. After all they work for the people and should answer to the people of Belize.

    This is a shame!
