ComPol decided that there be no criminal investigation into Penner

Allen Whylie

We’ve presented to you the judicial review hearing in a nutshell, but there was much more of interest coming out of today’s proceedings. Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie was missing in action after being given seven days to answer a letter asking him to investigate Elvin Penner. He refused all calls for interviews with the media. But he was in court today and was the last to emerge from the courtroom with his attorney, Deputy Solicitor General Nigel Hawke. The media was anxious to get some comment from him on several critical and extremely pertinent issues, like the D.P.P.’s explosive memo, for example. But it was not to be. Whylie emerged from the courtroom and pushed his way through the media blockade, refusing to give any comment. Of note is that for the first time, it was officially revealed that Commissioner Whylie is the man who made the decision that there would be no criminal investigation into former Minister of State Elvin Penner. In the courtroom, attorney Nigel Hawke made that distinction crystal clear no less than five times. That makes Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie, to borrow police terminology, a person of interest – in the middle of a political mess.

    Allen Whylie, untouchable, one of the 40.

    Ali sleeps well with him guarding the chicken coop.

  2. Elgin Martinez says:

    Whylie is in no position to decide if penner is going to be investigated.That’s above his pay scale.

    …and the soup thickens! They are all involved one way our the other; whether implicitly or explicitly.

    We are all a bunch of I-D-I-O-T-S! We let things go this far. Man will only go as far as we let them and as Belizeans best 3/4 of us Are a cowardly people.

  6. BelizeaninAsia says:

    Why did we need to wait for the opposition to force an investigation?? Why can’t people rise up when they see injustice?? Look at what Thailand did? They removed their curropt leaders PERSONALLY once they found out what was taking place.

  7. Belizean Pride says:

    I think people want or need to start an uprising just like Venezuela to stop this crop of curroption that has our country crippled to where it is. So much has been done and we the people need to stand up so these things will stop.
