3 more Asians got nationalities almost on arrival to the jewel

Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl-Lynn Vidal dropped an inadvertent bombshell last week, in the form of a memo to the National Crimes Investigation Branch. In that memo Vidal quotes from a report by Police investigator A.S.P. Julio Valdez. Valdez makes the shocking revelation that he found discrepancies in the Immigration Department during his investigation, but he was instructed not to pursue that avenue. Nobody has been able to find out who issued those instructions, and honestly it appears that nobody has made much of an attempt to do so. News Five has managed to obtain a copy of just three of those discrepancies found by Valdez before he was called off the case. Just as he did for Won Hong Kim, Elvin Penner plays a starring role in obtaining nationality certificates for three other Asian nationals. Meet Vietnamese national turned brand new Belizeans Quoc Vinh Truong…Taiwanese national Yiu Pang Chen and Chinese national Jack Jie Qin. All three were given Belizean nationality on the same day, May eighteenth, 2013. All three nationality certificates were signed by then Minister of State with responsibility for immigration, Elvin Penner. Normally these certificates wouldn’t be cause for scrutiny. After all, it was Penner’s official duty to sign such nationality certificates for new Belizeans. But like Won Hong Kim, these three persons did not qualify for nationality. Lead investigator, Assistant Superintendent of Police Julio Valdez, allegedly made inquiries into the three persons to determine when they came to Belize. On October thirty-first, 2013, Valdez received a letter from PGIA Port Commander Debra Baptist Estrada confirming that Chen, Qin and Truong entered Belize on April tenth 2013. Estrada attached the flight manifest as additional evidence, proving that all three came in on United Flight 1407. Chen, Qin and Truong arrived in Belize on April tenth…yet one month after, on May eighteenth, all three became citizens of Belize. Truong, a Vietnamese national and Chen, a Taiwanese national, both give their addresses at twenty-one Vernon Street in Belize City. Qin, the Chinese national, gives an address of Trial Farm in Orange Walk. We note that even in the face of clear evidence of wrongdoing, case in point these three nationality certificates, ASP Valdez was instructed to halt his investigation. So who issued the infamous instructions? We figure it’s just a matter of time before that comes to light.

    Penner is one of the 40, untouchable, as long as he does not rat out …

    But do you really think Penner could do this on his own?

    The Honorable Penner is one who takes orders, not give them!

    He does not fly around the world making these deals. He does as he is told.

    Do you actually think some junior minister can outdo ……..?
    If he was that good, he would have …..man’s seat at cabinet.
    Someone gives him a list of names and says ‘fetch, earn your marks’.
