Police begins rounding up immigration officers

Today, News Five tried to contact Prime Minister Dean Barrow, Minister of Immigration and Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie. Those attempts were unsuccessful. We actually wanted to ask just one question that seems to be baffling everybody – who told Assistant Superintendent of Police Julio Valdez to stop investigating after he found discrepancies in the issuance of nationality certificates? Everybody wants to know…even the Director of Public Prosecutions in the memo that won’t go away. We know that the Prime Minister has gotten a copy of the memo. We also know that the Minister of National Security has gotten a copy. However, all lips remain sealed. But on another note, there is something to report on the investigation which was started, then stopped, then given a jump start of Mandamus. News Five has been reliably informed that today Police Officers in Belmopan began rounding up those immigration officers who were transferred from the Department in November. Eleven officers were transferred without prior notice, while government maintained that it was the remit of the Ministry of the Public Service to do so. Well now they are allegedly being called in by the National Crimes Investigation Branch to provide some answers. We could not get confirmation today, but we were told that current questions are focusing on the Won Hong Kim Nationality Application File which remains missing. So is this the Mandamus inspired investigation ordered by the Court? We’d say it is, but we note that if the investigators really want answers, the man who could certainly help is former Minister of State Elvin Penner. To our knowledge he has not been summoned or picked up by Police investigators.

    I must be missing something. What happen to Councilor Eric Chang and his contribution to this whole mess. Is he in Belize or hiding out in Taiwan again, beyond the stern reach of the Police ?

    The usual answer from this crowd is. I see nothing! I know nothing! I hear nothing! I did not even get up this morning.

  6. Elgin Martinez says:

    This whole corruption starts with the PM who seems to care less about the oath he took as Commander in Chief.

  7. Lord LOL says:

    Hope you all know it is the Taiwanese who is supporting the UDP party thus mostly Taiwanese are getting passports.

    It is unfortunate no big fish will be hooked and be prosecuted for their treasonous act.

  8. reality says:

    this reminds me of when the passport printing machine disappeared for the weekend. wonder how many passports were printed then and what every happened to those involved?

  9. lisa says:

    The PM loves money more than his own people.

  10. Mellow Belizean says:

    If the immigration officers are guilty, why isn’t the minister also being “rounded up” by the police?

  11. Timber says:

    Good question when someone asked about councilor Eric Chang. Even stranger, Darrell talks about doing the right thing and how honest he is. I will give you the scoop on him as he aims higher to go up the political ladder. His hands aren’t as clean as he wants the general public to know. It is going to be a bombshell. His t.v. personality Padre has his also.How come the Mayor hasn’t asked his COUNCILLOR AND EMPLOYEE, CHANG about his role in this scandal? Let Darrell try to fool some of you with his clean cut image he tries to portray every day when he gets on t.v. He is as bad and worse than ALI BABA. He’s pompous, arrogant and it’s his way or no way. His ultimate goal, Prime Minister. Hmmmmmmm. Will the powers to be let that happen? I wonder Abogado after some of your mess starts to come out. The public has already seen where the whole clan made it in from Jamaica. Do they have citizenship? Hmmmmm.
