Minister Hulse says Penner has been punished for passport scandal

Elvin Penner

Minister Hulse says that the files on Won Hong Kim are still missing and that has caused setbacks in the investigations. But Hulse went on a limb to protect former minister of state Elvin Penner, who he thought has already been punished for the illegality of issuing a passport to a man who never set foot in Belize and clearly did not meet even the basic requirements. Hulse also offered that the courts would have to prove if indeed Penner knows Kim.

“The only reason the media is involved in this and the only reason the media and the public knows about this is because the Taiwanese Embassy made a request to our ministry and the ministry of foreign affairs with respect to this gentleman and the fact that he was asking for some protection as a citizen of Belize. When it came to my desk, I recognized that there was something wrong and we initiated that investigation. I went promptly at the Prime Minister and after he looked at promptly within a day removed Minister Penner from the Cabinet. That must we given some recognition…ousted from the cabinet of Belize. We continued our further internal investigation and found out a lot of things were not the way they should have been and not the way a minister should have behaved. The government took the decision to distance him in the House. He is distanced in the House. Lord man, never happened in the history of the British Commonwealth, never happened in Belize before…you gotta give some credit to that. So to say nothing happened. The Prime Minister can’t put him out the House…you all know that. He has to be removed either by a recall or something else.  What the public is concerned about is how come no charges have been laid against Minister Penner yet, but not investigating Minister Penner and nobody wants to investigate him. 

Godwin Hulse

He has been thoroughly investigated. And that issue of charges being laid is a matter for the police and the D.P.P. So we want to make it crystal clear. And if charges are laid against Minister Penner, then he has to face the music. Minister Penner signed the nationality certificate, he has the authority to do that you know. Minister Penner signed a picture saying that this is the true likeness of so and so. There is nothing wrong with that you know because we don’t know that he don’t know that man. That would have to be proven in court.  I don’t know that he didn’t know Mister Kim. I don’t know that. That has to be proven in a court so to say that he signed that is an offense, is something that has to be proven in court. The fact that he signed the nationality certificate; he had the authority to sign the nationality certificate. The fact that the nationality was predated to the time that it signed is an issue. But somebody in court, some forensic export has to prove that that was his handwriting that put that date on it. So those are the intricacies of taking a case to court. You will hear the prime minister say legal guilt and factual guilt are two different things. It could smell bad, look bad and people could draw their conclusions, but lord man we are all aware of so many cases that have gone to the court and walked.”

  1. I Belize Ali Babarrow is the head thief says:

    Follow the money and ant trail: Penner-> Hulse -> Ali

    Ali does not want an investigation.
    Hulse does not want an investigation
    Penner does not want an investigation

    Every Belizean should obey these criminals.

  2. I Belize Ali Babarrow is the head thief says:

    The people need to investigate Ali and his forty.
    Send them to prison.
    Get Belize back to a democracy, not a kleptocracy.

  3. I Belize Ali Babarrow is the head thief says:

    >>>Hulse says Penner has been punished

    By who? you blocked the senate with your toadies
    By what? you blocked the courts to seek justice.

    Hulse- F!!k off, you parasite.
    A prison bed is what you need, and what Belize needs.

    keep guarding Ali’s testicle, that is all you are good for.

    Your whole life comes down to this: soul corrupted, kissing Ali’s boot, a traitor to your country.

Back in the days you were able to hide things..but with the technology we have today….you are being monitored every single minute…”He has been Punished”.

    Who is this JACK#$% think he’s fooling, the ignorant, illiterate street thugs that they encourage? How ignorant he sounds? I guess we should feel happy that there was a half-a.. investigation into a minister. It should have happened a long time ago, even when the PUP administration was in power and some of their corrupt officials. The people of Belize needs to continue pressing this issue and set a precedent so that any government realize that we no longer will be docile. We need another “Heads of Agreement” uprising in this country. You’re scared that eventually your name will be called.

    PERFECT EXAMPLE OF HOW PEOPLE CHANGE.
    HULSE BEFORE HE BECAME THE MINISTER GOOD AND A FAIR PERSON
    HULSE AFTER HE BECAME THE MINISTER GOOD IN TWISTING AND TURNING
    FOR HIS CONVENIENCE!!!
