Godwin Hulse Draws Parallel Between Arthur Saldivar and Elvin Penner

Arthur Saldivar

Attorney Arthur Saldivar was dumped on Wednesday by his party following a meeting of the P.U.P. Executive. Saldivar was removed as standard bearer for the Belize Rural North but says he will still be engaged in electoral politics as an Independent P.U.P.  His fall from grace came after a client publicly complained that Saldivar took more than nine hundred and four thousand dollars from her after the cash was released by the Financial Intelligence Unit in a money laundering case. This morning, the Minister of Immigration, Godwin Hulse likened Saldivar’s fall as that of Elvin Penner and in a not too subtle message, Hulse said Saldivar is illegally holding immigration files.

“To my knowledge government has never made any interventions. I don’t know where this idea is continuing to surface and is getting some kind of traction. Let me put it straight to you. In fact just yesterday you saw an example or heard an example of how the P.U.P. handled the Arthur Saldivar thing. That is a carbon copy of how the prime minister handled the Elvin Penner thing, man. Elvin Penner signed a certificate which the Prime Minister was not comfortable with and so he was expelled from the cabinet and then distanced in the House. The people of Belize then in that area should or could at some time decide whether they wanted him to continue representing them. As you know the party does not want him to represent them and he is not the standard bearer for that area and will not be the standard bearer for that area and so that is as much as we can do. I want to highlight again because it has never been really fleshed out that in this whole process, Mister Saldivar kept saying he had a hundred and fifty files. To my knowledge, he only produced five, so there are a hundred and forty-five still outstanding out there. And it is illegal to be holding public/government property. So if he has them or know where they are, he should bring them up.”

    Mr. Hulse can you please stop yuh !@$$! Penner comited a crime and was never charged in a court of law for it. He was shielded by the GOB and to date the very police who are suppose to be upholding the law are obstructing justice by not producing the files needed so charges can be levy.

    What Saldivar did “was not illegal but distasteful” (a term you should be familiar with) and he was dismissed from his party. Let’s see you guys do this!

    My comment is not a signature of support for the opposition just facts.
