P.U.P. Seeks Legal Advice on Taking G.O.B. to Court

Julius Espat

But with all that said…is there anything that can be done? According to Espat there are two options, and the National Executive of the P.U.P. has given the go ahead to explore one of them.


Julius Espat, Deputy Leader, P.U.P.

“There are two options that are really available to the people of Belize – one, take the matter to Court and two, hit the streets and demonstrate. We believe, and this was a decision made by the National Executive, not by the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, because I as the Chairman of that committee made a presentation to the Party Leader and the National Executive and they have given us all authority now to assemble a team of senior attorneys in this country to look at this thing in detail and to look at what possible angle we can take and if we should take it to Court. And I believe it will go in that direction before we hit the streets. Both options are open, but we do not believe like this Prime Minister believed in the past of civil disobedience. We believe in following the law.”


Espat says that a decision on whether to take the matter to Court will be made within the next week or two.
