Release Claims Victory for Whistleblowers

Following the withdrawal of the case by the Minister of State, Great Belize Productions/Channel Five issued a statement saying that it has been vindicated in this high profile case because while public figures have a right to safeguard their reputations, they should expect to be subject to a greater degree of public scrutiny and criticism. But more importantly, the public has a right to be informed and the media has a responsibility to be vigilant and expose corruption. It is also a huge victory for whistleblowers, who bravely expose wrongdoings by public officials, thereby holding those public officials to account and strengthening our democracy.

    “Great Belizeans Productions”….really???? It’s Great Belize Productions. That’s the name of the company you work for.

    “hold public officials to account and strengthening our democracy.”….you mean “hold public officials accountable, thereby strengthening our democracy.”
