More from PM on Immigration Fiasco

Dean Barrow

As you saw, when the Prime Minister was protected by the parliamentary privilege afforded in the House, he was quick to make a connection between the alleged Immigration scam artist and member for Toledo East Mike Espat. Outside the House, he was a little more cautious in his commentary and finally referred us to Minister of Immigration Godwin Hulse for more information.


Dean Barrow, Prime Minister

“I was very careful you know I said a P.U.P. operative who is an associate of the member for Toledo East I didn’t suggest that the member for Toledo East is in any way involved and I will make mention that my reports doesn’t indicate that at all and I will not say that there is guilt by association. But I can’t answer your question except to say that what the minister told me that the master mind has been doing this for a little amount of time and has been getting away with it. Now I am not sure and so you really should talk to Minister Hulse. I am not sure whether what these people were given is false or whether the ring and the scheme was such that they were able to procure legitimate documents from the ministry of immigration it was my sense that these people were being completely hood winked by the agents claiming to act with authority of the immigration department when they had none. But Godwin can furnish you with all the details.”
