Foreign Minister Denies Doug Singh Under Investigation, Facing Extradition

Wilfred ‘Sedi’ Elrington

There has been rampant speculation since Wednesday about a predawn raid at the business place of businessman Doug Singh in the City. Speaking from Thailand by phone, the highly connected Singh, who is chair of the Social Security Board as well as Citrus Products of Belize Limited, told us absolutely not so on Wednesday. Today, there was another report circulating of an extradition request, all tied to the purported raid. News Five has been told by the Foreign Minister, that all this is idle speculation.

“You will recall that when you asked me about it earlier today I told you I had no such knowledge of it but I would check both at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and at the Attorney General’s Ministry.  You saw me do both of that and you heard what was the response; neither at the office of the Attorney General nor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs do we have any such information about any such request.  Apparently that is just a figment of somebody’s imagination.  There is no request as far as we are aware officially.”
