CCU, MOE Dismiss COLA Plea on Medical Schools

Columbus Central University School of Medicine and the Ministry of Education have issued desultory responses to Citizens Organized for Liberty through Action’s public stunt in front of the Airport Road compound of the medical school. While the university has changed its name, it appears the same man, Doctor Malik Soudah, is in charge. He remains firm that the school is operational and recruiting for 2018 under a valid charter from the Ministry of Education. He did not make clear why the school uses the same telephone number as the San Pedro-based Washington University of Health Sciences.  In a text to media colleagues, Minister of Education Patrick Faber called C.O.L.A. and its allies paid mercenaries and said he would not respond to them, but was willing to answer questions on medical schools in a proper forum. An aggrieved COLA hit back on Wednesday, charging that the Minister was not doing his job and ought to take their campaign seriously; otherwise he would be guilty by association. As for Columbus/American Global, COLA pointedly asks how many students have graduated and says it wants to put a stop to Belizean being a pawn for trickery.
