Politics Aside, Imer Hernandez Will Provide ‘First-Class’ Result

Does Imer Hernandez’s family ties to former Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega place him under intense public scrutiny insofar as the Faber’s Road project and other past contracts are concerned? Interestingly, PM Barrow says the nephew of the Orange Walk North Area Representative is not known for any party political allegiance.  Barrow adds that the people of Belize, as well as the government, will get bang for its bucks with the road works initiative.

“He is, I don’t know, except for the familial relationship with Gaspar Vega, I don’t know Imer Hernandez to be a politician of any stripe.  I listened to Mr. Brackett earlier on; I certainly do not agree with him that Imer is not a good contractor.  There are very many projects that he has done and it is my clear understanding that he has done those projects satisfactorily.  I believe we’re unveiling the statue of Sir Barry for the Sir Barry Bowen Municipal Airport.  That’s a project that Imer did.  The Ministry of Works certainly had no difficulty with Mr. Hernandez.  There has been no blackballing of Imer Hernandez, so I understand the political angle you’re trying to get at but it really ought not to be allowed to work.  This man is a contractor and has been a contractor for years and years and years and as far as we are concerned, a good one.  He will be able, in my mind, to do this job properly and if there is any doubt the performance this afternoon of Mr. Moody ought to say to you all, let those doubts be stilled.  Clearly this man knows exactly what he’s about.  He’s explained what the process will be to ensure that every step of the way that the contractor performs properly, all the tests, the technician on site and what he didn’t say; any phase is finished and there’s a problem the contractor won’t get paid.  So I don’t believe that we need have any fears at all on that score.  We are going to get value for money; we are going to get a first class project.”
