The P.U.P. Response to BCCI’s Statements on UHS Loan & State of Emergency

The People’s United Party today reacted to a statement by the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry in respect of the U.H.S. loan motion which was taken to House, but voted down.  The P.U.P. notes that it took a very long time for the social partners to condemn the childish and petulant behaviour of the U.D.P. which it says has been a norm for a decade.  But the P.U.P. expresses dismay at the gullibility of the Chamber in not recognizing G.O.B.’s ploy not only with the U.H.S. matter, but several other costly financial matters such as the now infamous B.T.L. saga.  According to the P.U.P., the initial U.H.S. debt was dealt with and fixed by the P.U.P.  It notes that the loan which now stands at ninety-five million dollars falls squarely on those in the National Assembly that have persistently and purposely created these politically and financially beneficial schemes to enrich their cronies.  It states that its walk-out from the House was because it chose not to be part of the mockery created by the government which took a bill that would be defeated.  The P.U.P. calls on all social partners to keep vigilant for more of these manoeuvres as general elections draw closer.  In a second release, the P.U.P. reacts to a statement on the state of public emergency issued last week by the B.C.C.I.  It chides the Chamber for placing blame on elected representatives for the increase in criminal activity, especially in Belize City. The P.U.P. says the B.C.C.I. strayed away from the root causes of crime and the role the society plays in the creation of crime.  It also states that it requires greater community participation in preventing crime and calls on all sectors to invest in the social and human capital especially in the marginalized areas of Belize City.
