Dr. Ramon Figueroa to Leave Ministry of Health (?)

Ramon Figueroa

We take a break from crime to report that Health C.E.O., Doctor Ramon Figueroa, is said to be on is way out. Reports of his anticipated departure are circulating in the Ministry of Health. From what we have gathered, Doctor Figueroa’s untimely departure from the ministry has to do with Minister of Health, Pablo Marin. The minister and his C.E.O. are said not to see eye-to-eye and have been having differences in the running of the ministry. Information to News Five is that Doctor George Gough, the Chairman of the Medical Council of Belize, will replace Figueroa who is currently on leave and is expected to return to office on Monday. A public relations officer for the ministry told News Five that while no confirmation could be offered, reports of Doctor Figueroa’s imminent departure was strong within the ministry. We were also told that the reported differences between the C.E.O. and the minister have been prevalent in the ministry.  In May, Doctor Angel Campos was removed from the Ministry of Health where he was responsible for N.H.I. and placed in the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation.  At the time, it was widely reported there were rising tensions with Marin, but the minister denied the reports saying that he and Doctor Campos parted ways on good terms.
