The Belize Youth Movement Issues Release following Loan Write-Off to Joshua Perdomo

The government side of the House last Friday gave final approval to the write-off of forty thousand dollars to Joshua Perdomo, the son of the Cabinet Secretary. As soon as the motion was presented, it came under criticism from the Opposition, as well as from other sectors.  Today, the B.Y.M., which is the youth arm of the P.U.P., is making a call to all youths to demand that their student loans also be written off.  According to their statement, under the U.D.P., “We live in a Belize that is biased, we live in a country that is not fair and in one where only those select cronies obtain the opportunities that should be present for all our young brothers and sisters.” The B.Y.M. says it is despicable that all members of the government voted to forgive the loan, but none of them have ever presented a single solution that would benefit all students.  On Friday, Area Representative Kareem Musa debunked the government’s argument that the loan was being written off because it of the statue of limitations. Musa noted that the twelve-year period had not expired.
