P.U.P. Senator takes on U.D.P. House Sergeant-at-Arms

The House Disciplinary Committee met today in Belmopan to discuss several items including a police report made P.U.P. Senator Doctor Louis Zabaneh against House Sergeant-at-Arms, macebearer Brian “Yellowman” Audinett. The allegation is that Audinett reportedly insulted Doctor Zabaneh on August sixteenth of this year, while inside the National Assembly.  Doctor Zabaneh reported to police that Yellowman threatened him, assertions that the macebearer rejects completely. The Police Department saw Zabaneh’s complaint as a civil matter and did not act on it.  The P.U.P. then called on the House Committee to take appropriate actions against Yellowman. After an hour-long meeting, it was decided that the House Speaker Laura Tucker Longsworth, who chairs with the committee, would sit down with both men to hash it out.

“We have a macebearer position that is a position of integrity. We require people who have good moral character to be holding that position. I have been the victim of this gentleman holding this position when he is certainly not qualified to hold that position.”

“Sir what if the outcome of this is that Mr. Audinett just gets a slap on the wrist?”

 

Dr. Louis Zabaneh

“I will discuss it will by colleagues and attorney and we will go from there.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“How would you feel about that?”

 

Dr. Louis Zabaneh

“Well if he just gets a slap on the wrist well in the first instance the people are watching this case. The people want to see if this government is serious about doing things the right way so it is certainly not in the best interest of the government to entertain this kind of behavior.”
