P.U.P. Claims Victory

The P.U.P. says the ruling is a victory for the people of Belize, not for the People’s United Party. A release states that the  historic and hopefully precedent setting move, the Supreme Court has found that a sitting Prime Minister violated the Constitution, repeatedly, and has legally bound him from continuing the illegal practice of spending the people’s money and then, after the fact, asking approval from Parliament. The highest court in the land has told the Prime Minister that he broke the law, and he must desist.  The P.U.P. also says that despite the ruling that the Prime Minister broke the law, and that the spending of one point five billion dollars without Parliamentary approval was unconstitutional, the Chief Justice in his wisdom has given the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance six months to right his wrongs through an amendment of the Constitution.  The release also says that the ruling must be seen as an end of an unlawful era. This U.D.P. administration under Dean Barrow, it states, has been guilty of outrageous corruption and egregious fleecing of public coffers. The free-for-all, unaccounted for spending of the Petrocaribe money is just one such instance. It adds that the ruling sends notice to the Prime Minister that he can no longer play free and loose with the people’s money.
