Dean Flowers Addresses Smear Campaign

P.S.U. Vice President Dean Flowers has been vocal in expressing the union’s objection to government’s wage cut.   He has not shied away from making it known that public officers are not happy with their salaries being reduced amid the current economic crisis.  That frankness has led his detractors to bring to light what they call questionable land transactions involving Flowers.  This afternoon, we asked Flowers to respond to the statements being made against him regarding several parcels of land that he has acquired.

Dean Flowers, Vice President, P.S.U.

“This is a matter that the now opposition, then government, U.D.P., started.  Similar to when we had these consultations with the Barrow administration in April of last year, that was what they tried to do, discredit me by putting out my assets out there.  Now where it concerns any land that I may own, I want to say that within the Lands Department every single land owner has a file and what they should be putting out there are those files, the entire details of those files in terms of whether or not any application that was submitted by Dean Flowers satisfied the letter of the law. The reason why I haven’t found it necessary to comment on this is because as a Belizean, I have the right to purchase any land that I can afford that anyone is selling.  And if it is the government that has vacant land, as a Belizean, I have that right. I am a compliant citizen both from an income tax level and a land tax position.  I do not form part of that three hundred and eighty-seven million dollars outstanding in land tax arrears.”
