Pm On Following the Drug Money

The Prime Minister says the fight against drug lords will be a continuous one because they have already set up a network that we now have to break up.

“It’s a matter now of following the money to see where the drugs end and go after the people, whosoever is involved. Certainly, now with the Police Department we have to take a hard look as to what is happening there and see what changes we can make. Whatever changes that need to be made we will make it because we have to do everything that we possibly can to be able to stop the landing of planes in this country. One of the things that keep me up at night is drug lords coming and taking over Belize because it could happen with the amount of money that they have. Look at what has happened to Mexico, that over the years the Government allowed them to put a solid hold into certain areas of the country, and for the past decade they have been fighting with big guns and everything between the drug lords and the Mexican army and we don’t want to get to that point because we do not have the resources that the Government of Mexico has, so we need to nip it in the bud.”
