Cabinet Briefed On Commission Findings: “We Cannot Allow This to Continue”

In this week’s Cabinet meeting, the Prime Minister and his advisors were given the report of the Commission of Inquiry into the sale of government assets. According to the PM’s office, cabinet condemned the detailed reports of mismanagement, waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption, which they say “have come to so clearly define the United Democratic Party Government from 2008 to 2020.” In addition, Cabinet has instructed that the report be submitted to the Office of the Attorney General and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for any advice and action deemed necessary. On Wednesday, the Prime Minister told News Five that “If there are changes to make, we will do so. We can’t allow this kind of practice to continue.” In other Cabinet news, Belize is one of only two countries chosen by the Millennium Challenge Corporation, an independent United States Government foreign aid agency. The M.C.C. supports micro, small, and medium enterprises to reduce poverty through growth. Belize stands to gain between two hundred to five hundred million U.S. dollars in program funding over the next five years. The Minister of Education has reported that five hundred and seventy schools have been approved for a return to some form of face-to-face instruction. Of these, around two hundred opened January tenth. The rest are scheduled to reopen by the end of the month. And, Cabinet approved amendments to the Plastics Regulations and amended the dates for implementation of prohibited products. These will be phased in, beginning at the end of this month and continuing through to the end of March.
