Senator Peyrefitte Does Not Expect Response to FOIA Letter from PM

Michael Peyrefitte

At the adjournment of today’s Senate meeting, we asked Senator Michael Peyrefitte if he has received a response from the prime minister. As we have reported, Peyrefitte wrote to Prime Minister John Briceño requesting further details on the government’s reacquisition of the Port of Belize Limited. Senator Peyrefitte requested the names of any private individuals that the government may have contracted to aid in the process. He also requested information on how much they were paid from the public coffers. Here is what Peyrefitte told us.

“In short, no he has not responded. He has not gotten it to me. I checked my email. I checked my PO box, I have checked everywhere, the National Assembly. There is no letter here for me. But it would not be surprising if he does not respond. He has a tendency to not respond to legitimate questions from the people answers that he should give and it should be fairly easy to give. I don’t see what the difficulty there. I don’t expect him to respond because he doesn’t respect the law. He hasn’t responded to my last three or four questions, which indicates that he doesn’t care. He doesn’t feel like he needs to respect the law or uphold the law. So we will see what happens.”
