    I don’t think the ring leaders will be arrested because the ring leaders are certainly people with political and financial INFLUENCE; thus, they are PROTECTED by the institutions with power and authority. In other words, GOB will protect the ring leaders because they have political connections or even some politicians are involved.

    As I have mentioned previously, an International Human Smuggling Ring to operated, it requires a well organized structure with numerous actors that have power and authority. In other words, this incident involves a great number of actors, FROM high ranking elected (Ministers/Politicians) and appointed (CEOs) public officials TO low-level public officers (Immigration & Custom Officers). This is not the first time we are facing this problem. The PUP administration have had a piece of scandals too.

    What we need is an independent commission that is composed of different parties with different issues.

    My recommendation is that it should not include the suspects mentioned above but the commission be composed of (i) both PUP and UDP appointed members; Belize senate, U.S. intelligence officers (just for this case); judges; senior police officers from not the district of Belize;and others. This commission has to involved different parties with different interest so that the report of the truth is non-bias.

    The ring leaders r obviously people with power. They will not b caught or convicted.

    What have we, as Belizeans, done wrong to deserve such a corrupted government? We failed to choose our leaders with wisdom and forethought. We are led by a cowardly government, therefore we are controlled by all that our leader fears.

    Mr. Perdomo was my teacher at SJC. As a teacher he was a bookworm fool. Today he is still a fool. So to be led by a fool is to be led by the ring leaders who control the fool.

    The ring leaders will disappear. The fool will report to the coward, and the coward will divert our attention with trifle matters . End of immigration scandal story.

    The question is…who gave the authorization to the air traffic controller to let that chartered plane land in our beautiful jewel. The air traffic controller had to get the authorization from someone in a very high place. If the air traffic controller didn’t authorize that landing, there is no way in hell that, that plane could have landed at our airport. So my point is ARREST THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER, AND START SOME HEAVY INTERROGATIONS, DO YOUR JOB C.I.B.
    OH on another note Jefferies is a waste of time to this nation, bring back Mr Williams

    The only way this investigation will lead to the arrest of the ring leaders of the human smuggling ring is if they bring in independent professional investigators who are not scared of these corrupt politicians.

    NO.. When the people that are responsible for the crime are doing their own investigation you will never know the truth.. Mr Singh said it himself.. Well connected business people.. High ranking officers..

    We need to have an external investigation done..
