S.S.B. Board meets suspended S.S.B. C.E.O. and Auditor

The situation with the Social Security Board (S.S.B.) senior team has already been used in advertisements against the Barrow administration. C.E.O. Merlene Bailey Martinez has been vilified in ads with horns and a hefty salary package. In mid January, the Board of Directors suspended the C.E.O. and SSB’s internal auditor Denise Mahler. The S.S.B. Board of Directors headed by Chairperson Lois Young met on Monday from four until seven-thirty in the night. We can confirm that this evening that the S.S.B. board is meeting in an undisclosed location with both C.E.O. and Internal Auditor where their fates are being decided. Insiders are speaking of possible terminations but that has not been confirmed. As soon as we can confirm the results of that meeting, we will present an update.

    See where Bernie Madoff is for white collar crime. this is stealing from your granny and grandpa pension, the man gets 500 dollars for losing an arm. there is outcry against the crackhead who pushes down the old lady and grabs her purse. well this is the same thing. still stealing from the old lady . until we can punish whit collar crime in this country, we are doomed. I bet she will get a slap on the wrist. and then they will increase her benefits for being a good UDP

    Is this only a stunt to earn political milage a few weeks before the election, or is this the newer, better way that the peoples’ business will be conducted going forward?

    I hope the latter is true! Everyone who is entrusted with the peoples’ money always seem to find a way to leave with more than a fair share.

    Mr. PM the PUP mess fpr the most part got you off life support, but you are still in the intensive care with all the monitors still hooked up!

    Dean as demonstrated consistency in punishing ministers and officers that have been demonstrated wrong, so he has demonstrated to be the best leader.

    @ Trader Joe….. I agree with you because they are not the only ones doing that. Every goverment that comes into power does this.Just because we can’t see what they are doing that doesn’t mean that it is not a crime.The blue color crimes are obvious but the white color crime is killing the country slowly.

    Common on, that’s a sick joke. Barrow does not punish but rewards his ministers and lackeys. At the end Bailey will be rewarded. Just a cover up. Yes, Barrow is best Master of the games–can we call it the best leader? Belizeans have no job; things are “haad out ya” but king barrow & sons and lois are enjoying good life.
