US COURTS RULE IN FAVOR OF PUP/GODFREY DEAL
US COURTS RULE IN FAVOR OF PUP/GODFREY DEAL BELIZE CITY, Fri. Mar. 3, 2017– The Government of Belize has lost another court case in the US-stemming from the actions of the previous Musa administration-The US Court of Appeal in the Eleventh Circuit, with jurisdiction in Georgia, Florida and Alabama, USA, has denied GOB's motion to dismiss the US$22 million award handed down in favor of Glenn D. Godfrey, a Belizean attorney and former People’s United Party (PUP) Cabinet Minister.
Here we have a similar, detrimental scenario being played out once again.
This was seemingly a foregone conclusion and yet another example of the intentional dysfunction of the corrupt PUDP system.
Rack up yet another legal loss, for the GOB meanwhile the real losers are the common people, who shall be made to foot the bill.
When will our people get fed-up with this ongoing, intentional fleecing of the nation, by corrupt politicians? That is the operative question.
As long as Belizeans continue to empower the PUDP, by voting them into office, most unfortunately, this destructive trend shall persist to the detriment of the nation's well-being.
