Also bucking heads over the BTL Loan were the PUP’s Caribbean Shores Area Representative Kareem Musa and Prime Minister Dean Barrow. As reported, the PUP does not support the sovereign guarantee for the loan. According to Musa, BTL revenues have been squandered and he accused the Prime Minister of nepotism.

KAREEM MUSA, AREA REP., CARIBBEAN SHORES 

“Why is BTL being treated separately apart from the revenues of this country if it is that we supposedly own it? Is it because we want to continue to allow those at BTL to jet set to China to cut these backdoor deals to HUAWEI and all of them for ninety million and forty million. Is that the reason why we Belizeans don’t have a say in how we spend BTL money? At some point, you’re going to have to face reality Mr. Prime Minister and I know the Prime Minister usual attacks and I know the mudslinging will start on me. I don’t really care because my skin is kind of thick but what you all have to worry about. What you all have to bear in mind those of you on the other side is that UNCAC is coming. You have to bear in mind that nepotism is corruption and you all have to bear in mind because you all like to crucify and I want to tell you all when you follow the money trail all leads back to the Barrow family.”

LAURA TUCKER-LONGSWORTH, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE 

 “Honorable Member, I think you are right on the edge and I think you need to wrap up without further comments.”

KAREEM MUSA, AREA REP., CARIBBEAN SHORES 

“I am wrapping up Madam Speaker. All I am saying Madam Speaker is to advise the Prime Minister with a motion like this in the words of Damian Marley” be careful who you nail on the cross”.

DEAN BARROW, PRIME MINISTER OF BELIZE 

It seems unquenchable thirst for trying to attack members of my family and in particular my son Anwar. I think he extends it from time to time with my other son as well. Just let me be done with you once and for all. Was it nepotism when your father made your brother the head of Niche; was that nepotism and would you tell the public whether your mother still controls BCVI and your wife still works for that same BCVI then it appears that you are an expert; nepotism is not just confined to government. I can see then I can understand on the basis of which you seek to talk about nepotism obviously you are an expert.”

The loan will be repaid within nine years after a three year grace period.
