Another delay in PetroCaribe Case

PUP ON PETROCARIBE

The Chief Justice, Kenneth Benjamin has delayed his judgment on the PetroCaribe case between People’s United Party leader, John Briceno and Prime Minister, Dean Barrow. The case has to do with the government’s use of 1.3 Billion Dollars of Petrocaribe monies for what the PUP feels there was inadequate accountability to Parliament.

The Chief Justice, Kenneth Benjamin has delayed his judgment on the PetroCaribe case between People’s United Party leader, John Briceno and Prime Minister, Dean Barrow. The case has to do with the government’s use of 1.3 Billion Dollars of Petrocaribe monies for what the PUP feels there was inadequate accountability to Parliament. The party is claiming that the actions taken by the government are in violation of the Finance and Audit Reform Act and in violation of the Constitution of Belize. The two parties were to be present in court for a judgment yesterday but according to Briceno, they were disappointed when they received word of the delay in judgment as the Chief Justice took a week of sick leave.

Hon. John Briceno, Opposition Leader: “We were disappointed to be informed that the Chief Justice informed us that he is not ready to give his judgment today. I know they informed our lawyer that on Monday they will tell us when they will be able to give a judgment so we just have to wait, unfortunately.”

Reporter: Is it frustrating sir? 

Hon. John Briceno, Opposition Leader: “Extremely frustrating because the evidence is very clear that the government broke the law, it was unconstitutional what they did, even the government’s attorney admitted that there was wrong doing and that these monies were spent without the prior approval of parliament.”

Briceno noted that the Chief Justice indicated that a judgment date will be set on Monday.
