Attorney General Excluded from Drafting Definitive Agreement Legislation

Attorney General Excluded from Drafting Definitive Agreement Legislation

Another finding over this Definitive Agreement was that the Attorney General was never consulted with the draft legislation required for the Definitive Agreement to push through.  Prime Minister responded to this angle, saying that they did work with an independent attorney.

Hon. John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “We have to bring in other lawyers to come in and assist government that happens from Said Musa days, Dean Barrow days, to presently right now. As well know that the Attorney General’s Ministry is overwhelmed and they can’t keep up with all the work so from time to time we do get other people to come in and help and that’s what simply happened. We’re not hiding anything after the Attorney General was in Cabinet when she saw the document.”

Reporter: But was she aware ? Was she the one who assigned and said well okay we can’t handle it in house we’ll send it to someone else ?

Hon. John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “No many instances the ministries themselves when they would find out that we need to get something very quickly done then we would then decide whether we need to go to the Attorney General’s office or go with, the point is nothing was being we’re not hiding anything from anybody. The Attorney General had a chance to take a look at the paper.”

One point that was not presented to the Prime Minister is how and why the Belize Port Authority was not consulted on the Port of Magical agreement.
