Chairman of Social Security Board resigns from his post

The Chairman of the Social Security Board (SSB) Doug Singh has tendered his resignation to the Prime Minister of Belize.  The letter was sent just after five o’clock this evening. The letter comes a few hours after Singh returned a call to a local reporter who began discussions with him over the delay in payments from SSB. 

The Chairman of the Social Security Board (SSB) Doug Singh has tendered his resignation to the Prime Minister of Belize.  The letter was sent just after five o’clock this evening. The letter comes a few hours after Singh returned a call to a local reporter who began discussions with him over the delay in payments from SSB.  The discussion was a candid one and entailed the personal opinions of Singh and not in his capacity as the Chairman of the SSB.  That twenty-minute conversation was recorded without Singh’s knowledge and then forwarded to several persons subsequently becoming viral.  In the conversation, Singh compared Belize to other economies saying that while the US and other countries are taking weeks and months to provide financial aid to its citizens, personnel are working overtime in processing payments.  He added that Belizeans who are on the receiving end should be lucky that the Government is pushing to help the citizenry.  In that conversation, Singh asked the reporter to be balanced in his reporting and let it be known that efforts are being made to disburse the monies to the unemployed.  It was clear from the recording that Singh was not speaking in a professional capacity and was giving his personal views using some expletives.  Love News confirmed with Singh just before our newscast that he was unaware that he was being recorded and he had merely returned a missed call when the conversation began.  Singh has also resigned as the Chairman for the Elections and Boundaries Department and a Director of Belize Telemedia Limited.  Love News understands that Singh will be seeking legal recourse on this matter.
