The Validation Bill went through its three readings yesterday in the Sitting of the House which concluded at around ten o’clock last night.  As a correction to our story yesterday, the Validation Bill has only to do with the six contracts that were not tabled in the House of Representatives within the 30 days as is required by Section 19 Subsection 6 of the Substantive Laws of Belize.  According to this section, contracts exceeding five million dollars should be paid within one month of its execution and the house should examine the contracts to ensure compliance in accordance with Subsection 5 that speaks to the open tender procedure.

The Bill went through three readings yesterday.  Leader of the Opposition, John Briceno objected to the rushing of the Bill and asked the Prime Minister to rethink the expediting of the Validation Bill.

The Bill will go to the Senate for ratification on Tuesday, March 10.
