LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION BRIEFS THE DIPOLMATIC CORPS ON THE TRUE STATE OF THE NATION

Today at the Biltmore Plaza Hotel, the Leader of the Opposition Honorable John Briceño briefed the Resident and Non-resident Ambassadors and other members of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps in Belize on the true state of the Nation.

At this historic event, diplomats were briefed on the rampant  corruption in public office, the refusal of the Government to allow the Public Accounts Committee and the Integrity Commission to perform their proper functions to ensure transparency and accountability, the threat to our democracy by the armed forces attacking the media and the members of Opposition at peaceful demonstrations, the unconstitutional appointment to the Court of Appeal, the abundant challenges facing the agro-productive sector and business community in general who continue to suffer the impact of the ever increasing cost of fuel, and an economy that is plagued with anemic growth and a debt that has increased to 100% of GDP.

The Leader of the Opposition also addressed recent developments surrounding Belize and Guatemala, and expressed his Party’s continued dissatisfaction with the Government’s handling of Belize Guatemala relations by the Government.
