Highlights — 16 May 2014 — by Adele Ramos

Amandala has received information that a major audit exercise, probing into the issuance of Belizean passports by the Immigration Department, is nearing conclusion, and the full report should be concluded within a few weeks. There is no disclosure as yet on the findings of the comprehensive audit, which we understand came after irregularities were uncovered in the issuance of Belizean visas—for which a separate audit is being prepared.

What sparked the audit was a report that an officer from the Immigration Department was being reprimanded after allegations that some visas had gone missing as far back as 2012, although the matter came up for investigation in 2013.

Near the end of April 2014, a preliminary report on the passport audit was provided to Central Government; however, that report, as we understand it, was only intended to provide a preview to authorities of what is to follow in the coming weeks.
