Please permit me to offer my sentiments on the report made in your newspaper, the Amandala, dated Sunday, January 29, 2017 titled: “Ashcroft Goes for Belize’s Jugular”.
I wish to remind Belizeans, both in Government and Opposition, that like the late Hon. Philip Goldson, who coined the words: “The time to save your country is before you lose it”; I, as a born and bred Belizean, say that our Government of the UDP, the PUP and all others who cherish our beloved patrimony of Belize should tell Michael Ashcroft that enough is enough.
We are committed to pay for BTL, a company that is once again Belizean owned. However, the rich Michael Ashcroft is getting richer, sending all his riches and gains out of the country – his nest in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and now he is after not only our bread, but the crumbs as well. Ashcroft is a traitor to Belize and Belizeans, and going for our “jugular,” he is becoming treacherous and he has to be stopped.
On behalf of all Belizeans, I recommend to all members of both Houses – Representatives and Senate, that a bill be introduced and passed to REVOKE the Belizean citizenship of Michael Ashcroft, if he is an expatriate citizen, in accordance with Part lll Section 28 (1) (b) of the Belize Constitution as updated to June 2010.
Lastly, I call on Senator Eamon Courtney to resign from the Senate, as he, being Ashcroft’s Belizean attorney, has a conflict of interest by being an instrument for Ashcroft, ignoring our courts and helping him to plunder the assets of our Belizean taxpayers by us having to provide legal representation in foreign courts.
