Let the DPP investigate Penner

Dear Editor,

If all the allegations that I have read about Hon. Alvin Penner and the passport scandal have some merit, the Prime Minister should refer the case to the Director of Public Prosecutions Office and have him or her investigate this matter fully.

Belizeans who possess dual citizenships who are natural-born Belizean citizens and live in the United States are currently waiting as long as three months to get their passports back from Belize, while we have an elected Minister of Government allegedly involved in helping to illegally facilitate the process to assist a foreign-born individual who is not qualified as a citizen of our country to get one of our passports from our country.

I am upset to my stomach to hear these things happening in my beloved country of Belize on our Independence Day.

What is the sense in celebrating our independence when we continue to deny our natural-born citizens of our country some of their basic fundamental rights as citizens of our country and then we continue to grant those rights and privileges to people of other countries?
