By Aaron Humes: A shocking claim has been made by Human Development Minister Dolores Balderamos Garcia regarding the reasons Belize’s COVID-19 cash transfer program was closed in August.
The minister told reporters that people in Digi uniforms were allegedly seen disabling cameras and the alarm system to steal a safe from a building in Ladyville, Belize District.
Faced with this, said the minister, she conceded that “money is the root of all evil, at least cash”, and thus put an end to this temporary project. (The regular BOOST and Boost-Plus programs continue.)
Balderamos Garcia said she was not aware of any reported misappropriation of assistance program funds by people from the Ministry of Labor.
The police would investigate. We will follow up and report on the status of this investigation at a later date.
