Investigations by The San Pedro Sun have revealed that two students and one teacher from the American Global University School of Medicine (AGUSM) were detained Thursday evening, February 2nd, at the San Pedro Police Department and later transferred to the Immigration Department Office in San Pedro.

Sources stated that an investigation was conducted on the AGUSM premises by immigration officials from Belize City following information received regarding discrepancies of proper documentation. Investigations led to the discovery that two medical students were in the country without proper documentation (no student visas) and one professor was not in possession of a work permit.

Statement by American Global University School of Medicine with respect to immigration incident


American Global University School of Medicine wishes to provide a statement with respect to a recent incident which occurred in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye involving the Department of Immigration and two enrolled medical students, a faculty member, and a campus employee. A former disgruntled employee, Floyd Jackson whose employment was terminated last semester due to providing false employment credentials to AGUSM and for not facilitating the required medical course curriculum in the classroom provided false statements to the Department of Immigration in San Pedro regarding immigration documentation of students and faculty.

Upon receiving this complaint, the San Pedro Immigration Department sent investigators to the AGUSM Campus. Upon their arrival on campus the AGUSM staff, students and faculty cooperated to the full extent with the immigration officers. There were questions regarding one of the faculty members and two of the medical studentís permits. These three individuals were taken to the San Pedro Immigration Department and placed into custody until their documents could be verified. Upon communication and clarification of documentation from the Belmopan and Belize City Immigration Department Offices, the individuals being detained were released from custody and no charges were filed against these individuals or American Global University School of Medicine.

If you wish to receive further information or clarification with respect to any of the statements provided, please feel free to contact American Global University School of Medicine directly and we will be more than happy to provide any further clarification.
