PM Barrow talks Oil Prices, Referendum & Re-registration
Fuel prices, the referendum to take the Belize-Guatemala territorial dispute to the International Court of Justice, voter re-registration and who will succeed him as United Democratic Party leader going into the 2020 general elections were some of the hot topics Prime Minister Hon. Dean Barrow discussed at a press briefing held at the Belize Best Western Biltmore Plaza Hotel in Belize City on Wednesday morning, May 16th.
With fuel prices going up at midnight that same day, Barrow said the new prices at the pump are beyond the government’s control since the world price of oil is rising. He noted that the political situation in Venezuela and the economic and trade sanctions imposed on Venezuela has caused Belize to purchase fuel elsewhere, under not so favorable terms as existed under the PetroCaribe agreement with Venezuela.

Senator Val Throws Her Name In
Senator Valerie Woods made it official today: she will contest the PUP convention in the Albert Division and challenge her Senate colleague, care-taker Paul Thompson.
Woods went to the PUP headquarters at 3:00 this evening - one hour before the deadline - to submit her name and the required paperwork. In so doing she has ended two weeks of intense speculation, which has spawned a fair amount of inter-party tension and social media chatter. She told Daniel Ortiz why she's doing it:..
"What is your final decision at this time?"
Valerie Woods, aspirant - PUP Standard Bearer - Albert:
"I'll be contesting the Albert's Division for sure."
PUP Albert Committee Is All Paul
Woods is the challenger to Senator Paul Thompson who was endorsed as Standard Bearer in late 2014. Thompson said he'll grant us an interview next week, but in the meantime his committee is doing the talking for him. The Committee members sent a signed letter dated yesterday to Party Chairman Henry Usher saying that they give their, quote, "resolute and unwavering support" to Thompson as the party's Standard Bearer for Albert.
The letter also notes that Thompson was the campaign manager for the successful Belize City slate in the recent municipal elections.
The committee members conclude, quote, "we received overwhelming feedback from the voters that Senator Thompson is…the right leader for the division…" end quote.
Opposition Fury Over Fonso’s Facebook
And in other political news, 7News has learned that Opposition Leader John Briceno is trying to get a Supreme Court injunction against the Guardian's Editor - and UDP Mouthpiece - Alfonso Noble.

The trial without jury was before Justice Adolph Lucas and Crown Counsel Sheringe Rodriguez, relied on the statement of one eye witness James Noralez.
Chief Elections Officer Defends Her Reputation Against Claims of Wrongdoing
Earlier in the week, we gave you in depth coverage of the PUP's challenge to the March 2018 Municipal Elections in San Pedro. The PUP 7 of that island town is hoping that the Chief Justice will declare those elections void, and that new elections would be called.
As we told you, the PUP is complaining specifically about the manner in which the officials of the Elections and Boundaries Department carried out the election. They say that there were major discrepancies, which calls the result into question.
The two Elections and Boundaries officials being sued in this election petition are Catherine Cumberbatch, who was acting as the returning officer in San Pedro on that day, and Chief Elections Officer Josephine Tamai.

Daring Daylight Robbery
There was a daring armed robbery at the Courts Outlet, on Buttonwood Bay Boulevard yesterday afternoon. At around ten to three, two men entered the store. One of them pulled out a gun and went inside the manager's booth where he snatched $1,420 from the cash pan and then robbed three of the employees of their personal items. All that added up to another $5,500 in valuables. The men escaped and tonight, police have no suspects.
Con-Man Pretended To Be Rotarian On A Life Saving Mission
Police are looking for a con - man who pretended to be a rotarian fundraising for a dying child with cancer. But instead he ripped off at least one business of $1,700 dollars.
Police are looking for Michael Rodriguez, who they believe was the master mind of the scam. The bogus rotarian used the name Allan Usher and here's how he made the pitch to the Farmers Light Plant, a business in Spanish Lookout. We have a voice recording from the owner back in late April:
Voice of: Conning Victim:
"I want to tell you of a little situation. A man called me by the name of Allen Usher and asked if we would like to donate. They had a bad case with a child that had cancer, a 10 year old kid who had to go to Merida quick. He was saying that Tropic Air was sponsoring the flight and the only thing they needed was $5,000 but they already had $3,200..."

He has since been arraigned at the Independence Magistrate's Court and remanded.
Paying Tribute To Teachers
Today, teachers from all across Belize converged on the Civic Center for a mass celebration of teachers day.
For weeks, the status of the event was unclear because the BNTU was not able to pay their share towards the event but - in the end, it all worked out, with good old GOB footing the bill.
Sahar Vasquez stopped in got the vibe from some very happy teachers.
A few weeks ago chances of a teachers' day celebration seemed like a pipe dream, but today the spirit of celebration was genuine as Education Minister Patrick Faber Stood on the podium and chanted:
Hon. Patrick Faber, Minister of Education:
"There is nobody that can inspire us like great teachers can."
Union Pres Says Others Also Failed To “Come-Up”
As we told you, the BNTU was supposed to give a third of the funds to sponsor the event. BNTU President Elena Smith said they weren't the only ones who couldn't "come-up" as requested:...
Hon. Elena Smith, BNTU President:
"BNTU made no contributions towards but please I want to make it clear. It is not only the BNTU that said they could not contribute. We were informed again at a meeting that managers said they were unable to contribute but they were asked to give whatever little they could give whether that was done we are not aware o both groups had some difficulty in contributing towards today."
Travane Trapp For Weed
A hospital attendant has to pay a $3,000 fine after police caught him carrying 7 and a half pounds of weed in compressed parcels. MIT personnel searched 20 year old Travane Trapp and found the stash on him. He was charged with drug trafficking, and taken to court where he pleaded guilty and was fined $3,000.
He has up until October 31st to pay.
The Placencia Airport Hustle
It made news earlier this week when 48 year old US Investment Fund Manager Brent Borland was charged with multiple counts of securities fraud. It's related to Belize, because he's accused of tricking investors to front 21.9 million dollars in bridge financing for an International Airport project in Placencia.
Jules Vasquez did a deeper dig:...
The only time we saw the Placencia Airport in use was in December of 2014 when a SICA Summit was held in Belize.
But, this man - Brent Borland - seen here at what looks to be the very same airport - was using it as an investment package.
Breaking Down The Domestic Violence Act
The Domestic Violence Act certainly doesn't qualify as light or leisurely reading - and that's why RET international is working on making the act a bit more accessible to the public by breaking down the heavy law language in lay man's terms. RET and their team met today at the National Women's Commission office to start looking through the document. Here's more from there meeting.
Thandiwe Diego, RET International Youth Ambassador:
"So the event here at RET, here at National Woman's Commission is a collaboration between the National Women's Commission and RET International in Belize and myself the RET International Youth Ambassador. So what we are doing is we are taking the Domestic Violence Act and with youth together we are translating the act into language that is more understandable to the general public especially youth."
Desiigner In Belize
You've probably seen the ad for music week 2018 - and there have been a number of activities since Monday, plus last night the performances began at the Civic with a line-up of Belizean artists.
It's celebrated as one of the biggest music events in Belize. Everyone who is somebody on the music scene in Belize will hit the stage. But international artists such as American Rapper Desiigner among many others will also be performing. Desiigner is well known for the song "Panda" - a rap sensation. Today we spoke with Desiigner and his manager at the airport and they told us their visit goes beyond the music -it's about honoring their slain loved one and friend Fareed Ahmad.
