Opposition Leader says Government have allowed politics to over-ride national interest

When we caught up with Leader of the Opposition Hon. Francis Fonseca earlier today, we asked him about his views on the recent destruction of the Noh Mul mound in Orange Walk. The PUP leader slammed Government for allowing politics to get in the way of the national interest.

Francis Fonseca – PUP Leader:
vlcsnap-2013-05-29-19h53m15s112I think they’re both obviously very, very serious matters.  I think the Noh Mul incident speaks to corruption at the highest levels of Government.  I think putting money and politics ahead of the national interest, in this case obviously a priceless archeological Mayan site and mound being destroyed, in the interests of advancing political interests in the North of Belize.   That is a serious matter.  we expect a proper and full investigation by the Police into the matter, and the relevant authorities, and we expect that the DPP will act accordingly.
