Screen_Shot_2019-08-21_at_7.49.23_PMLast week, we had reported on the controversial write-off of a $40,000-study scholarship to Joshua Perdomo, the son of former UDP Minister Carlos Perdomo, to pursue a Master’s Degree in Forensic Genetics at the University of North Texas back in 2011.


Perdomo completed the studies but never returned to Belize to report to duty.

There has been some public outcry against the move by Government. Deputy Prime Minister Patrick Faber, who was present at the House Sitting when the motion was introduced and approved, was asked about the decision last week, and he claimed that he did not know about the write-off, nor that Joshua Perdomo was the son of the former UDP Minister.


While Faber’s claim is suspect, persons who are against the motion can let their opposition be known tomorrow when the Finance and Economic Development Committee meets tomorrow August 27th at 2pm in Belmopan to consider the motion and pass a resolution.
