We’ve covered the visa scam in which it is reported that government ministers are using a quota system, which the prime minister says could cause the fall of his government. But in the passport scandal, three public officers have been sent home; the suspension of the most senior member has been extended to five months at half pay.

 

The C.E.O. of Immigration, Candelaria Saldivar confirmed that throughout the entire administrative investigation nobody looked at Elvin Penner. And even now, the only file under scrutiny is the Kim file. And after the PM’s press conference on the Citrus Industry issues, the media caught up with Godwin Hulse and asked him a slew of questions as it pertain to the investigation of the Citizen Kim fiasco and the passport scandal.

“Categorically, whether I am there or not, none of the officers, none of the officers can ever use the excuse that they had pressure from a minister.  Let me tell you this, and please show it on tonight’s news, on Thursday the fifth of September at 4:05 exactly I had Ms. Marin, the Director, or the deputy but she is holding Director, CEO Mrs. Candelaria Saldivar and Ms. Sharron Neal in my office, reason was that Ms. Neal, that Mrs. Marin was going on a few days leave and would have returned on Wednesday, so I brought Ms. Neal in to make sure she understood she had my full unequivocal support, indeed in that discussion she said Minister I am relieved because I wouldn’t want to but I said Ms. Neal if it is God, if it is the Prime Minister, if it is no matter who it is, ever comes to you with any nonsense including Minister Penner please call me, I didn’t say brace, I said call me and I will forthwith deal with it and Ms. Marin said I can support that because whenever I’ve called the minister with anything and yes there are minister that go to the immigration want you to do your work please bring this and she call me and I said Ms. Marin brakes the minister and I will deal with him in Cabinet and so she said I can assure Ms. Neal you have the Minister support, every officer knows that, Ms. Pacheco knows that, Mr. Wade knows that so there is no excuse that there was pressure from the minister because all they had to do is call me and they knew that and perhaps that is the intimidating presence that the attorneys don’t want me to be because I will say that but I have now said it on the media.”


We’ll keep following this story.
