And today the man in the hot seat defended himself via a public statement. In the release Senator Ashley Rocke declared that he did not go against the churches but rather ‘sided’ with the country as he is of the belief that his decision is for the betterment of Belize in a whole.
Rocke states that in the Senate yesterday the leader of Government business, Hon. Godwin Hulse presented a more convincing motion than that of the member from the opposition, hence the reason why he sided with Government at the end of the debate as he believes that the counter proposal made way for a more integrated tactic to launch the much requested investigation at the Immigration Department.
Rocke also highlighted that, and we quote “In my humble opinion I am not sure if there was a difference since they both would have satisfied the Church's need for the investigation. I would never support "No investigation" I believe the nation deserves it.” End of quote.
