Belize-National Evangelic Asso. Against Marijuana Legalization

Belmopan, Aug 21 (Prensa Latina)The National Evangelic Association of Belize (NEAB) criticized today the draft bill project of the Belizean government to decriminalize the possession of cannabis or marijuana.

The fact occurred 72 hours after the Belize Prime Minister Dean Barrow would send the Committee on Health and Human Development, the currently criticized draft.

In the case of being passed the document, this country would allow to consume or possess marijuana in quantities which not exceed 10 grams or less than a half of an ounce. Similar experiments to decriminalize marijuana in the US failed, remembered the leader of NEAB, Louis Wade.

NEAB’s opinion is argued on the Drug Control Council that a couple of years ago they were against the idea because structures to control the measure were not in place in the country yet.

Barrow recognizes that the document given to the legislative is controversial but he trusts that it will be passed in spite of churches’ opposition, according to the website Caribbean News Service.

Successful Joint Operation with Cayman Islands immigration, customs and police officers


On Friday, 21 August 2017 a successful joint tactical operation was initiated by immigration, customs and police officers resulting in a drug bust and an arrest.

In the early afternoon officers with the Immigration Enforcement Division discovered that illegal persons were residing and concealing drugs in the Windsor Park area.

Immigration officers then contacted Her Majesty’s Customs and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force and Tactical Firearms Unit to assist in the planned operation. Within two hours the joint operation was developed and conducted by all three agencies.

Search warrants were executed during the joint operation, which led to the recovery of several packages of marijuana concealed in various locations and the arrest of one male Jamaican national on suspicion of illegal landing and possession of marijuana.

Leaders with the Department of Immigration commend HM Customs and RCIPS Officers on their rapid response time and their professionalism throughout the evening.

“I would like to thank the HM Customs and RCIPS Officers for their commitment to this operation, which ultimately has made the community safer both through the removal of these drugs and the arrest of the individual,” Deputy Chief Immigration Officer of Enforcement, Mr. Garfield Wong said. “It is important that Cayman Islands law enforcement agencies continue to work together and share intelligence to disrupt and dismantle crime.”

Anyone with information about immigration related offences are urged to contact the confidential information hotline at 1-800-LegalIm (1-800-534-2546), or email [email protected]

Bermuda: Island passes crucial Global Forum test

From The Royal Gazette

Welcomed rating: Premier and Minister of Finance David Burt

Bermuda has passed a crucial test in winning international approval of its tax information exchange practices with other jurisdictions.

The island was rated by The Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes as “largely compliant” — maintaining the level of compliance it achieved during a previous assessment in 2013.

The enhanced assessment focused on “the availability of and access by tax authorities to beneficial ownership information of all legal entities and arrangements”, according to the Global Forum website.

Bermuda’s largely compliant status was also achieved by Canada, Australia, Cayman Islands, Germany and Qatar, while three jurisdictions — Ireland, Mauritius and Norway — were “compliant”.

David Burt, the Premier and Minister of Finance, praised the work of government officials in achieving the standard.

“This is tremendous news and excellent for Bermuda,” Mr Burt said. “My thanks to all involved in securing this important outcome.

“This result is a testament to the hard work of the team in the Ministry of Finance.

“With an impending European Union blacklist on the horizon, this was one of the important tests that Bermuda had to pass.

“It is good news for local industry, boosting confidence in Bermuda as an international business centre. A bad rating would have most certainly guaranteed Bermuda to be blacklisted by the EU, and it is through Bermuda’s commitment to compliance that we can avoid such a result.”

The new round of peer reviews — launched in mid-2016 — followed a six-year process during which the Global Forum assessed the legal and regulatory framework for information exchange (Phase 1) as well as the actual practices and procedures (Phase 2) in 119 jurisdictions worldwide.

The Global Forum is the continuation of a forum which was created in the early 2000s in the context of the OECD’s work to address the risks to tax compliance posed by non-co-operative jurisdictions.

The original members of the Global Forum consisted of OECD countries and jurisdictions that had agreed to implement transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes. The Global Forum was restructured in September 2009 in response to the G20 call to strengthen implementation of these standards.
