Of Masters and Their Slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." ―Ayn Rand

The Immigration supervisor who reportedly approved the passport application of alleged Hezbollah terrorist, Rafic Mohammad Labboun Allaboun, without the provision of pictures has reportedly given a statement to the police.  Love News has confirmed with the Government’s spokesman, Delroy Cuthkelvin that Gilroy Guzman, who is stationed at the Belize City Immigration Office, told police in the presence of his attorney, that he approved Labboun’s passport application after Labboun showed him a Belize Social Security card.  But what is not clear is whether Guzman made a copy of that card, as would be expected.

Labboun (Allaboun), as we have reported, is the man who, on August thirtieth, acquired a Belizean passport, after having paid for expedited services the day before.  As it turns out, the investigation has so far unearthed that when Labboun applied to the Vital Statistical Unit of the Registry Department for a copy of a birth certificate for a deceased child, that application as well either disappeared from the records or was never entered, similar to the passport application he made.

Labboun (Allaboun), who also acquired a forged driver’s license from the Belmopan City Council’s Licensing Authority, was allegedly trying to steal the identity of the deceased Mennonite child, Wilhelm Dyck, who died at the age of two months in 1976.  Love News understands that it was Labboun (Allaboun) himself to visited the Immigration office on August twenty ninth to apply for and on the following day received the newly issued passport in the name of Wilhelm Dyck.  The matter has become a full fledge Crimes Investigations Branch investigation which is looking at possibly other persons in the Immigration, Vital Statistics, Social Security Board and Belmopan City Council’s Licensing Authority, whose license issued to Labboun bears a number series still not being used in their system.  The investigation is also looking at how this license was issued when that Authority had established that their number series up to that point of the issuance only ran up to the eleven thousand range.  Labboun’s license bears a series in the twelve thousand range.

Labboun (Allaboun), reportedly travelled to Mexico after he acquired his Belizean passport, met with Yasser Safa and George Abdallah Elters, two Belizeans.  Mexican authorities now have interests in Yasser Safa, along with Safa’s brother, Samir Safa, for irregularities surrounding documentation they have shown that have raised their suspicion.  According to information Love News has picked up, Yasser Safa is already in Mexican police custody while they close in on the other Safa on allegations that they possess Mexican immigrant and tourist status.  While this is happening, Belizean authorities are also looking to see if the two men, who are also naturalized Belizeans, can be deported back to Belize to help with the local investigation of Labboun.  El Diario de Quintana Roo also states that quote,  “…the U.S. Embassy in Mexico found evidence in Chetumal and Belize, at least in 2009, there was presence of radical Islamic groups such as Hezbollah.  According to information from the U.S. diplomatic corps, Hezbollah cells in that year would have used the same routes of drug trafficking and undocumented to reach northern neighbor.”  Love News will continue to follow this story as it develops.
