|The convicted felon Rafic Labboun|
is Wilhelm Dyck on forged
Labboun stole a Belizean Mennonite identity, Wilhelm Dyck, with assistance from personnel from the Vital Statistics Unit. He then applied for a Belizean passport under that false identity and obtained the travel document easily from the Belize City passport office. And then he travelled to Belmopan where the Mayor’s son-in-law, Traffic Manager Kevin Jones, personally processed his first time driver’s license even after the cut-off time had passed.
Information to the BELIZE TIMES indicates that Labboun also obtained a fake Social Security Card, which may require an investigation of that office as well.

And while the investigations into that one case continue, more immigration red flags are surfacing. There is the case of one Fidel Garcia who has a passport addressed at Barrack Road, but there is not such person with that name living on Barrack Road. A series of Lebanese-owned stores do adorn Barrack Road.
There is also the case of Visas issued to questionable persons travelling from Nepal and India. The businessmen travel to Belize through Central and South America and claim their trip is paid for by a certain store in San Ignacio Town.
