What’s next for the Leadership Intervention Unit?
The sudden passing of William Dawson this morning has many people asking “what’s next for the Leadership Intervention Unit?” The Ministry of Home Affairs has always seen Dawson’s contributions to minimise crime and violence as top-notch and by all accounts, his death leaves a huge gap. When asked about the future of the LIU and who takes up the mantle next, Minister Kareem Musa had this to say.
Hon. Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries: “We do have structures in place. I will be asking Dr. Rosado and the commissioner if Dr. Rosado can come back to Belize City at least for a 2-month or three month period to work along with brother Nuri who is also a part of the LIU, to work with other individuals who have been helping us along the way to see how it is that we can try to fill in those gaps and like I said while it is we are not likely to find an equal replacement perhaps we can find two or three individuals that can multitask and can make themselves available and efficient the way that Mr. Dawson did. But certainly we cannot let the legacy and the vision of Mr. Dawson pass, that is something that we owe it to him to honor him and to continue with the path that he has led us on because he’s not just a colleague and a brother he is our leader.”
