Belize City, Belize (April 29th, 2013)
In response to a news report of April 26th, 2013 on Channel 5 regarding an allegation of unpaid overtime being made by some former KHMH security employees, the KHMH Administration advises that all legitimate outstanding claims by these former employees were settled at the time of their redundancy in March of this year.

However, in February of 2013 retroactive claims were submitted on behalf of several former security staff. Correct procedure was not adhered to regarding these late submissions, which went as far back as December 2011, as the supporting attachments were not on the proper claim forms, were not signed and dated by the claimants and were not certified by their supervisors.

These questionable claims have been subjected to internal audit and the outcome forwarded to the KHMHA Audit Committee. A decision by the Committee regarding the validity of these claims and any payments to be made is still pending.
