Minister Doesn’t Exactly Deny Accusations…

Despite being up that proverbial creek without a paddle, Faber has both hands in the water and is churning up a storm. Interestingly, while the report speaks about the Minister of Education choking a young woman and punching her in the face twice, Faber maintains that he is an upstanding citizen, and in his opinion, any attempt to smear his character is very difficult.

 

Patrick Faber, Minister of Education

“It’s very difficult to do that. I try to be upstanding in all that I do. And as I’ve said, the matter that occurred is a private matter. It is only public if there is an issue with the Police. There is no such issue any longer. And I hope that people and you in the media will respect that.”

 

Reporter

“Could it be that it’s no longer an issue because of your very own intervention?”

“Not at all! I did not intervene in the matter in the way that people, or that you are suggesting at all. As far as I know the reason why it was withdrawn is because in the first place it did not happen in the manner in which it was reported.”

 

Reporter

“Can you say how exactly it happened? Did you hit anyone?”

 

Patrick Faber

“No I won’t. I said I would not get into the details for the matter of the friendship that exists. We do not have any kind of animosity and I want it to stay that way.”

 

Reporter

“Categorically…did you hit the young lady?”

 

Patrick Faber

“I’m saying it did not happen in the manner in which it was reported.”

 

Reporter

“Which means her employment is not at all threatened?”

 

Patrick Faber

“But why would that come into it? As far as I know there is no…she does not work in my immediate office…let me say that first of all, but there is no crime in that. Certainly if it is that Jules Vasquez was indicating just now that I may have had some kind of inappropriate relationship with her from the time she was very young, man that’s nonsense. That’s absolute nonsense.”

 

Reporter

“I wasn’t implying that sir. I’m just saying that it indicates that it is a long friendship…I am saying at the age of consent. She claims to have been in your bedroom on the night of her birthday party. Is it appropriate for you as Minister to be having a birthday party with a staffer who has known you from a young age and no doubt, I would imagine, would look up to you?”

 

Patrick Faber

“You as well as I know that there’s nothing illegal, nothing inappropriate…you’re asking the question to fish the details out of me. Gentlemen and ladies I will now end this.”

    Countrymen and lady citizens please end this now!

    Flush the toilet on Ali’s turds. Recall the whole bunch. They are only destroying Belize.

    It is a shame how this poor and gready girls will do anything for money. Faber is old and ugly and on top of that a woman beater. And likes under age girls. That is why he gives them scholarship. You have to have sex with him to get one. For guys like him he is a hero. I wonder what the ladies think of him? Are they going to give him their votes? I hope not.
