Assets Will Be Put in Trust for the P.U.P.

John Briceño

Today’s swearing in was done at Independence Hall, the traditional and emotional home of the People’s United Party. But emotion aside, the assets of the Party, including Independence Hall, the Belize Times and Positive Vibes are privately owned by principals within the Party. It created no end of discomfort from 2008 when 2011 when Briceño as leader was little more than a tenant and caretaker of those assets. That too is going to be different this time around, says Briceño.

 

John Briceño, Leader, People’s United Party

“Even before the Convention on Sunday I met with the Right Honorable Said Musa and he assured me that whoever was to win the convention they would have complete and free access to the assets. Yesterday I had a meeting with the Honorable former party leader, Francis Fonseca and he was the one that brought it up to me and said that it is time for us to address the issues of the assets and yes that we can use the assets but we have to make sure that it is tidied up and that we can put it in a trust. I met with the Right Honorable said Musa yesterday morning and he was the one that brought up the issue of the assets and he was the one that suggested that we need to take all the party assets and put it into a trust for the People’s United Party so that there can be no question as to who own these assets and that they belong to the rightful owners of the P.U.P. who are the supporters of the People’s United Party.”

 

Where the issue of Senators is concerned, P.U.P. Leader John Briceño today confirmed that the decisions in that regard will be made after he is sworn in as Opposition Leader. We’ll have more from Briceño later in the newscast.
