Vega Says He Did Not Receive Money from Mason

Gaspar Vega

The former DPM could not say when exactly he met Mason, but was emphatic that he did not receive any monies from the accused murderer for campaign financing or other political activities.

 

Reporter

“Was it in the sense of political campaigning, trying to get financing from him?”

 

Gaspar Vega, Former DPM

“No, never. Never.”

 

Reporter

“Did you visit him alone or with someone else?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“I think I visited with someone else, but it’s been some time and like I said I didn’t give it that much importance.”

 

Reporter

“Have you ever received campaign financing from him?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“No.”

 

Reporter

“When you spoke with him, what name did he introduce himself as?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“I think it was Danny.”

 

Reporter

“Just Danny. And what did you know about this Danny?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“Just that he is an investor that just came into Belize and that was it.”

 

Reporter

“From those two times that you met with Mason did you have any doubts as to his identity or as to who he was saying he was?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“I didn’t give it much importance; it was a brief meeting and that was it. I’ve met a lot of people in being Minister of Agriculture, Minister of Lands, Deputy Prime Minister and if I tell you I can recall every meeting, I would be lying.”

 

Reporter

“So you just went to have drinks with this gentleman a couple of times?”

 

Gaspar Vega

“I was invited. I don’t even remember to be sincere who had invited me because I was trying to recall because I knew you guys would be here today. But not even that because it wasn’t to me that important.”
