Holding Company for Developer Formed Just 1 Year Ago

The criminal past of Jorge Abraham Jaen, the Miami investor behind the multi-million dollar investment in the Basil Jones Airstrip to convert it into a full-scale international airport, continues to unravel. News Five has received copies of the Articles of Association for International Airport Alliance LLC, the apparent parent company of International Airport Alliance Belize Limited, based in Doral, Florida with a mailing address in Miami. The company was registered in October 2016. Jaen is listed as registered agent and manager along with one John Smith. With just over a year in existence, it lists the company’s business as development and management of airports and hotel resorts and promotion of entertainment events. There is no record of the several international airports, including one in Curacao, named recently by Tourism Minister Manuel Heredia Junior as being part of the I.A.A. group’s work.  Jaen, as previously noted, has serious criminal convictions for such things as voter fraud, conspiracy to commit extortion and grand theft and obtaining property or credit through false statements.  For its part, I.A.A. Belize has said that in respect of the allegations coming out of the 2006 Miami Dade County Inspector General’s investigations, Jaen was not prosecuted. I.A.A. sent out a copy of the commendation received by Jaen from the office of former Miami city mayor Tomas Regalado for services to the community, which does not appear in the mayor’s schedule.  We were also directed to a link to what is purportedly a website for I.A.A., but there is very little information to be had about its projects and Jaen is not even mentioned by name. We will continue to follow this story.

    thank you for continuing to follow this scam. Belizeans need to stop this “project” which will only make us look like fools and cause potential investors to run.
