‘Normal’ Communication Between Soldier and Person Found with Stolen Disposed Equipment

John Saldivar

The Ministry of Finance continues to investigate how a significant quantity of outdated military equipment scheduled for disposal ended up in the hands of three civilians, including a Mexican national. As it relates to the Belize Defence Force, a senior officer from the Air Wing was found to have communicated with one of the men involved in the matter. But it has been determined that the communication, according to Defence Minister John Saldivar, had nothing to do with the stolen items and so the investigation from that end has been closed.

“That matter is with the Ministry of Finance; I can’t tell you exactly how it has concluded. But we certainly have concluded that there is nothing wrong with the messages that were exchanged with the Air Wing people. Those were normal messages that had absolutely nothing to do with any illegal activity.”
