Yasser Safa says he and family members are innocent of allegations

Yasser Safa

As the details unravel, it has been confirmed that up to six Belizeans were detained during the raid in Merida. In addition to Samer Safa, George Abdalah Elders, Yasser Safa, his wife and two children were also detained. Yasser and his family have been released. He spoke to News Five via phone on Tuesday and he said although his name has been involved in various activities in the past, he is no terrorist and he doesn’t know anything of Allaboun’s experience or contacts in Belize.

“Yasser, your name has been tarnished; to say the least on the news. What would you want to say to the people in Belize who do know you or are wondering about you?”

 

Via Phone: Yasser Safa, Says He’s NOT a Terrorist

“They know me well. I gone to Panama, I get a problem one time six years ago. They said I get touch with drugs. What did they prove I get catch with drugs? I noh gone to jail; I gone to jail and I come out free. I come out with no evidence; that is the crime I get with. other than that, I have no crime in Belize, never kill nobody, never involve with no terrorist, never involve with no drugs in Belize; nothing. All my life is clean in Belize. What my brother, Samer, did in past; that is my brother. What my brother, Ali, did in past; that’s my brother too. I noh have nothing to do with it. Make the government, make the police bring the proof what I did bad in Belize; what the crime I did in Belize.”

“Yasser so essentially you are saying that you don’t have no information that can help the U.S. government at least in investigating the whereabouts of how this man got this Belizean passport. You know nothing of that.”

“I no have nothing, nothing about this man. I noh know nothing about him; how he get it; if his family is Belizean, his mother, his dad. I noh know, he lives in the U.S. over twenty-eight years, his family American—I know now because I see the news—his wife American, his baby American. I noh know how he got Belize passport; I noh know.”

 

From what we gather, Yasser’s wife and children are already back in Belize. Yasser is said to be in Merida, where Samer is detained.

    I have heard that the Corozal Free Zone has a lot of Labanese businessman (terrorist sleeper cells) operating many stores in the zone. Some of these persons own up to 10 or 15 stores.

  2. Storm says:

    I think he protests too much.

  3. verymad says:

    Amnesia? Do you really think that we are stupid?. He cross the border with this man he had to show his passport at the border. And he didnt notice?. You are coverying this terrorist. Your name clean in Belize?. You and your brothers should get your @&& kicked out of Belize. Having a Belizean wife and kid will not save you out of this. If your wife whants to follow better because she is part of it. Go back to Lebanon. We dont like or suport terrorist in Belize.

  4. O.W says:

    You actually trying to tell me that he just midi “heng” with that terrorist guy? How in the world he nuh a know that; that guy was a terrorist and he was staying at his house? Lock he up and ship him back.

  5. JahKid says:

    There are honest Arabs here but you piece of $#!%, get out of Belize or terror will fall upon you. We barely could live with our local terrorists and now you come here with your stupidity. Better run from yah, take along your family too or suffer the consequences.

  6. Belizean Sun says:

    Leave the man alone. We have enough ‘terrorists’ in our back yard. Until the police can prove he’s done wrong then you can judge him.
    And don’t give me stick for having his back. My opinion

  7. Liberty and Freedom says:

    He was “caught” in Panama for selling drugs? They could not prove anything? He must think everyone is stupid. You can pay off the Panamanian police like you can pay off corrupt police in Belize. I do not know this man – right. Just like Bill Clinton said about Monica Lewinsky “I never had sex with that woman”.
    They need to turn him over to the DEA anf the FBI and investigate his entire history including travel, weapons , contacts. etc.

  8. missing the motherland says:

    who is he married to?

  9. Biggup bwai says:

    Guys, get up and WAKE to yourselves. You cant judge someone without knowing what the hell di go ann. The man detained and released. If he really did something, then why was he released? Inna his interview, he say that the terrorist guy was at his house because of a party , but that no mean that he da wa terrorist. And remember when US is in it, they call all Muslims terrorists because dis da them excuse.
