Minister Pablo Marin Suing Brints Security Ltd. Employees

Pablo Marin

Minister of Health Pablo Marin is taking legal action against several employees of Brints Security Limited for defamation of character. News Five understands that the suit stems from a social media post alleging corruption by the minister. Brints Security Limited, which belongs to former U.D.P. colleague Mark King, is claiming that it is being coerced to pay inducements in exchange for the security contract at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.  While we were unable to find that post online, Minister Marin responded saying that that is far from the truth and the process of getting the contract is transparent.

“The only thing that I will comment is that I am taking three persons to court. I have my attorney looking at it because the way we work, everything is transparent. We have to have three bids, four bids. The only time we didn’t have three bids is what we are doing right now with the morgues in Dangriga and one in Cayo; that we had to do that immediately because of the urgency of it. So, we got the quotation and we are about to spend about ninety-five thousand dollars for the two morgues being renovated. But that is the only time, when an emergency comes up. But things like in the bidding for pharmaceuticals or any other contract that you know you have sufficient time, it has to come through a tendering process. So I don’t know exactly what is happening, but I know the first thing that he did or what I saw they put, the Minister of Health. I saw that afterwards they changed it and they put the deputy minister. Anyway, I have to do what I am doing, legally.”
