Minister Saldivar Responds to Mason’s Allegations

John Saldivar has had his share of controversies as well as allegations made against him, the latest coming out from the ‘Mason Murder Trial’. Mason along with Ashton Vanegas, Kieron Fernandez, Terrence Fernandez, and Ernest Castillo stood trial for the murder of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas and is waiting for the verdict of Supreme Court Justice, Antoinette Moore. At the end of the trial, a bombshell allegation against Saldivar was placed on the court’s record. According to a statement from a U.S. Special Agent, Mason, whose real name is Rajesh Ouelette, alleged that the Minister of National Security was attempting to frame him. It is yet to see how this piece of allegation will play against Saldivar and his political future, but Saldivar believes in the fairness of the Belizean public.

“I think that narrative has already been done and spent. The entire trial took place except for a very last moment hearsay that mentioned by name. Absolutely no evidence was brought out in trial against me. That is where I stand. There is nothing more to say on that issue. The Belizean people have spoken and will speak because I don’t think in any country or in any democracy you can be guilty of something that someone that you know has done some crime that he has done. I know the Belizean people are very fair and including my colleagues who have been very fair about this issue.”

“Ultimately it is not the delegates who will decide the next general elections. It is the population at large and like it or not there is smoke around your name.”

“In any way you turn it when you look at an accusation that has been made against me and you compare that to the many accusations and the record of many in the People’s United Party I think you will find that the Belizean people will prefer my leadership, will prefer my party. the U.D.P.. over that P.U.P. bunch anytime.”
