John Saldivar Issues a Release on Dermen Scandal

The minister, whose name has been swirling in this scandal, issued a statement today. John Saldivar confirms he met Lev Dermen in 2013 and last saw him sometime in early 2015.  He interacted with Dermen on several occasions and did so publicly, including at the Gold Cup in 2013.  But Saldivar rejects any suggestion of involvement in any act of fraud or bribery with Dermen, saying he has not used his office for vile quid pro quo activities and that any such suggestion is motivated by political actors who are intent on seeking political mileage for the imminent elections.  Saldivar tells the P.U.P. he won’t back down and accuses elements in his party of maliciousness and falsehood. He ends his statement with a threat of legal action on anyone who publishes falsehoods about him.
