PM Holds Position on Unnamed Bribe Recipients

Dean Barrow

In attempting to defend his position, PM Barrow reiterated what was said at his press conference on Wednesday, that essentially he is hamstrung until and unless names and credible evidence are presented during the upcoming trial involving Lev Dermen in Utah.  He once again emphasized that whomever are the guilty parties will be fired from cabinet.


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“That matter with respect to the proceedings in the U.S. involves unnamed ministers, allegations against unnamed ministers.  I made the point that the allegations are that one minister was getting monthly contributions from this Levon and another minister got monies by way of a wire transfer.  No names have been called, but the trial is soon to commence and presumably once that trial is commenced the evidence that the prosecutor currently tells the judge he is prepared to lead will be led and I repeat that the names clearly will come out and the evidence to prove that they were recipients of money and for a corrupt purpose will be forthcoming.  If or when that happens I say to you sir, and to all members of this house and to the nation, anybody, any minister indeed that have been found to be complicit in any corrupt act and to have received money for purposes of a bribe will be fired by your humble servant.  Thank you Mr. Speaker.”
