Belmopan Mayor Issues Statement on His Encounter with Dermen & Kingston

Now to the photo in circulation which shows Mayor Khalid Belisle and other associates, who are likely to be on the delegates list of this weekend’s convention. They are photographed smiling and posing with Lev Dermen and Kingston in late April or March of 2015 in front of a private jet. This evening, Mayor Khalid Belisle issued a statement acknowledging that he held a meeting Dermen and Kingston at the Philip Goldson International Airport ahead of their departure from Belize. The mayor explains that he had just been elected when the meeting took place because Dermen and Kingston had expressed interest in exploring investment opportunities in Belmopan.  Belisle says that (Quote) “believing that the gentlemen were completely legitimate and above board businessmen, and after cursory checks revealed nothing to the contrary, I proceeded meeting with them.” (Unquote) The mayor says that was the last time he met both men since there was no follow-up from Dermen and Kingston.
