Port Loyola Constituency Account was also Terminated, Say Boots Martinez

Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez

According to Port Loyola Area Representative, Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez, he, too, received a letter from Scotiabank late in 2019 informing him of the pending termination of his constituency account.  He says that no more than four thousand dollars at any given time was deposited or withdrawn from that account prior to its closure.

“Sometime last year November, I was informed by the bank that the internal policy of the bank, in regards to their policy, they will close all political accounts.  So no, as far as I understand, they said to me that they will not be having no political accounts.  Ih noh really matter where or which party.  So that is their justification and it’s their internal policy.”

“Forgive me for asking but in terms of transactions to your constituency accounts, are we talking about movements of significant sums of money?  What were we looking at, at the point when yours was closed?


Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez

“Basically, four thousand in and out and when mine was closed I had about twenty-five dollars and some cents in there or so.”


Isani Cayetano

“It’s separate from anything that has to do with one’s private accounts in this particular case, correct?”


Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez

“From my private account, yes.  Both my constituency and private accounts are at Scotiabank and I maintain my private account.”
