Is John Saldivar’s Suspension Enough?

John Briceño

At the end of the Prime Minister’s emergency meeting, John Saldivar was vanished as Leader Elect of the U.D.P. and was placed on an indefinite suspension.  Saldivar will be given a chance to prove his innocence and time for G.O.B. to obtain official transcripts from the Utah court.  P.U.P. Leader John Briceño says that these actions taken by the Prime Minister are an insult to the Belizean people.

“What the Prime Minister has done with issue of John Saldivar is an insult to the Belizean people. He knew all along what was taking place in Utah. He knew all along what was taking place in Utah. He was told. He saw documents that were filed in courts and he refused to take action. We even found out a document today that accused Kingston of having sex with minors and all of crazy stuff. For him to say that he is going to suspend indefinitely John Saldivar and in effect still keep him as Minister of National Security, I think it is an insult. He is saying suspension but yet John Saldivar in his press release to the media he is saying that he is still the Minister of National Security. I find that insulting and that the Prime Minister despite everything refuses to look at the facts and to act.”

“Reality what happened today was a crime against Belize because we feel that on Sunday it was a sham, a very expensive shame. Some people are saying as much as one point five million dollars was spent on that convention but it was a sham. And the only purpose of that sham on Sunday was to get rid of Patrick Faber and having gotten rid of Patrick Faber now Dean Barrow is turning his Machiavellian mind to getting rid of John Saldivar As the party leader has just said Saldivar is saying that he is still the Minister of National Security, the Prime Minister is saying that he has indefinitely suspended him from the Ministry of National Security or from Cabinet. Who is telling the truth? Somebody is lying. Somebody is not being upfront with the Belizean people.”
