Briceño’s Continued Call for an Independent Investigation into John Saldivar

John Briceño

Former National Security Minister, John Saldivar has been on the airwaves extolling his innocence after he was named in a court in Utah for taking money from the accused fraudster, Lev Dermen.  According to messages revealed during the trial, Saldivar refused a wire transfer of the money and traveled to Miami to pick-up fifty thousand U.S. dollars in cash. Opposition Leader John Briceño says that the Barrow government is not interested in conducting an independent investigation into the alleged corruption by the former high ranking member of the U.D.P.   Assistant Commissioner of Police Marco Vidal has been appointed as the lead investigator for the investigation, but Briceño says that Vidal’s hand will be tied in probing his former boss.

“This government has shown that they have no interest in investigation one of their own and certainly they will not investigate John Saldivar. Mister Marco Vidal while I have great respect for him I think his hands are going to be tired and he will be allowed to do a thorough and independent investigation. That is why we have been saying from day one if the government is serious, if the Prime Minister is serious that he is fighting corruption then he should allow for us to have an independent investigator for us to get to the bottom of what has happened.”
