Minister Martinez Vehemently Denies Allegations of Corruption

Anthony Martinez

Minister Martinez was not inside the National Assembly chambers when Briceño was reading out the list of transactions. He raced to his seat after he was alerted of the revelations by his colleague sitting two seats away from him via a phone call. Martinez anxiously waited to rebut Briceño’s allegations. An angry Martinez denied the allegations, questioning the authenticity of the documents.  Martinez says that Briceño’s statements were false.


Anthony Martinez, Area Rep., Port Loyola

“I am Honorable Anthony Boots Martinez rent no building and collect no money from no ministry. For me, I straight forward just like how you see it. And then you need to understand the Leader of the Oppositions, you used to be in the government, the community vote that you are referring to that go to each ministry and you get it through the National Assembly. You get the same thing every month. That is all I am saying. And let we set the record straight; remember he was talking all kind of thing. There is no record Madam Speaker of the Ministry or government paying me any monies for any rental or premises. So they better get that out of their head because when they talk about corruption me or none of my family members went to prison for drugs. So we are not on that at all. So when they are imputing motive and so, don’t look at me. Look at you and your family. Apart from that, you are talking about you involve with Shell you know sir which makes millions of dollars form government so I just need them to be careful and not throw anything and the a lot of lies when they talk about me, brother, sister with their lair self. They want to look good but the thing does not work like that. But when he was going through the stop sign. I am sorry, I need to defend me and I need to defend my character and he went far. Like what I said again, no family member of mines have ever been arrested and charged and convicted. You look on yourself; look on you and your family. That is the first thing you need to look and that is the fact.”
