Does Karen Bevans Have the ‘Guts” to Sue PM John Briceño?

Karen Bevans

We got a chance to ask Prime Minister John Briceño about Bevans’ contract today.  Bevans has threatened, through Barrow and Williams law firm, to sue Prime Minister John Briceño for defaming her in a previous media interview when talking about her contract.  Briceño is sticking to his guns, telling Bevans that she does not want to go down that road.

“If Misses Bevans wants to sue me that is her right as a Belizean citizen. I stand by what I said. I don’t think she wants to go to court because when we set up all the evidence of what has happen during her time it is not going to be a pretty picture. So, I would hope that she decides to go to court but if she wants to go to court then that is her right and I support that.”

“She remains B.T.B. director?”

“She remains the director of B.T.B. with her two hundred and fifty thousand dollars times five.  How much is that?”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“That is a lot of money.”

“A lot of money. Over a million dollars she is going to collect at a time when one of the first things she did in April was fire almost half of her staff because she wanted to save money so I don’t think she wants us to go down that road.”
