Is Former Dangriga Area Rep Involved in R.S.L. Fiasco?

The new principals of R.S.L., a company out of Houston, Texas, known as SeaOne, have reportedly entered into a power purchase agreement with B.E.L. for the generation of electricity from Commerce Bight.  It’s an investment that is said to be worth fifty million U.S. dollars.  R.S.L.’s country representative is Breandon Raymond.  According to Indira Mejia, who spoke this morning on Frose’s behalf, the property to which the pipeline will be fed from the Commerce Bight jetty is owned by the former area rep for Dangriga.

“Of interest is a parcel of land directly behind the Commerce Bight port and from the paper trail that I had just shared with one member of the media, that land is owned by the former area representative of Dangriga and that is where the power plant is to be set up.  So he will benefit directly once that power plant is set up on that parcel of land that he acquired from the Government of Belize.  We’re not certain of the number of acreages but it’s directly behind.  The Commerce Bight port does not have the necessary amount of land for the size of the project that SeaOne wants so the former area representative acquired lands directly behind it and we have been given from the former owner, Alan Gobie,  that that was the initial plan.  That he would acquire the lands and that the power project would be set up there.  The main reason for getting the Commerce Bight port was that the pipelines for the LPG would have to run from out of the mooring that will be set up at sea and through the Commerce Bight port and unto that property which is closer to the mile three power station in Dangriga.  So that’s another thing that, you know, has been bugging Mr. Frose that they have invested two million [dollars] and they haven’t gotten back any returns on their two million and to find out that they were secretly, you know, they are secretly in a business with people they never met and sat with or consented to being in business with them.”
