Minister Perez Says He Is Most Remorseful

Late this evening, Minister Andre Perez issued a seven-page press statement related to the allegations against him. The release comes with selected screen shots of Whatsapp messages between the attorney and himself. He starts by saying that he is most remorseful for the shame he has brought his wife, children and constituents. Minister Perez says that he met the woman before the village council elections in Caye Caulker. Perez says that she had “her own agenda, to seek special favours for her own personal benefits and expedite matters for her clients.” He alleges that she initiated the romantic relationship. The statement says “a few days later in March 2022, she invited him to her office and to his surprise, she did not have her staff there and when he inquired, she explained she told her secretary not to come in early.  At that moment she made sexual advances and he instead of being strong and walking away, he gave in to this moment of weakness, which he is remorseful and regrets.  However, thereafter her texts were of a nature as if they we committed lovers to the extent that “she not only overwhelmed him with texts and compliment but found every opportunity to be closer to him, involved in his work and almost just next to his side”.  There was again only one other sexual encounter which was at the end of April 2022, after she insisted he visit her house to see the remodeling work she had done. The minister says that was no other encounter and he has disclosed all details to his wife and is working on this indiscretion that has caused pain.  We note that the press statement is written like a magazine article that details the allegations against the woman.
