Alverine Burgess says U.S. produced recording of a conversation involving Minister Castro

Alverine Burgess

Alverine Burgess’ ordeal at the U.S. Embassy lasted three hours, and she says that faced with intense interrogation and recorded evidence, she told them all she knew. That includes names of all the persons involved with her in the facilitation of visas for Chinese nationals, and Castro is allegedly right in the middle of it all. Burgess revealed that she wrote a four page statement in the presence of U.S. investigators, and that statement, is now in the possession of U.S. authorities.


Alverine Burgess, Whistle-blower

“They wanted me to give them names…one of the investigators, because they said they were US investigators…wanted me to give them names. He said you can give us from the smallest to the highest…if they are ministers, whatever, give us the names.”


Dickie Bradley

“But they asked you about Minister Castro…?”


Alverine Burgess

“Yes…Mr. Dickie I am not telling you a word of lie…I was very, very scared. My husband was outside and when I came out he himself was scared because he said those people really took a long time with you…what happened?”


Dickie Bradley

“So for almost three hours…or for about three hours you were questioned in the U.S. Embassy about this whole business?”


Alverine Burgess

“I had to. After they did the interview verbally I had to give them a written statement…”


Dickie Bradley

“Which you did?”


Alverine Burgess

“I had to. It outlined everything…it was about four pages and I had to sign everyone.”


Dickie Bradley

“You got the impression that the Americans believe your story?”


Alverine Burgess



Dickie Bradley

“And in these four pages of statement you told them about Minister Castro?”


Alverine Burgess

“I had to tell them about everybody.”


Dickie Bradley

“Yes but we’re not talking about everybody…you told them about Minister Castro? About how many times you went to his office?”


Alverine Burgess

“Yes. I had to tell them that…the same story.”

    Not a word this lady is saying is a lie. We are not lawyers, but while the ministers can think they are safe lying to us, they did not want to believe the PM when he told them to stop it! Just imagine how the world is thinking, Belize is run by crooks, who is there to say it’s not true?

  2. Belmopan says:

    How convenient that the PM is out of the country for an op? The system stinks at large. This guy isn’t even proud of his own Belizean doctors that he has to go out to the US to get an op. What a shame!!!! I find it hard to believe that they are not in it. What is not breaking down in Belize? The education system, the economy, the immigration system, the transportation system, the counsel and city admins, the entire governance.

  3. MIZZ BARROW says:

    Everything was going fine, until I heard the word “American.” The sale of passports approved by my brethren, the issuance of visas in which my brethren gets a kickback, the giving away of land which are actions blessed by my brethren or whatever scandal Belize is living………… is none of the meddling AMERICANS business.

    Why is the world so screwed up today? Meddling Americans.

    if it was not for the meddling Americans, we would never get the truth from the lying politicians, they are always lying to our people, the twenty year old Guatemalan young lady that has been living in belize for over six years, with two belizian born children could at least been allowed to claim dual citizenship from her children, but she could not afford to buy a passport, so she is locked up in jail away from two young belizian children, after which she will be deported, how disgusting, and mizz barrow is saying that every thing was going fine until she heard the word American, going fine for who lady
