The choice words of Arthur Saldivar for Rodwell Williams

Arthur Saldivar

Belize Rural North Area Representative Arthur Saldivar has his own financial cross to bear. On May twenty-third, the Supreme Court ruled against him in a defamation suit brought by Prime Minister Dean Barrow. In what has been described as the most significant libel award thus far, Saldivar was ordered to pay sixty-nine thousand dollars to PM Barrow and his attorney, Rodwell Williams. On Tuesday, Saldivar attempted to pay two thousand dollars, in dollar coins. That payment was refused because Williams allegedly claims that large debts cannot be paid in coins. Today, Saldivar rebutted that assertion, and he wasn’t nice about it either.

“Coins or whatever it may be, a legal tender. And all about that nonsense that they walking; that vampire that occupies that place on Regent Street—before he resiles back to his coffin at night to sleep—dollar coins are capable of paying any debt. The legislation that he spoke of only addresses shillings and fifty cents and what was sent to him were dollar coins. Check the legislation section twenty-two of the Central Bank Act does not apply to dollar coins. So you can give him that one and present him with a stake…not the type that you eat. (laughing)”


Attorney Rodwell Williams has allegedly applied for his own writ of execution to demand payment in full from Saldivar.
