Sunday, June 22, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A new board of directors for the Belize Airports Authority has been named.

According to media reports late last week, the new chairman is attorney at law Mikjail Arguelles, with San Pedro businessman Severo Guerrero taking up the post of vice chairman.

Leila Peyrifitte is the secretary of the board while other members are Elodio Aragon, Junior, Nyani August, Tracy Panton Gary Grief and John Waight.

The new BAA board comes six months after the Prime Minister asked the previous board to step down following a scandal involving checks for thousands of dollars issued to junior minister Edmond Castro.

Castro was also subsequently stripped of the portfolio responsibility for Civil Aviation.

That portfolio was assigned to Minister of Tourism Manuel Heredia, Junior.

The Prime Minister is on record as saying that what the previous BAA board did was not corrupt, describing their action as “distasteful.”
