Ministers Faber and Saldivar bicker about support for Vega

Posted: Thursday, September 7, 2017. 10:03 am CST.


By BBN Staff: Yesterday, photos of the PUP’s protest against Gaspar Vega in Orange Walk flooded social media.

While the protest was on, Deputy Prime Minister of Belize, Patrick Faber posted on his social media page — “for those wondering on a day like today, I do not support or defend corruption and my expectations are that those in our beloved UDP don’t either.”

On the other hand, his former political competitor for leadership of his party, John Saldivar was in Orange Walk supporting Vega.

Saldivar told the media that Vega is innocent until proven guilty and that he is in Orange Walk supporting his fellow colleague despite all the accusations made against him.

Meanwhile, on social media Salidvar posted, “No matter the perception that has been fueled by media and political agents, unless and until Hon. Vega is convicted in a Court of Law, he deserves our solidarity…I stand firmly against corruption and will never support or defend it, but I am also a firm believer in natural justice and our colleague deserves our solidarity unless found guilty.”
