John Saldivar: ‘PUP media houses attempting to smear my name’

Posted: Thursday, January 30, 2020. 7:29 pm CST.

By BBN Staff:  Earlier today, various media houses in Belize referred to an article in the Salt Lake Tribune which stated that in the ongoing case of American-Armenian fraudster, Lev Dermen, Jacob Kingston would testify that Dermen allegedly bribed Belizean Security Minister, John Saldivar.

Those are the allegations being made against Saldivar and a document circulated earlier this month revealing that as part of the evidence in the case, text messages between Kingston and Saldivar would be presented.

In his defense, Saldivar has denied all allegations of wrong doing.

In a statement issued today, Saldivar slammed Belizean media houses for covering the details of the Tribune’s report.

“A publication today in the Salt Lake City Tribune which is being quoted here by the Belize media is totally untrue and leading without basis. The article suggests that Jacob Kingston will testify that Lev Dermen bribed me but does not say in exchange for what. No one knows what Jacob Kingston will say and to anticipate his testimony now is malicious and mischievous. There is no Court document that points to any bribery on my part and I continue to maintain that I have never done any favors for Lev Dermen in return for any cash and there will be absolutely no evidence that Jacob Kingston can truthfully provide to prove otherwise,” Saldivar stated.

The Minister also said that the media houses are ‘PUP’ and are repeating this same unfounded story over and over in a ‘desperate attempt to smear my name without evidence.’
