By BBN Staff: Former Minister of National Security, John Saldivar, told hosts on Love FM’s morning show today that he “took a certain strategy” to win the UDP convention.
Saldivar admitted that he did not reveal that he obtained money from Lev Dermen before the UDP convention because he says it would have been detrimental to his party.
But he says that leading up to the convention, he shared his message with the 570 delegates and they believed him and voted for him.
Saldivar further asserted that the trial did not reveal any evidence to support allegations that he was bribed.
Saldivar reemphasized that he did not break any laws.
When asked about the increased landing of drug planes in Belize, Saldivar says that Belizean authorities work with the assistance of DEA officials and if there were any involvement of any political official, the Ministry would have known it by now.
